Default Do you think creating samp server is profitable?

I know some of you make server as hobbies and fun but does it possible to make server really profitable in money?

I mean almost samp players are young and got no money, unlike minecraft players they are young but they got money and would buy premium with no shit

Well, to be honest, making a SA:MP server just for money is not good at all, that's first.

However, if you start a server for fun, and get tons of players, I'm sure some of them will buy ranks.

No. Free2play is bullshit, and servers created with money in mind are bullshit.

There is difference between creating and creating. Any idiot can download a run-of-the-mill gamemode and run a server with it. Perhaps they change a few things here and there but that is not "creating" in my book. Most of the time the main motivation of these people seems to be either power or money. These types of servers rarely succeed because the "creator" doesn't know how to create anything new by himself or even how to fix some very apparent bugs in the mode they're using.

Popular servers have distanced themselves because their developers know what they are doing. If you're very lucky you may make enough from donations to eventually break even and if you're extremely lucky you may even get something extra. But don't expect to make a full time living out of it.

Now, no, unless you have a very very very HUGE player-base, but still, not profitable.

Money is a by product of doing what you love. Don't do something because it makes you money, do something that you love doing. It is possible to profit a bit off a sa-mp server, a small server with around 50 players might earn an extra $20 per month. If you create a server to make money, I 100% guarentee you it will fail in the first few weeks.

The best you can hope is for that server to sustain itself.
