Hi guys I Just thought i'd chip in my 2 cents. I'm a courier by trade and deal with international transport all the time.
"Shipper has received information" means they have created a consignment note with DHL. This does not mean it's necessarily been picked/packed yet. Several days of "Shipper has received information" like what happened to us means they are still packing all our boxes most likely to send batches out each day.
If nothing else, I'd really like to know what service was booked with DHL since we paid $15ish for delivery - a 'snail mail' service that will take a few weeks or a speedier 3-5 days service.
AFAIK DHL does not have a "snail mail" service. They are an express transport company internationally. They only have "fast" and "very fast but it's gunna cost you."
3-5 days is actually a pretty good estimate for most first world areas. I got notice that my parcel had reached the first point in DHL's line Monday in Germany, and I'm expecting it to arrive in Australia by Friday/Monday. Times can vary based on your country. If it gets held up in customs sorry you're shit outa luck and there's nothing Larian, DHL or zombie Jesus can do to speed things up.
Am I annoyed? Yes. I had friends getting impatient and ended up just buying a second copy of the game to get started. I'll put the CE one on my wife's account once it arrives.
