    well even if it does come, i hope it's something good, not some crazy challenge like this time. I personally love the phone and hope to get it soon, but i would also like to win the invite in a better way.

    OK, with that Q3, no guarantees, no idea announcement my hope is pretty close to dying.

    Perhaps is coming, but perhaps it isn't... With OnePlus you never know

    My order's still processing, but apparently it'll ship today or tomorrow. I'm in the UK.

    Just BS, even if they give some invites will anyone actually receive their phones in the NEAR future? My guess is NO.

    Heck its not like they've said this before and the storm has turned out to be drizzle at best. Yet here we all still are... (Till July 1st for me anyway...) Thats when the said invites would be easy to come by... Balls in their court...

    Amazing strategy? I am sure disappointing loyal customers while looking for new ones is not an awesome strategy at all...
    This invite system is dumb. It could be awesome if OPO could provide enough phones for all customers. For now I just see a plan to attract as much attention as possible but not to fulfill existing customers' needs.

    Couple questions:
    1. How much phones did OP send? 500? Less?
    2. How much potential customers do they have? 90k? More?
    3. How long these p. customers can wait? week, two or until announcement of better phone?

    Someday people will understand that this phone is not worth waiting... And at the end of this "awesomeness" there will be no customers and tons of outdated phones..

    ...And... Yep - this is awesome strategy :p

    Probably another highly creative spam-your-friend contest with 100 winners out of 90000 members. Yeah, storm, why not

    I think the storm already started. There are over a 500 video's now, but still you can make one and you can still participate in 'The OnePlus Race! - Day 5' unlike previous versions of the oneplus race which closed in a few hours. Maybe everyone who makes a video gets an invite.

    1. The storm is coming
    2. There are plenty of things happening on & after the 20th of June!

    Keeping this two in mind i think it would be the announcement of the 500 winner's plus the winners of earlier contests get their 3 invites to share. Get ready for the storm.

    I have no doubt that a "storm of invites" will arrive in June. What I question is if it will be anywhere near as big as they have implied.

    That would be a drop in the bucket. Better be more than that.

    Once all the winners for that 5 days contest are announced, those 500 lucky members gonna send out friend invites. Now that's the storm they are talking about?
