And UbiSoft prevented me from participating. I signed up for the uru
Live beta on January 5 2003 (yes, 2003 - a year ago), never got the
invitation, never got the mass invitation, and Ubisoft wouldn't let
me register my CD key against the Uru Live product.

When I contacted customer support, the eventual answer was a flat
'you will not get an invite, wait for the live release' - which of
course never happened.
