I really thought it shall be different this time but it now seems even worse. Voice of Isengard was announced last August with the release for Xmas. Then it was late January I believe but I still believed at least the adventure packs would start coming out regularly with only a slight delay after the deluxe. Their opening pack, Dunland Trap, was announced to be out early Q2, this was still early in the year, so I again had a false belief that such a feat was more than achievable. Yet, May is now quickly waning and Dunland Trap is not out. The Road Darkens has for some time now been scheduled for Q2 but an experienced buyer of the game can hardly believe ffg to ever keep their release promises.

 

Are you, as me, down-hearted by this? Or are you (as me, Gollum-sided) relieved because you do not have to give ffg money so frequently?

I'm daunted by all the wait.

I'm patiently waiting and spending the money on other FFG's games.

Oh poor you. I feel already bad having spent so much on a game (though it is not as bad as keep spending it on car-repair, for instance), so I am glad Tolkien is my only virtue on ffg list.

 

Has anyone got an intel of the updated release schedule or is the "upcoming" page our best reference?

I don't mind waiting if they would just stop lying about when they'd because released.

There is a wonderful Radiohead song called Let Down. It is not very applicable outside the title, but it may still help us all, haha!

The 1st until the 3rd AP are supposed to be expected in Q2.

So says the almighty upcoming page.

Q2 starts next week, and the 1st AP is still in concept status?

That means: printer + boat ride + shipping = 3 months minimum.

For the 1st pack that is. AP 2 & 3 will not make it to the stores in Q2.

Don't expect the cycle to start before late Q2 (June) or Q3 people....

 

 

Posted this before Q2....looks like my prediction is coming true....

My long experience of FFG's missed release dates leads me to no surprise, or anguish, or anything. Basically, I've learnt to expect the packs to be released when they're released.

I think feast or famine will pretty much always be the rule for this game. Before you know it, we'll be talking about how we're getting flooded with packs and The Road Darkens and don't have time to play everything!

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
Wake me up when September ends

Like my father's come to pass
Seven years has gone so fast
Wake me up when September ends

Here comes the rain again
Falling from the stars
Drenched in my pain again
Becoming who we are

As my memory rests
But never forgets what I lost
Wake me up when September ends

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
Wake me up when September ends

Ring out the bells again
Like we did when spring began
Wake me up when September ends

Here comes the rain again
Falling from the stars
Drenched in my pain again
Becoming who we are

As my memory rests
But never forgets what I lost
Wake me up when September ends

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
Wake me up when September ends

Like my father's come to pass
Twenty years has gone so fast
Wake me up when September ends

Wake me up when September ends
Wake me up when September ends

I'm feeling this week for a shipping to stores announcement. 5/28 release date is my prediction.

 

Be patient everyone! It's an entertainment product not food relief to starving children in Africa!

Ok, so as long as it is not charity, the customer has no right to believe what the salesman has said?

You don't know salesmen, do you? I am one, and I tell you, don't believe a single word they say - except mine :D

 

Edit: Typo (as usual...)

I for one am getting really really over the wait...... I thought Dunland trap and The Road Darkens would both be out by now and I would be waiting on the next release....!

They really need to release products when they say they will..... these delays are awful, almost everyone on the boards is desperately waiting for the new cycle. I really hope they see all our complaining and push things along a bit, Q2 is almost 2/3 of the way over and the only product we will be getting before July will be Dunland trap... I bet all the Q3 products will come like mid to late September as well....

Dunland Trap is on the boat, Three Trials is at the printer but all the others are still in development.. I think we still have a solid month till we get the first pack but all the others seem to be taking a really long time. They definitely won't all be here by Qtr 2 if by quarter 2 they mean April-June ;)

It seems all these packs are getting more thought and polish to make them great but at the expense of delayed release which I'd much rather have a better product and longer wait.

If at least they chained the packs close together -- like one in three weeks or so after they finally get going. For a time I thought the adventure packs in the same cycle are all printed at once but that was most probably a misinformation.

AFAIK the cycles are being designed as a whole at once and then it is just the matter of continual releases.

Narsil I agree there are more important stuff in life, but they could just be honest about release time, it would be a good thing to do for your customers
