    Is there an Founders Program planed?

    When will the store open? What will the exchange rate look like, meaning how much of the ingame currency can we expect per €/$ and is there some sort of special Founders Program planned for Alpha and Beta testers?

    soo basiclly i´m asking.... when can i start throwing my money in the game???^^

    You will be able to buy Runestones once we hit Beta, which is Soon(tm).

    The current exchange rate is 200 Runes = $1 US, with discounts at higher quantities.

    There will be a Founders program that is not exclusive to Alpha/Beta Testers (e.g., players who want instant access will be able to buy in early) but will certainly be available to you guys.

    We are planning on rewarding Alpha testers in some permanent way separate from the Founders program.

    That is a nice exchange rate Corey. GJ

    Beta soon :| That is so soon. But then there will be more players and more players means more games and more games means more money
    More money means more items,
    More items means more killing

    What is the date of the CB release or what month you are planning for?

    Sorry to say this Corey, but I think Blizzard already trademarked soon

    Especially the exchange rate(AWESOME) and the whole rewarding alpha players in some permanent way(DOUBLE AWESOME)!

    A founders program would be cool too, depending on whats offered with/price of it.

    Uh, because I'm happy
    Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
    Because I'm happy
    Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
    Because I'm happy
    Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
    Because I'm happy
    Clap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do

    I think that's a very fair and decent exchange rate you got going, but what would it be for the UK/EU if you don't mind me asking?

    As for the founder's program, will it be tiered? As in Bronze, Silver, Gold, and if you purchase Bronze, you can upgrade to Silver or Gold to get the extras? (which I prefer)

    Or will it be similar to Neverwinter where it was tiered but you couldn't upgrade and each tier had something the others didn't. (which I disliked)

    Permanent reward for Alpha testers? Colour me intrigued.

    I'm looking forward to it. Personally, i think a special skin would be cool. A limited number of players will have it, it won't affect gameplay, and as people stop playing or more players come it will get even rarer.
