So, I am a veteran. How do I see that it was sync'd? I did it back in February.
You are trying to double check that your Ember credits went through? I need to check around myself to see how this is done but I know who to talk to.

Very nice. I bought the Commander pack way back when (near the end of the time it was available) because I felt I had gotten far more than $100 worth of fun out of it by then, and felt it was a game worth supporting. And I feel I got well over $100 worth of gameplay afterwards, and didn't really stop playing until they completely remade the game after the "full release". So, while I don't feel like I was ripped off despite the game changing direction (and then dying), this is a really cool move on your part and definitely makes me that much more interested in where Ember is going. Because this move would be inconceivable to so many game publishers*, and makes me think there's a strong chance that decisions will be based on what most makes the game fun, rather than trying to squeeze as much money as possible regardless of how many people it drives away.

Really though, all I care about is that it turns into a decent game with jumpjet mechanics that are similar to (or better than) Firefall. I would gladly pay $60 for a good single-player game with Firefall's gameplay mechanics, and while this isn't single-player (which is what I tend to prefer, even though I have player a good amount of several MMOs over the years) I am thrilled at the chance to see another game with similar mechanics. The shear versatility of movement provided in Firefall really drew me in, and the shear freedom provided by Firefall's mechanics has not once been repeated in any game I have played since.

Just one bit of unasked for advice: don't put too much focus into paying complaints/"suggestions" by the players. I think one of the problems that lead to Firefall's repeated changes to the gameplay was a result of trying to satisfy the loudest voices (yes, The9 were the killing blow, but there were some problems with remaking systems before Firefall was bought).

And a small suggestion: pirate-themed founders edition :D.

*who usually seem to be the main source of problems these days.

PS: When I was about to post, I noticed something about this thread: this is thread number 666. Coincidence?

I wrote a 20 page design vision book to make clear what my vision is. Suggestions that enhance that vision are welcome. But the vision is there for a reason. Has to be the game I want to make. I don't want to morph it into 5v5 PVP

Think about it...would I do a good job if I wasn't making the game that I loved and was personally interested in?

Bought commander, didn't regret it. Firefall had been a great game that I'd played for a long time, having lots of fun. Nice to see the purchase is still showing its worth even in the spiritual successor.

Question, can the credit from these packs be used in the founder perks for this milestone?

I missed the chance to be a founder, but my husband and I both got the Launch: Deluxe Digital Edition. Any chance that we'll be able to get some credit in EM-8ER?

Sorry, but the deluxe digital edition does not count, it cannot be checked and wasn't made by Grummz nor is it related to him in any way.
In the Firefall account profile, there is a tab called purchasing. That tab ha a drop down which includes "Purchase History". You can then select the purchase made and "details". For example, I bought the "Package Name USD Digital Deluxe Edition" and "Package Name USD “Rocketeer” + "Racer" Bundle Pack". The details shows a time stamp, reference ID, amount, and a few other things. With all those details, they cannot be checked?
