March 2021 Donations & Finances


Recommended Posts

  • Homecoming Team

Hello everyone! I hope you’re doing well and have enjoyed the Spring Fling event.


As usual, a quick reminder that there are more ways to support Homecoming than just through donations. For a general overview of the different ways you can help Homecoming, check out this thread.


If you have Discord Nitro then please consider using a Nitro server boost on our public Discord server. Maintaining over 30 Nitro boosts gives all of our members new and enhanced features on the server including additional emojis, a higher upload limit, better voice chat quality, and our vanity URL. Click here to read more about Server Boosting. We’re currently at 34 boosts and will lose our Level 3 perks if we drop below 30 for more than a few days. We greatly appreciate everyone who has put their Nitro boosts towards our Discord server!


Additionally, we’re always in need of more people to help test upcoming updates on our public beta server; the bug reports and feedback that we receive from testers helps us immensely. For more information on how to get started on the beta server, check out our Read This to Get Started thread and the rest of the Beta Forums.

I am donating more than 3 times my normal donation this month because prestige travel power: "Slide" was made color adjustable.

So who ever made that happen, I greatly appreciate!

Sometimes, it's the little things that matter most.


Please keep up the good work!

>$622.00 to pay the latest invoice from our primary legal counsel

This line makes me happy. Not happy that lawyers are getting paid, but happy that HC is passing at least some of their activities through legal counsel. (Sooper sekrit NCSoft talks?!?! Maybe, maybe not.)The more robust the game is in terms of legality, the more reason we have to expect it to stay around for the duration.

If the goal is hit am I not allowed to donate further? I nitro boosted but really want to donate, I've missed this game so much.

Next donation window should be Saturday, March 27.  Just watch for the announcement on Discord, or here in the forums for the opening of the window.  But, do it quick.  They tend to hit their goal, and close donations within an hour or two these days.
