As long as Gen Con doesn't affect the KS like SXSW did with KS4, where focus was taken off the KS for a solid week, I think it will be fine. I just worry the attention the KS got in KS5 might be less this time around during Gen Con.

July will be good for some individuals and not so good for others. I agree that doing it while Gencon is running will be grest for DF. If they set up a good display and promote the hell out of the KS they will get dozens if not hundreds of backers signing up with their phones from the Con.

Oh god, I was actually hoping for it to start before the KSV stuff arrived, that way the wife wouldn't know what I spent :D

As many have already said, the wait is fine - we all trust in DF! I also agree that having the KS actually running while at Gen Con could be an excellent way of pulling in some new blood and upping the backer numbers, which is the #1 main thing we need to keep this train barreling down the tracks :)

Can't wait to see all these BEANS you said you were going to spill over the next weeks and months!

That is the one advantage for me. Once July ends, I am in summer vacation and try my best to post continuously.

For me personally, July is a horrible time. We have a couple week long camping trip planned and we are busy every weekend. June was not a great time for me but July is worse. Oh well, I know the world does not revolve around me. I will likely just make a placeholder pledge and figure things out in the pledge manger.

I will miss hanging out in KS comment and participating in the live streams, but that’s the way it goes.

I'm curious to see how this turns out. Since July is my birth-month its an excellent excuse for me to go a little wilder. Or have blown all my money on house repairs and feel poor. Who knows?

I suspect the exposure at Gencon will be well worth it.

We are delaying the launch of KS6 until late July.

Here is our reasoning.
Makes sense I hope doing the Gencon thing will bring in more new blood.

I hope that this later start will allow the KS6 PM to stay open till October, that made all the difference in KS5 for me. While I normally like to pledge all I can during the DF KS I was not able to for KS5 and I am sure that a longer PM will help others even if I do not need it this year.

Knock on wood and pray for no more medical issues.

Ah, too bad. Due to real life circumstances, July is a suboptimal month for me. I’ll be moving across the country that month, which is going to eat up a lot of my money. And when my wife and I finally get settled at our new place, we’re finally opening a joint bank account (after getting married this past October).

In addition to having objectively less money to work with due to the move, it will be harder for me to participate in a July Kickstarter to the extent that I would like to, as my spending will then be under greater scrutiny by the wife (whereas it would have been comparatively easy for me to quietly dump a bunch of my saved money in June).

But I trust that Dwarven Forge has weighed the pros and the cons extensively, and I trust them to do everything that they can to make KS VI as successful as possible. And when KS VI eventually does launch, they’ll have my full support as a fan, even if my financial support is somewhat limited.
