I check CSI every morning to see what goes up for preorder. This thing went up and is literally sold out in less than an hour. Are they seriously shipping out like 20 copies to retail? Stuff like this is why I have moved farther and farther away from this hobby as time goes on.

I'm sorry to hear you're discouraged that a pre-order sold out so quick. I don't pretend to understand all that goes into supply chain management (especially when it comes to games) but it seems as though there are still pre-orders available at other retailers:

$101.99 20+ in stock @ MM
$94.99 3 available @ Bordlandia
$119 @ FunAgain (unknown stock)
$91.67 12 in stock at CH

Note that CSI often has more copies available at launch. As I understand it, retail often gets shorted on its orders when distributors can't fulfill demand. If CSI presells 100% of what it ordered, but only receives half that amount... then what happens?

So they pick a fraction and allot that amount as presales. But in most cases, they will get their allotment because they are such a large retailer. So look for them to have extras to sell when the game actually releases in October.

I check CSI every day also. I kept refreshing today because I was extra curious. This thing sold out so fast that I never even saw how much they were charging for a preorder.

I have seen this happen alot on CSI and then sometimes later in the week or even a few weeks later they get another wave to preorder from. Don't worry about it yet.

This is what I'm afraid of happening with the 3 expansions. I didn't get those in the KS because I planned to support my flgs with the business but I have doubts I will be able to get them.
