    I ordered through Amazon also, but I cancelled the order yesterday and will buy it from the local game store. The game store employee told me they should have it sometime today. Someone on another thread said that amazon is have a delay issue with shipping Warlords.

    I just got back from Worst Buy where the game is now listed as "Backorder" on their computers. Of course they told me it would be in by this afternoon, but I have heard that for three days running now.


    I do not think the problem is on Firaxis' end of things. Supply chains are notoriously buggy and there are multiple links where something can get snafued, waylaid, or delayed.

    Well, for one, I did not know they existed. That's my excuse.

    No I am unhappy. Depression setting in. Bi-polar levels accelerating. Putting away all sharp objetcs and opening the garage windows....:lol:

    They deleted it.

    I got to page 7 and it was gone. Made me wonder how they eventually figured it out (didn't know someone from Firaxis came by).

    Is that how you got it? When did you get it? Yesterday? Amazon is being so stupid, why don't they try GETTING stuff and SHIPPING it when they're supposed to?!?!:mad::confused: :mad: :confused: I'd like to just go to Gamestop and get it today, but they don't have it either! :wallbash:

    Well, some guy on the thread posted another thread about the rumours on the Apolyton forums too, and a Firaxis guy came by and told them it was fake. The same guy posted a link from Apolyton to the fake thread here, and the moderators soon closed the whole thread, and gave some bloody warnings to a certain guy I guess..... :rolleyes:

    At the end the OP did admit it was fake.

    Maquis ~ i don't believe that's the real game. You totally photoshopped that image in there. I don't see any mention of Dutch privateers anywhere on that box!! ;)

    on a serious note: good to see that the stable requires Horses to even be built.

    I hate Amazon. Its the WORST online ordering site ever, because it didn't ship Warlords when it was supposed to. I was under the impression that when stuff is pre-ordered, they send it to your house after you buy it online. But apparently that does not apply, as the real purpose I have discovered is to PRETEND that Amazon has this game when you give them your money, and that they will PRETEND to send it to you, though in reality you never get what you ordered. WHAT FUN!

    I took a look at the scenarios and what pissed me off was that they didn't add the japanese in genghis khan.
