...Do you think any other color can match the primary color way?

I've been a bit preoccupied with other things today, but looking at this again I think one of the main problems with the red and blue you have in your mock ups is that they are too saturated in those images and quite jarring.

I had a short play around with the colorize tools. These aren't anywhere near perfect, but with some tweaking you can definitely find colors that will work. How important is it to directly reference the theme? e.g. blue eyes, snow, obsidian etc? If you allow yourself more freedom it will be easier.

...im kinda decided on not including some...

I wouldn't disagree with that decision. There's no rule that says you must have accents, so if it really doesn't suit the theme then why try to force it?

by complicating things i mean the pricing bec we currently have 10 novelties already and adding another set might jack the price. maybe I can just make a poll about this included in the IC form. Bec I personally like the effect made by the ones u made.

someone from reddit (nineleveno) suggested this:

Alternatively, if possible, maybe a separate color kit? Keep the base kit as it is in the mockup on here, then the color kit could be a second set of 10:
Esc x2 (obsidian and blue)
Return x2 (obsidian and blue)
Numpad Return x2 (obisidian and blue)
Arrow cluster (obsidian OR blue)

highly considering thissss

Got it! But i think you should add the ice spear key, and how about The Wall for return or backspace key? and i think the symbols with minimal style and thinner borderline is better (exp: night king is the eyes and crow instead of full face  ^-^ ^-^, same as three eyes raven is only head with three eyes, no need full body :D
The colorway is very sexy but i think the noveltiles need improve. Anyway, I'm in  :p :p :p :p
and many minilar fan will be happy if you add minilar kit :D
Sorry for late comment  :-X :-X :-X

Still no reply from zfrontier so far. I think they're still waiting for maxkey's response regarding the pricing of the set also if the novelties are good for tooling. Will update everyone as soon as they replied. Also, so far 49 people have filled out the IC form since i posted it 9 hours ago.

Recently got a reply from zfrontier. They're still waiting for maxkey's quote of the base kit + novelties. They're still not answering some of my questions like if an add on planck+hhkb+45% comp kit would be possible. Will update asap if they reply.

Maxkeys are the ones who make the keys, OP is choosing zFrontier to proxy the orders. The reason I don't like zFrontier is because their "customer service" is atrocious. They don't seem to care about this community.

they're doing good so far. They tend to make things cheaper and also they have free shipping through dhl if ur order goes higher than a hundred dollars. if ever you will encounter some problems regarding this, i will do my best to help u and make things easier for all of us. :)

I definitely know what is Maxkey and what is zFrontier.   
For the customer service, you might be a bit wrong on this, they are fixing every problem they have with the international shop, they changed their policy to satisfy the customers, afaik they fixed every problem.  I guess your are referring to the double 5-5 of the GMK Ocean Dolch that was fixed by zF, they had to change their policy but they did so.  If you are referring to other, feel free to write it. 

For the ''WHY" it is pretty simple, since OP can't/won't run the GB directly he has to go for a vendor. zF is the only Vendor that make this easy. Unless a good vendor will jump in and say "hey OP I will run the GB for you", thing that probably will not happen, zf is the only one safe bet here.   

Without even talking about Maxkey MOQ, usually should be around 200 orders. Unless this set will be very popular, it is hard to reach even 150 orders with EU/US shops and there aren't many shops that can buy all the extras, while zF can do it. Also, with him it is pretty easy to reach the MOQ since he can sell directly worldwide (no proxy, china included, etc..)

Still no idea m8. ZF said they will give me updates regarding the revision of the novelties today. They're still not answering me regarding the compatibility and accent kits. But i guess after that they can start the GB already. last thing to do after being approved is getting renders. Might get thesiscamper to do my renders but prices are really steep for me coz i recently purchased a new board.

I can see the whole thing with moq, but I personally don't like zFrontier and won't support them, it's my opinion and how I feel. I'm only one person so why does my little opinion matter so much? :D

>The way you said it, it didn't seem like you knew what you were talking about.   

Rofl why,  you just dropped the ''You know nothing, Jon Snow '' randomly  :thinking:   


Yeah the person running the GB usually seeks for someone to run it if he can't, so why OP should bother, having multiple NO by vendors if zF that is a good vendor is already ok, and mainly is a INTERNATIONAL vendor (so OP doesn't need 2+ proxy). 

I do believe you can have any opinion you want, i mean if you say ''I don't like X" i'm fine with this, i'm not discussing this, i'm just answering you because you wrote: 

Quote
The reason I don't like zFrontier is because their "customer service" is atrocious. They don't seem to care about this community
   

and to me this seems like unfounded accusation and for this i asked you if there is any case of unfixed problem about zF that i might be not aware of.  For example i saw people accusing zF for a DHL fault that is honestly hilarious \_(ツ)_/ so at this point i don't really know what is your real reason behind your hate towards them. 

On a side note, whatever if you want to skip a set that you like because of the picked vendor, well i don't understand you but feel free to do so :D  (yeah as SiegeTowers said, i was trying to convince you to join the GB) 

Peace!

This set is going through zFrontier? That's a bummer, really wanted to get in on this. :rolleyes:
 

Oh you prefer to wait more than a year to have this?

Maxkeys are the ones who make the keys, OP is choosing zFrontier to proxy the orders. The reason I don't like zFrontier is because their "customer service" is atrocious. They don't seem to care about this community.

I definitely know what is Maxkey and what is zFrontier.   
For the customer service, you might be a bit wrong on this, they are fixing every problem they have with the international shop, they changed their policy to satisfy the customers, afaik they fixed every problem.  I guess your are referring to the double 5-5 of the GMK Ocean Dolch that was fixed by zF, they had to change their policy but they did so.  If you are referring to other, feel free to write it. 

For the ''WHY" it is pretty simple, since OP can't/won't run the GB directly he has to go for a vendor. zF is the only Vendor that make this easy. Unless a good vendor will jump in and say "hey OP I will run the GB for you", thing that probably will not happen, zf is the only one safe bet here.   

Without even talking about Maxkey MOQ, usually should be around 200 orders. Unless this set will be very popular, it is hard to reach even 150 orders with EU/US shops and there aren't many shops that can buy all the extras, while zF can do it. Also, with him it is pretty easy to reach the MOQ since he can sell directly worldwide (no proxy, china included, etc..)

The way you said it, it didn't seem like you knew what you were talking about. As for the vendors, I don't understand why you say a "good" vendor would approach this. From what I've seen, the person with the idea seeks for someone to run the gb through. On rare occasions I actually see a vendor jump in and say "Hey!!!! Let me run this for you!!!!!". I can see the whole thing with moq, but I personally don't like zFrontier and won't support them, it's my opinion and how I feel. I'm only one person so why does my little opinion matter so much? :D

>The way you said it, it didn't seem like you knew what you were talking about.   

Rofl why,  you just dropped the ''You know nothing, Jon Snow '' randomly  :thinking:   


Yeah the person running the GB usually seeks for someone to run it if he can't, so why OP should bother, having multiple NO by vendors if zF that is a good vendor is already ok, and mainly is a INTERNATIONAL vendor (so OP doesn't need 2+ proxy). 

I do believe you can have any opinion you want, i mean if you say ''I don't like X" i'm fine with this, i'm not discussing this, i'm just answering you because you wrote:

and to me this seems like unfounded accusation and for this i asked you if there is any case of unfixed problem about zF that i might be not aware of.  For example i saw people accusing zF for a DHL fault that is honestly hilarious \_(ツ)_/ so at this point i don't really know what is your real reason behind your hate towards them. 

On a side note, whatever if you want to skip a set that you like because of the picked vendor, well i don't understand you but feel free to do so :D  (yeah as SiegeTowers said, i was trying to convince you to join the GB) 

Peace!

._. I don't understand why people take things so personal here. I said this is going through zFrontier and you said would you rather wait a year like if I had mentioned to take this set through SP. zFrontier have also tried to run sets without asking the original "designer" and try to profit off of it and they had a super lame excuse. As for you not understanding why I won't support it, it's called morals. Same reason why people don't want to get in on CtrAlt gb's or support originative. There's always excuses for silly things that happen. Anyways, didn't mean to strike offense on you or the op here. It's cool if you like zFrontier, but was there really a need to take it all the way there? Lol. Regardless of this silly post of my little opinion, gl to this gb. I'll still be following cause the set is nice and can't wait to see the pics. Hopefully the date is soon so this goes out into the wild.

Just got word from ZF. All of the novelties are now approved. Although the planck kit will not make the final cut. Now I'm gonna ask you guys, Would you want us to copy the compatibility of MAxkey calmdepths? or just go as far as Lime's compatibility? let me know because quotes will be coming out soon. ;)

Lime since we have novelties too.  It will be too expensive with the Calm Depths kit since we have to add novelties.  Really no reason to have another $120+ kit via maxkey, better go for as cheap as possible imho  ;D

Heavens, this looks amazing. I prefer accents that match the alpha legends, hence complementing rather than contrasting the core colourway, but the kit is amazing without a third main colour thrown into the mix. Good luck - will be in fo sho!  :thumb:

Good to know! thank you for that. I actually tried doing that but it looks kinda awkward so i just tried to account Night King's eyes and the dragon glass.
