The following is a public service announcement for everyone not yet in Alpha. We’ve begun to receive reports about 3rd party websites claiming to sell Dreadnought Alpha keys. These websites are fraudulent. Unfortunately, some of you have already been tricked into buying an already used or fake key, so we wanted to take a minute to communicate the risks of patronizing with these websites.
First of all, anyone buying Alpha keys is actually violating our End User License Agreement; moreover, you’re putting your personal information at risk. These websites pretend to have an abundance of keys for sale, when generally they’ve only managed to get their hands on one or two, which they then sell as many times as they can before being shut down. They make some money from these fraudulent sales, and then they sell the personal information they’ve been able to gather before they get shut down. Then they do it all over again. Jerk maneuver, right?
We know how excited you are to play Dreadnought. We’re excited too! That said, for your own good we ask you to be patient while waiting for your Alpha or Beta key. Attempting to skip the process and buy your key from a 3rd party will likely end in regret, and that’s not a feeling we want you to associate with your Dreadnought experience. This kind of stuff is going to happen more and more this year as the hype train picks up speed. Be wary, and if you find 3rd party services attempting to sell you an Alpha or Beta key, please let us know by emailing Community@6ft.com.
