100,000 Annual Pass Invites On Their Way
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
We appreciate that everyone who signed up for the Annual Pass is genuinely excited about seeing the new content and helping us test it for release. We definitely want to get all Annual Pass holders into the beta test as soon as humanly (and technologically) possible.

To do so, we need to make sure that our new systems remain stable as we add players. If we let everyone in at the exact same time, we risk damaging the stability of the service, and then no one would be able to play. We can’t let everyone in at the same time; however, all Annual Pass holders will be invited before any opt-ins.

We’re in the process of sending 100,000 invites to Annual Pass holders, and we recommend keeping an eye on your email and Battle.net account for an invite to come explore Pandaria.

Rest assured that we WILL get all of our Annual Pass holders into the beta test. Thank you for the passion and support you’ve shown for the game, and please be patient with us as we continue driving hard toward finishing up Mists of Pandaria and getting it into your hands as quickly as possible.

    Here's to hoping the people that get the beta actually test it, and don't log in for just a few minutes or not even log in at all!Time to kill my F5 key.

    Blizzard has stated many times that they are running some of the best servers out there. There are some problems they can just throw money at

    I wonder does this include or exclude the invs earlier today.

    No surprises here. People will get their turns eventually. No amount of whining will do anything. Even if Blizzard wanted to do something, they can't. Because it's common sense the servers can't handle everyone at once. I suggest people who are whining just shut up and be patient. You have no choice.

    If you look it was actually just 15 minutes ago. Something must be up with the blue tracker. Just thought to point that out. :P

    Oh shush, they didn't promise you beta access.

    That's only 10% of the AP holders. And after that it'll probably take a while for the rest of us to get in.

    That's a pretty darn big chunk of players, pretty sure I'm still not getting mine this go, but, it's nice to see them moving along.

    Pretty sure this includes the ones from earlier. It takes a while to set up 100k accounts for access to the server as well as just sending 100k emails out. They probably staggered the invites on purpose so not everyone was trying to get in at the same time.

    Or... the QQ finally made them rush on invites

    Does anybody think that they are still sending out invites for US players?
