They decided to increase the page count by 15% right before COVID started effecting the US, and that was before they decided to add and start developing the lost rolls which definitely did get effected by outside vendor shut downs.

I also have to imagine creating something this visual slows down remotely opposed to being able to work together side by side.

And this is a Kickstarter by someone who (as far as I know) has never done a Kickstarter, nor a book. Just the nature of the game.

You'd fit more in two volumes.
In retrospect, this idea doesn't seem so dumb.

That way, we'd have the first volume before Covid hit, and the second volume delayed by Covid.

At least we'd have 50% of something instead of 100% of nothing.

That would be a pretty dramatic cost increase to produce and ship.

This is an extract from John's update of October 15:-

But if you read the Kickstarter update from January 2020:-

"Given that, we've made the hard decision to delay the release of the book until the fall of 2020.

We plan to wrap production and send the book to the printer by June. It will likely take two to three months for the printer to produce and deliver all the books to us, at which point they'll be packaged up and shipped to backers by October 31 at the very latest."

So..... if production is wrapped now - and the book has been sent to the printers - production & delivery will take 2 to 3 months, then the books need to be packaged up and shipped to backers.

So that means the books should be shipped to backers at some point between January 2020 and March 2020.

That's another 3-5 months added to the October 2020 ship date, providing the printer is open for business and doesn't experience any delays.....

It's gonna be a while still. It sucks if you weren't expecting this when the kickstarter began, but even without covid this was going to take a long time.

I'm still so excited for this, and my snow camo mask. Also I forget most days that I even bought them so whenever they do come I will be amazed.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
