Donating

How much does donating help the server to stay alive?
How does it help?
Im scared that Emps-World will die just now when i discovered this. It killed me inside already when Emps-Scape got shut down, and im willing to pay few hundred by donating to help the server stay alive. so pls do tell would it help and how much would it help etc, is there some topic where i can study more about donating? or is there any more ways to help the server than donating and inviting friends to play (Dont want to brag,but ive got 3 friends to play the game)

I guess keeping the server up isn't much of a problem as the game would be long shut down if emps didn't pay for itself.
The problem is increasing our playerbase which is more difficult. The more money Thomy gets from donations the more he could advertise the game tho which might and might not bring us some new players.

My understanding is that the playerbase has dropped like a motherfucker recently :/ is that correct?

The player count has always had its highs and lows, depending on the season/holidays and whatnot. Recently we had ~100 players online daily which was nice, right now it seems to be around 60ish again. Nothing too dramatical but we haven't and most likely never will reach our former glory again.

ِAfter every update / something new gets added to the game, some players start playing again.
as we are expecting a new boss soon, that mean we might hit 100+ again

I would guess the money goes into upkeeping of the server and ads.

It's normal for player count to go down between updates on free to play games. I do not have access to the player graph of Emps, but I can show the same happening on another f2p game I play, Warframe. Here's the graph for 2016:



The biggest peaks Emps has had have been around 120-150 after updates. Then they tend to slowly decrease to 70'ish and whenever a new update comes, the peaks increase again.
