If you signed up for a key on one of the German sites they had a redo. On their sites they said First come, First served. When you signed back up for a Beta key you also had to use a different E-Mail address. I'm not sure what they did but it seems like they messed up somewheir. So if you did apply better get over their and reapply for a key.
German FFXIV Beta Key Giveaways Again Zyuu - 08-07-10 05:48 - 51 comments The German sites that we previously posted about now have their beta key giveaways open again. It also says "first come, first served" - which basically should mean that if you sign-up before the keys are out, you're guaranteed one. Also, emails used on the first giveaway does not work, so use another.
Note that these giveaways now end the 11th August, just like ours do. Also, they're most likely for European Square Enix accounts.
