    100% Make it classic, I mean games and server boosting have nothing to do with each other I mean come on discord. You made a oof. Now you can fix it.

    MOST PEOPLE WHO BUY CLASSIC IS BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT GAMES, SERVER BOOSTING A A DISCORD FEATURE NOT GAMES.

    we need this, it actually helps people who are broke help boost their own server, if it isnt added for nitro classic, it would be a disadvantage.

    Yes. Nitro Premium is supposed to be everything in regular Nitro and then games. Why is server boosting any different? I would definitely buy Nitro if server boosting was included.

    People in my severs are getting shoutouts, perks, etc when they get nitro boosted but here I am I don't want real nitro as I DON'T WANT THE GAMES but if I get Classic, then I won't be able to boost. Like kimbjo said, the full nitro is for GAMES, and now Classic members are getting kicked to the curb. How bout $1/month or less add on for classic for boosting, and full nitro still has it included.

    The Boosts was something that would have convinced me to finally get Nitro Classic. I'd been teetering because I didn't feel ~$50/year was worth it to just give me some chat perks (if it were $29.99 I'd go for it). But, since boosts were left out of Nitro Classic, I feel like I'm even less likely to do it.

    I don't want the games. I don't even have enough time to play the games I do own. But I love Discord as a chat program and would love to boost a server.

    I think the people of Discord don't realize that nobody wants their games.

    10$ per month for games you never play is really something.

    And 5$ per month just for some extra chat options also feels like a rip-off, considering so many people nowadays ask for monetary support. I'd rather put my money up for a good cause (like White Well-being)  than feeding Discord + PayPal/any credit card company if it is not worth the investment.

     

    As far as I am concerned, 5$ a month is plenty enough to justify the server boost option.

    To set this into perspective, here is an example of how overpriced Discord is:

    In Europe, a 12 month Nintendo Switch Online membership costs 20 Euro (which is is about 22.40 US$), which allows access to a lot of quality retro games manufactured in the past by Nintendo.

    That's about 1.87 US$ per month for all online services Nintendo provides.

    Discord Classic costs 4.17 US$ per month, which only has very limited features and not even games, let alone the boost option.

    That's about 2.23 times as expensive as Nintendo for less content access.

     

    In my opinion there is no reason to acquire Discord Nitro Classic [aside of the option to boost a server, which is currently not enabled for classic] as the option is overpriced.

    Let us be realistic here: The server boost option is basically a server acquisition fee payed to Discord by the non-server owners. If you have 2 people paying 8.24 US$ per month just to reach lvl 1 Nitro boost, you've secured ~16.50 US$ of server revenue.

    for 16.50 US$ you can already rent a well-made dedicated server, just to run Discord services a 1.50 US$-server would suffice.

    Now imagine 50 people boosting for lv 3, that's a revenue of 412 US$ per month, which is enough to fund a 20 core 3.9 GHz dedicated server (costs about 240 US$ a month maximum if located in Germany) with a lot of left-over money.

    Seeing how one person alone with Nitroboosting covers the costs of the Discord server already (even if we go by a Classic subscription standard), I don't see the reason to lock server-boosting behind full Nitro other than to "encourage" people to use the gaming section of Discord.

    This is very short-sighted from a management perspective, as it'd be way easier to cover the money spent on services provided by enticing people to buy your "cheap" Nitro Classic subscription instead, as 4.17 US$ a month are way less of a hurdle to pay for a subscription fee than 8.24 US$.

    I will not purchase a nitro boost at all unless classic nitro has server boosting as well. I do not care about the free games. That is not why I use discord. Classic was there for users to receive the same discord perks but without the free games, and now it's not anymore.

    I'd gladly give $4.99 a month for the server boosting and chat perks. But not $9.99 for something I'll never use which is the games.

    Agreed to everything said in the OP. Also boosts should be permanent for a server. Server admins shouldn't be scrambling to find a new booster within 3 days just so they don't loose their custom banner and new emojis. That's not community friendly at all and is a pain in the butt for server owners.

    absolutely agree with OP. i'm willing to pay a little extra to be able to boost using classic, but... another 5 dollars just puts me back at "i'm not paying that much just for a server boost, wtf".

    they're giving us an option between "pay for classic + boost" and "pay for nitro, which has boosts", but are making the simpler one more expensive?? for some reason??

    discord, yall, you cant just give us two options thatre functionally the same, and then make the slightly worse one the more pricey one. thats 100 dollars a year - potentially more - just for server boosts. i'm more than willing to give you money for the ability to boost, but this is just ridiculous. a server boost is not worth 5 f***ing dollars.

     

    edit: as other people have said earlier in the thread, server boosting is also just a chat perk. nitro classic is advertised as being just the chat perks - why isn't server boosting counted? it's almost entirely cosmetic, what's the deal here?

    I would also love to see a Nitro Boost to added at the $4.99 level. If that were added, I would for sure take the plunge and subscribe at that level. I think many others would, too! I've held off on Nitro because there hasn't been quite enough value for me, but it definitely would be worthwhile if there was a Nitro Boost in addition to the other perks, especially as a server owner. To make the $9.99 more worthwhile, perhaps add a Bonus Boost (or even two) to that tier?

    I agree with this but I personally believe Nitro subs should have three boosts while Classic subs should have one. Also the cooldown time between boosts is something that should possibly be addressed.

    That's precisely why I feel like users who have been long time nitro subscribers deserve more boosting points to be honest, best case scenario would be being able to boost multiple servers at a time or the same server like 2-3 times unless that's asking too much. 🙏

    pls let classic nitro users have a boost, even if it's a gimped version of nitro.

    I don't have a windows machine, can't play the games, don't want to pay double the sub when i can't use all the options. thinking of just cancelling my nitro classic sub over this >.<

    If Nitro classic is the version of Nitro for people interested in only chat perks, then this feature shouldn't be locked to the version of Nitro that is focused on gaming perks. Especially since this feature grants chat perks.

    Absolutely!
    Even if Classic Boosts are only worth a partial boost (like 1/2 or 1/3 a full Boost or something), all Nitro users should be able to boost their servers!

    I mean, the full version of Nitro can keep the games, that was always the big selling point when they first launched it. Now it's turning into something else and Classic is being left in the dust.

    Some people can't afford the full version and/or don't care about the games! I don't see why these two factors should prevent users from boosting their servers!

    Thats true paying 10$ a month is not real worth it if you are only their for the boosting.

    Not only would this help out servers who share populations with other servers.

    I agree that nitro classic should get a server boost token and nitro (paying more a month) should get more than one 

    at the moment it's like this -

    two kids playing (one younger than the other) . then the big school bully comes over and picks on the little kid and takes his server boost token away cause he's the easier of the two to pick on.

    Grandfathered get server boost due to early membership but you're apparently taking that away from them as soon as of 2020 and they will have to pay the full price of nitro to have the server boost perk again (  thats not respecting those who have supported discord early days


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

    don't dangle a new perk above away from a poor person when it would benefit everyone and more folk would want nitro in general than no nitro at all 

    if you want to promote a new perk . Celebrate it with everyone not just the big boys or the one's with the more money to spare
    especially when it's pride month. love for all

    Yeah, I totally agree. People might buy nitro classic for boosting, not the more expensive regular nitro. So I think you would not only keep your users happier, but also make more money. Plus, I feel like its a bit unfair, since you already dont get a whole lot for $50 a year.

    Maybe give classic one boost while normal nitro has 2.
    it would work with a different suggestion I have seen that wanted a second boost.

    Or give the server owner the opportunity to boost the server without Nitro, I don't need all these games, but I would pay $10-15 to get a Tier 3 server for me and my friends. We are trying to replace teamspeak, unfortunately the connection is not always satisfying.

    i whole heartedly agree with this. but i also believe that it could be a great way for more people to get nitro because if you have classic nitro as a option for boosting then more and more people will get nitro subsequently leading to more money and more profit

    I see no need to buy the games if you don't play them especially for mobile and mac users who cant use the games at all. and classic nitro is just chat perks right? isn't the boost to help the server get chat perks? I think it would be better for classic to have rather than the new one.
