Relatively new comer learning about this game. I noticed on the kickstarter page that the $540K stretch goal is a free 3 month subscription for backers. This led me to wonder what this means. Do we have to pay monthly subscription and also pay for card packs? Are there details about how much this will cost?

I am (hoping) that I am mistaken in some way. Maybe the subscription is an alternative to buying packs / drafts (?)

They are talking about a soft sub of $4 a month that will net you a pack a week.

The subscription mentioned is an optional "soft sub" where you pay $4.00 per month to get 1 booster pack a week (approximately an $8.00/month value)

Yeah, subscription is optional and just a way to build your card collection at a discount.

$4 a month gets you 1 booster per week. Since # of weeks vary per month, the amount of boosters will too. But over a full year it works out to $48 for 52 boosters, or $0.92 per booster obtained this way, instead of $2 per booster if bought through the online store.

Yes, its completely optional.

It does matter how they split up the months - if it is a 28 day sub then it is an exact $1 rate per booster.

More MMO's and subs work this way, so we just need a proper confirmation on how much we get out of it - the sub is of course optional.

It's funny how the way the stretch goal is worded in the picture it can scare people off

Yeah, some of the text is pretty misleading or simply missing information.

For example, KS Comments have a lot of requests for Android/iOS. They really need to say in the title is for PC/Mac/Mobile (iOS/Android). I think they just didn't want to because the timeline for mobile is probably different than their timeline for PC/Mac.

From a PR standpoint, I'm sure there's a better method of describing it.

Collectors Club? Special Access? Elite? Preferred?
Hexites?
Collector's Club Membership - Complete with special previews of the next set, free monthly tournaments and a bonus pack a week!
Or something.

Edit: We should get them to run the new stretch goals by us first, before throwing them on KS. =D
Edit2: Also, this is *not* what the sub currently is. ATM it's just weekly packs at a 50% discount.

Perfect, thanks for the fast responses! That actually sounds pretty sweet and it seems I just misunderstood.

That's their wording that made you misunderstand :)

I'm quite sure this will be clarified/corrected once the said goal is hit, hopefully even before.

They already corrected it if you read the newest KS update.

The stretch image still shows weird wording.
