I'll give it a go
I want to be in the beta for several reasons, obviously I want to play the game because I enjoyed it in CB, can't lie there ;). Also though I would like to compare it to my experience in CB, while it was fun there were many lackluster or strange choices in certain mechanics and I would like to see how much of it was improved from CB to OB, although I suspect some of the changes to be made in retail as well. Hopefully if we can actually leave them feedback I can leave some more detailed thoughts and bug reports which I couldn't during P3. I would like to check out this new "mob balance and placement" that happened, limsa lominsa had a terrible lack of good grinding spots that most of which supported only two people at the most, I am hoping this changed. There is also some mobs I would like to test if were actually changed, my gladiator could defeat a decent challenge mole with ease, then die horribly to same conned Dodo. I would also like to put more effort into crafting this time around, specifically alchemy and trying to find some of the unfound recipes such as potions and maybe ethers if we can go that high (they did say more crafting recipes were added).
Why should *I* get this key? For one, assuming the next batch of keys is limited, I would gladly give one away in a similar fashion, though we don't know if next batch will be unlimited or not. Secondly, I also have a tendency to answer questions shouted into chat in cities and around aetheryte,as many people find difficulties in certain game mechanics (leves, ability sets macros for class changing, crafting tips etc.) and I gladly explain these to them which can help some of the newbies out getting this stuff going.
