Is there really a beta weekend this weekend?, I haven't heard about it, where do they announce these
I will be very surprised if they won't have some sort of a semi-public demo event for the actual game before release. It would be terrible from marketing standpoint with essentially all MMOs that are coming out having some sort of a semi-public beta event for potential purchasers to demo the game.
Perhaps they will step up the key-giving for BWE3 for pretty much everyone who asks for one or something.
This is a semi-public demo event. Everyone can get the keys from curse. I just grabed 3 keys for my best friends and we are gonna geek it out.
Very smart move, paying 5$ when you can get one for free.
I'm quite sure we'll see some other key-give-aways on other gaming sites in the next/last few days... like gamespy, ign, etc. (they've done this the last BWE)- fake email, register, enlist ... the chances aren't bad that you'll get a key from at least one site.
Given that I seem to received a beta key from curse without being a premium member I think I'll keep my 5 bucks thank you
I just went to Curse yesterday and got a key, for free.. Not been premium since May this year.
Just got a key for my wife (non-premium), so I'd hold off on buying a premium pass if I were you guys for now. I'm sure IGN and some other sites will be doing giveaways closer to beta also.
You are all welcome Guys!
I'm happy for all of you who got it for free. But when I tried getting one from the IGN give-away for the last beta event, they would post like 200 keys and by the time I refreshed my page they would all already be taken by someone. By that logic I didn't think 20k keys would last more than a half an hour before being all taken.
Considering I wasn't gonna get up at 6AM to get one, I just ended up paying 5$ to get a sure spot
You guys are really paying 5$ for beta keys? lol.. I picked up 3 when they were giving them away just for signing in with 3 separate emails for friends.
I bought premium last Christmas for $10 for one year in hopes of getting a beta key. Turns out I didn't need it because ncsoft sold the beta keys for prepurchases. So I technically ended up spending $90 to get in the beta.
Although everytime the beta shows up, my job asks me to pull doubles (overtime hours) and I can't seem to refuse the extra money.
The most important thing to realize is, no matter what you experience you are never alone; no matter what you are struggling through, there is always someone who is more unfortunate.
