    F2P games make money hand-over-fist. "Cash flow" is no problem at all.

    Blizzard's "greatest" strength in that regard is that it is popular. Not that it has a recurring sub.

    Lastly, Neverwinter are not selling beta access alone. You get a bunch of other goodies, beta access is just one of which, and headstart.

    Didn't realise it was Free-to-Play, and already addressed that above.

    I'm talking from a business view, one of their greatest strengths is their cash flow. Hence why I said; one of the greatest not; the greatest.

    Cut off to 2nd page. Didn't see exchange.

    That's true. Though doesn't really change the point I was driving at; the sub of WoW is no great shakes to the game's success.

    It really is. Cash Flow has allowed Blizzard to expand at the rate they have, and to make the game as great as it is. I'm certain if Blizzard didn't charge a monthly fee, then World of Warcraft actually wouldn't be as successful as it is today.

    Suggest using the torrent, thats what im doing, 500kb/s was better than the 20kb/s from the direct download

    Thanks for the link! I was thinking they'd be all gone by the time I went there (30 minutes after you posted) but there were still about 130 left.

    Ye i already suggested a few pages back that the title of the thread should be something along the lines of [Megathread] Neverwinter , to give it more visibility or something.

    ---------- Post added 2013-03-07 at 10:56 PM ----------

    http://www.destructoid.com/redeem_code.phtml Another 2000 key giveaway , unsure how many left , seems i need to be logged to find that info.

    They posted the next beta key site, but it seems like you need to pay to get it.
