Kickstarter Backer Packages And Post-Kickstarter Backer Packages

Recommended Posts

What's the word on existing Kickstarter backers upgrade? How will that work? Will we be able to upgrade individual parts? Full tiers?

 

I know it will be much more expensive post KS, I'm just curious what will be able to be upgraded and whether we can upgrade individual parts of our tier.

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?

 

Not an error.  We wanted to ensure every 2015 package hits a 250-320% value to dollar ratio for backers, and the really high level backers need to more tax-free parcels, particularly with combining parcels to make special ones.  I hope that's clear!

Interesting. O-o

 

So if a panel is 3x3 it requires 9 parcels to place? Or do we place panels then choose what to claim at the cost of parcels?

 

I'm interested to know more...

I'm trying to figure out if because I am a KS backer that I will always have access to the KS rewards even if I don't upgrade till after tomorrow.

 

Its an interesting question... If a ks backer waits until after KS and then upgrades his pledge, will he get the KS items transferred over?

 

It seems to me atleast in the post here, that the KS is by itself, and you wont be able to upgrade afterwards, but I could be wrong.

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?

 

Great points we should have covered.

 

1) We will let people upgrade to the NEW 2015 packages without losing anything from the current one they hold, but not right away.  The Kickstarter packages are gone forever tomorrow morning, so you can't upgrade to them post-Kickstarter.

 

2) We will sell elements of the package, like Alpha 1, separately at some point, and probably with limited quantities (as we only want and need a certain number of people in each test).  Again, we aren't ready to start selling items separately quite yet, but that capability is coming.

 

3) I'll add one you didn't ask.  A lot of people don't want/can't use some aspect of the package they have, and for SOME (not all) of those items, we will run buy-backs for store credit on in the future.  The items most often mentioned are the Collectors Edition, and all the various invitations to visit ArtCraft where people can't use them due to geographic/time challenges.  Don't expect this capability for a few months though (and hopefully we'll have it sooner).  Typically we'll bring out some new things for backers to purchase with store credit in conjunction with any buy-back offer.

yea, Emerald KS has +40 in two spots so it is equivalent.   

If I am a Ruby backer with +10 bonus Parcels, and I upgrade Post-KS Emerald, does that mean I now have 90 total Tax Free Parcels?

The KS is closing in 17 hours and once it does there's no way to add funds or upgrade your package or even offer to back and start a brand new pledge as far as KS goes.

 

You've got 17 hours to pay what you can afford and feel comfortable with and then this particular set of prizes is gone.

 

You can definitely back CF on their site though and it's likely that down the road they'll have spiffy stuff there that was not on KS.

Alpha 1 from sapphire still less money than a basic tier with the alpha 1 add on later?

I may want to upgrade to sapphire later, I understand I won't lose my amber rewards from KS, but will I still get all the KS sapphire stuff if I upgrade later?

 

No you won't get a Kickstarter Sapphire reward if you upgrade after tomorrow.  You'll only get what's offered in the new 2015 Sapphire, in the areas where it exceeds your Kickstarter Amber.

 

For exampe, the Kickstarter Sapphire adds a Villa as a reward over Amber, but the New 2015 Sapphire doesn't have that Villa.  If you upgrade after Kickstarter ends, you won't get the Villa, because it doesn't exist in the new 2015 Sapphire package.

Upgrade means you get the (positive) difference, not an absolute add.  You are paying the price differential, not the full price after all for an upgrade.

Not immediately, but in the future, yes.

So, I have an Amber now... post KS I could upgrade to the NEW Sapphire, keeping all of my Amber bonuses and getting the NEW 2015 Sapphire benefits on top of that?

 

EDIT: Looks like this got answered before I posted.

Seems like it.

The KS rewards are gone tomorrow, but you will add the website backer awards to your KS awards basicly.
