We are very excited to present to you an outstanding lineup of donation incentives. Up for grabs are three new Support Token songs, and a limited quantity of solid brass “All Skill” FFR Tokens!

  1. FIRST

  2. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

  3. THROWING MONEY

  4. YAY! Every gamer’s FAVOURITE THING! Microtransactions!

  5. dammit i’m broke D:
    SOON™

  6. except no-one’s profiting off of this, it’s all literally for the prizes for the tournament asshole

  7. Cool! You brought up profit, which is exactly my thing that I had a problem with! Well I guess I have no right to be mad! Sick!

  8. - event staff tries to do something to make tourneys even better
    - people get mad

    lol cmon dude

  9. woah WoaH WOAH, BRIDGEPORT RUN?
    aosidfiioajoijwerogjwoeg

  10. Mike Weedmark are you serious right now

  11. ps HYPE

  12. Can you get more than 1 physical token if you donated more but put “physical token only”?

  13. i kinda agree with mike on this one but only because there’s no indication on this front page post, or in the thread, about these tokens becoming available without money

  14. My favourite thing is how complaining about money-based unlockables is still shocking to some fifferers.

    This is actually a new encounter for me. I’ve never seen a fanbase so eager to extort itself. Microtransactions even make Forza players throw up in their mouths at this point. Forza players! People who spent money on Forza!

    But fine, if this is what people want, go4it!

  15. @Herogashix – Yes!
    @Mike @Choofers – I have updated the FAQ with this information. All six support tokens will be given a particularly challenging set of unlock requirements in the Skill Token Unlock thread, and may be distributed in future spontaneous contests.

  16. Donated 20 bucks. Had a good day so use it wisely and good luck to all.

  17. Max you are a god <3

  18. Mike:

    “I’ve never seen a fanbase so eager to extort itself”

    Don’t make this sound bigger than it is. You’re literally only referring to YoshL and me at this point.

    This idea doesn’t bother me whatsoever because I care about a thousand times more about this community than I do about how attainable all of the content in this game is. We’re talking about a flash game on a website with a few hundred active players. I think that’s different from a corporation making huge profits by consistently offering content available only via payment of real currency.

    From purely a gaming standpoint, I get where you’re coming from. But I don’t see why FFR should be treated the same way as other video games. To me, it’s a very different thing.

  19. was mike even a part of the community when tass was a thing
    because -that- was microtransactions

    i mean, shit, you used to only have veteran title if you paid a monthly sub (or maybe it was a one time sub, pretty sure it was monthly though)

    it’s not like ffr is going pay2win lmao, you donate a bit of money and get access to tokens (and a limited edition physical item w0w what a crazy concept it is to buy something you can hold in your hand)

    or you can wait until the end of the month and get the tokens by playing the game

  20. I am aware that there was an update made that made this entirely less stupid. I did read Prawn’s post.

  21. also i like how the more you read mike’s comments, the more blown out of proportion they seem

  22. yeeeeee boi another tournament yeyeyeye unfortunately i can’t use paypal or whatever it is but it’s ANOTHER TOURNEYYYY!! unfortunately i’ll suck because of how bad i’ve gotten. oh well

  23. I personally don’t agree with in-game tokens becoming available through the payment of money. This is a non-profit website, and I would imagine plenty of people who spent a considerable amount of time and concentration to unlock those in-game tokens feel outraged. Tokens which are so difficult to unlock from challenges or from doing well in FFR events are now available from a small donation. I’m fine with the donations themselves and the physical tokens, though.

  24. dayummmmmmmmmmm

  25. You do realize that we’re not just paying for the tokens. We’re also donating for the tournament for prizes in the future for the other players to win. Maybe in the future, the tokens will be unlockable in another way. I highly doubt you have to pay money for them forever. This is just to get the tournament donations going and it’s a great idea.

  26. What you’ll like even more choof, is that I’m the least pissy person involved in this ruckus, and post in a disproportionally drastic way by default. It’s actually kind of disappointing that it took you multiple reads to find them that way :333334 I’m sitting here imagining my posts in a Will Ferrell voice, and everyone else imagines Palpatine :3333344

  27. It’s not about paying for tokens. It’s donating to help the people who do this for free. The tokens and title are just filler.

    Regardless, I spend a lot of time on this website, the least I can do is say thanks with a small donation such as this.

    Good luck staff, make this a great tourny.

  28. the problem is that when you say “least pissy”, you’re also the most sarcasting and negative person at the same time lmfao stop trying to paint yourself in a good light

  29. this is sick

  30. I have zero problem throwing money at a website that I’ve been devoting countless hours to every day for nearly a decade. TAKE MY MONEY *throw*

  31. FIRST!

  32. PS TL;DR

  33. For the person who actually managed to state their concerns without being rude:

    “I personally don’t agree with in-game tokens becoming available through the payment of money. This is a non-profit website, and I would imagine plenty of people who spent a considerable amount of time and concentration to unlock those in-game tokens feel outraged. Tokens which are so difficult to unlock from challenges or from doing well in FFR events are now available from a small donation. I’m fine with the donations themselves and the physical tokens, though.”

    First off, I do appreciate the general concern that you have about this. To answer a few things: the staff here on FFR does understand that the website is non-profit, which is why ALL proceeds raised by this fundraising event will go directly back into the site, more specifically, the 10th Official FFR tournament. As another note — the previous Support Tokens (Tell v3, Dendrite v2, Coactive [OmSm]) were actually behind a paywall for quite a long time: in order to get them, you had to pay quite a bit of money per token (you did also receive an album with the token that you unlocked). The alternate requirements were put into place after FFR Subscriptions were no longer an active perk. Support Token unlock requirements had to be created because the tokens were no longer unlockable through payment. Similarly, the FFR Subscribers group became FFR veterans for the same reason.

    The newer tokens will be behind a paywall, but users can expect difficult challenges to unlock them after a certain period, similarly to the three previous support tokens as well.

  34. *rudes all over the place*

    Yoshull we’re still buds don’t worry.

  35. my opinion is that

  36. I’m throwing my money at the screen. Why is nothing happening.

  37. $20 sent and I know that this is going to a great cause. Loved this game for so long. Good luck to everyone!!

  38. UbiBorn, Your eCheck may take several business days to process. I apologize for the inconvenience.

  39. I don’t get what the problem is. You pay for funding of a tournament, something that will bring more playerbase, and you get a cookie for helping out. You win that tournament, you get paid. There’s really no downside to this. :I

  40. That is no biggie. I understand small things like that. I am a patient man. Thanks for the reply! :D

  41. I donated $25 cus Ive been with FFR since almost the beginning

  42. Oh, I hadn’t known that event tokens were originally meant to be support tokens for donating to FFR. Thank you for clarifying, and I feel a little better now. :)

  43. 50$ use it wisely or burn in hell

  44. You guys are awesome, if I had money I’d donate. This is a great idea.

  45. $20 sent hope you enjoy my money!

  46. dendrite and coactive token pics mixed up there

  47. :OOOOO looks pretty nice omg >w<

  48. I had a look at my bank account. In the negative, disappointed. Guess I can’t afford to help. I tried guys :(

  49. $20 sent. It’s the least I could do for this incredible website. Keep it going~

  50. Gifted $20 aswell, keep it alive and ever more !

  51. So how do we know when we will be getting the tokens? There was nothing stated that we had to put our address somewhere. Nor have we been able to select our songs. Is all this to come at a later date?

  52. Your paypal has your shipping address in it.
    You were supposed to add the songs you wished to receive in the paypal purchase info.

    Issues will be dealt with, so don’t worry too much.

  53. UbiBorn, I will contact you via private message for your support token choice & updated shipping information as soon as your eCheck clears.

  54. Zageron, “Issues will be dealt with, so don’t worry too much” The wording of that scares me lol. JK Thanks

  55. this is tight

  56. who knows when the tournament starts?

  57. Damn it… I’m late to the party. I wanted that All skill token :(
