Open beta hasn't started yet, you were in closed beta stage two. And yes it's been confirmed that everyone who was in Closed will get keys sent to them. But this hasn't happened yet as Open Beta was delayed today.

You mean closed beta.

You should keep up with your email... they sent out an email to the closed beta participants last week or the week before that detailing how to register your closed beta key with the open beta (they provided step by step instructions iirc) as all the closed beta keys were being revoked.

From what I understand you should be able to reapply for one in the open beta but according to the email they sent this morning they might be staggering how they release keys. IE: it might be something like 2000 new users per day or maybe just the first 5000, then in a week another 10000.

Your closed key was to guarantee you a slot in the open beta from what I can gather.

Has it? The only information I have see stated that closed testers had to register their key. It wasn't an automatic thing.... ?

That was my understanding, but as I wasnt in CB I might be misinterpreting what I heard. But it is definite that those in CB will be able to get into OB.

Unfortunately I cant find the posting but going off of the announcement they had about registering your beta key to receive a new one seemed pretty cut and dry.

Register your old key to get a new one. Don't register your key and you don't.

Maybe someone knows which posting I'm talking about and can re-post it here.

You were told to register your phase 3 keys before the end of phase 3 and you will carry over to the next phase like Alpha Testers carried over to Phase 1, 2 and 3. However now it seems everyone has to re-register when it goes live based on this new email even if you were a previous tester..but I read the email @4am so I could be misunderstanding >.>

Well, I'm screwed if that's true because I accidentally deleted my closed beta key.

EDIT: Never mind...I found it in a Word document, lol.

Not really, you can register for a new key but you may not get in due to a limit in the number of keys released. I'm pretty sure the point of registering your CB key was to ensure your spot in the OB.

Keep in mind if you register for a new one that since you didn't follow instructions your ******** someone else out of a key. (Edit: If i was in fact correct in interpreting their intentions. )
