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.

i see.. ill talk to support maybe ill find some way i can upgrade or something heh

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.

http://www.dragonspropheteurope.com/forum/topic/1098-founders-package-faq/

 

 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.

I think a mind wipe so people could play an mmo like it was their first time again, would be easier to build than a new mmo people here would actually like. - DamonVile

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.

I got my refund also and ended getting the $90 pack instead,I can always use the SC in EQ2 if this one doesn't work out.

What I did learn is,they will upgrade you if you bought your pack before the houses were added.If you bought a pack after the houses were part of the matrix,you can't get a refund/upgrade(according to SOE).The only way would be to add another pack to your account and keep both.

not sure what that means especially when considering a f2p game.. you are just paying for early access and a couple perks nothing more.. really main reason I did it for this game was the SC on top of being interested in the game.. sony cash can be used on any sony game that has transactions for it so if this game doesn't pan out for me ill save it for another one of their games.. no real loss

Your ... budget is kinda...scary Aerowyn ! You buy like...every game which is coming up. Yea, maybe that's not to much money , but you are like .. everywhere ! F2P, B2P, P2P . I know you bought at least 4 games in the past month, so .. you do have a real life, life ... right? :)

haha yea somewhat real life.. but yes.. honestly I ONLY buy MMOs.. single player offline games i get lent to me from friends so I never purchase those. So really isn't a lot of money.. I don't buy $200 packs or anything like that. Ill throw $30 into a kickstarter or $60 into a pre-purchase but that's about it.. but yes I do play ALL MMOs or at least I try all MMOs i come across:)

You're as bad as me! And my brother thinks I'm crazy! But I just love MMOs I want to try them all and continue playing as many of the good ones as I can lol.
