If they had a permanently private option, I'd pay 20k +

Sintoque mentioned that the private servers are virtual servers:

Sintoque wrote:@plak, this game private server is a virtual server in HH game on (most probably virtual) server clusters in YGN. We dont actually renting a physical server.
and since it cost that much tix, that's why we are trying to share to get one, since we don't know what kind of our Return of Investment (ROI) would be like. and we also wouldn't be able to play daily for a month.


I've had a look at some of the virtual server costs online via this website:

Virtual Server Cost Estimate Calculator

And the cheapest to host a basic one is $3302 per year:
Image

Assuming that you would pay for 20,000 tickets via the 6000 tickets for $200 package and 2800 tickets for $100 package, you would need to pay $700 in total for 20,000 tickets. (three 6000 ticket packages and one 2800 ticket package).

I'm not sure how much Rob has to pay per year for the virtual server that Sintoque mentioned but if the estimate from that website is correct, it would cost $275 a month to host a virtual server so 20,000 tickets or $700 equivalent would only go for 2.5 months.

Again, these are all estimates based on the statement from Sintoque that the game private servers are actually in fact virtual servers and that the estimates from the website that I linked had a correct estimate.

With no real information of how much a virtual server costs for Helmet Heroes, it would be impossible to figure out how much $700 worth of tickets should last, but even if virtual servers cost $1000 a year, the private server rental would only be for a year and not a permanent payvault purchase.

List has been updated with 14 members.

Private Server currently costs 3450 tickets.

That cost divided by 14 players would equate to 247 tickets per player. I personally have sold tickets at $35K a piece which is cheaper than the prices now which are $37K-$45K in price

The in-game cash value of 247 tickets if at $35K each would be $8.645M.

I do realise that some players have and are willing to contribute more than this amount. Examples of this would be Sintoque who has paid me 575 tickets for his stake in this venture and CCafe who is willing to pay 1300 tickets.

However, it would be unfair to those players if they had to pay for the other player's share as well. So this is my message to the 14 that are interested. A donation of 247 tickets each or $8.645M is required from each and everyone of you for this Private Server to happen with you involved.

If everyone manages to gain this amount then the Private Server will be ready to go. (In that situation, 328 tickets will be repaid to Sintoque as he would have donated excess tickets.)

If, however, no one manages to obtain this amount, then the tickets that I have received will all be paid in full to their respective owners and the Private Server will probably happen but with the few people that I have PMed as those players are willing to donate more than at least 100 tickets.

With the massive dumping of tickets into private servers, you will have to factor in the exponential increase in the value of the ticket market in terms of supply and demand.

Soon tickets will be 100k + a ticket easily, and I guarantee this.

There was a boom in ticket purchasers due to AG, and those people no longer purchase tickets.

This is, yet again, a charitable work Rob has done for us - I FEEL it in his soul; you, clarifying the costs of the servers, shed's a lot of light on how Rob is not trying to sell us short and you can see he's trying to give us a good deal.

I'm assuming he got a very good price on bulk, but it's just cutting it marginally, I'm assuming he's doing this to make the HH community happy, which it seems he always does.

Glad to see a game dev which has a heart.

Makes me kind of jelly I sold over 70,000 tickets for 6-10k a ticket. >_>

so why arent all the servers virtual servers? or just one will be not virtual?

EDIT (corrected level and typos: I thought my typos might make it too hard to read)
I like this idea, I really liked it when cokenarc bull-horned the pass for Dunamis server, he was such a great guy, much respect.

If im gonna do this i will also be getting double drop to get the most out of it, that means getting either 450 tickets or 1300 tickets and having either 70 left over or 920 left over

Player Name: Krobeus
Tickets willing to contribute: up to 920
Tickets contributed: none yet, i will buy them if this is confirmed as happening
Level: 106
Guild: no guild yet (Im gonna apply to hells army at level 200, unless it's gone up by then)
Preferred time online in UTC: not sure what this means, i live in England uk and i play most evenings, daytimes if I am not working
Preferred grinding area: no preferred area, i grind what I can, at the moment thats goo cubes, stalkers sasqatch, can do bricks and drillbots but not easily, i don't mind moving rooms if someone else turns up...? there are only 30 of us so i wont have to move more than a couple times to find a nice space to myself
