Please don't take this the wrong way, but how you guys have set up your pledging is super confusing. When I go to see if I want to pay to play your game and pay for the $60 Contributor pack I first off notice that there is no such indication that you have to subscribe up front, which to me is dishonest, only after searching around did I find that I would also have to pay for a subscription. Also if I did buy the game for $60 and I did not know that after I paid for the game I would now also have to continue to pay a subscription I would be very upset especially how the subscription information is hidden away.
The next thing that I would like to say and ask, is if I were to buy the game I see that I would receive 3 Dual Access Coupons with each coupon equals 30 days of free gameplay. So what does that mean? is that 30 calendar days, or 30 days (30 x 24 = 720 hours) of time I spend in the game? So if I login and play for 4 hours do I still have 716 hours left until I need to use my next Dual Access Coupon?
Also it says that I can use in game currency to buy more Dual Access Coupons. Does that mean I can grind and work in the game to pay for a new Dual Access Coupon without ever having to spend any more real money on this game, or does that mean I use real money to buy in game money to then buy more Dual Access Coupons?
And finally the last confusing thing, is if I buy the game now it says "The game Server may only be available during specified testing periods. The dates & times of upcoming server tests can be seen at the top of the DU homepage or on the server status page ." I than clicked on the the server status page link and it said that the access start date for Alpha 2 is on November 28, 2019 - 14:00 UTC (which is tomorrow) through December 02, 2019 - 14:00 UTC for only 96:00 hours, and if I Pledge now I can get access now even though it says it starts on November 28, 2019 - 14:00 UTC (which is tomorrow). Also does this mean that if I pledge now I only get to play for 96:00 hours, or does it mean I have only 96:00 hours to sign up until I can not get access to play until the next window of opportunity to pledge and start playing the game?
Please help me understand these questions.
