Clarification on Pre-Order

Anonymous
Not applicable
I only keep up with the Rift every so often to keep my sanity levels in check while I wait for them to ship. I placed my order soon after the pre-orders became available on Jan 6. I saw the news later on that even pre-orders would not all be shipped by end of March, but I have no idea how to tell if I made that cutoff or not.

Looking at their announcement today about pre-orders shipping this week it says "We’re working as fast as we can to get Rifts to customers who pre-ordered. If you pre-ordered, you’ll get an email when your order is being prepped (1-3 weeks prior to shipping) and then another one when your payment method has been charged and your Rift is on its way."

Does that mean that if I haven't received anything from them since the "thank you for your pre-order" back on Jan 6th, that I should not expect to be in this round of shipments this week?

Unfortunately, yes, that seems to be the case.  The cutoff for the first waves of shipments seems to be about 7-8 minutes after preorders went live.

Definitely in April. Considering they aren't even shipping the first wave until March 30th. This entire process has been a big let down filled with half truths.

Do you have any official word on that? I had it stuck in my head they said 2nd round wasn't until something like August after they were hit with shock at the amount of orders they received on Jan 6th.

I have zero proof, but I'm 99.99% certain that is not the case.

Sounds accurate thus far. 8:08 preorder confirmation here and no shipping email. I'd guess second wave.....
