Shipping Update
Posted by CMON (Creator)

Konnichiwa, honorable backers.


We have good news to tide you over the holidays. All KS pledges have either already been shipped to the distribution hubs, or are about to be shipped. Everything is moving as planned, as we should be able to deliver Rising Sun to you ahead of the original schedule! Here's the info on the ships that will be bringing the Rising Sun:

USA Hub

Ship: YM UPSURGENCE
Containers: 4
ETD: 04/Dec
ETA: 06/Jan
-------------------------
Ship: VIENNA EXPRESS
Containers: 4
ETD: 12/Dec
ETA: 15/Jan
-------------------------
Ship: HANGZHOU BAYBRIDGE
Containers: 6
ETD: 18/Dec
ETA: 20/Jan

Canada Hub

Ship: ANTWERPEN EXPRESS
Containers: 2
ETD: 22/Dec
ETA: 19/Jan

Australia Hub

Ship: YM KEELUNG
Containers: 2
ETD: 21/Dec
ETA: 04/Jan

EU Hub

Ship: APL CHANGI
Containers: 2
ETD: 20/Dec
ETA: 14/Jan
-------------------------
Ship: AL NEFUD
Containers: 7
ETD: 25/Dec
ETA: 18/Jan

Asia Hub

All packages will be mailed directly from the factory in January.

-----------------------------------------

Keep in mind once the shipments arrive at port, there is still time required to unload the containers, take them through customs, drive them to the distribution hubs, and then have the hubs mail out each package to their owner.

Strength and Honor!

Re: Kickstarter update 49: Shipping Out!
goo Today's update was significant enough that I thought I'd copy it here, for those who want to discuss it, and anyone who is not a KS backer but is interested in the progress of Rising Sun's availability.

This is basically a notification that the container ships have/are/will be leaving China for all other worldwide distribution points.

Re: Kickstarter update 49: Shipping Out!
So I'm curious what other people in Canada estimate for delivery. If it arrives in Canada on Jan 19th, I'd guess give it about a week for customs (assuming it's not randomly selected for inspection), then another 2 weeks to ship out and arrive at people's doors. Or am I underestimating here?

Can't wait for this, the game will arrive early (though still in February, the ETA is for the hub and not for the arrival in your country even).

Re: Kickstarter update 49: Shipping Out!
To be honest, I am very surprised when they announced this news. I think it will take them at least a month to sort things out before they sent the shipment. Probably take 120 days to reach your home (US)

Re: Kickstarter update 49: Shipping Out!
Maybe I misunderstood it wrong. Does it mean that it will arrive in less than 2 weeks?

No, you are absolutely right. Not all games are on the boat yet. Even when the boats arrive, it will still take anything between 1 and 34* weeks until the games finally reach our homes.

Edit: Based on previous experiences, I rolled a D100.

Re: Kickstarter update 49: Shipping Out!
Ok:

Most games have shipped, some will in three days.
They will arrive in January.
They will have to go through customs.
They will have to be shipped individually.

We can expect them to be delivered to our hands in February.

Re: Kickstarter update 49: Shipping Out!
I’m hoping they get busy early so I can have mine by the middle of January (about a week to travel from China).

I'd add another week.

- One week for customs
- One week for general handling/organizing/mailing by the hub personnel
- Two weeks for delivery (some packages will arrive earlier in this period, some later)

So I'd expect the game in Canadians' hands somewhere between February 5 and 16.

Yeah, I’m excited too. For once, living in Japan makes us high on a distribution chain!

Same here. I am leaving the state in 30 days. It will be great if I receive it before I go

Re: Kickstarter update 49: Shipping Out!
Does "All KS pledges" include those from late backers?

From what I have heard that depends on how late your pledge was. Hard to tell before it arrives. It will be a parcel from Gameslyn (UK) probably delivered by DPD in Germany. Get an account with DPD to be notified as CMON likely won't post a tracking number.

A week ago I added the coins and the expansion, it took my money. It also let me finalize(it wasnt this word) my address. I read on here that means I am hosed. My first Kickstarter /shrug. I messaged the Rising Sun facebook account and it told me to put in a ticket. Its been a week and I havn't heard anything. Im a lot more tempted to call them now, although I will probably wait till the middle of next week. Here's hoping they have extras.

I finally got a response, seems like Ill get the Diamyo copy everyone else will receive(base game with KS stuff). It'll just be shipped out in the order they received their confirmations on the addresses. It never answered my question about the extras though. Put in another ticket to get that resolved. I personally don't see why not, I would think they would have a lot extras anyway, but I guess Ill find out.

For Blood Rage at least, CMON was pretty terrible about clear communication to late backers on when thier copies would arrive. Some did in fact get theirs in the first shipment, but many others (like me) got ours in a later shipment (several months later) after being told we were in the “first group” multiple times.

I would say be patient and just don’t let yourself get too excited as a late backer; but also yours might just show up with the first shipment to regular backers, so don’t be pessimistic either. Ya kinda have to go with the flow as a later backer and remind yourself that they really do want to get you your game as soon as they can; but they will prioritize the regular backers who got thier pledge manager in on time.
