    It says all donations go toward the game, but specifically How? What’s your plan when you hit the 50k goal? Another dev hired? One switched from volunteer for full time?

    How many paid employees are there currently compared to volunteer?

    Details would be interesting to hear if possible. Makes it easier to decide to invest in something when there is a very detailed outline.

    We currently have two developers who take a paycheck, and the rest of us work on a volunteer basis.

    $50k will give us a financial cushion to complete the Embers of War expansion, and depending on how much activity and cash shop purchases continue to increase it may allow us to get additional developers and artists on the payroll. Doing so will ultimately enhance our development capabilities and portfolio of available cash shop items for sale.

    Does that mean if it never reaches 50,000 EoW will not be released?

    No it means that we can keep up full time development to maintain our velocity and have some financial security to offer our devs a longer term contract. This secures our ability to provide the expansion in a reasonable time frame. We can also provide a little cash for some volunteers that are heavily involved in the development of the project.

    Depending on subscriptions and coin sales the 50k milestone may allow us to hire additional staff as well. We'll produce the expansion regardless but these funds will get it done properly.

    Our whole skin system is based around being able to tell what weapon your opponent is using, this was a major problem in UW and why our system works like this.

    I only use Greataxes. All that I've used from dfo NA launch, through the limited time I played in UW, and will for all of my future ROA days. Would like a cool GA skin in the near future!
