    I know that Carbine have there reasons for not having buy in's with pre-orders to the beta but to see other people selling their keys on ebay just looks wrong. One reason Carbine gave is that they do not want people to burn out on the game too early, I played another MMO for 7 years before looking for something else and I think allot of people would be the same so I don't think a couple of months will make us lose interest in the game (if it is good).

    Can't believe they would do that... I feel the same sadness as you Jez007. Guess people are desperate for money... Anyone acquiring beta keys should feel lucky that they have one...

    Nah i dont think it's them being desperate, more like see the VAST RIDICULOUS OVERDRIVE OVERHYPE of this game and realize they could make a huge profit from it.
    And well some people dont care as much, they might have singed in for the beta at the beginning but now they might have lost interest.

    which means even less keys are going to wildstar addicts :cry:

    From what i can see they are not sellling they key itself but the friend key( the person they would invite)they still keep one for themselves.

    still they could've given it to us, out of the generosity of their hearts

    People are paying $300+ on ebay just for the beta key :S I'd rather spend my money on the actual game development... Also the internet if rife with fake keygens :( I really hope they bring out pre-orders soon to stop these shenanigans.

    Yeah, I want in beta as much as the next girl.. but 300 dollars for a temporary key and a character that's guaranteed to be wiped? Maybe it's just cause I'm poor, but I would rather bite my tongue and wait for release, and then spend the money on a collector's edition and a few month sub...

    Tbh if some werent scams and there wasnt any chance of getting banned i think i could actually do that xD
    That is the effect of overdrive overhype on flying motorcycles!!

    I mean this game is so overhyped on motorcycles that people havent even created a negative page about it in encyclopedia dramatica!

    You can always report stuff on Ebay when it's illegal (Which selling a beta key is illegal, regardless if it is a friend key or not.)
