Hey, Storm fans!
I would first like to start by thanking everyone who has helped contribute to theepicstorm.com and all the hard work they’ve put in over the last FIVE years (It’s hard to believe that its been that long). Everything you see on this site is done out of love for the game, and more specifically — the Storm mechanic. Our writers and contributors aren’t paid and have to deal with my high-standards on a month-to-month basis. I can’t express how much their dedication means to me.
It’s been a year since the last fundraiser for the website, which means that it’s come time to make a payment to our domain and hosting provider. I’m writing today to ask that if you enjoy the content, articles, videos, sideboard guides, and much more to consider showing your support financially to the #TESteam.
We understand that now is a very difficult time. Many are without work due to COVID-19 or are using their spare money to support important causes such as Black Lives Matter. If you can’t afford to donate, that last thing any of us would want is for someone to stretch themselves thin.
In the past year, we’ve made some significant improvements when it comes to site speed, and that came at a cost. We paid to be on a faster dedicated server to increase our response time. Because of this, we’re seeing an increase in hosting fees from $220 to $325. Anything past this amount will help cover costs for the annual gift for the website’s team members (you may have seen last year’s red TES pullover in a video or stream).
Thank you in advance for any donations that help keep the website going and up-to-date with current strategies & content!
