I also have not received a shipping notice for black Friday. Before black Friday, my forcepack order was 11 days between order and shipping notice.

I ended up ordering a bunch of stuff in batches thanks to fear of items selling out and the volcano tile.

The LE AotW GM screen I ordered on 2/25 will arrive on Monday
The two orders I made on 2/26 (Black Friday) have not shipped

Anybody place an order with catalystgamelabs.com around black Friday? I should have known better than to order from those guys there customer service is atrocious. Cue all the catalyst apologists. Call me weird but when you take my money i believe i should get a shipping notice and 3 weeks after not getting that i would think someone would answer my email. I swear I'll never buy from them again.

Yes, ordered on 11/25, and still not shipped ("Fulfillment Status: Unfulfilled").  On 12/11 I sent an email to store@catalystgamelabs.com, and have not heard anything back (as of 12/15).


Edit 12/16: I got a shipping notice today.

My Black Friday order shipped earlier this week... by USPS, when I picked UPS for shipping.  I'm a bit annoyed about this, because I picked UPS not because it's cheaper (it was in this case), but because UPS orders can be rerouted.

I'm now playing the "will it actually arrive before my holiday travel (USPS currently says yes), or will it sit on my porch for two weeks?" game.

Why offer a choice of shipping options if you're going to ignore what the customer asks for?

(I realize CGL can't do anything about this, I just needed to vent.)

Lol, I got the notice my Stormcrow & stuff shipped 2 or 3 days AFTER the package arrived.  SO . . . you might see the stuff before the notice.

Same.

Just wanted to give a positive shout out to Chris at the Catalyst Store. 

I'd ordered a Diamond Shark Kickstarter coin (a second one, so I could display both DS and Sea Fox logos), and a Cloud Cobra one arrived by mistake (there was a database error, apparently).  Chris responded to my e-mail within hours and put in a new order for the correct item.

When I wrote to the store address, I made sure to include my order number, the shipping/tracking number, and a photo of the incorrect item.

Shiny thing!" - Maximillian Liao, "My Triumph", audio dictation, 3030.  Unpublished.

Is there any update on what CGL will do about the kickstarter dice option that turned out to be bad quality? I’ve inquired several times in the last 6 months about them, but I have never gotten any reply as of yet.

So, if you get the Automated Reply after using the "Contact Us" form, does that then tell the System that they've Responded to us about our problem, so that they don't need to have an actual HUMAN reply to us about it?   ???  Placed an order on 24 November, still have no Response from any Human about it.  I've used the "Contact Us" form TWICE, and got the Automated Reply each time, then nothing else.  xp  I've emailed them once, and got nothing at all in response. (Yes, I used the "store@catalystgamelabs.com" address.)

Had an issue with a SR E-Novella last year, eventually got help from someone at their FB CGL Page.  That however was for a digital item, and I doubt the same guy could help with a Physical item.    :(

I Love the Company, and I KNOW that the people (Brent, Loren, Randall, Ray, etc) ALL care about the games they make.  But Loren SERIOUSLY needs to get someone working in their Customer Service Department.   :-\

The new guy, Chris, has been pretty on top of things lately.  I had a couple of shipping issues a few months back and he got it handled two days after my emails went in.  Hope they didn't lose him.

He got back to me about my shipping question like a champ.  Chris is solid.

And Of Course I SHOULD have tried emailing them again, BEFORE I posted here about my Problems.  :-[

Yep, I emailed them directly (rather than the "Contact Us" form), and was disappointed to get the Automated reply.  Figured, "Well, more "Nothing" until I contact them in another week or two.", but then my inbox gets lit up!   ;D  I got 2 messages from the CGL store, one from PayPal about a refund, then a message from Chris.  They made a new "Order" for the missing stuff, gave me a refund on the difference (because they've since dropped the price), and now I'm waiting for my new Order to ship.

Patience is Key I guess.  :-[


Thank You to "Chris", if he's a member here!  :thumbsup:  :beer:

I mean "Chris, CGL Customer Service Guy", to be exact.  I'm sure there are other people here named Chris, but if you weren't the one that Helped me, I'm not "Thanking" you!  :D

Once all pledges are shipped credits will be issued. I'm not sure how much I can reveal so far, but there's a specific reason for doing it this way.

Any idea "When" they will start on this though?  I'm still waiting for this to wrap because I'm short a Daggerstar Keychain.   :-\  I don't understand why Shipments in other Countries should influence QML Shipments here in the US.

I appreciate the update. Do you think emailing ‘Chris’ would be beneficial or would it just clutter up his inbox?

Just to throw my hat in the ring here, my pledge finally arrived on February 15th ..... will it be once all pledges are shipped & delivered, or all pledge missing items are shipped (I am missing two items) that the credit issue will be addressed?

I am missing the Clan Invasion Box Set, IS Battlelance and the faction dice set from the Clan Invasion Kickstarter.

I have emailed both customerservice@catalystgamelabs.com and store@catalystgamelabs.com on December 13 2021, 22 January 2021, and March 28 2022 asking for update on the missing items but have not received a response.

Hi,

I am a late Warrior level backer (Nov 30th) via Crowdox. My Kickstarter account is not linked to crowdox unfortunately .

I don't have my email for accessing the digital cornucopia, in particular the legends PDF.

AFAIK there are other people in the same situation, I believe the issue may be that I've backed after the cornucopia codes were sent out.

Could you help please? This is the 5th time I've emailed with zero response.

Many thanks
Adam

Never had a single response to any of my emails, and never received my cornucopia link, fortunately, after I publicly shamed them on their Facebook page someone shared their cornucopia link with me (and deleted my post).

My problem now is that I don't have that message any more, and I don't have the digital companion app, any suggestions on how to get it? It doesn't show up in the app store

It's freely available, but not on the phone specific app stores. You'll see it if you're on, say, an ipad but not a phone. Your best bet in the phone's case is to simply use Flechs Sheets as it's a website.

Incidentally, when was the last time you contacted customer service? Chris has been handling a lot of CS issues and responds to people pretty fast.

It's freely available https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fireopal.battletech but you need a tablet with Android 8 or higher. You can't see or install it on a phone, or a tablet with Android 7 or earlier.
