View Full Version : Multiple VIP Items Located In The Inventory - What Does This Mean?

Does anyone else have 2 VIP items in their inventory? This was the only real strange thing to me last night.

I wrote down what they said:

Gold VIP Item: Kickstarter Backer VIP Member. Good from 3/28/2015 to 10/3/2016. Your next VIP booster arrives 7/25/2015.
Silver VIP item: VIP Member. Good from 9/6/2014 to 8/26/2016. Your next VIP booster arrives on 7/26/2015.


The second one seems to be the one that is actually working. What does the first one mean? It certainly doesn't seem correct! Has this been explained somewhere?

Thanks!

It was always supposed to have been that way.

One is the VIP from KS which runs parallel to normal VIP.

In other words, you should have been receiving two packs a week and two VIP tickets per month.

Kami, wasn't the KS VIP just for 3 months though? I am certainly not receiving multiple boosters each week (which makes sense?). Also, once it is over, wouldn't it disappear from your inventory?

Confused in Hex Land,
Taleisin (HA!)

KS VIP is 3 months per eligible tier iirc. If you had four tiers merged, it would be 12 months.

If that's not the case, then I'm unsure what the case is. ^^;

Yup, only have a single tier. Strange indeed. Hopefully an explanation is forthcoming (and hopefully the Hex team actually slept some last night as well...).

The one labeled Kickstarter VIP appears to be for weekly drafts, my dc account drop time is dead on to my weekly draft and expires in december of this year (exactly at the end of the 6 month add on) and my pro account has an expiration date of 2082 or something of that nature (and the drop time is spot on to my weekly drafts). They are definitely not VIP because my KS ones have long since expired.

Aha! I believe that is the answer! I simply missed it due to the label. Thanks!

That explains mine... I have 2 silver and 2 gold, which would match up correctly with what codes I've activated to my account and why the gold one has a stupidly long timer on it lol. Love it.

HEX shutting down 5/12/2082 confirmed. And here I was hoping that heaven would be an eternity of HEX drafting. :)

OR maybe the world is ending in 2082, and they just don't want to give packs out after that, which only makes sense.

Derp. Just saw this thread after posting in the VIP FAQ thread once I deduced that the Gold VIP tokens do, indeed, seem to correspond to draft tickets. So chalk this up as more support for that theory.
