I apologize in advance because this post is a little long, has a lot of numbers, and goes against conventional thinking. But, I'm bored, it's late, and I can't sleep. So I'm going to challenge conventional thinking! (NOTE: Before you reply keep in mind that I am ABSOLUTELY gaming the system here to make things better for all the GK's.)

Lets look at the glorious "Grand King":

"Everything from the King, The Pro Player, The Guild Master, The Dungeon Crawler, The Raid Leader, and The Collector tiers (King tier is included only once--not six times). “The Grand King” exclusive Deck Customizable Sleeves."

So we know GK gets 1xKing and 1xeach $250 Exclusive Bonus. So lets go over these.

King: (Note: Ignoring all Equipment bonuses to make this shorter)
-4 Starter Decks (40.00 value).
-150 Booster Packs (300.00 value).
-Kickstarter Exclusive Alternate Art PVP cards: Replicator’s Gambit, Princess Victoria, Extinction, Ragefire and Pack Raptor.
-Kickstarter Exclusive PVE Mercenaries: Zoltog, Burgamot Ebonrock, Mooof, Mephistophelius, Monkey of the Nine Tails, Glorfenblort (360k), Bebo (440k), Cardboard Tube Samurai (720k), and Aethynia (1.16M)
-Kickstarter Exclusive PVE Cards: Lady Cassandra, Void Marauder, Prospero, Sylvan Enchanter, Scourge Knight, The Wrath of Zakiir, Spectral Lotus Garden, Orson's Dream (330k), Spectral Assassin (390k), Moment of Glory (660k), The Crowd Roars (790k), and Ninja Training (960k)
-Kickstarter Exclusive Deck Customizable Sleeves: Warrior, Captain, Knight, Champion, King, and "1 Million Dollars" (1.06M)
-Primal Pack (490k)
-5 Extra Boosters (490k)
-3 months VIP (540k)
-3 Free Drafts (600k)
-1 Copy of all PvE Exclusives (660k)
-Dragon's Blood Starter Deck (860k)
-5 Set 2 Booster (1.5M, not reached yet)

Now lets look at the $250 Tiers and what they get that is DIFFERENT from what King gets.
The Collector Tier:
-Second set of All Exclusive Cards from King. (That's 2x PvP cards and 4x PvE since King PvE cards are sets of 2)
-6 PvP AA's each year, for life
-Collector Deck Sleeves
-15 Set 2 Boosters (1.5M)
-1 Free Draft a Week for 1 year (Doesn't Stack)(1.5M)
The Raid Leader Tier:
-Raid Leader's Blessing in PvE, for life!
-Raid Leader Sleeves
-15 Set 2 Boosters (1.5M)
-1 Free Draft a Week for 1 year (Doesn't Stack)(1.5M)
The Dungeon Crawler Tier:
- +100% extra loot (gold, items, etc.) for life
- The Dungeon Crawler Sleeves
-15 Set 2 Boosters (1.5M)
-1 Free Draft a Week for 1 year (Doesn't Stack)(1.5M)
The Guild Master Tier:
-10% PvE experience for all guildies, for life
-3x30 Boosters for friends
-The Guild Master Sleeves
-15 Set 2 Boosters (1.5M)
-1 Free Draft a Week for 1 year (Doesn't Stack)(1.5M)
The Pro Player Tier:
-1 Free Draft a Week, for life
-The Pro Player Sleeves
-15 Set 2 Booster (1.5M)

Now lets just do some mindless math. We'll Summarize the exclusive cards with PvP and PvE to make this short. Sleeves we'll leave out because I'm lazy here. We'll just add up all these tiers and see what we get.

The "REAL" Grand King:
-2xPvP Exclusives (CT)
-4xPvE Exclusives (CT)
-240 Set 1 Boosters (155 King, 90 GMT)
-1 Primal Pack (KingT
-3 Months of VIP (King)
-"Dragon's Blood" starter deck (King)
-6 AA PvP Cards a year (CT)
-Raid Leaders Blessing (RLT)
-100% Loot Drops (DCT)
-10% Exp (GMT)
-1 Free Draft Per Year (CT/GMT/RLT/DCT Drafts don't stack)
-125 Set 2 Boosters!! (50 GK, 15 CT, 15 GMT, 15 RLT, 15 DCT, 15 PPT)

And there you have it, ignoring common sense and strictly adding numbers the way they're posted, The "Real" Grand King is in line to receive 125 Set 2 Boosters. I like what I see :)

Hello,
First 155+90 = 245. Also, it's 1 free draft per week for life, not 1 free draft per year. Maybe you really need to get some rest.

125 Set 2 boosters when set 2 launches or.... when the game launches? :P

haha Indeed I do need some rest. But at least I don't need to change it since you did it for me :)

I don't follow. So what do you mean by the real grand king?

The Arena at launch. One thousand Grand Kings enter. Only one leaves. The "Real" Grand King!

I approve of this plan. As a Collector.

Of course, wouldn't that mean that our two Producers have to fight the R&D team to the death? Alongside a bear if we reach 2 million?

Does GK really get 125 Set 2 boosters? I would've thought they just get 15 for the legendary stretch goal + 50 for the other stretch, not 15*5 + 50

I too expect only 15 set 2 boosters instead of 75 from grand king. Makes little sense to count it that way.

He's just read the description of the tier, and added.
This seems counter-intuitive but it respects the definition of the Grand King : All from King (once) and each $250 tier

The Set 2 boosters are not part of King, they are part of its stretch goal. There is no reason to expect that the last stretch goal bonus will apply 6 times to GK, while all the others will not.

Ah I just quickly glanced over the post and missed the "ignoring common sense" part :)

I believe he's ignoring the common sense application of the stretch goals an instead assuming a contrived version where the grand kings inherits the stretch goal bonuses from it's "component" tiers.

That would make me a happy camper. But Id be happy with GK getting its noted perks +1 extra king. Hell Im happy as is anyway. :)

it would make more sense and bring it's value more on par with PP+2 king
