But if it's an item that the devs know is going into the shop, then doesn't it make much more sense to offer credit and give people examples of what they can purchase with it? It solves the problem of wondering if there's something you want without limiting options.

Knowing one or two things going into the shop and offering them as perks isn't difficult. Knowing all or most of whats going in the shop during the second kickstarter isn't as easy. You are now arguing something vastly different than what I originally commented on. You effectively said that if it's going in the shop it's not worth suggesting and I said there was a value to suggesting it even if it was going in the shop.
I am not interested in turning this into a stupid argument so you win.

That's a meaningless distinction. The entire KS is for something at some undetermined time in the future. That was probably more true with the game's release in the original KS than it is with the first couple of major updates right now.

Hardly. It's about the addition of 'another' undetermined time' element. They are being asked to wait for the game (with a tentative schedule) and you want to also ask them to wait even longer for perk.
You are just picking nits and again I'm not interested in the fight. You win.

I definitely want rewards. Ive been here a long time and would love to give money towards helping them out but securing something nice for myself.

I missed the first round. No rewards for poor me

THat thing was awesome! Especially in PVP. When I needed one more hit to kill someone and they ran off, that thing had crazy range. It was so rewarding seeing them fall to their death as they tried to get away from me. MUAHAHAHA

The biggest reward I can get is to play the game when it goes live.

I had a lot of fun proposing silly stuff, but I really would like to see an Amerikatt statue out there - it would just be way too fun. (maybe give exploration points for finding it). I would put it in an alley where you can hear Cats meowing. The plaque could read: In Memorial for the heroic efforts saving the cats of Titan city against the forces of ALF. Thank you Amerikatt for making this world a better place for cats and their human companions!

I agree with both of these sentiments!

Thanks, Cyke for advocating on my behalf!

*sound of 5,000,000 cats caterwauling in unison!*

Just a cat from another star!

Alright, I have an idea... you know those costume pieces that are normally only available to Arch heroes and villains like statesman's mask or Lord Recluse's back arms? How about as a perk we make those available to players, and you can never get them again, like for example I think it would be sweet to be able to put anthem's gauntlet on a player character
Considering Anthem's 'gauntlet' is a prosthetic arm? Hell to the no. Considering the rest of the lore I remember about said arm it is FAR more than just a 'costume piece.'

It's really no different than a cybernetic arm, so no reason people couldn't have a cybernetic arm that looked like hers. In fact, it'd probably be what all the one arm kids want!

I do agree ! I missed the first round cause i could not donate at this moment. But, now, i can so as a second chance backer, i would love to have, as the first one, some stuff too that can make me "one of the second chance backer". Whatever is it while i can be distinguished as a second backer/supporter ^^
"Of course", the more you donate, the more you should have a "great" reward (from a badge to an anticipated access to the updates first during a week or two - by the way, this could be a last test session before the official launch :D-)

I hope you guys aren't waiting for the holidays to launch the second Kickstarter as some kind of, "holiday surprise!". I certainly wont be able to put in as much as I normally could if its during the holidays. Family comes first!

How about a special

How about a special Kickstarter Mug?

Question for the devs. How time consuming is it to add names to things? Say text to a shop window or a text add to a park bench?
Disney added the names of the original imagineers to shop windows on Main Street, USA.
say a bar owned by 10 kickstarters. a photo studio owned by three,
A Bus Bench that says, "____________ says, Drink Nuka Cola! Good stuff, Maynard!" Same message different names.

I'm trying to think of things that won't delay the game, or add expenses. I'm happy with stars, maybe a few months of VIP status.

How about a phone booth where you can click on the phone book. Clicking brings up a list of Kickstarters and a bit of experience for finding it.

or a newsie hawking papers. every now and then he has a word balloon that mentions a kickstarter, "Black Falcon saves the city again!" the kid probably already exists, just add a word balloon.

What if we play with the

What if we play with the phone booth idea and make it something more useful.

For example: What if you aggroed way too many bad guys on the street and you are running for your life, so you run to a phone booth, and click on it, which then temporarily changes your wardrobe to look like a standard male or female citizen. The mob then disperses as they think they lost you. Hehehehe. Idk maybe that idea sucks lol

All good ideas. They are already on the list. Check the original post for an updated list of what has been already suggested, it might spark some new ideas for you.

AFAIK, this is already going to be a thing. As in random NPC's will mention player characters from time to time. I will add it to the list just in case.
EDIT: Actually it's already on t he list.

If not a phone-booth, or a police-box, then an info-terminal... or just a sound-baffled wireless hot-spot, where we can sit or stand and deal with the fan-mail on our PDA-equivalent.

It doesn't suck, might be a little too specific a use, but it doesn't suck.
If nothing else, a phone booth is a superhero trope so the game wouldn't be ill served by including something related to them.
Are you suggesting a phone booth costume change/agro wipe as a perk?

I like the way you put it. But no, I wouldn't want that as a perk. Was just voicing an idea that popped in my head after Cyclops mentioned a phone booth lol.

All great ideas. Just make the name we see on the store display and in the paper and wherever be a datacall from the database of qualified patrons. This way the city is always changing and the names will show up all over the place, a different name and location every time that object loads into that particular client.


I like to take your ideas and supersize them. This isn't criticism, it is flattery. I come with nothing but good will and a spirit of team-building. If you take what I write any other way, that is probably just because I wasn't very clear.

I didn't think so, but wanted to be sure before I discounted it from the list.

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.

I've seen nothing recently about it, but then again I don't think they even gave us a "ballpark estimate" of when it would happen either. I would give it up until about mid-2018 - if it doesn't happen by then that's when I'd start to worry about it and the overall estimate of the game arriving by the end of 2018.

The implication was that they would come to a conclusion around the time of that Con a couple months ago. Since we didn't get an answer then I'd say it's going to be awhile longer. I doubt we'll see anything before the end of the year. The "feeling" I've gotten is that this round of integration has not been going smoothly. I get that feeling because they haven't taken us "in-engine" with the last few streams and overall organization seems to have dropped. Now given the time of year that is going to further screw with organization and goal progress. The volunteers are going to have to spend a lot more time doing family stuff. And they should. Generally, I don't expect much for the next few weeks. But they are free to prove me wrong.

Now that we have word that

Now that we have word that the Character Creator is hoped to be testing in March(not set in stone), perhaps we will see the 2nd chance around that time, as they will have something physical to hype everyone up with to generate buzz and extra $$

We never said we hope it to be testing in March, that we need it in testing by March to keep the schedule going.

Well, regardless of when it comes out, I was merely taking a shot in the dark saying that the Character Creator will happen around the same time frame as the 2nd Chance, that's all.

Holidays would be a bad time

Holidays would be a bad time for it anyway: lots of money going in other directions for other gifts. Might be too much indirect competition.
