    Yeah, did all of that still no invite. Played on my friend's account since he's flagged for closed beta anyway, game seems to be fine.
    It's always fun to play, but the motivation is severly damaged by months of not being able to do so due to no invites.

    Hey guys,

    does anyone have a spare friends key for the open beta from the preorder?

    I'd really like to take it off your hands :kiss:

    Depends on if one of my friends wants to join the band, will know today afternoon.
    Who's actually playing in the beta now, and when?

    If anyone has a spare friend key.... I'll give the game a shot :)
    It's a game I really wanted to try and being a loyal Blizzard fan for a decade (and spending a significant amount of money on HOTS), I am kinda pissed they never sent me an invite :(

    EDIT:

    Turns out there is a open beta for everyone on 4th to 9th? That's good.... I'll finally get a chance to try it but... still... if anyone has an extra key and they don't have any friends that need one, I'll take it and we can play together :D

    Afaik, it's 3rd and 4th for preorder, and 5th to 9th for everybody. Might be wrong though, somehow I've got the weird impression somebody meant it starts on Monday (today, 2nd).

    If you didn't pre-order the game by April 29th, you wont be able to join the early access today. You'll have to wait until the 4th.

    Wait, now I'm a bit uncertain...

    AMERICAS
    preorder 2nd - 3rd, open beta 4th - 9th

    EUROPE
    preorder 3rd - 4th, open beta 5th - 9th


    Is that correct? I thought it would be 3rd - 9th EVERYWHERE, the way I wrote it down above would mean the Americas would get an extra day of beta, besides of course having the best timed release (talking about day time of unlock).

    Ended up buying a key on ebay for £4. I've been waiting to play this for a while!

    I'm in and the game is awesome. One question though. Does the SMAA Ultra in this cause blur?

    Anyways, so glad I bought my ROG Swift 279Q before this released.

    Somebody's mad. I sure hope it's like those games because I've put many, many hours into both.

    Oh, interesting, they screwed over people outside of the US now? I couldn't play yesterday...

    One thing I have to say, Blizzard has the most sh*tty timing politics when it comes to hours of anything. They're basically saying 'f*ck you' to everybody outside of the Americas.

    Just checked, never before did I see May 2nd anywhere before. My friend that has been in the closed beta also has not seen or read anything about that either.

    It was stated anywhere you could preorder it.

    I swear to you there never has been a word about the 2nd I've come across, and I've preordered as soon as it was possible. And like I said, I asked my friend, he hasn't seen it either.

    Both Amazon and Battle.net stated that preorders got early access. But maybe it's different for Europe.

    I swear I have never read about the 2nd before you guys mentioned it... I guess so too, because of the following links I was able to just now google up:

    http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/new-prod...ase-date-beta-price-editions-trailer-3636648/

    http://www.kitguru.net/gaming/jon-martindale/overwatch-open-beta-final-release-dates-leaked/

    http://translate.google.com/transla...192750/&hl=de&langpair=auto|en&tbb=1&ie=UTF-8


    Having to see the same **** every time is like a slap in the face, it's not like they couldn't let things launch simultaneously, or at least give Europe an extra day if they are not allowed to game at the same day as the Americas.
