Since there seems to be a major misunderstanding. This is NOT a general testing invite. The key is for an upcoming beta WEEKEND. It will last from Friday Evening until Sunday Evening. It will probably not be this upcoming weekend, it is more likely to be Thanksgiving weekend. We suspect this because an SWTOR forum mod said as much.You will be allowed to download the client earlier in the week, so for instance, IF it we're this upcoming weekend, they would start allowing people to download it Tuesday. (Tomorrow) We know this because it has been the same routine for the last few beta weekends. If you don't believe my information is accurate...http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=600760Bam, straight from the Nerf's mouth. They wouldn't invite 100's of thousands of people via external promotions like this, on top of the Million+ people who will automatically be getting in because they registered on the site before 11/11/11. For general testing. This is a Stress test, and while I would love to be able to play for a week or more, it isn't going to happen.
I got invited a week before the big beta testing. When I got the invite I had to confirm it and it took them 24 hours to upgrade my account to be able to download the client. You might have to wait for BioWare to upgrade your account to be able to download the client from them.
will they send me an email when that happens? i did notice in the faq:
I've beta tested TOR for about 3 months and while I can't give any specifics due to the NDA I can say that I've canceled my pre-order after testing the game

This game is going to be amazing! I've played since the beginning of Star Wars: Galaxies, seen every movie, played every single Star Wars: Battlefront, been a huge fan of the Knights of the Old Republic games (one of my favorite RPG series), and plan on getting this game. Star Wars is an awesome thing in my life, I love it.
Thanks for the BETA key.:3
Need Diablo 3 Keys but thanks ZAM !
The Beta starts this weekend guys. Have patience.
So I followed all the steps, how do I download the client and actually play?They will send you an email that says how to download the client and get access to the beta tester forums
30GB? Not available in my region during launch*? Now that I think about it, I don't know why I signed up for this. It's like this too when ZAM offered free Rift beta keys, my reaction was almost Pavlovian.I doubt I will be able to overcome my internal WoW fanboi-ism, but ah well, if 4.3 and/or MoP failed to meet my expectations, at least I'll have something to defect to.Here's to hoping that ZAM also gives out free Tera beta keys in the future!*Blizzard is also like this, not allowing me to sign up for the annual pass. Why won't these companies take my money**?**yes, I'm aware they have their reasons. Just venting.
im a huge starwars fan but the game looks meh...
I already have mine! I hope everyone takes the opportunity to get involved in this! It looks great!
Meuh, the site to redeem the key given is down for maintenance atm. :<
