You don't have the case price in your original post so I just want to make sure the slot pricing you have listed is correct because based on the current BO price, it looks incorrect...

$3,899.95 / 540 = 7.22 per slot (you are quoting 6.75 for additional slots)

That doesn't account for shipping the case to you, shipping the cards to the participants nor supplies.

Whatever it winds up being, I'd suggest taking payments for shipping after the break as I'd assume most people won't want the random card. In that case, it seems the fair slot price would be 7.50 with no discount for additional slots and without shipping to participants.

Since I would like to better allocate my funds swerve, could I drop one of my slots in box 1, leaving me with just one slot? Sorry about this, still excited for the break though!

We have a lower price locked in. Since it looks like we will only be able to fill 9 boxes at best I do need to check and see if they can keep the price in line.

Well we lost a participant that had 18 slots so we are now about 60 away from filling just a 9 box case. I will see what happens over the next few days but looks like we may just have to scratch this break.

Hate to lose the price you have locked in. If you can verify that you can still get that price at a 9-box break, then I will add another slot per 1-9 boxes to get this rolling again. Probably should just go ahead and take it down to 9 boxes. I don't think we can fill a 18-boxer, plus you are about to have some competition to fill this thing.

What's the word on going to 9 boxes? There is now another very similar break posted for this same product, which I think will make it very difficult to fill 18 in this break. If we can go to 9 boxes and keep the slot price close to what it is now, I will add a spot in each box that I don't already have one.

I think we should go for a 9 boxer team break spread throughout all of the boxes, personally, rather than picking a box for a lower price. Thoughts?

I think we are too close to filling the 9-boxer to switch the format of the break. It would be a step back to getting this filled as we would surely have some people back out. Just my opinion.

I agree. Don't change the format.

If we go with the 9 box, you can add my name for random in any box I am not already in, so I'd have 9 total spots- One in each. Thanks

It looks like this is not going to happen as two 18 slot holders have dropped out. It is a shame to since the slot price is cheaper than the other break posted.

It's also of a different year's product too though, so it's not the same break and thus wouldn't influence me, personally, one way or the other.

Well, I think if you update the OP, you might be closer than you think.

Just between these 3 posts, we add about 2 spots per box. But it is your break. If you are ready to kill it, it is up to you. Don't we still have some time before this even releases?

You might want to take a look at that again. They're both 2012.
