First off, I just want to say I have loved the content so far on twitch, and the behind the scenes content that have been in the $1 tier.
Second thing, I laughed so freaking hard at your new $1 tier, I almost fell out of my chair. "We heard your feedback, so the $1 base tier will remain. You'll still be able to access any content that was published during Year One at this tier." I don't think that's what we were saying at all. You're still moving all the content we loved to the $3 tier. It just seemed like the way you worded that was kind of a back-hand.
Alright, so what is it that we get in the new $1 tier. Feed Access which is basically a preview to try and convince us to move to the $3 tier? Really? That's a thing? The Monthly Q&A seems like something we would kind of get before in the forums that Adam would start up after every show anyway.
Sorry, I mentioned before that I'll probably get rid of my support on patreon if this was to happen, but not like that's probably going to change your mind. I see a lot of people are doing the same, but it seems like you're really trying to get this move from $1 to $3 tier pushed regardless, and I'm going to assume you knew this backlash was going to happen.
I did mention that I'd be fine maybe having a $2 tier instead for behind the scenes. I think that's doable, but you have to expect that everyone who is only supporting $1 doesn't have a whole lot of money to support, and are not going to increase their amount.
Here is my suggestions, have multiple low $ patreon tiers. Have a $1, $2, and $3 tiers. Maybe even one for $4, and $5. Give each tier something of worth. You have post shows, Character creations, and some other different behind the scenes videos that happen every once in awhile. Put each of these behind at least one of the tiers, and people are going to have the incentive to possibly raise up more as time goes on for just that 1 dollar more.
I hope this new tier system isn't final, but I guess time will tell.
