How do I tell how far down I am?
If I up my pledge will I still be counted as one of the original 9000 backers?
Nudging some big websites will hopefully do the trick.
You guys should create some ready made forum Sigs. I'm very active on the Star Citizen and Elite forums, and I bet something with a link here would help!
Having checked another kickstarter recently which reached about 1mil despite having half the number of backers I came to the conclusion that we get too much for the small packages and too little for the really big ones. 1/3 of people has only pledged 20$ which does little to raise the overall pledge amount - yet gets them the full game.
Now it would be sad if overpricing everything is really the way to go, but it seems to be..
@Ben You can check your own backing date either by checking your email, or by checking the My Backer History on Kickstarter. That will show your original backing date; even if you change your pledge, it'll remain the original date.
@ben: We know when you first pledged, so upgrading is not a problem. Keep in mind not all factions have been announced. Who knows, perhaps there is a faction out there that will appeal to you?
@Lars/Per - magnetic locks/mini tractor beams - crates and barrels could be secured by mag locks - or mini gravity wells/internal tractor beams...:)
Is there a way for us to remember when (at what #..) we backed? if we increase our pledge, will the original date be the backing date or the final date? - Hoping you all pick up the pace on backing - looking forward to the game. (Stretch goal of US colony ship?.... - western cowboy/militia motiff? mixed with Australians - societal adventurers,/criminals/survivalist/religious outcasts developed fringe colonies with diverse populations and religious beliefs, ragtag militia valuing independence and reckless tactics - highly motivated and talented pool,...
@Lars: Its a good point, and we will see what we can do. Keep in mind that our goal was to fill the empty space so we could give you guys a quick preview image as soon as possible.
One thing about these screenshots that irks me: Unsecured storage crates and barrels everywhere. They should be safely stowed away in the quartermaster's stores.
In between ramming other ships, manouvering between asteroids and pulling stunts with the spaceship, some poor marine is bound to get hit by one and get injured.
@Ryan: We write "the first xxx backers" and not "the first xxx backers who pledge minimum XYZ". So yes, all backers who pledge $10 or higher qualify for these Orders and Medals etc.
Will these apply to every copy of the game we receive at our particular pledge level? Also, just to clarify, are these physical rewards?
Damn, missed out on the Order of Nicholas, but at least I still get the Order of The Mandate. I'm guessing you're probably stripped of the title itself when you're imprisoned though, and reclaim your title as you progress if you're supporting the Mandate?
For people's reference, if you backed within the first 15 days you'll be in that 3000. About a third of the people who backed on the 16th day will qualify, according to Kicktraq at least.
Can't wait for those cross promotions. This should have been funded ages ago, hopefully they'll give the project the publicity and push it needs.
I love the attention to detail and how well thought out the little things are, like the genecode - awesome.
@Markus - it's probably the lack of physical rewards. (because of that i haven't pledged higher) but this was a deliberate decision (a good one in regards to costs of rewards fulfillment) - but i guess it's because of that (for example tex murphy had almost 600k with 7.000 backers).
honestly I cant understand how you guys arent way beyond the funding goal by now. This game is shaping to be all kinds of awesome.
I smell a conspiracy!
Wish someone would just donate $240,000 and immediately complete the goal =P
Ну вы ребята даете. :)
Ahem... I mean you guys are great. :D I don't remember whether I am applicable for knighthood :) or not but idea is beautiful.
@Fernando: We have several trailers coming out over the next few weeks as well as some major cross promotions. For now tell your friends, post on forums etc but rest assured that we have a lot more to show ;)
I really can't believe you guys haven't met your goal yet, I can't see how this game be more awesome at this point and we are still only half way through. Everything I read about it is great, the lore is beyond fantastic and the gameplay seems like what a truly player driven Mass Effect should be; not to mention that the art is top notch. The only question I have is where is the rest of the people with the money!? We should be talking stretch goals at this point, not worrying about if the project will make it or not. In any case what can we do to help, besides talking about the game with our friends?
@Patrick: All backers who pledge at $10 or higher qualify for the Knighthoods, medals etc.
Does knighthood apply to every pledge level?
Great, good to know, thanks for the answer!
@Dylyan: You backed within the first week of the campaign, you are def in the first 3000. If you upgrade your pledge you are still within the first 3000 (just avoid unpledging before you upgrade and everything should be fine) :)
Hey guys! Quick question, I'm planning on upping my pledge amount later in the campaign - will I stay among the first 9000 (or even 3000? No idea how to find out) backers, even after I upped the pledge?
