Hey everyone, we are coming up on the last couple of days of the campaign, and as an incentive we are going to be giving away some AMD 290 video cards.

 

R9-290X-3_4.jpg

 

We will tabulate the results and the top 3 NEW referers will win a card and we will hand them out after the campaign.

 

 

The way it will work is that any new sign up beyond the backer number that is in the Kickstarter campaign as of this post will count. Anyone that drops and rebacks will not count - we will check !

 

When your friends back (for at minimum a game package) they will need to send an email with who referred them to:

contest@descendentstudios.com

 

Email should contain:

 

Subject: Referal Contest

To: contest@descendentstudios.com

Message: I (backer #<number1>) was referred by email address of whom referred them

 

And if you have been rooting for us since the beginning - have the folks you referred email us their backer number. One card each will go to the top TWO referrers overall - regardless of when they backed us on Kickstarter!

 

Additionally, each of the top THREE referrers who build our support from this point on will also receive AMD 290 Video cards!

 

 

Thanks,

WM

 

PS. AMD shipped 290s, so we had to adjust the title - still a bad to the bone free card !

Maybe a description of what the email should contain would make things easier for both you and the new backers? Here's an proposal:

 

Subject: Referal Contest

To: contest@descendentstudios.com

Message: I (backer #<number1>) was referred by backer #<number2>.

 

Where <number1> is the Kickstarter backer number of the new backer, and <number2> is the Kickstarter backer number of the person who referred the new backer. Or do you need Kickstarter names or email addresses?

Tell them it is simply prebuying the game and it is 50% off if they do that.

HOW TO FIND YOUR BACKER NUMBER.

1. Log into Kickstarter.
2. Pledge $$$ to Descent Underground.
3. Then on the top right click the down gray arrow by your profile icon. This will show your backed projects.
4. Click the gray view all button at the bottom of the list of projects you have backed.
5. A new screen opens up, Find Descent Underground and on the right side click the blue plus sign.
6. Once you click it a new screen opens and at the top you will find your pledge # 


7. Prepare for Funding Dance

Mmm this is tricky as it was a post from Eric someplace (maybe the CIG forums?) that put me onto the game so in that case I refer Eric! :lol:

Wingman, important question. For those of us who used a different email address on Kickstarter than on Descendent Studios, which one should the referred person use to identify their referrer?
 
As an example, I used email address ALPHA on Kickstarter, but email address BETA on Descendent Studios. Should someone I refer designate me by address ALPHA, or address BETA?
 
 
Thanks for running this contest, hopefully it provides an incentive for current backers to reach out even more! :)

I've been posting to FB and twitter, but as no one there has my e-mail.  I guess I'm SOL on the contest, but I'll keep sharing and hoping we make it.

I actually described my video idea in chat the other day -- with the whole "1995... D1 footage.  blah blah blah... the wait is over... new game footage!" and that's exactly the formula they followed.  So I claim at least half credit ;)
