Actually I was in CB, we were told they would not work with OB.
Actually, last night the instructions site specifically told us that we didnt need to apply and they would email us with a key before they took it down *after* all the keys were gone, then later told us "whoops not gonna do that"
I can't believe how many CB people I'm hearing whine that they're the only people that's affected by this. I have never been able to have access to this game. It's really hard for me to have sympathy for you.
as above, misinformation globally, we were essentially lied to, followed up by a lack of any knowledge of whats actually going on. After going through all their tests and ideas which may or may not have worked in limsa lominsa coupled with having to play with everyone in only a single city with oddly balanced monsters and lack of good grind spots after inevitable running out of guildleves (which had no way to retry after dc failing them) it goes without saying. Also the low surplus cap...
We want to play this new version where supposedly they fixed much of that. I wont say I didnt have fun in beta, but it was also rigged with all sorts of problems that hampered how much of that ti could be enjoyed. While cool, what we were given was lackluster, a LOT was missing.
With that said, I can sympathize with everyone as we are all being left in the dark after a ****-poor performance of opening it involving issues with could have easily been lessened with a little bit of preparation.
I am also not hearing CB people say "they are the only ones hurt by this" but we certainly have been insulted by SE, and many of us never tried to get a key at first because of their bad post. You should at least try understand that. Edited, Sep 2nd 2010 2:42pm by Silverwyrm
