@Noviere That's a good question.

Yeah, either their site isn't set up yet to accept these, or I'm blind. I'm not ruiling out either.

I'm not sure you even need a key atm to get in. I believe there's still plenty of spots and if you just register you get into the CB.

Played quite a bit last night. Got my mage to 18. The game is quite refreshing. Good storyline. Nice class system. FFXIV type system with base/class level.

They'll be adding player towns and such at some point too which I am excited for.

I typically don't like anime graphics in a game but when you have this game cranked up all the way it looks beautiful.

Hmm, I'll give it a go, I'm quite bored anyways.

Redemption Page has been fixed.

Servers are almost full, get your key now if you have not already gotten in.

1. They allowed Beta Testers to pre-load the client last week.
2. The forums have several in-game moderators already at work setting up connections and feedback
3. Their Closed Beta was scheduled to launch June 2nd and at 4 am on June 2nd (as I got ready for work) I was able to roll a character and get in-game.
4. The starting town was JAM-PACKED with players and yet it ran smooth as butter for me.

So far I am very impressed with how this closed Beta is running. The game engine seems very capable and the graphics are clean and good-looking.

I won't be able to actually PLAY until Monday (crazy work schedule) and am looking forward to really trying out the actual gameplay.

@Pingles

Aye, and even with the mob of players, enemies were still plentiful, and skill animations for a few abilities are beautiful.

The game, so far at least, isn't much of a grind either, which is great to me. My general lvl, warrior, and cleric is all lvl 8, and in a span of just an hour or so.

Tried it for a couple hours today. Didn't get out of the first area, but it's REALLY nice that you can switch any class.

You have a character level and your class level. Class level can't never be more than character level.

Ran nicely on my DM1z, doesn't look bad with the anime look.
That's all I can really say. Other then that it played like a typical MMO, just with the REALLY nice feature of being any class, like FFXI I guess.

Here's where you redeem your key. Their site is pretty bad about telling you this and I had to look on their forums to find it.

I hope that's not a sign of things to come from them....

EDIT to my above post.
This appears to be the same link from the Article.
Going to it before you are signed in to your Aeria account hides the Key Registration box at the bottom. Log in and then click on the link again to have it show.
I didn't see a noticeable way back to the registration page from their page after logging in.

Been playing this since yesterday, about level 12 so far. It has a lot of 'quality of life' stuff that's appreciated (Auction House, quest NPC finder, LFG / character profile tool, etc.

Very polished package, if you like cute graphics and being able to switch classes on the fly. It's not a 'next generation groundbreaking immersive-epic world MMO', but as a fun game I'm really liking it so far. They're testing CS pricing as well with 'fake money' that they're giving people everyday, so if you're planning on trying it out, be sure to look over the AP prices and put your 2c on the costs on the EE forum!
