The invites started earlier today and are still being sent. It will take at least a few more hours to finish, and then tomorrow morning we'll see if there were any that bounced back and resend those, as well as email alerting people to them being invited. Inviting 100k takes a long time. :)


Cool, but have all accounts already been flagged in battle.net? (Since you can usually see the game in your account Before you ever get an email.)

So you doing how many an hour, should we just check at the top of each hour or is it just slowly rolling them out... /confused.

Those would most likely be Fansite groups, WoWhead admins like Ashelia, or People like Oxhorn.
I just want a D3 Beta Invite lol

Is this purely on when you started playing?

I thought I saw a post that said it will combine your start date and the day you signed up for the Annual Pass.Another question - you guys had to have seen the rush to sign up for the Pass once you announced it (we mainly signed up for Beta Access since there was nothing in Cataclysm to keep us playing) - how is it you all weren't prepared for a mass invite? You could have set a date to sign up until to get an automatic invite. I fear that this 1 Million + Pass holders are going to have to wait a long time before we see action in Pandaria....a long enough time to make us very agitated.

Anyways you can tell us what all you look for when you Invite?

Besides How old account is and when we purchased AP?


Annual Pass is a guaranteed entry, there is no consideration made beyond cumulative subscription time and when the Annual Pass was purchased.

beyond cumulative subscription time


Just clarifying for people.

Everyone is speculating their invites on when they "FIRST MADE THEIR ACCOUNT", as said above it is your ACCUMULATIVE subscription amount.

Meaning how many MONTHS you've paid for this game.

Thank you so much for communicating this, I think the silence is what made some of us a little uneasy.

Cheers!

Now that I won't be able to sleep tonight, I guess I can progress in Mass Effect until I either pass out, or I receive an invite.

but does getting D3 beta earlier effect our chance at THIS wave?
