It was so nice to see so many keys get given to MMORPG, yet it was so sad to see almost all of them were gone within hours of release to sellers and horders who are now selling them on the black market for $40-$60 each.
Can i make a suggestion, If you decide to make any more beta keys for people, how about directly giving them to people on these forums, or just activate everyone who is registered on your forums for the beta ?
Myself and many others who have waited forever to play this game and get into the beta are getting more and more frustrated by the day. I could be playing Salem within 1h right now, but im not paying $50 to some low life scrub who stole / horded 1000 of your beta keys, its just so unfair.
Please do something about this, 2 days after your giveaway, your online numbers are still VERY LOW compared to the amount of keys were given out, also the numbers of online players are almost the same as before your wave of keys. Some communication, some apology or something to acknowledge the beta giveaway was a huge flop and almost no legit player got a key, except for the lucky few who were online / awake when the announcement happened.
It just seems like the same old story with most other mmorpgs, the legit followers are screwed over and over, why asshole's reap profit from stealing(Botting etc) all the keys from people who wish to play.(Because this is were it all starts on most games, and its your job paradox to stop things like this now at the source before it is out of control, if you fail to give out more keys, or accept more players into the beta, people will turn to the black market sellers for access, from here it can only get worse)
Yes this thread is made in rage of still not having a beta key. I really do feel like i deserve one. I just hope you either give out more keys DIRECTLY to players, or just open the servers already.(which will also kick these sellers in the balls as there hording will become worthless and hopefully not to many people purchased keys from them)
Free to play game eh ? Well for me at this moment in time, the only way i can play, is to pay, and its not even the development company who would get my money. Im sure this is not how you saw your game during beta.
