My guess is that they've brainstormed this morning and the update is being huge.

I'm assuming that today's update will show at least the next stretch goal... maybe more depending on how "spread out" they are. But since we've been averaging like 1 a day, I think they should show at least the next 2 :)

Was confused myself, they usually at least have the article up by now. Maybe no new article today either.

They're removing articles, not adding them :)

Well seeing as how we're just 100k away from a-freakin million dollars, they're probably getting the last stretch goals ready to post. I'm sure they'll have it up soon.

I guess they will reveal the 3 uncommon goals, and save the Legendary hidden.

They're always so consistent, they have us trained like Pavlov and his dogs. The suspense is killing me.

They are making up stuff on the fly for us, since we are killing it :).

Well, the dwarven drafting article is back up on hextcg.com, so things are happening, just not on OUR time schedule, dang it! :)

I mean it really did break all the normal patterns for a kickstarter, so it's admittedly got to be hard to prepare for. I know they've been working on a strong PvE showing, so maybe that's going to be today? I just hope we get all 3 uncommon goals at once.

I keep expecting it to slow down. It just keeps riding the wave. What a show. When the hype is over, I hope we can live with the expectations we have given this thing. This is going to be big!

And now, an Ode To A Small Lump Of Green Putty I Found In My Armpit One Midsummer Morning

Putty. Putty. Putty.
Green Putty - Grutty Peen.
Grarmpitutty - Morning!
Pridsummer - Grorning Utty!
Discovery..... Oh.
Putty?..... Armpit?
Armpit..... Putty.
Not even a particularly
Nice shade of green.
As I lick my armpit and shall agree,
That this putty is very well green.

What's funny is the number of donators HAS slowed down, but it's had no effect on the cash influx because people are just throwing MORE money per person in!

All along I've been expecting a slow down... so far it keeps blowing that away.

Once Grand King sells out... I think we'll see a reduction big earning days.

If they still average 200-250 people per day, plus a surge at the end... they could easily break 10,000 supporters total.

Crypto is probably locked in a "OH CRAP OH CRAP OH CRAP... we weren't prepared for the rabid swarm" planning bunker trying to calm their nerves and finish out the stretch goals.

I think we're gonna see steady (but not quite as fast as week 1) progress. That huge jump was caused by a supply vs. demand frenzy. Grand King may see a similar run for the last 100 or so spots, but it will be slower just due to the price hurdle.

There's still one tier that has the potential to explode like Pro. Dungeon Crawler.

One good, solid PvE update showing crazy rewards from dungeons that make the DC perk amazing and... boom.

We just haven't seen enough from the PvE side to know if it's a good bet or not.

This may or may not be true with regard to GK. While it is a price hurdle, there could very well be a lot of players upgrading their $250s to GKs. In many cases, this could mean that person is adding $250, and someone else might be buying up their Pro spot as well.

What if this pause means they are gonna rework the tiers today?!?!?!? Or maybe the new stetch goals are so amazing they're debating whether or not to put them up. Or maybe they want to do both!!!!! I have to know. What if I just sneak in to the me........

Not really but they have been updating daily this was the last line from yesterdays post

"That's all from Entrath for now. Enjoy your weekend and let's see how many stretch goals we can beat over the next two days!"

so maybe no update till tomrrow :(

Someone should start another thread about whether or not to make sets go out of print. That'll be good for another 100 or so pages.

Kicktraq is showing that Hex has more comments today so far than any other day period. Crypto is experimenting on trying to increase hype and contributions by whipping up a frenzy in the comments about a new update.

05-20-2013, 02:28 PM
I got an email from them about how today their will be no update, because the person who does them is out of town yesterday and probably today. Next update will be tomorrow about same time.

Starts like this

Hello! This is Cory... yes, Will is not updating today, he wanted to go to an event that rhymes with Tro Pour Dan Seigo. So, he couldn't be in the office on a Sunday, some nerve! Just kidding, Will has done an AMAZING job keeping the Kickstarter rolling and the information flowing. Well done Will!

But rather than have no update I thought I would take this time to chat with you about HEX, so letís start with an important announcement...

Which assumes Sunday - Monday. With update being tuesday. Give them some time, only 4 goals left, dont want to shatter them too quickly.
