Hi SiegeTowers,
I joined this GB yesterday. and i just saw the shipping using DHL. is it possible to use registered mail instead of DHL? or is there other options?
because in Indonesia DHL have very bad reputation, they charged me with extra cost that more than the value of the package itself.
please just use cheaper service. i don't mind if take longer to arrive.

yes, but please if it possible don't use DHL. DHL in Indonesia is a corrupt company you always have to pay extra fee to get your item even you already pay the shipping cost. especially if they know the value of the item.
i bought 3 t-shirts($20 each) from valve official store with shipping cost and they still charge me $30 extra.
friend of mine bought some item around $150 include shipping and they charge him $70 again here.

i hope there will no problem. but  if it possible to use other shipping method i'll very glad.
thank you.

Man this set is really great, plus free shipping worldwide.  Hopefully it is popular enough to become a Cherry profile at some point.
It would look great on a blue or dark grey case.

the default are the matte ones right? i actually didn't know that i can have them in a semi-gloss finish close to SP's until today but I e-mailed z-frontier about it already. Asked them if the pricing would be affected if i would want to have them in semi-gloss. but if that'd jack the price up i'll just leave it as is to avoid complications with the ones who already paid. Would really want it in semi-gloss tho.

Hi Siegetowers!
Are we too late to add some keys to make this set more compatible with 60% layouts??
I mean: R2 1.5 units backspace and tilde/backslash in blue, plus R3 1.0 units ctrl, alt and fn and/or R4 1.0 units fn.
Last ask: a couple of "accent" keys in an alternative yellow/orange (esc and enter) would turn this in the perfect ultimate set (my personal taste......)
Great one anyway.....

Hi there sputnik. I'm sorry to inform you that such changes are kind of impossible as of the moment. Maxkeys refused to add certain keys because they still haven't done the molds for them. Also just went for simpler colors to avoid over complicating the set. That being said, i hope you still support this group buy. That's all and have a nice day!

I thought so too. That's why my original plan involved compatibility keys such as the hhkb bs and backslash. But when i proposed the desired keys for the set, they told me that i can't have those.

Yeaah. They said that they can do a glossy finish, but it has to be for a light set. They don't want to do a non matte finish for a dark colored set.

I have bought 3 keysets from Zfrontier now, and I haven't been charged any extra for either of them yet. I'm not saying it can't happen but it hasn't happened to me yet at least. 
Sometimes I get charged with items from the US either by DHL or customs office here in Denmark, but so far no problems from ZF.

I just found the following infomation from official zfrontier china,

"新版 MAXKEY 在之前的基础上改进了工艺,精度更高字符粗细更为一致。同时优化了字符间距,去掉 Backspace 中间的空格,并将 Escape 改为 Esc、Delete 改为 Del,使得整体效果更为简洁美观。"

And plain translation is,

‘The new version of MAXKEY improved on the basis of the previous process, the higher the accuracy of the characters more consistent. At the same time optimize the character spacing, remove the middle of the Backspace space, and Escape to Esc, Delete to Del, making the overall effect is more simple and beautiful.’
(Sorry, I'm lazy just google translate it)

From your render, it seems to be no such change, could you clarify this or more specific what actual legends will it be?

Hi. These are just renders and the only thing inaccurate here is the delete key. Beloeve what's in the main site. They're the ones coordinating with maxkey.

1 DAY TILL DEAD LINE AND WE'RE AT 176

Do you think the  MOQ will be reached anyway at this point? 

I mean:

- 176 x $115 = $20.240 
- $20.240 / $95 = ~213 sets 

I mean even if by ourself we don't reach the goal (and with 1 day missing i doubt) will be worth anyway for them to buy the extra sets to reach the 200 MOQ. 

That's also why we should have a commit button i guess, since many more people would join if the price was $95 instead of $115

Idk, at this point might be too late but i believe that if the moq goes lower and the GB gets extended, many more people will join (over the 200 planned).

So after a few follow ups asking for update, they told me that they're just starting the color sampling today. I'm sorry but i think this will be pushed back. I wish i could've done something to prevent this but i think they are also filled with orders recently. Again I apologize everybody. I will give you updates non stop whenever i get some and will also keep asking from zf and maxkey.

Hi there. Sorry for the late update. ZF and I have been pretty busy just to find a solution over maxkey's short comings. They refused to start production until we give them physical color sampled of the colors when in fact before thestart of the gb they reassured us that they can match our colors given our existing data and files we sent them. I ordered abs chips from SP and had them sent to maxkey just to effin get it started. Everything's just really frustrating and what's more disappointing is they didnt even tell us earlier!! It took us a dozen of mails just to know that they're having problems. Again i am sorry for the delay but i promise everything will be done by zf and me just to make everything perfectly.

Many thanks,

We are sorry to announce that Maxkey Night King has been delayed.
Maxkey was not able to replicate the exact colors from Seigetowers' design till now.
We are working closely with the designer and helping Maxkey's factory to produce the qualified color sample. Mass production will start once the color samples get passed.

Yes. The color chips from SP is still on its way to the factory. I believe once they get it they will be able to get things done. Again I am really sorry that we are delayed but i can't settle with inaccurate colors. I want this to be the best it wasnmeant to be.

I am starting to wonder if its a case of they become to popular to fast and can't handle the backlog.. are if its a case of just lack luster service. Kinda sad thought for SA fan's as SP and Maxkey's are the only two real SA producers I know of.

Yeah, I think it was sort of a big shift. For a while, SP had backlogs of YEARS, and tons of projects going through them... Then Maxkeys showed up and was like "Look what I can make for $100 in a few months!"... And then a lot more projects started going that way.

And last I heard, I think SP's SA backlog is down to 6 or 7 months...

Who knows... I'm not all that upset, though. It does suck that it's all so late, but at some point you just realize you're the passenger on the wild ride.

SP increased capacity for SA and a lot of people have done maxkeys GBs, so SP's backlog is down to 6 months

I know they say "no news is good news" but this lack of communication is maddening. I didn't expect these to ship on time but being two months late and having no information means I'll probably not take part in another GB involving Maxkeys and/or zFrontier. Spent a year designing and building a custom keyboard and it's been sitting unused for lack of keycaps for two months.

I don't blame Siegetowers at all, of course. He's did a great job with this set and I really appreciate all the hard work. This set is definitely worth the wait.

Honestly I place this at the feet of Maxkey's I hadn't seen any good news about them lately. I honest think it was they just got to big for there own good to fast and took on to much. I wouldn't really blame Z-Frontier or anyone other then Maxkey's for the lack of updates. I mean there might be nothing new to update.. The updates before this one, it honestly sounded like Maxkey's was doing there best to drag there feet in the sand about everything they could which lead me to the conclusion that perhaps the issue is simply Maxkey's taking on to much workload.

Hi there guys. I know all of us here are upset because of the delay that is happening. I really apologize for this but I am doing my best to get a word from zfrontier or maxkeys. I've been emailing them a lot but i still don't have any update as of now. Still hoping for the best.

So yeah, I'm back with the first news from mackey and zfrontier after the CNY. They just emailed me this morning just to inform me that theybhave just recieved the color chips from SP. One problem is SP made anmistake by not shipping the chip BFO with it that comprises the color for the alphas. They asked me if they can just proceed with the production with it but i don't think i can deal with that much ofna compromise. We've been waiting for a long time now and it'd be more disappointing if it will come to us inaccurate. Zfrontier told me that they've been clntacting SP to fulfill the defficiencies in our order but sadly SP is still not responding. So yeah. We have another delay.

Post by: SiegeTowers on Wed, 14 March 2018, 00:58:42
Another word from zfrontier, i asked them what if we wait for the missing chip from SP, they told me that it usually takes around two weeks to arrive maxkey and if we wait for the BFO chip, maxkey might be able to ship it out by late april or early may.

I asked them(maxkey) if they can at least get a color that's close to BFO because i can't accept a compromise that big that we're gonna replace the alphas with a completely different color.


I'm in need of your opinion guys, will it be better to wait for the chip and have the set perfectnwith accurate colors but with a longer waiting time or do we have them mimic the color to something that is close but is very uncertain? Please do respond so I know which path to choose. After all this is all for you guys.

Good decision. You worked hard to design a great set and that's the set we want. A few more weeks isn't a big deal. The only thing bothering me was not knowing what was going on. Now that we know the situation and have a time frame, I'm happy. Thanks again for all your hard work, SiegeTowers. This set is going to make my custom build perfect.

I would say not wait as long as it's a close.

1) it's not like this set is targeting any kind of sacred palette. If you were making something in for example 'Carbon' or 'Penumbra' colours you would have a lot more expectation to nail the exact colours because people spend a lot on matching cases, artisans, cables etc. For this, if the colours don't match the renders 100% it's not the end of the world as long as they're reasonably close.

2) the closer it gets to the 180 day cut-off for Paypal disputes the more likely you are to see non delivery disputes / refund claims coming through. Especially considering original quoted timeline was around 2 months.

Hi. I asked maxkey if they can proceed but they don't want to because they're afraid to face complaints from the community due to inaccurate colors. That's why we chose to just expedite the shipping.

Making physical things even with local manufacturers is difficult. Add in international comms and a market where demand is higher than supply and you have a realy tough job. This buy was closed by the time I saw it but you did great work. Hopefully round 2 will come along and be easier :)

I don't mean to put pressure on you personally but I'm getting close to lodging a Paypal dispute for refund against zFrontier because yours isn't the first group buy I've seen them seriously drop the ball with and it's too much money to just leave to chance with a company with such a consistently bad track record. The Paypal dispute window closes at the end of April for me.

Just filed a dispute / refund request with Paypal against zFrontier. I know SiegeTowers put a lot of effort into this but the dispute window is nearly closed and to be fair these were quoted at 3 months while it's now going on 6 months with still no actual signs of manufacturing even started. Even if it's ST's first time running a group buy like this, zFrontier really should have done more to get on top of things instead of letting it drag out in silence for so long.

Did you not see SeigeTowers' post like 3 replies up about production being done in 20 days? (According to Zfrontier)

There hasn't been any BSing with this group buy, so I'd be inclined to believe that.

Hey man. I know things didn't go really well with the scheduling of everything in this and I deeply apologize for that. Maybe my greatest fault in this was not updating the group for the lack or should i say non existent updates from either zfrontier or maxkey even though I email them on a regular basis. Maxkey didn't even inform me or ZF that they were having problems with regards to color sampling up until the end of February. Which was already too late to actually give me enough room to look for solutions. Even after providing alternate options or telling them about the order of color chips from SP, it wasn't until the second week of march that a different person from ZF sent me an email regarding a reassignment of a coordinator with the news about the receipt of the chips from SP. maybe the guy assigned to me before was underperforming. idk. Anyway, up to you man. If you really think waiting isn't worth it anymore then I'm really really sorry. Things didn't go according to plan. I still hope this set will be worth it for everyone.

Don't kick yourself too hard Seige, this was your first GB as a runner and there were some unusual circumstances surrounding it and the Chinese New Year didn't help the lack of communication. I don't disagree that it would of helped if you said there was no communication early on but since the initial update after that you have been phenomenal at updating us on this thread. What happened with this set was similar to how SP got backlogged I feel and honestly everyone in this hobby should be pretty patient regarding anything, we wait forever for a lot of stuff.

SA Night King shipping out this week!!

For the most part the novelties look good, only the night king novelty is slightly different from the original design but it doesn't look bad to me. Also the alternative ESC key is a different color of blue from the render. However neither of these are deal breakers for me, and I'm excited to get this set.

Wow! Shipped on monday, will be delivered today! That's lightning fast from China to The Netherlands! Excited!

Edit: It's here! Looking great, thanks for all the work SiegeTowers!

I Do think the legends are less crisp than my other MaxKey set but that's probably due to this being ice color and the other being black. Other than that I'm happy!

Opening a few packages with the girlfriend:

"Oh this is that awesome keyset I was telling you about based on Lord of the Rings!"

*girlfriend sees novelties*
'...Lord of the Rings? Really?'

"What?..."

'You dingus, this is Game of Thrones! I HAVE to send a picture to so-and-so, they're going to love the send raven key!'

"Idk I just liked the colors."

I'm giving all the novelties to my girlfriend haha
I'm super excited to finally have this! Now to wait for my titanium-grey Melody96. I feel like this set is going to look super dope on a 96key.

Loving my set so far!

The only thing I am even remotely sort of bummed about is the lack of 1u R3 mod keys...
I don't really like the novelties, I know nothing about GOT, and don't really care for it.
Anyone want to trade my set of novelties for an arrow cluster kit?
I want to replace those 3 bottom row keys with something, and the 3 R3 arrows from the cluster would work.

That looks great, I have been mulling over MaxKey lately, how do you find their keycaps compared to SP SA sets in terms of finish, material, shape, quality etc etc ? Will greatly appreciate feedback, anyone else using MaxKey sets feel free to give your inputs.
