Quoted from iceman44:
I ordered in Feb. with Jack himself, the invoice date says 2/26/11....
So Christmas then?

Quoted from The_Dude_Abides:
They were just having a little fun with ice I am sure they did not intend to offend anyone. Sometimes we take things to serious due to our pinball addiction. I think we just need to laugh about things more often.
Indeed! I lobbed my softball of a post out there knowing full well Rob would hit it out of the park.
I have no doubt that if Ice, Rob, and I lived remotely close to each other we'd routinely be found having a few drinks over a game (or 20) of pinball.
Quoted from callmesteam:
My understanding is that they were able to switch their orders IN THE QUEUE to regular editions, ie. pushing their LE's further back in line and getting their regular orders early just to make sales/run their business. Not taking cuts, just switching orders for the same customer. Then they can sell the LEs later, to collectors instead on operators...
Which means these distributors either pushed a bunch of their LE customers back in favor of new standard sales or they have LEs that were not presold, choosing to sit on them for whatever reason instead.
Quoted from StevenP:
Today is WOZ Day!
UPDATE: WOZ ECLE #61 in da house. First major upgrade to the Moze-O-Leum in quite a while.
Jack called while the game was en route to check in, even read back my original email order from 1/30/11. Said that production was going well, main problem was not being able to get games made for new orders soon enough. I hope the demand stays high for a long time--with software updates and a timeless theme, it may and that's good for pinball.
Awesome news Steve!
Quoted from mountaingamer:
Lol - gotcha - thanks for your concern - thought you were just stirring things up
Nope. No pot stirring. Just want to see this thread fill up with "I got my game!" posts instead of people trying to piece together random bits of information in a futile attempt to determine when their games might get delivered is all.
Quoted from Aurich:
I'm delighted to hear it. Given the track record and pace JJP has had up until this point you won't see me laying down any $50 bets that they'll make it within that 90 day window though. Be happy to be wrong, I want people to have their games.
Remember there is an "ish" at the end of those 90 days.
Imagine how dull this thread would be if people were actually getting their games in a timely manner.
Quoted from lowepg:
This thread would probably be more useful to all considered if it were strictly limited to posting VERIFIED WOZ shipments.
Grade-school economics pissing matches
Facebook pictures of the shipping dock
WOZ haters (nor WOZ fanboi defenses)
I've been guilty of poking fun in here too, but there's other places to go do that, not here. It be nice if a mod went back and deleted every post here (including mine) that didn't include a ship date/ invoice number, etc.
Regardless, my last post here (unless I happen to order a WOZ )
Better to just lock this thread and start a new one. The only posts that are relevant at this point are the ones related to deliveries going forward.
Quoted from pins4fun:
The puzzling thing to me is how many code updates WOZ has received since its inception and how sophisticated and enjoyable it plays already with the most recently released 3.0 code. Unprecedented.
Considering that even further gameplay and platform code refinements/bug fixes are being implemented as we speak by a most qualified and talented coding team, I don't really understand why some are still arguing here as to whether or not the game should've been shipped with 1.25 or 3.0, or anything in between.
I hear that updating WOZ from the JJP support site via its built-in USB port is well within the elementary technical expertise and know-how of most pinheads, and if not, Alex is there to hold your hands. I think it's really is a non-issue. Thank you JJP, and please keep those updates coming.
It's disconcerting to fathom that (like its competition) JJP could've easily shipped all WOZ'es with an earlier code and left it that, lol.
Agreed. This is how practically any software based product works these days. If I go to the store and buy a copy of Skyrim and bring it home, I will have to download a bunch of patches right away to bring it up to date. The same can be said for any other modern game. Day 1 patches are the norm these days. Just the way it is.
In the case of WOZ (or any other pin for that matter), I would rather they ship the game to me when it is physically ready and I can then update the software on my own after it has arrived at my home.
Would you really want them to keep a game that is ready to ship sitting around for a couple extra weeks so they can load a newer version of the software on it for you? Some may say yes, but I sure as heck wouldn't.
On a related note. Nice to see a lot of people getting their games as of late. Wonderful to see!
Quoted from HENSBROOKER:
- In the meantime they have produced a series of 75th as one of the pics showed. That could mean the vendor problem is ECLEWOZ related, without toughing the 75th.
Anyway... another pic shows at least 12 units are ready to ship... some of them go to the UK.
New money vs. old money seems like the more likely explanation.
Quoted from PanzerFreak:
I don't give a crap if it takes Jack 90 days or 120 days to get the rest of the WOZ's out as the game speaks for itself and is worth the wait. Are people dropping their preorders left and right because of the delays...no. The delays suck but people end up getting their games just how I was told I would get my game in August of last year but it took until the end of October. Games are being made, code is complete yet no matter what you will find something to complain about.
You don't give a crap because you HAVE your game already. And yes, people have been dropping their preorders. I dropped mine back in January and I have seen a number of others get out since then and now as well. In the end you should care that people get their games sooner rather than later as the longer it takes for JJP to deliver the games, the worse it is for their long term business.
I'm glad that you got your game and enjoy it so much. Many others have too. That doesn't make the wait any easier for those who still have a hole in their gameroom to be filled. Nor does the fact that it has now been over a year since the first LE was delivered and many are still waiting for their games.
The whole experience poisoned the well for myself and many others. I'm still interested in what JJP produces in the future, but they're going to have to do a lot better in order to get my money.
Totally agree and understand where you're coming from. No worries.
