    Not sure what math there is to argue with unless you somehow think $60 < $30.
    What he means: On the kickstarter (in the pledges) it is mentioned that the unity ultimate license will probably cost 149$ normally So everyone with a classic license will get a very good discount Rookies only have a bigger discount but veterans have nevertheless a discount (the reason for that is in in the FAQ of the kickstarter and the others here already mentioned it)

    I think the point is those who are being asked to pay $60 have owned FGC for longer, therefore have received more potential value.

    For example, if someone bought FGC for $100 ten years ago (I don't know the prices then -- I'm just providing an example), then you could suggest they've spread that cost over ten years, or $10/yr. Someone who bought it for $100 two years ago has only spread that cost over two years, or $50/yr.

    Hence the reason for people who bought it recently to pay less for the upgrade vs. people who bought it some years ago.

    As with anything, we all have to the choice to pay or not to pay. Smiteworks could charge $1,000,000 -- it's up to the buying public to decide if that's the right price or not. Given the success of the Kickstarter, I'd say they priced it appropriately for the majority of people who were interested in buying.

    My two cents...

    Everyone buying on the Kickstarter is getting a discount.

    Existing license holders get a BIG discount.
    And to help those newer buyers not feel buyers remorse they are getting a HUGE discount.

    My math might be off below

    2004 to 2019 = 15 years

    Ultimate License $150 / 15 years = $10 per year

    Or $0.83 per month. Or $0.03 per day

    2018 to mid 2019 = 1.5 years

    Ultimate License $150 / 1.5 years = $100 per year

    Or $8.33 per month. Or $0.27 per day

    There is a pretty good entertainment value over 15 years. The $60 Kickstarter seems like a great bargain. Especially considering there has not been an upgrade fee since 2004 to my knowledge.

    $60 / 15 years = $4.00 per year and it's all backward compatible. Awesome!

    So vote with your wallet and save the $60 now. Then pay $149 down the line.
    DMing since 1979. Ultimate License holder.

    Currently GMing:
    * Yggsburgh and Castle Zagyg - Castles and Crusades Greyhawk (Mon/Fri - on hiatus)
    * Temple of Elemental Evil - Castles and Crusades Greyhawk (Thursday - on hiatus)
    * 2e Greyhawk (Wednesday)

    Thanks for 7+ years of gaming via FG my friends (2e / 3.5e / Rolemaster Classic / Castles & Crusades / Pathfinder / Savage Worlds / 5e).

    There/Their/They're are all different words and do not mean the same thing.

    Screwed? What do you mean, you get an upgrade at Half price ( or less ). Now if you had purchased FG recently and paid full price and then had to pay it again you would be screwed. ( which is why the pricing structure is as it is, obviously )

    I am paying full price at $139 as I am a subscriber for a licence, and I am certainly not getting screwed.

    It amazes me how people do not comprehend the pricing structure, makes perfect sense to me.

    I have a couple of questions and did some quick searching but couldn't find any results...

    It looks like there is going to be an essentials pack for DnD 2.0 and 5, but no 3.5 (non SRD20 content)?

    Is there going to be a demo version released at the same time as the full version?

    SmiteWorks has a license for D&D 2E (newly acquired) and 5E (has had since ~Feb 2015), but not one for 3.5E. But, FG has a 3.5E ruleset and the SRD is available for it, and SW does have a license for Pathfinder, which many people consider mostly compatible with 3.5.

    Demo version of FGU? SW has stated that the licensing will be the same as it is now, so yes, their will be a free demo version available of FGU.

    If 3.5 is out this will be the end of everything.
    The past is a rudder to guide us, not an anchor to hold us back.
