WOW, my #181 came on the 7th, and #182 arrived yesterday on 19th. And my #182 included the stickers & Megadrive booklet as well, so no issues outside of super quick shipping(which isn't really a problem). LOL

It took about 3 weeks for 181 so I was shocked when 182 arrived so early.I also subscribe to XBox mag and about a week and a half ago they sent me an email saying that the August issue had shipped so I figured I’d get that one way before my retro gamer and that still hasn’t arrived.

Shall I be worried that I still haven't received#181? Are there anyone else overseas still waiting?

#182 jumped me from the depths of my mailbox on Friday. For once I got to see that the Norwegian re-mailer is named OrangePost.

#182 arrived in New Zealand today, last few months the delivery has been as good as it was under Imagine, its so much more enjoyable without the stress of worrying whether its coming or not!

I've not seen #182 in Finland yet so I guess we're back in the normal long delivery time.

I sense a major disturbance in the force, as issue #182 dropped in my mailbox today - which is almost too good to believe, as that's close to the time it took back in the golden Imagine days. Hopefully that positive trend keeps going... next up: will I receive the first issue of my new subscription (as for some unfathomable reason I received a new subscriber number and everthing instead of an extension when I renewed recently).

So for issues released in 2018 so far, this is how long it took to reach Germany from the UK on sale date:

#177 - 33 days
#178 - 21 days
#179 - 30 days
#180 - 34 days
#181 - 23 days
#182 - 16 days

I got mine yesterday, so now it's two in a row with an acceptable delivery time. I sure hope this continues, and of course hope that our feedback has been crucial in solving this issue.

And my newsagent got its copies on Thursday. Pretty ok frontpage, but this time the sub one had some real thought put into it.

Issue 182 arrived today 12/7, Brisbane Australia. Delivery times for this one and last one were much better, hope they keep it up.

182 arrived yesterday to India. Very glad that it did since I never received 181 and was a bit afraid that this one will be lost on the way as well!
Already contacted Subscriptions for 181 replacement to be sent. RG team is really doing everything they can to battle this mailing problems!

And as an oddity: EDGE #321 arrived today, seemingly direct from Praha. So Future seems to have more than one standard...

It's 18.07.2018 and I still dont have my RG #182. It's fu% ridiculous ! ( shipment to Poland ) Every time situation is the same. 4-5 weeks of delay and nobody cares about it ! You can send e-mails and have simple respond form some BOTs where answer is always the same "We are sorry blah blah blah". Every fu%& time it's repeating !!! MyFavouriteMagazines are totalyy idiots, they dont do anything about this sick situation. So many peoples have the same problem and what ? NOTHING ! So my subscription is going to end after vacation and i will no renew it. I will just pick up PDF version from pirated websites and NOW i will not care. They will not have my money. End of transmition !
