A few people have posted that, they are recieving beta keys from amazon, not the people who Pre-Purchased but rather Pre-Ordered.

 

So for the ones who did might wanna check your mail over the coming week.

I already pre-purchased from Arenanet, but I also had an olf pre-order still active with Amazon. I got the email, entered the code and got a beta invite and three day head start access, but no Hero's Band.

It's possible Amazon worked this out special with Arenanet, but it's also possible that Arenanet may expand beta access and 3day head start to pre-orders, reserving the Hero's Band for pre-purchases? If so, that's a big expansion of BWE access. Curious to see if there is a new Arenanet announcement today on pre-orders.

You know its great they did this, because the rants about OMG you have to pre purchase to get beta will stop hopefully and also they have been giving out keys this beta which is also a relief because those rants will stop also.

 

They want people to experience the game and they are heading for the right direction. I am very happy they did this because I was pretty much getting annoyed with people making silly posts knowing that anet will offer beta like everyone else.

Something's not completely right with the situation. Either Amazon screwed up or Rubi isn't quite up to date. Keep your eyes open guys.

 

From twitter:

 

is it true that pre-orders get beta access? Bit of a slap in the face to pre-purchasers don't you think?

 

No, pre-orders get one day headstart access at launch, that's all. ~RB2

I guess people working for ArenaNet has no clue as to what is going on within the company :P

What I DO remember is that Amazon clearly said their system cannot POSSIBLY do pre-purchase.  But maybe their offering it to older preorders as a nice way to make up for it?  Who knows, honestly.

There has been miscommunication before, so it's a quite possible scenario. ;)

Retailers didn't give a sh*t about what ArenaNet planned since two weeks before official start of pre-purchase. That Amazon wants a piece of the cake is not suprising.

Though it's important to know which Amazon we are talking about.

Amazon.fr  does everything, including collector's edition. Amazon.de does only sell normal editions, because they just set the release date to April, 10th and treated it like it was out. As you do not recieve anything beyond the pre-purchase box here in Europe, thats perfectly fine.

Not sure what other Amazon stores, especially in the US, did.

I'll wait to the day's end when the moon is high
And then I'll rise with the tide with a lust for life, I'll
Amass an army, and we'll harness a horde
And then we'll limp across the land until we stand at the shore

In some cases retailers upgraded a pre-order to a pre-purchase as soon as the complete amount was payed to help players who accidentally ordered the wrong one yet still payed in full.

Maybe Amazon tried to automate that but accidentally included many or all pre-orders?

I think Amazon was knocked off the pre-purchase retailers list, so they probably don't even have beta keys.

When dealing with the GW2 Twitter, the most reliable posters are MK (Martin) and RB (Regina). At least one of the others have made mistakes and contradictions in the past, so I take anything from someone other than MK or RB with a grain of salt. (RB2 is Rubi, not Regina). [edited details, I don't want to seem like I'm picking on anyone].

On a side note, Arenanet confirmed on the blog that they doubled the number of servers for BWE2, so I'm guessing they want to make sure they fill them. Also, since Amazon US is not a pre-purchase partner, only a pre-order partner, I would think it's pretty certain that Arenanet not only gave them keys good for beta for pre-orders, but gave them the details to publish along with the keys detailing the benefits.

Hopefully Martin or Regina will find out exactly what's going on with Amazon and tweet the details sometime today.

I remember Regina giving out misinformation at least once as well (When she told us there will be other modes beside conquest in sPvP). Anyway, I still think it's good for everyone to know, if Arenanet decide to change the status of the accounts purchased with the keys given away to Amazon (I imagine that this is quite possible). While I'd love the game to get a lot of exposure during the BWE, it will suck immensely if  that doesn't turn out to be the case or if Arenanet let people play in the beta, but they end up getting only 1 day head-start instead of the 3 days promised by Amazon.

Amazon is still giving out keys and other than the generalized reply from Rubi on twitter earlier today, they just will not respond to questions about Amazon keys.

Anyone in the US not ready to just pre-purchase, but wanting to get into the event this weekend, might want to consider the Amazon pre-order while they are still giving out the keys. I can imagine Arenanet asking Amazon to suspend key distribution if it was in error, but I doubt they will cancel keys already distributed, since Amazon is an authorized partner and they have to have gotten these keys from NCSoft/Arenanet for pre-order customers. (Amazon US doesn't offer pre-sales).

Thanks for the heads up. The pre-order now clearly states you have access to the beta weekend events and 3 day headstart.

 

I can't believe this game is nearly here.

I don't know which lands amazon are you talking about (the USA one I guess?) but the german amazon had informed me that they will have a version WITH beta access after I had preordered the "standard edition" months ago.

Then they had changed the Standard Edition to "Standard Edition without Beta" and had the prepurchase one as "Standard Edition with Beta".

So I cancelled my previous and prepurchased.

They sent me my package (actually a box with the code in it only) at the 7th April already. ^_^

So a prepurchase from the German Amazon was possible but limited cause after a few days it was sold out already.
