STO Lifetimer, dont have an invite yet, and it was promised!

After reading the preorder packets, for a FREE 2 PLAY game i dont care neither, i dont expect to get into the game immediatly after launch. Preorder packets garant a queuefree login, which shows me where the preorder intention goes into.

 

Biting my teeth on each other, in my eyes somewhat too bad idea of preorder packets combined to a F2P game.

 

So if i get an invite i dont care, i will try out, but i wont sit hours and hours in a login queue.

So your mad because you spent 20$ on a great game that had a BONUS neverwinter beta? Again why are you mad? YOu got this FOR FREE for purchasing a game thats not even associated with DnD. Good lord, you are not entitled to anything except TL2, anything extra you should be happy about.

No not at all, I have beta keys from a few things. I believe you bought TL2 because you wanted the game, it was cheap and lastly it gave you beta access. Think of the weekend as a perk? Apparently you didn't do much research on PWE or Cryptic? If you did any research you would have learned to never "expect" anything, for you will surely be disappointed. Hence, you should have foreseen this.

Exactly. What boggles my mind is that people EXPECT anything other then the game when they preorder. Anything other then the game is BONUS and you should be happy you got it at all. Ungrateful.

how do you know it's for the third beta weekend? i put in my code and all it says is download with be available soon thats all

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

Well Yes.

I had two options if i remember correctly - either preorder like i did from Perfect World and get whatever this is (third place beta access...), or pre-order from Cryptic and get TL I. I should have gone with Criptic.....

It's from their forums - i don't have the exact link but that is what they said when they posted the "Founder Packs".

Essentially only the best "Pack" entitles you to be in the 1st Beta Weekend. If you bought the PC Gamer February Edition Magazin and got a Code you are entitled to access from the 2nd Beta Weekend and everyone else who were promised early Beta access are entitled from the 3rd Beta Weekend.

this is currently the only information i see on beta

Neverwinter's first Beta Weekend begins February 8, 2013. On that day, The Forgotten Realms becomes a reality for brave heroes and heroines to explore and dungeon delve. Victory and epic loot await the fearless and the fast, but for the weak of body and mind, there can be only ignominious death.

One way to gain coveted access to the first Neverwinter Beta Weekend is with a Hero of the North Founder's Pack. But don't fret! There are more ways yet to be revealed for hungry and anxious adventurers to join the Neverwinter Beta Weekends.

You may have also noticed that our Founder's Packs are not yet available for purchase. We took 20 on our Perception check and uncovered a few traps and several goblins. As a result, we temporarily delayed the start of our Founder's Pack sales while we slayed… um, addressed any outstanding issues.

For our Neverwinter fans looking to grab a Founder's Pack and secure guaranteed access to our Beta Weekends, the wait will be precious short.

Stay tuned to our homepage, ye Heroes of the North for the latest information on our Founder's Pack promotion. Keep an action ready because your turn is coming right up.

Sincerely,

The Neverwinter Team

Expecting to get what was promised is perfectly reasonable. If they promised beta access, they should give just that and be very happy and grateful they got your money and trust.

I'm not as mad as you, because I didn't preorder TL2.

While I don't understand why the OP is 'mad' because he assumed he would get in earlier (with no promises that he would), when something like beta access is used in the promotional package to sell a game it stops being a 'bonus' and starts being part of the sold product.

Ofc someone that purchases a promtional package has a right to have expectations for that purchase.

Get off the 'modern entitled ungrateful society' meme train maybe and start looking at things on a case by case basis. Blanket thinking is lazy thinking.

While it is true he was promised beta with his purchase, and as such was part of the product package sold, the issue is he wasn't promised what stage of beta he would get in to. So they did adhere to their promise, the matter is whether you are satisfied with the result.

 

I don't think its a matter of feeling entitled to any sort of "extra," but that they would get into beta earlier than others instead of not at all or at the end.

Its from the 2nd weekend, not the 3rd.

http://nw-forum.perfectworld.com/showthread.php?30761-Neverwinter-Beta-Weekend-details-Read-this-first

The only people getting 1st weekend so far are people buying the founder packs (obvious cash grab is obvious).

Also it was very obvious from the wording of the original TL2 offer (which I also got) that you would not have access to all the betas. It promises you will get into beta, not which stage you get into it.

Here is the exact wording from the email I recieved with the TL2 offer:

"Pre-order Torchlight 2 to gain access the PAX East Game of Show! *Exact date of access will vary."

Maybe they are going to ratchet down the price on the heroes pack given the overall (apparent) hue and cry of negativity.

Probably not but we can hope.

 

And I think it should have been 'slew' not 'slayed'. (I wonder if I can get Beta access if I offer to proof read for them.)

First off, it was never promised that you would get in on day 1.

Second, it specifically said you would be phased in. It's not Cryptics fault you cant read.

Third, it's from the second weekend, not the third. You really need to work on that l2read thing...

 

UPDATE: Please note that this is not the final list and is a work-in-progress. We're still evaluating our Beta Weekend plans and making sure that everyone has a fair chance to join us in Neverwinter Beta.

By the way looking at that timetable we can probably kiss goodbye to a possible Q1 launch. Ahwell.
