    Do you try to balance the teams? Or is it possible that one has 80 and another has 0?
    Each player picks their own faction so it could be unbalanced, but it usually works out to be fairly balanced. I have not gone through the surveys yet (they are still coming in) to see if that's still true though.

    We're around 88 right now, but I'll be selling kits for about a week more and will have some during the show. If anyone missed the kickstarter and are interested in getting a kit, PM me.

    I can't believe I forgot. I was gonna get one for me and one for my brother-in-law. It was fun last year the day or two we played. Sadness.
    No worries, PM'd you with how to get some kits.

    @Marschelios had said after the kickstarter finished there would be other ways to get the kits, but I would double confirm with him.

    I'm happy to report that Faction selection within my group of friends is creating chaos and discontent and emails that include "I cannot cavort with the enemy" and "you're not a Sparkly Pony and therefore are dead to me". It's a beautiful thing :)

    PM'd you. :)

    Anyone who backed the kickstarter (and responded to the backer survey) or paid through other means has their kits in the mail. Please let me know as you get them! For anyone interested in playing please note Kingsport Raiders are sold out.

    Any chance of a breakdown of faction populations? I'm just curious like that.

    Well if its true the missions will prefer other factions looks like I will have plenty of targets (Cowboy Verse ftw).

    As a question based on the update you sent @Marschelios, since missions will be handled via the website, how will this work with the potentially horrible connection within the BCEC?

    The missions shouldn't show a bias towards any one faction, regardless of the players within it. It's been set up to not give you a mission that targets your own faction, though this does not mean you can't do that just that you won't ever get double prestige for it.

    You'll need some way to access the site to confirm a mission and receive a new one. I'm working on the android app which should make it less data intensive to do that.

    Not for this game but I hope to have one ready for future games.

    Nice thanks! I try and shoot for the best kill possible. I shall try and avoid killing off my team though.

    Yea I was hoping you were still planning the android app. If you would like any feedback or help testing it out ahead of time, I would be happy to help, just send me a PM.

    Just got my boyfriend's and mine in the mail! Noticed that we have different colors on our badges... assuming it's so you know who your target is?

    and redfield.... what do you mean about the envelope for the Pokecrawl raffle? Do I need an envelope?! AHH!

    He just put the one we are raffling off at the Pokecrawl in a spiffy envelope is all. Nothing you need to worry about. Ha.

    Yep! There are 4 different colors and 8 different shapes used on the badges. Your mission specifies a specific set of colors/shapes along with a faction, with one combination being worth more prestige than others. Here's an example of how that will look on the site.

    Speaking of the site, I'll be turning on user registration this weekend so you can create an account and register your badge.

    Hooray! I'm so glad you like it!

    Thanks! I have a lot of fun making these things look as nice as I can. Lol, I had a much better image in my head for how that would look but ended up with what I am calling a Derpalope.

    @MarsChelios Will you be selling Assassins Ball packs on the show floor like last year? I got my PAX pass after the Kickstarter ended but I still want to join in the fun.

    Thanks!

    Woo! Got mine in the mail today! I was starting to get worried, the envelop was a bit mangled due to an issue at the post office and "automated processing" but the kits came through fine!

    I have mine! *throws glitter* You all shall be sparklies!

    Question: I'm confused about if the android app is an actual app or if we should be using the website now that it is cell phone friendly. If it is an actual app, I want to get it downloaded before PAX.

    The app is an actual android app. It still communicates with the website but should need less data than even the mobile version of the site. It's not available for download yet but should hopefully be available soon.

    Edit: Just wanted to clarify that the app may not mirror every feature the website has, at least for this game. At the least it will allow you to sign in, register a badge and confirm kills.

    I assume we can't register kills until Friday? Just curious because my brother-in-law and I registered tonight and didn't see anything for it yet. Not that I am going to kill him today/tomorrow. I have to wait until we get to the convention. >:)

    So disappointed that I didn't pay more attention to this. I just read about it and it sounds like so much fun. Oh well. There's always next year.
