Well saw this in Massively Free Realms Launch. So chances are there may be something special for those that tested when we log in on Tuesday. I haven't seen this confirmed anywhere else, but hey it'd be nice right?

Pex did post in a thread asking about it that there would be an in-game item. No idea what it would be, hopefully something neat like a t-shirt or some such. :)`

Interesting picture for that article... wonder if that robe exists in game!

I think it does. I saw Referee Ruby wearing something like it during the party on Sunday.

I would love to have a robe like that. A beta t-shirt sounds fun though.

Yeah then we can say "I was a Beta Tester and All I Got Was..." I kid really, It'd be cool to get an item in recognition of the testing. Most games don't do that at all!

Wow, I guess I've been spoiled in my beta testing experience..!
I've been in games that not only gave you a discounted membership and a free gift at launch, but keep giving out anniversary beta gifts every year.

o_O What games are those? I'm now gunna follow you around betas just to find the games that actually recognize that if you actually beta test a game you do some work so it's not just 'playing the game for free before launch' =P (Lord of the Rings Online was the only one I was in that offered discounted membership.. Too bad I burned out on it during the beta and never played the live game..)

Sadly I don't think following me around will help, hehe.
Before this one, I only got into betas through my (now-ex) boyfriend >.>

Now that's pretty sweet. Hmmm.... looks like I just need to make friends in beta places.

I know, bad pun.

lol, it sounds like one of my bad jokes, so I guess complaining would really be making fun of myself xD

And we're all loopy today, waiting on them to open up the servers so we can race in and get our names before someone steals them xD

lol though with our names, it would be karmic if anyone steals them. Then they get to be a portable warp stone hehe.

ROFL - Steal the name and regret it almost immediately.. It's like getting a new cell phone and ending up with someone's old number that still gets tons of random calls -_- (I get calls from someone who only speaks Korean to this day.. And I've had my cell phone number for over 2 years.)

Here's part of the e-mail I got:
In appreciation of your participation during the Beta phase, you will be granted an exclusive Beta reward for your new character - a virtual military hat! Log in to Free Realms in order to redeem it!

So, I got the same e-mail and my new character does not appear to have the item. Think I should contact customer service?

I didn't even get the email! :(
Maybe they think I was a worthless beta tester.

I think it's just supposed to be "sometime today". No idea how you redeem items in-game though, heh.

In the e-mail it does say 'redeem', so chances are we'll be able to get it through the same panel that we claim TCG rewards (one of the options after opening the cash shop).

Yeah, but it also seemed like "virtual military hat" was supposed to be a link and it wasn't...

It's possible, but it also could have just been a highlighting for emphasis thing. It's hard to say.

So, was anyone able to get their hat? I still haven't been able to, not sure why exactly... Course, it's not like it's a pet or anything. LOL

EDIT: Here's an excerpt from a customer service response I got earlier this evening -

If you've recently received the email saying you would receive an exclusive in-game item for helping out during our Beta process you're on the right track! We haven't yet given these out to our testers and are planning on doing so during the next couple days. Make sure that you use the same user name as you used during beta and the military Free Realms hat will be given to your account. I can't exactly be sure how you will receive it, but check out your claim tab in-game (the part where you can enter promotional codes and such) through clicking the Station Cash icon on your tool bar.


They also said that more people will be getting the e-mail, not all have been sent out yet.
