I was on the phone with Jen & Jack pretty regularly waiting for WOZ...... Jack is a straight shooter & I'm sure he's doing everything he can to deliver a truly amazing product. Waiting sucks guys..... Hang in there & it will be worth the wait! (I pray)

I'm guessing Jacks making sure the parts work and fit right.

Quoted from SadSack:

At least my guess is based on rumor and evidence. What's your's based on? Wishful thinking and the words of a proven liar?
I have nothing against Jack, but he has repeatedly been proven to be a liar and that is one description he will never shake. But don't worry. He's in good company.

I really hate feeding into this crap - but ok... I think your just another JJP troll, you pontificating your guess based on rumor and "evidence" makes me laugh, and I think your personal attacks against Jack are lame - but whatever dude.

Quoted from Skyemont:

I understand. Just saying a lot were saying when GOT got announced it was going to dethrone TH. Just based on looks alone at this point, TH is so far ahead it's not funny.

That was all the stern lovers ...... Just look at the poll. Stern doesn't compare to what JJP puts out other than price wise. The fact is that Jack is truly passionate about producing an awesome product. Looks and CODE of the Hobbit Will be on a different planet than GOT.

Quoted from PappyBoyington:

Amazing, you would think...well no need to say the obvious. I see no reason to believe they will build TH any faster than WOZ. So if your at the end of the line you could be waiting until next November/December (2016) before you get your game. Are they planning on building the Standards at the same time as the LEs?

Not sure I get you..... Are you trying to be a troll or just can't help it?

Quoted from lowepg:

Aka "the end justifies the means"
"Who cares if people were lied to, the game got delivered"
Not everyone agrees with this, however.

If this is such a big Hobbit update issue, then where are all the upset JJP customers chiming in about this?

#8995 3 years ago
Quoted from lowepg:

Seems pretty simple:
The folks that are currently TH pre-orderers are clearly "ends justify the means" kind of people. So I wouldn't expect any of them to complain. They certainly knew what they were getting into after Woz... so I'd assume they prepaid with both eyes open and in full knowledge of Jacks shenanigans- and- are ok with them.
Not sure why you'd be confused on this?
I would also guess there is a significant segment of pinheads that, as excited as they might be to eventually own a Hobbit, won't preorder. Some "weird" people still buy stuff AFTER they see it and when its built.

Actually I preordered to support JJP. Maybe it will help some of the weird people you refer to get a JJP game some day.

Quoted from jazc4:

This comes off as a holier-than-thou, passive aggressive rant. Having pro-ordered and not canceling does not make any of us unethical, or less ethical than you.
You obviously don't like Jack. We get it. Instead of hanging around on this thread and trying to convince us to dislike Jack too, move on to a non-JJP thread.

I was putting together a reply also regarding lowepg's comment but you said what I was really thinking.

Jack is human, and no person or business is perfect that I know of - but so what. I feel JJP's done what it needed to do to get the company off the ground, built a world class pin that many regard as the best ever, keep the lights on, and deliver - what an accomplishment in my book. Hopefully its game on in January and great things to come from Jack in 2016.
