    Mentioned this already in one of the other threads, but I got a code already and the NCSoft account site is telling me that it's expired. Anyone else get anything yet?

    Sorry Zap if I overstepped my bounds with that other thread. I looked on the forum and didn't see anything about this so I posted a link to the site discussing it and updated the thread when I found the giveaway on Wildstar. :(

    There are reportedly 40,000 keys available - the Bad Gateway errors seem to be mostly fixed on my couple of quick checks so pile on in!

    No bounds overstepped :) Just want to keep everything consolidated once a news post is made!

    I went to site at about 9:11 or 12 and entered my email, it requested I do it again, was very slow site (overloaded obviously), and then it said I would possibly receive an email with a beta key within 24 hours. Nothing in my email yet.

    I might have been too slow. I've seen beta key handouts like this before and we got to be quick to get a beta key usually.

    Reports are filtering through that there are issues with the keys - Carbine are investigating.

    For those getting Bad Gateway, this means that the site is likely exceeding the available bandwidth so your session is being dropped. Either wait a few then try again or keep hammering their server until you get a valid session!

    Never heard of Godankey before - looks like a nice service, and I guess this'll help stress test their product :)

    Campaign is likely to have been shut down for repairs. I'd expect it back up relatively shortly (possibly with a changed URL). The news post will remain valid as Carbine will no doubt change the direct link on their blog page if they do need to take that step.

    Hopefully those of us who got one of these keys already won't have to fight the F5 warriors for a shot at a new, working key.

    Ok good- glad to hear.

    Same experience here Gardavil -but at 9am. The way I am looking at all these contests is if I do not get into beta, I will simply have the extra thrill and excitement on launch day with a finished product all ready for play! :)

    You guys cracked the site like an egg.

    Also, I hope there's some way for them to track ip and not let someone use 100 different emails to get 100 different keys. Personally, I'm not a dick to enter more than one, but...those people are out there.

    Looks like Carbine loaded their Godankey campaign with dud keys! (source)

    Seems like the site is back up. P.S. I got a warning for my posts on this thread, but am not sure what I did wrong.

    Issue is fixed. No need for anyone who has already applied to reapply (source). Go-go-go!
