Slacker backer is a good deal!

hi,

i have a question.
Buying the slacker backer you get: 1x Starter Pack ($10)
25 Boosters ($2)
2 months of Vip ($4)
+ 2 Promo Cards
thats what it states on the HP.

However you could buy a Vip for $4 and buy 25 Boosters for $1.

Concerning "standard" cards this makes the slacker backer option more expensive.
Of course you get 2 promo cards and access to alpha an beta.
so essentially is the $25 worth it to get into alpha and beta?
I do not feel any regret buying it, however i was of the impression that i bought a financialy attractive bundle. which is not the case, it is more a "fan- bundle" where you pay a premium price concerning boosters.

2 months of VIP purchased is $8, 25 boosters is $50 ($2 apiece) a starter is $10. You're buying all that for $50, and getting some exclusive goodies to go with it. Definitely worth it. Also, the Starter deck is in addition to the one you get from signing up.

i know, i just wanted to point out that if you dont buy it, you get the same for $43 :)
(2 x Vip for $8 1 starter for $10 and 25 Boosters for $25)

So bundle = $50 normal = $43

The boosters are $2 apiece. Not $1. Meaning normal = $68, bundle = $50.

VIP program is 1 booster/week free. Doesn't discount boosters.

VIP costs $4 a month, and for that you get a free booster a week (so you're 'buying' them for just under $1). You don't actually buy as many as you want.

of course, there's also the whole alpha and beta access thing.
Getting early access, is a really nice perk.

I would say go grab it; its a better deal than any other you will be having come Alpha, and we don't know for how much time it will yet be available

Well of course you could get 25 boosters for $25 as a VIP.. just it would take six months to do it. ;)

VIP is great, not only for the cheap boosters , but for the 'goldfish' feature, that allows you to test your deck's initial draws and a few draws after that. In addition to what the offer says you will be getting as a slacker backer, there is a also a digital artbook and 2 exclusive pve cards, not listed at their site (haven't updated it yet it seems)

I'd pay $50 just to get early access... the deal on the cards is just gravy :p

Is it worth getting if you have Knight tier?
Knight tier does not have the VIP so that's $8
25 boosters = $50
extra promo cards to trade
looks like you're really only saving 8 quid

These should have amazing trading power if the game becomes popular.

i think it worth it if your interested in the game, also their lot really nice players from kickstater, so join a guild after the game live.

am sure they will be more then willing make sure you have a good time, an not feel left behind. even if you don't meet any of them, their should be a flood of cards on release, to help get into the game at a low cost.
