They are 4 months late, right ?
Not so late for a late project.

Relax.

I have backed about 20 different projects now. Only 2 were on time. I also received every single one I backed.

I also work in a aviation electronics factory. I can tell you that a Kickstarter timeline for product realization is a fantasy number. So many things that can cause delays can happen.

None of our customers use Kickstarter for the record. My point is, the timeline is on us to meet. When the customer establishes a timeline to their customers, that's kind of laughable and that's Kickstarter for you.

I can also remind you of what you paid for. It wasn't the game. You paid for the development of a new product. Your reward will be a new game IF it becomes reality. That's right, it's a little like gambling but the odds are in your favor.

So again "relax", it will happen.

Get pissed off when they don't deliver anything, or only a third of what they promised...

As the ancient ROman saying goes, "Caveat Kickstarter"

They were late with Barbarrosa, also. It's not a bad thing, really. It just insures they are making sure to cross the t's and dot the i's

Yeah, I saw this coming a mile away after witnessing how Japanime handled the Barbarossa Kickstarter (why exactly did people think this one was going to be any different? Some folks are way too trusting...)

Anyway, the main reason I avoided this KS is because my wallet didn't appreciate the customs fees for Barbarossa, and they couldn't guarantee EU-friendly shipping this time either. So, I'll be waiting for retail instead (which will probably happen around 1-2 weeks before EU backers get their copies anyway, ha...)

Blast! The only reason I pre-ordered the game with scantily clad anime Nazi girls in suggestive poses was for the historical simulated accuracy! I am one embarrassed and fooled guy!

From my experience with kickstarters, most of the KS deadlines are unrealistic. I would rather have a delayed project then a rushed one any day.

One kickstarter I backed that rushed the project out the door had so many mistakes, game wasnt balanced at all, and overall there were so many problems with it.

in short I expect delays, almost prefer them for a better project.

Barbarossa is a really good Deck builder, looking forward to this one.

Side note... Think Hitler-Tan still has her square mustache? wounder where it is
