It's not an investment. It's a donation. I'd rather donate to something more meaningful.

 Tabula Rasa is more than just a video game :)

 In addition to the 12,500 dollar package. If none of you have even paid attention to this game for that long (since many of you didn't even see this). These packs have essentially been here since the public knew about Path of Exile. They're there to help fund the development of the game and since they're an extremely small development team they need the money. They did not go about doing a Kickstarter like many other companies. Instead, they've made this feature available for people on their website for those who are willing to help pay the development process.

 The "founder pack" if you'd like to call it is more like bundles you'd receive when you're helping to fund a Kickstarter. For example: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cze/hex-mmo-trading-card-game . Hex is a game currently under development which is offering many packs for investors to choose from. Their packs run all the way up to 10,000 dollars.

 What's wrong with investing a large amount of money into a company?

 Is it so wrong to help fund a company who's doing an incredible job with their game?

 Path of Exile is an extremely good action RPG. The game's supposedly going to have 10 acts. 3 of which are already released so far. The game's 3 acts as of right now are fully playable without any restrictions and the game has major updates on a regular basis. People should not be bashing on a company who's standards are far superior to other companies.

If you are "investing" $12,500 with this company, what are the expected returns?

It's not investment. It's donation. Do you expect ROI when donating to kickstarter? It's exactly the same thing. There is ton of epopel with a lot of disposable income that do like to throw huge sums of money on games they enjoy, it's their money and if they earned it I see why they shouldn't be able to do whatever they want with them.

Actually it does if you look at it from a development point of view, to consult, design, create and implement a creature that is pretty much what it can end up costing in the end (once labour and other costs are counted ((source for this is a interveiw with PGI, the company that makes  MWO)) ). It might seem insane but them are the deals.

 

But that is from a developer point of view... From a player point of view i fully agree it is sort of lame, usually the devs eat that cost and only charge a fraction of the price for the pack.

 

Now i think it was a cool pack, but not for that price.

I reckon if they get afew people to donate that amount of money then they might be able to pay someone to fix the 'd-zync' issue, because playing a melee hardcore character in PoE is a joke.

Well, some people have more money then they can spend, are bored and plunge it into stuff like this.

I know a guy in EVE Online that uses like $1-2k/month to echange it into game money. (legal)

He lost a titan there, and he bought $10,000 worth of timecodes, sold them through the game forums and got himself a new titan with pimp fittings included.

It is indeed a lot of money for a majority of gamers, but it's clearly not being marketed as a general consumer product, so I don't really see what's so crazy about it; the reality is that kind of money is nothing to many people and if you personally like a game so much that the perks are worth the cost, fair play.

Exactly, some folks donate millions to charity every year, feed the homeless programs, why can't they donate 12k to a game?

also something meaningful varies greatly from person to person.

Sorry but I don't have a problem with this. I am a poor man, I recently just lost my job irl and in the process of finding another one. I am not bitter that people are 'better off' than I am and if they are rich and successful then kudos to them. If I had all the money in the world to where it was simply not a concern for me I wouldn't have a problem donating 12k for a game i enjoyed.

As for value, well i saw that you got to make your own monster in game and get 10 passes for a pet version. If you can trade those that might be good value. No idea though. I'll never be able to afford it.

So, don't pay it if you don't want it. You can still play the game.

This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

Go for it i say!:)

This is more of a gimmick than anything else, however i am sure that they will sell at least a couple of those, after all there are people with tons of money who like to support things they enjoy, 10k for some is like 20$ for the majority of others.

After all path of Exile is an excellent game, best ARPG on the market currently and the only f2p game out there where you genuinely don't have to buy anything in order to progress and play so kudos to the developer team for that, i wish them success and looking forward to new chapters.

I agree that Path of Exile is a great game. But $12,500 should be considered an investment in the game where the contributor would be considered part owner and share in the profits (should there be any). Of course their "ownership" would be very small but as mentioned before, a group of friends could contribute towards the $12,500 and have bragging rights that they are part of a game they love.

And whats the problem? Its a free choice to support the game, none forced into doing it, nor they gonna have advantage for doing so.

If someone likes the game and has the money should support it if he desires, it's no difference from celebrity fans buying their useless items and dedicated stuffs for millions of dollars.

People complain about sub game, saying it's a thing of the past and bla bla bla. All they want are f2p games, and now they are complaining about the whales financing those f2p games ??? You guys seriously have to start thinking about the whole picture.
