Corrections to last post "Surveys and Getting the Game"

Posted by The Fun Pimps Entertainment LLC (Creator)

Amazon Payment Kickstarter Backers - We apologize as made an error in the last post and have discovered that we can in fact get your survey data anytime. So now we will wait until at least 90% of you Alpha or greater Amazon backers have completed the survey and begin collecting and bringing your data into our system and then sending out emails with a registration key and instructions on how to register and download the game.

 We are processing a lot of data and will get you all up and running as soon as possible! And for now we ask that you please do not email us as answering thousands of additional emails will prevent us from getting you the game. We ask you to be patient a little longer as we get you the game in the coming hours or days!

You stay cool! The Fun Pimps

      Ahh gamer entitlement at it's best on display here. Patiance is a virtue after all.

      I was being patient and still trying to be, but this is punishing people that have filled it out.

      Also, it would be better to let us download the game now so thousands are not at the same time and crash their servers.

      i think you just put in your email that works, so you can access it and the information to get the game ect...

      So in the survey, they didn't specify what email to put in there. Were we supposed to put a particular one in, or just one that works?

      C'mon Pimps please don't delay the people who badly want the game, just because of some peoples arrogance and tiny memory. :L

      hmmm, what is it like 1387 people for the 10% that might not fill out that survey. i say having it at 70% instead of 90% would be more realistic.... fill those surveys out people :L

      Why not just pull the names and emails they have from the people that got it filled out then just pull the new names every 24 hrs? They get a .CSV file of the names it's not that hard to sort out the new one's every day. There could easily be more than 10% of the backers that pitched in at the beginning that are not really paying attention to the survey email.

      i agree with hauke, this is a great hybrid and i have awaited a game like this for quite some time, just waiting that little extra time to finish up the alpha is nothing much tbh guys xD

    16. Dead Workers Party on

      Here's the problem with 90%... there's a reason you haven't already hit that number. The folks who are not filling it out, either don't care enough to do it. Or it's going to spam and they don't see. So, we're all screwed by those 2 groups. The fans. The ones who DO care about the game. Now which group should you be worried about more?

      @Hauke Well I backed from $25 to $35 because I learned that alpha will be available immediately, what is your point?

    24. Doc Hollis on

      Why is everyone saying they won't get it tonight? It's not even 1 in the afternoon here yet...I have a feeling i'll be playing by tonight.

    25. Harry Fancy Fry on

      Agree with Antonius Springback Weezel. I must admit I am disappointed I will not be able to start the download tonight (The internet here is very slow) but we kickstarters are getting it earlier than it was planned.

      amazon should tell us what the current percent of surveys have been filled out :( the waiting is killing me :D gonna be great tho :P

      patric törnström on

      common guys lets get that 90% of pepole done so we can get the game

    28. Maxeren on

      @Benjamin: god read... ;)

      Hauke Lenz on

      the reason y they take 90% is.
      they want to cover a large amount at once.
      so they don't need to waste time and money.
      what they can use (on the other side) for the game.

      correction: they tell it how they do it. not we.

      typibg from mobile phone xD

      its not "why" its a fact.
      the devs tells how they do it. and we.
      and thats good like it is.
      they also could say they wait for allsurveys to be done. maby. or maby not. there guideline tells 90% and finish.
      just wait

      I don't understand why it has to be such a high percentage though. why not like 75% that seems more reasonable to me than 90.

      Never ceases to amaze me that people can come together and be supportive of one another to the point of raising $507,612 for an awesome game and then hours after it is funded be reduced to name calling and flamming one another. Really people? Everyone is brave behind a keyboard. Just be patient and for Pete sake if you can't hold a "conversation" on here without calling someone some form of name, then keep your teeth together, shut up and color!

    36. Owen Turk on

      Doc, anyone who has an uneasy feeling only has themselves to blame. The developers have been very upfront about what will happen. No one promised the 16th. If you don't have the patience to wait a few days, at most, you probably don't have the patience needed to play an alpha version of w game.

      i payed 60$ and i'm happy to wait.
      i'm backed this project b/c i like the way it is.
      and just btw. good things need time.
      most of you are just >lol<
      buildung up pressure. thinking that the devs want to make fun of you.
      you all get what you payed for. but it takes time. they need to push a lot of files to the right so nothing goes wrong.

      i have better things to do then flaming or crying.
      there is something thats called reallife u know ;)

    38. Bill Briggs on

      Actually, we've already been charged through Amazon--they have our information. But, getting our addresses in their system allows TFP to contact us more efficiently instead of having to go through Kickstarter.
      However, that's all irrelevant. They larger a mass-email they can do, the less work it is and less money it costs them. I'd rather see the money we backed with go toward the production of the game, not wasted on frivolous expenses.

    39. Daniel Vang on

      Getting peoples address is for the amazon payment you derps. How else are they gonna charge you? Magic? nope

    40. Michael Richardson on

      I supported the Warmachine KS and won't see anything for a year, but that wasn't the point of supporting them. I supported them to help because I believed in the product, not that I was on KS purchasing things.

      You guys should be thankful that they are letting you access the alpha so early. Please read the kickstarter FAQ before you back anything.

    41. Doc Hollis on

      I hope they update soon telling us what percentage of backers sent in their surveys. It would put a lot of us at ease.

    42. James Miller on

      If its something like another product like tshirts
