    Thanks for posting this! I don't do Twitter or FB, so wouldn't have known otherwise. Last official word I saw was on 7/8 from Gina here on the forums.

    Will continue to hang tight, but I think it understandable for players to start to wonder a bit, considering this is the first time, iirc, that the rollout was spread out over such a long time. When I read "sometime in July," I read it to mean that at some point in July, they'd distribute them to all players in a close span of time, as for previous rewards. Not, we'll start sending out in waves to players throughout the entire month.

    So, I think it was fair to get clarification on this from ZOS. But, now we know that they're still going out. Hopefully, when they're all done, they'll let us know, so that then we'll know to contact them via support if we didn't get an email.

    This is not the first time when the exact period of giving away some reward is vague. But it is the first time (as far as I remember) when the same reward to different players is given at different times. Usually this vague timing simply means that it is too early to tell the day or week, because it can change in the future. Still usually once the reward is given to some accounts, it is also given to all other qualified accounts within the day. So when it doesn't happen, of course players start to think that they have missed their reward (not that such bugs are uncommon here).

    "During the month of July" is not in the least bit vague.
    Just like in any other article when the rewards were given to everyone at one time (#3). I suggest you actually read what is already written, at least by those who you answer to.

    You can keep incrementing your counter until the end of time but that won't change the fact that "during the month of July" means "during the month of July". It really is that simple.

    Keep checking my email, but still no pet for me yet. Still have a couple weeks to go, but it's hard to be patient when I see other players in game sporting their new pet. :D

    I just got mine yesterday as well. They are still coming out.

    Hi, guys. I just got my code. So, sooner or later you will all get yours. I mean the giveaway definitely works.

    Just got my code today July 17. Thanks!

    I grumbled earlier in this thread. I still think that ZOS should have sent these out to current players first. Something simple, like sort the long list based upon most recent login to the game. I do not think this would be hard for ZOS to do, and everyone who logged in sometime last month would have gotten their code in the first wave of emails.

    As I mentioned quite a few posts up, I got my pet no problems well within the advertised timeframe.

    After some time now to evaluate their 'promotional e-mails' that I signed up for, I am pleased. I have found their few e-mails to be completely appropriate and not at all spammy in frequency. New crown store items out for the upcoming month, crown sale in progress. I concerned about abuse/spam but I think they are doing fine in that regard. I'm sure ZoS is aware that I can always turn off e-mail notifications if it gets too spammy but so far I'm perfectly happy with how they are managing e-mails. Good job, ZoS. :)

    I never received any email, either the pet code or the announcements. I have checked my junk every day and not there.

    Edit: I just logged in as usual but it wouldn't let me. I then logged in through steam (which is linked) and the settings have been reset. I'm wondering now if other people were having the same issue where they were logging directly into the website account and not their steam linked account?
