    Shame on you ONEPLUS team as you people are doing nothing about people who are selling Invites which are suppose to be awarded to loyal fans like us. You people did nothing about fake registration for Invite system till is was so late and now you people are doing nothing about all those blackmarket sales of your Invites.

    I hope ONEPLUS itself is not selling invites in black to earn more money.

    What do you think people? Is ONEPLUS itself selling invites to earn more money?
    Is slow roll-out of INVITES is their strategy to sale Invites?

    I don't think so. If there is one thing I learned from oneplus is that they are at least honest about whats going on

    The only invites that can be sold are physical invites. OP put a stop to selling Codes on emailed invites. What else can they do to shut whiner's like you up?

    As long as there is high demand for invites, there will be a sale of them.

    It is unavoidable unless Oneplus ties invites to a certain Email address. In that case, only the original person can order it.

    Would you consider it wrong to sell a house? And even if they are selling invites, you don't have to buy one, you could wait patiently like the majority of us

    You say shame on OnePlus?

    I say shame on people who buy the invites.

    It's still going to be cheaper than buying a flag ship. Maybe if they are more available, then people stop buying them ;)

    If I get a spare invite, I'll be selling it for cash.

    Get your money ready!

    less supply & more demand drives prices up ... business 101

    All this will stop once invites (and OPT) are available abundantly..

    I think its upto us the fans to have some self respect and respect for other. According to oneplus each and every email id is a loyal fan. Its upto us to make an ethical use of it. And you cant blame the people selling the invites. Its upto you and me to wait for our invite and not buy one. The invites will eventually expire if you dont buy it in 24 hours. Cheers:)

    I don't think OP is entirely to blame.
    As @santoshnair said it's all about supply and demand. Especially true in this case. Supply cannot match demand here so people will do to great lengths to get what they want.
    No matter what you do you can't stop people from doing what they want - whether good or bad. As long as there is demand there will be supply.

    However, I am not a fan of the invite system. I understand that it helps OP but I wish there was a better solution. Oh well! We'll just have to wait.
