As a relative small, non representative part of ED, and as part of the non disclosure speculation bs that floats around random peoples heads, let me just say:

Thanks! And you're welcome!!
I might be drunk posting.

Ye right, another shut down and saying that it was blizz :ph34r:
Why the f they would care about any of the 500 servers with less than 100 players. Think about it

so they are raising money for hardware? while the reason should be to do not be shutdown by blizz?
either way, they are famous for taking donations and shutting down so that doesn't interest us. That's the reason we don't allow advertising other servers as in most cases such things happen

I now read that its lawyer fee's lmao if someone believed it :ph34r:

what I wonder is.. we all want the same goal.. why the F cant we just cooperate? .. ED with XXX and XXX servers ? instead of hating .. we all want the same goal but for some it is banreasons to talk about other peoples goal even that it is the same: good old vanilla wow.
Thers so many skilled admins n developers that we should be able to gather people @ 2-3 servers and make them work together instead of against eachother and split people even more.

@TechnoMulen

As you can see there're "money" in this business....as such....dog eats dog.

They want money, we want progress. Its a known story of servers asking for donations before shut down - its simple, small servers don't really have "a plan" that's why they are small. And running a small server is pain in the ass.
Let me guess, once they raise the money, they will win a lawsuit against blizzard? LMAO

That is not true. Most of our server issues came from such developers. But we still take them for work, everyone deserves a chance

Feenix is always open for co-operation. We are even planning to share our core with other servers on the long run, but not with scammers.

Many ED players are there, till they will learn how such servers run. Its all about the hype, you can search history of these private servers and you will see that there were hundreds (or even thousands) of players disappointed that way.

We need exactly $41,948.96 for hardware.

They want nuclear power plant, right?

anyways Athairne when you see the amount of money being collected from donations ( to keep the server online without vote points n such ) wouldent it be good for ED to reconsider the current future when it comes to how you guys want to gather finances to keep it online ?
I am quite sure that ED can run pretty much on donations aswell.

What I meant there, is they most likely are NOT running a "donations scam".

The claim is, their previous host(s) don't want the trouble of defending against blizz, so they just fold when blizz asks them to do so. It's much better for them to lose one customer ( that private server) than getting into legal disputes with an alpha game company.
