Still curious as to where you go to pre-order for the UK, I mean they have French and German on their website but no English pre-order sites its like ?????

Or am I missing something

Hmm I was a bit confused to the reason they wouldn't have a pre-order option for the UK.

Its been like that right form the start - they offered pre-order bonuses to virtually every other major country except UK. Maybe there is a long standing grudge or something? Disgusting, really.

So, I suppose those of us that pre-ordered the game online are screwed?

How are you screwed? Most web-sites send you a confirmation order, so I would imagine that would work.

Or you could just screen shot the receipt you recieved from whatever online service you ordered from and send it to them, like a bunch of other people did. If you didn't get a receipt then that's your fault. :X

I copy and pasted a pic of my Amazon receipt, and sent them that.

Step 1 - Pre order at Amazon.
Step 2 - Screen cap the order page.
Step 3 - Send screen cap.
Step 4 - Cancel pre order.

Anyone can get in, now.

Do you know if using a steam receipt is fine or does it have to be one from the soe page?

Take a pic of the receipt with your cell phone camera then copy it to your pc then submit

That's what I did with my email receipt from steam. It's been a little over 24 hours. I got an email asking me to verify my email, but I think that was just due to me making an account, not the beta application. No mention of the beta. They really should have an automated email reply, so I at least we know we're on the "list" I wouldn't have bought it yesterday if I didn't think I would get in the beta!

What a bunch of horseshit.

I preordered at Gamestop. I don't need to save my receipt, its tied to my account, AND with Gamestop just switching over to the Power UP Rewards, My preorder isn't listed on that page, as it only shows preorders you made WITH the new card.

What kind of ass-backwards beta promotion is this?

Anyone who's done this have an ETA on how long it took to get approved and your beta code?

Please note that the above offer to get into beta only applies to NA players. Those outside of North America will not be guaranteed beta access by November 30 if they preorder.

Thats good information to know, thanks. Shame the writer of the original article didnt do a bit more research to include relevent information for people outside of their home continent!!

But I guess the NA players are more important, right?

SOE has done a poor job of communicating this to potential buyers, so Massively isn't entirely to blame. It'd be nice if they updated the entry though to reflect this important point though!

I'm sure they have thousands of requests they have to go through so it will take a while. Haven't received mine since I submitted it on the 8th.
