Hey guys! I personally have donated around $20 on Skycade, and I plan to donate more eventually. I am aware that lots of people have donated on Skycade, and I'm wondering how many people have donated, the ratio of non-donors to donors, and the reasoning for both of these choices. If you are interested in being part of this experiment, please answer the poll, and then leave a comment below with the reason for your choice to either donate or not donate. Thank you for taking part in this poll, some of the more interesting answers may be featured in next weeks issue of Skycade Weekly. Thank you!

First I love cosmetics, In fact, I adore them. Supporting the server is also another bonus.

Since I primarily play op factions the only benefit I would receive from a rank would be the AFK bypass , so I've never been too interested in getting a global rank however the colored names is something ive considered buying before. Since Skycade isn't pay2win I imagine its really difficult to incentivize players to buy ranks. Currently I've given no money to the server.

That is the exact reason I donated, I wanted to help out the server so it can keep running for much longer.

i dont see the need to, because skycade isnt p2w there's nothing that i'd want to buy. i dont like buying stuff in p2w servers anyway but on skycade, i just dont see the need. i can see why some people might want to buy a coloured name to make their name look prettier, but personally, its fine just how it is so im not bothered.

I understand that reasoning for not purchasing anything, however, I feel that there are two and a half main reasons that people do decide to purchase items from the store. First off, people choose to purchase items like name tags, suffixes, and ranks simply for the cosmetic reason, so they look cooler in chat (and possibly in-game if they use /glow or disguises.) The second half of that first reason is that some people want the cosmetic items you can buy on the store simply so they can be noticed and recognized easier in chat. On the other hand, I think the second most popular reason people purchase items is simply to support the server, to keep it running.

I'm waiting for one of those legendary big sales to get Diamond and a few other things, It'll happen one day, I promise :p

ikik i have no purchases but whats the point in getting a name tag for idk 7 bucks or a role for 40 the thing is, its just a cosmetic. it doesnt affect how you play you still play the game normally. so i would like to buy something but there wouldnt really be a point (OPINION)

Well said, I personally believe that the urge and incentive to buy a rank is less however this is what makes the majority of the community so pure. Non pay2win really is this best model for all servers if they want a sustainable community.

Absolutely agree, I think you just explained what I was attempting to say in my response in a more clear way, thank you :D

I'm just planning to buy all of the cosmetics which is a lot of money but it's worth it in my opinion. Before this server connected with EvoPvP, I spent £380 on a rank which was pretty stupid tbf.... I really shouldn't have done that. That was when it was pay 2 win. Thanks for letting me share! :D

No problem, thank you so much for sharing! I'm glad to hear you'll be supporting the server!
