I am a man of my word.

Arenanet sent me a nice well written email…


We are writing to you because you were recently invited to participate in our Beta Weekend Event.

We apologize because this invitation was sent to you in error. Our records indicate that you have registered a Guild Wars 2 Pre-Order key, which only grants you 1-day Headstart Access at launch, and not beta access.

Because this was our error, we granted one-time access to Pre-Order customers who had been invited to this Beta Weekend Event. However, moving forward, we wanted to let you know you will not be given access to future Beta Weekend Events.

If you wish to participate in the Beta Weekend Events, we encourage you to pre-purchase the game, either through our website or with a participating retailer.

If you pre-purchased Guild Wars 2 and are receiving this e-mail in error, please contact the Guild Wars 2 support team so we can rectify this situation.

For further information about Guild Wars 2 Pre-Purchase, visit our FAQ.

We look forward to seeing you in-game.

Here’s my response….

Hi there,

So basically you  told me, because I preordered the game not prepurchased, and that Arenanet messed up that I won’t be allowed into beta stuff. Now here’s the thing you were sold out of prepurchased stuff, you said to get into beta I had to pre-order, pre-purchase,  I did, then you sent me an invitation to your beta.

I know…I know…they don’t have to give me shit, but you know if I tell you something, if I promise you something by the gods, I will move heaven and earth to see it done. Arenanet you promised me something, and now your taking it back. I would of never pre-ordered the game if that was the case. I feel deceived, and lied too, and now on top of it you are telling me you made a mistake, and basically to go fuck myself.

Do you want my money? I don’t think you do, cause a reputable company would stand behind their word, mistake or not.  Come June, I’ll have a decision to make whether or not to buy your game, and how you treat me as a customer will help me whether I should or shouldn’t.

Right now since you told me to fuck off, I’m about to write you off. Why shouldn’t I?  What I saw of your games wasn’t that awesome, or groundbreaking..maybe you would like to show me that I am incorrect…that your game is worth playing.

Right now….There are plenty of companies that love my money…I think I’m going to tell you what you told me…go fuck yourself.

  1. To be fair, Tony Montana didn’t exactly keep his word either with Sosa. He didn’t kill that whistle-blower like he said he would.

    Aye its a bit of a sore one however I thought it was common knowledge the perks involved with the pre purchase over the pre order? Aka preorder didn’t get beta access *shrug*

  3. Yeah this wasn’t a big secret that pre-purchase was the key to the free beta weekends. Plenty of blog posts over it weeks before the actual BWE. And you still got in for day. Now I understand why it was so frikkin crowded. Out you slimy pre-order scum!!

      True, but they sent me an invite to the beta weekend. then they took it away.

      • Pitrelli Says:

        So it sounded like they let pre order people in the last event due to the mistake/rogue email but won’t let them in the next? If so I don’t see what the problem is. They made a mistake, let people in as a one off then reverted back to pre purchase only as originally intended.

  4. It sounds like your tears taste like sweet honey to these people. lol
