100,000 Annual Pass Invites On Their Way

I still have not gotten mine, I only got my Annual Pass recently before beta was announced.

How long will I have to wait?
Thank you for the announcement!

Would it be too much to ask to let us know when you're done with the wave for today? I keep refreshing my email with high hopes, lol.
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. :)
Thankyou for the heads up, am waiting patiently as patience always pays off in the end:)

Anyone get an invite yet? They should invite at least everyone who commented on this thread!

I agree!

Also, does anyone know how many (total) people signed up for the Annual Pass? I wanted to estimate my likelihood of getting an invite this wave.
How many annual pass subscribers are there that are waiting to get in? What is the time table? How long does it take to insure beta stability? How long does it take 100,000 beta invites to go out? Will you tell us when they are finished going out? And so on and so on....


i think you'll find they send out batches hourly.. so there servers dont get slammed all at once


eh, I am a very big pessimist and with the type of luck I have in real life, well, you get the idea xD


yeah but that doesnt change the fact that companies do things a certain way :P and sending out waves of invites are usually in small batches over a period of time, so email servers dont collapse, download servers dont get hammered all at once etc... it's failsafe to try and minimize problems

Thank you. I apologize for any harsh things I said earlier, I did not realize the reason you were so quiet the last few days was for this.
Still going out eh? Fingers mega-crossed.
Best to check your BNET account the emails tend to come a hour or so after your account is flagged.
Anyone else feel a terrible silky emptiness when they refresh to see nothing has changed on their battle.net account or email?
