Aussies have had Recon for a 5 days. They are off the next few days for the holiday, so the rest of the shipping will happen next week.

North America received Recon yesterday. They are processing the address labels and will start sending stuff out. I know they work over the weekend, but I don't know what that means as far as shipping Recon out in large numbers. We'll get an update from them Monday with numbers shipped.

EU 's boat is looking to get to port on the 5th. Supposedly, the issues that delayed the 2.0 materials have been worked out and Recon should be processed and shipped much quicker (and it isn't the Christmas season).

Have a wonderful New Years. Stay safe.

I agree with the sentiment. I have not looked at the newest rules, yet. Waiting to be surprised.

What happened to their statement that the US fulfillment center would only need one day to ship out Recon once they received it?


Because depending on who they are using to ship, some carriers aren't shipping. For example, UPS isn't doing normal shipping on New Years Eve.
It also wasn't MERCS statement, they clarified THAT was the info they received from the fulfillment company.

can i also point out how unreasonable it would be to assume this small team could move that many shipments in one day?

I agree, which is why I specifically told MCG that it was an unrealistic estimate at the time.


Which is why they specifically said that it was quoted from the fulfillment group when they said, "their words, not ours."

Either way; who says that a company (any company) starts a task as soon as stuff hits their dock,.... what if they are in the middle of shipping some other project? Even if the fulfillment company is able to do as they say and process everything in a matter of hours,... how do you know when they will start? and clearly not until at least next week.

Heck; they could have five or six other things that are ahead of MERCS,.... maybe they don't even get to it next week. This is exactly where you go wrong with unrealistic expectations,..... People ask for an ETA,..... and that's what the E stands for Estimated.

But it's funny,..... seems like you are going to be disappointed if you get it next week????? and you'll be happy if it doesn't show up until February so that you can get more entertainment out of giving it to MCG?

ah,.... I'll never get these 3 minutes back angry

Well from that update guess mines would arrive next week. I will for sure do any unboxing for both boxes. Like I did for another kickstarter game.
