    But that's basically it. Think an extra weedy car salesman who also happens to be a soccer hooligan with a cockney accent.

    Hrm, so some people are saying that they got some notification that they were eligible for the preview weekend, and others were saying that that's complete horseshit... What do you guys think? James Nichols posted that it was highly likely that there were still spots open for the 50,000 PW slots. I wonder why some people got a notification and others got nothin'.

    If you have a "closed beta" association, you'd probably not get it.

    How is the headstart going to work if you don't have the game itself early? Digital download?

    It's also entirely possible that the Open Beta Client will be used, as I imagine it will be more up to date than the Gold Copy on the box disc. Except for maybe some art assets.

    I can see the OB Client being patched to the Release Client.

    There is supposed to be some sort of "grace period" after Release where you've got time to enter your Box CD Key. If you don't do it in time, you acct gets locked.

    I doubt 50k people entered their code in the first 4 minutes like I did.

    Supposedly the notification is only visible for people who made new accounts.

    "Greetings!

    Since bringing the Account Center live it has come to our attention that some Target Pre-Order customers are encountering errors when attempting to register their keys.

    We have discovered that due to mis-printing the letter "Q" is displaying as an "O". Pre-Order keys will never contains "O" or "0". Be sure that in any scenario where there appears to be an O that you enter "Q" instead.

    We apologize for this inconvenience. Thank you!"

    It looks like the problem with target codes is rampant.

    I'm trying to think who could possibly dress up like a snotling. It'd have to be a 1 or 2 year old I think. No one else would be that short.

    So I think Mythic would be violating child-labor laws if they dressed up a bunch of toddlers like snotlings and had them deliver the game. :)

    Well my master account has ticked over and says its active, along with

    Enabled:
    Open Beta
    Head Start
    Preorder

    And I got my code in straight after every said it was open to keys. My Beta Center account though still has "Applied" sitting there, which sort of worries me as they might not clear Aussie players for it straight away. Not that thats an issue at the moment, since the torrent is sitting at 7 kb/s and is still 13 days off finishing.

    Confused?

    You aren't getting into Closed Beta. Once the preview weekend hits, you will be able to login with your new account that you just made. Your beta center WILL NOT change.

    You beta center account and your new mythic account are not linked.

    God damn this thread moves fast.

    Much like hearing about and seeing the backpack gyrocopter made me want to roll a dwarf, there was something that clinched goblin over blork for me: a video of one. The voice and animations had a great character to them. And they can do that "walk around in circles on the ground" dance Homer did in that one simpsons.

    If having alts in the order TSM guild will gimp leveling then keep them out, but if not I don't see why they shouldn't be in. And as far as I know the order and destro guilds will be on different servers so the "looking for order chars but they're on their destro mains kicking your ass" scenario won't happen.

    As for names, I like just plain "Candymancers" better than "Faerie Candymancers." And Tiefe Krahen is good too, and PA-themed and appropriate to the setting. I don't particularly care about guild names, but some people will want a badass-sounding name and Tiefe Krahen is that IMO.

    Voting on the guild name will be starting sometime this weekend. I was going to do it two days ago, but no one other than sushi submitted ideas. And anything sushi ever says is terrible. ;P

    You won't know if you're in the PW until later in the week, or next. They'll send out notifications.

    And, I doubt they're even at 50,000 yet.

    Hey folks, I just realized I needed a Master Account.

    I made one but I want to know is anyone able to download the client yet? I entered everything and it said activated but it did not send an email or anything about the client.

    EDIT: Do I need to link the Master Account and my Beta Center? How would I do that? =\

    You do not link the two.

    I imagine once the PW hits, the beta center will just close completely. Well, after their CB testers have a chance to enter info to get into the PW as well...
