Add a way for Nitro Classic subscribers to boost a server

    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?

    Add 1 server boost to $5 Nitro and add 1 server boost to $10 Nitro (2 total)

    With the closure of Discord's game subscription service, I think this post needs a lot more attention. Classic nitro is worth $5 a month but a single server boost simply isn't worth that. Maybe make server boosts a one time payment as an alternative to the suggestion of this post?

    I too would like you guys to bring back the $4.99 a/mo $49.99 a/year nitro classic for everyone and let this boost our servers.

    and heres why! I believe Every penny counts, you guys are in the business of making a profit and keeping your business growing. I as a consumer and server owner (if were a large server or small it does not matter) become your sales pitcher by default. I want what the nitro perks offers a server. and you want the money company side.

    I mean no negativity here in any light. Its a really smart business model.
    But me as the consumer and sales pitcher. Its far far easier to to suggest someone to subscribe for $5 than it is $10.

    $10 is a game, a Pizza, lunch for two days and more for a kid
    and a good amount for saving /or bills for the adult.
    when you set that bar pretty low for entry you can incentivize more ppl to hop on the bus because its affordable.

    Atm Discord does not offer more than what you get for an amazon prime subscription, a hulu or netflix, or even sams or costco.

    So its entry fee should reflect what it is.
    I think will see a LOT more subscribers if you can bring this back.

    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 1000% I mostly got Nitro for boosting. They should do this!

    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.

    I still think that server boosting should be allowed for those that have nitro classic without any extra subscriptions needed cos at the end of the day, those that have paid for nitro classic are still a paying customer, and now that games is no longer included in nitro there isnt much point in paying for the full nitro anyway

    I agree with this, actually make it

    Nitro Classic : 1 server boost
    Nitro Premium : All Server Boost / Unlimited Server Boost

    100% for this.

    I hope this comes into effect. Even if they only added the 2-3 Boosts for $9.99 Nitro, that would be truly amazing.

    I can see why they'd leave out classic to give incentive to purchase the $9.99 version.

    Here's the thing,

    Discord is removing games from nitro games, so the difference between nitro games and nitro classic is boosting, you can'y ask them to make boosting available for nitro classic, then nitro games will be useless.

     

    However, i do believe that the price for a single boost should be $1-3, $5 is outrageous.

    This needs to be addressed and fixed. I do not use the other streaming perks and otherwise with Nitro. The main reason I got $9.99 Nitro was to be able to boost the small community I love and to have access to the games library once I had a net issue resolved. I only bought Nitro last month and that was my reasoning. Now, I find the games will be removed and feel that now I just have an expensive boost.

    I would love to see another way to have the capability to boost more than one server now that the other core reason for my getting Nitro has disappeared. At least give me the ability to show support for one or two other small communities I love. I don't stream on discord... I don't upload... the other perks aren't worth it.

    Please consider this. +1 on this to see these concerns addressed like I brought them up on the recent blog post about Games being removed.

    Thank you.

    An idea would be for

     

    Nitro Classic: 1 boost
    Nitro Games: 2-3 Boosts
    Each Extra Boost: $1-3

    I definitely agree with this suggestion, since I’m running on grandfather nitro and do not plan to switch to the 9.99 one just to boost a server. This suggestion could also help discord bring in more revenue from nitro subscriptions if users see that server boosting is offered to BOTH classic and nitro

    This system definitely needs some improvements. I too would like to see this implemented soon as described.

    YES PLEEEEASE. I REALLY want to boost my own server but I never cared about the games aspect of $10 Nitro so I never really felt justified enough to get it. And now that they’re removing those, they’re gonna need something huge to justify having separate tiers.

    I agree, Nitro classic users are actually being shorted a boost if they buy a standalone server boost instead of upgrading to $10 nitro for the same price. For this reason I believe classic users should still receive at least a single boost.

    So for 4.99$ a month you can buy a Server Boost. I am already a Nitro Classic User and already pay 4.99$ per month, so I think it would make perfect sense to include one boost for Nitro Classic Users. Unless I am missing something here?

    But people who have the 10$ don't have more perks than the 5$ subscription. This 10$ will became useless
