    No, I didn''t get a key yet.

    I don't think anyone has.

    They are tweaking the US servers and when they are ready we all get in.

    Which will be by the end of this year imageimageimageimage

    Thats what I've read anyway.

    they've send out a mail to apoligize, because they need to fintetune their servers. but you'll get into beta before the end of the year :)

    Here is part of the email sent its the client they are working on.

    As it turned out, we are not quite ready yet. Of course this doesn’t mean that we will push back your Closed Beta access with a few months, but we do need some additional weeks to get things up and running. Our American servers have gone live recently and the first heavy testing on these speed monsters has been completed. Our development team will release a new revision of the game by the end of next week. That new version will be tested and stabilized to function as the platform on which future Closed Beta activities can be planned.

    So we are almost there, I for one cannot wait.

    No one has gotten their keys yet.
    And on November 30th they said it was safe to say we would be in by the end of the year.

    But they did also say that they needed a few weeks.

    So... Between December 14th and the end of the year, more leaning towards the third week of December.

    So the US server's initially going to be closed beta?

    I wish I had followed this website rather than the main website, since it seems like this is where they gave away most of the beta keys. It's been over a year and a half and still no beta invite for me....kind of a bummer.

    Ok maybe I'm lost here, you guys are sayign you got an email with them apologizing for the delay? Cause I've won and the only thing I get to read about is here in this forum? I think some of you need to re-read what you post. No emails other than a news letter was sent to ANYONE. Freeze came on here and stated the delay.

    I got one of the apology e-mails. It was only a line or two, I think. I deleted mine, though. Anybody got a copy of theirs still to post?

    Mmm, well that sucks. It'd be nice to hear from Freeze on here soemtime soon again. Considering I never got one of those apology emails. though I hope I get my beta key, I recieve the news letters so there is no reason I shouldn't get the apology letter, and I check my inbox, spam mail daily -.-. Thanks for clarifying it for me though Zorvan.

    I got one of those emails a while back and deleted it too..  I'm kinda annoyed, I won something, and haven't gotten it in what? 2 months now?  maybe more.


  • ZorvanZorvan Member CommonPosts: 8,912
    Don't worry, Xex. As soon as they're done promoting supposedly famous (I never heard of them 'til the video) rock bands, I'm sure they'll remember they're supposed to be promoting a game and get back to businessimage

    I said something along these lines in the other discussion of this topic, where apparently some fanbois are attacking the beta key winners for complaining. The general response over there seems to be that we're not allowed to complain about the TCoS beta taking so long because other people have been waiting for THEIR beta invites for several years.

    Personally, I think the whole thing is ridiculous. I was thrilled when I received the email that I had won the contest, and told my friends about it, but when they ask now, I can only say "they haven't got around to it yet," to which they usually reply "wasn't that like 2 months ago?" Naturally the conversation usually ends with "what a joke."

    Yeah, after the delays with the beta and sporadic news, along with the official community seemeing to love jumping all over anyone who dares to mention it is TCoS responsibility, not mmorpg.com's, to keep the beta people current since it's them holding the keys; I'd just as soon watch this one slide on by.

    And although I admit it's petty, I will not be giving my key away. I want their "official" community to know that one of their chances at beta was squandered on meimage

    Not to mention I couldn't very well remind people here that key swapping is against the rules if I did it myselfimage

  • jwshaw88jwshaw88 Member Posts: 149

    I agree with you on this one Z, I think I would rather never get the key at this point.  I have participated in beta for several games of late and all I find is disappointment in the game and even a lot of frustration with the technical and customer support.  I thought by beta testing their game and providing value added feedback, attending focus groups and the like that I was helping them make the game better for all the players/customers, but evidently I was just graced with the "priveledge" of playing their game as they want it to be. 

    I really like the concepts listed in the FAQ about how Spellborn will be set up, but I've been down that road before and found that those concepts aren't always delivered upon.  I had high hopes for this game, but for now, I guess I'm just shifting to watch and see mode.

    Yeah I think this is some sort of spam/scam attempt, not sure but it sure looks intriguing. (Chinese mail address but profile says "she" is French... name doesn't match either.)
    Either way, reported. image
