Hi everyone, we wanted to make it as clear as possible that everything on this store (Badge, Art Board, and SAO) are not in hand yet. Everything is a PREORDER, and does not exist. We are not manufacturing or ordering boards until after DEFCON 30 (probably a little while after).
We do not have a timeline for when these will be shipped. Previously it was already difficult to estimate time, but now with chip shortages, part delays, increased costs, and high lead times, it's simply a bad idea and irresponsible to try and guess. Art Boards, and especially SAOs, will be in hand before the Black Mage Badge due to much higher complexity and part requirements.
We will inform you via your ordering email with updates as orders get processed, badges get ordered, etc. We will also announce a blackout date for when we are ready to stop selling badges and order from the fab shop.
Everything is a PREORDER. Don't expect it soon. We'll update you via the email from your order.
