Wait, did they change there policy or did you answer my direct question incorrectly? I asked what level of pre-backers would be allowed into this CBT test phase. The answer I received was that only the $100 backers (Legendary) and Friends/Family would be in this CBT cycle. Now I see that they are phasing in start dates down to the minimum pre-funding level of @25 (Veteran) backers?
Did Steph change his mind after hearing it for the consumers or did my question not get answered correctly? I ask this because for $25 I will back and be in the CBT since they have pixels, I played the Alpha cycle and want this title to not suck big ole monkey balls.
They called an audible. I'd like to think that the leaders of several community organizations were all saying the same thing and they listened.
I told him I personally felt like they could secure more early buy ins at the lower tier if they just did a head start instead of phases so the people that already bought top packages and are organized and dominating the test phases don't shit on everyone else to the point of lack of interest.
I'll declare it a tentative Donk Diplomacy score +1.
Ok so Stef listened to people. I sent him a message about exactly this issue and how do you want to be perceived by your consumers before your title even launches considering the current marketplace and the burn out on pre-funding games. I give them credit, at least they listen and correct course from time to time. That is a whole hell of a lot more than the common place environment anymore between developers and the community/consumers.
I will back for $25 bucks and use your referral link Donk. Thank's for the clarification. I didn't want to believe that after our concise discussion that your answer was opposite to what they were doing.
