Legend of the Five Rings: Twenty Festivals Shipping Update – Â February 5th, 2015
For all our our loyal fans of L5R, we have recently received an update on the transit of the upcoming Twenty Festivals set. Â We were projecting the setâ€™s release for the middle of March, 2015. Â However, that is not logistically possible with the latest development. Â The terrible PacificÂ Dragon of WaterÂ has struck not one, but two of our ships with product to be delivered.
AEG was informed last week that the vessel carrying Dark Seas, an upcoming board game release, had engine trouble and was forced to return to make port at Busan, South Korea.
To make matters worse, the vessel carrying Twenty Festivals was directed back to Busan, South Korea to assist this vessel.
This has compounded an existing situation regarding port congestion (see the article link below). Shipments are being diverted to other ports and causing delays there as well.
Hereâ€™s an excerpt:
Nineteen container ships were anchored outside the congested ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach Saturday morning, according to the Marine Exchange of Southern California.
The tally of anchored container ships has been in double digits every day but one since Jan. 14 amid monumental backlogs at the ports, which handle more than 40 percent of U.S. containerized cargo.
The total number of ships at anchor was 22, including two bulk carriers and a general cargo ship, the Marine Exchange said. That was up by three from Friday.
As you can see, these troubles affect not only L5R but other products we as a company are releasing. Â Ships are being redirected to other ports and causing congestion in those ports as well.
So where is Twenty Festivals right now?
February 27th, 2015 – Date expected to arrive in port. Â Currently in transit via ship.
March 13th, 2015* – Expected to arrive in our warehouse, pending customs clearance.
March 30th, 2015* – Expected for Stronghold Store release.
Mid April, 2015*- Expected for General release, we are working to make thisÂ as early as possible.
Tournament Legality Date –Â Upon General Release.
*Dates will be updated whenÂ possible.
That being said, we will keep our preview schedule on track. Just because product is being delayed does not mean we canâ€™t show you the awesome cards in the set!
We hope this helps in the understanding of how these things work and provides insight to the daily challenges that we face during this process. We are committed to providing our players a quality experience with L5R, and maintaining clarity with you when issues like these arise. Thanks for your patience and your continued support of L5R!
