A 5 user server requires the same amount of boosts as a 5000 user one

    It is fair to say that servers with almost unlimited financial support spend as much on boosts as small servers.But I think the discord does not care Capitalism😒

    Why would you want to boost your server that much if there's just 5 of you. Just buy Nitro and you'll have more or less the same perks. You're not paying based on the bandwidth you use, you're paying for the features it unlocks for you such as vanity URLs.

    "Cos I'd drop $5-$10 monthly to get higher upload limits and better streaming (getting animated emojis would be cool as well)."
    cough Nitro COUGH

    I feel the pain here with this one. Im heavily involved in the Madden CFM Community. The CFM Community servers usually cap at 32 people as there are only 32 teams in a given CFM. The CFM Servers will never be able to justify the high end server tiers. Its not practical. 


    If there was a practical grounds to achieve the higher tiers for the smaller communities like CFM communities I am 100% those communities would pay up.  


    Maybe a way to balance things, Discord could implement a max number of members if you unlock the higher tiers at a lower pay rate. Basically slams the door shut on more growth.

    That wouldn't balance things at all. Larger communities will feel done by if smaller communities are able to unlock the same perks for a cheaper price. As I iterated before, the cost is for the features you unlock, it has nothing to do with the members in your community. 

    Small communities, like the one you described, would not benefit greatly from the benefits from a Level 3 boost. Discord has always vowed to be free to use and not have anything where you would need to pay to use a core feature. The benefits unlocked from server boosts are purely cosmetical, they don't have any impact on the community itself.

    The only perks which could have a justified impact is a vanity URL, which can be used to help a community grow, but at that point you're looking at the cost of marketing, which again is a fact of life in the real world.
