The Heart of the Swarm beta is in full force. Over the next few weeks, players who have created a beta profile may be invited to participate in the multiplayer beta as well as players who pre-order the Heart of the Swarm from Battle.net. Additionally, influential members of the community and fan sites may be offering a variety of beta contests and giveaways. To help keep you up to date with all the beta giveaways that are currently taking place, we will be updating this thread to provide you with the latest information surrounding these promotions, so check back often!
Good luck, have fun, and be sure to let us know what you think about the Heart of the Swarm multiplayer beta!
Please Note: It can take up to two weeks for accounts to be flagged for the Heart of the Swarm beta after a contest or giveaway has concluded. If you are one of the lucky winners and over two weeks have passed since you were contacted, please get in touch with the contest organizer. Customer Service will be unable to assist with the distribution of beta access.

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.
If you combined all the hours I work and eat per week, it still wouldn't add up to 60.
My (optimistic) date predictions:
Sept 28 - Oct 12 - HotS beta expanded to more testers
Nov 1 - WoL season 4 ends, HotS beta phase one ends, will be inaccessible for several weeks
Nov 2 - WoL season 5 starts, HotS release date announced, social media hype site revealed
Nov 24 - HotS beta phase two begins, poss. open beta & server stress test
Dec 3 - HotS beta phase two ends
Dec 7 - Social media hype site concludes, TV ads run
Dec 10 - WoL season ends
Dec 11 - HotS released, new season begins across all ladders
