Certainly not trying to look a gift horse in the mouth, because I'll take any chance at beta I can get, but I talked to two different POL reps today and they were completely unaware of this. Like I said, don't get me wrong...Alla has been my place for info since the olden days of XI so I don't think it's a scam, which I specifically told the reps. But the second guy said they are usually given a heads up about this sort of thing so the call centers can handle the influx of calls -- they received nothing about this though.
This kinda worries me as well. I did have a few questions about this process that I had PM'd Pikko about. She may or may not know and with the deadline fast approaching and most service down during the weekend I think its pretty important to get answers asap.
*edit* Pikko replied while I was posting. Crazy plant ninjas!
Any word on how many lucky winners there will be in the drawing? Would be nice if more than just a handful of people are selected, but I guess any amount is more than none. Good luck to everyone and hope to see some of you in testing soon. Edited, Mar 4th 2010 7:39pm by BetterThanThou
