    Yeah, my first email came about 10 minutes after my purchase... looks like the server gerbils are working hard!

    I just got the second email, an unused Serial Number showed up at my NCSoft Account Page and so forth. I applied it, it asked for subscription terms and all that jazz.

    The remaining mystery is that the second email didn't tell me what my release serial number is (it said to look on the website) but the website shows only the last four characters and the rest are X. So I guess I don't get to know my SSN.

    30 min after the order to the Deluxe edition I received 2 emails, and one stated to check my NCsoft account and it should have a serial code.

    Heading over that way next will update if serial is there and the account accepts it.

    Same here, waiting for the second email. In fact, at first I kept getting an error saying ncsoft was down for maintenence lol. Had to figure they were being bogged down.

    I received my second email which allowed me the option to go under game management and activate my preorder account. However, I have not done this as I am slightly concerned that activating the 'collector account' might somehow override my beta account with a character above level 32. As I am not in any hurry to activate as I already have weekend access going forward, I will wait a few days to make certain that there were not any issues with full beta accounts being messed up from preorder activation.

    I simply pre-ordered today to show my loyalty to Carbine and this awesome game.

    Update: The serial was there and after you activate it and input your billing you will be taken back to your account management page. Click Wildstar and you should see the version you purchased, and whatever else.

    For ex: My page says

    Deluxe activation 3/19
    Beta activation -----

    The serial number is internal at your NC Soft Account. Go to manage games and you will see any previous Beta access plus your new access, that you can activate.

    Yup, applied the sub info and it went through for me, although the manage game screen for Wildstar does not list a sub. At least I'm locked in now
    Good luck to everyone!

    I'm pleased to have waited & not attempted a transaction day one, hour one. I will be watching this thread.

    I wasn't so prudent and activated. I have two SSNs listed now one is "Beta" (with activation back in November) the other is "Collectors" with an activation date today.

    Since my login hasn't changed, it should still connect to my existing 32+ characters. But I guess I'll find out on Friday.

    I am not certain there is an actual 'issue' as much as anticipation and confusion with people not waiting for the email confirmation to move forward with activation or not going into game management to activate.

    I understand, I'm keeping my eyes open for issues if they do pan out to be singular or widespread. Just being cautious and informed shopper.

    In the game, not with my wallet.:sneaky:

    I am betting all will be perfectly fine Flinder. I am just being overly cautious with no valid reason for not activating, just being a bit anal as I have no need to activate right now. ;)

    Yep. No issue, just confusion. The Email kind of says it has the code but it doesn't. You have to log into your NC SOft Account, which you had to create to pre-order, after getting the second email.

    The sub piece has the same "wait for the second email" mechanic. Once I got the subs "fulfillment is complete" email the sub appeared on the billing page.

    The chief reason I elected to pre-order was because I thought it would allow me to reserve my character name before others were able to snag it. I have used my serial code on the website and am downloading the client, but I still don't see any information about name reservations. Does anyone else have any information on this?
