Founders to Receive Starter Pack Items After All

Founders to Receive Starter Pack Items After All - MMORPG.com

The Albion Online team has announced that Founders would be receiving all of the items for the corresponding tier of Starter Packs which are currently on sale now that servers are down and the sale of Founders Packs have stopped. Initially, Founders would have received the items purchased prior to July 9th, but many were upset that the new Starter Packs included items and mounts. In addition, they will receive 10% more gold on top of the original amount.

We have previously communicated that Starter Packs would be comparable to Founder Packs, but would have less value for money. We felt that with the 10% extra Gold, the Founder's house and all the little other founder's perks we had kept that promise, in particular given that the founder's gear would no longer be available post launch. We have underestimated how much the looks of the starter mounts matter to many of you.

Another issue addressed by the Albion Online team in their "mea culpa" note on the forum is that the start times for both Founders (all tiers) and new Starters (all tiers) cannot be changed due to the developers feeling that it would "permanently skew the game, which would be very bad for its long-term health".

Albion Online is due to launch on July 17th.
