As far as I know it's already been released. Mine arrived a couple days ago.

We send product to all of our distributors at basically the same time, so it should be on it's way to the various European distributors. It's just a matter of how long it takes for shipping over there.

What? That is really weird. And when I looked on the order status for my academy core set, it still says "processed" and not "shipped" even though it already arrived!

Now that I think of it, they never did announce who the winner of the BGG contest is did they? Now I'm wondering if maybe the copy I have now is the contest prize and not the copy my sister preordered for me...

What's going on? This is really weird.

I don't mean to be overly critical, but I really wish Arcane Wonders would make a bigger deal out of Mage Wars new releases.  I know there's a lot of potential complications (dealing with multiple companies, shipping, etc.) but this thread is evidence of just how confusing the Academy release has been for the fan-base.  If pretty much no one on the official forums is sure what's going on, then it's a pretty safe bet that more casual or normal players are completely out of the loop.  At the very least, an announcement of the release date on both the storefront and the forums would have been nice.  It's very hard to build hype and pre-orders for a product when no one knows when it's going to come out.  I'm not upset that the release was delayed (multiple times); all I'm asking for is more clear communication so that the fans know what to expect.

Well, for my country, there are only two big distributors. One in UK and one in Germany. Most stores are getting their stuff from them. German distributor doesnt have that in his list of good or it was already "sold out".

I think that for the rest of the european countries small enough that they didnt have their own distributor (i mean switz here, not france :) ) they are working with same companies.

I will ask my friends and my local store about current situation. I was living in impression that 9.12 is a release date :)

It's not hit UK webstores yet, or FLGS that I have seen. There were a couple of webstores put it up a couple of months back (being hopeful) but they didn't actually have it...

My FLGS said that they arrived at the distributor (in Canada) and that they should get it by the end of the week! *fingercrossed*
