    Running game servers is not a cheap thing to do. I have to take out my time to keep it running smoothly, but also renting the machine as well. I don't rent a server, I rent a machine. This means I can run as many servers as I want, up to the hardware limit.

    I have created a donation system where players can contribute towards the server and website costs and they can get a few perks to come with it.


    VIP BENEFITS

    • Reserved slot on all servers - you can join the game even when it says server is full
    • VIP tag next to your name in game
    • Access to more skins (Zombie Escape). At the moment, this will be 5 VIP human skins
    • A cool medal underneath your name on the forums

    There will a few more interesting things coming soon, but this will be when I have some more free time.

    Some more information about donations:

    • A donation of £3 will create one months of benefits. It goes in stages, so £6 will be two months etc..
    • If you donate £30 over the course, you get lifetime VIP. You don't have to donate £30 in one go.
    • Minimum donation is £3
    • Once you have donated, you are not granted VIP straight away. I will manually give VIP. This is usually the same day, but not always. Your VIP starts from the day its active in that case.
    • Donations are not refundable and benefits can be taken away if the player is always breaking server and forum rules. We can also refuse donations from certain people.
    • If people try to claim back their money, they will be permanently banned. This is a hobby, not a business.

    Now to donate, you need to be registered on the forums. Once you are, there is a DONATE option between FORUMS AND MEMBERS. Click there and it will take you to the donate screen and then onto paypal.

    Hey,
    I was just wondering if you could also make it possible to donate without a creditcard.
    Makes it easier for people who don't have it/feel like using it.

    I will have to look at that and see there is alternative way. I think with paypal, you can donate without a card, but you need to have a bank account obviously.

    Nice, love the Duke Nukem one! I'm guessing more will be added ? Also isn't the Crysis one for everyone? :p

    Yeah sorry the nanosuit is a free skin, as well as the Master Chief ones.

    The three skins on here are the VIP skins

    I was thinking CS:GO Keys could be an option of donation?

    I'm afraid it has to be via Paypal, because I usually sell my cases.

    I've just updated the first post. Donations (in some rare circumstance) will be refused and will be refunded back.

    Have now updated again. If you donate £30 or more, you will get lifetime VIP.

    Congratulations to Cool2beaboy and Mortal Wombat who are the first recepients.
