How do you people already have WotR?


Pathfinder Adventure Card Game General Discussion


I thought the game didn't come out until the 27th. What's going on?


It is available eg. Online at hastings... Just order and be happy again!

If you subscribe, you get it *around* the ship date. Happily this time it means a bit earlier :)


Most of those with the game are direct subscribers with Paizo. Often subscribers will get the product before the street date, though not always. There has also been a report that Hastings is already selling it, though that is in violation of the street date.

Yea I picked mine up from Hastings yesterday. Amazon also claims it would be delivered Monday I order it, so it looks like they're likely selling it early as well.

I didn't know what the release date was, but I was definitely pretty sure Hastings broke it when I walked out of there.

Sometimes it happens, but 99% of the people who have it are probably subscribers (they frequently get the product early)

According to UPS website, mine's not scheduled to be delivered until Wednesday.

True with the adventure decks, but historically subscribing to the base set has meant you got everything late -- including all your other subscriptions.

(Paizo had pretty major shipping problems around relase for RotR and S&S. Hopefully that's not the case with WotR.)

Well S&S initial timeframe was problematic for everything PACG, subscription or not, base set or not, being the first time the new printer had to deal with a new PACG product (plus class decks). Runelords I would think was a pretty similar situation, I doubt they expected the customer base to be anywhere near what it ended up being (I didn't subscribe till between 2/3 of Runelords so I didn't even know they had problems releasing that). At this point they've got their bases covered and it appears to be going just fine. I don't know that two products is enough to call it "historically", especially with both having such major events to deal with.


I'm a subscriber, so it looks like I should be getting it soon?

Is 2 out of 2 better represented as "every time" or "too small a sample size" -- soon we'll know. It was enough of a trend that I *seriously* considered canceling my Card Game subscription for WotR for that reason alone. I was sure kicking myself when S&S came out and I hadn't done so even though I *knew* better.

Mostly didn't want to leave the statement unchallenged that subscribers always get things early, because that can lead to disappointment. Sometimes they get them early, sometimes they get them late. The reason to subscribe is for the promos, or the automatic nature of it, or the relationship with Paizo. Not for early access.

At hastings did you also get the promos?

Where are the promos from which appeared on ebay?

Have you gotten your shipping email yet? They started shipping on Tuesday, and are projected to finish shipping on 5/22. If you got your shipping email then it's left the building and you should have a tracking number.

If not, then hopefully they'll get to it soon. (Mine hasn't shipped yet.)

A good place to follow the process is in the Shipping thread for the month (Here's May's) in the Customer Service forum.

Hastings almost 100% would not have the promos, since one of them is labeled as a convention promo and should only be available at cons and to subscribers. I'd also think it's very unlikely that they'd even have the retail promo unless Paizo's promo distribution has changed. You'll typically only find retail promos at dedicated gaming specialty stores, if you find them even there. The promos on eBay are likely from subscribers.

Like Pluvia said, one of the promos was a convention promo so you won't find it at stores. My copy didn't have promos, but I subscribed to the Character add on deck so I can get the promos so I don't care.


Just got my Add-on Character Deck in the mail from my subscription! Now to wait for my FLGS to get my copy of the base set in....


Mine just says it's going to ship by 5/22.


Odds are it has shipped. See this post for an explanation.

Checked my shipping status.
It has made it to Colorado, so It should be here in the last half of next week.

UPS Says a label was created on 5/16, not that it has shipped yet. But I have seen it where things were in this state and I got the item before UPS had updated. Last night when I looked at UPS they didn't even have info yet for the tracking number, so it's moved one state at least. :)

I'm not in a hurry, when it gets here it gets here.


I got the box on my local store the last friday, in Barcelona, Spain!! Awesome!

If you know of somebody selling it before the release date on Wednesday, May 27, please let me know the name and location of the store. (We know about Hastings and are already investigating.)

I knew how much I cared about Paizo and PACG as I walked out of Hastings. When I see a video game or other media breaking release date, I think "Oh man this is awesome I can't wait to get home with it!!"

With PACG, I walked out thinking "Oh man this is awesome, I can't wait to get home!!... but I feel a little dirty doing this..." haha

Mine just arrived yesterday. Sleeved it and made the character decks....... so excited

*shifty eyes* I got mine in from Amazon today...

Thanks...

I am told that Amazon has already been corrected to taking preorders only.

I got mine today! Looks Awesome!


I got mine from Paizo today! All the way down to Mexico!

Yeah, I just checked and it's showing as pre-order only now. Whoops.

I thought it was odd that it came in before my subscription Character Add-on did... it's going to be a pretty, precious, paper-weight until Season of the Righteous starts anyway.


You guys are such dobbers!!

:)


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook Subscriber

I subscribe and mine arrived today.


I got my copy today in the great white north...we're sorta green now. Subscription has its benefits.


Mine is supposed to arrive Tuesday according to UPS.


Waiting for sightings of subscriber copies in Europe. Which makes it sound much like a rare migrating bird. With demons in it.


Has anyone seen any subscriptions in Europe yet?


I only subscribe to the Add-On, and that one I haven't seen yet. But my Base Set arrived at the post office yesterday, so I'm going to play some next week. (This is in Norway)

I think Kajehase reported his box had arrived earlier this week; I think he's in Sweden.


Cool. I'm not really bothered yet - I only make it 11 business days since it shipped, and my group is both halfway through S&S deck 5 and, apparently, "really busy all summer" - but I get a bit antsy when I know something is in the post and is untrackable


I actually got my add-on today


16 business days. Still don't think I should be worried...


FWIW, my char-add-on arrived a couple of days ago in germany


Finally snapped and pulled the trigger on customer service requests and phone calls to delivery companies. I think it's AWOL...


I wouldn't have made it that long. Hope you have it soon.


FOUND IT! Customs have it. Notification of handling fees never arrived.

Arrives tomorrow...

Paizo, Sharaya in your customer service is ace!
