As of this post, there are still about 4400 keys on this site:

You can probably snag one quick. Make an account, verify your email address, and go back to that page then click 'claim'

I'm still quite appaled at this process of the "Open Beta" where you have to run arround sites on the internet trying to grab a key.
What is even more appaling is that most of these sites only give access to these keys if you are a premium member of this site. So for people who are unlucky are left with only 2 options : Not participate or pay to somebody unrelated to be able to test the game for the people who make it and want to make money of it.
While i dont think Cryptic is gaining any monetary value from these sites, it casts a very bad light on Cryphic, even before their newest mmo has been officialy released.


In what perhaps is just as bad you are sent into the wilds of the internet AGAIN to download the Beta from some site you probably have never seen. Half of wich again want to to sign up to download with any meaningfull speed... unless you opt for the download "wich is probably not fast because we are offering it ourselves".
Paints Cryphic in a very good light again.
