Beta key woes

Unread post by Tre » Wed Sep 10, 2008 7:08 pm

So, I preordered the game from Amazon. No big deal, should get it the day it ships. With it, I of course received my beta key and head start stuffs, a day after ordering.

I setup the account, keyed in both codes, but only the head start was accepted. I then went to try it at Fileplanet. Same thing. The code is already in use. Not sure if that means someone else is using it or I got a bad one from Amazon.

Anyway, I go to the FAQs, send some e-mails and get 2 wonderful responses.
Hello,

At this time we do not have WAR e-mail support up as the game is still in beta.

For the latest news and updates on the WAR Beta, please visit http://www.warherald.com


Thank you,
WAR Beta Team
Mythic Entertainment
Ok, so I go to the site and read the support stuff there. I find another address and send another email. Here is the response.
Greetings,

Thank you for writing to Ea.com account services.

I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you, we request you write an e-mail to warbeta@mythic.ea.com in order to get assistance regarding your Beta Codes.

If there is anything else I can help you with please let me know

Sincerely,

EARep Raed
Player Relations
Electronic Arts.
Side note: I believe that email address is the one I sent the original too.

O, from this time forth my thoughts be bloody or be nothing worth. Also, rape and murder to the family if someone key-genned my code.

Oh, and if anyone knows how to turn off a touch pad on my laptop, I would love that info. Drives me crazy.

Edit: Nevermind, that was easy

You are dumb, and fucked.

Anyways, go to Target, they have a preorder code for a buck. Online sellers have been out of codes for a few months now, reading any war forum would tell you that. CE sold out in may? or march.

On the forums I visit, there are a large number of people from Amazon and even EBgames/gamestop who are having this problem. It is NOT mythics fault, it is totally the vendors selling the games. Some were giving collectors edition codes out for the normal verson too.

Well, I figured they Amazon did send me one via email. I kind of figured they wouldn't give the same code to multiple people.

As for Target, well, I stay away for personal, crazy bitch reasons.

And I was far from blaming Mythic.

I always wonder if anyone takes offense to swanea's sarcastic sense of humour :o

Tre I'm really sorry that it got messed up for you. At least you have your head start key and will be able to play soon.

We shall see. Guess I will find out on the 16th. That is, unless you have to use the beta code to download the game.

Good question... you have the head start codes though right?

well you were able to download the game via torrent w/o the beta codes, not sure if you still can do that but it'd be worth looking. When I DLd at fileplanet I had to enter in my open beta code.

Yeah, I was wondering if there was another place to find it. Fileplanet won't work.
