Jagex is giving a chance for all SDC members to access 8Realms with a VIP code. The game will go live tomorrow around 2pm GMT, and you can check it out. The special code gives you special access and £3 worth of gems to use in-game.

Great stuff. Your code will be 8RVIPACCESS. All being well, everything should go live tomorrow at around 2pm and hopefully we won’t have any technical glitches. That code gives the player £3 worth of gems to use in game as well.

How generous of them! The code is dumb though. “GUESS WHAT THE SECRET CODE IS?”,“IT'S 'SECRET CODE'!”.

Thanks... I guess. But is this really something that Jagex is giving us? I'm pretty sure everyone who played beta is going to get this code. See the following email I got:

http://ebm.email.jagex.com/c/tag/hBO16uJB8aRrfB8euvuNeBSv1vc/doc.html?t_params=REMOVE%3Drm-0bwjktj7bftprs8au7u1aqq5sbrkmhv%2540email.jagex.com

Added code tags so you can see its legit.

We have a special access code just for Stellar Dawn Central chaps so if you’d like to be involved, let me know and I will give you the details. I probably won’t get your reply until Monday morning but we can sort it out then.


How disingenuous.

Well, it might not be the same, but the code itself doesn't give me any confidence... Also, according to that email, it says 5 pounds of gems... ???

Obviously they weren't being sincere. I would be surprise if any of us actually play this game.

I'm debating posting this to the OF. But of course I know it's a special offer and would be bad for the people here. Still debating it though...

Hey chaps,

The code you have is just for SDC guys. There are a number of codes that we will release to various parties (as you would expect) but I was reliably informed that this one is just for you. Now, by the time of the launch I have no doubt that codes will be flying around left right and centre, as is always the case, but this one should be just yours.

At the end of the day we wanted to make sure we spoke to you about it, gave you your own code and then hoped that you would come along and play! Who needs Skyrim anyway (I can't play as my new pc has to go back to the company due to not switching on after I unpacked it)? :verymad:

For those who have played a previous version - A lot has changed. The game now doesn't end. You may finish the game first but that won't necessarily mean you will be number 1 on the leaderboard. Loads of balancing has taken place...oh so much stuff. Come along and play! :D

You do realise that makes me not want to play, I was actually contemplating it now I can access it via my Galaxy S2. My Nokia Classic didn't make things as seamless as this mobile does. Anyway the game ending was a massive positive for me, I'm guessing this means the JCredits will be used in a similar way as they are on WoL and not in the exciting way suggested in an early blog?

Let me clarify - It doesn't end when the first person to reach the final age builds their wonder like before. So, others who may be behind can still get to the end of the game. It will end at some point but not just when somebody makes it there before you. :)

Does it have any benefits over the codes I can get from my email or from the Facebook account?

I'm guessing you've decided on a fixed timescale then, which is either fixed from the start or from when the first final wonder is built?

Something exciting is coming! The 8Realms website is currently unavailable, but stay tuned for updates.

Not that I'm aware of, it will probably be decided on a server by server basis

This SDC special key doesn't even unlock the VIP flag...
Better use twitter, facebook or email keys.
