 Hello you people that are people who live in the Forum.....

So as I am a Optimist Let’s play a game,

Everyone take a guess on the number of days until wave 8 drops.

 

I will mail the winner a ship or something..........

just have to remind me when it happens.

However many days until the Thursday before Christmas.

Then.

Going to agree with this but with the caveat that this won't be Wave 8, it'll be an SSD released outside of a wave.  So 175 days.

Wave 8 proper drops February 7th, so....224.

The gave me a cold shiver. Almost as bad as someone's kid drilling into it.

I'm hoping wave 8 will drop mid-February. Specific date the 14th, because happy birthday to me. Realistically, maybe May. May 18th.

So you don’t expect an announcement until February then?

I'd expect an announcement mid-January, followed by spoilers fortnightly for a February release. For a May release an announcement might come late April.

For Armada, it’s generally best to give a minimum of 8 weeks between initial announcement and release.

 

Again, it’s not perfect, but in generalities, we get an initial announcement when it’s “In Development”.  It remains there for 2-6 weeks. Then it is “at the printer” for 2-6 weeks ...

Then the big one... “On the Boat” is 4-12 weeks “on average”.

Detaiked articles tend to hit while the wave is on the boat, depending on how many there are, and iftenbtieards the anticipated end of that period, becaysevthen we have “shipping now” for 8-14 days, and then a Thursday Release Article.

 

Rounding down and using he low end, you’re basically looking at a guaranteed minimum 2 months between Announce and Delivery...  

I mean, we have some HORRIBLE outliers in our history, but never any less than that, and that is based on FFGs own targets for each of those timeframes.

Expecting less than that is folly, but one can be hopeful I guess ?
