Seriously what the *&^%? 5 weeks and no key.... these contests are a joke.....
Here we go week 6! good luck everyone.Gratz to the people who won and I'm sorry to say that I feel the way the system chooses the winners is not fair (it's just my perspective. I'm not flaming it or anything). Here is why. The way the system chooses people is random and there is no doubt about, but some alphabetical letters are more dominant than the other because of that you would see a lot of people names starting with (A) will win more than someone that starts with (W) or (T) or any other nondominant letters since there are lesser entries starting with those letters, but you might wonder how would that be unfair?. I'll explain. For instance, week 5 winners list shows that 45 people starting with the letter (A) have won while the (W) only 13 and the (T) only 20. What that tells me is, the system is choosing more people from the dominant letters than the others which isn't fair. The way it should pick winners is to find the which letter of the alphabet has the least entries then pick random winners from them. After that, look for the next letter with lesser entries and pick random winners and so on because if we distribute 750 keys on 26 letters then there should be at least 28 winners from each letter and of course there will be around 20 more keys that can't be distributed equally. Therefore, those ones can be chosen randomly from the list of entries. Again I'm not trying to spark a war in here, it's just my perspective.
I am one of the happy winners of this week's giveaway :))))).I would like to thank dearly the wowhead team and wish good luck to everyone on this one !
OMG! Thank you so much WOWHEAD, I didn't expect to find an e-mail from you guys this morning. You made my month! Thank you, thank you, thank you :D
After listening to "Everybody Hurts" by R.E.M 15 times in a row, I have decided this is the last one for me. Ole Beta might not be in the cards this go round.
GG to anyone who WON a key :) i hope u wont sell any and use it ... cuz this hurts my heart i swear :*( i will move to some not so poor country and find a job and have beta every exp :X !
At this point, I'm stuck with 1 of 3 choices; 1) Continue to lie to myself and believe that I'll win a key from the contest. 2) Say "f$&k it" and just wait for Legion to release. 3) Purchase a beta key from someone who won a key from this weeks contest or one of prior contests and then placed it on eBay.Honestly, option 3 is looking more and more likely.
good luck for all
good luck :)
man. been doing this for 6 dumb weeks now. getting annoyed, exhausted, and upset from doing this every week lol. but I'm def deciding to go with Panthrax's idea and just wait. I mean I paid for the pre- xpac as soon as it came out. but I'm not the only one. oh well.
Ok let's go again! Good luck everyone and may the odds be forever in your favour!
Ty for the Beta-Key wowhead :-)
Just a suggestion.Can you please faster the giveaway rate? At this rate last winners will find out they only have a week to test in beta, whisch will be like a cruel joke. I am assuming the remaining time cycle of beta is about a month now. This means on 7th giveaway there will be only two weeks of testing would be present assuming it will take at least a day to download the beta on twelve days people cant test things if they are not playing every day every hour.
How many users does this god damn site have that I haven't won a key yet. This is a joke.Also you "winners" commenting that you won, no one cares. Take your gloat elsewhere.Nice abuse of power threat against my so called "toxic" comment, that is not directly speaking to anyone, insulting anyone, calling out an individual person, using foul language, etc. Yep really toxic. But no you can go on your power trip there bud.
another week, another chance for a beta key ... GL all :D
I'm among those who also haven't won a key yet, but I'm not among those who have a fit of rage or accuse Wowhead of "cheating". Yes, I would love to try out the Beta during my vacation, but somehow demanding that Wowhead (or any other site) provide that for me is juvenile and acting like a spoiled brat. Just accept that random == random, I'm sure most of us who have grinded rare items in the game are very familiar with that way of thinking.Also PTR was just updated with the pre-patch, which by most accounts will go live in a month. Try out your new spec and talents there if the live version is so terrible, or simply take time off until the expansion is released. Sorry for my rant, but it's very frustrating to see these responses every week.
I feel like if I don't win this week, I'm just not meant to play the beta.
When will the beta finish? How many more weeks will this competition to be going for ?
