Update to Donation Packages

Contributions Update

Hi all!

As of today, donation packages now stack. This means, when you buy one donation package, you can upgrade to the next tier with a discount of what you've already donated. It is essentially a "tiered" system.
This will work for anybody who is currently a donator and is interested in upgrading to the next tier(s) of rank. When you log into the Hollowworld Contribution page, you will automatically see your discounted price next to the original price (which is in red) of the next package.

Example:

1526450615398.png


We've also added a [Mystic] rank in light of all new arcane folks in training springing up. {Check it out here!}

Anybody who is already the Legend rank and would like to have the rank-coloring of Mystic or Blessed while keeping the permissions/titles of Legend, this is now possible by using a "Keep Hollowworld Alive" token to have your color changed to either the Blessed or Mystic ranks.

Any questions feel free to ask below.

I personally prefer the Mystic rank colors versus the purple, is there a way to change from one to the other in game?

You’d have to purchase the lower rank on another account if you wanted the new rank at the moment. Those with Legend ranks, at least, have the ability to use all new titles available.

I’d be willing to look into how to keep lower rank title donations once you climb ranks, but it won’t be an immediate pursuit.

They didn't always stack? I was given Legend a few years ago for passing it in total donations
They did not automatically stack. Players had to purchase packs separately. There’s been confusion over stacking packages in the past few months with what people have been told and with how things were run in the past, so I decided to make donations easier.

Hi all.

We've decided to offer Legend ranked user to change to Mystic or Blessed rank-color while keeping all titles and permissions, however it will cost you a token, which you can get by donating through the "Keep Hollowworld Alive" option. Similar to intro/exit messages or custom titles.
If you would like to do this, contact a staff member when you have a token and tell them what rank color you would like - Mystic or Blessed - and they can set it up for you.

Will update original post as well.

Thanks!

It only takes paypal and I do not have paypal only card so HW no get my monies : (

Also what if we have donated on two different 'accounts'? I have hero on 'Hiraetha' and 'smurf58105' which is 60 (legend) combined.

Paypal is easy though. You link it to your card.
Rrrrrrrrr I don't like putting my card through multiple stages.

I also don't know if my discount would count as legend (where I'd only have to pay 5, not 10) because I've donated on the two separate contribution accounts.

As stacking accounts didn't occur before officially on the forums, we'd be counting transactions after today towards the tier of ranks. But- if you do bump your rank up to blessed, mystic or legend, it'll be able to carry over to one alt account. So both accounts can share the rank for one donation upgrade. We'll be staying consistent with rank sharing with one alt.

Alrighty. Will PayPal remain the only way to pay?

Smurf This is coming from a frequent eBay seller-- Paypal is a safer middleman for money transactions anyways. I'd recommend you not do direct charges against your cards, having a middleman is good practice, especially for one as trusted as Paypal.

Is the Hero rank still 15 USD? It says back to 30 on the website.
It us 30 USD, but it works like tiers now! Buying Patron (15 USD) means all other ranks cost 15 USD less than what they do if you had no rank. Hence why Hero is shown as being 15 USD in the example image.

Other than titles what other rewards are given out for donating? Any monetary incentive? Donor specific chats/Discord rooms/ privileges? Abilities? Fly used to be locked behind a donation. Now there is an option to use Radiants. Maybe some abilities can be paid for with cash as well as with Radiants? Maybe a separate resource world? I know that since those days the world of gaming as whole changed drastically, but I'm more than happy to excuse smaller servers using such monetisation options.

Most of the options you spoke about violate Mojang's EULA that mandates servers can only sell cosmetic options as part of donation packages, such as in our case, Titles, colors and ability to use /nick infinitely (Legend). Anything game-altering is no longer allowed since they changed the EULA a couple years ago.
