Subject: Two new survivors as part of the Wrath of Kings KS rss

Your Tags: Add tags
Popular Tags: [View All]
CMoN really nows how to make me angry. The shipping was a good start, now they added two new survivors as add ons to their Wrath of Kings campaign, but you can only buy them when you get at least one faction starter and $50 add ons.
I am already pledging for WoK, but if they continue on this road, I will prfer to stay away from CMoN's KS. yuk
Anyway, I thought you should know, if anyone is interested in these two guys.

EDIT: I misread the CMoN statement, it is not a faction starter AND $50 add ons but a faction starter OR $50 add ons. But as CMoN conceded in the meantime, Zombicide backers can now get those survivors for $10 each plus handling charge (depending ouf your location).

CMoN just conceded:

Now Zombicide backers can get those survivors without spending $50 for a game they don't want.

I'd glady throw in a $20 pledge for these, but no way am I pledging another $50 on a game I dont' want just for the rights to do so. Waht a crappy way to nickel and dime us Zombicide fans.

We posted at the same time Dagda (I posted over in the regular Zombicide General forum)! Glad that they've had the sense to back down but I seriously question who is running things at CMON/GG and where their common sense is. Asking people to back a whole other project just to get promos that don't even fit the cross over was just plain dumb. How did they not foresee the backlash?!

Hmm, so $30 for the 2 figs + shipping. I will have to mull this over now as I determine if I want to shift around some other purchases to nab these guys.

As I just posted, you don't have to buy Wrath of Kings anymore.

As a Zombicide backer you can get them for $10 each plus $10 handling charge.

CMoN (you can find it following the link I posted above):
We've done these cross overs before (SDE for Relic Knights), but we hear you. For Zombicide 1 and Zombicide 2 backers ONLY, just add a $10 handling fee and you can pick up as many of Elena and Charles as you want without picking up Wrath models. You'll need to use the same email address as the Z1 or Z2 Kickstarters for the pledge manager so we can link your accounts.

Be fair. It was faction starter OR $50.

And why use these figs when I already have plenty of orcs and sword girls?

Oh lord, ebay is going to be flooded with these guys from all the speculators buying dozens of copies.

I had to post here, as I am still angry about their shipping.

And I am glad about the backlash. I only wish their obscuring statements about shipping had caused the same reaction in the community. I am a little bit fed up by this "every KS is late, so who cares" mentality. It seems everyone can get the game before the people who payed in advance get it.

Anyway, I am glad that everyone gets the chance to get those survivors now, even though my plans to get them five times each to make a big buck went down the drain by it.

The SDE/Relic Knights made far more sense than this one though! As did the Kingdom Death in Wrath of Kings as themetically they're pretty similar. Just a note that according to GG's latest comments on FB you need to add $15 handling if you're outside of the USA.

This just stinks of a cash grab to try and bolster the WoK numbers.
No thanks.

CMoN have balls of solid brass. All respect to them for becoming a cash grabbing, consumer milking miniature company in faster time it took a certain other to lose their morals. Frankly I don't expect a company to be run by kindly woodland creatures but all these crossovers and cash grabs are taking the Mickey.

I will pass on this and probably any future CMoN affiliated Kickstarters from what I have seen so far on how they run things.

They certainly seem to have dropped the ball recently. They are trying to just to do much and it's resulted in their KS missing shipping dates or completely messing up the shipping and then they try to do a cash grab like this which is a poor crossover because they don't fit the universes. I don't really like them but fortunately the completionist was beaten out of me during the S2 KS and the sheer number of promo survivor options that are now available.

Well, I did end up pledging for these after they dropped the ridiculous $50 requirement. Worth it? Probably not, but I'm a sucker.

$35 for 4 minis is pretty high compared to the price of the other exclusives in the game. Why do they have to charge extra shipping since it would be sent out with the last batch?? I'd rather print out the character sheets and use those reaper miniatures as stand ins.

My buddy's Zcide Season 2 pledge suddenly went from 1 / 1.5 / 2 to 1 / 2, which would seem to suggest the quiet delay that's been happening as we wait for "just the base games" to ship has been the missing container being located and the promos from shipment 1.5 merged back into shipment 1 to save CMON all those shipping dollars.

We're tidying the house and I've been temped to put my entire Zcide collection up on Ebay. Basically, all three games, all promo minis. Their recent behavior is not convincing me to hold onto the games . . .
