AsheAsheflg2010stock alerts??? LOL... I have been trying that for a month.. have yet to be able to get to the site before bots or people quicker then me. What EVGA is doing is the only way to get the card you want without paying 2, 3 or more times the list price. Not being funny but you can’t have been trying very hard, I’ve got my 8th 3080 coming Friday as been sourcing them for my mates. There are numerous discord’s & telegram groups with bots that scan amazon and post notifications when stock lands within seconds so just a case of hitting add to basket. It was only because I specifically want the ftw3 ultra that I held o it so long but I got one of those on amazon too eventually. Have an xc3 coming Friday and a FE tomorrow, both orders today alone. Really isn’t that hard to get a 3080 if you know where to look

awes0mmeHonestly guys - think its time we reach out to Gamers Nexus about all this.So out of interest ive kept an eye on EVGA stock coming into EU with a bot (with no intention on buying)Over the last week, Amazon alone has had 20 stock deliveries to Amazon.de.Stock is now coming through. Why are EU orders not being fulfilled in step up whilst American orders are? Honestly its at the point now where we as a collective should be reaching out to the likes or Gamers Nexus who call out this sort of behaviour. EVGA Jacob has at best, screwed up with his information and at worst, deceived. We are not the lower class consumer. We all paid the same if not more and its now at the point where the silence is simply unacceptable.I propose if we do not have an answer from an EVGA rep in 2-3 days of this post, that we all email Gamers Nexus. If enough of us do it, they will pick up on it and at the very least get us some straight answers.
jess.scanlan86How is my thought process flawed? You are this <.> big to EVGA. Amazon are this <..............................................................> big to EVGA. Does that fit your thought process?
MattyKHZPerhaps if you are not in the EU and not affected by this, a comment is not that useful. If 90% of cards made were the FTW3 Ultra, that does not help when that is the card that the Step Up provides. If that is the greatest produced card, that should surely be the greatest allocated, including step up. These never ending circles of not blaming EVG, blame an India etc are now just boring. Likewise I am sure all those not affected by this situation are bored about hearing of it. I have posted a separate post elsewhere that I am sure people can comment on. As stated I will not be posting any more as there seems little point. Those affected have had their say and there has been zero response or resolution. Those not affected seem to like posting Which does not address the problem At hand. it’s only a graphics card, we may get one when no one in the US wants one any more or the 4080 is released, which ever comes sooner. wish I had gone AMD or any other manufacturer than EVGA from this experience hence no longer caring about when my personal Step Up comes to fruition.
Doumi111As I said I am affected and concerned by EU step up, I am in queue, but I registered late, on end of September, so I really do not expect any update on my step up process for some months.I am not saying I am happy seeing no progress at all on EU step up, I really would like to get the 3080 as fast as possible. But I will tell you as I see it: I did order a 2080 Super just to get in line of step up for a 3080, and this card can make me wait, it is a decent upgrade from my 1080, and I am much more relaxed not tracking availabilities on cards anymore! I was hyped, as a lot of people, by the RTX 3000 series announcement, and I spent quite a few days checking for cards on a considerable amount of websites. I did order one on release day on Amazon, which was a few days later canceled by them.This was too much for me, the scalpers, having to use bots to check availability, prices going up... The step up was, and still is, a relief!What I did consider, though, was that this process was not meant to order a 3080, but to give an opportunity to customers who bought a end-gen product to upgrade it at a reasonable price (ie postage costs). It was still possible for people like me to use it as some kind of a back order solution on a product that is hard to get. And a lot of people did that!If you ask me what I would prefer between my situation is now, be in a queue for a 3080 (and a FTW3 Ultra, which seems to be one of the best card from reviewers) and enjoy gaming last titles with a 2080 Super, or spend hours everyday checking availabilities, considering paying much more than what it should cost on ordering a card there and there, got no time frames on when my order would be fulfilled, if not canceled... Well, I will keep my step up anytime!I will start worrying about the process not being addressed as it should be whenever 3080's flood the market, with stock everywhere. We are still on the point where when a bunch of cards get on sale, anywhere and whatever the price is, it is sold out in less than a minute.But again, all this is just my opinion and no-one has to share it! :)BTW I'm French, my English might be bad, sorry!
awes0mmeYep its beyond a joke now. Honestly, we can all keep moaning about it or we can take email@example.comSubject line: Can you investigate EVGA EU step up?Hi Steve,Can you possibly use you’re contacts in senior management at EVGA to find our why EU customers in the step up programme are effectively being discriminated against compared to their US counter parts.EU is regularly getting stock now from EVGA (as can be proven thanks to bots) yet the EU customers who purchased EVGA cards due to the step-up programme continue to get no answers or updates whilst the US queue is moving.Its verging on mis-selling and misleading at this point. EVGA jacob did tell us that stock was coming “next week” nearly 3 weeks ago.Since then its radio silence. On behalf of all EU customers I hope you can get some answers for us.————————Everyone send the above to the email address. I am sure we will very quickly get some answers if Steve picks it up!
KeyofdestinyIn the image i posted (you should be able to see it?). anyway its a tweet of me asking jacob on twitter asking about eu 3080 step up and he replied: "Yes some have been released and some more this week."
