I pre-ordered the three ships before the news article was posted up saying everyone who did pre-order can now play CBT starting 14-04-15, but where is the invite code? or do I just try to log in with the account that I pre-ordered on? How do I download the SEA client then? I Can't find the news article anymore, was it redacted?

This is in the: World of Warships Pre-Order Packages Now Available message down the bottom

*****

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pre-order packages can be purchased by the player for their account. Closed Beta testers will have access to their purchased packages immediately. When the Open Beta commences, the packages will be credited to players once again.

Please note that buying a pre-order package does not grant a player access to the Closed Beta. All the packages are available at the Premium shop and will be available for a limited time from 9-11 April.

The article was removed then. I saw one stating that everyone who pre-ordered could now play CBT starting 14-04-15. Now I can't find that news article, it's been deleted.

It seems there was a WG proofreading error................Go figure.  Who would have expected something like that from WG.

Yeah, this issue was discussed among Chinese speakers here:

 

http://forum.worldofwarships.asia/index.php?/topic/3948-關於預購組合包贈送邀請碼這個事件希望官方能妥善處理好/

 

Many Chinese-speaking players are upset because WG put up a news post saying that people who preorder the ships get a CBT access code, but then they removed the post without an explanation. I'm not sure what's going on.

Might have been one of those accidentally on purpose type mistakes for a quick cash injection, followed by "oops, one of our interns made a booboo".

 

Wasn't just this server, the "mistake" appears to have been made on others as well.

If this is the case I will be upset. At least tally the numbers before announcing the giveaway only to later decide that everyone who pre-orders is too much for the servers to handle.

OK folks - just to stop the speculation - the issue has been passed up the food chain...

The only response we have so far is "wait" - so that's all anyone has to pass back to you.....

They've updated the news on the NA portal. Pre-order bundles which include one or all of the three premium ships will contain cbt access. even the ASIA premium shop now displays cbt access as apart of the bundles. From what i understand we should get access tomorrow!! :P

I'm confused if you bought the item before the CBT access was announced do you still get CBT access? do they email the code to you?

they're not very specific on the information on how the access will be granted. at a guess, i would say it will appear in your wargaming account either via a message or a download link

EU also listing CBT access with pre-orders.

Looks kind of official to me, but I'm just a pleb so will wait and see if there's a sudden increase in numbers tomorrow I guess.

EU also has a link in the portal to 'redeem invite code'.

we may have to wait for the asian portal to be updated?

Try checking your e-mails first.

 

There will usually be a purchase confirmation e-mail, maybe the codes are there. Or maybe its already automatic so try looking at the portal.  

Still wondering whether or not I should open my wallet again after already purchasing something for World of Tanks 

 

 

edit:

 

Commanders!

Having considered your numerous requests, the World of Warships team decided to grant CBT access to those who purchased selected pre-order packages. Owners of The Sims, Yubari and Gremyashchiy can now take part in Closed Beta testing starting April, 14. Players who have ordered the packages before the indicated date will be given CBT access.

Action Stations!

 

The bolded part...does this mean what I think it means?  Damn it almost went to open my wallet. Or can I still buy now and get access?

 

 

EDIT 2

I just checked the pre-order and you will get access if you buy now.
