It seems to be a luck thing. Some people are getting that message, others aren't. I wouldn't call it over 'til the fat lady sings.
Not to sound like a complainer but I think most of us have better things to do than wait for the retarded antics of SE to allow us to play. I wanted to play in open beta especially since my time in phase 3 was cut so damned short but I've got more important things to do. I'm considering even canceling my preorder now. Not getting into open beta wouldn't be the end of the world, it's the way SE is working here that's getting on my nerves. It's been one thing after another, they tempt you with goodies then throw a vice around your nuts and squeeze. Is this the same kind of bull**** we're gonna see when the release date arrives?
Oh I'm sorry! You purchased the collector's edition but due to errors on our behalf you're not gonna get to play until the standard edition comes out! Thanks for the money, bai!
I know this is a rant but I'm sick and SE is just pressing the wrong buttons.
