    Maybe stop inviting the higher league players for a change!? I'm only gold and ive been a beta participant with over 60 hours of SC2 a week, and I haven't even gotten an invite. It said it was judged partly on how active your account was on SC2 recently. :/ Hope i get in this time.

    Are you more likely to be welcomed into beta if you play more often?

    I hope the numbers of people getting into beta increases dramatically because it's almost impossible to find new up to date videos of the beta game play so far.

    If you combined all the hours I work and eat per week, it still wouldn't add up to 60.
