I've also donated before, but considering the situation of the game I'm not sure if it makes much sense anymore.
In prime time afternoons the server used to be packed with 24 players, but now it's usually 2-7 players, if that. It doesn't help that the few dozen European players who still somewhat actively play are scattered at different hours between two servers (Hirntot and HBC), and after the crash more players seem to have given up. We've been playing for more than 15 years, but it looks like ET is looking at an inevitable demise unless somehow people find their way back.
Hirntot is/was a great server to spend the ET retirement days on and it's a game not easily replaced. But I don't know how long you guys can run an empty server. I think I'll follow the situation for a while, but if it's time, 15 years was a good run...
I totally want to donate, I wanted to do it in the past but I refuse to use paypal. I understand you dont want to accept direct transfers to a bankaccount for doxing reasons, maybe a longtime regular is willing to accept my donation and wire it via paypal to the hirntot crew?
