Yeah there was a lot of bad feeling in the forum when the xim3 launched.
I luckily got in on the 1st batch having just joined, and remember keeping my head down when all the vitriol was flying around from a few long time members.

Be nice if they could come up with a way that forum members could preorder and maybe pay upfront in advance ... I know that I would readily pay in advance.

We'd really like do this but have yet been able to come up with a method where it doesn't turn into a free-for-all unfortunately since people share links intended to be private.

OBsIV, I work in e-commerce. You should be able to accomplish this with “customer groups”. Looks like you use 3dcart (shift4shop) on your store. Here’s their article on setting up customer groups (in this case, folks who did and folks who did not purchase XIM Apex) so only the one group can see the Purchase button during the exclusive pre-order period: https://www.shift4shop.com/lp/features/3dcarts-customer-groups-feature/

Of course account sharing could still happen but that could be mitigated by restricting purchases to 1 per account during the preorder period.
Really liking this idea.

It's a cool idea but wouldn't this exclude those who bought XIM products via other means (distributors and so on)?

Nice solution but this will lock out anyone who purchased a XIM from an official partner store or from Amazon.
There will surely be plenty of complaints, no? :/

Wow, I didn't even know our cart had the ability to do this. It can barely do Waiting Lists well (let alone most other things) so I wouldn't have expected it to be able to do something like this. Thanks for the tip!

Oh please don't do it. I bought my products on Amazon (I think so, it's been a while).
I can't wait to buy a XIM Nexus Controller, cause that's all I ever wanted a gamepad to be.

We definitely understand many people buy their XIMs through distributors. We won't penalize them. My reply about grouping above was more about being surprised our shopping cart provider is able to provide a feature like this considering they aren't that great of a service.

Sorry if this has been answers, but is the controller USB-C?

Later in the article I linked above, they talk about ways to let people opt into a Customer Group.  You could set up that option for people where they enter their Apex serial number and it's then compared to a list of valid serials.  They would then be added to the "purchased XIM Apex" Customer group.  Feel free to PM me if you decide to go this route and have any questions. 

Tbh, I'm just worried about bots ruining the launch.  I STILL haven't been able to buy an RTX 3070 for a fair price after a year of trying and I've seen even small launches for niche items like Artisan keycaps ruined all year.  The bot guys are absolutely ruthless now.  They scrape google trends and use their bot armies to buy up trending new products without even knowing what they are. Like I said, I work in e-commerce and it's the hottest topic in our industry. Big, old-fashioned companies still aren't willing to pay for the software to properly implement mitigation measures but smaller nimble companies are doing great work on this front.

Super excited to purchase one!

 Seems like stick drift won’t be a big issue though my main concern is the left thumb stick “click” for running and maybe the front buttons/sticking. Every controller I’ve had including Nav will result in the left thumb click dying. 

Will it be easy to replace the left thumb stick component?

Can you use the Nexus in tandem with another usb or Bluetooth device?
Example
My current Apex setup is mouse, nav, and old foot stinky board. Since the Nav runs wireless it allows another device to be used.  Essentially mapped the board for run and reloads or R&R as I like to call it. (https://c1.neweggimages.com/ProductImage/26-880-001-02.jpg)

One thing we suggested during testing is auto-sprint based on pegged stick position, so the LS / L3 click isn’t required for Sprint. This is a common quality of life mod in Titan scripts and will extend the life of the LS button.

I’m not sure when OBsIV is looking at it, but I believe it’s on the to do list to at least test the functionality.

I've been on the fence about that one (auto-sprint) due to the concern about it engaging when you don't want it to (such as when you are confronting an enemy).

HIP only, or when L2 &/or R2 are inactive could solve that.
