War in the East 2 - Manual shipping

Post by Mantuvec »

Image

As announced in a recent Tea Time on our Twitch channel, shipments of War in the East 2 manuals proceed in date order.

We're trying to dispatch as many as we can with limited warehouse staff.
If you have pre-ordered your book, it will be shipped before the end of April.

Any order that arrived between release and today will be shipped in May, depending on availability. The final batch of manuals will arrive by sea in the warehouse around mid-May and will begin shipping on May 24th.

As soon as each order is shipped, the customer will receive an email notifying them of the shipment.

Mine's still stuck in the Suez canal then.

This is an excuse for me to avoid defeat by delaying the offensive.

But I am reading Alan Clark's "Barbarossa"

Did it really come out in 1965 - barely 20 years after the events.

My book was shipped on 4-27 and it's 5-13 and still not arrived. I'm in the states. Nevada. Before the Slitherine merge, Matrix had a warehouse in Oregon and my physical orders took a few days. Why does everything come from Europe now?!

Just one thing I don't like about the merge.

I changed to the faster one after Erik described the two options. DPD Air Classic is what it shipped.

I ordered the same slower shipping and ordered mine on April 7 still haven't heard anything yet so you might have a little wait. (How did you change the shipping service?) I am curious as to how this is done as well.

I bought the digital with physical upgrade on the 17th April iirc, will my manual be shipped this month (May) or are the manuals produced based on sales as they come in and so it will be later for me?

The second batch of manuals has arrived in our UK warehouse, but has just started shipping. It will likely take a couple of weeks to ship out all the remaining orders.

I'm sorry that some of you have had to wait, and it sounds like the backlog should be cleared up in the coming weeks. Matrix is doing the best they can. Given worldwide shipping delays these days it's not surprising that the part of the manual order that was shipped by sea took longer than expected. They've also said given Covid protocols they can only have so many people in the office shipping manuals at one time. Matrix went above and beyond with their support of the production of this huge manual and I think you will be very happy with it once you get it. We appreciate your patience.

I ordered a fence panel on May 1st and was told it was expected to be in by 12/25/2021! He said there were just not enough workers in manufacturing. However, the part arrived on May 18th so that was a blessing and much sooner than expected.

I can't wait to receive it. I am a little worried about the condition it will arrive in. If it is ripped up how do you go about getting a replacement?

Hi guys,

Well, unfortunately we couldn't ship them out before we received the second shipment, which arrived a bit later than expected.

As far as damage, hopefully the new packaging will avoid that case, but if your manual is significantly damaged during shipment you can contact us at support@matrixgames.com for a replacement.

Regards,

- Erik
