    I think you misunderstand one important fact. FFG doesn't sell their games to you and I normally, they sell their games to the 5-6 distributors they have. They also manufacture their products "just in time", so the marketing they do is to ensure that the players goto the stores, who goto the distributors, who make their orders. It is only then that FFG knowing how much they need start to ramp up production. Producing maybe 10-20% extra to have product maybe stay on the shelves. 

    Seriously, if you haven't pre-ordered do so. This game is so much fun to play that even with a good 20% extra the decks may not last too long on the shelves. We may even see the game come out in waves over 2-3 months if it goes crazy and they have to push it out to meet the Q4 deadline but can't produce enough for the first wave to satisfy that initial demand.

    Unlike other companies that have only a few product lines, FFG makes a lot of new games, think about the amount on innovation in gaming and where it comes from. This innovation comes at the cost of not have the ability to accurately predict what they need, they probably go low, and once confirmed numbers are in they try their best to produce to that in a short a times as possible.

    I don't disagree to these facts. I preordered the game. maybe I can say, I will invest in this game. With what reward? Well you see, when a small amount of people, earns the ability to see the game, play the game with physical decks, get decks before everyone etc. somehow a company must be able to satisfy others too. When for example a new videogame comes out, lets say fallout. I will not get it directly from Bethesda. But if I preorder this game, I get something as a reward. Cosmetic item, a little pin maybe a book or something. Now what going on with keyforge.
    2/8/2018 Announcement happens with a number of 100+ decks to the attenders.
    6/9/2018 FFG updates (At the Printer)
    25/9/2018 Announcement of some events over EU (Earlier than everyone) 384 decks will appear there.

    Streams with deck unboxing are also on the way...

    And what about the customers? Are they the (general public) as I saw in an article? Are they secondary to the company? This marketing is tiring. Everyday we will get the chance to see new decks now with the streams and events. But we want to see no more. We want to play. So untill release we have to wait, while some, are opening decks. Is that cool? If you like it, its ok. Why not do a Worldwide release event? Is that bad as a suggestion? It is much better, I believe. And this would bring a lot more smiles.

  2. I believe that when you create a hype with an announcement, you must handle this fact well. So that this hype will stay the way it is.There is no need to create an additional hype. Some will get it well and some will not. So this type of marketing is a bit risky. For example. Now that we are all expecting patiently ,the game that was announced on August, we must accept a fact that some additional events are coming to create what? a Hype ver.2 ?

    Its a bit unfair. That is my opinion. I am not mentioning that, because of hatred or something more complex. I am really interested in this game and the whole universe etc. So I would like the same opportunities as a player and of cource as a customer too. I hope that the game goes well and stay on the top of Card Games for long. I wish the best to everyone.

    Just making this thread for people that also belong to the company, to see it and avoid same mistakes later on.

  3. Event for the US

    Event for some in EU

    What about the people that preordered, to take their decks a week earlier? Why making events for 300 people...when out there, thousands expect the release?
