      Where does the Ancestral Vision playmat show when it's available? In the Backerkit survey add-ons?

    3. Tom van Uijen on

      I'm assuming the first 250 have been sold. Has the second set of 250 been put up yet? I didn't receive anything about that.

    4. Matt Howard on

      @torch If you are truly upset that 250 more people are going to be able to get it, then cancel your order. It's still super limited, and it's rather childish to get upset that a handful of people will get it. I was able to get the playmat during the first 250, and I'm not complaining that a tiny, tiny percentage of people will have the same playmat as me.

      You don't like it? Tell them with your wallet, don't order it so someone who isn't upset by it can have a chance, and you save 30-something pounds and get to keep your entitled attitude.

      @torch well you sound like you don't want it because Another 250 have access to this. Seems like a perfectly reasonable option for them to do for you so you don't feel you get cheated.

      @johnavonart wish I was more actively playing MTG or games that use playmats as I would have bought more than just one. but thank you for finally offering these I cant wait to use mine.

      Hey all. Simmer down. They are doing their best and this is all wonderful. When we signed up we didn’t know there would be an AV may as well. So now calm down and let them do their work. 250 more playmats does not make this any less super limited.

      So now you'll cancel my order because I asked a question? Why not just offer as many as you can sell if it isn't going to be a limited edition? I just think you should stick to the terms of the original offer. Just wait until you release the 250 more and more people are "devistated.". Let's make a thousand!

      @torch: we can't please everyone. I will cancel your order and refund you.

      I know the 250 people who got them won't be complaining as loud as the many who didn't but the item is titled, "Very limited edition playmats - only 250 produced. Hand signed by John. Shipping free. One per customer."

      @torch - the reason they're doubling the supply was because it sold out while not everyone had access - rather unfair, as we all paid to have access to the same backerkit, but we should be denied because of computer error?
      If you don't want it anymore, just take it off your order, and give it to one of the people who'd still like it.

      Wait, you made a limited edition product, it presumably sold out because it was super limited and now you are doubling the supply? Isn't the whole idea that it was super limited?

      Why are you changing the terms after I have already purchased? Can I get a discount since it's no longer as limited? You were presumably charging a 10 pound premium on it for being so limited.

    12. TheGreyFencer on

      Do we know when all the backerlit emails will finish getting out?

    13. RH. on

      @Creator I'm glad you are doing this because I still haven't received my e-mail.

      Hey guys, I love the project. I understand the AV playmats are meant to be special, but you could probably open 1,000 more up, and I'm sure people would buy them. The art is incredible, and people love John.

      Thanks for your time.

      Nothing but professionals running this KS. Well played Gov'n'r.

      Hey Guy, if I wanted my playmat signed in gold how much extra would that be?

      I was a very late back 7300ish and just got my Backerkit email, should be almost done

      This is good news! I finally got the email, but there's no Ancestral Visions Playmat visible on Backerkit. Guess the first round is already sold out?

      Very cool of you guys to do this!

      You are awesome for doing this, honestly you could produce 7000 of them and still sell out. It's not you, it's backerkit that dropped the ball you gave them. Thanks again for giving us all one more chance to get this fantastic playmat.

      i would like to show appreciation to the team behind this project, and appologize for the way i uhhh, threw shade and salt at the project. i shouldve known you guys would fix it and shouldve never doubted u in the first place.

    23. Justin Zimmerman on

      Appreciate you guys going the extra mile to help remedy the situation. I don't think that it was necessary, but I'm sure others will appreciate it.

      I can see people being a little annoyed by the situation, but those handful of people who are completely "devastated" by this hiccup need to grow up. Shit happens, that's life. It's just playmats people, you will be okay.

    24. Ian Lau on

      That's beyond kind of you to do that. Thank you!

      On the other side of the fence: RIP your hand.

      Can’t wait to try and get my hands on one of these playmats, just hope they don’t drop when I’m at work D:

      I'm pretty sure I gabbed one but thanks for the support for everyone else!

      @JohnAvon - Sorry about your hand!
