So I heard that anyone that got an Alpha account will get any update/expansions free. When I found that out it kinda made me sad that I'd have to get a beta account. But a friend of mine gave me a gift of minecraft key that he said he bought before december 20th. I just registered it now and I am absolutely LOVING the game. My question though is that would my Account be considered and Alpha or Beta account? and is there anyway to check?

Register or log in to remove.

There is no current way to check, but if he bought it before Dec 10th, then it will definitely be an alpha account. Congratulations. ^^

It would be a nice thing for there to be written somewhere when looking at your profile to see what era your account was purchased at.

I think Bwasonne hit the 1 instead of the 2. Alpha accounts where sold up until the 20th December last year
Venit, quessit, induravit.

If you have any questions feel free to drop me a PM, it's what I'm here for. :)

Lol that would be cool. I can't wait for more development on the game, having tons of fun already. What would really make me happy though would be to have minecraft on steam.
