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.

    How do you check that? When I log into my account, I go to Transaction History and then Order History and I get an XML error every single time.

    AP Owner
    Active Sub since July 2005, however transferred to a new account towards the end of WotLK, so I imagine i'm going to get fucked over by that... ah well.

    WoW sub since 2nd day of EU release (stupid lazy postmen) AP signed up for during Blizzcon announcement. No invite. Maybe when I wake up...

    I didn't get an Email or anything on my account that says I was in beta, yet I'm in the beta. You should all just try to log on and see if you can get in.

    If there's no seniority involved I will be even more furious than I already am. Having my account since Vanilla, and signed the day AP came out. Should have been in already. Knowing Blizzard, my invite won't come until last wave ... the matter of me buying the game or not is on the beta. I hate the lack of item squish over anything. So if my beta experience sucks... well there goes the game for good Cos getting shafted by company you've been loyal to for 7 years is not a good feeling.

    From what I can see, not counting all the "free" days from RAF and etc., I have about 4 and a half years of paid game time. Add another 7 months to that if we count the other stuff. Hopefully it's enough to get somewhere during the next wave or so.

    Did you guys needed to whine that much? it was obvious that they couldnt invite everyone at the same time.

    I can log in also, still I dont have e-mail notify or check on account manage. I can't go further then "Logging in to game server".

    This is happening for everyone not in the beta, they are just getting the PTR servers for some reason, does not mean you're in beta.

    Got 2 years of active cumulative months ... I've got my account since 2009 and Sub to the AP 1-2weeks after it came out. Doesn't sound that good to me :S + I'm in the European servers...

    I've only been subbed for two years so I know it'll be a long while before I get mine. Not like I'm very interested in the beta anyway. I have no intention of questing through the zone nor doing new dungeons. All I'm interested is in seeing whether or not shadow priests are as crap as I think they'll be, so that I can find a suitable class to have ready for MoP.

    I feel like running through the new zones and dungeons ruins the live release. At least for me.

    Good that they finally said that everyone who bought AP will get in before any Opt-Ins. Now I don't need to check my e-mail anymore. I hope they don't do any more of these "guaranteed beta" things.

    It won't kill the qq threads. "10%?!?! That's not enough! Let us all in NOW!!!"

    This is very good news I didn't get in this wave either, but atleast I know Blizzard is really stepping things up concerning getting every AP user in.
