Though it sucks that people who have spent 6+ hours on the forum yesterday are getting the keys vs people like us who have other things we have to be doing, I do agree with one thing that is coming from this; a lottery ends with wasted keys. There are quite a few people who will submit to a beta lottery, get a key, then not play. It's happened oh-so many times in the past...
So, with the, "if you really want it" system, (Which I'm calling it from now on) they actually see who cares about the game and thus get to hand out the keys to those people accordingly. This will atleast increase their tester-to-player ratio and decrease all those wasted keys. There still will be wasted keys, (people redeem them and not play) but atleast this will greatly increase their player base...
So yeah, sucks that many of us aren't getting them, and I'm worried now that I won't be getting one (simply because I don't have time to post on the forums all day like some of the others) But I can atleast share my thoughts and concerns legitimately and hope that I may end up with one. :)
