A. Be in support of such a system. (assume it would have incentives and rewards much like Kickstarter)
No, I would not be in support of such a system. I believe that Cryptic is generating enough revenue in Zen sales and subscriptions to be operating in the black, and at this stage of the game, that is all that matters. The developers themselves receive NOTHING beyond the sallary that their contract with PWE covers, so even if a pledge system existed, it would be the PWE executives who get the money. And the developers work for PWE because Cryptic is OWNED by them.
B. What would you want to be in the list?
Nothing. Because it won't happen.
C. How much would you spend?
Not a dime.
D. What would you want the incentives to be? What would make you spend money on this?
Not a thing.
