Can anyone confirm if they have received an official cbt2 key/invite? By Official I mean from blackdesertonline.com/Daum? Or are they just letting other sites ect. hand them out currently?

I thought that they had. This was on the website:

 If you are lucky enough to have received a key from us or our media partners you can now redeem it at the key redemption page.

Yes, they did send out official keys. You probably were not lucky enough.

See i think that is BS. I set up 5 e-mail accounts my bros 2 and 1 from a friend, none of them got any e mail from Daum..

 

Is there any 1 that can confirm that they did get mail with invatation? what is the point of application page when u dont even invite ppl that do apply :S

I hope this game does not turn out to be cash grab, but they sure seems like thats their main objective this moment.

You do understand percentages yes...and just how many people probably applied directly to Daum for a key?

Like saying I bought 50 lottery tickets and didn't win....

So do we receive the keys through email or is it in the account page on BDO website?

Do we automatically get them if we have the Conquerors package?

When I go to the account page it has a download link but it is in red instead of black and says 'Download will be available from 16.02.2016'.

So guessing I have to wait to download the client and play on the 16th?

Greymatter I'm having the same issue as you. The CBT2 download button is there on my account page, but when I click it I'm told I need to wait until 16.02.2016 as well. 

Edit: Yeah I guess we just have to wait until the 16th.

Those with Conqueror's pack won't get a key cause we don't need one. We'll automatically be eligible to download and play.

Yeah but where are the ppl who got invites?? Give me screenshot of that mail that some 1 got from BD official?

I think they want to sell more pre orders this way but at the end they will hurt them self, im waiting to test game on my new graphics card before i buy the game. Im sure many other ppl are wondering the same thing can their pcs run game good. If u look at pretty much every other game there is period where game is open to every 1 to test, i just dont get it why did they make it so hard to get a key :S

The down load isn't open for anyone until 16 February. The link will work in a few days.

Well they dont send out keys them self, and make it hard to get just so more ppl pre order thats what i meant by greedy...

But yeah i dont mind paying for ingame shop costumes and stuff, i just wanted to test the damn game.. hope they dont have OP potions in their CS

The wording seemed like they had been sent out, but I've yet to see ONE person who has received one...

Do you want me to keep going? Pretty much every game that is made by company that knows what their doing.

If u expect ppl to pay u 100 Euros pack, make sure they try the freaking game before.

A few things that you are wrong about here:

1. Open beta is primarily for stress testing and advertising. Not a 'try before you buy' scheme. That would actually be the most stupid business decision to have beta for that because if people don't like it, they won't buy it, rather than them buying it and then discovering they don't like it.

2. The game has been out for a year in Korea and a few months in Russia and Japan. They don't really need stress tests.

3. The base game is 30 euros (probably roughly the same in dollars) compared to 60-100 dollars for most AAA titles because you have to pay for the season pack.

4. Those that did spend 50 or 100 dollars have access to the beta.

Yes please do (and congrats for stating Activision, EA and Ubisoft are companies that know what they are doing lmao).  The majority of games do not have 'open' beta's.  Just like the majority of games don't have demo's.  The majority of games howeveer 'do have' beta's for those that purchased the game ahead of release.

As Obosi stated, if they did this, they would probably sell half the amount they do.  Though I think they should do personally, games would start going up in quality like they used to be 15+ years ago instead of the dross we get now, with half the completed (buggy) game sold extra as 'season passes' and 'DLC'.

Well depends how u look at it.. i got 2 friends that wont even bother with black desert cuz they dont know if their system can handle it, instead the will stick to blade and soul.

It said in rec.req. hd 7770 card , last beta i had that card and shit fps,when i open map i was getting to 10 fps. I bought new card and wanted to test it now, if i didnt pay for this cbt key i wouldnt play the game my self before testing it out.

Call it whatever u want see those links its called open to all or open beta, whatever it is every 1 got to test it out.

Mate, none of those links are doing open beta so that you can test your system requirements...

Back in the day there were companies that had hundreds of actual legit games testers who would be paid to test every mechanic. Find every bug. Check every wall for clipping etc.

Then companies realised that they could save a whole heap of money by getting the public to do the testing for free instead.
Only the majority of the public are shit games testers and don't report faults. But that doesn't matter because you can just patch it after release.

This is why Ubisoft games like Assassin's creed release buggy as hell.
