Kickstarter Backer Packages And Post-Kickstarter Backer Packages

Recommended Posts

When we started our Kickstarter, we wanted to offer our earliest backers the best deals possible.  And we did!

 

We didn’t do a perfect job though, our particular game is not identical to other MMO’s (as you may have noticed).  Some of our backer packages ended up with pretty extreme value multiples because we love our backers!  In particular the Amber and Sapphire packages are amazing values for backers, followed closely by Gold and Ruby packages.

 

After our Kickstarter campaign ends on 3/26/15 (thank you for our success by the way!), it will be time to change the contents of these backer packages.

 

We’re going to keep the package names the same and change the content of these bundles for NEW backers – again, we aren’t changing anything for those who signed up DURING Kickstarter!  We love our early backers, and we are delighted that you are getting such good deals.  But going forward, new people who sign up won’t be getting quite as good as deal as you did.

 

Most of the non-exclusive items dropped from packages will be able to be purchased individually on our store, just not not right away.

 

Kickstarter Backers got a number of exclusive items and “Backer Number Goal” rewards, most of which will not be offered in the post-Kickstarter bundles.  Except the horses, because everyone likes and needs horses!

              

OK, what do these old and new packages look like?

 

I’ll show three example packages with color coding to illustrate the changes:  XXX  = Content changed, XXX = Content lost, XXX = Backer Number Goals Rewards lost

As we get closer to launching the game we will probably change the packages again.  Earlier backers will always get better deals!

Awesome. Was actually going to ask about this during the ama. Thanks much!

 

 

 

Did you mean Gold/Amber/Sapphire? (Understood it was an example)

 

(Gold is right but sapphire has amber stuff and emerald is basically sapphire.)

Looks like you left Amber off that list.

 

EDIT:

 

Oops, they are examples, as pointed out by oberon below.  Thanks.

Dang. Lots of loss in there. Good idea posting this for the last 24 hours. Those on the fence better think twice!

 

Skimmed it the first time too and didn't notice the first time around that the badges, the mounts, the buildings they would all be different versions and the VIP is definitely nerfed.

 

Error? In the Emerald you get twice as many tax free parcels post-ks as you do early backer?

Is there any plan to let people upgrade their KS pledges to a higher tier? For example, right now I have Amber in KS.

 

Could I pay the difference to upgrade to Sapphire post-KS, and get access to Alpha 1 without losing all my Kickstarter rewards?

I wanted to keep the horses tucked away for 2 years and sell them for billions...

Looks good to me. Much appreciated that the KS early backers get recognized with a great deal, and hopefully this encourages more to pledge during the KS. It is also cool that you still offer the packages after the KS, but that they reflect a more modest deal.

 

I am sure some will complain that the KS backers got more, but we should...we wanted to support from the start.

 

This allows you to offer packages at a later date to those who may have missed the KS.

 

Thank You!

I wanted gold badge and avatar frame, but as a student i was planning to get it by adding 50$ every 2 months. Im disappoint :(

I wish those who kickstarted would still get kickstarter benefits if they upgrade , as im upgrading a kickstarter version. For example i already have the quarter horse, does this mean if i upgrade it will turn into 2015 quarter horse or will i have KS quarter , 2015 NM and WH.

Yep.  If people want a great deal on 72 months of VIP, the time is now to pledge Amber or higher.

Will there be an Amber backer level after Kickstart?

 

Sure, all levels will still be in after Kickstarter ends.  it just gets really crazy to list them all.  So I did a range of examples.
