Most of you probably already know of the problems and unprofessional behavior we encountered this year with our advertising agency when they failed to deliver a campaign worthy of E3. This left us in a difficult financial situation which we're currently trying to address by finding ways to continue delivering the content people demand in 2016 and beyond. Among them is the launching of a Patreon campaign – a participatory system which works almost like a monthly subscription service without the long term commitment of something like Kickstarter. For those that wish to help out, financial contributions are now possible, with some of the upper tiers even offering a bit of a bonus. We tried to find a set of bonus ideas that will help show our gratitude without penalizing those who are unable or choose not to participate in the Patreon. For anyone interested, it's easy - just to go this address and make a donation. Inside you'll find a bit more details on the Patreon system and the reasons we went for it in the first place. Update: Our Patreon livestream is up (skip the first minute and 20 seconds).
What is Patreon?
Patreon is a crowdfunding platform that allows a community to help support a project on a monthly, or non-monthly, basis. It's possible to pay just one time, several times, or a fixed amount over a specified time much like a subscription service. The advantages are clear – the ability to launch a project before reaching a certain goal in addition to commitment only extending as far as the monthly income permits. Given the fact that we are all volunteers, we cannot in any way ensure the indefinite survival of the site and we don't want your money to be spent on long term promises that we might not be able to keep. That said, our goal is obviously to maintain the activity of Gamersyde as long as possible to continue defending the importance of video quality in our medium on the Internet.

People sayin' Paladins isn't "inspired" by OW design are funny. I can't even take the hi-rez guy seriously. Sure it was in development first. And it's changed (to be more like OW) a lot since then (20 minutes ago)
I meant EVENT...not Even. :-) (38 minutes ago)
Even 0,....one of the best experience with a game I had. Yes...it´s terribly short, but genius! I highly recommend. (38 minutes ago)
Well it's got like.. stuff to do in it unlike something like NMS I guess. I think people like the expansion content too. And bungie gameplay on consoles. (1 Hour ago)
@droezelke: For some people it was the first foray into an MMO, even if it was MMO-Lite. I can understand why some people love it. (4 Hours ago)
