Aces were held? lol, I rolled up last Wednesday and bought mine straight up.

Yeah your store was not suppose to do that....

Today is the release date, stores were told (or suppose to be told) to hold them I believe.

Nobody locally held up Aces. I could have bought it yesterday and I had a friend by it Wednesday or Thursday.

Let me see if I can find the thread where I saw it.

For whatever reason it was held at my local.

Not that I expect the pack here this week anyway.

I am assuming that H&L goes out today on the UPS truck. Minneapolis to a distributor in Chicago should be a 2 day ship, that puts it in Chicago on Wednesday. Assuming that my store is using a distributor from the area the local store should have it Thursday or Friday. Of couse, this is all assuming it is shipped today and wasnt already shipped on Friday.

I feel pretty confident that my store should have it this week.

If they can manage to get it out this week and hold it to 5 weeks max between packs that means the Regionals I may attend will have 2, 2-3, 3-4 packs available as of their dates. Even on the low end I'm happy with that.

While at the Omaha Store Championship, the owner wouldn't let people buy ACES until today.

After such a long period of no new product and constant delays FFG doesn't deserve to "hold" anything for a release date... Which should have been months ago to begin with, just saying lol.

So the tournament rules say the following:


In North America, all cards are tournament legal upon that pack’s release.


Since FFG has squishy release dates, I assumed that it becomes legal once it gets its "Now Available" announcement on FFG's page (like http://www.fantasyfl...s.asp?eidn=4541 )

Is that a fair assumption?

No, FFG doesn't enforce that so it is going to be completely up to the store.

Release dates more benefit retailers. It does nothing for FFG

Exactly. FFG has already sold the product by the time it is in stores. Release dates are meant to create an even playing field among retailers.

Since it's Wednesday now, has anyone gotten confirmation from their store that it'll be available on Friday?

Our local store has not gotten any confirmation from his distributor. I'm guessing more than likely this will be released next week (sadly).

Shop near me ordered 4 packs (I am buying 3) and only got 1. :(

So I bought the one pack and played a couple real good games. My buddy's trooper deck is definitely getting better. Good stuff.
