Reward Tiers Part 2

EDIT: A finalized matrix of the reward tiers can be found here!

 

Folks,

Here’s Part 2 of our pledge tiers. Today’s tiers start from $350 and stop just before the $1000+ tiers. This group includes the first physical tiers and lots of new items.

Mark

 

$350 Limit 2500 HERO FOREVER - DIGITAL ONLY
The BACKER RECEIVES all the HERO rewards + a FOUNDER’S STATUE to place outside the backer’s house + FOUNDER’S HOUSING ITEMS + THESE UPGRADES: AN ADDITIONAL 50 FOUNDER’S POINTS (100 total) + THREE-YEAR SUBSCRIPTION (known elsewhere as a “lifetime” subscription) that is renewable, after three years, for $1 per year (as per Kickstarter policy) + PLATINUM FORUM BADGE + ALPHA ACCESS + BETA INVITES UPGRADED TO 3 AND TOTAL NUMBER OF CHARACTER SLOTS AT LAUNCH UPGRADED BY 3. You also receive an EXTRA DIGITAL COPY OF THE GAME (redeemable at the WARRIOR level benefits only). Estimated delivery of Alpha Access: August 2014.

MJ Notes: This tier has a 2nd digital copy of the game included with the pledge. That copy can be redeemed for Warrior level of perks. Think of his as a modified two for one tier but with the main account getting the superior benefits. This will always be the case unless specified within the pledge text.

$450 Limit 500 PHYSICAL PHAT LEWT FOREVER – PHYSICAL REWARDS
With this very limited tier, the BACKER RECEIVES all the PHYSICAL PHAT LEWT rewards + FOUNDER’S HOUSING ITEMS + THESE UPGRADES: AN ADDITIONAL 15 FOUNDER’S POINTS (75 total) + THREE-YEAR SUBSCRIPTION (known elsewhere as a “lifetime” subscription) that is renewable, after three years, for $1 per year (as per Kickstarter policy) + BETA INVITES UPGRADED TO 4 AND TOTAL NUMBER OF CHARACTER SLOTS AT LAUNCH UPGRADED BY 4. In addition, you receive an EXTRA DIGITAL COPY OF THE GAME (this copy can be redeemed at the WARRIOR level benefits only). Estimated delivery of Alpha Access: August 2014.

MJ Notes: Not a lot to say about this tier other than it is the Phat Lewt physical tier that also comes with the three-year renewable subscription as some people have asked me to include.

$450 Limit 250 SIGN RIGHT HERE - PHYSICAL REWARDS
With this non-repeatable, limited tier the BACKER RECEIVES all the PHYSICAL PHAT LEWT rewards + THESE UPGRADES: AN ADDITIONAL 15 FOUNDER’S POINTS (75 total) + a TOTAL OF 12 MONTHS SUBSCRIPTION TIME (renewable at the regular rate) + FOUNDER’S DISCOUNT OF NO LESS THAN 10% PER MONTH. In addition, you receive FOUNDER’S HOUSING ITEMS + a MINIATURE OF THE CAMELOT UNCHAINED race of your choice + a CAMELOT UNCHAINED POSTER signed by the team + a CLOTH MAP SIGNED BY MARK JACOBS. Estimated delivery of Alpha Access: August 2014.

MJ Notes: This is one of my favorite tiers as it has some new items added to the mix. The signed map and poster have been a highly requested item from players and with all the other stuff thrown in, it’s a pretty full tier.

$500 Limit 2000 THE WHOLE SCHMEAR - DIGITAL ONLY
With this tier, the BACKER RECEIVES the HERO FOREVER rewards + THESE UPGRADES: AN ADDITIONAL 60 FOUNDER’S POINTS (160 total) + BETA INVITES UPGRADED TO 4 AND TOTAL NUMBER OF CHARACTER SLOTS UPGRADED AT LAUNCH BY 4. You also receive FOUNDER’S HOUSING ITEMS + STATUE IN FOUNDER’S ROW + ALL FUTURE CAMELOT UNCHAINED EXPANSION PACKS FOR FREE + AN EXTRA DIGITAL COPY OF THE GAME (total of 2 extra copies) which can be redeemed at the WARRIOR level benefits only. Estimated delivery of Alpha Access: August 2014.

MJ Notes: This early adopter tier is the first one that adds free expansion packs for Camelot Unchained to the purchaser. Between that and all the rewards from the Hero Forever tier, it’s another full tier. I also increased the number of “early adopter” units based on feedback I’ve gotten.

$550 Limit 3000 THE WHOLE SCHMEAR II - DIGITAL ONLY
With this tier the BACKER RECEIVES all the HERO FOREVER rewards + THESE UPGRADES: AN ADDITIONAL 50 FOUNDER’S POINTS (150 total) + BETA INVITES UPGRADED TO 4 AND TOTAL NUMBER OF CHARACTER SLOTS UPGRADED AT LAUNCH BY 4. You also receive FOUNDER’S HOUSING ITEMS + STATUE IN FOUNDER’S ROW + ALL FUTURE CAMELOT UNCHAINED EXPANSION PACKS FOR FREE + AN EXTRA DIGITAL COPY OF THE GAME (total of 2 extra copies) which can be redeemed at the WARRIOR level benefits only. Estimated delivery of Alpha Access: August 2014.

MJ Notes: MJ Notes: Like most of the early adopter pairs, this was the model for the tier which I then upgraded for early adopters.

$600 No max GUILD OF THE VEIL - DIGITAL ONLY
Our first guild-oriented tier receives all the WARRIOR rewards for you and 9 of your friends + RESERVED NAMING RIGHTS for your guild (unless the guild’s name is trademarked/copyright by someone else) + 300 TOTAL FOUNDER’S POINTS to be split between guild-mates (as determined solely by the owner of this pledge) + an ADDITIONAL 1 MONTH OF SUBSCRIPTION TIME (3 months total) for each copy (non-transferable) and each copy of the game Founder’s Discount is upgraded to 2% (only for owners of the 10 original copies; other guild members will not receive the discount) + FORUM BADGE UPGRADE TO SILVER + TOTAL NUMBER OF BETA INVITES UPGRADED TO 4 (PLEDGE OWNER ONLY) AND TOTAL NUMBER OF CHARACTER SLOTS UPGRADED AT LAUNCH BY 4 (ALL COPIES) and the GUILD’S BETA ACCESS IS UPGRADED TO BETA 1. Estimated delivery of Beta 1 Access: February 2015.

MJ Notes: This is the first of three guild tiers. I truly have no idea how popular these tiers will be but I thought it was worth a shot. This tier comes with 10 total copies of the game and all the copies come with the Warrior benefits. The bonus Founder’s Points can only be shared by the owner of the pledge but the perks that come with the Warrior tier cannot be diluted by the owner. It will be interesting to see how many of these are purchased.

$750 Limit 200 HANDILY DONE - PHYSICAL REWARDS
With this non-repeatable, limited tier, the BACKER RECEIVES all the SIGN RIGHT HERE rewards and THESE UPGRADES: AN ADDITIONAL 75 FOUNDER’S POINTS (150 total) + your SUBSCRIPTION IS EXTENDED TO 18 MONTHS (renewable at the regular rate) + FOUNDER’S DISCOUNT IS UPGRADED TO A MINIMUM OF 10% + INTERNAL TESTING ACCESS(with no requirement of participation but still subject to the NDA, owner only). In addition, the backer receives ALL FUTURE CAMELOT UNCHAINED EXPANSION PACKS FREE + 1 PHYSICAL COPY OF OUR “REJECTED ART BOOK” + 1 HAND-SIGNED PIECE OF CONCEPT ART, and 1 HAND-SIGNED UNIQUE PIECE OF CONCEPT ART. In addition, you receive an EXTRA DIGITAL COPY OF THE GAME (2 total) which can be redeemed at the WARRIOR level benefits only). Estimated delivery of Internal Testing Access: January 2014.

MJ Notes: This very limited tier has some new and cool stuff in it including the Rejected Art Book. Having the equivalent of outtakes for our art team makes it a bit more interesting than the standard art book. This tier also has some hand signed pieces of art as well as the IT access but with the testing requirement waived. My feeling on this was that if I didn’t give these tiers the earliest access to testing that would lead to disappointment and since this tier is very limited, it won’t have any impact on either our testing costs or expectations no matter whether people actually help us test during the IT access phase. On Friday we actually had the first test of some networked stuff that was quite fun and it will be in one of our update videos. I’m hoping that we will get some traction from all our IT testers since some of what we will be testing will be fun and not just the boring stuff.
