Customizing Your Rewards - New Tiers for You
Before we head into our final week of the Defense Grid 2 Kickstarter, we wanted to respond to the community who has been asking to have more control of the pledge rewards they desire than the Kickstarter model really supports. Because you can only choose one dollar amount and one reward tier, typically we make rewards cumulative. But, we have often heard from folks: "Hey, I'd like this thing that is expensive, but I don't need all the things that come before it. Can you make it easier for me to get?"
So, to ensure that we're still being fair to folks who have already bid at higher rewards (we're very thankful to them for their support), and to give folks who don't have as much money at their disposal access to prime AMD video cards (at less than their retail cost!), we've opened up new tiers that let you add one of the two video cards to any other tier. We've also added a tier that lets you add a USB stick and Fletcher Fortune Button to any other tier as well.
Basically if you choose the new tiers, you can add $70 to your pledge on top of any existing tier to add an AMD Radeon HD 6770 video card to your pledge rewards ($90 if international), $75 to add the USB stick & Fletcher Fortune Button to your pledge rewards ($85 if international), and $90 to your pledge to add an AMD Radeon HD 6870 video card to your pledge rewards ($110 if international).
IMPORTANT: For us to recognize that you are desiring this, not only do you need to add money to your total pledge amount, but you MUST choose the newly added add-a-thing tier level appropriate for your choice so we can keep track of how many of these add-on tiers we will be supporting.
Each day, we'll message any new folks on these tiers to verify that we know which base tier they are adding the video card or USB stick & button to. From there we should be able to better open up the limits to make sure that we don't run out of video cards for the people who are pledging in order to receive them.
Let us know if you have any questions in the comments or you can always email us through the Kickstarter messaging system.
