A very helpful admin helped me here and I wanted to share my story with others so they are not taken advantage of like I was. I was excited to play the beta and signed up everywhere for a key. One site I did, and I was burned. I am not going to post the name so a fellow site member does not go there by mistake by clicking on any link I provide but, they guaranteed a code to play the game on their site. After being directed to disable my adblocker, I received a .pdf from them via email. The .pdf crashed my OS upon opening it and resulted with me having to perform a system recovery and clean sweep of my entire drive. I have the error and scan reports from this showing that the direct cause was tracked back to the .pdf I opened.
So, I have no way of knowing exactly if this site maliciously attacked me, something went innocently awry, or what transpired beyond my OS being corrupted from it. I would advise everyone looking for an invite to only stick with sponsored sites or sites you know to be reliable. ZAM I trust so I am sharing my story to maybe save someone else from repeating my mistake. Happy gaming everyone :)
