Are there anybody who is on the same boat as me.........

FML

FML, today I signed up and paid for Fileplanet (without knowing there is 30 day trial) for FFXIV key, and I was just 10 min late after it closed.......

So I paid and got nothing while lots of ppl sign up for free trial and got the key.

FML

FML, today my co-worker's dog also ate my lunch.............I am serious....

FML

I really hope Pikko can send me one to cheer me up on my worst day....I am really depressed now.

Lol.

Is that e-mail name? Or first name? Or last name, or forum name I suppose too.

I assume that means I'm tough out of luck, since my username starts with A. Darn.

Thats what I was thinking myself. Im guessing she's gone through the D names.

Im so **** happy I went with Fileplant option now. I would have been a misserable fellow having to go another week without even beta.

Sorry those who dont get it (I understand, its tough), Cong to those who do.

I'm still on A. The people who got theirs earlier were on the list we previously mentioned, where people who contribute a lot/post a lot get rewarded for supporting our community.

When you say "Still on A", is that by email or user name, or what?

Nono Gist I think what Pikko is trying to say is that the people who just got their keys got them off of a list because we've been promoting/helping/posting a lot on the forums. NOW is when the winners are randomized/chosen for real.

Well here's hoping I come home from work to a key. Then I can download over the next 2 days I work and play Monday when I'm off. Here's hoping...

Good luck all and gratz to those who get one!

Wow...could it be that there are more than the "100" that many had thought there to be?

Most likely. Either way, it makes me wonder how Eorzeapedia with their 250,000+ contest ticket exchange, and FFXIVCore with their contest, both managed to get all their keys out already.

They probably used some kind of automated mailer to do it.

I tried that with some friends after we had been drinking a bit, and it is torturous. We were dying before the first film even ended.

But I only have to wait for 'S'! huzzah!

I believe there were a small number of hand picked people and a large number of randomly picked people. Hand picked people might have gotten theirs first.

I'm speculating based on past comments that admins have made here regarding the contest.

Edit: Sorry, didn't see Pikko's post a few up from mine.

Don't see why people would think its only 100 keys, considering the German sites had 5k tickets each. Why on earth would they give the NA community less than 1% of the keys that the German community received? It would stand to reason the fansites got at least 1k keys each. That is assuming Fileplanet received the remaining 12k keys...

Yeah I think there are probably a substantial number of keys.

The fact that I have to send them out one by one doesn't have anything to do with how many we have, believe me.


The fact you sent these out one by one makes me that more appreciative that I got an email from you!

I just got to work, saw the email alert on my phone, and promptly gave up my shift to rush home and celebrate (play).

THANK YOU PIKKO AND ZAM!!!

Yeah, I thought that 100 keys seemed unlikely as well, especially after hearing that SE wanted the open beta to be mainly for stress testing.
