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.

    How long ago did it show up? Hoping to find out whether the waves still going or it's finished.

    Although this is good news, I don't see myself in the beta at all, to be honest. 3 guildies with up to 2 years younger accounts than I have got in.Mine is from April 05 and got the AP within 5 min of the announcement.After they announced the criteria for getting in, I feel kinda left out. So I don't hope for beta anymore. If I get it, it's a bonus, even when I have the AP.It's just my luck.

    Thanks for the quick answer

    PS: How did all these "youtube-guys" get their Key in the first round then? :O (i.e: Hydra, Swifty, Mercader, bunch of others...) Does that work via connections or ...?

    I think I read somewhere that the first wave was only for Press (Youtube guys etc) and for a small amount of Annual Pass Subscriptions.

    "however, all Annual Pass holders will be invited before any opt-ins"

    If we rely on all the "we've been scammed" conspiracy theory advocates, AP were to be invited a week before launch (their words, not mine). If the above is true, then it means that opt-ins will never be invited.

    Damnit, Blizzard now screwed opt-ins!


    And yes, the above was sarcasm, although I wouldn't be surprised to see anything along these lines.

    Been subbed since 04 and got the annual pass on day 1. No invite.

    Got mine.

    I did not recieve an e-mail, had to logon battle.net to see it. I guess I might have gotten it earlier, it's been like 3 days since I last checked. I did take part of the Cataclysm beta, and made very sure I gave a lot of feedback, hoping it'd get me a quick invite for next beta. Of course it's impossible to know if that had any part of it.

    I gotta hold off on playing until wednesday though, finish up a bunch of important schoolwork. After that I'm gonna go hardcore Monk leveling.
