Literally have my computer running the script, auto-refreshing and set up so that it attemps to put my pledge in every single refresh.

Still missed it, although it seems like 6 people got in. I did happen to get into some weird kickstarter bug page so I can imagine that I was very very very close.

Even with script, auto-refreshing and auto-pledging I still can't get this stuff D: I'm also going to be at graduation tomorrow when the kickstarter stuff will end. I guess I will just have to get stuck with Raid Leader.

You could always get RL + Collector. Sure, you miss out on the DC/PP perks, and being able to give away 90 boosters, but you do get 5 of the exclusive cards instead of 3, so you'll have a little more trading power out of the gates. It's certainly no GK, but it's not terrible either.

The only way another $250 would be worth it for me would be for lifetime free weekly draft. I'm just shocked that auto-refreshing and auto-pledging wasn't enough even with using my desktop

There are probably 100s of ppl trying to snipe Pro and GK at the moment. Even with auto scripting your chances are low.

I think at that point it's your ISP and distance from kickstarter's server that matter

Pretty sure kickstarter's bandwidth costs will go up significantly this week.

script a dc might be easier then craft your way or trade your way to 1 free draft a week equivalent

IMO, If someone wanted to trade PP for DC, they would have done it a long time ago.

Man, I wish I had gotten in on that group of 6, would have released a PP back into the wild.

Always wondered why it goes to like (-5 out of 959) ...

Did one spot open up and 6 people get in?

I eventually see it go back to 0 out of 959, so I wonder what happens to 5 of the 6 people?

Wouldn't work, it would simply bring the pledge count closer to 0.

Yep, that's what happened. When it creeps back towards 0 available, that's people dropping pledges; no new spots are opened up until it's back to 1 of 9xx.

I disagree. I can imagine kickstarter servers are located somewhere in the US, and was able to grab one on my not too great internet connection in Belgium. It's all about luck imo, if your refresh is done at exactly the right time, no matter how fast you are able to refresh again, you're in!

I was pretty happy that my wife and I were among the -5 that just poped up. Now insteaad of 4 Collector 1 DC 1 RL we can just do 1 GK + 1 Collector each. Good luck to any in the last day who are trying to upgrade their pledge to support the longevity of the game.
