    Look at it this way:
    you're still looking at the word "key" as the metal things you get 2 of when you buy a lock.
    the key immediately fits to the lock when you bought the lock

    If you look at it in the new way it kinda makes sense
    New keys to buildings are digital aka the creditcard like keys with a strip.
    Those keys still have to be activated.


    Say you applied for a job as a freelance security inspector with that big company..
    you got accepted and got a blank card together with your acceptance letter sent by mail.
    There's no starting date in the letter, so you call them and they tell you your card will be activated (and thereby give you access to the building) the moment the company needs your help.

    When you got accepted, your personel number (username/pass) was typed in the computer and combined with the card ID they sent through mail.
    Once they need you you get another letter telling you your card has been activated and thereby gives you door access. (Closed beta access)
    Well, that's kinda what's happening now :D

    This is not a physical key and lock, nor a company card. There is no advantage to giving out keys, which are unactivated, just to later send out an email prompting activation. I, and everyone else, understands how their systems works. We just don't understand WHY. Let's stay focused.

    actually you're forgetting that you now have forum access. The key has been activated for that process, so you already have a working ticket. Just not yet to the doors of the main building.

    In terms of the "let's stay focused", you asked for the logic behind handing out keys only to have them denied until chosen. I only tried to explain it with an example that does happen IRL..
    Not saying it's the best way to keep potential workers satisfied, but it's a known businessmodel

    You and me both, but since thus far we've been looked over, my hopes aren't that high for Phase 3. But who knows, maybe they'll surprise me though LOL

    fk this game and their invite system.
    Since they start promising Beta invites I raised a 4 aps BM on PWI and got rank8 on 2 chars and almost enough for a 3rd.
    This has been a joke from beginning when entire guilds were invited, ppl didn't even knew they got in...
    Yeah, they will wipe accounts before open beta, then again before the official launch.
    WHO CARES?
    You can't wipe people's brains. Game knowledge acquired in Close Beta phase will give the "chosen ones" such an advantage to every other nub ingame it won't even be funny.
    I don't want to start a game with a handicap because its managed in the most stupid way possible. Signed up for Beta testing when the site had 4 lines and a picture on it ... still wasn't invited.

    That's a bit true. The people had so much time in game that they got to make the guides about classes already, the good players all know eachother and we could have a dominating guild even from the start. Some players even got that "I've seen/done everything" feeling. It doesn't bother me that I'll be getting late in the game, but I wanted to be one of the pioneers of my class, maybe even have a chance to make the first bard guide *cries*. Now I'll feel like a newbie among alot of oldtimers even from the first day.

    I was just dissapointed because I am one of PWE oldest players. I came to this company when their first game PWI was still a week or two old baby. I signed up for FW fairly early and I didnt get in as well. Iv even done all their beta phases for their games except BOI didnt really wanna play that XD. So ya I am dissapointed as well I also like to do beta phases to help other players. Not to be a know it all but to warn them and help them out with quest or game knowledge...sigh oh well. It is what it is...right?

    Funny thing is, the Genesis expansion should be coming out around Feb/March as FW begins its 4th and final CBT Phase...

    oh great, there's probably more with that thought, really really hate the random invite system.

    Now we get (no offense @Kandycatz) some temp gamers toying around for a few weeks and leaving again while we early subscribers will probably be shadowing the forums for another 4.

    Dont get to excited theres really nothing new, theres a patch of lowby land with lots of plants and a bit of ice zone. The skills look nice, but still not as good as FW, Seekers visually are just a re-skinned assassin, mystics are a re-skinned psychic with a doofy run style =/

    So I'm kind of new to MMO's... Open Beta =/= release right? So theres gonna be a wipe before Phase 4, after phase 4, and after Open beta before the actual release of the game? 3 character wipes?

    PWE has never had an actual release. Open beta is the "release" Only two char wipes.... Phase 4 is a waste of time for everyone.

    I think phase4 will either be a stresstest for the server or to finalise mob vs questers ratio.
    And as everyone is a BETA TESTER, it's all part of the testing process you signed up for
