I am pretty pleased with the speed at wich Blizzard is sending out invites. I know a lot of people doesn't agree, and you see more thread being opened by ''all-nerd-rage'' specimens than anything else these days, but just think of the work accomplished in just a week ( yes, it was a week, not a year, like some people in the forums make it feel). They started slow to make sure the servers wouldn't blow up at the second a hundred ( or a thousand, for that matter) person get in. Server stable? Ok adress the most important bugs and consolidate the possible flaws. Day 6: Send 100, 00 invites, see if the servers survive. Yes? Well then, the next days they add 100,000 more invites. We are a little bit under 1,000,000 AP subscribers, they have invited 200,000, if everything go well, maybe we will all get our invites by tuesday or wednesday, but again, the servers MUST hold the pressure, a million people walking around is quite a bit and the number of servers is restrained, so they play safe and it'S perfectly fine to me, as when I get my invite, I want to connect and start giving feedback and participate to the developement and perfection of MoP, not wait 1 day, or a week or two to do that because they have to repair or do who-know-what to servers because too much people have blown them up.

I can barely when myself because I am too exited to get in, but I'll finish with this: Everything arrive in time for who can wait. Patience, people, patience :D*Is hoping to get her invite in this wave ^.^*

-Note that I have no other experience than my own computer, the info I gave are mostly out of my logic and the few info I gathered here and there about informatics. Plus I speak french usually, bad spelling and/or syntax can be taxed there :3

Seeing as 200K is nearly a quarter of em? If they do this every 2-3 days? They'll have it done by next weekend. I just hope I'm in this wave so my friends don't feel like they have to wait for me. XD


how do you know its a quarter of the AP holders? just curious.


Blue posters have repeatedly said around a million people or so bought the AP. Now its only a rough estimate so give or take some of that number. 200K is close to 250,000, which is 1/4 of a million.

Again, these are 'rough' numbers as we've not had a graph or anything put out, but going on what many a blue has said.
please let me get one this time around

Yeah..Now we need to go down to mcdonald’s and get us a wamburger and french cries.


OK I just choked on my iced tea laughing. One of those nights hahaha

*steals a french fry* mmmm..
Still Nothing :( Aug 2005 and still there no invite still
good luck all!
I know they said it takes a bit for invites to go out- but Blizz always says things take a while, even if they don't.

Does anyone know if these are going out relatively instantaneously or if it will really take a few hours to get the invite if you're on the list?P.S. I'm impressed by this response to the annual pass outcry. I'm sure this wasn't originally planned and it's being handled really well.
