    I received my limited edition dstwo's the other day (in support of the contest), but it seems that mygamingcard.net cannot follow the simplest of instructions to send a "limited edition" item (which is packaged in a soft metal tin), in a cardboard box like I asked, resulting in all of them being completely crushed.

    now some may say, "it's only a tin", but since these were sold at a premium (to help fund the homebrew contest), no there's no reason that they need to cheap out out packaging (especially considering that the boxes provided by the postal service are FREE!). I've left them 2 email queries, but have not received any response(s).

    I feel that it's time that we start speaking up and let these companies know that if they are not going to provide good customer service, we will take our business elsewhere.

    Not trying to be a smart ass but if Some one is saying that's funny mine came and it was in perfect condition I'd think that that person ordered it from the same site. Which I did btw order it from the same site.

    Now my second one which I ordered from lightake, I'm expecting that thing to be all kinds of f'd up smashed to hell.

    That is truely lucky right there. I have another one coming for my son and I ordered it from lightake. I'm expecting it to be in far worse shape than what you got. Hopefully I won't have to cut the tin open with the jaws of life to get the flash card out tho. [​IMG]

    I ordered mine from 0shipingZone.com and it came in a small package that had bubble wrap protected walls and my LEDSTWO was in perfect condition upon arrival. They even took a picture of the package before they shipped it to me. The only problem I had was the time it took to get to me, but it was also expected considering I ordered it right before Christmas. Other than that, everything was golden.

    got mine from mygamingcard.net - yellow envelope, mint condition. Not a scratch on any of it. Maybe you guys got your parcel stuck in a rough plane, and other boxes were really sharp...

    It's not like they're banging these up on purpose.

    Are they the ones to blame?

    I think there was a Mag Staff overhaul (Hadrian got replaced by Rydian and thieves like us got replaced by VatoLoco)

    I've ordered mine on 0shippingzone and the blue shell doesn't fit "perfect" its so deformed that you can stick the Supercard 90° twisted in it. Mine was delivered with the Supercard 90° twisted xDD, the Company that packaged the DSTWO isn't really good at packaging off electronic.
    Dear Supercard Team, pls pack this thing better .-.
