I just found this notice on the USPS web site. It looks like shipping to Australia is disrupted. I am not sure if our package got out ahead of it or not. Supposedly the USPS will return it to me if it can't be shipped. I apologize to our international customers. We will just have to see what happens.
From the USPS web site:

HI everyone, sorry for the long delays on the International orders. I'm glad I didn't open pre-orders! I've never had an import struggle this much to get into Australia. It seems that the issues outbound from Chicago were significant, but now in the last few weeks Australia's postal system has gotten overwhelmed too. I do believe the package did make the cutoff to leave USA, at very least it did in their system, as the tracking is live on Australia's system, simply stating:
It's on its way Most recent update Cleared and awaiting international departure
CHICAGO (US), UNITED STATES
Date & timeSun 12 Sep, 9.10pm
So its been 3 weeks since that update, but, its hard to know further than that. I'm watching the tracking closely and will update if I see any progress. Cheers all Evan - Rival Sky Games
