    Yea the pack's are nice just for the SC,if you play any other SOE game's.The SC is worth the price of admission and the other item's are just icing :)

    sort of wish i went with the $90 instead of the $40 but doesn't look like you can upgrade

    I would have bought the $40 if I had known about the included house.They didn't add that until the day after I purchased the $20 :(

    where does it say included house? i see you get house items but nowhere do i see you get a house

    They had changed the matrix and it show's a pic of a house.The $40 get's a small and $90 get's a large.

    oh i see.. i thought it just said small house item pack not small house + items

    The first few day's it did and then they added the houses.I wish they would have done that day 1.

    Does anyone know if the items in the Dragon Packs, like the $40, $90 versions are available in game....either by a rare drop or killing a boss or some crap like that?  Is there any reason for people that pay for the higher tier packs to get pissed off later on and feel like they got cheated?  I see some items say "exclusive"...what exactly does that mean?

    pretty sure anything labeled exclusive can "only" be obtained through buying a pack.. as of now at least

    Just a note housing will be in the PvP zone in Dragon's Prophet, although at launch PvP in the housing area won't be activated right out the gate. They stated the reason PvP will be in the housing area (which are on floating islands) is because guild wars would be fought in this area as well. So there will be a possibility of guild castles in the Housing/PvP area. One more thing to add, your house will be a safe area where you cannot be attacked. So that along with the ability to use teleportation stones/scrolls will allow players that do not wish to PvP free from being exposed to it.

     Its just a founders pack, and you get the monetary value of Station Cash for the pack you buy. So $90 of SC for the $90 founders pack.

    Also 'free to play' is never entirely free. You can't complain that other people get things you don't by using money if you are playing a F2P game. You are trying the game for free, isn't that enough? If you want the full experience you always have to pay in one way or another.

    IF they follow the planetside 2 model this game wont be p2w it will be a real f2p game but we shall see.  People get the gw2 model of b2p with cash shop confused with SOEs F2P (you do not pay for the game at all)

    Yeah I just thought I'd throw that out there for people concerned about how PvP will effect their ability to enjoy their house. Seems at least Runewaker thought about player's less concerned about PvP. Also to be noted. The PvE areas will be PvP free so players leveling and gathering do not have to worry about being ganked by death from above.

     

    But if you think about it, it may work out to Runewaker's favor this way. All the PvP fighting will be done in a area that will never become a ghost town. It could become the "Stranglethorn Vale" of Dragon's Prophet. With your home serving at the "Booty Bay" safe area.

    Well, the European forum says that you can buy multiple founders packs for an account.  So if you want both dragons you could buy both pacs for the account.  I don't know if sony is doing the same thing, but I bet they would.

    i can buy both if I want but that's bit much for me honestly.. id happily bump up my $40 to $90 but don't think ill throw in $90 on top of what i spent already

     I was thinking about starting out on the cheapest pack, and buying one of the better packs if I like what I see in game.  I'm sure they will gladly take your money to buy another pack....but does what you buy get used to upgrade to another pack?  If I purchase the $20 pack, then pay another $20....will it equal the $40 pack, or will it just give me two of the same items in the $20 tier?   Has anyone tried upgrading their packs yet?

    i sent them a support ticket to ask.. will probably have to wait till at least monday to get a reply

    I asked about the possibility to upgrade Dragon Packs and got this reply:

    "We do not offer an upgrade path as each pack contains separate reward items. However, you can purchase multiple packs to get all of the included rewards. If you have any more questions or concerns, please let me know."

    From the people who have purchased a pack and are currently playing, what  are your thoughts on the game?  I have no problem shelling out cash as long as its something decent.  From the videos I've seen, its seems like a good game...but we all know how things can be much different when actually playing.  What do you guys think?

    i got same reply.. as far as game its still under NDA.. but again i see it as you are paying for the sony cash and get the extra benefit of some nice stuff for this game plus beta access

    I've always been happy with SoE support.  It's nice to see they're still pretty accomodating.

    Just to reiterate in case any others have missed it.  If you buy a VIP pack now you get instant access to their closed beta which is under a fairly strict NDA according to their Facebook page.  Even if you don't buy a pack, you can still apply for the beta.  They are working to get as many people as reasonably possible into the test period (also from their FB page).  That's pretty cool and sounds like they're serious about the testing.

    According to the NDA, I can tell you that there is a beta.... and I am in it.  That's it. 

    I would say as "pay for beta" programs go this is a very good deal.  $20 gets you in the door.  There are VIP upgrade options if you love the game via support, and if you hate the game you still have station cash to use for other sony games (they have a lot to choose from).  Also, they have said they will try to get as many unpaid betas in as possible.  If your willing to wait you have a pretty good shot at getting in at some point.  Based on the value and the cost alone I think its a good deal.  As for the game itself,  I can't tell you anything other than, there is a beta... and I am in it.
