Changes To Patreon in 2016

Changes To Patreon in 2016

Written by Lauren — 11 Jan 2016

In case you missed it on either of our podcasts, we're changing our Patreon pledges in a big way for 2016 and offering some new goodies for our fans who choose to support us!

We posted up a feedback request post on Patreon last year and are taking in the information from the responses we received. Hopefully these changes will be more accommodating to you all with a lot of new rewards in store. We'll be continuing our pledge per episode model, but if you only want to support one of our shows (Final Fantasy Union or Kingdom Hearts Union), you will be able to set caps to your budget while also still gaining access to PBE and the monthly prize giveaway.

The giveaway will be for a FF Prize or KH Prize depending on your preference. We have a number of prizes like Type-0 HD cards, KH necklaces, or even some low-priced games, etc which will hopefully give you more bang for your buck.

Here are the new pledges tiers:

$1 per episode ::

- Access to Please Be Excited
- Name mentioned in the show write-up on KHU/FFU websites
- Shout-Out at the start of the next two shows
- 1 entry ticket into the monthly giveaway (1 per episode)
(Monthly Pledge - if you pledge for every episode in the month, you gain an additional giveaway ticket)

$2.50 per episode ::

- All of the above +
- Shout-Out at the start of every show + your Twitter Handle
(Monthly Pledge Upgrade - if you pledge for every episode in the month, you gain an additional 3 giveaway tickets)

$4 per episode ::

- All of the above + previous Monthly Pledge
- (Monthly Pledge) Patreon exclusive FFU/KHU button (badge)

Patreon Badges

$10 per episode ::

- All of the above + Bonus Tickets + Button
- (Monthly Pledge) Appear on either FFU or KHU in a new segment called "My Favourite Game", where you get to talk about your favourite FF/KH game in the series and discuss with us.

We've taken away Early Access as it just wasn't feasible for us anymore and we didn't feel it was worth it for you guys to have to pledge $10 to get your topic on the show, therefore that has also been removed.

You can check out the pledges on our official Patreon page. Thank you to everyone who has supported us thus far and that you'll stick around for this year's festivities!
