    Yeah I have 1k users in my discord and not one of them wants to double their subscription to give us perks we should already have. Great idea, executed very poorly. Shame on you guys. Do you have any idea how many people you got excited and then disappointed?

    Totally agree. I don't have use for the games since I use Linux and they are not available for this platform.

    Heck, if money if what you want let us buy boosts individually.

    All of the boosts benefit servers and chatting. So why lock it behind the one meant for games? People pay $4.99/month to support discord, it has no benefit beyond some animated emojis and using them in any server that allows them. Which is cool, but not worth $4.99. I pay it to support discord. Let the people who are paying for classic because they want to support you support their servers also. Because they are using it for voice communication and not as a game launcher. They might have no interest in the games you have available, so why force people to get services they do not want/need just to make their server community better?

    Nitro is advertised as being chat perks plus games
     
     
     
     
    1. Boosting IS a chat perk 2. Nitro is being advertised as nitro classic with games Completely unfair, they should both boost

    Possible suggestion:

    Allow Nitro Classic to have 1 boost.

    Allow Nitro (with game) to have 2 boosts, but can only use 1 boost per server?

     

    (not sure if already suggested)

    Yes please! -_- ; NITRO CLASSIC is not worth of 4.99 USD a month and you are planning to not give server boost perk to nitro classic ; that's totally unfair, it is one of the reason that is making me to think to quit discord classic nitro subscription... Don't think just about your own profit  please -_-

    Seconded. There's many users who have no need to get regular nitro due to being on mac, mobile, or simply not wanting the games. I know people who don't even have discord on desktop.

     

    I understand the attempt to push a store, but I have classic nitro and I'm not interested in the games.

    Honestly haven't even seen anyone with the upgraded nitro yet

    Instead, I'm super eager to get the perks on my server and I'm sure some would like to use a boost on it as well, but forcing it exclusively on regular nitro will just make it annoying. I lead an art community, so I don't even have an excuse to suggest anyone upgrading.

    Let classic nitro users give half the boost and call it a day, what drawback is there in that? In the end it'll give us even more reasons to support.

     

    TL;DR:

    server boost = yay

    games = meh

    gib classic nitro 1/2 boost power

    everyone happy

    I don't understand why this is "good."  I just purchased a year of Nitro Classic recently for $4.99 /m.  If I want to boost my server its another $4.99 /m.  It's the same price as just getting Games Nitro.  I should've just gotten Games Nitro in the first place then...

    The point of this thread was to allow Classic users an option to boost without paying another $4.99 /m extra.  If you pay for Classic and also want to server boost, you might as well just get the games package too as it's the same price for less content now.

    All this does help people who don't already have Classic.  It's a big middle finger to the people that have been paying for Classic and supporting Discord but not early enough to get Grandfathered in.

    On top of that, they want to increase the level requirements now making this harder for smaller servers.  Overall, this just seems like an attempt to gather as much money as possible as opposed to compromising with Classic users at all.  Why not make is $1.99 /m for Classic users to boost or something that seems more fair to me.

    $5 definitely seems like way too low value proposition for just a boost. $2 would be reasonable, it's sad that nitro classic doesn't have it included, very few people care about discord games.

    I'm completely agreed with that :

    Add a way for Nitro Classic subscribers to boost a server.
    Add a way for Nitro (with game) subscribers to boost 2 servers.

    @Cosmic Yes! That's exactly my suggestion. 1 boost to Classic, 2 to Nitro, only one boost per server allowed.

    I think it's the best and fairest solution.

    With the closure of Discord's game subscription service, I think this post needs a lot more attention. Classic nitro is worth $5 a month but a single server boost simply isn't worth that. Maybe make server boosts a one time payment as an alternative to the suggestion of this post?

    I too would like you guys to bring back the $4.99 a/mo $49.99 a/year nitro classic for everyone and let this boost our servers.

    and heres why! I believe Every penny counts, you guys are in the business of making a profit and keeping your business growing. I as a consumer and server owner (if were a large server or small it does not matter) become your sales pitcher by default. I want what the nitro perks offers a server. and you want the money company side.

    I mean no negativity here in any light. Its a really smart business model.
    But me as the consumer and sales pitcher. Its far far easier to to suggest someone to subscribe for $5 than it is $10.

    $10 is a game, a Pizza, lunch for two days and more for a kid
    and a good amount for saving /or bills for the adult.
    when you set that bar pretty low for entry you can incentivize more ppl to hop on the bus because its affordable.

    Atm Discord does not offer more than what you get for an amazon prime subscription, a hulu or netflix, or even sams or costco.

    So its entry fee should reflect what it is.
    I think will see a LOT more subscribers if you can bring this back.

    (posting this on the mega thread too)

    I still think that server boosting should be allowed for those that have nitro classic without any extra subscriptions needed cos at the end of the day, those that have paid for nitro classic are still a paying customer, and now that games is no longer included in nitro there isnt much point in paying for the full nitro anyway

    I don't mind giving a little extra here and there, but to double my Nitro subscription is just out of the question. I don't play any of the games or anything. I got Nitro for the emotes. Maybe if you have Nitro classic, you can pay an extra 10 bucks to throw a year-long boost on a server. I'd do that. But not monthly.

    I agree, both tiers should be able to boost and IMO the only possible solution to this is let both boost but make the $10 tier count as +2 where classic is +1.

     

    The way its set up right now seems fairly money grubby and crappy to hide a great feature that could easily net you more subs if the $5 tier was able to participate, but isn't being done that way.

     

    Maybe instead let people pay for a year of an ability to boost with paying $10 once or bake it in like my initial line up top of this post.

    Just allow both levels of Discord Nitro boost ONCE a month. I don't get why it has to be that Classic gets cucked when it comes to this. Nitro already gets loads of games why keep bundling all the perks leaving Classic users left out. 5 dollars for a single boost is a bit much. If I really need to pay more for boosting just tack like 2 dollars on my classic sub. Doubling my sub just to boost doesn't seem worth it.

    Edit,

    I would upgrade my tier of Nitro but I have no use for the games since my steam library already has most of these games. The boost is a great idea but its not enough for me to increase my sub. 100 dollars a year is a lot to ask for since I'm not going to be using what the driving factor of the 100 dollar sub is for, its not for me.

    Yashu, isn't the cooldown for switching which server you want to boost?

    I think it would be better to have the Server Boosts sold separately, and the prices tiered to which sub you have.

    IE:
    Non-subs: 3$ per boost
    Classic: 2$ per boost
    Regular: 1$ per boost

    Yes, nitro classic should be able to boost servers as well

    I have to agree with this post. You should also allow classic nitro user like me to boost a server too. I promised a friend that I would boost her server but if they only allow nitro (with games) users to boost, I will have to upgrade to the 99.99 one (since I want a yearly).

    I got a 49.99 classic subscription and to pay extra 50$ to get a yearly nitro with games I wont ever play to boost a server is extremely ridiculous.

    Even the 9.99/month is also not worth the money for me.

    Nobody wants to spend $10 a month for as long as the server is up. I can’t believe the boost gets taken after nitro runs out. You still payed $10 that month, why should the boost get removed after nitro expires? And then the perks from the server get taken away. Like we already earned the icon why can’t we just keep it, Is $40 for 2 people boosting for 2 months not enough for discord to let us keep the animated icon? Probably going to stop paying until this is fixed :/

    Reposting my response from elsewhere: 

     

    Hey - yeah. I would also like some Boost related feature for Nitro Classic.  I am not interested in the games pass upgrade and frankly can't really afford it but would love my current subscription (and that of my server members) to unlock more emoji space/banners/bandwidth.
    Also. I get this is really cool for larger servers that are constantly looking to expand but I run a very small server of close friends and it would be great if Boost or something similar could work for us. We love Discord as a service and many of us are Nitro Classic members because we want the platform to thrive. 

    As an aside; we also have - so many other games libraries and library subscriptions that Nitro+ isn't really a draw for most of us. It's cool you have this as a service but I think there's a large number of Discord users for who it's redundant - and Boost doesn't add enough value for me to want to upgrade. 

    Edit: I get you're a business and want to make money and expand but you really need to put out an offer that is based on the Discord platform and service and not just a series of additional premium perks. I would like to - for example - pay a fixed amount of month to just unlock all of the gubbins for my one server. I don't need insentivised growth. Just a straightforward pay X for Y. Like with website hosting. 

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Additional suggestion: 
    Whilst I don't really want the games library it would be neat if you could implement a system where - on individual servers - all Nitro Classic members (or some new arbitrary membership tier) could access one set game for that month (chosen by the server owner/voted on). That would be a cool way of communities accessing new games together - feel interactive - encourage more users to pay a small fee for some content etc. 

    Those are my two cents worth anyway. Take care.

    I know it has been stated that Nitro classic users will be able to boost servers in the future but this isn't good enough. At present these perks are only seen on larger servers. I think I've seen just one smaller community higher than level 1. This is an absolutely asinine approach when Nitro classic is advertised as giving chat perks. Expecting a smaller community to collectively pay $50 per month for minimal mostly cosmetic perks is not only shady but clearly deliberate as profits are the only focus here. I feel bad for the thousands who have likely purchased Nitro classic only to realize they needed to spend more in order to boost. We know you could fix this right now if you wanted to but by delaying this it's just reinforcing the notion that you're less about community and more about money. I'm sure discord employees are rolling their eyes at this but it's true.

    I bought Nitro classic thinking it would give me a server boost because the wiki and advertising page says the only difference between $49 and $99 was the games. Please make it very clear on your purchasing pages that you don't get server boost with classic.

    I genuinly understand where they're coming from with the 10$ thing but, I really dont want to pay an extra 5$ just to boost some servers. I don't even need the games either. The entire "Nitro Games" seemed like a good idea until they had games I just didn't like or already had on steam.

    Also it would useful for people with a yearly classic subscription to be able to upgrade for a single month, instead of having to pay 50$ for a whole year of upgraded nitro

    The idea is quiet appropriate according to me and the server boost is not completely launched so atleast add it before taking it to the wild.

    While I understand the meaning between basic and premium nitro, I don't understand why they didn't add both for the boost option. You're still paying for perks and supporting the discord community. I highly agree to give basic to receive the boost option, probably reduce the amount of how much it can boost than what premium can.

    Nitro classic is about chat perks the issue I have with the current plan is that Boosting a server is about chat perks. Further I'm mainly using Linux and Nitro games don't even work there making a full subscription pretty worthless.

    As a Linux user, Discord Nitro's games are worthless to me at the moment, which is why I'm a Nitro Classic subscriber.  However, I'd still like to be able to boost favorite server...
