Jasix the answer is YES.
What about going the other way around? If a backer, for some reason, has to go back a tier? Is that possible too? (it would be bad news for both parties, but it can happen Image)

Nothing's locked in till the kickstarter is completed one way or another so you can change your pledge as many times as you like till then.

WE are IN!

(Negotiating with the budget person on trying to upgrade, but gotta wait on taxes...)

I'd really have loved to get a memorial plaque (with minimal rewards) for $1K... $2,500 is just beyond today's budget.
I may try to run a gofund/indiegogo to raise money for it, or we'll honor him within the SG.

Looking forward to running the tunnels with you all!

Pledged! Wish I could give more than I did. Maybe I'll up it or pledge again before it ends. :D

I wonder if any of the "old devs" have been informed of this project? I've emailed April (CuppaJo), but she's the only Dev whose contact info I have.

Just a nagging question in my head... What happens if the kickstarter is not successful? Does that mean SoH won't launch? Can you do another kickstarter seeking less? I've never given to a kickstarter before so I am kind of nervous. Really hate the thought that it may not get all the way to 400k. CoT got to 600k but they had a bigger fanbase at the time. Not trying to be negative AT ALL just curious what happens if we don't get to 400k.

There are other options, and the actual amount pledged would give Heroic Games a good idea of the amount of support they have for Ship of Heroes.

It's a bit early to panic though, the KS hasn't even been live for one whole day yet ;)

Yes, far from time to panic. A lot of people are waiting to get paid. Others are hording their money until after taxes are taken care of. And others are still deciding how much to give. There are likely a lot of peeps on the fence on this one. I'm not slamming these games, but VO and CoT don't have a lot to show for all of the money they took in, and it does have people a bit gunshy. People are still wondering if a superhero based MMORPG still has a future. DCUO is doing fine, but that is because it is the only choice for console players. The PC version is a little anemic for players.

There is a future for this type of game, but the proper formula has yet to be found. Even CoH, for all of its glory, did not hit the formula spot on; if it had hit the narrow target precisely, it would still be running.

So I'm supporting SoH as much as I can. Besides the Kickstarter, I am vocal on the MMORPG forums drumming up support and hushing the naysayers, of which there are MANY. I sent an email to all of my gaming friends, and especially my CoH friends, letting them know about this game. And, I am going to do it again this weekend. And I am calculating if I can up the ante and give a little more...

Wasn't Cuppajo a forum mod and not a dev?

One thing I'm seeing repeatedly in blog and Facebook comments is that a lot of people are unhappy with the reward tiers being offered. Some of this is confusion - while it has been added to the FAQ, it is still not clear in the list of rewards that all Kickstarter contributors get a "free copy" of the game (assuming that is a digital download). It is also not stated (outside of the FAQ) that higher tiers automatically get lower tier rewards. This is pretty standard stuff so I am not sure why people are so confused...but it's also standard to state these things clearly.

The other main fuel for complaints is that above about the $50 mark the perceived value of the rewards seems to be pretty small. Not saying it's an issue for me - I found a tier that was a sweet spot for me and pledged early - but passing along that this seems to be a common complaint.

It may be too late to adjust rewards at various tiers but eh communications thing needs clearing up pronto, and probably we need to see the devs directly responding to some of the blog comments that are starting to collect out there.

Again - happy to be pledged, hoping for the best!

Yep, it's being discussed on a thread at viewtopic.php?f=13&t=236.

The queries are not only on facebook though, Reddit is showing the same concerns and I couldn't agree more about the questions piling up on the KS page - that's not good - someone really needs to get on top of that pronto. People seeing all those unanswered questions will just close their browser tab in a hurry.
