I pinged them 3 times... They finally responded that they didn't get my picture (despite me having a response to that message) and asked me to resend. I suggest contacting them. I have 4 other open tickets that they haven't responded to, so I suspect they started ignoring some of the squeaky wheels.

I was out of town until today and did not get my drop box or the message that I could get a partial refund until too late. I know the post said I had to do this before May 31 but is there a way that I could still turn in my option. Any help would be great. I love Massdrop and have done buisness with y'all quite a few times.

Shipping things to Hawaii is usually fine. I can usually get things inside of a week, sometimes even next day if I pay for it. There's a UPS shipping facility here on Oahu, there's absolutely no reason it should have been turned over to USPS, and parcel post of all things. All this wait to get a package I'm going to immediately shipped back as soon as I get it and as soon as massdrop gives me the refund information.

Having finally received mine I wanted to share. 8 packs (4 SOI and 4 BFZ), dice bag, dice, and a DEX box. Pulls aside, technically this would be considered value for the $50 and the mystery was kind of fun. As much as I like opening packs, it'd honestly be happier getting a few random packs and say a shop playmat in place of the extra packs. All in all, I've had worse mystery boxes and I do feel Massdrop handled people's issue with this very well. Assuming Deriums did do these it's very commendable that they filled all of these, so they deserve a great thanks.

The thing that offends me most is that the response to my requesting a refund was "We won't tell you how to get it until you send us a photo to prove you haven't opened anything." They clearly stated not to request it if you had opened product. They then insult me by making me take a picture? I had already resealed the box... This is beyond frustrating. Since there is nothing to prevent me from opening stuff now that I've sent the picture I wonder if they will send me the name of the carrier and refuse to send the shipping label until I send a picture of my printer to prove I can print it and another picture of the contents to show I haven't opened anything since that ridiculous request they made.

What about those of us who have yet to receive the box? I'd Like to be able to make an informed decision, see how I feel about the actual contents before choosing an option. I realize it's essentially moot since everyone received the same box, but I still haven't even gotten mine.

Happy to be able to go on patronizing massdrop, and very glad for this solution as I am at least convinced that Massdrop could have just said 'tough luck' and been fine in a month or two.

I want to voice my thoughts on this because I've participated in numerous drops (45+) over the years.... WHAT THE HELL??? This was absolutely disgusting. Using full MSRP on the cards (COME ON MASSDROP NO ONE HERE IS PAYING MSRP FOR LOOSE PACKS) I'm calculating this to be AT BEST a 10% discount. When I account for what I can get loose packs for down the street, I paid more for the same items and waited longer (and got the worst colors!).
Then, instead of sending an email to those that participated in this, we have to search for your half-reared attempt to remedy this? I thought you were better than that. Please, send me a box to shove these wonderful items in, so I can send it back.
You're covering the return shipping, right? I can't believe I even feel the need to ask that, but here we are.

Looks like about 450/570 participants were emailed, our engineering team is looking into why some people on the list were excluded. Opting out is one reason (clearly not in your case), but there are also some other technical issues that appear to have blocked the email sends. Thanks for bringing this to our attention and we'll sort it out for future communications.

One thing that might make me more trusting- how many commander decks were sent out at the $150 tier? Loose packs? Duel Decks?
I assume none, since I haven't seen any reported. They are clearly in the product pool, so...

If I had just been on the losing end of randomness, this would be palatable... but with no excitement or anticipation... I didn't even get to be excited that I might have won one of the premium boxes...
My choices are return this for a full refund (including shipping?) and I just suffered through a little annoyance with nothing to show for it, keep this that I value at $120 for $127, or keep this $120 in value for $142 and get $10-30 off the second attempt? None of those appeal. Option 1 just leaves me sour on MD (again), option 2 is just a waste of money to me as I can just take option 1 and purchase replacements for $120 (shipped), option 3 leaves me sour for at least a month and if next time is bad then I've thrown good money after bad... even if next time is a good drop that I would have been okay with this time, but I'm on the losing end of randomness I won't be happy... or if the next drop is just advertised as "here is the list of things you will get with color variations" and it is well advertised, I won't want to participate.
What I really want is option 4 which is option 3, but if you choose not to participate in the next drop, you get the other 10% back and lose the future discount. Then I can decide on if the next drop looks like it is going to be better. Now, I will need to take it on faith that you WILL do another drop and WILL do better than you have done on this drop or the big Granite Keycap screw up or... My option 4 gives me an out that leaves hope but doesn't rely on my faith in MDs ability to fix things that they have demonstrated multiple times that they are not good at.

I received the standard $150 box everyone else got. I'm glad for the refund. The only rub is that the ancillary items like sleeves and boxes were the cheapest items and were fulfilled with literally the cheapest product. I could see improvement with quality control and shipping management. The time to wait for drop participation added to procurement fulfillment is long. The obvious dissatisfaction of the status quo is understandable to a point considering that some could have purchased and supported locally and would have gotten quality. I understand randomization, but the reporting of what was sent is a far cry from what was advertised as a possibility.
I would like to try and support massdrop again in another "grab bag"; but will the be some sort of change or QA on the fulfillment side?

Right? Both Massdrop and Derium's can't hide behind all of this msrp rhetoric. It's very clear that everything in the $150 box could be purchased for the same amount or LESS (I'm able to do it in a local store and save 6% off of the purchase price. That's after sales tax mind you) than what we paid. Defeats the model for the entire site. We were taken advantage of. There's no other way around that.

I agree with him completely. Deriums Charges under 100 for the Oath box (which is not even the cheapest you can get if for wholesale) and the rest of the crap is like lets give it a gross over charge and say 30 bucks of value (like 10 wholesale) I would not have minded the cheap crap if the value of the booster made up for it. I understand that the vendor was most likely the one who misunderstood or purposefully misrepresented. Either way i for one am at least passionate that the future of this drop needs to be way more hands on less all on a 3rd party who can give you guys a black eye and have you be the last to know. I for one would not mind a huge wait time ( as long as it is stated in the drop before the purchase that it will be like 30 days out) so that some simple voting form to be filled out by the drop participants. Also i think the stretch goals should have basic prizes for all participants and a high value booster for one lucky person at the highest goal. A simple webpage form could be emailed to each participant after the drop closes and i bet in under a week you will have it filled out. Lets say every one votes for a play mat over card sleeves then the percentage chance of getting a play matt maxes out at like 60% of boxes. I hope you see where im going with this.
TLDR: This drop in particular needs an active curator and MassDrop representative. Future drops need to have more participant involvement The Dollars have to add up even if you dont state MSRP the internet is a thing I think people would be willing to trade wait Time for a small Vote of customization I think Stretch goals should reward everyone and at the highest goal then raffle a booster all raffle winners should be announced at drop close Seriously guys Transparency Ban Deriums from being in the vendor pool Keep a closer eye on the supply chain (Bird Dog those Guys) so MassDrop doesn't get a black eye Remember MTG Peeps are Astute and Picky. Fix this in the future like actually maximum effort the shit out of the fix (Mabey look on the internet for similar things) Also No Freaking Cardboard Crack gha that is just not something i ever want to sit down and page through.

Lot's of good points in here. Not trying to beat a dead horse and look like I'm foaming at the mouth mad but man...I'd love to get involved in future drops if I felt like my money was going towards my hobby and not towards emptying old stock. I realize this is new for MD but I feel like if they could figure out a good formula then they could knock this out of the park! For as close as the magic community it...this would also be a good way for others to introduce MD to their friends. I come from a mostly working-class town but I know that I could get folks in my local store VERY interested in giving this a go if they feel like their money is working for them and not for the vendor. Freddyeddy said it very well with, "remember MTG Peeps are Astute and Picky." That being said...I can guarantee you that if the magic community feels like they are not only being taken care of but that they are involved in the process that the future of this drop (perhaps even the all the drops related to magic) will be a huge hit.
Be Transparent about what's offered and/or how they are picked
Make the dollar go further - whether this is value for what's offered, ACTUAL usable accessories, or a combination of both
Let the folks that participate in the drop feel a bit involved

Greatly appreciate the fact that this issue was addressed in a good time frame.
I have stated that I was disappointed with my contents, and I am sure many others are. However, I will not be joining those who opt for the "not doing this again/quit Massdrop/etc." option, as I'm well aware of the circumstances that plagued this particular drop. I will not pin the blame specifically to one particular side.
Considering the three options given by Henry L, my choice would be option 1. I'm always in for giving things a chance. One single time is not going to ruin something for me.
I do hope that future Monthly Magic Blue Boxes would be improved, given this fiasco.

Hello Massdrop, Firstly this is the first drop i entered in and... I'm kind of disappointed. I know I'm not alone, but let me explain why. Because I know your trying to make things right, still I can't help but feel a little unfulfilled. and I'm the kind of idiot who buys the magic grab bags from my LGS. And it was for exactly the same reason I bought this, not quite knowing that you are getting into.
I received 80 purple KMC sleeves (I'm fine with this .I use KMC's all the time.) 1 Dex protect box: green (meh) 1 Box Chessex poly dice set (why not d6?) 1 black and gold dice bag 4 Packs of Battle for Zendikar. 4 packs of Shadows over Innistrad.

First, Two more packs would have way more useful. it would allow two players to each build a sealed deck.
Second, a lot of us use Mass Drop... as advertised "... more participants means a lower price."
[ https://helpdesk.massdrop.com/hc/en-us/articles/216539348-How-does-Massdrop-work- ] Many of us are sour because well....
search

...and yeah, that deck box is nicer. than the one i received. Waiting a solid month to save basically a buck doesn't feel special, especially if everyone got BASICALLY the same thing.
NOW if i had four friends enter the drop and their drops where more like this:

I think this is what we were expecting. A grab bag, not a curated purchase. I think the item description needed to be more explicit. and the photos were SUPPER misleading. I'm not going to say "I"M NEVER COMING BACK!" or "[expletive] WORTHLESS!" i feel more "That was disappointing." I'm in a couple other drops, ans hope that I feel a bit brighter. Right now I'm not sure if i'm going to send it back.

The point of this ENTIRE SITE was to receive a savings because of the purchase...am I right? How does solving that issue after the fact save face? Are the future boxes going to have more content so we feel we received fair value or are the grab boxes going to be cheaper? We're mad because we didn't save any money. Why aren't you guys getting this? Yeah...you're kind of fixing it now, but no one has addressed whether that is going to be solved in future drops. That's why we're all so facetious about it. (Not to mention be reading your reaction posts on this and every other drop it's clear you don't care about how choose to convey a message. Kind of like poor bed-side manner...except for customer service)

More of us were mad by not only the lack of randomness (since this was described as a grab bag) in all of the different boxes. The way it was advertised was very misleading. (Looking like the fault on that was equally Massdrop and the vendor) Also, if you take a look at what people received for each tier of purchase those that spent LESS got more real value for their money. That's kind of the opposite of what the model is supposed to be. If I would have purchased the $50 or $100 box I would have been a lot happier with what I received compared to spending $150 and getting grab. (At least the dice received in the lower tiered boxes are dice that MTG players use. The dice set put in the $150 or more geared towards DnD.)
Personally, if this is the way the boxes are going to work in the future I will not participate. The entire point of Massdrop was defeated in the purchase of this drop, I could've spent 6% less than the purchase cost of the box at my local store...not ebay or amazon...and received the same stuff AND saved money. I think THAT is the reason there is so much anger here.
For those of us that bought the $150 box it's very clear who received all of the value. Massdrop tapped my mana and Derium's made it so it wouldn't untap during my next untap step.

I haven't bothered to open my $150 box. Apparently the only mystery would be to see what color dice bag I received. I along with the rest of the community agree that this was a poorly executed drop, but it was after all a mystery box. We as the consumer knew that there was going to be some disappointment, but figured it would be minimal. Many of us have a similar subscription service, from Loot Crate to Dollar Shave Club. If you haven’t figured it out yet, we like the anticipation of getting something of a mystery for our money. You throw in the randomness of an unopened booster pack and now you’re talking our language. While many other posters are voicing their concern, some nicely, others not so nicely, I thought I’d break it down in a clear and concise manner for everyone.
The item’s description as well as the photo depictions of what was to be included in the box were overly misleading. I can’t vouch for the $50 and $100 tiers, but as for the $150 tier, we should have expected any of the following items: Duel Decks, Commander Decks, SOI Booster Box, Playmat, Dragon Shields Sleeves, etc.. To my knowledge, not one of the $150 tier individuals got any of the items I listed. The items that were sent out were of negligible value and interest. OGW was a poor choice of booster box considering SOI was just released and featured in the promo shots. The POP figure is practically worthless to the core MTG player and collector. I’m a huge fan of the KMC Hyper Mat sleeves, but advertising Dragon Shields is a classic bait and switch. The dice are marginally interesting, but once again, we all have amassed huge collections of dice and the included dice are geared towards the D&D crowd. The Ultra Pro binder is has limited usefulness until it falls apart in a couple of months. The deck box is adequate assuming you received a color you like, otherwise it’s going to end up in landfill. The Cardboard Crack elicits a solid, “Meh.”
Considering this was Massdrop’s first foray into the monthly subscription box, an opportunity was missed and may not be easily recoverable. This was Massdrop’s opportunity to entice a group of people that have a considerable amount of expendable income. I’m sure you have individuals here that have been scared off from ordering the next iteration of this drop. As I have stated above, I’ve yet to open my box and sort through the disappointment it contains. I may just sit on this until the next time Massdrop offers this and be reminded of how foolish I and hundreds of others were to have taken a leap of faith and again be underwhelmed by this poorly conceived drop.
To the people that have opened this, what is your opinion as to the disposition of my box? Should I choose options 1, 2 or 3?

According to your tracking, UPS weighed your box in at 6 pounds, so I'm not sure how there wasn't a booster box in there. In any event, contact Support and they can look into the issue further.
