For those of you that want to get into the Battlefront 2 beta now and don't wanna wait until it goes live on the 6th, there's an easy method. 

 

Via EA Support just use the link provided and choose your platform of preference, codes and promotions and then lost code. Just say that you didn't get a beta code, same goes for the recommended support option page. You should get an email shortly and it will work. Here's proof

This is outrageous. I can't believe I paid $0.01 to Best Buy for a beta code.

The starving children you could have fed with that dough will now die.

I haven't pre-ordered the game. I was sent a code within 2-3 minutes.
 
Thanks, OP!

So after doing that, just sit on the select support option page and wait for e-mail?

Thanks it works. I got one for xbox one and PS4 since I think my first request was accidentally set to xbox one after I logged in. I made a second request for the PS4 since that is what I own and they sent me both.

Got one, too. Took about an hour to install. Played for 20 minutes and uninstalled. 

 

Thanks, OP.

Does social engineering count as a deal?

I'd guess no. When I bought the pre-order pack from Best Buy I only got a code from the beta, and people in that thread said Best Buy would send the DLC codes when the game comes out. Since this is just EA support replacing your "lost" key, I don't see why it'd give you the DLC too.

It’s not social engineering. It’s filling out a few text boxes...

It's actually the definition of social engineering.  You're manipulating someone into performing an action or divulging information - ie, providing you with a beta code that you aren't entitled to.

 

Though I suppose you could go with the simpler "Does lying count as a deal?" if that makes you feel better.

 

(not judging, but let's just call it what it is)

If anyone wants a code, I have a spare:

MS8A-92ZZ-JLII-GIRP

 

I think it's for Playstation? Amazon gave it to me and it didn't work for my Xbox so they gave me a different one. Enjoy!

By that definition, YMMV deals that requires overriding like coupon or discount after pricematching or on clearance price when it shouldn't be allowed are also social engineering.

That doesn't disprove the point at all, lol

 

Social engineering is the practice of manipulating a person into doing something or providing information (usually confidential information, like passwords, etc).  So if, say... You should only get the discount OR the pricematch, but you either try to coerce the cashier into doing both or trick them in some way, yes, that would be social engineering.

 

Submitting a form saying "Woe is me, for I hath lost my beta key! Please help!" when you never had a beta key to begin with is very much the same, because you are manipulating the person working that form by deliberately misleading them.

 

Again, I'm not judging - You do you, booboo.  But saying it isn't something that it is seems silly.  Just own it.

Not sure I would call it social engineering.  You aren't tricking someone into doing something.

 

Gaming the system maybe.

 

Honestly don't see the big deal either way.  It is a beta (not a full game) and the more testers likely the better results.  

 

Probably not any more 'shady' then the glitch or whatever that allowed me to buy a code for both consoles for a buck and change on Best Buys website.

> lost my code (lie)

Trick
noun
1.
a cunning or skillful act or scheme intended to deceive or outwit someone.
synonyms: ploy, ruse, scheme


Not really cunning or skillful so you're right, it's not a trick.

I might not be a fungi, but with some time, I'll grow on you!

I didn't see the screen shots before.  I guess you are lying to someone.  I assumed it was a automated system and not a chat.

I'm just saying using that definition, social engineering deals have been long existed and been posted here for many many times.

They are going to have a public beta on Oct 6 anyway, it's certainly not big deal to them to give out 1 day or 2 earlier.

Definitely not as shady as those selling the beta code on ebay.
