These are your new Patreon benefits

Today we’re introducing new benefits for our Patreon that reflect how Blizzard Watch has changed over the years, and how we see things going in the future. Along with these benefits we have a set of new goals for our Patreon community as well — these are realistic, financial benchmarks that are are going to move our site and our business forward.

And if I could have a minute of honesty here, I don’t think we’ve done a very good job of fulfilling the goals that we had before. It’s been hit and miss (at best). But these? We’re going to hit these, and we’ve already set up a lot of the stuff to do just that: we already have a new ads-free experience, forums, Discord chat, and additional patron-only content.

Here are the full details on what you’ll get for supporting us on Patreon.
