Hi, my name is Chris. I have made a lengthy post on the Dirty Bomb forums about this particular subject that I am very passionate about.
I heard about Dirty Bomb a while back, I got a key to get into the closed Beta and loved every minute of it mainly because it reminded me so much of Brink, which I bought the special edition for. Back then the game wasn’t very popular and pretty quickly died out. I signed up for the newsletter in hopes that Brink 2 would one day come, and found out later on in the year that it would not.
A new game comes along, Dirty Bomb, and I found out that Splash Damage was behind it’s development which made me extremely happy. After entering into a match one day, I noticed someone had a Beta Fighter card with a unique loadout. And I wasn’t too upset at the moment because I thought that since I got a key for beta access from someone who was invited to it that I didn’t qualify. So I searched google for this loadout card and came across the “Founders” pack skins. I scowered the internet to find some way to purchase into the founders program and was disheartened to find that it was no longer purchasable and no longer accessable. Now I’m not asking for an obsidian card, or a founders status. I’m creating this post to ask if the founders skins will ever be marketed or attainable by those of us who signed up for the newsletter via Splash Damage, and just didn’t receive notification that this game was in development.
I wouldn’t mind paying the full price that the founders pack was advertised as without the $50 dollar discount. I would’ve totally felt comfortable buying into the founders program had I known about it as I thoroughly enjoy the games that Splash Damage makes. I also don’t feel that those of us who have supported Splash Damage in the past to miss out on skins we never knew existed for a game we didn’t have access to via the media coverage, or newsletter notification.
I’m only asking for the skins to be marketed, and I do not mind at all purchasing them as a “default” loadout card, meaning no augments, and no special card texts or cardback. Please I implore you to make these skins accessible again for those of us who missed out on them by simply not knowing about this game.
