Just dropped my pledge by $250 because I will not be home and do not want to risk pledging $500 without getting a GK (was running script to try to get GK).

I imagine many people will also be dropping their pledges once they realize GK is no longer available.

What do you mean when they realise GK is no longer available, it's been gone for a while now hasn't it and honestly i seriously doubt a few people dropping their pledge is going to be the deciding factor on whether or not we reach 2.5 mil unless of course their the 10k pledgers

he probably means that people already have 500$ pledged for bot sniping, who'll drop that once they realize they cant get that slot and only pledge their actual tier value.

But i doubt it will be that many

A fair few may multi-pledge for the maximum value. I doubt it will change much.

Indeed that's why he means. Anyone using the script to snipe tiers had to set their pledge to the appropriate amount. So the KS will probably lose a couple thousand as they lower the pledge amount to the tier they decided on (or pull out completely)

Don't forget the $50 slacker backer option, I could see it filling whatever gap there is over the summer.

I think many of us are so used to the staggering amount of product we get for Kickstarter backing that its hard to imagine there will be people who look at the slacker backer option and think "what a great deal!"... I mean, more power to them and I hope it sells like gangbusters.

We just need time to come down off the Kickstarter high and get settled in with the larger community as it develops... so try not to gloat moving forward! :)

If we come short of 250 Dollar to reach the stretch goal I will hand out some forks and torches so we can hunt the OP down! ;)

Are they streaming on Twitch at all today to try and boost last minute pledges?

At 10:30 am PDT they are. That's in about 3 and a half hours.

Never participated kickstarter before and yes. despite its the first time, I went for $500... Anyways, is it official that slacker backer count towards the goal or is it just standard practice of Kickstarter project?

Guess it'll be CZE's decision :) Depending on the final rush though, we might be able to reach that last stretch goal! With current paypal figures included, we're currently at about 2.4m and about 65k pledged today. Best day in this campaign was 150k (yesterday), so leeeeeets geeeeeeeeeew

Looking at how much money has come in so far today? I'd be really surprised if we DON'T hit 2.5 million. I'm on the fence for committing another $250 to this on top of my previous $500, and I'm probably not the only one. I just don't want to take away a Collector from someone else so I'm watching how many are available.

I'm debating buying another King, just because I feel like I can resell it to someone else who found out about the game too late after the KS is over, but I bet there's literally hundreds of people thinking the same thing.

Fair guess. :)

Remember that most kickstarter has a spike at the end of the kickstarter. It might be a bit lower in this one because of all the "value" tiers already being sold out.

We are actually getting pretty close now.

Well we would be well inside the spike if it were happening and its not showing itself yet.

One thing to consider is that there will likely be a large kickstarter bump today as people finalize their plans for taking multiple tiers. Kickstarter is probably over 200,000 by now. Look at how many people have been coming forth saying they have done 2 collector tiers or some other combination of $250 tiers.

i wonder why everyone says we wont reach it.. do you consider T-shirt sales and Lazy backer? cause they said it would all count. There is no human way we dont reach it. Plus Kickstarters start strong and end Strong

They need LESS than $100k, and there's a little under 2 hours left!
