    You're later than me. I'm backer 7901 (you're 8640, right?), but I've heard nothing. Not even the 1-3 weeks email. I'm in the UK though, so that might affect things. People are also saying the kickstarter ordering might be related to when the survey was received rather than your backer number. I got the email saying they'd received my survey on Tue, Jan 5, 2016 at 4:01 PM.

    In any case, I'm really pleased for everyone that has received their CV1 so far :)

    Nope, 7xxx here and nothing barring the SHIPPED status, which is now 22 hours old. I'll believe it when I see it.

    I just got an order update email (Fri, Apr 1, 2016 at 6:55 AM BST) and my status has changed to 'Shipped.'

    Hi John,

    Your order has been processed and your Rift is almost on its way! Look for a shipping confirmation email with tracking information soon.

    Please keep this email handy for reference. If you have any questions or concerns about your order, please contact Oculus Support.

    I'm KickStarter backer 7901 from the UK (Scotland). I got the email saying they'd received my survey on Tue, Jan 5, 2016 at 4:01 PM GMT. This is the first communication I've received from Oculus related to my order since then.
  • You're likely looking at sometime next week, my order went to Shipped about 30 hours ago and theres been no sign of a tracking number. I've raised to a support ticket to find out whats going on, as I'll need to ensure someone is at home to receive the package should it ever appear. Shipped to me implies its been given to the distribution partner and I'd have expected a tracking number within a few hours.

    Given that it's Friday and they're using UPS, I'd assumed next week. But at least I've heard something. Feel bad for those that still have no news at all.

    I've heard some people say that the DK1/DK2 shipments sometimes arrived before the tracking number, but not sure if that's happened with anyone for CV1?

    On the UPS website, ETA is set to monday (it indeed appears to come from Netherlands). I really doubt it will be here on saturday



    edit : I honestly think this launch went a lot smoother than the KS DK1 one. Even though it was "only" 7500 units, I remember having to wait 2 to 3 weeks after launch simply to have tracking # with Europe being one of the last batches of shipments.

    Considering Facebook bought them out for $2M, the launch should have been smoother than silk.

    I wasn't around for the DK launches, but this one has been a complete shambles.

    Looking at the Reddit shipping page, there wasn't much activity last night in sending out European Rifts...

    2M is nothing really when it comes to manufacturing products. You'll spend that much on startup depending on the size. 2B is a bit harder ~ but can be easily spent really fast when it comes to R&D, worker cost, software, programming, manufacturing cost, sending out free products, Etc. I be surprise if they still have 20M left to work with in terms of getting a support team, last min fixes, and other things.

    Sorry. Obviously I meant two billion. Did try and post to correct this earlier, but it needs moderation for some reason?

    Sorry, I just meant that (assuming my order ships today), UPS offer no service that would get it to me faster than Monday (according to their website). I didn't mean to imply that they don't do Saturday deliveries in general.

  • SchlaggesSchlagges Posts: 39

    Going by the reddit shipping thread, seems as though there was virtually (geddit?) no european shipping activity last night.

    *edges ever more closely to sending that 'cancel my pre-order' email...*

    Thought I'd drop by to let you guys know that I just received the Rift here in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Kickstarter backer. I got the tracking information yesterday; obviously, as it was shipped from the Netherlands I got it in one day. UPS Standard. Nicely packaged.
  • noiselocknoiselock Posts: 11
    did anyone received the cv1 in UK?
    I have preorder status on mine!!
  • TommyEnTommyEn Posts: 14
    No pre-orders have been delivered in Europe yet.
  • martinPmartinP Posts: 34
    Tommy, "Pre-order" Order status is the default status of all the KS (before it starts to be processed)
