Thank you for the update! <3 I still haven't gotten mine, but to know that this big of a wave is going out is very nice news! I am eager and excited to play the beta when I do get my code. ^-^

If you have been around for that long, you should know by now, blizzard has never used "Seniority". I have been around since the start and have never got a beta invite. So i decided to just sign up for the AP to get one lol.


They have said that they are prioritizing by cumulative subscription time.


They said older accounts have a higher chance of getting in, not prioritizing. Just because you have a higher chance doesn't mean you WILL get in.

what about people who dont have an annual pass do I just wait for next expansion's beta? Active since Vanilla and have played 3 accounts. Pretty sure that puts me above someone with an AP whos only played for a few months. Oh well missed TBC, Wrath, and Cata betas not holding my breath for an invite here either.

Threads moving quick, but I had a question. Roughly how long will it take for all the invites to go out? I don't want to spend the next day or so checking my email and Battle.Net account every five minutes.

Awesome, glad to finally see a blue shed light on this. And since it says in the process of sending invites I guess that means theres still more to come other than the handful from earlier today? Or have all 100k already been sent.

Ok, so the people that say they are in but have not signed up for the AP (or just signed up recently) are trolling? Just wanted a confirmation on this, because I have seen posts saying otherwise.


If someone is in the beta it is because:

-They're press or work on an official fansite
-Are friends/family of a Blizzard employee
-Bought the Dell laptop that comes with beta invites
-Purchased the Annual Pass

There have been no opt-in invites.


Ty for the quick response :-)

And thank you Bashiok for giving a clear and direct response, that I am sure will set a great many minds at ease. For the vast majority it was never about being entitled to day 1 access. It was just about knowing where we stand in the order of things.

Edit: removed a question that was already answered.

Actually no AP's are a priority. You are below us AP holders.

Yah Bashiok, can you post when all of those 100,000 invites have been sent out?

That would save a LOT of wear and tear on people's F5 keys. ^.^
