Unsurprisingly really, it was kind of a madhouse having everyone around the world all try and login to a certain website at 19:00 PDT yesterday, and of course there were issues. After repeated efforts, I had gotten a beta key code issued to me, however I was not able to login to the account management to add it to my account so I could try it out. Woke up a few times during the night trying to get a beta key for my husband and failed miserably. Tried to get into my square account, and still no dice. Was kinda tired when I got up this morning, and found that I could finally get into account site.. Yay! I inputted my key, and it said I was registered, so I logged out to see if I could get online.
I couldn’t.. it still said that I had to get registered.
Quite confused, I logged into my account and the key information I had inputted wasn’t showing up! /cry
I tried to re-add my code, and it said it was already in use… maybe it was slow in processing that I had registered? hmmm…
Then I thought I should try and see if they would allow me to now get a key code issued for my husbands account. In trying, it came up with a message saying he couldn’t apply because he already had one…
wait.. what?!?…. oh no!
Logged into his account and sure enough, he was registered… with my key code.. ACK! My computer had auto logged me into his account and in my exhaustion I didn’t notice. OK, no problem.. I’ll just see if I can get my key code re-issued…. no such luck, not only that, but they aren’t issuing any more key codes at the moment.
* Can’t apply for a key code because they aren’t accepting applications right now
* Can’t use my account to request one because it just resends the information for the one I was given
* Can’t use the key code I was given because its “In use”
* Can’t use my husbands account to request a key code, because it says he already has a registered account
Luckily.. my husband loves me and said I can use one of his spaces to make a character on his account until this all gets sorted out.. So its ok. Only 20 days till I can play for real anyway so I shouldn’t let it frustrate me too much. Least I can test things out on his account.
Sheesh.. what a morning.. and its just starting.. hehe.
I was able to login this morning for a few minutes before work, and created a Gridanian Plainsfolk Lalafell girl. Named her “Katia Ellia” as I don’t want to use the name I’ve had in mind now for two reasons. 1st – I can’t “name transfer” to my account if I’m playing on my husbands for the time being, and 2nd – I kind of want to have it be sorta brand new upon launch.
Liked the opening scene from Limsa Lominsa when I was in closed beta, but loved the opening scene from Gridania.. had a bit more humor and loved it! My husband is going to make a character in Ul’dah so we can watch the one from there as well.
Good luck all! Hope your adventure getting in, is far less eventful than mine..
