    So you have not given them money, or contributed in any way, yet you are expecting a free handout because you're special for giving them your email?

    Exactly why are you entitled to anything at all?

     

    And I dont understand why people feel they are somehow owed something in exchange for how long they have been signed up for beta. It's not like you are exerting effort, or paying money, or otherwise "enduring" the time between signing up and getting a beta key. Since when does doing nothing ensure getting something for free?

    It's a random pool, get over it. I want a beta key too.

    How about the people that signed up already?

    Because doing things like this is marketing 101 to create awareness of the game and excitement,just about every MMO dev does it.

    Also signing up for beta never carries any guarantee  of getting in bar a very few cases in the past just a random chance.

    Usually the only way to work your way in is by signing up early and being active enough in the game's community either in the official forums if any or social media to get noticed.

    I'm sorry but that is ignorant.

    "If they want my money they better give me something for free!" 

    that is not logic. You will be able to give them your money for a paid service when the game releases.

    The level of entitlement on these forums and in this genre in general is pretty disgusting.

    The daily digest email from MMORPG anouncing the giveaway came just after midnight.  The same time they always arrive.

    UK time:

    The mmorpg announcement was around mid-day over here, with the promotion starting a few hours later at 5pm. Not sure where the midnight reference comes from.

    How the heck did i not get a key i was there bang on 5pm UK time and went through first time saying it could take up to 24hours to get a key. Still nothing!! granted there is still 20mins left but i dount i will get one in that time.

     

    So much for first come first serve!

    Well looks like I got cheated.  Got the thank you message and notification I would get a key within 24 hours.  Well it is almost 24 hours now and no key.

     

    So basically they got my email address so they can send me spam marketing but I got nothing in return.  Total BS.

    The whole promotion looks like a clever stunt to get hand on ~ 100.000 email-adresses within a few minutes.

    Yep this is exactly what it looks like.  Honestly there should have been a message saying they were out rather than a message thanking me for my partisipation then not providing me a key.    I honestly didn't even catch the message "if you are selected" and if I would have known I was apparently entering a lottery rather than a guarenteed key if I submitted in time, I would never have signed up.  Honestly I feel like complaining to Carbine about this BS even though I know it is meaningless.  Don't even care about the key, just pissed because I feel it was just a marketing stunt to get my email address.

    As an update I just got a reminder email from godandkey.com about the Wildstar beta with my key.A reminder for something I never received in the first place lol.

    Of course now I've fond my NCSoft master account has been permanently banned...not a good start.

    The sense of entitlement is strong with this thread.  It was first come, first serve.  Sorry you guys were too slow.  I got mine without any issue and no unusual spam.
