Any word on when this is actually going to be released? Specifically for the Kickstarter packages?

I beleive the last update stated the end of October, though it wouldn't shock me to see it pushed again.

I had 6 KS projectes all estimate for September 2013 delivery and not a single one came through. I think folks need to start padding estimates by a few months.

Kickstarter Update 54 wrote:
We've just completed a thorough review of the project and there are a couple of things we needed to adjust:

1. The plastic terrain won't fit in the core box - the whole thing becomes just too big to put on a retail shelf. All backers will still get the plastic terrain for free, but the retail box won't include them - they'll be available separately. What will be included will be a set of card counters as originally designed, and backers will get that as well.

2. The clip on damage markers are trickier than we expected, so we're doing some more work on the tool so that it will work better. The scope of the add-ons is adding more time than we anticipated, mostly in the moldmaking phase which needs to get done correctly. This means the schedule has to be revised:

a. Shipment 1 will only include the core box and possibly the plastic terrain, and will most likely complete production in October and will likely ship from our warehouses in November.

b. Shipment 2 will contain everything else, all the free items and optional items including the Battle of Brighton and the heavy tanks, and this will go out as scheduled in Q1 2014.

We apologize for the 2 month delay, but felt this was necessary in order to ensure that Rivet Wars you receive is a solid product. We'll update again as the project progresses.

As usual, if you have any concerns about your specific pledge, please email kickstarter@cmon.com and we'll get back to you in about one business day.


Emphasis mine.

A few to many most likely and will likely for my liking. I have no regrets with jumping in on this campaign as I believe this will be a great game...it is the wait that makes things hard.

My concern with all of these Kickstarter campaigns is the fact that it is becoming more and more the norm for these games to get pushed back and longer waits ahead. Yes, I fully agree I would rather wait a bit longer for things to get done right however it can not be ignored that as stated before, it is becoming more of a norm for these games to get pushed back.

Game on;
-John-

Just to be clear, taking longer to publish a game does NOT mean that things will be done right. It could just mean it took longer, and things were still not done right! whistle

Am I reading the current updates correctly? Are they expecting to have the game to us in December/January?

That is how I'm reading into it. I like that CMON is finally offering something (6 new free figures (2 different types)) for their delay in shipping. I haven't seen them do this for their other games that went out late. I'm happier.

What does not help matters is when the lines of communication break down. From my understanding, and correct me if I am wrong here, the November 15th date to ship to CMoN is not going to happen because of a quality control issue. Nothing serious and from what I understand it was for the better of the game. Sounds good and happy they were able to catch this and produce a quality game.

However this was posted before November 15th and we are now fast approaching December 15th and no news on where we are at this point. This is what scares me. It use to be that no news was good news but that does not apply here. No news means we have come to a stand still or worse...another delay that we have yet to be told about. Yikes! I had a gut feeling this was not going to be to us by Thanksgiving and now with no news and December chipping away...I am feeling that our chances of a Rivet Wars Christmas are getting dimmer and dimmer (however I do believe and will keep hope in my heart that I will be able to bring this to my table on Christmas Day...I DO believe, I DO, I DO, I DO.).

This is exactly what they did with Zombicide, and exactly what they have just done with Relic Knights. Fortunately CMON deliver good products, unfortunately their communication with backers is poor, especially when they have bad news, and often they just post vague updates with no real information.

They've posted another update indicating to have your address confirmed by the 9th and they will begin shipping on the 15th of December.

I think December 15th is the base game (same as you'd get in retail) and the expansions and Kickstarter extra figures are second wave next year.

Fine by me, gives me time to get some play in with the base game before I start expanding it with the extras!
