Phenomic has flung open the doors to the beta for upcoming card-based RTS game, BattleForge.
Game's live March 26, and for participating in the beta, you get a upgraded Firedancer card as reward. Can't say fairer than that.
Here's how. Go to the site, download the client, create an EA account (unless you already have one), let it patch, log in with EA account, create a character, play the game.
Easy as pie.
