It will pop up on your doorstep unannounced. I got mine yesterday.

If you check your credit card account activity, they will usually hit it a few days before your package arrives. They charge when they ship.

Still patiently waiting for mine, but I'm in another country so who knows when I'll see this, J8 or the WO special pack.

This is a blatant example of frivolous geek gold spending.

Still waiting. And I even called to ask about my order with, of course, no response from MMP.

Even though it is a challenge to wait with no info, I still support the pre-order process because 1) it is cheaper that way, and 2) I am helping to actually get the game in print. It's worth the crap, but this one is sure taking a long time!

still waiting, thought I was late getting my pre-order in. I'll probably be the last guy on the list.

From MMP's site:

Quote:
Maryland was hammered with snow over the past weekend, with our office receiving over 30". Since this is more than Maryland may see an entire winter, you can imagine the problems the state has clearing roads and getting back to work/school. So, we are likely to be closed the first few days of this week.

Please be patient as we strive to ship preorder copies of Doomed Battalions, Journal #8, and the recent rush of orders for the Winter Offensive Bonus Pack.

Thank you,
MMP

For the record, I'm still waiting for mine, as well.

Mine arrived last night. Since I am only 2-3 shipping days away from MMP they must still be assembling and shipping preorders of DB3.

Mine arrived in downtown Sydney yesterday, which is not bad given the distance. My card got charged on 17 Feb, so that is presumably when the package departed Maryland, USA.

Yep. My Winter Offensive pack arrived yesterday. Still no sign of Doomed Battalions, though.

Patient man is patient.

I got mine yesterday. I know the storm messed them up, and I ordered it pretty late, so I guess I shouldn't complain TOO much. I always prefer some announcement from the company, though. MMP never stated that they were even shipping it. They could at least drop a note on the website to let people know that it should show up in 3-4 weeks.

Oh well. It is MMP. I'm excited to play this stuff, though. It looks like some fun scenarios to introduce some new stuff like horses and motorbikes and the like.

This also means that my collection now has MY FIRST OVERLAYS!

We just got our shipment here 10 minutes ago. So just about any individual in the US who pre-ordered from MMP should have received the game by now. If you haven't, then check your credit card for a charge. And if there's no charge, then there's been a problem.


Cheers,

PS: And of course if you ordered from Wargame Depot, we'll be shipping it out tomorrow!

Looks like there's been a problem then as I'm still waiting for my copy and I have been charged for it. Time to e-mail MMP, I suppose.

Akiva,

Since you were charged, I would assume that the game is on the way to you. You might want to give it a couple more days. MMP probably shipped the games to us on Thursday. If they shipped it to you on Wed or Thurs it might be another day or two to get to Washington state.

Note that in my previous post I said that if you were NOT charged then there is a problem.


Cheers,
Jason

Oh, I understood your post but just because I was charged for it doesn't mean that there hasn't been a problem with shipping it.

Keep in mind though that MMP relies on pre-order counts to determine when and if titles get put into production. Plus you get a nice little discount on the title, too.

I'm fully supportive of MMP and have yet to have a negative experience with them. I don't even consider this a negative experience. For me, it's just a little prodding rather than a complaint.
