By the time MMORPG get around to handing out keys, OB will be right around the corner.

What is taking so long guys? We know you have them.

It'll be random, usually is. The second the net gets a whiff of beta invites expect 20-30k players to enter almost instantly.

Expresso gave me a Hearthstone beta key.....I'm so happy :)

Id expect more.. Maybe even double the numbers of whom came instantly over a stretch of 15 minutes?

Aye as soon as some one posts a give out ink up on reddit I go there and see 40k+ people have been there already.  Crazy how popular this beta is.  

Keys are selling for $100 on ebay, games been top three streamed on twitch since it's released.  God help us on day one of release I can see another Error 37 coming our way.

Also if MMORPG do indeed have keys and are planning to give them out at some point I hope they don't do what many of the give-ways have done, i.e having you like them on facebook, twitter or do a handstand in a swimming pool full off jelly (jello for my american friends).  In the past MMORPG have just given out keys by having you click a link but I hope they restrict this to people who genuinely contribute and are active members of this site else they'll just get snapped up by bots (to sell on ebay) and people they'll never see again.

I'm afraid MMORPG will want new members from this givaway, that's why they do beta giveaways, to increase their footfall and increase their ad revenue. So no, it'll most likely be open to everyone and anyone...IF it ever happens.

I got my Hearthstone beta key directly through Blizzard...

 

Make sure you have your beta settings in the battle.net profiles set up if you haven't already, you never know when they might send you a beta key for something.

Its an obvious suggestion and im sure there will be some kicking themselves when they realise they have not ticked te box, however...

There are many players in closed beta and most of them got keys directly from battle.net, problem for the masses is so many people want into this beta if they don't get lucky in the randomised account draw they are unlikely to win a code as every offer gets swamped with bots.

Several websites got hacked when they announced giveaways and magically a similar number of keys appear on well known auction sites. There are also an estimated 50k+ (its an estimate touted on a few fan sites, no-one knows how many of course, it could be more or it could be less) bot accounts set up at battle.net for their code sendout, guess where those codes wind up?

Also many beta testers were given as buddy key they could give to their friends, no-one is certain if this was a mistaken second issue or not, but guess where those that weren't used to boost private youtube account revenues wound up?

The whole thing is a fiasco which is currently damaging the game as Blizzard lifted the NDA too early, now every streaming and video site is over saturated with gameplay videos. Blizzard had a good thing going, but they have failed to strike while the preverbial iron was hot. A lot of players are simply sick of the frustration of not being allowed to play what is, essentially a game in release state and every day they feel they are falling further behind the chosen few (no more wipes now before launch). Others have watched so much streamed footage they have had their fill of the game already and everyone now knows how wretched the booster and gold system is as we have gotten to watch players spend $50+ on packs and get nothing of any note.

They should have delayed the NDA and used this massive publicity properly, they have now waited a bit too long and will probably lose out because of it. Still, this game has incredible momentum.

I don't understand why MMORPG has keys if they aren't giving them out?

It is a boggle. Maybe they have instructions from blizzard on when to start that, or they are waiting for something else.

But what about us Lurkers who very rarely post on the forums? ):

i'm a long time lurker, and it seems like the keys will only be given out once they are ever more highly sought after

I can't seem to attract a key no matter what I enter. Guess I'lle have to wait it out and hope they enter OB soon :/.

Feel like trying Planetside 2? Get a headstart with the starter kit!

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS, I got a beta key invite from Blizzard. OOh yeah! Now I can try it. I guess Blizzard are sending out beta keys so you might want to check out your emails.
