I don't know if there's a thread exclusively devoted to this so I felt like starting one up. I know a lot of people have this information in their signatures, but this might be nice to gather everything in one spot.

I am currently pledged at DC, with the intention of adding 2 Collectors and maybe a King as the deadline draws nearer. Holding out hope for a GK, though. :D

Flip flopped for days about producer here... but I`ve come to the conclusion that the most enjoyment will come from my dinner & drafts (Dragonlord/Grand King/Pro Player/Pro Player)

One Pro Player tier, though I wish the KS had been just a bit later so I could have gotten a Grand King for the PvE benefits too.

Hah! I've learned that I should listen to you, Gwaer ;) I didn't consider this might fan the flames of animosity. I hope it doesn't.

I really was just curious. Also, and this thought just popped up, it might help me (and others) know which big fish to befriend in-game. I suppose that's what the guild threads are for though.

@Boss: That sounds like a fantastic combination! And Dragonlord ain't too shabby, either. Glad you were able to reach a conclusion.

@Madican: 'Grats on a PP! I know how you feel about timing. I really wish I'd discovered this KS sooner. The good news is, we'll be so happy playing once it lands that we won't have time harbor regrets. At least I hope so.

I have guild master right now. I would have had but i was too late PP and personalty i think its the best for pvp after pp and GK.

There are people who have GK +2 PP accounts. Personally i wish Crypt did't let limited tiers be stacked.

First time backing up kickstarter, first time spending upfront net loss (for now) on TCG and going with Grand King. If this TCG cannot succeed in digital world, I don't think anything else have a chance in terms of new TCG.

@true: First GM I've come across! Very cool :) Have you found / started a guild already? As cool as the dungeons sound for soloing, I feel like the Raids will be uber-rewarding! But it seems like you'll need to have similarly-leveled/progressed friends to succeed.

@Mugen: I agree with your sentiments. If this can't succeed, what can? I do wish, with the blessing of hindsight, that I could have had the opportunity to take an upfront net loss instead of constantly buying booster boxes and packs back in my more active TCG days. The chance to do so now has made me very happy, since I'm confident in CZE's ability to keep HEX alive and well for a long time.

It looks like I'm not going to be able to go Primal like I wanted, without giving up more than I wanted, unless I can make some last minute sales on some of my Magic cards. At this point, if I could safely swap a Grand King for a Pro Player tier (and then pick up a Collector), I'd strongly consider it. Combining two Grand Kings seems like a waste. I'd get the same effect by combining a Grand King + Pro + Collector and get more boosters and stuff. Same price, but I don't remove a combo Guild Master/Raid Leader/Dungeon Crawler effect from the game.

GK for sure..
Waffling on the 2nd and potentially 3rd tier.
Might do Collector for 2nd, or King.
If I do King, I might do a 3rd King.

The extra two Kings would be pre-purchases for friends..
If I go for collector, I may keep for the wife and I, so we have a full playset of the exclusive arts.

With the announcement that No New Tiers are to be released. I am willing to bet that Dungeon Crawler & the Collector numbers are about to go down pretty fast. I predict at least one to be gone by end of KS.

When they go... they go FAST!

Probably, but I still expect DC to sell out by the end of the KS.

ForgedSol
06-02-2013, 12:04 PM
I've been watching the progress of the two tiers. Collector is slowly getting more pledges per day than Dungeon Crawler. I first started watching the number when there were about 42% of Collectors compared to the number of Dungeon Crawlers. It's risen to 47%. (Dungeon Crawler will still sell out first, but thought it was interesting that Collector has been gaining ground.)

If you're gonna camp. Might as well camp with the tier you would most likely want to settle on if you fail and/or with the tier that is mostly likely to run out next.

Verdant
06-02-2013, 12:06 PM
DC here. One of those eighty (or something like that) people who pledged the tier when PP was still alive and kicking. My friend is GK so we're pretty much covered in terms of guild and raid bonuses.

I was on the fence for awhile. starting at Captain and worked my way up to King. Its the best deal for what I could afford and I still get most of the goodies. What really locked me in was the Lotus Garden and the dip in booster pack costs.

BlindMan
06-02-2013, 12:07 PM
I was lucky enough to find the KS on day 3. At first I was bummed that I missed early bird king, but I had enough time to talk myself into PP before they sold out. Now I just feel lucky that I had that time. I also got my wife a King tier pledge.

@Tyrfang: I think the DC's are mostly legit. You can change your pledge amount without changing reward tiers. I would think anyone sitting on DC trying for PP is someone willing to go with DC if they can't have PP.

Sithos
06-02-2013, 12:30 PM
I started at Captain and was fairly happy there. But the more I read/saw/pondered I couldn't resist to bump up to King. I'm really excited about Dragon's Blood Deck, Spectral Lotus Garden, and Aethynia who will be BAMF for PVE.

So excited about this game... Last time I was this excited was FFVII anyway I digress.... I bought King and with my economical situation It will be all I can afford but its better than nothing and I am just happy to be part of 10000+ so far in this elite group of backers.

Love ya Cory and Team! :)

P.S Cory, I am going to try to call you tomorrow (monday) and offer my voice acting services for free for any future villians you my need done.

I have a Pro Player slot through Kickstarter (not paypal) and would like to switch to Grand King. If interested we can call crypto and see if they can facilitate the trade. I won't consider any other method though as I don't want to risk losing my Pro Player if I can't get a Grand King.

I know exactly what you mean about risking it. But I doubt Cryptozic has control over Kickstarter pledges. That would actually be pretty scary when thinking about Kickstarter in general if a project could switch around people's pledges. I'd consider swapping a throwaway email account, after figuring out how to cancel the amazon payment to make sure it doesn't go through on my end, but I wouldn't want to be the first person to swap.

BlindMan
06-02-2013, 03:54 PM
I would be nervous about swapping pledges even if I wasn't trading with someone. I'm pledged PP and thought about trying to snipe a GK (while dropping the PP). Even though I'm pretty sure I can't accidentally lose my PP without also gaining GK, it still worries me.

Well... he gets a second draft per week and a second vanity card and gets a complete set of AA cards instead of just two. The Dragonlord makes sense to me. The kings... maybe it's for more spectral lotuses? And just to get more boosters to draft more. He's set on constructed, but still needs packs to draft.

Mine will. I busted out my dusty, old MTG shoe box to show her the basics two days ago. I had her play a black deck against my favorite green.

Got to tell you, her methodology and questions brought back some fond memories. I'd forgotten some of those cards too. Looked it up and I can still make about $30 for the lot. Sentimental value, though.

EDIT:
That was a very tempting item. Maybe if this ended next month after I start the new job. Oh well.

It's really not the price. It's just that at 150 boosters you're pretty much ensured at least one ideal deck (be it through opening or drafting) without much struggle. I relish the slow progression to all-powerful from humble beginnings in terms of deck strategy.

It's the easy way (for me anyway) to guarantee at least 4 of every card at launch (including the Lotus).

I didn't mean value in the sense of amount of packs. I'm not even sure Crypto will allow you to have two separate cards with the same face. Your pretty much merging a sold out rare tier with a tier that has all those same benefits. Just to get another free draft a week?

Seems like everyone is pretty into the big tiers. I just got out of the Peace Corps and working min. wage picking up dog shit at an animal shelter, sooooo don't have too much to throw around on frivolity.

BUT, that's okay with me, as the Captain tier is just perfect in my opinion. The max starter decks and a hefty chunk of boosters to get me going in the game for some constructed PvP. Not of the alt. art stuff interests me, and the PVE AI is going to have to be really good, because I don't see much point in playing a TCG against a computer. Defeating people is all I'm interested in. So none of the exclusive PVE stuff meant much to my eye.

I just hope there will be rankings and such for good old fashioned duels, and preferably, a way to get rewards out of that. I'm willing to put down a bit of money a month if the game is good (like the minor sub. fee rumor that's going around), but if I have to pay money all the time just for any form of meaningful PVP action, I'll be very disappointed.

There are other reasons actually. I'm not merging any of the accounts - I may trade some of the exclusive cards between them though. Maybe I occasionally want to not be on my Producer account and be a little more anonymous as a DL, or even more anonymous as a King. Also, my likeness isn't going to be on at least one, maybe both, of the cards I get the opportunity to do that for - there are other people in my life that would get a kick out of seeing their likeness immortalized in a game.

I think this game is going to be amazing. I'm supporting it in a big way obviously. I trust that everyone who supports the game has good reasons (to them, and that's all that matters!) to pledge at the level they did. At worst, I'm a dude with money and no skillz who has disproportionately helped get the game into your hands! At best, you're going to fear for your tournament life when you see my sleeves ;)

I get an account to loot for cards and my buddy gets a bunch of mercenaries, starter decks, and can play starting in alpha. I really have played far too much pokemon as a child, and have that "gotta catch'em all" mentality. Today's update mentioned my sealed deck dungeon idea, and if that's in, I'm totally playing ALL of my boosters through that, and may need that other king or two.

At the moment I'm a DC but will soon be adding a Collector to that. $500 is a lot of money but the passion from the developers and the community is contagious. I'm far more excited for this than I have been for any other game to the point that I have taken the money I've been saving for my PS4 and using it for this instead! Who needs a "next-gen" console when you have Hex? :D

I haven't really played an actual physical TCG. I've only really played the Magic DOTP games on PC and I did a couple drafts on MTGO. But for some reason when my friend sent me the link for the kickstarter the other day I was pretty much torn between the Dungeon Crawler, Guild Master, and Raid Leader tiers. I finally settled on the Dungeon Crawler tier. Can't wait to play this game.

I just stumbled across this game today. I Haven't played a TCG since MtG and Doomtrooper back in the mid 90's but watching a few videos sold me. I picked up a champion tier and am really looking forward to getting into the game.

Cory has said that the AI will be really good and that the Dungeons/Raids will be genuinely challenging. Coming from someone who has had that many years experience playing hardcore TCGs and MMOs, I am willing to believe it will be exactly as he says. :D

Exactly right. As he mentioned in the latest interview with Angry Joe, I really think we are underestimating the PvE content and I am insanely excited for it all!


Started thinking about Primal again now that the number is creeping up. The collective excitement from the community is palpable--I can't wait!

If you can afford it, go for it man! I've always told myself, we regret the things we don't do in life far more than the things we do do.

Yes, I said doo doo :P

Take a look at the actual game and see the size of the decks vs the field. Custom sleeves are going to be pretty small. That did tip me back towards not going Primal. (But if I did go Primal, I know what I want my sleeves to be like and how to use that small space.) But then listening the AngryJoe video and listening to Cory talk about Guild battles it made me think that 4x PvE cards could be pretty useful since I expect to mostly play PvP.

started at knight, because that's a pretty reasonable buy-in.

went up to king, because i figured the garden will probably be worth it when we get into the later pve raids/dungeons.
plus 150 boosters is enough for a ton of drafts. probably enough to provide momentum for the whole set 1 season.

staying at king because that is how much money i have to spend on this!

As someone who backed at the Warrior level and thought that was a bit pricey, I can't help but think you are all either insane or insanely rich. :P

Hehe. I'd rather say many of the higher backers have extensive experience with one TCG or the other - and an idea about TCO in such a game. If you want to play at a high level you need a certain stock of cards and the higher tiers give you that aplenty (e.g. King 150 boosters for $120, something people will regret not having later on, having to pay $300 for the same cards), plus the extra promo cards and perks.

Let's say it's a calculated risk.

haha i am a king backer and have no tcg experience at all apart from yugioh when i was younger. I saw the king as being an amazing deal and because I am super interested in this game. problem is I have no concept of what anything means in TCG's so i will be learning the hard way

my wife and i decided before to get 2 warrior or 2 captains for us but we just finalized it to 2 kings. i wish i can get the cash to upgrade one of our account to one of the $250 tier or get another king for the 3 lotus garden and all those boosters and exclusive cards but i don't think it will happen in the next 4 days :(

Grand King and King x2. It started around King, went up to Grand King, and then went for two Kings to get the steady income of a playset of Spectral Lotuses daily and to allow for another account with the Kickstarter exclusives.

I'm putting all the money in with the thin excuse of it being a college graduation present for myself. I'm really gambling here that this is going to be a long-lasting game that keeps my attention; this is the first TCG I've put any significant money in. Even though I still pull up Gatherer at times to look at and muse over Magic deck ideas, I don't know enough local players to make it viable so I don't actually own any cards. It was a thin line between me putting $0 into a TCG versus putting a few hundred into it, and Hex crossed that line (and then pulled me over to the $740 mark.)

I'm a collector.

extremely glad some of the higher tiers have gone or my credit card would have taken a bashing.

Don't believe I've ever seen a project on KS with rewards as good as this.

History may make a fool of me but I strongly believe this game will take mtgo's crown.

06-03-2013, 05:11 AM
Started with King on day 2 of the KS campaign, looked more than enough for a casual match here and there.
Then some games I was waiting for got canceled or dumbed down or I simply began to loose interest in them due to Hex features (really, I cannot play any other online TCG at the moment..). So I moved to Grand King.
After that, as a pure PvPer, I did my math (maybe wrong) and I decided to move back (or better side-ward) to 1 PP + 1 Collector. Today I added a Knight, just for fun ;)

06-03-2013, 05:29 AM
I started with a Pro Player tier when there was like 40 left. I woke up at 8am Australian time and checked to see 300+ left. By 11am I thought I would see how it was going and panicked (like a lot) to lock 1 down.

I then thought about a second Pro Player tier one day later and started jamming F5 (as didn't know about auto refresh) and after 5 minutes found an Early Bird King laying about. I thought I might as well grab that and wondered if it was an omen that I should stop there.

2 days later (day 14 or something?) I decided I really wanted the second Pro Player tier and loaded up auto refresh (no check for change, just watched) in Firefox and found one within 10 minutes! Grabbed it fast and sat on it.

I then thought about Grand King about 3 days after they sold out but was too slow to get one and by this time everyone was auto refreshing. From Australia the latency is no good so I ruled out that option. I sat on a Dungeon Crawler, and pondered.

So now I have NFI what to do as I love my PvP, particularly drafting but am worried that the time difference that puts my playtime about 4am-7am US time and about 12pm-3pm Euro time may be spent waiting for long periods to get one going. I do enjoy PvE card games and think the dungeons will be fun, but see no real point combining DC with PP as its just a really bad Grand King. At this stage I am leaning towards Pro Player x 2 and dropping the EBK but may keep it for my 4 year old daughter or a friend who might want to play later on.

Why does throwing money away have to be so complicated! Any thoughts as to what I should do would be appreciated.

Yes true, but Grand King gets free packs from Guild master, AA cards and also those cards are mainly Set 1. Think I will prob just go double Pro tier as 6+ packs a week for life for free seems good and (hopefully) I can trade my way into some of the Dungeon stuff I need which is totally a secondary objective anyway. Just what to do with the EBK now hmm.

I am glad for the people with the disposable income to drop a mortgage payment on a yet to be released CCG even if I am unwilling to go there. These are guys (and gals) who are real enthusiasts and helped jump start this game towards the finish lines.

In 4 more days the slight grumbling from some people about what they did or didn't get will come to a close and we can move forward to more general excitement about the game developing!

@mainstager: Happy for you :) If I had time I'd try to snipe but I doubt I'll be able to, which is why I wanted to lock in Primal now. It's actually not a smart move for me financially, but I'm very confident that all of us early backers will not only be rewarded for our initial investment, but more importantly with a game that will last a very long time. The justification to myself is: if Hex explodes, this can be the only game I'll ever want to play for a while. And with lifetime perks, that's good enough for me. The initial investment will seem like a drop in the bucket as the years go by. Of course, you could ask me how I'm doing in a couple months to see if I'm singing the same tune :P

I suppose it's at least good to know there's some leeway in locking in a pledge, then. XD Two people snagged the same "one remaining" slot.

I wish I'd just kept my grand king from before. Should have just figured that, on the slim chance my finances DID end up allowing for it, I should keep the slot. Now I'm stuck trying to snipe back to something I already had.

Wow, you must have a lot of free time. ^^;

Two drafts per week is already ~6 hours worth of time of PvP only. There's still PvE content and other stuff to do (in-game and IRL).

I would've done something similar but couldn't figure out how I'd have the time hence only the additional GK for me (just enough to get a full play-set of exclusive cards and four Gardens too).

Primary reason for multiple pledging is so that I can multibox. I messaged CZE to ask if multiboxing is allowed and they said yes so long as the payment details for each account are unique. With a Producer sandbox, it would be fun to create 3 decks that are synergistic with each other and try to solo raid bosses with 3 accounts.

I am considering dropping the 2 Pro Players and getting 1 GK instead because I think I may not always be able to run 4 drafts a week. 3 is very feasible though. And a 3rd GK will help me more with my multiboxing attempts (3x Raid Leader perks)

I'm not sleeping until it pings me again. :mad:

I'm telling you man, I was in your shoes 2 days ago. It sucks. When I got it, I was F5'ing on my desktop and auto refreshing on my laptop. The desktop refresh caught it a whole second before the auto made any sound, and by the time the ping went off, I was already confirming the reward.

You have 2-3 seconds. Good luck to you.

One of the more annoying parts to try and snag it... you're more likely to have the time to snag it during the quiet hours because some of the other snipers are asleep... but by the same token, it's far less likely that one will open uup, because the people that HAVE them are asleep. Ugh.

It's impossible to snag a PP or GK at the time with all those snipers out there :( As soon as one opens up, it immediately goes to minus 1 or 2 tiers... I'm not giving up though, but I reckon chances are getting slim, so might as well get my mindset right (DC or Collector, what shall it be then) :)

I'm a late-comer to Hex, but already smitten: I like to dream up TCGs/LCGs ("design" would be too generous a word!), and was delighted to see someone out there had the same notions + tons more wilder ones ++ was actually making such a game for real! :cool:

I was settled on King until, ooh - 30 minutes ago!

Just finished upgrading to Dungeon Crawler for the permanent PvE loot buff & nifty lion vs dragon sleeve - tipping point was forum-goers highlighting the 156 extra draft packs in the stretch goals.
(They should consider making that more prominent!)

Was tempted by Guild Master for the PvE XP, plus the card bundles in case my brother takes an interest - but just not quite as compelling as loot, and while I wouldn't want to lead a guild I may want to join someone else's.

Yeah, my bad. I was just recently reminded of an Update a while back that stated as such. It hasn't been updated in the Reward Tier images though.


Plus One

Question: The 660K tier reward gave us +1 to PVE cards. Can that include PVP cards as well?

That makes sense. Yes, enjoy!

Question: Can the +1 Reward at the 660K tier apply to The Collector Tier yearly exclusive alternate art PVP cards?

That makes sense. Yes, enjoy!

So, the 660K +1 tier reward now also includes Kickstarter exclusive PVP rewards and the Collector yearly alternate art PVP cards. I'll update the respective tier images soon to reflect that, as well add both the Dragon's Blood starter deck and the Cardboard Tube Samurai to the Champion tier list which are currently missing.

I'm not gonna lie: I was starting to waver with my GK pledge over the past few days. $500 is a lot of money to put out for a game. But the more I thought about it, the GK is a massive value, and will be well worth it. Not counting all of the exclusive cards that only backers will get, there is over $1000 of product included in that tier, and that is only calculating a year worth of the free drafts.

This game definitely seems like it will be something special. There is a lot of excitement, and I want to be a part of that, and have my one free draft a week. So, once again, Grand King is the tier for me.

In short: Grand King + Collector + King + Knight

In long:

I've mostly been lurking; I was Grand King fairly early. Hex hit all the sharp pokey parts of my addictive personality, and so yeah, that. I went GK mostly because I just could not decide which part of the game (PVP, PVE, drafting, constructed, dungeons, raids, collecting shinies, what...) I'd like most.

I seriously considered Dragon Lord and sort of regret not getting it in time, but I don't have the patience for sniping. Collectors was an easy addition a week ago, I decided I really wanted 4 of all the exclusives. Now, I'm not sure if I'm going to merge it into my GK or if I'll leave it as a separate account and just ship the cards over-- (I'm not sure if they'll /let/ me keep it as a separate account).

The King and Knight are for friends; well, the Knight is for sure. The King-friend may not actually like the game and if he ends up not, he'll just send me all the cards and close it down.

I decided early on that I wasn't interested in Primal+, because it seems it would ruin the fun of doing dungeons for me: I /want/ to go get those cards! I want to enjoy the PVE-verse.

Anyways!

If this is true I'm tempted to get another king (none of the $250 ones really appeal to me). Will everything stack? The one thing that seems like it may not is the 3 month VIP access-does anyone know for sure if this will or will not stack? Anything else I may have missed that won't stack?

You can get two tiers and merge them together. If you got 2 Kings and merged them for exmaple, you'd get 300ish boosters, 4 of each Kickstarter Exclusive PvE card, 2 Spectral Lotus Gardens. With the VIP, it'll become 6-months VIP :)

First, I got DC. Then I got RL, and struggled with the decision to merge (and lose the free year of draft), or keep separate (and have an inconvenient PvE life of frequently swapping decks, as the account I would use would depend on the content I'm doing). I decided I also want the yearly AA cards, so I decided to tack on a Collector too (a full playset of Gardens is also nice), and now the merging decision has been made a bit easier. Losing only 1/3 of my yearly drafts has a nicer ring to it than losing half my yearly drafts.

Pretty happy with the three, though obviously I wish I had gotten in early enough for GK + Collector. >.< Still, I should have massive trading power out of the gate with 7 of the KS exclusive cards, meaning 3 of each I can comfortably trade (as I'll still have playsets after that).

Getting another king is very tempting, but then why not two more? Why not three? Where will it end?? ;)

One thing I'm wondering about, and this may be slightly off topic but could impact peoples' decisions, is how much unopened boosters may be worth in a couple of years if the game is a pretty big success. Will they go up in value as new sets come out? Down? Do we not have enough information to tell for sure? I'm not sure how many booster packs I really need but the extra value is hard for me to pass up. If I knew for sure or could be reasonably sure that I could sell them for a decent amount or trade them for other boosters from later sets I'd be more likely to get another king or two. I know no one can say for certain but what do people think?

I apologize if this has been discussed to death elsewhere, I've just come across this pretty amazing looking game and am pretty excited about the possibilities.

King is pretty damn sexy. If you can afford it, I think you should get it. $120 for a game isn't the worst thing in the world, and if you think about what non-KS's would have to pay for the content you're going to get as a reward, it even pays for itself.

TheDiv

It's hard to tell with a digital TCG. With physical TCGs, sets eventually go out of print and the boosters from that set tend to go up over time. With digital, there is no cost to the developers to keep selling old sets as its just pixels :P

I think they will stop printing sets though so I do believe the value of set 1 boosters will go up eventually (3+ years) so I am keeping around 25 to 50 unopened just to see what happens. It's all speculation though, as you said, we just don't have enough information.

Set 1 is hard to judge. You'd think an unopened booster would go up in price due to no more supply (if they do indeed stop selling out-of-rotation boosters), but it's hard to say by how much, because there will be a lot of set 1 product in people's collections.

A lot of people say this, but I expect most of the boosters to be used up by the time Set 2 comes around, except for the ones that people are holding on to for speculation purposes, and for the ones that people are holding on to specifically to draft with when Sets 2 and 3 come out.

For the people that find they love to draft, they'll be drafting a lot and they'll be getting the packs from those that don't. At the $250 level you only get 50+ drafts worth of packs. At GM and higher you get 80+ drafts. People at lower levels won't even have that much, and then you have to count all the new people that come to the game after the kickstarter is over.

(I have no idea how many times my brother has drafted the past couple days in MTGO, but I imagine he'd burn through 150 packs pretty quickly.)

As I understand it, you cannot hold onto your set 1 boosters or drafts until set 2 or 3 comes out and get the later sets. That is to say you cannot convert set 1 boosters into set 2 or 3 and as far as the drafts go I don't think you can horde them. Could be wrong but that is what I've gathered so far.

The reason why something like alpha boosters from Magic sell for bucketloads is because there are highly sought after cards in that set, and they were never in 'huge' supply. Set 1 from Hex, on the other hand, people will probably have bucketloads of those cards across every player, so I don't think the boosters will get nearly as high as something like set 3 after a few years would be.

I've finally stopped acquiring tiers. Closing total now is GK, PP, Collector and 3x King. I'll leave it to the rest of you to get us to $2.5m!

Sure, initially Hex will be flooded with Set 1 cards, thereby reducing the overall value of set 1 cards. However, as the game progress, more and more players enter the game, value will start rising as cards begin to circulate and reach a seemingly "scarce" position. Like you said, the overall value of set 3 will generally be higher than set 1 due to the fact that set 3 will not suffer the same flooding as set 1.

oh and this is based on the assumption that base players will actually increase. At this point in time, we don't have this information. So if Hex turns out to be a flop, value of cards will continue to plummet.

Good effort. So tempted to convert my $100~ worth of coins in my cupboard to grab another King!

As I understand it, you cannot hold onto your set 1 boosters or drafts until set 2 or 3 comes out and get the later sets. That is to say you cannot convert set 1 boosters into set 2 or 3 and as far as the drafts go I don't think you can horde them. Could be wrong but that is what I've gathered so far.

I've just been reading the stickied question and answer thread and its specifically stated that you can do this. So unless something has changed since that answer was given I believe we can save our boosters as long as we want and trade them at anytime.

You'll need Set 1 boosters for draft even when set 2 and 3 come out, they are the same block. So with just Set 1 released all drafts will be 3x S1 boosters but when set 2 comes out drafts will either be 2x S2 and 1x S1 or 2x S1 and 1x S2. When Set 3 is released drafts will be 1x S1, 1x S2, 1x S3.

The when Set 4 is released it will start again with 3x S4 boosters.

You can hold onto them, but they will always be set 1 boosters.

It's hard to tell with a digital TCG. With physical TCGs, sets eventually go out of print and the boosters from that set tend to go up over time. With digital, there is no cost to the developers to keep selling old sets as its just pixels :P

I think they will stop printing sets though so I do believe the value of set 1 boosters will go up eventually (3+ years) so I am keeping around 25 to 50 unopened just to see what happens. It's all speculation though, as you said, we just don't have enough information.

I was thinking of doing the same thing in regard to hoarding boosters although I'm worried I won't have the discipline to do this. Getting an extra king tier or two would make it much easier I just feel a bit insane spending this amount on a game I learned about hours ago (the timing was perfect though-I haven't played any trading card games for a very long time mostly because my friends weren't into them but seeing my friend's little brother's magic cards yesterday and spending a good bit of today looking for a distributor for magic cards for my comic store had me primed-right when I got off the p;hone with the distributor I saw an email from a friend leading to the kickstarter-fate! Fortunately I fought off the initial urge to get the producer tier).

I guess there are just too many variables (chief among them the popularity of the game and amount of new people joining over the next couple of years as well as the length of time set 1 is sold for) to really judge the value of set 1 booster packs in the future but its fun to speculate. In general the more you believe in the game the more highly you should probably estimate their future vakue and the more boosters you should initially buy.

I wish I had discovered this game a week or so ago so I ad more time to make reasoned purchasing decisions.

BTW, in regards to my initial question about things stacking when buying multiple tiers, if I buy another king tier do I get another beta invitation I can give to someone else? Or could I donate $10 and get a beta invite for friends I didn't have time to tell about the kickstarter?

Sure but you could potentially trade them with other players for later boosters, right?

Now it's 2x GK and 1 Pro :)
