"As to Veteran Rewards in this game, you can count on it. As you can see from my rather intense interest in rewarding our backers, I think we should treat our veteran players in the same manner. It is our job to make a great game, keep updating it, improving it, etc. but CSE must also thank our veteran players in other ways as well and we will do that as the game evolves.
