Hi, i run a community by 2015, since 2017 we have a NPL license, a couple days ago i saw my server was shutdown, so i rebooted it, after 2 minutes it shutdown again.

So, i opened the server logs and i saw this:

my license it's still valid! I had to remove licensekey.dat and run the server with nolicense and i lost users

I'm very frustrated to see this happen, I'd like to know if you've contacted their support at least in order to know the reason (if they tell you) ... So you have your website online terms? It's that I predict that they will "eliminate" every holder of NPL ..

PS: Bad english i know.

Many people have already contacted support. TeamSpeak support has become very slow to respond, they are also unhelpful.

Reference these posts from the TeamSpeak forum:

TeamSpeak user:
When are you going to open the registration for NPL ? Thanks.
TeamSpeak support:
It says so on the NPL registration page.

TeamSpeak has no clue wtf they are doing. Expect your license to turn into a bird that flies in front of a semi and gets hit!!

From TeamSpeak staff themselves:
What you both saw was a desired behavior while we did/do prepared our accounting server to work with old servers and licenses.

Numma: your license only did update to the new license type. The end date wasn't touched when the license type was updated. The start data was touched when your license was updated in our system.

Schlumpi: Some NPL licenses where touched/updated twice in our system so it could be that one of these is yours. (with updated i don't mean the end date.)
Basically they are admitting to having autism ;)

To be honest, if the team Mesmerize didn!t leave , TS could get fucked and we just would have used cracks nowadays. The reason why they're not providing NPL is just so silly....
From the post Ive seen above I could honestly say ,that the TS3 is gonna go end really soon.... Or They will rapidly change everything and everyone will have to pay for the connections,
Looking for solution for a long time. Discord ain't bad platform but they are just 3rd party company without your own server hosting option. Take a look at the Mumble, U could host your own server as a TS3 does, but you have to pay for slots and buy licence, no free 32 slots. If TS3 CEO get mad and really will wants to earn some cash ,they will apply this way....
At this time the world just need some creative programmer/coder and redesign TS3 with a brand new platform and engine to use for free.

Yes, I already understood. I asked a question on the official site, they answered me this ...

So if I'm reading this I'll switch to teaspeak sooner or later if their client is going to be good in the near future

if their client is going to be good
That is a big if - they basically reverse engineered the TeamSpeak 3 protocol which is useless because they're going to have to remake the client(s) and server(s) as newer TeamSpeak releases and features arrive. Reversing TeamSpeak is really only useful for development or security testing. Remaking TeamSpeak 3 is a bad idea because their software is licensed and protected under copyright. Taking their software is illegal since 2007 based on how one would recreate TS3.

But if you are living in Germany, the things are a bit more complicated. In 2007 they outlawed with a very unspecific law the use and possession of network analysis tools, reverse engineering tools and any way to circumvent copy protection, access denial systems or others.
Want more info? Just read over here. R4P3 is unaffiliated with Germany - not the same for some ".de" domain holder. :cool:

:( There would be no new free Teamspeak License?
There will be no more free version, they decided to do only paid tariffs.

I think it will only get worse.

I think to create a free hosting based on the old version, and it seems to me that the idea is good, because they themselves have abandoned the old versions of servers and clients.
