    Until there's redacted screen shots, take it with a pinch of salt.

    if there were 300+ TUFs coming in, i imagine there would be a bit more action in this thread that one fella nearly 400 places deep on the list.

    either it's a balls up or the queue is actually a raffle.

    I gave them an opportunity via webnote to make it right a few days ago by asking if they would switch me to an RX6800XT preorder at the over MSRP/RRP price I already paid for the 3080 (a good deal for them), but instead they said I could cancel and "Preorder" on launch day, that they also couldn't guarantee a price at launch (thus implying they intend to price gouge the RX 6800XT even more than the 3080s).... they don't seem to understand the very basic definition of preorder and how it differs from a backorder.

    This will be my last order.

    Yeah doing that has crossed my mind. Sadly I don't have a spare 800 quid sitting around. Obviously I'm looking forward to getting my 3080 but its not the end of the world having to wait for it. Cyberpunk will be a bug ridden mess for the first few months of release and I can game away quite happily with my old 1080 for a few more months if needed. Having said all that though I would rather have my 3080 to get me through the dark winter months after new year so hopefully we don't have to wait too much longer for them.

    Just order elsewhere, the decision makers at this company are awful.

    Thank you and sorry I did miss this sadly discord just alerts like crazy for me and I did miss this. But this is disgusting many times this was asked not just by me but many others in this forum and never got an answer. It’s not defendable to combine an order without explaining it. Also it made it seem like MSI were upping their game but I guess this isn’t the case now.And this is the point confusing comms and lack of updates while people defend it is mental. Understanding that nvidia have screwed us as well but clarification on something that was asked many times so people didn’t get there hopes up just seems simple. So there has been a large and small order of MSI trios and the very large order didn’t exist.

    Yup. I had it confirmed today that the OK ventus and the small ventus weren't actually two deliveries. The OK one between us being told about it on the 20th and it being sent to customers on the 5th actually became the small one. Nothing in the updates to say that. It still appears as though there were multiple deliveries.

    That's disappointing, I was hoping that small (15 cards) batch that came in last week was just an extra tacked onto the Trio batch and that they would still receive the OK batch of Ventus this week :(
    Back to checking Gibbo's info thread for batch news :|

    Clearly a few of us have that same understanding.

    So we’re all in the same boat... Good thing is this thing comes with 3 years warranty so when things get back to normal we could act on it then and until then... headphones ;-)
