    You can play right now by subscribing to fileplanet and downloading the client. Otherwise you cannot play right now. The stress test that is going on right now is only for people who purchase a subscription. People who don't want to pay for a subscription must wait until the free open beta session begins.

    Also note that people who pay to play in the current session will automatically get to play in the free session.

    woot. I got my key and the client is downloading. It only cost me $120.

    I sent an email to their support. They will probably send an autoreply in a few days.

    $15 * 8 charges because the system is overloaded. 7 of the charges will be refunded in time.

    AH...$15 isn't bad. These characters get wiped after the open beta, yes?

    The "total bytes downloaded" number in the FF download manager appears to be a signed 32 bit integer. It got to just over 2GB and then started counting up from -2GB
