Pre-Order/Buy. Beta Key HOTS?

Posts: 1
So if you Buy HOTS in advance with blizzard officially you wont get a beta key? Might be a stupid question, but I don't see it offered anywhere so I am guessing that is the case I just wanted to make sure.

I think so. But I know for sure if you go to GameStop and pre-order Heart of The Swarm that you will receive a beta key. That's how I got mine :)

So we get penalised for buying direct from Blizzard? This is ridiculous. I was a loyal fan and ordered it within minutes of finding out it was available. Many people have beta keys that haven't even ordered the pre-sale version yet. It seems extremely unfair for us that ordered the upgrade direct from Blizzard to miss out. WTF

If you make a rush decision buying something there's always the potential to miss a better deal. Same case here.

^ That's really dumb... Blizzard should offer beta to those who purchase through them. Would be smart for blizzard to give beta with their pre-sale more money for them. :)

I just pre-ordered with Amazon and they sent me a beta key instantly. If you want you can even get the key and cancel the order afterwards lol. I'm gonna go through the the order myself though.

You must complete the purchase before they send you a key.

Is there a way to cancel blizzard preorder? I am quite far from pleased with that policy and will never buy a game directly from blizzard again let alone PRE buying anything from that company.
