Awen, don't take this personally (you're just doing your job), but all this crap of selling betas through the CO thing, the worthless contests that do nothing, this twitter thing...it is all just....silly and not really needed.

Preorder beta. Simple as that. Why not go that route? It is the best option for this type of game. Cryptic isn't against selling beta keys or handing them out in chat to who can google the fastest, "what was the name of the dancer who got ate by a rancor?" and now just obsessive twitter action.

What is the problem with a preorder beta.

StarDock does this often and thrives on it. Why waste our time with this crap to just TRY and get into beta? Why waste your time? It makes no sense.
Because, this game is gonna be something different than other MMO's. one must understand that if Cryptic wants to sell beta keys they can do it any way they wish, the games i think personally are fun for people to get online and have a little competition with each other and to get to know one another. Im sure there are plenty of people who bought the 6 month or lifetime subscriptions who already know that they are accepted into closed beta. i think the way they did this beta test offer is one of the best, u get 2 games in one in a since, but all in all good job Awen on the contests that you are doing and everyone else who has taken part in the forums.
