I have to ask... How does this affect you?

You say it "makes no sense".. How so?

What I got from your post(s) is this; you want access to beta, and you want pre-order beta so you can get in on it... Right? Fine, but why complain about the way they are doing it? Are you complaining because you failed to secure a key in the few contests?

Besides, whos to say they wont do preorder beta? Maybe they don't want to do pre-order beta because they gave most of the slots away with the CO subs... But that doesn't mean that what they are doing "makes no sense"...

IMO the pre-order subs was a great idea. I would have done it. It was marketing genius. I bought the 6-month for 2 reasons. First because I liked playing CO, and second, because if the STO beta. Some people just wanted the STO beta, and some couldn't care less, but I say to each their own to that.
