Discord Rich Presence would be nice add for Wreckfest.

What?

"Rich Presence allows you to leverage the totally overhauled "Now Playing" section in a Discord user's profile to help people play your game together. Rich game data—including duration, score, current boss or map, and so much more—lives inside Discord. You can spectate a friend's game directly from their profile popout, or party up via beautiful chat embeds with real-time information about open party slots and the party's in-game status. No more exchanging usernames and friend codes, or wondering if there's room for you to join. Rich Presence is a living invitation to play together, or to watch your friends kick butt."

Examples

Spotify and osu!

Start to listen same song what user listens. Or make a group and everyone listen same songs what the host is listening.
Or in osu! pic, you can spectate player's game.


So.. What Wreckfest could share on Discord?

- See is player on singleplayer or multiplayer mode
- Progress (what's player's level)
- If plays in server
- - - shows server name
- - - button to join (if server is public)
- - - join to spectate (if spectate mode comes)
- - - placement if race is running
-> -> server user has an option to enable joining in server with Rich presence support
- Server hosters could invite people to join their servers (i know many leagues and small gaming groups uses discord to chat while playing on same server....)

If player doesn't want to share information on Discord it could be an option.

Just an idea  :)
