Final batch FAQs

Posted by Frankenspiel Ltd. (Creator)
15 likes

Hello everyone,

Following from our last update, we can confirm we are still on target for a July 2016 shipment.

This will mean that the last backers will receive their rewards by the end of July 2016. Some backers may get their rewards sooner, within this timeframe. We have tried to reduce delivery times for everyone as much as possible but it is unlikely that they will come any sooner than the end of July.

We have taken steps towards regaining tighter control over our operations in China. All we can say at this stage is that we will not make the same mistake twice. We will talk more about this in our final updates.

FAQs

“When will you ship the Special Edition Champagne Gold colours? Will the Black colours come first?”

This is false, the final batch will include every SKU. All products and accessories will be shipped together, at the same time. If you have opted for Special Edition Champagne Gold, this will not delay delivery.

The only likelihood is that those based in Europe will receive their rewards a few days earlier than others.

“We have waited so long! What’s in it for us?”

We have been working on a few nice surprises to reward everyone’s patience. We promise it will have been worth the wait!

Those in the first batch will also benefit from any extra benefits. Further information to come in our final updates.

We really value your participation so, as well as receiving our rewards, for those who are interested, you will become our VIPs as we venture beyond this project and onto many more. We will keep you involved, giving you a say in all future products as well as exclusive discounts, rewards and early bird opportunities on everything Frankenspiel.

If you have already received your rewards in the first batch, we and other backers would really appreciate your feedback, so please let us know how you are getting on!

If you have not yet received your rewards and would like to change your address, please do so now. If you have lost your survey or you would like to view your current details please go to https://frankenspielfs-x.backerkit.com/. You can view your current details by logging into your BackerKit profile. If you cannot remember your password, please request a new survey using your Kickstarter email address or select ‘Forgot your password?’ on the login page.

Your next update will be no later than 4 weeks from now, Wednesday 20th July. However, we will update you beforehand if delivery is approaching.

All the best, 

The Frankenspiel Team

      No tracking numbers or any other information received here. I doubt we'll receive tracking numbers in all fairness but I do have my doubts about July delivery. I would have though that the creator would have announced that they've all been shipped around now but they haven't. In fact the next update is 20th July.... very unlikely for July delivery.

      I really doubt, that I will receive my speakers before August. I can even bet with anyone 100$.

      Everytime I see the "be respectful and considerate" under the post comment button, I feel like I am being held to higher standard than the people running this kickstarter. I have just lost any kind of faith in this project. We have been lied to and abused, but there is not much I can do besides hoping that it will turn out good in the end. My expectations are so low, if I get anything out of this kickstarter, I will be pleasantly surprised. I am looking forward to another delay message in 4 weeks.

      The same old story
      It's been told much too much before
      The same old story
      But it's worth telling just once more

      Richard, 2 years ago we were also a couple of weeks away from delivery. In fact, we've been a few weeks away from delivery ever since this project got funded. NOTHING seems to be different now.

      David,
      Every other promise you've made regarding delivery has turned out to be wildly inaccurate, for example last summer we were 2 weeks away from delivery. What's different this time?

    9. Piotr Kula on

      Oh, I am so happy about this great news. I cant wait till I get my 2 speakers in July. It will be just in time for my birthday. Oh man Frankenspiel you are the best. I cant wait to sarcastically comment on your condescending bullshit on your next fucking stupid post. Please report this post so I get banned from this shit site because you are just fucking winding me up now. Frank, you cock sucker.

      Those two questions are not the most Frequently Asked.

      I believe the most FAQ is "Where are the speakers right now?", usually with a request for pictures.

      I, too, find it difficult to believe that the speakers will be built, shipped and delivered over the next 6 weeks, but I like that firm dates are on the table.

      Just hope the headline for the next update isn't "UFOs stole the speakers to learn our advanced technology!". Will keep the popcorn ready and wait.

      I really doubt this will happen. But I'll at least give you this last chance. Not sure how "end of July 2016" will be, but i'm not sure why the next update is almost near end of July as well..

      Sorry, but I can't be positive anymore. I only believe it when I have the speakers in my hands.
      We'll see...

    14. bazpoint on

      How many times have we been promised delivery by x date before? I've lost count. I'll believe it when the speakers are sitting in front of me. And there's no such thing as overreacting or being too harsh with Frankenspiel. Even if the speakers do turn up, it's been two years! Two years! Two years of either incompetence or outright dishonest practice, combined with a pathological inability to communicate transparently and openly with backers. What a mess.

      My summerholiday is in August this year, so perfect! I am talking about your project for a long time now, with a lot of people.....can't wait to show to everybody!

      Best update maybe ever. Photos of the process would have been even better...but considering everything, well, Frankenspiel has come a long way.

      Well, I for one, am really pleased with this update!

      It's amazing that after having dragged it out so long, that each and every backer will receive their speakers by the end of July. With the next update being no later than 20th July that gives Frankenspiel just under 4 weeks for all of the speakers to be produced/assembled/packed and sent to an unnamed shipping provider who will miraculously fulfil all of the deliveries from 20th to 30th July

      This is an outstanding feat of organisation from Frankenspiel and I'm fully confident that the time and energy they've put into this masterplan is why it's taken so many months to come together..

      It's so thoughtful of you to not to have provided any photos of this process so that the surprise isn't spoiled for any of us.

      In other news, my new flying pig is being delivered next week, can't wait!!

      Thanks for the update. To be honest I kind of lost faith on this project. I even overreacted at some point because of disappointment .

      I hope you will be able to honour your timeline. Thanks

      Cheers

      Nice update, and great news, thank you.

      Though I admit to a LOL at your comment "We have been working on a few nice surprises to reward everyone’s patience. We promise it will have been worth the wait!" because c'mon, even you guys have to give a bit of a rueful laugh/sigh/groan at the "worth the wait" bit! My first thought was:

      "Awesome, our speakers are arriving wrapped in a Lamborghini!"

      :o)

      Excellent - Can't wait! :)
