Looks like the list for the top Gold/Z-Token givers are out(But no players are on the list yet since the release isn't live). Gold Z-Token
It says there
This list below contains the top 100 characters that have given away the most amount of Z-Tokens/Gold to other random characters.
Does that means characters can receive Gold/Z-Tokens donated by other characters? I thought it isn't the case for a donation drive. It might also be a typo, if the staff just copied it from the previous donation contests.
There are still no news on whether GGB Gold will be removed or whether there will be a reward for the Top 50/100. I THINK the GGB Gold will not be removed for this drive since if the staff does plan on doing so, they would have done it a few days earlier, like how they did for last year's donation contest. I think it will be better since it gives the players a higher chance of reaching the goal for this drive. However, it is still possible for the staff to remove the GGB Gold later before the release, so I wouldn't rule this out completely.
There also seems to be no mention of whether there will be a reward for the Top Gold donors so far(something that will usually be done in advance) So I guess there will be no rewards for the top donors(?) especially if the GGB Gold is not removed. However this might lower peoples' motivation since THESE rewards are what get people so worked up for these donation contests/drives. Not saying that not having a Top 50/100 reward will lower the donation amount by a lot, but it will probably be lesser than the amount with the rewards present. However since everyone will gain something out of reaching the goal of the donation drive, rather than just individual rewards like how it usually is, the total amount donated will be higher I think.
It is still completely possible for the staff to announce a reward for the Top donors later on(like what I said above for the case of GGB Gold) Or they might even announce a reward at the end of the donation drive for the top donors. It will truly be a surprise. However, I don't think that will be the best decision since there will likely be people mad about it not being announced earlier, in which they could have donated more in the drive to get it.
The amount of Gold/Z-Tokens needed hasn't been disclosed yet as well, so we wouldn't be sure if the amount needed to reach the goal will be very high or not. If it isn't super high, then removing GGB Gold might be fine since it isn't needed in this case. Could the goal be a trillion gold? Or less? Or more? I guess we will find that out soon.
Honestly, regardless of whether there will be a reward for the top donors or whether GGB Gold will be removed or not,I don't really mind as I will still donated a few billion gold either way. I can probably donate as much as 10 billion Gold across my characters WITHOUT GGB Gold or spending any real money. Well that is if I can (be motivated enough) farm everyday starting now for the rest of the month for 3 characters. It will probably be more if I decide to use some common GGB for Gold, if that option is available. As for Z-Tokens, I probably couldn't donate much(if any) as of now since I am kind of short of it right now, unless I decide to buy more or sell my houses for tokens.
