Re: Disappointment in KS6 "Stretch Goals" "system" and "freebies"

I also think DF should do stretch goals in the PM, they make a fortune there, I am sure. Ya, especially when so much of the information is not available until the last day or so of the project. They withhold so much information both within their control and beyond their control until very late in t...

Re: Disappointment in KS6 "Stretch Goals" "system" and "freebies"

What happens when the KS, which is separate from the total funding, does not result in the undoubtedly awesome planned and sculpted stretch goal figures being revealed/reached? You don’t get them? Yup, that's my fear. We all don't get them because DF used the wrong stretch goal model. They have scu...

Re: Disappointment in KS6 "Stretch Goals" "system" and "freebies"

So i got mocked earlier when i said i did not like seeing SG's revealed so far out. It makes each unlock seem irrelevant as we do not get a reveal of the next SG. Here it is a week later and while we have added 300K, NOTHING has changed on the KS page other than a teaser pic for forests... I find m...

Re: Disappointment in KS6 "Stretch Goals" "system" and "freebies"

Kickstarter takes roughly 8% for itself, plus the credit card fees on top of that. I agree the stretch goals are kinda lame, but I don't really care. I will alter my pledge to get the parts I want regardless of the stretch goals. The system is set up to make it better to put the majority of your mo...

Re: Disappointment in KS6 "Stretch Goals" "system" and "freebies"

I can't speak specifically to the PM that DF uses, but I've seen breakdowns that had PM providers taking a good chunk of cash for their service provided. It's incredibly valuable, and those offering it know that. This may not be the case in DF's setup, I don't know, but I wouldn't assume that they ...

Re: Disappointment in KS6 "Stretch Goals" "system" and "freebies"

...$0.05 worth. Sheez, inflation shouldn't effect sayings, or am I wrong. :?: William, maybe your opinion just isnt worth that much ;) I certainly can't comment on the real value of my opinions but Canada withdrew penny coins from circulation back in 2013. A nickel is the lowest cash price I can de...

Re: Disappointment in KS6 "Stretch Goals" "system" and "freebies"

I am not surprised that as of right now we have a whopping 56 new backers. I don’t think this metric is paraticularly useful. It just means that of the total backer count, 56 have never backed any kickstarter project, i.e. they created a KS account to back Caverns. It doesn’t mean that Dwarven Forg...

Re: Disappointment in KS6 "Stretch Goals" "system" and "freebies"

But the "stretch goal train" is just a shell game. Yes, I get the psychological aspect of people seeing "TWENTY STRETCH GOALS UNLOCKED", but the end result is no different to the consumers and those paying attention if they had 50k SG's and a 100,000 'target', or a 1.1m 'target' and everything from...

Almost all anticipated/repeat KS have this pattern -- rush of backers on day one, rush of backers and pledge increases on the final days, and a long middle.
I certainly hope you are right. The dollar total was down for most of the day
