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.

    According to the timestamps on the blue tracker posts (not the mini feed up on top) they are exactly one hour apart, but I did not check the source posts, so I'll take your word for it.

    Annual Pass holders are mad. Hopefully they'll be less mad.

    Beta is not a privilege, let alone a right. You are never, ever, ever promised access to the beta except in circumstances ala annual pass.

    and if you receive a diablo 3 beta invite which you didn't opt-in for should you take it as "not this time"? at least i don't remember opting-in?

    I just hope it's not true that senority is actually consecutive months active, or i'll be the absolute last guy to get a key. I had to take 1 day off in September.

    That'd be great, but I've a feeling that the breaks between beta invite waves will be longer than a week apart. I think maybe 2-3 weeks instead.

    i know but its a bit of a downer after being opt in for so long(with no beta invites yet)to read you are being pushed to the end of the beta
