I think in any culture after you take someone's money for a product and then after a year have a Kickstarter and take their money a second time you should give an official update. I also think in any culture if I was running a worldwide company as one person and I wanted to be successful there is no summer vacation.


It is more than concerning that I return to this forum after many weeks and still nothing official to be seen except for another new product on the way. I am assuming it will require another kick starter and more of our money to be sent out in advance.


Followed by lengthy periods of no explanations.


Any updates on the HoBr P500? Posted on [15/09/2020] à 17:10

hi Devil Pigs,


Any updates on the P500 that was supposed to be progressing after your recent kickstarter? There seem to be a lot of other announcements but we have been waiting a very long time and no news at all. Thanks

Maybe instead of trying to undermine my totally accurate post you should be getting the company to post an update on the production status and expected delivery times of all the Kickstarter products.

I'm also sick and tired of all the excuses on this never ending subject or reading about new projects when the old ones aren't even finished. I couldn't care less if this is a one man firm or not. If the firm wants to supply worldwide they should have the sense and decency to at least post an English update every now and then, especially when people have been waiting over year for their items, regardless of when the French take their hols. Unbelievable…. 🙄 This is NOT the way to treat your customers..

Looks like its been pushed back to 2021 due to covid19.

I’m not here to defend DPG and agree the delays are serious, but do you really except companies to only start developing new ideas and products when the previous ones are completely done and delivered? I can guarantee you that such a business plan would be a sure disaster as well.

Oh, come off it, bartdevuyst. Every time the same lame excuses. All people are expecting at the very least are some simple updates in English from the firm. SURELY nothing impossible to ask when one gets news about NEW products?! THIS is not the first time THIS has been criticized, as you well know.


Drop Pod expansion Posted on [22/09/2020] à 17:59

I asked DPG to write a separate update about the preorder campaigns as the news about the delay about those is buried in a Kickstarter update from the A Pig Back From Hell campaign.

Check out this BGG post from Portal Games US [link] talking about how there is a great deal of trouble getting stuff both printed and shipped from China, and Portal is a much bigger company than DPG.


Basically it has been a constant struggle with the printers and international ports since the pandemic hit. This was delayed as a result, but it is set to be getting on the water in October and delivered to customers in mid-November.


I know many are really annoyed and have long given up giving DPG the benefit of the doubt, but 2020 really does screw up EVERYTHING.

Thanks for sharing that, Nostradunwhich. Covid did, and still does shake up things!

Yeah, well these "communication problems" with DPG have been around long before Covid. And Covid CERTAINLY doesn't keep firms from informing their English-speaking customers about releases, delays etc. smh

Maybe an update in November …..

Well, I have to say, I will never Kickstart or pre-order anything from DPG ever again. Even if the delays were justifiable, the lack of communication is unacceptable. I've soured on the company, and its made me lose interest in playing their games.


Drop Pod expansion Posted on [01/12/2020] à 17:32

Maybe an update in January….

The thought that DVP should concentrate itself to correct and "recap" the products it already has – however – it is condivisible… I mean… It continues to "spit out" new ideas or products without even having completed or revisited and corrected the products on the market already… It wants to follow the steps of Games Workshop, maybe, and I know that it is not a red cross – like company and all the rest… But I think that it should pay no more attention onto developing new products without even having finished the products range on the line already.


And – as a collector – I'd like that the products could be made buyable and affordable for the whole world and not only for the "kickstarters" or "bakers" or similar… And I'd prefer to see no more single tokens that could be inserted into the core sets sold instead as "expansions"… I mean. It is not fair and expensive for us collectors, to buy a new set of "german panzers and a bunch of units" (one blister) at prices like 20 or even 30 / 40 eurs !!!

It is a Games Workshop – like policy of overpriced things and things that should be part of the core sets sold instead as expansions…


And it is a bad thing for us customers. It shows that the unique thing they seem to be interested to is our pocket money !!!

Instead a good company should take more into account the customer satisfaction and the "affordable prices" policy.


I am a bit upset also for the fact that the Out of Stock products are not reprinted in favour of newer products… And I think that it should not be done by a gaming company.

The new customer cannot buy the complete collection and it is a shame, somehow…


I hope that my mind has reached you the correct way without any offense or similar, since my English is quite bad and I m not even a native speaking in english… So… It is harder to express correctly a deep thought about such a sensitive matter like the above mentioned and treated.


Farewell, keep safe and happy new year and Merry XMAS too…

If we don't have the chance to chat before the period…


Bye

I gladly would help out the Publisher with taking the risk and doing a late Preorder for a little higher price. Iwould have gladly used this Preorder with a nice Combination of Storage boxes etc, but i only got a negative answer. So No Money aka financial help from me 🙄

Are you aware of the concept of "minimum order size"? There is a reason that there are "P500" campaigns — if you are not ordering at least 500, then the printer will not even consider your order. It is not worth their time to get the line set up to print the materials.


So are you willing to pay enough to cover the cost of printing 500 more copies plus storing all the copies that don't sell initially for however many months it will take to sell them?


Someone was selling their entire collection here, so just make them an offer they cannot refuse to buy the items you are looking to get.
