How to you plan to handle the people who backed the game during the kickstarter, but through the Crowfall website instead?(such as myself)

You have a number, it doesn't really matter how you backed. They will get to the number that you have eventually and there will still be plenty of time to test, no worries :)

I thought they were using the KS numbers though. And those aren't coordinated with the Crowfall numbers(at least i assume they aren't).  So it still brings up a problem. I assume ACE already have a solution, it just likely wasn't announced yet.

Might I interest you in a low-interest mortgage?

See thread. Check mails: only viagra and pyramid scheme spam.

Check KS number: #13108.

 

Well I guess the servers will be rock stable when I get an invite.

wait wait wait....

so the invites are really only going out according to backer number, as long as you crossed the A1 threshhold with your pledge.

so arkh, despite having ruby isn't testing, because sapphires have lower backer numbers.

 

And you're scolding me for making fun of high-end backers, while you treat yours like that?

You (ACE) should sort this out and reward the people that paid more and not the ones that paid sooner.

 

 

If this continues and you actually follow this procedure with name reservation and so on, then I will personally hand out the pitchforks, when the Rubies get their name stolen by some random ass bronze package!

 

Get your house in order!!!

Can someone link the client ?

 

 

They get the dl from a private dropbox link, so unless someone compiles the client and uploads it themselves (something that could be against the ToS) you wont be seeing the client on the forum anytime soon.

Yep, people that have paid more, dont actually get any benefit.

Ruby's still have to stay in the same queue as Sapphire's for A1 and Ambers are in the same queue as Gold for A2.

 

So you paid double the amount, and still have Sapphires get in before you in testing.

The way access is being handled has been known from the very beginning and should not be a surprise to anybody. I actually like that decision, it makes everyone somewhat equal, no matter how much money you throw at the game. Also, the higher pledge backers get other rewards than just testing access.

 

As a backer who spend more money on this game than most others I don't have any problem with this. I'm lucky I have a very low backer number and could afford a pledge as high to get Alpha 1 access as a reward.

 

Remember the earlier you back the better reward you get motto? Money doesn't seem to buy everything with ACE, but it seems loyalty and trust is. This is how it should be done imo.

good thing, that noone had problems pledging on the kickstarter site... that never happened...phew...

 

edit:

and do you even listen to yourself?

that blind loyalty and yes-saying is getting kinda old tbh

 

 

And noone is saying they should completely discard the system of going by backer number.

What they should do is further split up the pools out of which they draw testers.

 

This whole thing also highly devalues 2015 packages, especially when players bought those to get earlier access. And don't give me "You bought into the vision yaddayadda". Stop being so delusional.

 

A $2500 2015 Emerald Bundle has a lower priority than a $420 Early Bird KS Sapphire.

Seems legit, eh?

 

 

Sorry, but I'm expecting at least a basic understanding of business procedures and an understanding of how you should treat your customers.

 

All fine and dandy to reward the early backers, but only to a certain extent!

That is why ACE made the same packages available on the official site during the Kickstarter as well. If you backed there you still have the same rewards and access than the KS backers. Yes, you will be a bit further back in the line, but you get your turn eventually, just like everybody else in the same pledge level with Alpha 1 access.

 

You realize even though I got invited earlier I will loose access to the test later in this phase? The alpha 1 groups are in rotation until everyone has had access and has been able to test in pre-alpha.

It's ok because GW already told us before that they really want to reward the people that got on board earliest to support them.  We already knew this going in so we have no reason to be upset by it. 

 

People that paid more still get other perks that lower tiers don't have.

You guys realize I'm not asking them to abandon their effort to reward early backers, right?

 

I'm asking to treat their high-end backers appropriately. A thing I got reminded of via PM!!!

and read my edit to understand what you guys are defending!
