    I dare not touch my pledge its the knights pledge and I hope it is still the better one out there, as we first helped back this project. But if more funding is needed ill get a new pledge so i dont ruin my pledge or just donate cash when i can.

    You are safe to upgrade to a new pledge and will keep any pledge rewards that the Knight's pledge has that have since been retired. If you have specific questions, please open a support ticket and we can guide you through the process

    Wow - this seems like a big announcement.  All pledges can upgrade and keep original rewards or is this specifically Knights?

    We haven't announced it officially yet. However, we have listened to the comments from our community and will be allowing specific pledge rewards to transfer when someone upgrades. We don't want to punish our early supporters by not allowing them to keep their rewards nor do we want to stop them from upgrading a pledge for fear of losing something. When the full announcement goes out, we will have a list of rewards that will transfer.

    This is great news and a win/win for VR and fans. This will absolutely bring in more funding for VR. I’m strongly considering upgrading from Adviser’s Pledge to Black Rose or Triumvirate’s Pledge now.

    The real question is, what can VR throw in to help me sell the upgrade to the wife… hahahahaha. VIP Pledges get a dozen roses sent to the wife

    Those roses might well help stem any criticism. Good to be proactive when facing thorny issues. 

    If it doesn't work and she piles them up to burn, you will truly face a flowering inferno.

    More seriously yes this is good - I wouldn't upgrade now but after the details are all determined and announced I am planning to.

    Holy cow, this IS huge news.  So just a point of clarification... if you upgrade to a higher tier from a lower one, do you only retain rewards that have been retired OR do you retain any reward that is in the lower tier that is not in the higher tier regardless of whether the item is retired or not?  

    Example: if I upgrade from Adviser’s pledge to Black Rose pledge do I keep the renaming vouchers, ring and other items that are not included in Black Rose?

    Thanks

    Ya alot of questions were not really answered by just saying you keep some stuff when you upgrade :/ Example: If you have the 1k/3k/10k pledge do you have the new black rose pledge included or the one retiring or both?

    As I read it, you’re safe to upgrade if your pledge has been retired and is thereby protected. 

    If your current pledge level is active (still available) then upgrade at your own risk. 

    My my pledge is still active, I won’t risk losing what I currently have, so no upgrades for me at this time. 

    At least this is how I understood what was announced.

    We have listened to the concerns of the community and we want to reward those who supported us early and want to upgrade. If you have a specific question in regards to a reward you want to ensure you keep when upgrading, please open a support ticket. We are willing to walk through the process with anyone. We are in the middle of a pledge package refresh which is confusing the process more than it should. Currently, we have replaced the $100 pledge and added a $200 pledge. Earlier this year, we revamped the $500 pledge. The other pledge levels will be refreshed soon and the progression of pledge packages will make more sense when that is complete.

    ((The other pledge levels will be refreshed soon and the progression of pledge packages will make more sense when that is complete.))

    I'm sure some people that were considering upgrades are, like me, waiting to see how things look after this refresh. Over three months since the last post in this thread - anything new about when "soon" will come? And whether there will be more information answering questions such as what the Black Rose Satchel is (it does not say cosmetic) and what early character creation provides that the previous perk of early name reservation does *not* provide? 

    Not a complaint I am sure the new swag shop took a lot of time away from this project.

    Sorry for the delay on this, but the new pledges are waiting until we launch the new website and pledge store. I don't have a firm timeline on that I can release at this time. That being said, you can still upgrade and when the new pledges come in, if you like that better, we can always switch you to it.

    In answer to your other questions, the satchel will be an in game item you can carry things in. It will be similar to the other bags, etc that the other pledges have.

    Early character creation has been extended to all pledges with the exception of the $50 pledge. It is different from the early name reservation in that you will be able to get into game a few a days prior to launch to create your character so it is all ready for when the game goes live. Early name reservation allows you to reserve a unique name and that will be offered prior to the character creation.

    The website is still coming by the end of the year, right?

    Thank you for the quick reply - very helpful. 

     

     My forte is character creation. Make an ala carte pledge item character creation/name reservation (stacking with the ones in the pledge packages, of course) and I may buy a few thousand and fund the game.

    Just kidding I don't need quite that many.
