PATREON!!!!!!

All right, so a lot of people out there don't about that this game is being made, or have missed the boat on contributing to the project. So why not make a patreon account? That way anyone who wants to support the game but couldn't because they discovered this project too late could still support the game. We saw how the kickstarter exploded, just imagine what could happen with a patreon account. It could give the devs more money, they could put things on there that where part of the kickstarter, like more costume pieces, more specifications for classification or even the master classification for launch along with other things like more money for the marketing department which let's be honest is something this game needs. A patreon account could make this game even better!!!

The only downside to starting

The only downside to starting up another funding call so soon may be the media backlash of "They said they only needed X-money, why are they begging for more?" Before putting anything tangible out. If a patreon account were to be made, I would imagine it would need to be created in conjunction with either a large teaser of semi-polished game-play, or with the release of the standalone character creator. Integrating a donate button INTO the character creator may be the best way to actually go about that in all honesty.

Stalkers don't die: They simply... Disappear.

I'll admit, we've had enough

I'll admit, we've had enough people saying that they wished they could have that we've considered a "second chance" for them. But, Izzy is right, we want more things ready first.

Yeah I know, I never said we

Yeah I know, I never said we had to make account right now. Though I do think that this should be something to be done much later. Atleast after the character creator is finished.

It's a fine line. I totally

It's a fine line. I totally understand what you guys are doing and why you don't want to put "we need/want more money" out right now media-wise. BUT, people would like to contribute, and I know that funding is always a key factor in business--especially a start-up.

It seems to me that maybe a "hey, we've had people ask, so here's a place you can donate/contribute if you want" site wouldn't be bad press, but then I'm not a PR expert. I just know that any money you get right now will make the game stronger at launch.

FIGHT EVIL! (or go cause trouble so the Heroes have something to do.)

Although I am eagerly

Although I am eagerly awaiting this release, I think that any donations at this point would only come from the generosity of our hearts and would be counter productive. I am deffinately planning on having a sub and I know I will be using the cash shop at the vary least as well as any pre-release offers for pledging will probably get more of my money. I look at it as an investment into my happiness, but it is still an investment. Any investment advisor worth their salt will tell you slow and steady is the road to success. Careful planning and sound decision making are part of that road. Without an actual product, adding money into the pot, especially making a promise to deliver something additional in return would only push back the release and slow everything down. Right now MWM knows how much money they have to work with and they have a schedule laid out for production. Adding funds or making promises means they have to redo thier production schedule or the money remains on the backburner untill after release making the "donate now" button kind of a tease. Any company that has poor costomer service is bound to fail, replaced by a company with an inferior product, but more willing to take care of thier clients. Holding back on themselves and those who eagerly await allws them to keep their word on promises given without complicating everything with more donations and promises.

Imagine a buisness with integrity!

The posts ive read from the devs leads me to believe that they REALLY want to have all the comunity support they can get, but it seems like they have some very wise buisness management holding the reins as far as the finances go. Everything they have done and release so far has been very careful and thought out. Everything I have seen so far leads me to believe they are in this for the long haul and are truely trying to put out a product that will last. When you see the Kickstarter badge under the names of the devs it tells you that not only are they devoting their time to this, but they are putting their money where their mouth is. They are gamers too and want to enjoy this alongside the rest of us.

My personal advice to those who are wanting to contribute is to get a jar and put any money you want to give in there. Another option is to open an account at your local investment firm and get the best short term dividend stock you can. Life has a way of taking the money we want to keep. Whatever option you choose, the money is still yours if you need it. In a year when MWM has the game a little more "tangible" take the money out and hit the donate button with a smile on your face and a beer in your hand (if your legally allowed to drink).

It is, at the end of the day, fun to kick you into exposed wiring.
