I absolutely wish Matrix could crush Discord. An entire generation of users came out burned by programs like Skype, Hangouts, MSM, Facebook Messenger, etc and then threw themselves eagerly into another closed ecosystem messenger just because it was one of the first to manage a really performant web client.

I think it can, but it will take time. It is up to the community and userbase to adopt it as much as it is up to the team behind the software.

Yeah I think the potential is there, but Riot will probably need features like Push to Talk and other gaming-oriented stuff.
