    I am leaning towards 50 or 100 bucks.

    Same here. $250 looks pretty tempting, although a bit steep for my wallet. :oops:

    I think this is justified. If you aren't going to help fund this project you deserve to be punished! :D

    Seriously though, it's only 15 dollars! You pay the same amount of money if you go to McDonalds twice in a week!

    Very well said!!! To keep the costs down, the low-tier extra stuff should all be digital downloads, higher stuff really things that would be cheap to produce (smth like posters which are cheaper to print than making, for e.g., a figurine, no? ) and only substantial contributions more expensive awards.

    But, in the end, yeah, as one can see, it will mostly depend on how much each person will personally be able to afford to pay/how passionate or crazy is, and not very much on how attractive the extras are.

    Oh they easily have $100 bucks from me. Not for the incentives though. I just want them to have all the money I can afford so I can get a kickass product and a knowing I at least took part in an effort to bring back a classic RPG in a classic RPG style. Hope they make it a good'n. :D

    I'm definitely in for at least $50. I like the "get your name as a character/location/weapon" one, but the statues and shrines seem kinda weird.

    Man, it would be sweet to have a bar or military base in the game named after you.

    15$ for me, that's all I can afford.

    30$ option feels a bit empty, since DF had a HD version of their documentary in it.

    50$ and 100$ seem very very nice.

    I'm not sure about all those specially named NPCs and statues. Hopefully they will have a special location for them.

    Also I hope that special weapon and skill will be more of a cosmetic thing. That way everything will be alright.

    They'll get 15$ from me. I wish I could spend something like 100$, but right now 15$ is all that is left in my bank account back in Austria.

    I like all the tiers, with the exception of the $30 tier.

    Paying twice the price JUST for a few MP3 files doesn't seem right. And this is coming from a Mark Morgan fanboy.

    If I could afford it, I'd go down the route of the $100 tier - as this looks absolutely incredible. But alas, I think I'll need to settle with the $50 tier.

    Yeah, I'm wondering about that. Will they ship the stuff worldwide for free or charge extra?
    Otherwise I'm considering the 100 dollar option.

    Yea, whatever your point of view about this, it's a critical communication fumble.
    Quite amazing they have done such a nooby mistake.
    It was so obvious it would create an issue.
    But let's forget it, W2 is coming ! I want this project funded !
    Aenemic i partially quote you on the wasteland forum about the donation aproach over giving according the rewards one because i found it relevant. I hope you don't mind.

    Yeah. The whole "preorder DLC" thing wasn't in the proposal I saw a while back or I would've advised cutting it. I also strongly advised making the $30 tier more of digital CE. Can't see it working without.

    They'll likely charge for shipping. Exact system to be determined

    So...uhm...they are ok with naming 150 NPCs after contributors ?

    How could that possibly work ? :|

    How many NPCs do they plan to have in the game anyway ?

    It's a minor inconvenience i don't mind to support to get the game funded.
    I also find it somewhat quite relevant and enjoyable for a 1000$ pledge. It should be quite funny to be able to kill your avatar :o
    Anyways, maybe some people will not give their real name but choose one more apropriate or reconfigure it to something more convenient (like Brian Fargo thing).
    I barely played wasteland but if it's a bit like fallout1/2, 150 NPC is quite a lot but easily doable (i assume it will be only "decorative NPC" like junky in the den or Vault citizen in Vault City).
    Or maybe park them all in the same location and.... :twisted:
    I'm sure they could find a much more interesting idea too if needed.

    You could meet them in random encounters. Generic travelers in the wasteland or raiders, bandits, trader, something like that.

    Ok, i agree i am an asshole but i just notice the different level of desert ranger medal of honor....it's really great.
    Imagine showing to your friend your level 3 medal and him saying "you don't have the level 1 medal?" (well in this case level 6, another possible mistake).
    Concept of level is childish, number the medals or i don't know (maybe they do that way because it's cheaper ?).
    Moreover Desert Ranger medal of honor, does it sound ridiculous only to me ? Name it Wasteland 2 medal or Wasteland 2 contributor/donator medal or at least only Desert Ranger medal.
    250$ pledge and more, it's not for little kid....
    Damn they are really bad or i'm seriously too complicated (both i think.:oops: ).It's not that this one matter to me, i don't even care but if they are going to do it, it should be done right.
    Got 0 problem with the Doublefine rewards though.

    I would like to donate either of those two... then blast the npc with the biggest weapon I can for being a rich Douchebag...

    Well, I gota comform to just buy it when it comes out. I could donate $50 but I have no credit card...

    I'm very excited about Wasteland 2 but I need more information (will it be top down or isometric for example) before I decide how much money I'll invest.

    Apart from the pre-order exclusive skill the proposed tiers look very promising. I'm curious how they are going to handle naming npc's after contributors though.

    Personally I don't care about Steam's DRM but being able to install the game out of the box would be a welcome change.

    It's a matter of principle.
