Donators will keep their rank, but to keep the game balanced in the beginning, all those who have donated before December 25th (the sale, roughly) will re receive all of the resources they donated for, but only after a month as to keep the pacing as balanced as possible. We truly value the opinions of our donators, so if you have any suggestions of how you think it should happen, don't be afraid to post below!

is this retroactive to all donations done previously? im legitimately curious.

curious as if this is a positive response (which i hope it isnt), it would create an XBOX HUEG disparity between players... again.

having good rp doesnt make one fit for staff duties, especially if said people are always playing with the same small group of people and no one else. staying in an echo chamber only makes your own words reflected back to you and whoever else is in the chamber. people applying for staff need to not only know the staff, but also how the playerbase can react to interactions between itself, the general staff base and the applicant

Edited to clear up some confusion.
That's what we want to avoid Jeff, but these people have given us money, and we've made promises we have to keep. We can't just say "thanks for the money" and take away one of the donation perks that was promised. It's just the way it is.

Point is we already got those ressources and spent them on our gear and food and whatnot, this is going to make a huge backlash down the line and I don't feel like getting the ire of fucking everyone when I suddenly a crap ton of ressources again like I have now. Seriously, having shit Tom of ressources is fun for a few days, but then you're left with that "what do I do with this pile of ressources". I started making a bunch of cars, over a dozen of them at my peak, I made 13 nuclear generators and sold 7, made so many solar panels it was stupid and I still had retarded amounts of ressources, and I swear all of it was gained by scavenging and selling items at a profit. Ressources engenders more ressources if its not expendable. Best example I can give are the 30+ worms that Rittz has in game, I mean, you think 10 miners is whack?

When I see this if I try to join the server, it comes as a relief to me. Relief of not being afraid of being framed for tons of shit I didn't do. Relief for not being afraid of messing up a rule. Relief for not having to deal with the admins of Frostburnt. And relief to go to a server where my shots kill stuff, people don't hate me for no reason, and where I can do whatever I want and be treated like a normal person, not a rat held under a microscope under so much pressure to not mess up.

User has been permanatly banned from these forums for the reason "Doesn't want to be here" by Bizzclaw - Honestly I should of banned you a long time ago. And you say you're tired of being treated like "A rat under a microscope"? Sorry, but you've duped, exploited and RDM'd. What did you expect?

Excuse me for being not being able to understand it :p

don't give the ressources back to the donators, myself included. this is a bad idea. a bad idea that will only make everything unbalanced again. I had my ressources, i used them, was fun while i had them, and still mostly do, but seriously, don't give us back our ressource we already spent once. it just completely breaks the whole point of the server reset.

sorry mate, but so far, a crushing majority of the players, myself included, dont want this to happen. i suggest we leave the poll open for another 18 hours before closing it.

I dunno why people are saying no? A month from now everyone will be fairly recovered from the reset and it wont matter if donators get their resources back.....

On another note my opinion is you donate to help the server thrive and survive and keep things running not for the cheesy benefits. So I don't see why its even a big deal if they get their resources back or not, sure you wanna do something nice for your donators considering they are helping fund the server and keep it alive but after a reset for them to get oooodles of teh goods would make it incredibly hard for others who don't have the money/want to donate. It would turn the game mode into a pay to win style thing for the first month or so if you give em the resources right off the bat.

Question: Do us donators re-receive the donator packages that we all lovingly paid for?

We keep our priviledge to craft the VIP stuff, we might keep the XP, but we're not getting the ressources. this is what we've been talking abbout the whole time. read the entire thread before asking questions because you might get the answer yourself
