    Anyone got these yet?

    Not recieved anything other than my order confirmation email. Check my account with em and the unlock codes section is blank.

    Anyone managed to get their SE codes from EA?

    I have ordered last Tuesday and no codes so far, just the confirmation email.
    Same holds true for a friend of mine.

    BTW the EA site sucks bad.

    I would imagine many people on FH used the EA store site to preorder, so someone kindly let us know as soon as you receive your keys.

    The open beta won't start until the 6'th right? Guess we'll have the codes by then...

    I ordered my copy on the 21st, nothing received yet. My download wont be ready until the 6th so i guess the codes will be sent around then...i think thats the norm for everyone that has ordered from EA

    That's getting me a little worried, I will raise a ticket to ask them see what they'll have to say since competing merchants have already released OB codes.

    Epic fail!

    I have logged a ticket with EA support:

    [polite bla]
    As you may know the offer is advertised with Open Beta access, which is due to start at the end of this week. Most competing merchants (D2D, retailers) have already sent out the Open Beta codes, and some of them also the Early Release and bonus items codes.

    So my questions are:
    1. Why haven't we received anything from the EA store so far (for example:
    Open Beta Code)?
    2. When can we expect our beta codes?
    An expedite answer is appreciated. And failure to do so may result in us cancelling the orders.

    EA's reply:

    Thank you for contacting Electronic Arts.

    The code you have provided to us is valid and unused please register

    To register for the Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 Beta program please input
    the registration code you have received by logging in on the Red Alert 3
    Beta Website EA - Red Alert 3 Beta.

    After my next reply, he comes around and says:

    "Thank you for contacting Electronic Arts.

    I apologize for inconvenience cause to you so far. Please ignore my previous email.

    When you pre-order Warhammer Online Collector's edition you will receive your Beta code via e-mail within 3-10 days. You have successfully placed your order and would soon receive the codes. We appreciate your patience.

    If there is anything else we may do to assist you please let us know."

    All good, except I/we didn't order "Collector's Edition".....

    My question to you numpties is why are you ordering from EASTORE when it is almost £10 more expensive?

    I ordered from D2D and recieved my codes the next day very early morningish and i paid less.

    From what i can see D2D are still doing the offer so why not go with them and save yourself all the aggro?
  12. Moondiva

    Moondiva Fledgling Freddie

    Stuff it then, next they will be telling us we havent got access to the headstart, thx for the info Negura. Soooo, they believe we have all ordered the ce lol? It does state that you have placed an order, ive been able to access my order details, it does exist...

    My EA ticket assured me I would have my key emailed to me before beta (raised ticket yesterday).
  14. Moondiva

    Moondiva Fledgling Freddie

    Good news, thx Earl. Just the confusion getting to me lol. My understanding is that my dig download is on the 6th so ill be ready on the 7th, and when the dl becomes available so will the key unlock be also.

    D2D would not even take my order, always failing for some reason. There's another saga with their support ...

    There support was brilliant for me when i ordered my copy i thought i would email their support about when i should expect a beta key and they got back to me within an hour telling me to expect my key within a matter of hours.

    Hey presto it was with me around 8amish next day :)

    EA Store codes

    Your concern regarding the lack of codes from the EA Store is understandable. However, please bear in mind though that different retailers plan and manage the distribution of keys according to their procedures; one retailer may very well send out codes earlier than another.

    We recognize that waiting for codes is becoming increasingly stressful as we approach Open Beta and so have made enquiries to EA about this. I'll get back if I receive an update on the subject.

    Why not download the client now from GOA or better still the FreddysHouse torrent so it's ready in plenty of time. All you really need from EA are your codes.
  21. Negura`

    Negura` Fledgling Freddie

    Thank you Magnus and thumbs up to GOA for standing by our side on this. Given that EA store seems to be distributing all the codes closer to the OB start date than other merchants, a determined answer to when they keys will actually be distributed is to be commended.
    Looking forward to your further updates on the matter.

    Thx Magnus, yeah im going to download the client. I have a wedding togo on the 6th, and it would mean hassle to have to pop home at 5pm to start the dl :)

    As you may have noticed, EA Store UK are now offering Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning at £34.99 instead of £39.99. We are aware that you have currently pre-ordered at a higher price – but don’t worry you will be charged at £34.99.

    For more information on Warhammer Online please visit the website: Warhammer Online : Age of Reckoning

    So the price reduction is their way to soften the blow?

    Hey, no we cant provide the codes. But hey, you remember we saved you a fiver dont you?

    Garaen One of Freddy's beloved

    This question is probably very obvious if i did some reading but if i order from the EA Store or i can download the game from them and they e-mail me the codes etc but do they ever send out a hard copy of the game/box with its manual?
  26. Iceforge

    Iceforge Can't get enough of FH

    Now I feel hurt... I didn't get an email about a fiver off :(
  27. Iceforge

    Iceforge Can't get enough of FH

    EA does NOT send oyu a hard copy of the game box

    And I thinK d2d doesn't either...

    Sort of in the name... selling DIRECTly to(2) your hardDRIVE...

    A mate of mine orderd from the EA site 15 days ago, he just got the beta and headstart codes.
  29. Iceforge

    Iceforge Can't get enough of FH

    Great news :)

    Not gotten mine, nor the WAAGH fiver off mail yet, but I also just purchased the 29th (totally missed that it was coming so soon actually, having tried to avoid the hype to be easy on myself) so I guess if they are send out in order, then I should expect to get the mails tomorrow or the day after :)

    Thanks for the update. At least they started delivering the codes.
