I figured that I had a snowball's chance in hell of ever getting into the ESO beta, until you guys opened up the contest to everyone. After signing up, a key was generated to my surprise and now I'm downloading the patcher!
Between RoS and ESO coming out soon to consume all my free time, I'm so stoked to finally get into one of these betas, and it's all because of Curse! Thanks again!

Gotta be honest, I'm pretty into MMOs and I had a similar experience. The art style in particular doesn't really draw you in, but beyond that the mechanics were just not as enjoyable in that format. I think it works better single player.
