Sensible judgement would have it that you are right, pay less after release when you already know what others are saying about it than now. [Though...how long would anyone have to WAIT until a racing sim is finally available on STEAM or elsewhere for 10 bucks?]
But it's not that much either. 25$ is not 40 or 50.
If paying 25 is not too much for the poster and will get him something more than what he'd get with 10, why not?
And, correct me if I'm wrong, he doesn't have to be a beta-tester, he may want access to weekly releases but not have the time nor the inclination to post and discuss whatever he finds. Neither do we.
10 or 25$, he has access to something being developed, which is something that doesn't happen often in simracing development. Hmm, yeah, it may feel "unfinished", "beta", "alpha", whatever, but that is the nature of the access they are promoting and allowing for this project/product - it will feel that way, with all its typical traits for each phase, until it is finished and ready for release.
