Warhammer Rats

Warhammer Online, the beta to die for, has been killing the beta accounts for the overly chatty among us (read: NDA OFFENDERS). Richard Duffek, of Mythic:

Yesterday we removed several more people from the Beta for NDA violations. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, however secure you THINK the location you’re spilling your guts about Beta is, trust me, it isn’t. There’s always someone there who will turn you in for the slightest chance of getting into beta. And you know, from our point of view, that’s a great thing. Our numbers stay the same, one out, one in.

So if you get into the Beta, please keep in mind, it’s not only us that is out there scouring the web for NDA violations, it’s everyone else who isn’t in as well.

I’m not turning rat for a “slightest chance” to get into WO beta, but if that chance was 100%, I’d turn any one of you in and sleep with a shiv under my pillow.

  1. But I think that’s exactly the implication.

    Turn in an NDA violator, get Beta ticket, profit.

    Ready the shivs.

  2. I guess the idea is that people are only going to want to talk about Warhammer with other people who’re interested in the game — people who are probably interested in playing the beta. I’d like to hope that people were talking about it with their friends, though, and that friends wouldn’t turn each other in simply to play a game Beta – but hey, perhaps I’m naive 😉

  3. Wow, this is pretty interesting. I wonder how bad they are getting pummeled with email about possible violations.

    Its got to be crazy too trying to figure out who people are and how to link them to actual beta accounts. Tough job I would imagine.
