Hey all,

This is Tony (end) from Cartel. I just wanted to restate that the information I've provided in the most active reddit post about this, is all we know. We really wanted to get this information out as quick as we could once we found out the state of things, we felt everyone has been hanging long enough waiting for an update and it was a disservice to you to not inform you as soon as we could. I don't have any hard and specific information as to what made CapsUnlocked change his mind, beyond wanting to focus the extra money elsewhere in the business. If that was a specific buy or multiple buys, or just a different non-gb product? I do not know, and I prefer not to speculate. I'll leave specifics to Caps, should he choose to share.

For those who joined through Cartel, my apologies we couldn't let you know about this sooner (if we had known sooner, we would have shared sooner) and start your refund process sooner. As stated in the original thread on reddit, we're processing the refunds now and should be done in no more than a week. If you haven't seen some sign of your refund being processed back to you by the 7th, contact us through the website, reddit PMs, the major mechkeys discord (I'm listed under the vendor category on that discord and get private messages to both my computer and phone), whatever works best for you.

You (Cartel) should remove the novelties and just run the colourway. GMK grey on black, done.

I'm just going to put this out here: I'd like to see this turn into a full coverage version of the EXENT keyset.

I'd be all over this, 100%. I joined specifically for the gray on black color way. Drop the novelties and that would cut costs, correct? May pick up additional buyers for that reason alone.

I know that takes away from the original theme and some were interested in the novelties. But still - just an idea  :thumb:

While I've considered doing just that since I was quite disappointed the set got cancelled on me, this is still a good bit CU's design, and even copying the kit without the novelties could be a bit too far past what people would consider stealing the design. I have actually PM'd CU to see if they'd not care if I did try to run a grey on black set completely unrelated to Doom, because I felt that was the proper way to try going about it. If successful in my inquiry, I've got some plans for the set that I think could turn out well if applied correctly. If I don't hear back from CU on the matter, I'm not completely certain what to do about it since I'd like to make a set with these colors happen, but don't want to run over people's feet.

Without the novelties it's not CU's design, as this colourway has been run before on the Exent set. Additionally, as Cartel has already showed interest in running this, I think they should be the ones to do it, as they were heavily involved in this GB.

Oh certainly - didn't mean for that to sound like "take it and run". I completely understand why that's a good approach in a scenario like this. Just crossing my fingers that we'll see a gray on black set in the near(ish) future.

I'd be interested in letting them have it to run as we're pretty good buddies, I'm just wanting to get my hands on the set design for it really since I don't get much of an opportunity to throw together a set without having to worry about all the logistics behind it. Plus I think I could do a decent bit to help the kit design out.

As long as a GMK Grey on Black keyset with modern compatibility comes out, Iíll join.

I was in it for the base key colors too, not the novelties. If there's an opportunity to re-run this with just the grey on black, I'd be in!

This is exactly what I want. Frankly, I wasn't interested in the Doom novelties at all, wasn't even planning on using them.

Can someone make this happen?

Donut, I don't see why we'd have any issue with collaborating on it if you have some ideas and get the greenlight from CU (I agree with you on that, matter of respect even if the core colorway has shown up elsewhere). Obviously sales logistics is the only real question mark since we're both US retailers, but I imagine we could all sort something fair out.

Let me know what you hear and think tho, maybe there's something we can all make happen here.

Good news my lads

I'll start throwing together some kit mockups. One thing to consider is right now GMK is pretty saturated, so this will probably get put off until we can find a good spot to run it in where it'll do well.

Yeah Donut! Youíre quickly going to become the mono-color keyset man if youíre not careful.

Good question. I'm in for GMK gray-on-black, but what's the plan for refunding existing orders?

I think with a smaller base kit like GMK Minimal and better pricing this could really work
