I feel like they've been doing a great job recently on the updates. Also, I feel like any update they do give today (Friday) will likely come at the end of their day, before they're off for the weekend. If they still have more to do beyond today, and won't resume until Monday, I think it would make more sense to give the most up-to-date information. And that likely won't be for another 12 hours or so from the time of this post.
probably. lot of waiting time for international folk
I'd appreciate them continuing to work on shipping instead.
Yeah, we spent time to count and we've calculated that we've shipped 32% of this month's orders means... absolutely nothing.
you know they don't have to actually count them? (and it would mean they need two more weeks to ship the rest out)They could simply take a quick look in the data and see x Shipped / x pending
i work in a warehouse that ships a lot each day and we can easily see how much has shipped each day and how much is pending in the data. And i assume Paizo is using a similar system
Paizo is indeed more transparent with their issue and they are overall most forthcoming with a lot of things.Yet i'm relatively new to pathfinder, started with 2e and bought so far everything via pdf. So i have no attachments to b&m stores for this. And given the state of the world for the last year, increased online sales would be Paizos biggest income right now and going forward i guess. As it would saving them the cost for printing, shipping and storage.
So i can not agree that b&m are important for their future.
Being outside the US and not having any b&m store around for TTRPGs and similar stuff might color my view differently on this.

For sure. Yet here we have a delay of two months now, missing two months of sales, which will cost Paizo either way money.
Another delay for the first part of fists of the ruby phoenix? oh come on!
And for me who is a first time subscriber, who hoped to get the pdf version early (as i heared those who sub get them on occasion a few days earlier) it's disappointing as it not only affects me, but my whole playgroup who were so fired up to start with it.
I really hope Paizo learns from this and plans a contingency for their customers if something like this happens again in the future
Perhaps another solution (and a contingency for the future) is to print a small portion of the products more local to avoid disruption from the main source. after all there are many things that could go wrong in the supply chain.
This way Paizo could satisfy Brick&Mortar, although with a lower volume, while being able to sell at least the PDFs to customers.
It wouldn't be a solution to all problems that could arise, but at least some.
i subbed to the Pathfinder Society Subscription in march and it seems my first batches got messed up.
I got last Wednesday a mail confirming the order but have nothing in my downloads yet. And it says a previous order was moved to a newer one, while canceling one item from it.
Would really appreciate the help
Well, obviously the Players Guide doesn't include rules to build team encounters, as this should be contained in a GM facing product like the AP itself.
The Team Building Tables are more to flavor your players party a given way
