Just wanted to toss out a quick "thanks" to Blizzard and the blues.

The communication regarding Beta Invites is greatly appreciated.

I think you missed my account. * whistle*

ahh, yes, mine too
I hope I'll get in this time. I'm dying to try a Pandaren Mistweaver.

I already have a name all picked out for her! ;D
Seeing this post made me SO happy, then i remembered that 100k is only about 10% of the AP holders, and i started in mid wrath (not to mention got the AP a few weeks after it came out.) :(

Edit: HA, i forgot to express my extreme gratitude at the communication you are giving on this, and will wait patiently for my invite, even if it takes a month or so :)
For those interested I got in today

Start Date 12/2005

I would like an answer as to why they didn't mention waves at blizzcon or on the advertisements?

Because they did not expect over a million people to sign up for the annual pass. They cannot let one million people into a beta at the same time.

Luckily, they left room in the contract for their contingency plan, which was to let people in in smaller waves.

This Beta test could be the biggest attended ever.

*crosses fingers*
I have Realm First level 90 to achieve, but I cannot get that without mindlessly grinding 8 characters beforehand... invite porfavor?
Another 70-odd page thread incoming lol.

So are these waves going to continue like this untill everyone has been invited? Inviting 100k people daily?

Doubtful. They will stop inviting people when the realms show signs of instability. When they fix that issue, they'll continue to invite more. But don't expect 100k a day.

The best thing to see would be more servers so they can keep inviting.

Also: for you F5ers - stop. Log in and log out instead. Refreshing the page won't make the box show up.
You rock Bashiok !! :)

They're gonna send out more Opt-in invites, so the people who were never guaranteed access don't feel left out.
That's what i was thinking. Makes me sad :(
Blizzard dont make me ssaaaaaaaddd <3
