May 2021 Donations & Finances

  • Homecoming Team

Hello everyone, and Happy Homecoming Anniversary! Today marks two years since Homecoming started and it still amazes me how active and supportive the community is after all this time. We cannot thank you all enough for your continued support, we just hope that you’re enjoying the game and the updates that we put out.

 

Now, 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.

 

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.

 

Additionally, 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 37 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!

I want to give special thanks and recognition for the developers this month.

Back in March they wowed me with the color tintable "slide power",

but now they have taken it a step further with a massive travel power overhaul!

Because of this, I am doubling my contribution this month.

Great job team!
