Introducing Glorious Forge

Glorious HQ

April 27, 2022

The flames of the Glorious Forge™ have officially been lit!

Glorious was born out of the enthusiast spaces of the internet, and built to serve enthusiasts - no matter how much we grow, we remain dedicated to that vision. Nearly every day we receive requests for unique peripheral concepts from the most passionate members of our community.

While we want to serve our entire community, many of those product ideas are too niche or narrow to ever fit into our main product lineup. At the core of Glorious’ ethos is keeping our product line relatively simple, each item perfected to meet the needs of many. The enthusiasts have needs beyond what we currently offer.

We’ve come up with an answer - Glorious Forge™

Through this new sub-brand, we will release new, unique, and experimental products requested by our community via small-batch Group Buys. Glorious Forge Projects will span our entire product ecosystem - serving all categories from keyboards to mice to mousepads (and beyond!).

Our production capabilities and distribution network have grown to the point where we can roll out multiple projects simultaneously, quickly, and efficiently. Think of new colorways, new materials, new sizes, layouts, shapes, components, and more - the possibilities are near endless!

Glorious Forge will enable us to innovate and collaborate with the entire community. It will give fans and creators opportunities to work together with us to bring fresh ideas - incorporating art, lifestyle, cutting edge tech, and much more!

Through our manufacturing connections, product development experience, and top-tier quality assurance standards, we ensure that all Glorious Forge products are held to the same rigorous standards as our mainline products.


How it works

Glorious Forge projects will be released “Group Buy” style, meaning you will need to pre-order the products you’re interested in. Once they’ve reached the minimum pre-order quantity, we will officially put them into production. This system helps make limited-quantity runs of exciting products possible.

The progress bar below is located on every Group Buy product page. We will update it to reflect where the product is in the process so you can stay up to date!


Stage 1: Interest Check

Interest Checks (ICs) are exactly what they sound like – a way to gauge interest for a product that we are looking to move into the Group Buy stage.

· ICs will be posted on the Glorious Forge™ hub page with a clear label distinguishing them from live Group Buys.

· No money is exchanged at this stage. ICs are merely a showing of interest, not a promise to buy.

· To express your interest in a product idea, you will submit your email address via a form.

· Once enough people have shown interest, it will move into the Group Buy stage.

Stage 2: Group Buy OPEN

Products that the community shows significant interest in move into the Group Buy (GB) phase. Check out active GBs by visiting the Glorious Forge hub page!

· Similar to traditional pre-orders, Glorious Forge products have a dedicated page on our website. There, you can check out a detailed breakdown of the product, including its price and estimated shipping date.

· Group Buys are typically live for 2 weeks but the duration may vary.

· You will be charged the full amount when you pre-order a Glorious Forge product - standard shipping rates apply.

· Once the product’s minimum order quantity (MOQ) has been reached, and the GB has ended, it will quickly move into the production phase.

Stage 3: IN Production

Glorious Forge products go into production only after its Group Buy has concluded.

· You can no longer cancel your Group Buy order once the product enters this phase.

· Production takes an estimated 30-45 days, but this could vary significantly by project.

· During this phase, we ensure all Glorious Forge products match the same level of quality and consistency as our mass-produced, mainline products.

Stage 4: IN Fulfillment

Once the products have been manufactured at the factory, they will be shipped.

· Group Buy participants will be notified via email and social posts that their product is ready for shipment.

· Contact our customer support team to update your address if it has changed over the course of the Group Buy process.

· You can not do this once the product is already en route to your address from our warehouse.

Stage 5: COMPLETED

Once a Group Buy is totally fulfilled, it has reached this final phase.


Customer Support & Warranty

Group Buy orders cannot be canceled once the GB period ends and the product has entered production.

Once you've received your Forge product, you have the option to return it within 30 days for a full refund.

Glorious Forge products are fully covered by our Customer Support team.

All electronic Glorious Forge products come with a 2-year warranty and a 1-year warranty for all non-electronic products.


Authorized Retailers & Distributors

Units are only guaranteed through the Glorious webstore. International partners will handle Glorious Forge Group Buys on a product-by-product basis. Reach out to them for more information when you see a new project announced on our website.

How about the model o minus PRO? Don’t leave us out of the picture!

almuatasim owda:

As many others have said this should be a standard production mouse, and more than that – it should have came out months ago :)
I think you guys should change it to an official standard production as one of your top of the line mice with reasonable price. I know that they will sell out fast :)

This should be a production mouse IMO These would sell like hot cakes in the main lineup

MMO Gamer:

Please forge an MMO mouse!!!

AR:

I hope this mouse is the greatest thing I’ve ever used

I would love to see a 95-96% version of the GMMK Pro and some Dye Sub PBT ISO FR Keycaps, french keebs enthusiasts are struggling so much to find decent keycaps that are not crappy ABS ones or GMK Ripoff from Aliexpress.

Joshua A Guerrero:

I would love to see a GMMK PRO 95%

Ben:

Love this idea. I personally would like to see more mice with the buttons up by the side of the right click like the G502 but in a lightweight frame. I tend to use those way more than the side buttons when available.

IamDefiler:

LOVE this idea. Just throwing this out there… Please, PLEASE make your own version of the Logitech G300s. Keep all the buttons as is and add two thumb buttons if you wish but KEEP the left and right flanking buttons, size and shape. I’d pay top dollar for it.

I have recently been in search of a customizable Numpad and although possible, it would be awesome to be able to build a custom Numpad from Glorious.

Peter:

My perfect mouse – “MOBA” mouse in style of Logitech G604. That means 6 side thumb buttons (pretty much just 2 rows of of Model I side buttons). Leave place underneath for thumb to rest (reason why I dislike 12 side buttons). 1 or 2 “sniper” buttons next to left mouse click just like in G604.

Reasons why G604 is failure
- Way too heavy (135g)
- Logitech quality control took a major nosedive
- Scroll wheel is disasterous
- Batteries inside mouse
- Beyond horrible Logitech G Hub software

Wow, so excited… I feel like I’ll be spending a lot of money here, especially if theres a custom model i… I need a reason to replace my d wireless… But I’m only going to get wireless, so I hope the i wl comes out soon!

Justin:

would be excited to see a GMMK pro >70% and maybe a full size board as well
also a glorious game controller would be interesting to see

I think it’s a great idea! I am excited to see different tools to mod mice and different switches for mice specifically. I do spend a lot of time working in a computer and I cannot seem to find a way to mod my mice other than adding rubberized tape or feet which is nice but I would see beneficial to mod the switches as well, for a much lighter feel or as crazy as it may sound being able to install linear switches to ease the pain on my fingers. :D I hope we get the chance to see anything of the sort.

The glorious forge is great idea. Can’t wait to see what your team comes up with! If I can throw my hat in the ring a Zowie S2 clone from you guys would be awesome!

Honestly, I was on the fence rather or not to buy of glorious since I’ve heard some….not so great things before. Considering glorious is still a fairly new company, however, I don’t think any grudges should be held for long. Mistakes happen when you’re newer than other big name brands who’ve been around 20+ years! They’ve shown they care, and this is another example of that

Having said that, this sounds like such a fantastic idea! The number of times I have wished I could have a product just slightly different, or unique in a way, but had no place to get it. This will cover that itch : )

I will follow forge page, and definitely buy if anything tickles my fancy : )

AD:

THE MOBA/MMO MOUSE MARKET IS SCARCE, I WOULD %1000 PERCENT BUY ONE IF GLORIOUS MADE ONE.
I WOULD PREFER WIRELESS OF COURSE, BUT ILL TAKE A GREAT GLORIOUS PRODUCT OVER AN OVERPRICED MEDIOCRE ONE.
