100,000 Annual Pass Invites On Their Way

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.

    Hahahaha oh I get it ... You're someone who thinks that Blizzard should have had 50 servers up on Day 1 Beta and invited every single AP holder..

    Ok sure... Keep living that Sweet life of Being Moronic. BioWare had alot of people in Beta ... Even on the Open Beta weekends they DID NOT have 50 servers running.

    Blizzard SHOULD have made it clear that we were going to get invites in Waves BEFORE they announced the Beta.
    They SHOULD have made it clear AP holders would get in before all Opt-Ins BEFORE they announced the Beta.

    I definitely think Blizzard lacked Communication in this whole Scenario instead of just Springing it on everyone During and after the Beta Announcement...

    But even with that aside... You can't seriously think, and have expected, Blizzard to be hosting countless Beta servers and inviting 1million People into the Buggy and Unstable Patch/Servers ON DAY ONE. Hell they could have put 1 server up and invited only Press and still been well within their rights, would still have been disheartening, but definitely Within their Rights.

    The problem is with the people who have too low standards for the quality of the services they pay for. Of course if mommy and daddy are giving you the money you don't care... maybe you should try to work and earn them to understand the issue.

    I really doubt it, there is still around 7-800k out there that will be crying for their beta keys.

    I think that entering my 3rd decade and in a job as an oracle DBA for oracles second biggest customer would be considered "working" the fact my post pointed out "when folks leave home and join the real world" should have helped too.

    Annual pass was worded a little ambiguously, sense on top of that would lean much towards a little sense saying it wasn't going to be 1.2m people on day 1. We still have thousands of kiddies up in arms wailing that it gone a WEEK and they still aren't in beta. Like it's the end of the world or something.

    You'd think this would be much more likely with folks who are still: Young, entitled, living at home than folks who actually understand the world a bit. Basically, wrong on all points.
