Will I still recieve an email if......?

Was wondering if I would still receive an email for keys if I got a key from someone else? I want one of my good friends to play with me but I'm not sure if activating someone's extra key will prevent me from receiving my own email?

and i would imagin yes, klei is running a database for emails that have applied for beta testing and when you first start dst they want a email from you aswell.

this email is not used for account verification but instead to compare the emails with the list of applicants. so this means if a email matches they wont send out a key to this e-mail address?

 

i'm not entirely sure on this but what other purpose would the dst first start email address have if not for comparing it with the database of applicants for the beta. it really sucks for me because i got only 1 key from the dev cast while other people received 2 keys via email and also from later dev casts.

Most likely they would, Klei knows that if you'd get a key, you'd still give it to someone (like a friend)

Since I've got a key, I want to wait patiently for 2 more to give to my friends.

yes, thats true. they mentioned the "keys for friends" phase or however it was spelled, which will happen when the 80k applicants have received thair keys. so it could be that applicants who already play get the e-mail anyway but at a much lower priority then people who dont have thair email in the database yet.

 

maybe someone from klei could clarify what the first start email is used for.

Yes, a key given by someone else has nothing to do with the keys given to you by the Klei beta email. Trust me.

'If you signed up for Beta, you will get a key.'  Is what they said on the chat for the stream, when asked this. So, I assume, yes.
