Has anybody on this side of the pond received theirs yet? My shipping tracking number apparently ended once the package cleared the international exchange center at the Rome airport. I figure it should be another 10 days past that date, which is tomorrow.

Packages to and from Europe are routed through NYC, which has been shut down for the past few months. There are less planes and less cargo space for packages. The number of flights are very limited. This creates a bottleneck.

I think cargo is still moving, but probably slower than usual. Original delivery date was May 25, but I figure it would take a few days longer. Tracking indicated it made it to the far end gateway on May 19. Not sure who the US carrier will end up being.

Yes, there are bottlenecks, the problem is that the american part of the trip is manged by USPS. We started to use UPS from today, its more expansive but its really faster... Gamer's Armory received yesterday, but we sent with UPS the big load, and i know that only a player with a PO Box that is in NY state received the bundle until now. We apologize but if only we had known...

No problem, it's taken 3 weeks for packages from England to get here (used to be about 10 days). All part of the current situation. I'll know to watch for the mail truck vs. the UPS truck.
