Bioware’s The Old Republic Strikes Again!

Dont let the adventure end!

Tell us what you think!Thanks to an error at Bioware, everyone who had signed up to potentially be a Beta Tester for their upcoming “The Old Republic” received two emails this morning asking if they enjoyed testing the game and would they mind answering a short survey now they have “had a chance to experience their own saga”.

Dont let the adventure end!I, myself received these, so after two years of trying to get on the Beta Tester program and having numerous errors occur during the validation process, I finally thought that the problem had been fixed and I was finally being rewarded for my patience with a last minute Beta key!.

Alas, I was mistaken.

These were not the emails i was looking for…

In the official Twitter they issued an apology and a link to a page on the forums with the following statement:

Earlier today, two e-mails were sent to members of the Star

Wars: The Old Republic community. These e-mails were sent to a larger group than intended, and have caused some confusion in the community. We can confirm that these e-mails were from EA and BioWare and apologize for any confusion they have caused. Please note that receiving these e-mails does not affect your chances to be

invited to test the game. Thank you all for your understanding!


 Torwars and Massively were quick off the mark with articles going into some detail for confused and frantic wannabe testers scouring Google for something, anything to explain why the Beta key isn’t anywhere to be found.
I know it was a simple mistake, human error, but that doesn’t make the slap in the face any less painful.
Or disappointing..
Oh well, back to the waiting game then I guess.  I was going to force myself to wait a little longer anyway to ensure the worst of the bugs and exploits were fixed before I went near it (not to mention that access will probably be impossible the first few weeks anyway…).
Am I being sensible or am I simply kidding myself so I feel better? 😉
UPDATE: I received an official apology! (not as good as a Beta Key but I feel a little better!).

  1. Yeah, me too. I frantically went back through all my emails in case I’d accidentally just marked the email as read, but no.

    The department of miscommunication and cruel jokes was to blame yet again.

    1. It was really disappointing as I had spent so long trying for the beta test, that I have since changed computers and the validation process didn’t seem to like me and none of the workarounds seemed to work..
      I thought maybe they had solved it and given me a persistence/pity beta key! 😉
      Oh well, at least we aren’t alone!…
