There might be a bit of that because let's face it some people look to get around the system whatever it is.
I think there are more that are just not sure of the game yet and are still on the fence on whether they want to invest in it. There are still outstanding questions on how the crafting and the towns and politics are going to work. They've said they will address some of those in their upcoming information releases so I'm hopeful that will pull more people to make the choice to join the kick starter.
Personally: I decided to go ahead and put my support into the kick starter. I like what I've heard so far and even though I still have questions and I may not like all the answers I think it's a game worth seeing made and playing.
