twitter alpha key problem... a message to the devs

LegionCM

Organize contests or something, this lacks ingenuity. Besides I almost died of a heart attack just by the TwitterBot message. Felt more like torture...

Some ideas to take a look into:

- Fan Art competition; could be a story, painting ,art design, best meme for example.

- Quiz: where the top winners can get keys.

- Voice Acting contest.

- A puzzle, solving will unlock a key.

​

There are so many better ways, to do this...

Agreed, as I stated above we will have multiple ways that we're going to be giving out Alpha keys between now and Closed Beta.

Appreciate you understanding the potential problem with the botting my man

my the luckiest man win the giveaways!

Yeah, I used to be the Community Manager for H1Z1, we ran a surprise and delight campaign on Twitter by sending out keys every hour. Quickly learned my lesson with that one.

Great news! My concern is about the randomized of the keys. We can see TONS of players getting the keys to the Alpha and they don't even care about helping you guys with feedback or breacking the NDA. We have a lot of people trying to play the game, for sure, but those people are here to help with the test too. Stay tune for the pre order!

We currently have a very dedicated group in our forums giving great and constructive feedback. I agree not everyone who we invite in will take the extra step and provide us feedback in the forums but they are providing us a huge amount of feedback by them simply playing the game and interacting with our systems. Anecdotal forum feedback is just one vector of the value we get out of having players in the game. We collect a lot of hard data on how players engage with the game.

listen and i mean this from the bottom of my heart. don't. if you want to have a way to give back to the people of the game randomly dropping keys on twitter is not the way.

dropping a keys this way can easily be botted by someone, if you are looking for a way to do giveaway do it through a retweet system or some otherway cause just randomly dropping a key with give a unfair advantage.

We will be running new ways to give out Alpha Keys outside of the random drawings. Surprise and Delight ways of getting keys to people is just one tactic of many that we will be implementing between now and Closed Beta. I understand your concerns about keys being botted.
