Don't get me wrong i don't blame anyone but me for the current state. I predicted the pricing in most cases correctly because i have little bit experience with development of keysets but i treated GMK GB almost like an SP GB by offering too much at the same time. Well and ofc i underestimated how the kits will be bought.

Itís still early bro. This drop wasnít unexpected but I wasnít ready to make a decision a sets yet. Iíll be hopping in a week or so.

Fulfilled my obligations, pulled the trigger on Umka, Beezarre and Cadet kits. If I have some cash left by the end of the drop, I will go for few more. Thanks again T0mb3ry for setting up this drop and accommodating so many different requests from members.

You realize your selection doesnít include the cream colored number row or spacebar right?

I guess you have already GMK Carbon round 1 base which you can combine with the cadet kit otherwise you need one of the base sets.

They might just be going for orange number row and spacebar. Though I could be wrong.

I am also quite wondering. There are almost 2k base sets from round 1 in the wild and i thought Carbon Cadet would be popular because Carbon Cadet (and other kits) can be combined with round 1 base set. I guess offering Carbon Cadet was bad idea.

I doubt CC kit made any impact on others sale. Those who didnt participate in R1, would definitely need base + other kits, for those whom already participated in R1, would be interested in R0/5 update + other kits.  CC was more of a surprise cherry on top.My heart was only on Beezarre and went for CC as I couldnt resist post Space Cadet. I was planning on base set for R0/5 but went for Umka; it was too delicious to pass up after viewing the rendering from Oblotzky.  Honestly, I may add more to my order once my cashflow is more clearer by the mid of this month. It could be just timing, folks getting their paychecks later in the month, rent and other expenses due in first week of Nov etc etc.

As previously (in IC thread) i've noted, the upgrade kit was removed because it was only 30$ cheaper than the base kit. Say its price was 130$ which makes no sense. :/

Certainly, I am aware and not complaining, just giving my 0.02$ on the sales figures.

This is my initial vision for Carbon Cadet. Busy alphas need busy modifiers. Not denying that Umka with Carbon Cadet looks amazing.

Carbon Cadet is one of the main reasons I'm joining, so sexy. They can help me design better function layers if I pick keys that have memorable symbols on them.

Definitely going for the Carbon base, Umka mods with novelties and salty keys. Just waiting to spread the credit over two month's statements. Ah. I thought I could save some money before this started, but, this hobby is really bad for my finances.

At the minimum I'll go for the Umka mods as the 2 base kits don't excite me anymore - I was a R1 buyer and sold the set a while back. With Umka mods I could either mix that with my partial Dolch set (missing F-keys) and have a somewhat similar colourway to Umka+Boneyard alphas.

Carbon cadet really made it tough for me as I wanted to just splurge and buy all the kits needed to cover a TKL. But then I joined the push for Susuwatari last week (that $100 @1000MQ was SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!!) and that was that :)

I think you said it best yourself T0mb3ry, treating GMK buy like an SP buy was not the way and flooding the drop with kits did not help (classic case of Paradox of Choice). And of course new GMK pricing + R0/R5 cost don't help either.

Someone corrects me if I'm wrong, but it seems like Ivory mods + Carbon cadet still did not cut it to cover a TKL? Like you'd still need a spacebar from the base kit right?

Correct.  You would also need the numbers row and the punctuation keys from a base kit.

Exactly. Carbon Cadet is not full alpha replacement (like boneyard or beezarre alphas). For full alphas its missing number row, punctuation keys, numpad and spacebars.

Carbon Cadet was not planned as full alphas replacement. It was thought to be used also with GMK Carbon R1 base set. So it includes only necessary Cadet alpha keys. Carbon Cadet is more a novelty.

Thanks for the info. Damn. Just some quick math it seems like my planned carbon cadet set would run over $300. Rough life GG. Will see if I could gather the funds by the end of the drop to join! I just wish some of the options could be more flexible, but I guess we all got different choices so it will never be an easy task to please everyone.

At this pace it's looking like a bunch of them won't even hit MOQ which is definitely a bummer.

Don't worry. Depending on how far a kit is away from hitting its MOQ Massdrop might step in and make the kit happen anyway. That happened already in previous drops. Also you will be able to adjust your order or discard it if your desired kit don't make it.

I wonder if an R2.5 with Carbon Cadet full alpha, Cadet boneyard, and say Beezarre, plus novelties / mods would have been cleaner.

E.g., basic stuff first, neat stuff right after it ships.

I do feel the same as others with too much choice, and (paradoxically) not enough choice (Boneyard Cadet!).

I am truly surprised at #s for Beezarre, I thought I would hit 500 MOQ within a week. Its orange, how can anyone not love it? They weren't offered in R1 and GMK orange alphas are as unicorn as they come. Hopefully we atleast hit 100 or near it so that kit is not dropped.

@T0mb3ry,

Just a thought for the under performing kits; if possible, can the MOQ be changed to 50? It may lead to a little price increase. At this point I am sure those who have participated in some of these kits want to buy them and I personally wont mind paying a slight extra to get it done.

Changing the kits/MOQ during the drop is not possible (or at least not as easy to make). There was an exception in SP SA Carbon R2 with warning signs, which have already succeeded - so warning signs kit could be just locked as completed. We should wait until the end and see how it goes.

I joined for Bone base, Umka mods, Boneyard alphas. Was hoping to make two monotone kits. Definitely a little apprehensive that all those will make it. Kind of riding on Bone base to make it other wise the rest is a no go. Here's hoping, cause that all bone 910 looks reallllllly good.

I joined for Umka mods and Carbon Cadet but both needs to reach 250MOQ for the $$$ to make sense for me. If only 150MOQ is reached, I will have to pick 1 and drop 1 :(

This drop being sandwiched between 2 MT3 drops may have some effect - Susuwatari had great price and people, including me, went for it which limit spending now; and Godspeed teasee draws away some interest for sure.

Here's to hoping numbers will pick up a bit somehow!

I highly recommend everyone to go for this drop, as I have a feeling there may not be a R3 or may be it will happen but prob after 3-5 yr wait.
