2016 has been a roller coaster of a year, but donations have been at an all time-high! The clan has never seen as many donations in a year as 2016. It is because of this that we were able to upgrade our servers to be hosted on a dedicated server which has improved the lag and up-time of the servers dramatically. There has also been movments into new games as a result of upgrading to a dedicated server, there is now a Counter Strike - Global Offensive server, and the Garry's Mod servers have been delayed but are still on their way! A new forum is also in development; although progress is slow, it will be of excellent quality. Behind the scenes, there have also been improvements to the security of files and data in the clan.
All of this is directly from the clan having more funds available due to the volume of donations we've had this year from the amazing people who gave to us. The following is a list of those people who donated to us since September 2015 which is the last time the donations goal was reset to 0, with the total they gave and when they donated (DD/MM/YYYY).

As you can see, we must be terrible at remembering to update the donations bar as it hit to €210/€200 before it was just reset today. The total of all these donations is €484.08 (using exchange rates at the time of posting this topic).
Now this is a massive achievement and a heck of a milestone for the clan. It would not have been achieved and the improvements to the clan would not have been possible if it weren't for all the donations we get, so I would like to give a massive thank you to everyone who has donated to the clan and helped us - not only keeping us alive, but also for paving the way forward!
Let's make 2017 a fantastic year for everyone here!
