Too Early for Beat Cop

Galactic
  • 1

Yesterday morning, I logged in and cleared my daily quests like I always do. Today, when I logged in, I was able to claim the Frostpunk Soundtrack Key, but I was unable to claim the Beat Cop Game Key that should've been available yesterday. I'm assuming it is because the game key became available later in the day than I had logged in.

That has happened to me so many times. They never start these campaigns early, but quite late. It gives you less time to grab the first item, but they've done it over and over and I don't think they're going to change it now. I only check AWA that late if the vault is opening that day, because it's late where I live. Sorry you missed this game, the timing in this site is awful if you don't live in the Americas.

Time for change of date is based on UTC+0, so I'm not sure why the Americas are better suited for it. A lot of stuff I do is based on that, so it's just another thing on my list to check once it hits 8 PM for me (currently at least, until clocks change again and then it's 7 PM).  I'd think it'd be a bit more convenient for people in Oceanic areas like Japan, Australia or New Zealand where it would happen somewhat early and you could get it over with towards the start of your day.

The real solution is a LOTTERY. Click, and you get a random chance at winning the freebie. Maybe everybody gets 1 or 2 chances a day.

Was so surprised to see that the Frontpunk Soundtrack "keys" were already exhausted. How many were there to give away? A hundred?

Hey Alienware, like thanks for the freebies but if your marketing budget is so slim that you can only spare so few to give away, how about making it like a lottery instead?

Looks like my honest attempt to suggest a real solution made some keyboard warriors salty and downvote my post LOL.

Fact is, there aren't enough keys for all the Alienware Arena legitimate users. Random chance to get keys would make it more fair and simultaneously defang the mass bot nets that some filth are using to farm keys.

Your right it just happens that way, like the community event there was the free goodies giveaway but by the time I realized it all the keys were gone.   I mean at least they are giving away stuff, but yea its like there are always going to be limited quantities unfortunately, to bad there won't always be one for everyone but at least they have this latest promo pop up when you log in to notify you so you at least know to try to grab it.

I also had a problem. It didn't even show up on the website until today. I was on the site a lot yesterday and it never existed. It's already hard enough to grab a key when they launch normally but to only have access after the event has expired is a cruel joke lol...

I managed to get the Beat Cop key, but logged in at roughly the same time today to be told the Frostpunk Soundtrack Keys were all claimed. Didn't realise there was a limit on these...

Funny how thinks work, I missed beat cop but I got the Frostpunk Soundtrack.  I already have beat cop off a fanatical bundle probably for about a buck.

Also Tower57 I got that game that is comming up in a 4 games for a buck bundle on greenman gaming sometime in the last year.   And the This war of mine Final Cut I got for free a few months ago with a free promo they were doing.    But it's nice they do these cause another chance to get stuff, for free.
