    If you're really worried you should be able to go through the sign up process again, however if you receive an error saying the email account is already in use then that is actually a good sign as that confirms your original application was processed otherwise your account wouldn't be on file.

    Agreed. That was my biggest concern as well.

    I signed up via a gmail address 30 mins ago, haven't received a confirmation.

    Wow it looks like you really went out of your way to make me look bad. Enjoy this reply from me because it's the last of the kindling I'm going to put into the fire. Flame all you want, Mr. Anime. I didn't come here to start an argument I simply asked a question. If you wanna get mad or bitter feel free. Just don't do it here because I'm sure the people actually contributing to this discussion don't want to see it. Myself included.

    Are you implying something with this.

    (Also, I just quoted a post, you went through my post history. Who put in the most effort?)

    I honestly think you're doing exactly the same thing as people who you don't sympathise with, how is it any different? :x

    This is correct, all the links in the email were routed through bluehornet servers. That's why I just went straight to beta page at first to make sure it's legit, and then just sandboxed my browser and signed up from referral link.

    Email they sent newsletter itself from however is [email protected]. Beta signup confirmation comes from [email protected]

    EDIT: https://beta.guildwars2.com/resend works for my gmail account. I received confirmation email almost instantly upon typing my gmail address into that page. Original confirmation email never came.

    Well this sure is interesting.



    That's me attempting to first sign up again using my same specifications as earlier today (7 hours ago). When it tells me that my email is already in use I then try the resend. It tells me that my email is not recognized by their system.

    Yeah, that's what I'm encountering as well.
    I hope you haven't forgotten my role in this little story. I'm the leading man. You know what they say about the leading man? He never dies.

    If you give in to your impulses in this world, the price is that it changes your personality in the real world. The player and character are one and the same.

    Btw are people making multiple e-mails and signing up loads to get beta keys?

    If so won't ArenaNet notice and not give them the keys because its unethical?

    That has to be some crazy ass backwards bug on the server then. I'd keep tuned into the Twitter or Facebook page for any updates. Or worst case scenario retry later this evening once the rush dies down.

    Must have hit googles spam-filter, didnt get any confirmation for my @gmail.com adress either.

    Most likely because a TON of equal looking mails have gone out within very short timeframe = typical spam.

    Yeah some people are making multiple emails and applying for each email. What ArenaNet does is up to them and I doubt we will hear about what happens since it is a beta by invite only, they could essentially not pick whomever decides to apply with multiple email addresses.

    https://beta.guildwars2.com/resend worked for me. Got my confirmation.

    Easy to do a:

    "delete from table where IP-adress = used multiple times at sign up"
