    I ordered mine on 27th March in batch 953 and although I'm looking forward to it, I'm not getting impatient. I don't even know what the original due date was. It would probably be different though if this was a new test rather than an upgrade from Big Y-500. It will come when it comes.

    Received my results today.

    Batch 953. Upgrade from Big Y-500. New sample had to be provided, which they received early May.

    Unnamed variants up from 2 to 16. Happy with that. The Block Tree is still being updated, other results for others on tree are still being evaluated.

    One of my project members in Batch 952 who sent in a fresh sample back in April just got still another delay, this time to 07/29/2019 - 08/12/2019.

    My results are still projected for this coming Wednesday, 07/17/2019, through 07/31/2019, and I also sent a fresh sample in back in April. I'm in Batch 953.

    I'd been pretty well blessed with FTDNA up until this Big Y-700 upgrade set of delays.

    Waiting is not something I'm particularly good at.

    I feel the same way as my father has also done FGC Y Elite and BigY 500. I won't be that surprised if BigY 700 doesn't find anything new. I'm more interested in my father's closest match's results. He's also in batch 954, and has done Y Elite but hasn't done BigY. His results combined with my father's will expand FTDNA's data for my branch of their haplotree.

    This morning when I checked, the Big Y-700 results for a 106/111 match of mine with the Stephens variant of my surname were there. Thank God!

    That's a good sign, since he was in Batch 953 with me.

    Maybe mine will come in today or tomorrow, and maybe those of the project member I mentioned above will come in, as well.

    Same here, FTDNA delayed my Batch 952 again, now estimated between 07/29/2019 - 08/12/2019.

    Oh well, I must be patient...

    Mine also has been further delayed even though ordered at the end of March. Now Batch 954, estimated completion 07/22/2019 - 08/05/2019

    I got results today, batch 954, ordered 3/31 (last day of initial discounted Y500-Y700 upgrade offering). My original Big Y required a new sample; the upgrade did not require a new one. Assuming that there isn't a big random factor at play here, I suspect mine represents the current standing of tests that fully succeed on the first attempt (i.e., a best case scenario).

    Having watched a couple of kits go through months of regular pushbacks in the expected date (one pending now for 18 months, and another only resolved by multiple complaints to FTDNA over months), these are undoubtedly on autopilot, meant only to provide potentially false reassurances to the impatient. It is perhaps too early to conclude that intervention is required for even the earliest of the Y500-Y700 upgrades, but anybody 6 months out from ordering any Big Y should probably take no reassurance whatsoever from a newly updated delayed date message. FTDNA needs a process in place to identify kits that have gotten lost (the two referenced above were purchased after the last Big Y 500 Christmas sale but before the Big Y 700 introduction, so clearly fell through the cracks of the introduction of the new test -- even to this day, the one that did get done never got Y500 STR's only Big Y 500 SNPs).

    Correction: the kits that fell through the cracks were ordered after the last Christmas original Big Y; shortly before introduction of Big Y500, and the one has only been pending for about 15 months, not 18 (like that's any better)

    The due date is updated automatically once you reach the last date of the original estimate. It's not actually based on your own individual sample and its progress. I wouldn't give the predicted dates much heed except that once I get to the initial due date, I keep a closer eye on monitoring when results arrive.
