Are all 300,000 accounts flagged for beta, or are they being flagged throughout the night?


Flagging throughout the night and into tomorrow. It takes quite a bit of time to process each account. Even if it only took 1 second to flag each account it'd still take something like 55 hours to process? Not saying that's how long it'll be, but it puts it in perspective. :)


Seriously, thank you for all of your hard work. I feel bad for QQ'ing truly

Hmmm I wonder what We all should do first when we get our invites? I say everyone should make a mass amount of pandas and crash the beta servers within the first minute everyone is allowed in! ((Sarcasm of course; i would never truly suggest such a thing.)

I heard you like Bashiok so he put you in the beta so you can beta while you beta.

I'm pretty sure that is a small reason it takes a bit to process the accounts. They don't want a huge mass of people all logging in at the same exact time taxing the login servers and bogging down and lagging out starting and high populated areas such as org and stormwind.

So keen for my invite. I have a feeling my temp ban might of put me down the list a bit though.

I am laughing on the inside at the person who said during yesterdays 100,000 invites that "The next big wave like this will happen next month" and when people trying to tell him he was way wrong his come back some something along the lines of "Blizzard can't handle that many people or the servers will just crash. Wait and see, no more invites will go out for awhile after this 100,000k get in".

Not only have more invites gone out, but they DOUBLED the number of invites just one day after that person said that, lol. So much for you knowing how Blizzards servers work.

I wonder what tomorrow will bring? 300,000 during the course of tomorrow? After inviting 300,000 in two days, I am fine with them taking a *short* break during the weekend and then restart the invite process on Monday. Of course, I am still hoping I am one of the 200,000 people they picked today :D
