Kickstarter Backer Packages And Post-Kickstarter Backer Packages

Recommended Posts

Dang I was hoping kickstarters would get both the ks horses and 2015 horse skins for helping promote the kickstarter so much ><

We won't get the Kickstarter data for two weeks, so we can't start merging pledges with accounts until then.  And we have to finalize the look of the forum badges and get them integrated into the forums.  Our goal is to deliver it before the end of April!

thanks for quick answer Gordon +1 to you sir Xd


Hey just Shout Bremmen and he will, Rise and Destroy the people you wish decimated :o

Could a system be in place so that before we purchase an upgrade it would show us what we would actually be gaining?

 

Also in regards to forum borders etc, will we be able to keep out KS ones or have to use the new 2015 ones should we upgrade.

What's the difference between the horse skins other than perhaps recolour? Just wondering.

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.

 

Please add soundtrack to the list of things that can be sold back, once that functionality is live.

I believe Kickstarters should have time to upgrade to a higher status.

Many didn't find out about the game till the very end and didn't have time to gather much money to get the ranking they would have liked.

Give Kickstarters who found out at the end some time to upgrade to a higher Kickstarter package.

Man I am very much disappointed. I totally understand the reasoning why and get that you can't, and in fact shouldn't, make exceptions or extensions for kickstarter type stuff. That being said I have been unemployed during the entirety of the kickstarter and was unable to put anything into it. I am extremely hyped for the game and plan on getting a package as soon as possible (Sapphire is the goal, but will settle for Gold based on my budget). I guess I am bummed at my own personal situation moreso than the devs themselves for missing out on lots of neat items and better deals during the KS duration. Oh well though, I will see you all in-game at some point anyway.

Any ETA on breakout single items?  I know quite a few people who are ready to throw somemore $$$ you way. 

 

At least a week, probably two.  We have the store ready but need to do an integrated payment solution (rather than the current LiveGamer paywall) that is not ready on their end.  I'd talk about the joys of web integration with vendors, but it would be a very short conversation.  :(

Good suggestion and on-target with our plans for upgrades.

 

The goal of the badge system is to let you choose from any you have purchased, or below those, down to no badge.

I agree with the idea of having a "shop" system for your pledges so we can see exactly (physical images) of what we may wish to upgrade to in our pledge and what we have already obtained.

 

might also be benifictial to have that running so future "resellng for credit" of unwanted or un-needed pledge gifts can be made

 

kinda like an online pledge shop :)

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I had to give up my Amber Early Bird...which hurt.  A lot.  A.  LOT.

 

There were two things in that early bird package that made it so extremely painful...one I'm positive will not be in the new 2015 package, but was wondering, is there any hope at all that if we had to go lower, we would still some day be able to buy the physical copy of game, or is that also gone forever?  (If it is, I'll somehow manage to find the will to live...it's okay...no...really...)

I love that I got the sapphire in Kickstarter, but still a great package. Cant wait to see what it will cost to upgrade the castle to medium size though.

I'm sure you can upgrade your castle the old fashioned way after some campaigns.

 

What I would love is to have all the resources needed to build those structures, with an "easy button" or the option to build as I see fit.


I think the K-Mart of MMO's already exists!  And it ain't us!   :)

Pattern and color, as it will be a complete re-texture of each.

We will sell the collectors edition separately, of course!   Too many people were telling us they didn't want it to automatically include it, and we need to have realistic shipping worldwide destinations.

Since we are making money questions, I have one of my own.

 

Although price increases will probably not increase at a steady rate, how often should we expect the deals to lower in value?  Every month?  Every Three months?  After big development milestones?


How Can Mounts Add to the Crowfall Experience?  Caravans, Hunting Boars, and more.

 

How Complex can Mining be in Crowfall?  Mining difficulty, fatigue, infrastructure.
