well, there's still two days of beta key f5ing to go, not to mention two or three fansite drawings left for everyone. Plus, everyone that just got a key now can give a lucky someone on this forum a key if we should win one here or elsewhere =]

You would think they'd atleast have a 100 to give away, it seems like they had 10 keys in total the way they were snatched up so fast :S...I'm upset cuz i got my new PC and this would've made my day today.

Don't let them win. I'm willing to bet if everyone issues a chargeback on their card, they'll learn pretty quick.

I say, give them till the 16th, and for those that don't get a key, call your CC and have the charge reversed. It clearly says they have keys for their subscribers. They should have given them all out at once then had the fortitude to say they are out, instead of the underhanded cash grab. Removing their 1 month sub link is also dirty. They deserve no less, IMO.

using those few bucks on a lottery ticket might be wiser.
I'm keeping faith on being one of the lucky persons and get the key from ZAM.

who's with me!?


I have a feeling SE postponed the giveaways because of some sort of deal with fileplanet. I can remember the Aion beta keys being given away by the thousands to fansites and by my count between three different fansites I see about 10,000 posts for FF14 beta keys. That's really not that many. Sounds to me like they are just trying to get people to pay 7 bucks for them before the rest of us get them for free.

there's always a chance, but noone knows for sure except the people working at FP.
Although, since it is supposedly a daily thing i'd expect about the same amount to come out tomorrow +/- an hour from when they did today

Yeah, they announced that it will happen again tomorrow. I'm not really holding out though... a 2 second application window is ridiculous. Especially when it doesn't matter who submitted first.

Their Twitter feed it looks like they all got taken in about 2min. So either a lot of people clicked right away or they didnt have very many. Thankfully I was one of the lucky people to get a key.

A GM on FilePlanet Forums said that they would give a 2 minute warning in the thread. Then at 12:59 PST they posted:

It would be wise to start looking for keys soon...

Sure enough at 1:00 PST the giveaway began.

Look again for the same time tomorrow, but I'd also check that forum to see if any future announcements are made by that admin.

GRRRRRRRRR! Apparently my photo won, however it was listed as someone else having created it. I created that last photo they have listed as the winner, not TheOtherGuy like they have listed. I've e-mailed them but no response yet. The one I am talking about is a mock of the Staple's commercial. And I actually put a little bit of effort into it. All I had to work with was paint, luckily it now has a transparent cut and paste so that saved quite a bit of time, though the pictures are still really rough since my hand is not all that steady cutting around object with a mouse. That and I was kind of angry that I accidently save the first Miqo'Te image in black and white, but I was getting rushed for time so just went with it. I really hope that they work with me to fix the mistake. GRRRRRRRRR!

Got my key. The interesting part is I was in the middle of browsing the web when I refreshed the fileplanet forum and saw a message posted 3 minutes ago that the keys will be up in any second. I refreshed and submitted and it went through.

On the game: I got pretty lost in the beginning, not knowing that you can go to the bottom floor of the city. So at first I didnt know how to get to "zephyr gate." Game right now is basically doing guild leves. Fetch, complete, and repeat. Im not sure if its any different than "grinding" out in the field. It just makes it a hassle running back for more guildleves only to basically fight monsters.

If thats the case then they have made it impossible for anyone to know if/when keys have been released for the day. Suppose we just sit here clicking refresh for the rest of the night to no avail.

I guess I am crap out of luck?

I got the text alert from the File Planet Twitter page saying keys would be available in a few seconds. I went to the File planet BETA page and clicked the link. It took me to a page to sign in and pay for the 3 month service. I paid with paypal and hit submit. All it did was take me back to the page that said, "That was fast...." and nothing. I checked the beta archive, and nothing is showing up in there.

I guess I can try again tomorrow if they do it around this time, but if its during the day, I wont be able to log on from my work PC. Hopefully I win one tomorrow lol. Anyways I guess that is a $15 lesson learned!

I've given up. Quite frankly I belive FilePlanet's distribution method's are bullsh*t. Who has time to seriously camp a site for 5 days straight trying to get a beta key?

My dad called me over earlier around 11am PST asking me to bring him something from the grocery store. I reluctantly get up and go over there, not wanting to leave my post in front of my laptop. I get there and decide to stay a few hours and just constantly refresh my twitter client on my BB. I figure if need be, I can just login on his pc.

Anyway 15-20mins ago I get up and leave. He lives about 10mins from me. Upon getting home and refreshing my twitter client, beta keys went out the MOMENT I got up. Which I KNEW would happen! I'm beyond frustrated and I just give. I'll be working tomorrow and I can't access twitter or FilePlanet at work. And trying to do it from my BB proved too difficult. I just can't believe the system they're using. It's completely BS.

The whole method to the way they are doing this is ********* Its all a scheme to get twitter followers and paid subscriptions to a typically worthless service. I would have been happier if they just asked you to pay for the key outright and not a one in a billion chance that you might just luck out and get a hold of one.

That happened to me with my iPhone 3G this past Thursday. The beta form all filled out but by the time I hit submit, I got the "...you fail because you tried to fill this form out over 3G."
