This is definitely one of the ugliest screwups in my book, i know they tried, but damage is damage.
Well, from what [GM]HotSoup's said in that thread, tracking Astro purchases is pretty easy, so if you bought them direct you'll be fine. Ely transactions are incredibly hard to track, so if you bought them with Ely you're probably going to be out of luck.
He hasn't said (despite being asked) how hard/easy it is to track event dispersed ones. I figure it's the same as Ely so I'll never get mine back.
You have to wonder what this will do to the market for darts. Would you want to buy darts with Ely knowing they may vanish at any maintenance and you'll never get them back? I sure as hell wouldn't, and won't.
