I figured I'd just get this one out of the way.

- You probably won't get an early bird
- You didn't get screwed out of your early bird
- You don't deserve an early bird
- Yes, I know you got a message saying your EB pledge was processing. You still didn't get it.
- No, CMoN will not retroactively give you an early bird when you email them with a screen shot of the previously mentioned Kickstarter message.
- Yes, I hate early birds too
- CMoN is the most successful board game Kickstarter of all time. They won't change their model.
- Yes, I think you're an idiot if you refuse to back this simply because of early birds

Please feel free to copy/paste from this thread on Monday when AQ:I funds in under 2 minutes, the EBs disappear in seconds, and Kickstarter almost crashes.

Did I miss any?

The one I've been getting REAL tired of (though not really related)

No, the exclusive characters from the first KS will not be included in this or any other KS. And PS- you arnt having any revolutionary thoughts by saying that they shouldn't have them anymore. And yes, it just comes acrossed as entitled. Sorry. Just drop the $400 on eBay or drop the subject entierly.

But seriously, people refuse to back a campaign over not getting $20 (or whatever) knocked off for an EB? This will be my first KS and I know better than that

I don't know about funding in 2 min but I bet it takes less than 2 hours

What I'm really looking forward to is seeing that new small expansion that is clearly gonna drop. But mostly because there is absolutely nothing rumored on it at all anywhere

they do very well but exploding kittens took in double ($8.7mil) what zombicide black plague took in ($4.0 mil).

Exactly. It is way much harder for a card game to get such a huge funding. You can't really compare them. It'd make CmoN look bad.

Edit for typos.

Well, the point is: CMoN does it again and again. I would think they are way more successful!

That card game got all that due to world wide stupidity.

Actually, it is more like: You can't compare a game to a beloved online comic's memorabilia.

Exploding Kittens is barely a game and would not have done well at all had it not been from The Oatmeal.

He said CMoN, not Zombicide, so I'm assuming he meant in the aggregate.

You seem to be missing the other three Zombicide kick starters as well as the first AQ, SMOG, Dogs of War, Rivet Wars, Blood Rage, The Others, Xenoshyft, and more.

You can substitute "EB" with "Exclusives" and hopefully that will end the inevitable discussion on that


(yeah right)

Good point, we should start a different thread for that one

Anyway, to get this one back on track, I'll amend the statement that led everyone down the rabbit hole... shake

- CMoN has been very successful with Kickstarter and they will not change their business model. And you still don't get an early bird.

Believe it or not, the early bird is actually $10. Yes, people go crazy when they can't save $10 on a $100 pledge.

Personally I don't even like the 'early bird' thing in the first place, particularly with the tiny number method that CMON does it. And I've never complained anyway. But just as a data point: we ended up having 9 copies of Black Plague in our group's pledge. That 10 bucks could have add up if we had been lucky enough to end up on the right side of the heap two hours later when the kickstarter servers finally got their shit back together.

Anytime. I am a pillar of community. I trust you won't take the 10 dollars you save and spend it in one place. Save a puppy, buy a cheeseburger. The future is yours.
Will do. Whatever it takes to make a pillar of community proud.

I just got my "confirmation", say inside 15 seconds of the page opening. I decided to fap F5 just to depress keeops5000. Let's see if I win the lottery :D Share your stories, peeps!

Edit: Oooh! I got one! I was inside the first 200 pledges I think, if that is a measurement to go by. I also feel that KS has beefed up their servers.

Looks like more EBs went out than intended. When I reloaded it was 1278 of 1332.

But, KS is reporting 1511 EBs, so it looks like there are about 200 extras.

I saw this happen with The Others as well. The downside is that as people drop EBs no slots open until it gets below 1332.

Got my EB. Couldn't have done it without you. Thanks for the bottom... of my heart.

This time was my turn to get the bad luck lottery ticket. My pledge is caught in processing. I wonder if it will take weeks for Kickstarter to sort out (that happened to a few people on the Others).
