GB Battlefield 3 server renewal - Donations needed!

#1 Edited by AhmadMetallic (18954 posts) -




I had recently announced that I was going to stop running our servers since the same 20 or so regulars are the only ones who care to play on it, but after some requests to keep it a while more, I thought why not, it's too early to cancel it anyway.  Maybe future expansion packs or TNTs will get some action going on there. 

So as you guys know, Rolyatkcinmai and I rented two servers for the GB community by raising funds using this thread, before the game came out.
We purchased a 3-month deal which costed 175 USD for each server.  
The first 3 months are almost over, so it's time to pay for the server again. 
P.S. Big thanks to Thornie, Branthog, YoThatLimp, Liber, DroopDK, VIGGO and all the wonderful people who donated large sums of money back then and helped Nick & I reach the goal extraordinarily fast.
 I cancelled the UK server btw, so we only need to renew the US one.

I don't think PayPal accepts sperm as a currency.

I chipped in $20. I should probably try and play my copy of BF3 at some point.

I am probably skipping Amalur, so here is the 50 I would have used for it.

Said I would donate last time but all the fees had already been paid before I had a chance, so I donated as much as I could now that I no longer have a job.

You guys are awesome.

Once again we reached the desired goal really fast. Crazy generous people around here, man. Thank you to all those who donated, whenever there's a TNT or the server is full, you get a reserved slot.
Special thanks to @Mosdl for donating sixty five fucking dollars, now that's dedication to the game right there.

Was helping test the donation link. Apparently PayPal is serious about getting their cut.

Why is the UK server cancelled? :(

Granted, I wasn't on there often, but when I was I had loads of fun.

@Ravenlight: Damn serious indeed! Haha.

Damn, I didn't check the forums until this morning and missed this. Well, I'm in for donating next time around.

But Swoxx has some high quality stuff. I got 5 gallons from him a few months ago, still using it today.

@swamplord666: I will accept a steam gift to make up for it.

@TheHBK: sshhh
