Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)

Exactly... 3 ring circus... and no one needs to confirm it.
Sent in a ticket and got this back
We are sorry but the keys were gone in less than a minute. We still have 4,000 keys to give away in July and for the rest we are going to hold sweepstakes for 1,000 keys each every week. This will give people a few days to enter into the drawing and we will randomly select the winners.
This was so much bigger of a draw than we could have anticipated.
Mr. Murphy posted the following on twitter:
"all keys are out. I'm actually on travel, in another country, so I'm just now getting caught up. They have been posted."
then the following
"BUT, if you did NOT get a key today. DON'T fret. We have more. We've just been asked to space them out. More details to come."

Mr. Bill Murphy saying it was "badly communicated". At least he saw it with his own eyes!
And yes I agree, it wasn't badly communicated it was terrible....

Guys, again, I've been out ALL day. I don't handle the giveaways. But yes, they were posted, and NO they won't be the last round. 1/2
I'm sorry this was badly communicated, but we're working on a better more fair way for the next batch.

The next batch will likely be a random sweepstakes giveaway. You'll have several days to enter, and we'll draw a random batch of winners.

Just ... wow ... no pun intended. I am officially done with MMORPG ... having been a member for years, reading- commenting only now and then when the need is there. Just awful MMOROG ... just plain awful.
lol, some times i swear this site is ran out of someones basement.
Originally posted by Stryx74 The keys were posted to the old WoD Beta giveaway page at 7:58 pm EST and they were gone by 7:59. There was probably a 20 second or less window where you could have snagged one. They should have announced ahead of time what page to refresh because most people were probably waiting for a main page announcement that never came.
Same thing mate!
I was expecting an announcement on the main page, even tho i had my both eyes opened on Twitter and Facebook aswell.
I stilll can't accept the thing that the giveway was this poorly organised...
Keys are gone, Bills post confirms that beyond anything.
But yes, this was absolutely terrible =
Hopefully the next ones are much better run, using the old page was the stupidest idea in existence.
Originally posted by sipsusopuli OMG, I just lost 2,5h out of my life spamming f5, I don't even have words for how angry I'm right now, mmorpg staff really don't care about users after all. Horrible communicating and there are still probably people trying to refresh /features/special offers page. Its 4.30am here... .... seriously...
You're not alone...
Don't forget the majority did the same. At least you've participated in the server overload, lol.
