Discord is ESSENTIAL to have at all times.
I know pings can be annoying, you can alter that to only hear important ones from broadcasting however it's important that you see on going ops rather tahn having to be logged in to EVE all the time. You can also download the app on your phone and can see that infamous "Super tackled" ping and log on if you get the chance to get on those special timely kills.
Your corps i'm sure are pushing the discord mantra however we really NEED you to be on it for all future ops and reactive fleets in our space (particularly at the moment).
