Hi!
I'm Yax: geek, gamer, and developer. I'm creating Wipefest so that players everywhere can view concise fight summaries showing exactly what is going on in raids. Whether you want to find out why your guild is wiping, work out when the best time to use your cooldowns are, or research the best strategy for defeating a boss, Wipefest can help!

Why Patreon?
Since I announced Wipefest back in mid-2017, the response has been overwhelming. It makes me really happy to see so many people using the tool and finding it helpful. I've spent hundreds of hours developing Wipefest, and I'd love to spend hundreds more, but sometimes it can be hard to justify spending so much time on the project, while also balancing full-time work and home-life.

Even without taking hours worked into account, Wipefest has been running at a loss from the beginning, with now roughly $165 a month of server costs. These costs are only going to increase as new features get added (in particular, adding the ability to analyze entire reports, and track insights at both guild-level and player-level will require costly infrastructure upgrades).

I've kept Wipefest both ad-free and tracking-free, and I'd love to continue to be able to do this. If you find the tool helpful and want to support future development, then feel free to add your patronage to contribute to server costs, or even just a slice of pizza to keep me going 😉🍕

Goals
$145 of $165 per month
Break-even with hosting costs

I've done my best to keep server costs to a minimum while still being able to provide a fast and reliable service. The current costs are spread across AWS, MongoDB Atlas, & Cloudflare, and total to $165 per month. Once we reach this mark, we can start looking at stretch goals!
