Dude there is no reason to be snippy about it - I am just pointing out that what isn't simple is the contradictory messages out there.
It just seems like common sense that the very recent information directly from S-E would take precedence over the week old information that was relayed second hand through ZAM.
There was this guy who was very religious and prayed every day. One day it began to rain hard, and his neighborhood started to flood. He prayed to the Lord for deliverance but the rain continued. A short while later a neighbor knocked on his door and said "I have a rowboat, and I'm going to row to safety, would you like to come with?" The man said "I have faith that the Lord will save me." The neighbor shook his head and left.
Soon the water rose higher and the religious man was forced to move to the second story of his house, where he looked out his window and prayed for deliverance, but the rain didn't stop. After awhile the fire department showed up with a motor boat, and offered to take the man to safety. "No," he said, "I have faith that the Lord will save me." The men in the motor boat left him to look for other people who were trapped.
Soon the water rose higher and the man was forced up onto the roof of his home. He prayed to the Lord to save him, but the rain continued. As night began to fall and the rain continued, a coast guard helicopter spotted him. A diver and a rope were dropped, but he told the diver to leave. "I have faith that the Lord will save me." The diver returned to the helicopter and it left. Soon the water rose so high that there was no where for the man to go, and he drowned.
Because the man was a devoutly religious man, he went to heaven. When he got there he went to visit God. He said "Lord, I prayed to you, and I had faith that you would save me, and yet you let me drown in that rain storm. why?"
The Lord said to him "Well I sent you two boats and a helicopter, what more did you want?"
TL;DR You have the answer you're seeking, but it's so simple and obvious that you want to complicate it. You don't need to over think it. When Open Beta begins, try to log in. if you can't, then check your email for a key. If you don't have a key, follow the directions to get the key.
