    I did this just as you must have posted it. Eff those botting tools and the tools that use them.

    Lol and MMORPG staff is quiet about this... why in the hell don't you guys do the 1 IP per key thing? Or something..

    You guys realize these people are botting several keys and them selling them for profit.

    Maybe you should support those who actually support this site instead of coming by, taking the key and leaving.

    It's not like they don't want the keys to go out to actual people, though.  My guess is that they had specific distribution guidelines as opposed to doing a sweepstakes of sorts as there is no way they wouldn't know bots would pick them up instantly.  First come first served manual opt in would probably be best, with negating duplicate sources.

    When it first came up, I only clicked on it to find out how much the phrase "limited" was.  Though I chuckled when I saw it was at zero as well; too busy this month to play any betas.
    Due to frequent travel in my youth, English isn't something I consider my primary language (and thus I obtained quirky ways of writing).  German and French were always easier for me despite my family being U.S. citizens for over a century.  Spanish I learned as a requirement in school, Japanese and Korean I acquired for my youthful desire of anime and gaming (and also work now).  I only debate in English to help me work with it (and limit things).  In addition, I'm not smart enough to remain fluent in everything and typically need exposure to get in the groove of things again if I haven't heard it in a while.  If you understand Mandarin, I know a little, but it has actually been a challenge and could use some help.

    Also, I thoroughly enjoy debates and have accounts on over a dozen sites for this.  If you wish to engage in such, please put effort in a post and provide sources -- I will then do the same with what I already wrote (if I didn't) as well as with my responses to your own.  Expanding my information on a subject makes my stance either change or strengthen the next time I speak of it or write a thesis.  Allow me to thank you sincerely for your time.

    Have to agree that something seems odd. I am home sick today and just read this site before heading over to my other source for MMO news and when I clicked back, they were gone. Literally, less than a 15 span of time. I would really say it was closer to 10 minutes, but wanted to be conservative.

    If the ebay keys would have been $2-5 I would have probably bought one, but $15.... reported.

    I call BS on this. Someone needs to look into this. I just looked on EBay and the keys are for sale for $5. Reporting as many as I can, but...
  • drtack1drtack1 Member UncommonPosts: 273
    Yea whoever is selling those keys are violating quite a bit of infringement laws coupled with the TOS. Funny they take a chance of being sued for 10 X the amount they will ever get for selling them, I reported all the sellers I saw. GG

    Well poo... those went quickly.
  • CaboSoulCaboSoul Member UncommonPosts: 41

  • grafhgrafh Member UncommonPosts: 320

    It is extremely retarded that they do not stagger the batch of key releases in these circumstances....

    Not everyone can be on the mmorpg site constantly unless they have nothing else in life to do. Those that work full time or have kids etc can not check that often so much and staggering them at least would give a better chance for us that would like one to get a shot at it.

    I am betting as well here that there are multiple emails used from same people just to get the keys and to sell them on etc etc. Lowbie peasants with no morals.

    People have requested over and over and over again to change the giveaway rules, but whoever is in charge is not interested.

    This site has sold out long time ago and is only about clicks and advertising.

    They don't care for who gets a key, as long as a giveaway generates clicks and adds to the 3,1mio "member" (ha ha ha) count, so that there is something they can show the companies' marketing departments.

    I have never understood why they don't do a drawing based on current accounts and dole them out fairly and by the numbers. Surely they aren't clueless as to how these grab bags really work out with the bots or is that their plan all along?

    I am sorry guys but we do everything we can to stop the bots.  The problem is that they are not likely "bots" but real people with multiple accounts.  We do limit IPs to 3 (and we do this because big ISPs also use proxies and many users can have the same IP) but that does not matter either - there are tons of proxy tools that let people have tons of IPs.

    FYI there is a second batch of keys that will be released in the next 2-3 hours.

    On top of this the bots are lying when they click the "I'm not a bot" Captcha box. :chuffed:

    Did you not learn from the Alpha BDO keys, and yet you still made these first come first serve? If 1/20th of the keys got to your actual member's I'd be surprised. Very shameful display.

    I'm a little ticked off too. I got here, according to the clock on the post, two minutes after the keys were released, and they were all gone.

    Either they only got a dozen or so keys, (more than likely they got 5000), or they were stolen by bots. Less than 10 minutes after these keys were offered there were HUNDREDS of keys up for sale on ebay.

    Sorry, I'm unsubscribing right now.


    Mmm, crow...

    Looks like I am eating crow, they got more keys and parcelled them out, and I got one.
