    Default VIP vs. Preordered CE

    What is the difference between a VIP and someone who has ordered the Collector's Edition?

    How does one become a VIP? Spend more than 60+ dollars, luck, invite?

    Is there an advantage to this title?

    VIP codes are unrelated to pre orders. They have to do with people who have been guaranteed access to the Beta phases. There's no need for a VIP code if you have pre ordered.

    VIP just means that you have received a VIP beta key and have applied it to your account. The ONLY thing it entitles you to is to get into all of the remaining beta events.

    You can get one from one of any number of contests and drawings... there is a thread around here somewhere with them listed. Good luck!

    There isn't much of a difference VIP beta keys were given either through contests, givaways or pure dumb luck and you get access to all beta events,

    Pre-Order keys are also VIP keys. But Pre-Order keys will guarantee you access at Head Start and the first 30 days of gameplay starting March 1st.
    VIP keys are just for beta testing, not the actual game once it's released.

    VIP keys were just beta keys that guaranteed entry into all events, they have nothing to do with retail/release of the game, or have any special perks within beta itself over anyone who has pre-ordered.

    Don't forget to support Dual Targeting in SWTOR and Prime Online.
    We didn't get it here, but perhaps we can help make the next games into what they should be.

    VIP is a code that gets you into all the BETA events up until the game is release. CE is Collectors Edition of the actual game when its released and when the game is release VIP will be useless then.

    Unless someone can explain it better to this guy feel free, its the only thing I can of atm.

    VIP relates to Beta Codes prior to Pre Order

    in otherwards you had

    Regular Beta Codes = Put you in a random drawing to be picked for each beta event......
    VIP Beta Codes = You are able to do all beta events.

    Preorder Codes = Grants you VIP Beta as well as Headstart.

    Vip is just a special key that allow you to be in all betas 100 % thats all.. pre-order is the same but with game it self and bonus items in game.

    this is how i looks in code list in your account information.

    Exclamation No difference.

    As far as I can tell Trion isn't showing favortism or giving kudos to those that preordered from them directly. VIP is a code, if you preorder from Trion directly, supposedly you are auto flagged for VIP access. VIP means you are allowed follow up access to all future beta events, where as a normal Beta Key guarantees you beta access only to that particle beta event. So VIP is much better if you want to play in all the beta events, where a normal beta key is cool if you just want to dabble or have a looksie at what Rift has to offer.

    But so far preordering Rift from Trion doesn't seem to mean you sare instantly upgraded to VIP status, it seems to be a process and one that can take a few days.
