This also went out in the monthly newsletter today.
A huge thanks to everyone who is preordering. Preorder money goes directly into giving me more development time, purchasing art assets, and saving for a launch server.
Will pre-order soon. =)
Pre-Ordered, can't wait for beta! :)
Will be pre-ordering on thursday :D
Me too, I hate how paypal takes so long to receive funds.
My wait is due to the silly payment processing into my bank account lol, paypal seems to process my payments straight away, might order 2 months :D
Noticed the first 500 pre-orders bit, if I order 2 months do I get another 2 months free? If its set for each order and not per account, someone could just preorder twice, in 2 seperate transactions...
Any chance you'd take Bitcoin as a payment option? MTGox has a prebuilt vendor app.
I already pre ordered with PP but Dwolla or Bitcoin are great alternatives.
I think the reason It doesn't clear right away is because they don't have my card info, only my bank info.
I pre-ordered twice in two transactions like that, but for a gift for someone else interested ;)
Well if i pre-order 2 months and get 4 months, il give one to a friend, maybe someone who cant use paypal...
For the first 500 it's just 1 extra month no matter what. It's per-account.
Maybe later but for now I just don't want to spend the time setting it up.
If you're going to pre-order for someone else, be sure to enter their email in the preorder page on our site.
Ahh cool, Thursday Here i come :P
You should mention that last sentence on the pre-order page =D
Preeeeeeeeeee ordered :D
Only 1 month tho, little short on cash atm :(
1 is enough! :)
I was wondering, are the transactions done automaticaly, as in, I pay and an automatic process give me the alloted time, or is it all done manualy?
If its manually i can see alot of work in just simply processing the payments.
It's automatic, though it's not completely set up.
welcome to the clan xD
so um when does this start im 2 monts paid up i think the main issue is until u get the beta up some that might want in will be reluctant to do so so lets get the beta running and then i can assist u across the internet to get this great game scaled up
is there any way to lower the cost per month or provide longer subscriptions, say, $50 per 6 months, $300 for life, etc.?
Something like that will probably happen, aka a "Buy more at a cheaper price" but right now it's just a promotional price for anyone who wants to help fund development.
It will just be the flat monthly subscription, with the option to pay the same amount for a year in advance. I want to keep it simple.
Hey is there an ETA for the next news letter or when will you allow testing again?
Not yet, sorry.
Preorder is done, now hope for the best....
I have been following First Earth for a while. I found a new link in the Wurm Forum and decided it was time to sign up with a pre-order / subscription. I look forward to being there at the beginning of the adventure.
ok preeordered. cant wait for beta
I'll preorder a month per month until it's out :D Can I do that? Or is it going to break something in my account?
You can do that, thanks!
I do apologise for reviving an old thread is that is considered ill-mannered on this thread (as in many others) but I do have a question concerning the pre-ordering.
When one pre-orders 2 months, are those months going directly to the beta-test and will not be able to be re-used when the full game comes out, or will people be able to get some form of recompense for supporting the game in the beta and receiving some free bonus months when the game comes out based on for how many months they played in the beta?
Reviving old threads is perfectly fine, in my view.
Yes, the preordered months will be 'used up' during Beta. Beta will be the point where the game is playable and fun. It's similar in this way to other beta products, such as Gmail. I can't offer too many free months because that income will be useful to improve and grow the game.
I will preorder a little later, but I am super excited to see the product.
Actually screw it, 2 months ordered.
Awesome, welcome to alpha!
Enjoy my $10.
