Is there some kind of treatment that prevents oxidation on the brass plate?

I'm also curious about this. Will we need to apply a treatment ourselves?

There will have a process for brass plate to prevent oxidation but i have to say it just prevent oxidation not so quickly rather than permanent.

What will the process be?

Would you recommend us to apply an additional treatment/finish? If so, what would work well in addition to the factory's treatment? I'm new to this and not aware of the different options.

Most they(factory) do for prevent oxidation is put the brass into a chemical water sink to let the brass have a protect minor surface. And it's same with the EVE do.

I haven't found pictures of all the colors offered. The only colors I've seen in pictures are: Dark Gray, Army Green, and Purple I think. I wish there were some pictures of all colors offered so we could all make a choice before the GB starts tomorrow. Maybe they'll be available in the group buy form?

Yeah, it would look really good but what if I want to change caps. Green doesn't go with all color schemes but gray does. Ughh, I'm so torn.

As long as the Dark Gray hasn't changed and it's still the same exact color as the prototype, it'll be either the Army Green or Gray for me.

Is anyone getting the PCB addon when the group buy starts? I was planning on getting that since I've heard good things about it and it's rather inexpensive. But I've been looking at the Zeal60 and now I'm not too sure haha. x.x

I <3 Zeal60, but its not worth it if you don't care about RGB. There are plenty of cheaper options. For me tho it's an easy choice for a purple and brass case, cause new Zeal60s even have a gold USB port. The Zeal60 PCBs are EXTREMELY high quality. I'm guessing the next best quality wise (like well manufactured) is probably the Gon60, and then I don't really know after that.

But I also already have a spare Zeal60 pcb, so is easy choice.

The RGB would be a nice feature. But god damn. it is gorgeous, talk about the Rolls Royce of PCBs. I think I'll have to get it, I can't resist all that gold haha. I'll definitely be getting Zeals stabilizers though. Combine all that will some Holtites and Zealio 78gs. Perfect keyboard. :cool:

Just a head up the google form will open 10 minutes later.

Every complete order will receive a confirmation email which contains a link that allows you to make changes before the GB form closes.

And for who want to buy 2+sets pls submit another new form to order.

Thanks for your time and really appreciate all your supports <3

So what switches do you guys plan on using? I'm going with 78g Zealios, I was going to go with the 67g version since I heard they're the most tactile of the bunch but the R9 version of the 78g is supposed to be just as tactile.
