    To all our Community members and players,

    I want to take a moment to talk to you about the game servers.

    In recent months, longer, over the last year, server costs have gone up. We are and have been happy to offer games like 7 Days to Die, Empyrion, Rust, etc., to our community and the public in general with a level of support that keeps things running and the gaming fun. Game play on EAG has always been free, but the cost for hosting these games in not.

    For the past several years, EAG has been blessed by a generous donor who has been the main supporter of our community server costs. At this time however, they are no longer able to continue the level of support they have up to this point. This creates the necessity to determine how we go forward. The game support and our commitment to providing the best gaming experience we can for you is still there, but we must find a way to cover the costs of running these games. We have never asked for players to pay for the privilege of playing on EAG servers, and we will not do that now. We have always gratefully accepted any donations that players chose to give us for the game servers and community in general, and have always maintained a portal for doing that on the forum site.

    We are looking into other ways to generate funds needed to keep our community servers running without interruption, but now we must also ask directly for the community members to provide whatever support they can. If we could get a few dedicated donors who could commit to whatever monthly donation they are able, it would go a long way to help.

    Stinefelt, the Admins and Game Devs, will continue to donate our time and effort to keep up the support you have come to enjoy with EAG, as well as donating financially.

    We know times are difficult for everyone financially, and we understand for some donating is impossible. But we must find a way to cover costs of running our servers or face the possibility of having to shut some or all of them down. We are therefore asking you, our community for whatever help you can give to keep all of us playing the games we love.

    We will hopefully be implementing a more comprehensive donation program for those who want to commit to monthly support for the community, in the mean time for them and those who wish to give a onetime donation you can do so here: http://community.eag.space/donate/#donateForm

    If you wish to donate an amount not listed in the drop-down menu, please use the ‘Custom’ option.

    If you have any questions or suggestions please post them in the Suggestions Thread under the 'EAG SERVERS' section of the forum. You can also contact me via private message either on discord or the forum site.

    Thank you so much everyone for your support, and thank you for gaming with EAG.

    Hitliz
