Im interested in neverwinter also, and liked that they added the beta access as a lifer perk. I have not seen a key come in via mail, and i went looking again this morning after getting the mass email about the founder packs. So... where is my key?

Spending about $200 in items and no life sub...that's a recipe for disaster...heard some other MMOs going with that same business plan (ie SWTOR) and look where they're now..even F2P has deserted them. On the other hand ..EVE is agreat success. However, dont think NWN will be ever be an EVE online...won't touch it with a pole for what it looks like another money sinkhole...just my IMO

If you actually checked the Neverwinter forums, you'd know that the first wave of Beta will primarily be the people buying these packs, Lifers get in on the Second wave of Beta invites.

Exactly. We have another month to go to get our beta invite. So either pay $60 or $200 to get beta access next week with a few benefits or wait till March where there will be two beta weekends. There might be more closed beta weekend tests, but that is the schedule for now.

The spider mount looks cool but I am not going to pay 200$USD for it. I am sure there many people how will. If they had somekind of a Lifetime like STO I would think about it but just access to beta, not me.

Closed betas ere rarely 24/7. STO's 2009 beta ran a couple of 2 to 4 hour sessions (they grew from 2 to 4 as the closed beta progressed), one on Thursday - followed by another on Saturday - and they usually had the client ready for you to download the day before a session. STO beta didn't really go 24/7 until the open beta hit.

Just saying.

You cannot compare it to SWTOR, for one, that game has the crapest F2P model I've seen in a long while. Also, why would they give a life sub for a game that doesn't have subs? Personally I like the looks of the offers they have for Neverwinter, I'm seriously considering picking one up, but would like to try the game first.

Yeah exactly, a lot of people seem to have strange views of what constitutes a closed beta period for MMOs.
