Let's see if we can start a movement under these like we did with the Dragon Lord Tier!

Upgrade one of your Pro's at least to a Grand King if you don't have one.

Let's see how long they last, will they make it to Monday?

Last chance to get a reasonably priced pro player in something.

I am looking to add a GK to my Pro.

I was more or less curious about exactly what I'd get by combining them.

Basically, if it is what I'd get by buying the 2, getting all the ks exclusives for both, and then putting them together, I'd go for it.

I've heard multiple draft bonuses is not a problem.

But I was curious about a lot of the stretch goals, e.g. double the exclusives (minus lotus). Does this mean I'd get:

Pro = 1 set (lotus) + 1 set (no lotus)
GK = 2 set (lotus) [presumably from the collector bonus] + 1 set (no lotus)

total = 3 sets (w/ lotus) + 2 sets (no lotus)

Will 3 month VIP become 6 month, or just a single 3?

I assume I'd get 4+1 and 4+1 starter decks, so, two of the "Dragon's blood" starter decks.


I guess I would just love a definitive explanation before I drop another 500. Does anyone have a link to an official explanation?

Thanks!

Ashenor

As far as i know Renword, they will merge everything onto one account if you want. The only thing i have seen that will not stack is the VIP, because they said they want that to really be one per person.

Outside of that i think that the Pro Player tourney, you will only have one entry into.

Ashenor
05-18-2013, 02:19 PM
568, we are heading back in the right direction. Let's get this puppy under 500!

renword
05-18-2013, 02:23 PM
VIP not stacking isn't too bad.

2x draft is probably the most important part for me. I also thought the other bonuses couldn't hurt, thus GK as opposed to 2xPro.

I just didn't want to get all excited about getting 2x Stretch goals, like primal pack, etc. and then being let down.

Thanks for the info Ashenor :)

Ashenor
05-18-2013, 02:26 PM
Np, ya you will get double of all the other stuff. If you can swing it, i think the Grand King is good to have one of. It's one of those things down the road i think some people will regret not getting when they had the chance.

IndigoShade

I bit the bullet earlier and added a GK to my Pro. That alone is probably more than I ever spent playing M:tG, but that was years ago when I was a kid without a job :p Hopefully the game turns out to be as good as I hope it will be and in a year I not only won't regret it, but will be glad I got a discount!

Ashenor
05-18-2013, 02:46 PM
I think its a big step a lot of us took. I think when set 2 comes out especially and you are drafting twice a week for free and getting a decent amount of cards coming in you will really see the value of what you got coming in.

Ya Genosaurer just hold on to your pro for now, DC is not going to sell out anytime soon if you have no plans on getting the GK. You can probably switch close to the last day if you want to go that route.

Crypto really has been great, i have never thought about even backing close to this much on anything in a KS. But i believe in them and can't wait to play.

I don't think GK's will go crazy until they hit in the 70's though.

If you play paper TCG's competitively, $500 isn't really that much cash (sadly). It's rare you get to play a Magic deck that's less than $500. For a digital game, it looks like you'll pay less in the long run and you'll have an easier time finding a match.

You can barely buy a playset of "Underground Sea" with $500 :D

I mean almost and competitive standard deck is 300+ with most around $500 if you are playing a midrange deck.

Now that infect is gone for course and its 40 dollar deck.

Sadly true! Maybe ~ 1000€ over the past of 8 years (not only mtg, also Yugioh)
I think it pays for itself after one-two years + supported the company/game.

Remember guys, even if you don't have the funds on June 7th, the payment will get declined, Amazon gives you a extra 7 days to add the funding source or try again.

So for those close you could work the system a bit and have until June 14th to pay for whatever you get.

When they first merged paypal sales, only 13 were GK, so if that number has climbed close to a hundred they will need to do it again and shut off paypal. When this annoucement is made the mad rush is on becuase people will not know how much the available pool will be reduced just like pro tier. I anticipate either today or tommorrow.

I was perfectly happy sitting at Pro Player + Early Bird King, but the set 2 boosters are mighty tempting. I registered a second KS account to lock in a GK spot before they're all gone, and will wait to see the last stretch goal to see whether to keep it or not.

well, a pro player slot just opened up and there is a new grand king in the world. Those 50 set 2 packs kicked me over the edge as I was already considering upgrading to GK. 50 packs from set 2 is $100 alone and the 90 packs ($180) from guild master alone make it worth the upgrade, not to mention all the other bonuses. This game is a fricken vacuum cleaner, sucking all the money out of my bank account without stopping. I started off as a lowly knight, now I'm a grand king

Ashenor
05-20-2013, 07:40 PM
Just do the GK at least, or grab it and hold on to your pro for a bit while you decide. If its one or the other get the GK for sure.

Just let the forums now if you are going to release your Pro to try and help out someone.

I don't think there will be a frenzy until it get's to around 70 as i said before. Pro's blew up because people were just stacking. These a lot are upgrading, and still thinking about it.

If you are on the fence i would just do this now, don't wait and wake up and they are gone like the pro's were. It's $2500 to the next tier now once they are gone between the $250 tiers.

I wish I had the money to go Grand King; I was lucky enough to secure one of those castaway Pro's since I know I get deeply invested in competitive games and a free booster draft will encourage me to step up my game per week.

Glad to have been able to snag my pro spot :) Took a lot of refreshing and battling amazon/ks on logins and confirm points, lost out on doing it 2-3 times.

Grats on getting one, nothing wrong with a pro at all. Great value that will keep giving back for the lifetime of you playing the game. It will be a lot harder trying to score a pro once the Grand Kings are gone. Not many people are gonna drop there's for one of the 23 primal spots left :).

This is driving me insane - my indecision on upgrading is making me incapable of getting anything done at work today I just keep checking kick starter. I want to go grand king but I am also considering just adding gk to my pro but even $500 seems like a lot but I know it will be a drop in the bucket if I stick with this.

The remaining time will be a little weird though with the most desirable mid range tiers all gone in the next day or 2.

I've been thinking about this. I keep thinking "It's GOTTA slow down" and keep getting proven wrong. All of the GK's sold on top of current numbers will put us at just over a million, paypal should kick us to the 1.06 mil threshold, and then, as you say, things go funny at the top. You put in $250 for some cool PvE stuff, or you go primal (waaay big for too many folk). Then seriously, it's GOTTA slow down...yeah.

Yeah, I am wondering if once GK is gone, they will throw a few bones to the Collector, Raid Leader, and Guild Master in the final stretch goal so people at lower tiers have an appealing upgrade path again. Otherwise, the demand for those has been low enough that I can see the momentum faltering a bit.

Malicus
05-21-2013, 02:19 AM
I was thinking along the lines of this faltering but with the possibility to multi pledge someone seeing this late can still get a lot of value from multiple kings and seeing so many of the higher tier rewards gone tells people that there is serious backing of this project so they might as well get in cheaper while they can, still a long time relatively before the KS ends

Katkillad they could, but i don't think as many are doing Grand Kings via paypal like Pro Player with stacking. A lot are dropping the pro's and upgrading or doing a second KS account it seems. I could be wrong though.

I got GK via Paypal because I'm keeping my Early King as well. But I don't know how many others will have done the same.

Malicus
05-21-2013, 05:47 AM
I picked up mine with a second KS account. Not sure how paypal donations are working but if you actually have to hand over cash anyone wanting to hedge on a GK is going to do it through KS. Also 50 GK is $25000 which would be a significant portion of the money gone through paypal to date so unlikely to make up even that number.

That said I could be wrong - better get in there now. If I went GK you can too :).

I'm a paid QA Engineer and CCG fanatic and even I was saying "too much" for a while. I had talked myself into Dungeon Crawler as a backup to Pro (which sold out about 2 hours before I could pledge, as best I could tell from looking at forum posts/comments on the KS). Then I thought "hey, you got a raise and you've spent like 10 times that playing magic...Shut up and do it."

Like I said it is an estimate due to the fact we don't really know who is upgrading/buying and uncertain paypal by the minute #s. It is however likely true due to your statement.

Also, don't count out the King and lower. KS's typically have a monster rush in the last few days of people hopping in at low-med levels once they see all the stretch goals they get in on.

I know plenty of folks that wouldn't drop $500 on the game, but might drop $50-65. Enough people do that, you'll hit the last goal unless it's insanely high. My guess is maybe 1.2-1.25M.

With so much time left, I would be surprised if they don't open new tiers, honestly. Whether they're just copies of older tiers at higher prices (like the early bird king) or something different.

I hope they add some lil boni for the other 250$ tiers. So GK grows also a lot more hihihi...

Over $4000 has been added since the GK tier sold out, so apparently some people still see value in other tiers.
