I got beta month ago, but after this thread decide to join contest to pass it to some good soul, but didn't win.

Anyway, this is how it works - anyone who gets key to giveaway must accept new members - to promote game. Happened to local site, where admin was pissed he couldn't give keys to his vip/customers member, must accept everyone. 1 day after announce a local fan site became international site with hundreds of "1 post" new members with some of them using google translate. Blizzard told him that they will give him 3 waves of keys, every wave per 1 week. 2nd wave he decide to give some keys for old members - and byebye from Blizzard. They didn't send him another batch, cause he didn't follow their rules about giveaway. Month after he got another 25 keys, but must accept everyone in competition, no matter if site is local fun site, if new member come from Mars or Moon.

Any kind of giveaway without requirements will be exploited

I always remember winning a giveaway once on this site and along with several others never receiving the prize. (It was something boring anyway). Just get a Blizzard account and opt in for betas. That is how I got a key to this beta. Don't rely on these type of websites to win anything lol.

Well... I just joined the community and was hoping to get a beta key, but then again, every pros have cons. Good Luck all anyway.

I would be willing to bet the "new folk" are regular users trying to get one over like the chump in that other thread boasting about selling the keys.

That Guild Wars 2 login screen knocked up my wife. Must be the second coming!

I am pretty sure someone has already put it out, but the rules to a hearthsstone beta giveaway is to let everyone single person have a chance, it must be random, if not u will not get the next batch of keys they send to you

Its not the problem of new players(new to the MMORPG site). This is what the givaways like that are all about to attract more ppl to the site. Nothing wrong here.

 

The problem is ppl who create multiple accounts to up their chances. Most of those ppl are leechers who later sell those keys on ebay. 

 

The only way to make such givaway "right" and more fair for "veterans" and fans of MMORPG site would be to divide the keys batch. For example, give away 100 keys to users with accounts older than 1 week(or at least before this givaway was announced). And other 100 to the rest. 

 

And everybody are happy. Well maybe not the leechers I was talkign about earlier, those who make multiple accounts just to make money out of it.

I think his point is that they are maybe not newcomers but same people with multiple accounts.

Yes it is good for a site to attract new people,i think the best way to do it is to have so many for users of say 3 months or more and so many for new comers.

If you don`t do it that way,you will often see new accounts leech off the entire set of Beta keys before someone legit gets off of work and had no chance to get a key.

Well I hope the game launches soon. Very soon.

I am fed up with my son, brother, wife and other family constantly taking up my computer to play with MY cards anyway.

Seriously the last 3 days, I got to play one hour, all the rest was taken up by everyone else in reach of my PC. I am even obliged to take hard copies of my decks as they change my winning decks all the time without asking even.

 

This thing is gonna be so hot, it will toast your machines.

 

Open it up Blizz.

We are actually doing quite a lot to ensure that users creating dupe accounts make as little impact as possible on the winners chosen. However, people with new accounts =/= dupers. There is huge interest in these giveaways and lots of people who don't regularly visit (or lurk) are creating accounts to enter. There's nothing wrong with this.

We take care of all that before we select our winners. Don't worry.
