I just ordered the V2 McLaren rim here in Australia and it is on pre order with availability June 30 2021, is that just an approximate date? Could it come earlier or later or is this a guaranteed date?
that's an approximate date. As you already write, can come earlier or later aswell.
So was the rim already released only to the likes of reviewers to build hype and this is the first batch of public v2's or did the first batch just sell out?
This is the third or fourth batch.... :D
that's why normal customers already got them? This is not the first batch, where does this thinking come from?
Got mine at 23.12.2020 and I´m normal customer 😉
This thinking comes from my brain, is that okay for me to wonder 🤔
You can wonder as much as you like mate. No issues with anyone wondering.
The way it was written though was implementing something different though. 😉
Now that you cleared the air and got info that already 3 batches have been sold out I think it answers any assumptions that maybe there. 😎
no problem at all, but wondering and actual evidence is completely different :)
Why all the hostility to what seems a perfectly reasonable question. The OP simply asked if these had been on sale to the public yet or if the youtube reviews were on promotional samples that Fanatec sent to 'influencers' - something they often do to build interest in new products.
I answered the OP's question in a normal manner imo and there is nothing hostile about my second answer lmao
Thank you mate, i asked what i thought was a reasonable question with no intent to put crap on Fanatec or anyone!!
All these comments jumping on me like i was saying something i clearly wasn't had me confused, but hey, we are on the internet and most likely dealing with kids so don't put any concern in what they say.
I got my answer and ordered the rim, now to just wait for whenever it gets re-released ;)
Thank you, this was all i wanted to know :)
What did i "implementing something different" ?
What evidence did you provide or did i use to ask my questions?
You implementation was that Fanatec is keeping on purpose the wheels on pre-order status to build hype (your words) and collect money first from the pre-orders and scam them (some other people's thoughts that we have red in the forum when pre-orders dates are being changed) while you could see a gazillion posts regarding the same wheels (and problems reported for the same wheel) which means that it isn't the first batch.
Sorry if you feel jumped by a bunch of kids (let me know your address so I can sent you flowers for calling me a minor ❤️) but recently we (the daily visitors of the forum) are a bit fed up of reading allegations and questions from people that cannot even read even the manual correct or to win a few clicks for their sites/channels (no you are not one of them).
Peace out and I hope you enjoy soonest possible your new wheel. ✌️
you call our answers to your statement and questions dealing with kids, because you don't like the answers?
Read Alex's post above to get the answer on what you actually asked and ofc you didn't want to put "crap on Fanatec" with calling them out to only send out the wheels to youtubers yet.
Par for the course with these two - they seem to be conflating your question with other peoples comments in completely separate threads. That combined with poor English skills (implementation!) may have led to them perceiving negativity into your question that only exists in their heads. At the same time they still try to delude themselves that there is no hostility in their responses and they are only trying to be helpful.🤣
Gary I just respect your age and will not be replying to you with my poor English skills that they are enough to put you back in place. But anyway.... I will just keep ignoring you and your posts like I have been doing for some time now. ✌️
talking about hostility heh? Have a good day!
Well i'm glad you know what my intent was! You seem to have my simple questions confused, i guess in thanks to your "daily visits" here and from what seems from your comment quite a few other people "implementing" things that i certainly didnt even know was a thing!!
You seem to know what has been happening in the Fanatec community and their feeling towards certain actions, i had no idea that such a sentiment was around!
I simply wanted to know if this current pre order was the first round to the public and if the videos i had watch on YT were the only wheels released, i wasn't implying anything other than wondering if this was the hype train and if i was receiving the first round of wheels.
I do not appreciate you telling me that i was insinuating anything bad towards Fanatec and their practices!!! I have had Fanatec products for years and continue to buy their products because they have been fantastic to me, both in terms of quality of the product and their aftermarket service.
It really does seem that maybe you should have a break from the forum for a while or give strangers a little tolerance before jumping in thinking they have bad intentions! We are not all the same you know.
Oxymoron - noun
Replying to a post from someone you are ignoring. 🤣
Or simply remove the Oxy.....😂
Twat (or twit for down under 😉): noun
Used to describe a stupid or obnoxious person. Or both. Take your pick on what describes you better.... 🤡🤡
wow, great conversation to the initial topic, congrats to you and Gary for getting personal with Alex.
Unbelievable, maybe you guys should take a break from the forums.
Gary, while we usually don't agree on most things written here in the forum, the respect to eachother should be kept.
And to me it seems you always need the last word on everything, you keep involving yourself in every topic (don't get me wrong, this is fine) and you get personal yet again.
If you have problems with some people here in the forum, feel free to DM them (me included) to finally solve this.
Sascha - I have as much right to post in these forums as you or anyone else. I'm almost certain I post in fewer and have the last word in even less than you do. So it's a strange point you raise and even stranger that you choose to single me out, not for the first time - you got a problem with me?
The reason I posted in this thread is I thought the OP was being treated unfairly - he had his reasoning questioned by you and Alex simply because he was not as au fait with Fanatec's product release dates as you and others decided he should be - Alex went as far as to claim that he was implying a scam which is clearly nonsense. You asked him to provide evidence to justify asking a question - quite bizarre!
When I see behaviour like that I will call it out. Alex continued to mock the OP - offering to send him flowers etc. But you miss this from your selective quotations, along with Alex retaliating by calling the OP a twat.
You are only seeing one side of the picture here - you selectively quote to confirm that bias.
My post pointing out the absurdness of replying to someone you ignore is humour - there is no insult in that statement - google oxymoron if it went over your head,
BTW - don't even think of DMing me to discuss - I have no interest in discussing this further with you.
You call me an oxymoron explaining what the word is and making fun of my English but you are the one that have a basic problem in reading and understanding.
a) the flowers that I offered was a reply to the ops that he is dealing with kids, thanking him for calling me a kid.
b) The retaliation you say by calling him a twat is because he used your great post above to call me a moron...
So yeah... I guess you are the one having selective quotations and lack of basic understanding. Not me or Shascha
And by the way.... The OP after getting his answer regarding the pre-order date he continued with another question which between the lines was like throwing shit on fanatec. After he cleared it out and got his answers you stepped in like the knight in the shinny armor and started your personal attacks like you usually do when you disagree on something.... So again... If you have an issue with someone keep it to yourself if this someone's post is not addressed to you.
How's that ignoring working for you? 🤣
It would be going going well if you stop mentioning me on your posts. 😉
with another question which between the lines was like throwing shit on fanatec
Can i get a pair of these glasses you use that reads between the lines something that isn't in the slightest implied? I got defensive straight away after it was insinuated that i was putting crap on Fanatec through my simple and innocent questions.
I feel i was justified and still do in getting defensive when it was clear that you and your mate where accusing me of something.
I think you should re-read my first 2 posts and when you do read them remove all that hostility you have built up from what seems the bitter discussions you engage in here on a daily basis. You should be able to see that i had no malice or ill conceptions, but rather just curious as to what i was buying ;)
I think this thread should be closed now, i got my answer i was after and also found a community that seems destined to eat itself. Go through and see just how often i visit here and how much i have invested into posting here!! Very little and after this it will be even less!
I think Fanatec should get some mods here to remove the hostile people, because new comers to Fanatec may get the same hostile reception i received. Sim racing can have a great community but there seems to be a few that just want to cause drama even when there is nothing to be dramatic about.
Stephen I think you missed a few posts and kept only 1 line. I said it was like and when you cleared it I replied you
“The way it was written though was implying something different though. 😉
Now that you cleared the air and got info that already 3 batches have been sold out I think it answers any assumptions that maybe there. “
Then again you asked me from where it is coming through and again I replied you....
At the end, you preffered to get it personal after your new friend and grammar nazi started making fun of an autocorrection changing a word.
So again I am telling you like in the post after you cleared your intention and question....
“Peace out and I hope you enjoy soonest possible your new wheel.”
Actually mate @Sascha Kaymer asked where it is coming!! Not me.
You need to re read this whole thread and start over....but then again dont because i cant be bothered with this community any longer.
I will continue to deal directly with Fanatec for any further questions, this place is just to bitter.
