    AWESOME! I want to preorder! Also, Is there going to be a Step-By-Step tutorial on how to destroy blocks, fight and place blocks, the key tools you need, etc.

    See.., before the very idea of Preorder was brought up, I was just vulturing around the website, like a man afflicted of addiction for that scrumptious fix. Now that there's serious considerations of making Preorders available..?

    *Tapes money onto the screen* Fools don't realize you have to keep the money up there for abit before it phases through and all over the Dev teams wonderful selves. ALL OF MY YES, TIY.

    Yes, I would like Pre-order asap. but mabey not the beta so fast cause that kinda spoils the game, i want the 100% non beta version :)

    We've all been begging you to let us throw our monies at you for some time now. YES, yes, and a Thousand Times Yes. I've personally never been a fan of these tiered things. I think "Game" and "Game + Extras" is quite enough, as too much beyond that adds considerable workload to you guys, and that's the opposite of what we want by pre-ordering this. ;P Pick the payment service that let's you keep the largest share of the profit, and I'll be happy to get the game "When it Comes Out", as that has 'always' been my favorite development style. (I'd rather have an awesome late experience, than a crappy early one. :p)

    I would say a pre-order has high favour by this point. Tiy's twitter feed had a question about potential cost. Most folks seem to favour something between 10-15 dollars. So hopefully this means that we will be getting some more info here shortly.

    I think it would be a bad business decision not to have a pre-order.

    Preorder would be really amazing thing!

    I'd definitelly appreciate support for PaySafe Cards or atleast a PayPal... digital distribution through Steam would be the best! Carry on, I'm looking forward to play this (without a doubt) amazing game! :D

    I would probably preorder. I am not that interested in physical bonus goodies because I do not like relying on the mail to get them to me. I do like the idea of digital bonuses (the soundtrack, name a star, etc.). As for payment method, its gotta be something trusted and not too difficult. I do not like the idea of signing up for another obscure digital payment service. I would rather just wait for the full release on steam.

    Now after reading all 59 pages i wanna give my opinion and a short summary of the prefered payment methods here.
    First of all i would love to pre-order this game. I've been here since the news got posted on Terrariawiki and followed the developement from there on.
    Second my prefered payment+distribution method would be the Humble Store. I have already many games there, they have three different payment options (PayPal, Amazon and Google Checkout) and they offer to deliver Steamkeys as well as DRM free downloads.
    Paying through Steam would also possible for me(through the website), but i cannot download through steam, because I am behind a Firewall most of my time. So if it is possible to buy through Steam and download via Humble store or whatever that would also okay for me.
    Humble Store was also mentioned by many others here, the other most mentioned methods were Steam and Credit Card/Debit Card.

    Personally, I enjoy these kind of pre-orders benefits much more than any item or anything else you may get in-game. They feel more dynamic and impact more in my opinion rather than the same in-game item that everyone and their mother has because of the amount of people pre-purchasing.

    Talking about the Steam downloading issue you seem to be having, I have two questions: 1) Do you have Steam seen as a threat by your computer as a whole? 2) Have you tried "Port-Forwarding" to remedy that problem if your router has its own firewall (Which may or may not be the problem)?

    I had a similar problem with my router before I figured out how to forward the .exe through the correct port numbers.
    It may be something else, but those are two problems I have helped fix on a regular basis.

    If you need any help, feel free to contact me about the problem if you wish to discuss this further. :)

    You could always release the beta on Steam, and people could pay for it through that.

    I don't think many people would want to pay for a game through some site that's mainly for a donating kind of thing.

    I'll for sure pre-order, count me in. I'd prefer to pay through Steam or Paypal.

    Thanks for offering your help, but the problem is that I don't have access to the router blocking the ports, and my stepfather won't forward them.
    Also I do not see Steam as a threat to my computer, but it's true, that i dont like it much, since I have (and still am) experienced/experiencing how restricting it can be. But would I have full access to the Router I think would pretty much enjoy it.
    And it is not just a download problem, but it is even impossible to log in. I have bought Terraria and still had to play a pirated copy, since I was not able to download. Now that I'm at my fathers place I downloaded it, but when the next update comes out, i will be outdated and the only way to go on playing with my friends would be downloading a pirated copy again, same goes for diverse other games in my steam library. Thats why I prefere Humble, GOG or Desura, even with the most basic Ports - which would be 80 and 443 - you have full access to your games.

    I like the idea of pre-ordering directly with credit card and receiving a Steam key once beta is ready. Nice and clean!

    I've been lurking for a while, but finally registered specifically to give huge props for this:
    So many developers do a cash grab by making you pay extra to unlock that content, and I hate it. It shows a lot of integrity for you guys to reject that route - especially when some of your team are taking second jobs. You guys scored major customer longterm loyalty points with that one.

    Sounds good. Not that I'm gonna preorder, but if it helps the game come out earlier - I support that.

    I would definitely Preorder. Also, Paypal options work wonderfully!

    If you're on the router you can login to it, it's just that simple. There's a few ways around any protection he might have up, and if he's changed the password, there are ways to reset that as well remotely. But that's only if you are really in need of forwarding stuff on your router, I personally don't have to forward things on my Router(s) often, especially things like steam.
