Web shop titles changed

Okay, so we messed up, and forgot we mentioned the titles were exclusive to Kickstarter backers :( To fix this, we're changing the webshop titles to Recruit / Militia / Mercenary (vs the KS ones that were Conscript / Sellsword / Knight). If you prepurchased on our webshop and feel cheated by this change, you can request a refund by mailing us at [email protected] and we'll sort it out.

Do note that due to how the titles work, if you purchased via the shop and picked e.g. the Knight title on the forums, it will stay until you try to change it, at which point you'll see the new titles rather than the Kickstarter ones (and won't be able to go back).

Will the kickstarter backers also receive these new titles?

I know, right? This whole thing was taken care of in about a day wasn't it?

If we are lucky this means Triternion will be able rake in plenty more money!
The new titles looks rather snazzy!

No, least we can do is have the pre-purchasers keep those as exclusive :)

Oh I just spent $10k but I don't deserve this title that somebody who only paid $25 gets.

Fair decision. Both groups have their exclusive this way.

Lucky for the people that pre-purchased and get to keep the Kickstarter title, but I guess that caters to the people that wanted to pledge, but couldn't somehow. Sort of a blessing in disguise.

As a kickstarter backer it actually makes me feel more "betrayed" that they have new exclusives compared to same ones.

If the point of this is to be able to distinguish between kickstarter backers and later purchasers wouldn't allowing the KB backers these titles blur this distinction?

Pull that stick out of your ass, Baroness. Did they advertise these new titles in the Kickstarter? I think not. You get what you paid for, exclusive Kickstarter titles. If you want the new titles, better spend some more dough. Welcome to capitalism.

I think it's for the best that the new titles are shop-exclusive. This way it will be obvious to anyone, who backed Mordhau on kickstarter and who bought it from the shop.
I think Marox handled this effectively and elegantly.

Not so many devs would openly admit that

If you don't think that even the god emperor deserves the recruit title, then that is your opinion.
But I think it is ridiculous. While I do realise that they never promised anything and actually aren't obligated to do anything, they don't lose anything by giving the people that paid more/earlier the title.

If the god emperor wants those titles for whatever reason, he may acquire them by increasing his total contributions by .6%

The point was that you should be able to distinguish who backed on kekstarter and who bought in the webshop.

I think that right now the situation is resolved fairly.

Wait so you want ks ppl to be able to get regular titles aswell?
But why?
