Kickstarter Backer Packages And Post-Kickstarter Backer Packages

Recommended Posts

Looks good and fair to me. the original valu is still made and the new valu when you take everything into consideration is still verry good but not quite as mad as the kickstater levels. You should still get more people pledging and keep the kickstaters happy that thay got (by far) the best deals will proibly ever see out of this game.

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.

 

 

Thank you, first time I've actually got an answer from the Bossman himself :) Should make the process of upgrading once implemented easier then too. Less of that "oh I thought I was getting x y z"

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...)

Cheyenne, I have two copies of physical game coming...Because you are in KoS, I will gladly mail you a copy.  I am just glad you are still playing and part of our family.

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?

 

The package deals? I don't expect them to come down at all. Except have contents changed / different skins periodically. 

 

The backer rewards I thought would be like this

KS Backer would also get Backer 2015 + Backer 2016 Benefits

Backer 2015 would also get Backer 2016 benefits.

 

Of course I dont know what the next packages are but I did think in my head for some reason that it would work that way hah

So those changes doesn't effect who backed during "kickstarter" via "kickstarter" ?

No, the current ones up are for the new 2015 backers. 

 

Those who backed during the KS phase will keep those rewards originally listed. Check your backed projects on Kickstarter for what you'd be expecting to get.

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.

 

Seeing this makes me feel a little better,it was a big reason i wanted amber on kickstarter to begin with.For certain reasons i couldn't do kickstarter and i have no one to blame but myself for not seeing this thread when it hit the forums.truth be told disappointment is an understatement after seeing the changes to the bundles.But good job on the respect given to the kickstarter backers and being open to making further changes in the future. For me the bundles just aren't worth it at this point,if i do have a change of heart seems making specific purchases separately is the way to go for me.

 

may crowfall have lots of success and all the backers see the vision become reality!

Separate pre-Alpha and it's GG!  :D

Not gona happen.

They got enough people to early test.

About 60 or so.

 

Way enough, given condesed feedback and personal interaction with dev's.

 

 

+ It's really just pre-Alpha. So it won't be "that playable" and rather "buggy".

Remind yourself, that this will be a real Alpha ... not a comercial testrun like Starcraft or Diablo ... blizzard ahoi..

Every year, till they realese most likely.

 

So 2015, 2016, Maybe 2017 if it's in a kind of open Beta were founding packs can still be bought.

 

If you want a special item from these packs. You will need to buy them again.

Maybe, they will aloww old backers to simply buy the extra horses and stuff sperately.

That would be nice.

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.  :(

Hang in there ^^.

 

So gonna buy some extra parcels and stuff like 2015 horses too.

It will be worth it.

 

But sadly, Paypal usage isn't as much as i expected it to be... we are still lumbering aroudn 20%ish to stretch goal. Just from that .... come on guys pay up xD.

 

*looking specialy at the EU market*

Oh well, too bad. ~One day too late I guess. : )

 

I don't have a CC and don't want to pay for one just to use Kickstarter, since most offer the same deals for a few weeks after the kickstarter funded on their page via PayPal anyway. Kind of expected something similar with Crowfall and to be honest, I had no idea PayPal has been available now for a while (?). I planned to get Amber, but that's probably not happening anymore.

 

Well, lets see what the store has to offer, maybe I'll cherrypick a few things here and there then...

My logic is stay positive and see what adjustments are made over time.they can't keep us all happy after all. pick up the things that mattered to me most one at a time when the shop goes live at my convenience worst case.

Just found the current iteration of the store on your website.  I found a typo.

 

Even though the next stretch goal is at 1.85 million (Glad to see it posted already), the counter at the top of the page says: "99% of $1,800,000 Stretch Goal".

 

Last I heard 1.8 million != 1.85 million.  Just pointing it out so you guys can correct it.

No, but will be available as a separately purchasable service.

 

 

Will those who received this as a KS perk be able to reserve their Guild name before this service is purchasable by the general public?

Following the character name reservation logic.  Players that pledged / purchased for guild name reservation will reserve in the same order as they obtained them.  In other words, players that pledged first get to reserve the guild name first.  This is not confirmed, but is most likely the approach ACE till take.

This was their hope, but they were unsure if Kickstarter could provide the order in which someone pledged, and/or how it would be effected if someone pledged lower, but then upgraded.

Well I do have access to my Crowfall backer number, my guess is that Kickstarter will send similar information to Artcraft.  Even if they don't have the date, they can easily let people reserve in order of backer number.  This will probably be the case for character names at least.

For certain reasons i couldn't do kickstarter and i have no one to blame but myself for not seeing this thread when it hit the forums.truth be told disappointment is an understatement after seeing the changes to the bundles.But good job on the respect given to the kickstarter backers and being open to making further changes in the future. For me the bundles just aren't worth it at this point,if i do have a change of heart seems making specific purchases separately is the way to go for me.

 

Just my thoughts - with one difference - I could blame it on the bad paypal payment implementation. Than when I try multiple times to invest something over 300€ (275$ + VAT) for the Amber bundle per paypal (while the Kickstarter founding was still running) and it doesnt work, then that means for me, they dont want my money and I stop trying. And with the changes to the packages I dont think its worth the more then 300€ anymore. (Especially since I was only interested in this package for the tax free parcels. Even the tier lower isnt really appealing anymore without the 20% inventory increase.)

 

But for some unknown reason I am still thinking about buying at least the 60$ package (for the mount)... so are the new paypal pledges upgradeable, should I change my mind about the worth of the content a package has for me? Since it was stated, that the old KS paypal pledges werent upgradeable.

Several months for these prices.
