    You spoke and we listened, new pledge changes coming soon, be sure to check them out! :) #PRF #Communitymatters

    http://www.pantheonmmo.com/news/latest_news/

    Due to popular demand a new $50 pledge tier will be available September 12th. This new tier will be a bare bones entry level pledge and will provide a single copy of the game at launch, supporter level forum access, the in-game title of Pantheon Explorer, and early name reservation.

    In addition to this new tier we will be removing the Knight's ($100) and Patron's ($150) pledges from the store. We are nearing capacity for alpha and access to it at this level is a thank-you to the early adopters. The two tiers being removed will be replaced with similar pledge tiers without alpha access to the game. So if you have been considering one of these tiers, act now before they go away September 12th.

    If you have already purchased a Knight's or Patron's pledge, your pledge does not change. You will still have access to the alpha build of the game when it becomes available.

    Exciting news. It sounds to me that you have been getting a pretty decent supporter response to date! Keep up the great work :)

    Now I can buy pledges for friends who probably wouldn't have been too excited about testing in Alpha anyway. :)

    Kilsin any info on when outside pre-alpha testing is set to begin, i eventually want to upgrade to am originators pledge but really the only driver for me other than supporting the project is pre-alpha (Note: i understand that pre-alpha should for the most part be specific software testing i.e. some well though out scripted test to verify software behavior, Repetitive, Designed to find bugs, and requiring the necessary documentation to both replicate the issue and find a resolution and/or workaround.)

    No, still a way off yet, we will announce it when we get close, though. :)

    Will we still be able to upgrade from Knight pledges to Champion/VIP tiers? Are there any current plans to remove Pre-Alpha from the VIP tiers? I'm interested in the Originator's Pledge but waiting to see more progress on the game (keep those Twitch streams coming!).

    +1.  I have Knight right now, but am thinking about upgrading....

    That was my cue to get on board. I have been following you for a long time and considdered supporting, but found the $100 a little too pricy. But now that its closing up with alpha/beta access etc. I finally put down the money. I love what I have seen so far in news letters, twitch streams etc., it reminds me of my own good memories of EQ.

    I am a programmer myself, and I have great respect for the game and vision you guys at VR are creating. I hope I will be able to use my professional background to deliver some good alpha/beta feedback.

    Well, if I had any incling what the "Ring of the Fallen" provided, I'd be inclined to move up another $50.  I may go to $250 just because of a love for this project, but going to have to count pennies on September 1st payday and see.

    Also, welcome BitCrunzh to the Knight pledge!

    I really hope they don't close it early, I'll be able to pledge next month! I don't see why they would, they posted a pretty specific date.

    You will still be able to upgrade from any previously purchased pledge, if you have any trouble with it please submit a support ticket :)

    The date we set is always the cut-off, it will never be earlier mate ;)

    Hey Kilsin, thanks for the heads-up and (again) demonstrating great community sensitivity.

     

    Is there a place we can check our pledge level?  I was a Knight pledge, but then upgraded and can't remember what my current level is.  I poked around a little but couldn't find a place on the website to list my current pledge/subscription.  Can you help me find that page?

    I dont recall but previous payments do not accrue correct? i was doing a Originator's Pledge ($100.00 monthly for 12 months) but life happend. I saw pre-alpha testing is a ways off so i am hoping to jump up again. 

     

    Another question. If you are on a 12 month payment do you get the benefits for the teir level on the final payment or while the subscription is active.

    I'm currently on a Champion monthly subscription. From my understanding, once I hit a certain tier for money contributed I get access to that pledge level (more than $100 contributed I hit Knight's Pledge, etc.)...right? Will I no longer be eligible for the Knight's Pledge that includes Alpha access when I finally hit that amount of money contributed in a few months?

    Also, how do I check to see how much I have contributed to date? If I wanted to make up the difference to hit the Knight's or Patron's Pledge before it's gone, how do I make that odd payment?

    Thank you.

    To clarify;

    Subscriptions to the forums no longer contribute to pledges, they just allow you forum access to post in general or full access to read and post in Champion sections. Payment plans, however, allow you to pay off a pledge over time and provide immediate access to the forums and any forum related rewards.

    Payment plans, however, allow you to pay off a pledge over time and provide immediate access to the forums and any forum related rewards. You gain the benefits while the payment plan is active and when you pay it off completely, if you stop payments you lose the rewards and access but once you start it back up again you can continue on as you left off, you may, however, miss out on cutoff dates for special rewards and pledge contents if you allow the payment plan to stop, so be mindful of that.

    If you are unsure about your account status you can always submit a support ticket, the team are always happy to help where they can, you can do that by following this link: https://www.pantheonmmo.com/support/
