Looking like NORDE and UK put together won't even pull off 50 kits - sad sight to see, yet somehow there's always a riot when international support isn't offered. Maybe one day.

it doesn’t matter, there’s no MOQ; all kits are being made regardless of quantity! So people can safely order the NORDE and UK kits if they want.

I'm aware and good on Mito for making the kits here have no MOQ, that's besides the point I was making however - other drops that do have MOQ struggle just the same and people always find a way to complain about lack of support for their language but the numbers never happen. It'd be nice if international kit orders made up for more than like 1.5% of total ones for once, is all.

We decided to offer only the Pulse one because demand was theoretically going to be larger, but to be honest I like the Rush scheme better and in retrospect should have had offered that one instead. Numbers would be about the same I guess, Euro always a letdown.

Norde + UK is currently at 44, so combined they just might meet 50 before the drop closes. But just barely. I see your point.

I really don't get what you mean.
Are you referring to the ISO Enter keycaps? If yes, I think you are offering one Rush and one Solace now in Norde & UK. Or do you mean using the Rush 1337 colors for ISO Enter? If yes, that would be the only Rush 1337 Enter keycap offered... Or if you are talking about the Alphas (not the ISO Enter), I think Black was the best choice by far based on the order numbers.
Obviously I am missing something...

I believe if Massdrop had a presence in Europe the interest would be MUCH higher for these kits. I cannot imagine paying as much as they do for customs & shipping & other fees on top of what US members are paying.

I’m sorry for not being clearer. My point is that I’d prefer to see purple Euro keycaps with cyan legends instead of black ones like we have. In other words, offering the Euro kits on Rush scheme!

Ah, I get it now, thanks. The Black Alphas are currently at 716, and the Rush Alphas are not even half that at 296. So my guess is with Rush alphas the Euro kits would be even less popular.

Im one of those that have the nordic caps in my shopping list, Mito thanks for offering us the option and hopefully you can do the same in the future :) I do prefer the black on them tbh.

I hear that. Would have jumped on this set if the Norde was offered in rush aswell.
