Hoping someone from Riot can answer this (Chris?)

Wondering what the total weight of the box is (including packaging)?

I got the dimensions from another thread (23.5 x 13.8 x 7.6 inches), but wanting to know the total weight to see if it is worth getting a mate to ship it over from the US

Just received my copy and the shipping label says 15.50 lbs. Hope that helps. It's massive.

I trust Michael. I seem to remember it weighs around 12.9 lbs without the packaging.

After doing a bit of research, and my mate in LA doing the same, it seems that there is actually no way to be able to ship this thing to AUS cheaper than what you guys are offering

If I didn't know better, I would begin thinking that you guys are taking a hit on (international) shipping just to get this game out to as many people as possible!!

Kudo, again, Chris.. your honesty (and bravery) astounds

Now to try and convince the wife that this is a good idea for an early Christmas present shake

Yup, we are subsidizing a lot of the shipping. Those subsidies are highest where the shipping rates are the highest.

I think it is easier to ask this here as all the posts about shipping are too many to go through. Sorry to be off topic!

May I know, when will countries that are still not listed in the shipping will be added... or is there no chance for them to be in the list any time soon? Not here to throw tantrums or anything negatives, just weighing my option whether to wait or find any other way to get this awesome game. I am from Malaysia by the way

We honestly don't know. It is something that we would like to do - and that we are working on - but I don't think it'd be helpful to make a prediction. Especially when there is a very real chance we won't be able to open it up to every region we'd prefer, even after expanding it.

I see. It's okay, I will find another option then. Thank you so much for the answer!
