Shipping is a numbers game, and while I sell on Ebay, and do pretty good qty per month, no way LRG could package like I do. As stated in the past, the numbers of damages are very small, and an overall cost of their business model. If I dealt with more items, I may adopt this as well, it just comes down to losses, and whats acceptable, and what isn't.

 

I personally can't afford to deal with insurance, or damaged items in general, as I'm not making much to begin with. I figured this would be the outcome of asking to pay for the card protector, that's why I offered my original comments, as it would have been better to just add the .50 to the shipping charge, and include the case for free, and no one would have been the wiser. As no one could really say how much cost is involved with shipping the binder to begin with. Yes, it's a "free" item, but unless this is someones first day here, these comments should surprise no one!

 

This is why major retailers don't care about packaging, as for every one person here who complains when something arrives damaged, there are probably 25-50 customers who don't care. So it's worth it for those places to take the loss and move on. LRG is operating in the same fashion. I understand not adding a box or other things to shipping, as they cost a decent amount, and forcing it on the customer, may or may not be a good idea. But to have a .50 protector offered, it would have made more sense to charge for it, no one would have known, then then LRG would be getting praise for including it for free, with the free card. It wouldn't really be free, but it wouldn't matter, as no one would know that.

Would have to buy them separately, just like the Mutant Mudds releases.

Just don't buy anything. Then you don't have to constantly bitch about their business.

I'm sorry I believe this is an open air forum and given the amount of bitching done by others I'll chime in my bitching when I feel necessary :P. 

Thanks. Also "bitching" might be seen by some as feedback on things LRG can adjust in the future. 50 cents for a sleeve just throw the fuckin sleeve in you dont care about profits right? lol.

Gotta say, I much preferred the higher res postcards to these trading cards. Collecting the cards is as added nuisance to an already stressful hobby.
Just not feeling it.

I like the cards way more than the sticker/postcard but I don't plan on trying to get them all. For the postcard/stickers, it was easy because it was one of each and there were no "rares" or anything. For the cards, I was thinking it was introduced as an alternative to the postcard/sticker but now it seems like a separate market altogether. I'll just get the ones that come with the games I bought- though with NT, I got 2x of the same cards so I'm already missing one.:-P

First Night Trap came damaged, insert was ripped and manual had a rip on it. Got it replaced, had to pay for shipping back, which sucked, but whatever. Then they reused the box I sent the defective one in which was already starting to get weak to send me back my new one. USPS decided it would be cool to jam it into my parcel locker smashing the box and the CE. Can't get anyone from LRG to respond. Fun times.

I don't understand, if what you sent back was a standard game - why was your replacement a CE?

Any idea if YS will arrive before Caladrius? Or is it like 50/50 chances? 

 

I bought one of the display stands with Caladrius and I'd like to grab another in a future order...but if YS is coming first I might just make a separate order for one now.

That doesn't matter.  If the art being used is under copyright (which it likely would be), just removing the LRG logo doesn't fix that problem.

We are back to floating discs again?

 

Two things to fix the shipping issues:

 

1.  Use standard boxes (no logos or any costly customization to the box) and put the extra money into bubble wrap or packing peanuts.  Having a lot of empty space in a box leads to damage.  Packing a box full of purchased items doesn't offer protection either as the items then are providing the structural support for the entire center of box.  Basic packaging logic.

 

2.  Drop flashy plastic bags with tiny bubbles to a more standard shipping bag with bigger bubbles.  The smaller bubbles offer LESS protection from crushing and make it easier to pop a game out of it's spindle.  They do hold up well in wet conditions, but most bubble mailers never see wet conditions at a level that would cause any damage anyway and the bubble part of the mailer keeps moisture from ever getting inside the bag.

 

That's not the only difference.   It's also a matter of caring that the item arrives in the same condition it shipped in.   I know it's hard to care about widgets produced in bulk that can be replaced, but try to put as much effort into your products as people have to put in to buy them.  People aren't buying these things blindly but jumping through all of these artificial hoops to make a purchase.

 

Also please don't complain about the cost of making the trading cards when it's a self inflicted cost.  If the cost is a factor, don't do it.

 

 

 

When I looked at the card list before I don't remember seeing that on there.  Nice find.  There are a bunch of other games on there that haven't come out too.

We actually get a better rate on boxes with our logo vs boxes without. We don't pay extra for that. Our return rate is less than 50 copies for any given run, which equates to around a .01% order defect rate. We've done our research here. Wrapping an item in bubble wrap (which would really do very little to change our ODR) takes around 15 - 30 seconds of extra time to accomplish. Extrapolate that to 10,000 packages a month and you're talking about an additional 41 - 83 hours of work that would MASSIVELY slow down our shipping operation to maybe prevent damage on 5 - 10 copies. That's an additional $625 - $1,250 worth of labor expenses (not counting material expenses for bubble wrap) to save $150 - $250 worth of games. In so many ways, it makes more sense to just continue doing things the way we're doing them. It's easier to replace games than to prevent whatever damage is being caused to them.

 

Most copies that arrive damaged have been brutalized by the postal service, run over by cars, or just plain mishandled in a way that bubble wrap wouldn't fix.

 

For any argument about loose discs - I can pop a PS4 disc loose through an incredibly thick acrylic security case at Best Buy with no effort in less than five seconds. The notion that larger bubbles would prevent that is completely ridiculous and false. I don't even know where one would obtain size 0 bubble mailers with "larger bubbles". I don't think such a thing is even an advertised feature of any mailers.

 

I'm also not complaining about the cost of the cards - I'm laying out why we're not going to give people plastic protective cases for free on top of the cards. We're not a charity. If you care about the card, it's not a stretch to ask for $0.50. That not only covers the cost of the plastic case, but also covers the labor to insert the card and ship it in the case. In the end, the cards are freebies - you're right in saying we don't have to offer them.

No, this is not OK. It also makes people think the 32X variant exists when it doesn't.

I don't know the legalities of selling copyrighted images, but the listing clearly states it is (Canceled), and the same info is given in the description, so I don't see anyone thinking this was an official release. He's only sold 1 in 24hrs, and if this was associated with LRG in anyway, it would have sold out in a few minutes.

Yeah, I thought the same thing. Probably not much spent on production, and then charging a decent rate on top of that, I don't see these selling out super quick.

Except they totally can in packs, which we'll offer later on.

Are these packs nothing but golds, rares, and ultra rares ?  Was referring the quantities produced.  Only 10% are golds, then there are intentionally rare ones.  It's basically futile from the outset.  The 10 lucky people who do get some ultra rare card much less a gold one are not going to trade it for someone's 3 duplicates of a generic card, and I doubt even getting all common cards in their gold and silver variants is even an attainable or realistic goal.

 

I know it's free and and supposed to be fun, but my collector OCD is screaming NOPE NOPE NOPE at these cards and their manufactured rarity.  Which is fine by me, I need to remind myself I collect video games, not every piece of plastic and paper in the world.

Never try to collect modern sports cards. Getting complete sets is almost impossible b/c rookie cards are intentionally short printed (but are still listed numerically as part of the main set). Inserts are also impossible as a lot of them are 1 of 1s.

As a rule of thumb, don't collect things that are designed solely to be collected.  Cards are one of the worst offenders with being doomed from the start.  Then you add in the lottery stuff they do.  #234 of 900, only 1 ever made, randomly sent out to Walgreens all over the world, or something equally stupid.

When it comes to the packs, stuff like the SMRPG and B&C card might actually end up being fairly common even though the overall print quantity is not high versus other cards. For reference, 1,500 of each were printed, I think. When you consider that the packs are being assembled from leftover cards (usually only 500 - 1,000 left of each card) and these - these actually end up being more common in the overall mix since we have basically the full run of them available for the packs.

 

I haven't yet found anyone trying to collect the gold cards specifically. The reason they exist is to just give people something exciting to occasionally find. It's supposed to be a nice bit of temporary excitement. I don't intend for people to attempt to collect all the gold cards exclusively - that'd be like someone thinking ALL the autograph cards and inserts are necessary for a full set of basketball cards. No one needs all the silver and all the gold cards for a full set, anyone who is thinking that is inflicting that on themselves in the same way anyone going after sports card inserts are.

Forgot why I dropped in in the first place - the binders arrived from Ultra-Pro and they aren't sealed like the sample was so we're actually going to put the card into the binder knowing that we don't have to break any kind of seal to do that.

One I sent back was the CE. I kinda wish I kept that one, because it was in better shape than the replacement. But the replacement was a USPS fault jamming it in my mailbox and squishing the box. Just sucks because it's not LRG fault, so I think I may be SOL. I hate USPS, especially the guy in my neighborhood.

To break the usual monotony of the LRG thread with another troupe usually found in here.

Here's MY ebay, I'm not a POS (I don't think, but this is my personal opinion). I am too poor from the vidya games to support RL and LRG habits. Not shitty printed covers lol. Have decent, recent feedback. Recently sold my sealed Cursed Castilla for BO of 120$. Throw me a decent offer (As my prices are hopeful at best and throw in a 'Cag ;) ' or something and I might take the ebay BO BS more seriously).

Sorry. :(
I understand the Morton's for the reseller hate, but I won't stoke any fire and it looks like it got deleted anyway (I will consider that my warning and keep that kinda stuff in the appropriate forum location).  Just trying to get some bread for a collection I was actually trying to cultivate and can't maintain due to being over-frivolous.
