Stripe doesn-t have my country as an option. So I can't pledge? No paypal from beginning?

From what I understand, PayPal is most commonly offered for "slacker backer" pledges after a campaign is already concluded. This is because PayPal doesn't support the purchase of intangible goods (in this case, a game that has been pitched but not yet confirmed to be in development). This may be why InXile has not yet offered it for the Wasteland 3 crowdfunding campaign - at least not yet.

It may also have something to do with Paypal adding "Crowdfunding" to the list of things that are no longer covered by purchase protection. That's a change that was made to the PayPal policy as of four months ago.

hmm, hope paypal will, as soon as Wasteland 3 is funded (not that the campaign has ended, just that it reached its funding goal), be available just as it was with Wasteland 2 and Torment.
There were also a paypal option, after the funding goal was reached.
So i hope this is still possible when Wasteland 3 is funded.

It's certainly possible that Paypal will eventually be an option, but any holdup is likely to be on Paypal's end, not Fig's.

I checked again. It seems restriction I was talking about is only for receiving money. It seems I can pledge by giving credit card number without any problem.

Looks like they received additional investment. Yesterday the FIG page said there was around $1,4M remaining. Now it says only $1,055,000 remaining. That should be an easy target for the backers...

I recieved an email saying I'll receive a special loyalty discount of $5 USD towards any tier. Will we receive this when the campaign launches? Would be nice to use on an early bird tier. ;)

Yeah, I hope the email with that discount is in our mailboxes before the campaign launches, instead of being sent out "when the campaign launches"... because in the latter case, the early birds would miss out on the discount.

We're sending the coupons the second it goes live. Unfortunately we can't send them before it does because then the codes'll break. You won't have long to wait though. :)

Also, as a backup, you should be able to find your code on the Torment backer account page in case you don't get your email (only if you are a returning backer who's pledged to one of our games before). That widget should appear when the campaign goes live.

Can they be used after wasteland 3 pledge ($25) is made?

Probably, because it's an extra that you add to your pledge. It's just as an extra that doesn't cost money, but saves you money, so you can probably add it later while managing your pledge.

Pledged. And yeah, I used the link from the Bard's Tale IV backer page, as I (still) haven't received the email yet.

On a sidenote, I see they moved up the goal a bit... to $2,750,000. That should still be possible, right guys? Just give us a few days :)

The 2.25 was the investment cap. The funding goal was planned to be 2.75 from the start. :)

Still fuzzy on fig, you need a combo on investment+pledges over 2.75 million, but no more than 2.25 million can come from investors?

Since investors are, essentially, getting shares, it makes sense to limit them to cap the amount of outlay inXile has to supply.

so here is the thing, i tried to figure out how but i can not currently support you guys in any of the tiers above the first, which makes me sad but hell.

so can you guarantee that i can get the Digital Copy Tier (at least) after the campaign for the same price via your Portal? The Psychonauts 2 Fig campaign had issues regarding backers after the campaign due to the investors.

i didnt back WL2 back when it had its KS and it would make me sad if i would have to miss this one. Well the worst that can happen is that i buy it when it releases (and i can opt out if it is, as unlikely as it is, not something i would want to have)
