[GB] GMK DMG Lightning Round Two
« on: Sat, 26 October 2019, 16:58:24 »
A Hearty Hello from TheKeyCompany!
(Courtesy of Otanishock)

Christmas morning 1989. Many of us tore into a wrapped package containing one of these and played it tirelessly until you ran out of AA batteries. Or until it got dark. Or until our parents yelled at us to take out the trash or shovel snow. GMK DMG is our take on this classic. Bring a bit of nostalgia to your battle station or workspace.



This buy will be open from November 1st to November 16th on TKC's Main website.

I'm not entirely in love with the set but I'm extremely tempted to join just for the fact that you ran it again so people wouldn't get killed with aftermarket prices.

Well all orders placed be filled or is there a limit?
If there is a limit, can we know what the specific time on the 16th this is opening?

I think that is kind of unfair. They have a full docket of sets being run, and often times will run R2/R3s down the road. Though I think it's awesome that TKC is doing this, I think it's kind of unrealistic to expect this to happen for every hyped set.

That's pretty passive aggressive.
Singling out one keyset by one vendor and saying they are less considerate because you missed out on a keyset that ran for an entire month.
Dixie is one of the vendors where I don't think twice about before making a purchase; they have been outstanding with every purchase I have made so far... And you're gonna sit there and put them down because you skipped out on a set where you had an entire month to pull the trigger.

I agree it's silly to think a vendor is being selfish by not doing another one immediately (every set will get a R2/R3 eventually unless there is no demand). A large number in this hobby are addicted to hype trains and immediate gratification while always looking for someone else to blame for their sadness.

Thanks for running this again! The aftermarket prices were crazy and this is the set to put on a 40-50% keyboard like the TMO.

The most they know was updated in April, would be 4-8 month delay.  So, we should expect it to ship Fall to early Winter.

This was posted in discord on April 3rd:

Gee, you know.. I wasn't aware /s

They've also had a lot of legending issues lately too. To the point that at least one set I know of retroactively changed their mod legend style.

Surprisingly I did not.

But really I had no idea how much GMK sets would be delayed due to it since have not really paid much attention lately so rather out of the loop on times, not that It really bothers me. I've been in this hobby long enough that I know what comes with joining a GB.
