“Games give you a chance to excel, and if you're playing in good company you don't even mind if you lose because you had the enjoyment of the company during the course of the game.” ― Gary Gygax
Will there be early bird offers in this kickstarter. In Conan there were 10$ discount for first 700 people. In this kickstarter I hope they won't give any early birds, because it's not fun, when they all go in first 5 minutes for the mighty f5 pressers. If they make EB, please make them timed, so f.ex. first day or hour is cheaper. Then it's more fair for everyone.
Am I the only one who hates early birds in games that will get full in first minutes? It does not encourage other people to buy the game,when some people get it cheaper just because they had luck with the timing. I understand EB when there isn't that many people already waiting to buy the game. But this KS is definetly not one of those.
It doesn't really bother me. Especially if it is $10 relative to a $300 game package.
If I want to buy game X, and it goes on sale for $5-10 less than the regular price at my favorite OLGS, there is a good chance that it will sell out, especially if it is a popular/hot title.
Just because I know people got the game for less than I will be paying does not mean that I will be put off from buying the game when it comes back in stock.
I wouldn't own very many games if I did.
I see little difference between that scenario and this one.
Edit: Went ahead and quoted the OP and wanted to add that if I had a choice between one early bird or the other, of course I would want the "timed" kind. Who doesn't like saving money.
