  1. It is a big deal nowadays. Most of the sales are done during the first week, people don't like to wait and don't want to be spoiled by trolls on internet. The first week of a release is really important, where most people will buy the game then it will slowly go down. That's why devs, publishers use DRM, to make sure the game is not pirated day one and lose revenue. Releasing it only on some platform will force the consumers to buy it. How many people bought a console to be able to play gta5/rdr2 on day one ? How many will still buy it when it release later on other platform ? Sure DDA is not on the same level but there is still some people who will buy a switch just because a PC is too expensive for them. As other people said, with cross save, when the game release on xb/ps there will be a big difference with people who already played on switch/pc. Even after breaking the same day release promise, I hope they won't break the promise of having a lot of graphic option on the PC version because of the partnership with Nintendo.
  2. I agree, It's still a shit move what they did but at least you can get a refund. Shenmue backers didn't get a refund at first and I don't know if they finally got it. Looks like CG already refunded backers who asked a refund yesterday (it took me more than a week to get my refund). Once again devs (not only CG) use Kickstarter to start the project promising stuff then hit the backers in the back with exclusivity.
  3. The exclusivity hurt the consumers but the publisher get a lot of money from it. I'll always buy thing at a discounted price but for DDA I was ready to put 75 dollars. I refunded after the delivery cost fiasco but I would also have refunded if they announced an exclusivity. And it's nice of them to accept to refund the backers, you can see in the Kickstarter comment that there are ready to refund after the exclusivity deal. If Nintendo think DDA is a good exclusive I'm sure EPIC think the same and want the exclusivity. CG said the game will release on many store on PC but never said at the same time. Hope I'm wrong. And yes the "joke" in the news about never releasing on Xbox and PlayStation is bad, you want people to laugh about it but I'm sure no Xbox or Playstation players laughed. Stop making jokes. Every news, streams etc you say bad/stupid joke. That's why I don't watch the stream anymore, your are not funny. Anyways thanks for still accepting refund. And props to you for delaying the game, I said you needed more time and you took it. BTW the console release was a flex goal to release at the same time. Doubt they will work on more flex goals
  4. At least the PC version release at the same time. I'm sorry for Xbox and PlayStation. Now let's hope they won't do the same thing for PC store.
  5. They said with UE4 we can have a lot of graphic/performance options. So I hope unlocked fps is part of that.
  6. DDA use UE4 (Epic engine) so it'll probably be on EGS because devs using EU4 and EGS get more money for each sale. I hope DDA will also be on Microsoft store and Xbox gamepass for PC.
  7. Yes good for people, looks like there is more and more option. When I refunded they proposed to lower my pledge but use the credit to purchase additional copy of the game. It's good to know that they can also refund.
  8. Well too bad in the sticky thread LAWLTA said that they knew during the campaign about the shipping fee. So they made a bad decision of not telling us. Also I'll repeat myself but when you purchase something you must be informed of all the costs including shipping. Like LemonyNebula said we are in our right to ask for a refund and I did it (CG refunded my pledge on friday may 24 and I got my money back on my account the following monday) but I still support DDA. (Quoting in this forum are so bad I can't change the title of a quote ? I can't quote from another thread... ) Anyway let the devs work, they have a lot to do. Yes we want more updates but making a news on Kickstarter make people post more comments, ask more questions meaning more work. LAWLTA really did his best to sort out the shipping problems and I believe they are all working really hard on DDA/DD2. CG should stream tonight on twitch so we can hope for some DDA news during the DD2 stream.
  9. Remember not to lie and tell your customer about additional fee. Especially if you know them beforehand. If the game is good I will buy it at launch but I won't support lies. I'm still excited to see what DDA will be, the same as the first day. I have been following the Kickstarter since day one. Helped people in comments and even after refund I'm still watching the Kickstarter/forum/discord everyday. You also need to understand that not everyone can/want to pay half of their pledge. And we don't have 4 month to raise 30€ but less than a month. Because you had to answer the survey. I received 3 email telling me to answer my survey in the last week.
  10. Same here just received the message that my pledge has been refunded. Thank you CG and good luck with DD:A. I hope you can deliver it on time without bugs.
  11. Ok thank you, I sent my ticket for full refund Saturday, so during the weekend. I will probably have an answer at the end of the week.
  12. What email did you received ? One from CG or the automated email when you send a ticket ? When did you send the ticket ?
  13. lol https://www.backerkit.com/blog/12-top-5-things-to-know-when-your-campaign-ends/
  14. I don't think giving DDA exclusive reward instead of gems is a good idea. US backer will not be able to get it and another riot will start. But I still don't think giving gems is a good idea, some people backed because you said that Awakened will capture the magic of DDI. Guess what I hate DDII, having to pay for additional bag/chest/heroes/..., always online, average 600 players daily on steam. I want to say something about this part: I looked at more than 20 ongoing project about different thing (games, art, music, sand drawing thing,...), project going from 200$ to 4m$ (yes 4 million, I guess people like 3d printer) and all of them put the shipping in the campaign. So people know what they have to pay. You don't wan't to put it in the campaign ? Fine put it in the FAQ but at least tell us that we will have to pay. In France: "the delivery costs is responsibility of the seller and removal expense of the buyer, unless stipulation of the contrary". I buy on Amazon, I pay shipping at checkout, bought my phone OP5T, I paid shipping at checkout. The only time I had to pay an additional fee was because the package was stuck at customs post and I had to pay taxes. In EU: https://europa.eu/youreurope/citizens/consumers/shopping/shipping-delivery/index_en.htm I don't need to quote you again right ? You knew during the kickstarter... I want a refund of my 75$ pledge. Thank you.
