Hots Beta Open?

EDIT: It would seem there has been some sort of mix up with the old 1.5 beta clients being turned into Hots beta clients or something. You can download it, you just can't actually play it because your account doesn't have access to the hots beta. Sorry to get people's hopes up.

I recently found that on my account page it lists the Hots beta twice under my game accounts. However I do not have the option to post on the beta forum and I also haven't gotten an email to my account about being invited to the beta. Is this some sort of a bug that it's listed or has the beta become open and now anyone can join?

Check your spam filter. My email from Blizzard was in there. Just try downloading the beta from where it says it is in your profile. The beta is not open but participants are selected at random.

Not in my spam filter (I haven't checked my email lately so it could be so old that it has been deleted), but I can't post on the beta forum either which is a bit confusing. I'll actually try and download it here in the next few mins though.

Go to your email and search "Blizzard". All emails from Blizzard should be there from all folders (at least for gmail it is). I had to do a search to check for mine, so maybe it wasn't spam filter, but it didn't show up on my phone (my main way of checking email).

I'm having the exact same problem as you can't tell if i got in or this is some cruel joke by the blizzard staff.

So I downloaded it and it's icon is the same as the one for the 1.5 beta but when you play it, it says it's loading the Hots beta. But I can't log it because it says that I don't have a game account for that region. I think what happened is there is some sort of mix up with the old 1.5 patch beta and the hots beta.

Same here. The Beta has been added to both my accounts. I have downloaded the client, but when I attempt to login, I get the following error message:

Your account has no game accounts that can be used in this region. Are you using the correct client?

I literally put my theory as to why you can't log in to play in the quote you posted from me
