As far as I know, when you donate (money or goods) you don't expect
something back. Very few communities use donations to support the servers.
Most of them simply sell something (access to reserved slot, immunity during
humiliation round etc.) for real money and call this a donation. Also, as
far as I know, No Heroes servers can kick a player to free a slot for a
so in their case is "pay to play" instead "pay to win".

Yeah - let's not paint communities whose members donate to support their
servers as something negative. Community supported servers are as old as pc
gaming itself. Not all communities that are member-supported are "pay to
win". We sure as hell aren't.
