Good Night @NineLine! I pre-ordered on Steam. Will I receive miles on the website?

ED made the right decision! If it's not ready, it's better to postpone the launch. The important thing is that Apache will be released on DCS.

 

No, I am so sorry, if I could I would move everyone over to the standalone, I do get why people use Steam, heck I have 152 games on it, but we just cant do the cool things with ED Miles that we can on the standalone. I will ask if there is anything we could do, but we are somewhat limited by Valve I am afraid.

Would refunding on steam and buying direct be a work around to this? Just a thought. 
 

FWIW, I personally prefer to buy direct so 100% off my purchase ends up in the hands of the devs and not a %age going to a middle man anyway, but that’s personal preference. ED do a great job and I try to support them as best I can.

Too bad, but I can personally wait another month (or more) for polishing of the AI and other stuff. Wouldn’t want George to go postal on the maiden voyage with this advanced bird😅

Regarding the miles, I understand from the newsletter that anyone who bought the stand-alone version of the AH-64 module, will get their miles topped up to 8,500. Well, I did and the module is showing up as bought on my profile page but my miles are  still showing ‘0’. Did I misunderstand the newsletter or…?

That was so expected to be honest.

Their first planned dates are 99% of the times never achieved.

That's true.

thanks for answering! one idea would be to give a discount coupon on Steam for the next purchase. It's just an idea! Of course the coupon would be equivalent to 8,500 miles. Thanks!

Just seen ED have given me 8500 miles ($8.50) for delay in release of Apache, as a good will gesture. I'm impressed, very nice of them. Really good customer service. I think I will put this towards buying the JF-17, whilst on sale. Thank you ED, nice touch.

Yep, I think Steam hace discount coupons that can be applied to some particular products even (i.e: DCS mods)

This way, It could be equivalent to the standalone good will gesture and ED can get some aditional unexpected purchases.

The 8500 miles would seem to indicate an ultimate release price of $85 despite the 79.99 currently advertised.  Still very fair for a complex module and quite an incentive to do the pre-order thing with an rough 50% total package discount if you take into account the air miles.

Steam honoured my refund request in about three-hours but I won't see the cash back in my Steam wallet for a few days. They say they don't usually refund after 14 days, but my pre-order was from October. This one of the reasons I like Steam, it does offer certain conveniences.

This is great news for me, I’d spent all my money on Lego for me and my daughter (including a £650 Millennium Falcon) so was broke till January.

In my excitement at having fun things to do with my daughter I’d completely forgot about the AH64, so though I’m probably in the minority I’m very thankful.

Earlier in the year when ED seemed to be suggesting it'd be done by the end of this year I just couldn't believe it.  But then I got a little belief in me in these later months when it seemed it was all steam ahead and vids were coming out and release months were announced.  Ah well.  

Truth is, ED tries to be ambitious with their releases and often misses the mark, but if you go in knowing that, you can stave off disappointment.  I'm a bit disappointed cause I didn't listen to myself, but not angry at them.  I always thought this was a complex module and getting it done in the time they were saying definitely felt like record time.  Better a delayed release than having to hear from the pitchfork crowd after the F-16.

Only thing that I not okay with is that they started collecting money and hyping with videos and then failed to deliver. If they said it in the beginning of the october and started preorder now it would be whole different story. Its obvious that they actually knew, because of only one wags video posted after preorder trailer... 

Woah, woah. Are you trying to say that people shouldn't preorder games?

I have a pretty big steam collection myself and no general problem with it - and I also started with DCS on steam.

Anyhow, the moment I learned there was a standalone version of it and I could transfer my modules, it was a split second decision to do so. Never ever did I regret it since.

I would highly recommend it to anybody. Only advantages, no downsides IMHO! 👍

 

On Topic! Thanks for the extra miles, much appreciated, and whilst I'm disappointed that I won't be able to tinker with it during the holidays, I 100% support the decision!

Actually, I'm perfectly fine with the delay.

Yes, a few more weeks of waiting, but it will be totally worth it, looking at the complexity of this bird.

You won't be getting that full complexity for quite sometime. :)

Surely not the full, but what we've seen so far looks like quite fun and complex to me.

In any case. I've waited 25 Years since Janes Longbow.

 

So I am pretty confident whatever comes our way early 2022 won't disappoint me. 🙂

Of course, anyone entering into Early Access modules should fully expect not everything will be working at launch, its pretty much the definition of Early Access.
