As the event is a marathon and not a sprint, those players "holding back" will be waiting a long time if everyone is "holding back". On the other hand, it only matters what you do or do not do. If you hold the tokens, you hold them. If you donate them to the server unlock, then you do that.

All it takes is 1 person to give - but it's not going to happen "fast" or even "soon".
Whoever says “I” creates the “you.” Such is the trap of every conscience. The “I” signifies both solitude and rejection of solitude. Words name things and then replace them. Whoever says tomorrow, denies it. Tomorrow exists only for him who does not seek it. And yesterday? Yesterday is Kolvillàg: a name to forget, a word already forgotten.
