    I'll try and get the Kraken Tier. I would like to go higher, but the 150$ is hard enough as im unemployed. Can't wait to follow the progress in 2016.

    Am very excited for the whole project. Have already started spreading the word and will do so more once launched.

    What is your intended target?

    Thanks for sharing, even though u talked about some exclusive things already I would like to see some more possibilities here.

    1) There should be more steps between 20 and 500$ , many people would probably like to spend some more money to support the project, but the options are really limited here.
    2) Comparing this to other kickstarter campaigns I think the number of different awards is way too low here. Seen projects with 30 or more things, where people had more options and could adjudicate way more. Awards don't need to build up on each other. So there could be other 150$ options with the aqua rewards for example so you can decide on what especially you want.
    3) You get a beta key for 20$, how about giving away more than one key for more money?

    Aaaaaaaaah! Hype!! I'm so excited with these AWESOME kickstarter awards!

    I'll probably only be able to do Zeus tier, but money's pretty tight, so not even that. Hopefully I can, really want that early user registration :D
    AGHH, I really like the Maccabeus award. Custom name and such in-game would be awesome. Is there anyway we can have this WITHOUT paying 2k!?
    Edit:
    Hearing about a game shop setup sometime in the future would be WONDERFUL! I also really like a lot of the art concept ideas for LTD2 and think they could portray into shirts and other stuff like coffee mugs or something.


    Personally, I would totally buy a kraken coffee mug. But that might just be me and my crippling coffee addiction. :p
    I'm thinking about this too. I honestly would like to buy a art book/soundtrack, but I don't think I could pay 150$ on LTD2 right now as much as I want too, haha.
    Yes, yes, yes!!
    Well, and uh, my grummy old mousepad does need a replacement. I've had it for like.. 10 years or more. Somethin' like that.

    I've given some ideas to the team a while back and agree with some of what you say.

    There should be a few more steps in between 20-500. Be it in game currency, multiple keys to share with friends, physical products...etc.
    You don't want a MASSIVE amount. For games especially given people too much choice can sometimes cause some issues.

    Early Bird rewards - Even if it is $2 off - are a great way to get backers fast.




    Are you intending on having a game currency? (so items can be won in game as well as bought with cash) - Similar to Heroes of Newerth set up for those that have played that.
    Any plans for stretch rewards?
    Any plans for a referral scheme? Or linking certain unlocks / rewards to Facebook / forums...etc?
    Will the physical art books be purchasable afterwards or limited edition?

    I would love to buy one of those mouse pads without dropping $500.

    Thanks for the feedback so far, everyone. It's useful to know which things you find valuable, as these tiers are still subject to being tweaked as we mentioned. We're trying to strike a good balance between flexibility, and meaningful choices.

    A few points:
    - Can't reveal the intended target yet.
    - Multiple keys such as a ("3-pack of beta keys") to share with friends is a good thought, and we're considering it. However, Kickstarter campaigns thrive on not only total $ raised, but also the total number of backers. Having a 3-pack of beta keys might reduce the second number. That said, it might incentivize people to tell their friends about Legion, too. We're still crunching the numbers on this.
    - Physical rewards, such as mousepads, are great, but we have to keep in mind that for a studio like AutoAttack Games, we don't have the facilities to efficiently produce and ship things in bulk. Thus, if we were to make mousepads available for, say, $20, only about $5 of that would actually go towards developing the game. Hence our decision to make physical rewards available only at higher tiers, and having them signed and exclusive.
    - We're planning to release other mousepads (and shirts, posters, etc.) available for sale in the future, once we've partnered up with a manufacturer. Can't say exactly when, but definitely after the fundraiser.

    We'll try to release more information leading up to the KS launch.

    Thanks for taking the time to read them!
    I'm glad to hear that in the future there will be a plan for the merchandise. I know what you're trying to aim for, placing them up so high. I was just hoping that eventually they'll be released as in a store or something. Very cool news! :D

    Also, what about that custom name reward? Think you could uh.. "tweak" that too?
    ( joking intended )
