Anyone else ******* your pants hoping that tomorrow morning you'll wake up to find an e-mail from the ZAM admins saying you won one of the beta keys?

My friend was one of the people that got a key from file planet. If you all get a key tomorrow and have the super slow download time like he did. Check the beta site, open the correct ports on your router, and if that doesnt help use utorrent or what not. All he did was run that and copy/paste the file over the one in the patch file. He was d/l and installed in under 4 hours unlike some of the horror stories out there of 3+ days.

I don't ever win anything, I think I am genetically programmed to not be able to win sh*t. So I don't get my hopes up.
I could be the only person who enters a contest and still not win it...

What I don't understand is that the original contest was set to end at 9pm pst August 11. Then Pikko said it would be extended for three days (which to me is August 14, 9pm pst), which would have been... last night. Did I miss the announcement of an additional day?

No, it ended last night and they locked the thread. The guess is that they'll announce/notify winners tomorrow

Now that's just a defeatist attitude.

I want to win, but it wouldn't suprise me if I didn't - I could use an excuse to browse the forums more and get used to uploading pics and things, if Fisher is in phase 3, that's probably going to be the focus of my playtime anyway.

When I first saw the beta key contest I didn't even think I would sign up, but then I figured ah what the ****. If I get in that would be great, it would be my first beta so it would be neat to participate in that experience. At the same time if I don't get in I wont be real bummed because I have a lot of other things on my plate to focus on right now and the info coming in from the other beta players is enough to keep me satiated until launch. Good luck to everyone else though and keep the good info coming!

I'm okay with that I guess. I THOUGHT it was funny nobody posted a "ZOMG, BETA KEY" thread yet :)

Trying not to be anxious but it's difficult. One of my favorite pastimes is breaking software/hardware so i can either troubleshoot it or help others to do so [I enjoy it so much I turned it into a career :D ]

I guess I'll go back to mundinia and wait ;)

Well guys, we have waited and waited (on no fault to ZAM, but SE), but it looks like 100 of us will be lucky and happy tomorrow. As for the rest of us that probably won't get keys, we still have...

100? Is that really all the keys each fan site has gotten?

If so, wow, I would have at least expected 500-600, maybe even 777.

Every time you make a post, people have an opportunity to rate it up or down. How your posts get rated determines your "karma" rating, and when your karma gets high enough, you can get bumped up to Scholar (at which point you can rate other users posts as well).

To get an avatar you need to subscribe to premium through the link at the top of the page. You get an avatar as well as the ability to host some images, have your own blog, and a few other perks as well.

I just rated you up to Scholar :) Grats, and use your rate buttons wisely.

Green arrow when a post is funny, informative, or helpful. Red Arrow when a post is flaming, illegible, or just otherwise a waste of space clogging up the interwebs. They are not Like/Dislike buttons :)

But Avatars are still a premium feature; $10 will buy you 3 months, $20 buys you 6 I think and $30 will buy you a whole year; that's less than $3 a month to support a great site and get shinies like image hosting, your own journal, an avatar, forum thread mouseovers, no ads, smilies, and other things Smiley: schooled

I really doubt SE gave the NA fansites 100 keys each and gave FilePlanet as many as they did. Oh and how many did the German sites report to be giving out, it was almost 15,000 all together?
Gamestar.de (6500 keys)
Buffed.de (5000 keys)
Pcgames.de (2000 keys)
Gamona.de (1000 keys)
Anifo.de (150 keys)
Jpgames.de (100 keys)

100 keys to the 3 NA fansites would be a slap in the face to the fans, I doubt SE is that stupid.

It was actually 4 fansites if I'm not mistaken. Zam, FFXIVcore, Eorzeapedia, and Blue Gartr. Not that that changes much, 300-400 keys in total seems rather low.

Then again perhaps it was just wishful thinking to expect more, especially if open beta starts soon.

Earliest I would expect an answer from SE is around 8am their time, if not later, which means around 6pm central, or later. Then they have to email the keys out to the winners, which will take a while. I'm sure their Devs have been working all day on the issue, and will have most of the evening as well, so with any luck we're close.

Not trying to crap on anyone's excitement, because I'm excited too, but that's the reality of it.

I wouldn't call it stupidity. If you even read the site key count you posted 2 sites got under 200 keys..was SE stupid to only give them 250 combined keys? Or was it just a decision? The EU base is a lot lower than the NA base would be, it was also the latest and smallest base to get into XI so it's no mistake if they show EU more love than they do NA this time around.

the context is obviously referring to keys given out per region. Bringing up the 2 EU sites getting less then 200 doesnt make much sense in that respect, and yes I read what I posted. Just saying it would make the NA fanbase upset, and that not in SE's best interest.

oh yeah open beta update! scheduled for early september. . .
