if they weren't frigging idiots they would have pre-sent keys to people who were already in beta and reduced server conjestion... but nooooooo.... they are total tools
Or just not bothered with keys for those people. The people who already had beta access were known, they were flagged or had the service added to their account. It's a ridiculously simple database query to just continue all those people through into open beta with no need for additional shenanigans on their part or ours.
After that all they'd have to do is say "If you were in alpha or beta before, you're set to go on the 31st (became the 1st), if not you can apply for an open beta key on this day, a week beforehand and be ready to go on the 31st (1st)"
Would have been very very simple
