Firefall "launch" works like a pyramid scheme.

Sign up here for an invite and I'll update this post, first come-first serve.  Key masters are in and will pass it forward, gate keepers are desperate souls that will do anything for a handout.

No, I'm not in yet.  First five signups get invited before me.

Once you receive an invite from this thread, post who gave you your invite and you'll be added to the keymaster list.  You're then required by e-law to invite three others before your debt to society is paid and you can be removed from the key master list.  Key masters can, of course, chose to stay on and share their wealth.

Key Masters:
Aganazer
TheAtomicKid
Thry
The Grue
Harkonis

Gate Keepers (need a key):
Isgrimnur
Booner
Rayze
Vidiot

"Launch" Announcement:
Spoiler for Hiden:
Quote
The game doesn't have a traditional "launch" like other games (esp paid games). Firefall is in a period of what we call "Exclusive Beta" which is based on a g-mail style invite system. There is no closed beta, open beta, launch phase as you find with other online games.

Much like Minecraft, we will be in beta stage for quite awhile (past December), even our store will be in "beta test" mode for those who would like to try it (not a requirement at all, and never will be. Firefall is F2P). During this time, we will be inviting more and more players, and release content slowly as we get beta feedback and improve the game and the store. We haven't wiped characters thus far, but we will probably do so prior to the open world test, and many times after that. Current testing shows us that we will probably need to wipe even after December if that's what it takes to make a great game. We're not rushing this, and we're working hand in hand with our beta testers. We will also announce when wipes are over during beta so people will know about it beforehand.

Unlike Minecraft, our exclusive beta is by invitation only. Either you are invited from our pool of forum members, or you are invited by a friend who has available invites and who is already in the beta test program.

At some point, there will be so many invited testers that the game might as well be considered "launched." By that point, we will drop the beta tag and drop the invite system, and have the game available for download by anyone. We don't have any planned date on this, and we don't expect to ever have one. Like G-mail, the beta tag will just disappear one day.

I didn't sign up at the site, as I wasn't aware that was part of this little love-in. I will attempt to recall to remedy that this evening.

Done.  Everyone make sure and sign up at the firefall forums which automatically puts your name in the hat for beta.  One of us has to get lucky to get this thing started.

Got an invite as well. Everything signed and sealed, but the download for the install is not functioning atm. Hunted around looking for how to invite other people, no love with that yet. (and still rebuilding/reinstalling my machine).

I'll update again here asap once I get it figured out.

Certainly! I just need to get my wife first, then I'll start at the top of the list. I'm not sure how often they will be giving out keys to the testers.

So I'm guessing the devs are either slow to let key masters send out their own invites or haven't given them that ability yet?

They've given some out to testers but it's random just like getting the initial invite.  Stay tuned it will happen.

I monitor my invites once a week on average... so far no invites to give. I hope it's not related to feedback, because I haven't been able to participate that much (yet).
