There's no pre-order for this?

No pre order. You buy direct from the LOL merch site. Riot have said they will print the number of games required to meet demand, so if the first run of 30,000 copies sells out then rest assured you will be able to get a copy in 2017.

This call was mine and it might have ultimately been the wrong one - so if that ends up being the case, I apologize for that. I'll try to talk about how I came to it, though, I fully admit that not having pre-orders is a bit non-traditional.

The thing is, in the video game world (or at least at Riot), preorders are seen as a toxic tactic that benefits companies at the expense of players. And since we have a limited amount of units at any one point in time (as all physical products share that constraint) there was a very real chance that people would rush out and pre-order without having enough time to understand the game we were selling. Placing their order quickly based on 'hype' instead of 'context'. The same way I wanted to give reviewers a few weeks to play the game before they rushed out their review, I wanted to give players a few weeks to read through those reviews to see if MvM would be right for their game group. MvM won't be for everyone! And I'd so much rather us sell it to people who it was a fit for than people who felt like they had to buy it right away before the hype train passed them by. We intend to keep making units as long as their is demand.

If you've read through what you need to feel confident in your purchase, we'll open up sales for everyone on October 13th. But between now and then, read through the stuff here and from whatever outlets you trust and try to make an educated call on whether MvM would be a fit for you and your game group.

That is an excellent response, hard to disagree with that.

Australia/ NZ still purchase from the US Store, I believe. The shipping is pretty brutal (though, more subsidized than anywhere else we ship).

For all regions, if you click the "Purchase Now" button at the top of www.mechsvsminions.com, it should send you to your local store.

Hi Chris.

Thanks for responding so quickly.

Tried that and I can only select Canada or USA as the country for the address. No other countries available in the scroll down selection box.

Country is, however, a required field.

Once you get to the shop, you should be able to change shipping region by clicking the flag in the top right corner.

Hey Runtsta

Thanks for the assist. Very much appreciated. Got it sorted now.

The shipping is pretty hideous as Chris stated. $50 American. 2/3 the cost of the base product in shipping.

So all up $126 American.

Is it worth it?

If it wasn't Riot producing MvM, the materials alone would push the game price to at least that, more likely even more. It my not be such an insane bargain as the "non-import" price, but it's still a fair price. You might want to check if you'll have customs due, as well, though.
