It would be round 3 at this point. Check out Zeal's group buy!

I'm new to this group buy/Massdrop experience, what does Round 3 mean? Does that mean the August ship date is a different round?

It means that there have been two rounds before you, if you'd buy one now :) they sell in rounds, so they're not always available. I'm actually practicing on mine now. It's just in, i think i ordered it at around feb 20th, very much worth the wait.

Ok, thanks for the clarification. So if I understand correctly, this buy page is active for ALL group buys for both past and present, whether v.1, v.2, etc. The organizers/sellers just update the page with the new buy order and refresh the pertaining info? I did in fact place my order today with the Zealios switch option. I'm anxious to get it already! If it gets pushed further from August I might die in anticipation! :D

yes, that is correct! It surprised me too but now I appreciate it. It's nice to check back once in a while just to see how it's going and all those excited people . And a support ticket. What config where you interested in? What's your current setup?

My current work setup is a rubber dome Lenovo SK-8825. I use AutoCAD for work, so my thought is to create a layer of macros (if possible) of my most used commands. I have a cheap 10-key I will use along side this board too. At home, I recently purchased a MechanicalKeyboards.com MK Disco with KBT Brown switches, which replaced my Microsoft Sidewinder X4. I like it so far, but admittedly it's taking some getting used to. I think the heavier actuation force of the Zealios will feel better - the browns are a little light for me. I have a Cherry switch tester, and the clears feel pretty solid. I read somewhere the Zealios are near the clear's force rating, so that's how I'm basing my judgement.
Forgive me in advance - still new! As far as config, QWERTY? Is that what you mean with config? I'm open to try the other formats too.

You don't have to apologize for my incoherent sentences! It's that I'm more concentrated on finding the right letters first, haha. But you've answered my question perfectly. I was interested in how other people decide to buy something like this.
Your order was exactly like mine, I had browns in my Ducky(not a rubber one haha) before this but it felt a little bit to light too. So my decision was either clears or purple Zaelios. In the end I ordered the purple ones but I somehow received clears :( But they feel muuuuuch better!
