Did Tome of Excess get lost at sea or something?

 




That eagre to declare that you're not buying the book, or anything from FFG ever again, for the umpteenth time, eh?
 

 

I've never made such a claim.

Tome of Excess is still overdue. There is no release for this scheduled so far outside of the US it seems.

FFG as a company have some considerable problems and ignoring these (look at the Dark Reign review for Hemmer of the Emperor) does nothing to fix them.

Dunno. Have had my copy for over 3 weeks and I live in Finland. So your statement is inaccurate.

Lucky me. Bought it from local retailer reir

But sure some books take abyssal long to come and some just pop up in store shelfs almost after they have announced that "(insert book name) is in stores now."

Warp travel is unpredictable truly.

Still no sign of a release in the UK.

 

And of course no interest or explanation from FFG.

 

As usual.

Amazon.co.uk carries the book so it'd seem to be released in the UK.

Amazon are far from reliable.

The book is not on Esdevium's release sheets and they are the only supplier to games shops.

Well I don't think that FFG can anyway speed up their shipments as they are not the ones moving them. FFG workers are not driving the deliveries to port and loading/offloading them to ships to get them to differend countries.

Once I got notification that my preordered book had come to local retailer shop and I was jumping with joy. After I got to said shop, they had to apologies me that it seemed that the whole shipment from FFG had to be send back. All the books and games in that one delivery were soaked because dockworkers had left that one in the rain for whole week as they where on strike.

So I was frustrated whit the dockworkeres for doing lousy job not FFG.

I just wanted to point these things up and if it seems I poured promethium on flames, it wasn't the intention. It just seems you have bad retailer shops and such in UK.

Did you think about why they were on strike? Showing support for thier fellow workers isn't what I'd consider "doing a lousy job" and this event  had the potential to catch your attention by making you think about individuals we seldom consider. I'm pretty sure their frustrations were greater than yours in this instance.

If those useless pukes let all that merchandise go to a loss because they were too lazy to secure it where it would not be damaged then yes, they did a "lousy job".

Also in the UK and I got mine mid last week. 

I did notice however that it went out of stock again pretty much straight away so I guess they only had very limited supplies.

Usually I find I can get most of the releases 1 - 2 weeks after the US release date.

 

Agree amazon is not worth ordering through.  Infact I'm sure I read there was deliberate FFG policy to supply Amazon last - which if true I think is a good thing to support the more specialised retailers.

 

Anyhoo seeing as you are still waiting for your copy I won't rub it in by saying I am enjoying the book so far.  ;)

Securing product is the company's issue here, not the issue of the striking workers. Those 'useless pukes'- as you call them - were willing to stand up for themselves and do what they felt was necessary, and I doubt being lazy had anything to do with it. Your attitude towards them is offensive.

No sign of Tome of Excess on Esdevidiums release list this week again…although the new Star Wars RPG and Only War book are on there. Could be this is another Deathwatch: The Outer Reach scenario…i.e. it doesnt get made available to gaming stores in the UK till a few months after its official street date.

It's not been released through proper channels. Amazon are obviously advertising an import.

Securing the product is the responsibility of the shipping agency once they take possession of said product. Once FFG releases the product to the shippers it is out of their hands. The fact that you cannot recognize this and follow up with appeals to emotion and whining about being "offended" says a lot.

OK, I used the word company to refer to the shipping agency, not to FFG. And I still say that it is the problem of the company/shipping agency and not of the workers - they are not the same. And you're being offensive again.

Ok, I'm going to try to help you with this...and in regards to your tender sensibilities and fragile psyche, I'll type slow. If the WORKERS (who are employed by the shipping agency) let the product stay on the dock and get wet, and said "hey guys, let's go on strike...oh what? This stuff? Psshh. What do I care, I'm on strike man!" Then it is their fault. I would've had a ton more sympathy for their "plight" if they had secured the product then went on strike. They have clearly, by their actions (or better yet...the lack thereof) that they don't care for their jobs. 

 

 Also, get it through your thick skull. I don't care if you're "offended". Your feelings mean nothing to me.You seem to think that crying how "offended" you are will somehow cause me to back off or change my argument for those lazy schlubs. It doesn't. So go wring your hands, or cry, or talk to your therapist, but know this. I'm not at all concerned for your feelings.

Or rather, that they care more for their human dignity rather than wage slavery.
