Yeah wish the sample models could be delivered to mouse reviewers at least so that we could get the videos up while waiting for it to be finished. Bought myself an FK2 since the waiting time was too long, decent shape and further strengthens my love for bumps in the middle but I need that WMO shape in Astrum

i understand making something is a tricky process. but every time there is a semi-emo story followed by it is nearly finished just last touches, will be with reviewers in 2 weeks. and then dead silence for months. and then he comes up with a sob story about how this happened and that happened and this needs to be changed blah blah. i mean if its a one off sure, stuff happens but if u keep doing the same thing again and again, you are jeopardising your credibility. pro tip: never promise something unless you are 500 percent sure u can deliver.

This is perhaps the nicest looking IO replication yet made.

PLEASE pursue this shape and supply it to MAX Gaming as soon as possible for sale.

Really proud how you have listened and of course presented a very nice shape for those that still remember the famous Microsoft version from all those years ago. Most here on OCN weren't even born during that time period.

Also PLEASE no poking silly holes in your design listening to ignorant fools about making it lighter, time for those with limp wrists to work out and put some muscle on themselves, if they want to seriously Game and use this mouse. Making something so light that it eventually floats in mid air becomes ludicrous and silly, without any merit whatsoever.

If you want it to become Lighter in any way try making the shell out of Carbon Fiber, which in itself would make it the most unique design in the World today (without needing any stupid holes in the shell). I would buy it regardless of the costs involved.

FFS, man. It’s ok to dislike holes in mice and think that lightweight mice are a superior experience at the same time. Aside from a user with Parkinson’s, I’ve honestly not heard of one legitimate and/or logical argument which gives a single advantage to heavier mice. Personal preference is by definition, purely subjective. I don’t like holes either, but I’m sure as **** glad lightweight mice are a thing. I can’t wait for the XM1 to be available.

His last post on this very forum was 20 days ago. That's not exactly "silence for months". Sure, an update would be appreciated.

Astrum timeline expected tools and testing to be done by end of Jan 2019, with an update on 12/06/2018 stating 70% complete. Eight months and counting to complete last 30%? Did he scrap the initial design and come up with something completely new? I suggest hiring a qualified project manager in future endeavors.
