In regards to our Beta Key giveawayFollow

#1 Aug 17 2010 at 10:41 AM Rating: Excellent
Several questions have been asked recently about our Beta Key giveaway contest, specifically regarding the delay in giving out the keys now that the deadline has passed. At present, Square Enix has not been able to supply us with the keys to distribute, so at this time we're not able to complete our giveaway. Rest assured though, once we get the keys, we'll get them out to the winners as soon as possible, and we apologize for this delay.

Yeah, though from what others have said it's because of server issues based on how the gamescom preshow ran went iirc. So it sucks but at least they want to be sure we CAN play when we get the keys Smiley: lol

Thank you for keeping us posted. We all know your hands are tied and you're at the mercy of SE, I'm sure they have some bugs to work out before distributing keys. Either way, we'll all be online playing in a little over a month. :)

And still the best in the world in his class.

♫ Every night, I hope and pray
A beta invite will come my way
A game to hold in my arms
And know the magic of her charms

Cause I want a key
To call my own
I want a beta invite
So I don't have to dream alone

Beta invite, where are you
With a leve oh, so true
And a mouse that I can hold
To feel you near as I grow old?

Cause I want a key
To call my own
I want a beta invite
So I don't have to dream alone

Someday -- I don't know how
I hope you'll hear my plea
Some way -- I don't know how
You'll bring her leves to me

Beta invite, until then
I'll go to sleep and dream again
That's the only thing to do
Till all my beta dreams come true

Cause I want a key
To call my own
I want a beta invite
So I don't have to dream alone

Beta invite, until then
I'll go to sleep and dream again
That's the only thing to do
Till all my beta dreams come true

Cause I want a key
To call my own
I want a beta invite
So I don't have to dream alone ♫

In Silva's case, it DID matter, because he's no longer the unbeatable champion. Chael showed everyone that he's not completely invincible, which is really what he looked like before.

Yup, he won the fight. Definitely. No argument there.

But -still- the best in the world? I'm not so sure about that anymore.

Would you then consider JDS the best HW in the world since he beat Werdum who beat Fedor?

Silva had an injured rib going into the fight too. Chael fought well but this fight also showed Silva could persevere like a true champ XD

Oh and it sucks about the Beta keys. I was looking forward to finding out who won on Monday but it's cool. Patience is a virtue.

Unlikely. otherwise we would have seen an influx of threads reading "I GOT IN TEH BETA!!!!!1111" about now. Plus I believe they need to email each winner individually and if they don't have a definitive time or date for when the keys will arrive it's somewhat pointless contacting the winners until they arrive. Just be patient and wait it out. Speaking of which, I wonder how many will actually continue to post here at ZAM after the keys have been released.

You can't think of it like that. All of the NORMAL posters on zam will still be here, and who knows... maybe 50 people who came here just to make an account will start reading and like what they see. It's better than nothing, and it's at the cost of maybe a few beta keys going to people who won't stay. I'm ok with that.

I mean I'll be honest, the reason why I signed up to come on here was because of the Giveaway, but after a while I stopped signing on because of the contest and more because of the threads and interesting people to talk to. I'll definitely still be here, win or lose, and when official launch releases. :)

Well no I didn't mean it like that, I just meant I wonder how many will continue to post and make threads in this specific forum. Most talk is currently about the beta (More seems to be about complaints, not realizing it's a beta and not the finished product than anything else.) or beta keys either from FilePlanet, here, or someplace else.

I am likely going to stay after the giveaway. I used to post on Killing Ifrit when I played XI, but I like what I see so far here at ZAM. KI boards used to be incredibly laggy, but these do not, and I'm guessing cause it's a sub forum. I also like how all of the games are connected here. Going to be a regular user for sure in anticpation of the game. After I play the game a bit, will probably upgrade to premium as well.

Most talk is currently about the beta (More seems to be about complaints, not realizing it's a beta and not the finished product than anything else.) or beta keys either from FilePlanet, here, or someplace else.


Why is it assumed that if people are unhappy with the state of the beta that they don't some how don't "understand" what a beta is? I'm sure that for every terrible MMO that's ever been released, there was some one squawking about how it's "just the beta" when people complained prior to release, and then it turned out to really be terrible.

In fact I've been in a number of betas, and every single one, most of what was complained about in beta turned out to be a problem when it went live. In UO beta, we complained about rubber banding, rampant bugs and exploits, repetitive skill grinding, etc, and all of that was a problem in the live game. In Warhammer Online beta we complained that World PvP would not work because players just preferred Chaos to Order, and this would result in huge imbalance when it went live. In Wrath of the Lich King beta we complained that damage was way too high in PvP and that certain classes were going to have no chance at all in PvP, and lo, that's exactly what happened.

Give some credit to beta testers, because they are often the same people who are going to be playing the finished game, especially when you've got 100 thousand of them. They may not know what the devs are working on at all times, but they have a pretty good idea of what the devs SHOULD be working on.

Developers are still bound by the rules of time and space. If a game is six months from being done at it's being released in a month, then "It's still beta!" doesn't quite answer the criticism.

I'm not trying to be negative, I just don't understand why this line of thinking is simply accepted as an answer for all concerns or complaints.

I guess fileplanet botched yesterday on their final days worth of keys. They kept people who paid 7 bucks for a sub (and a chance at a key) glued to their monitors all day and half the night. Finally, this morning, they announced that SE failed to give them the last set of keys.

They didn't bother telling their desperate FFXIV fans yesterday that they didn't have keys yet and were going to delay until further notice for the last set. The very least they could have done was tweet at midnight and announce they never received keys, so the last thousand or so diehards could go to bed.

Thanks for staying on top of news to your fans ZAM :) It's appreciated. Gamers have lives too! Well some.. do I guess.. or I've heard something like that or something.

Proof in the puddin that FF fans are much more patient than other games players. If that fileplanet botch would have happened to another games playerbase, the boards would have been flash fried and the screaming and wailing would still continue, i'm sure.

I certainly don't plan to leave after the Beta Key giveaway.

To be perfectly honest, I totally forgot that I had joined this site when I started playing FFXI. I only realized it after I tried to create a new account and found that my email address was already registered here.
