As per the title, and similar to previous poll.... for users with a SE headstart key, how was your registration and game start... please note that this is NOT about server queues or about the special items for headstart where GOA have said they gave the emails a low priority, it's about getting your account activated to be able to play!

Thanks :)

how can being able to play have nowt to do with Queues? registering the codes was fine and smooth for many but most are queuing and THIS is affecting thier play.
This poll is about registration, not about queues, that is a different subject :twak:

It was very smooth for me. I did register a few hours after it was possible so I probably missed out the big crowd. It took just a few minutes to get a reply. Same with the ingame item code. When I logged in I could go to a mailbox and pick up the items. I was positively surprised how well it worked.

Well I was travelling to work when the registration came up, but around 9:30 BST I entered my code first time and got a mail within a couple of minutes :)

Duh.

Silly Jup, there arent 100 threads of 100+ posts each calling for the immediate execution of everyone associated with GOA - you figure it out ;)

Very smooth indeed minutes between registration and the keys being received.

No trouble for me. Only hiccup was remembering which email account I had used when originally registering :)

No real problems.
The email and links provided by email were not specific, and it was a bit confusing figuring out where to go to enter the codes.

It's annoying that I have to copy/paste the codes 1 piece at a time, instead of the whole code in one go.

I received the activation email quite quickly, within a minute or so, and was in the game straight after.

I got the strange email for the bonus items about 24 hours after, but given the history of GOA, I didn't panic at the strange message, and I received my 2 items via mail in game last night.

Open beta was a disaster (obviously). Was waiting on me SE keys from direct2drive. Got them, went to the WAR site and validated the keys. Received the mail minutes later and was playing five minutes later :D Smooth sailing so GOA actually paid attention to the mess they made and came through.

So yay Goa



Oops...did i say that last bit out loud ? :twak:

I registered headstart code ok, but made a mistake with item code. Got a 'fail' email, and resubmitted several times in last 24 hours - but no email, and now I am in game, no items in mail.

It was the same page as headstart validation for items I trust?

I had no problem with the activation it was almost instant. the only thing is the third key I got for the game exclusive item wont be accepted by the site.

Once I'd gotten over user error - very smooth. Pleasantly surprised would be the best way to describe my experiences :)

Decided to buy the game!

Got it from Direct2Drive as they had headstart keys left.

Unfortunately, I tried validating my key like 2 hours ago. Still nothing yet :(

Ignore what I just said...

I was a fool, used the wrong login name to try and activate an account.

After checking my other email address, I had an email from GOA saying it wasn't activated blah blah.

So I used my correct login for the correct email address, and in under a minute, bingo, I'm activated!

:D

I couldn't use my CB/OB account for some reason, so I had to make a new one. After that I encountered no problems at all.
