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.

    THIS RIGHT HERE

    Since last night, Beta has been added to my account but I have not received an email telling me so. Check your BNet account to see if you have it!

    Edit: US, subbed to WoW since Feb 06, signed up for Annual Pass on the first day

    I'am not interested in the anual pass at all, but i'am very eager to get an beta invite. Been playing since vanila without any breaks. Now i'am forced to wait until all the fan boys got their beta invite. I'am paying the same ammount of money each month so i won't a chance with each wave aswell.

    Holy of Unholies! I thought I'd never get it this wave, been waiting 2 days in a row and when I finally lost all hope, BAM I got the invite at the Battle.net page. I'm EU, been playing since 2005.Also as soon as I launched the game I got the choice between WoW1 and WoW2 don't know what that means, maybe PTR vs MoP?

    Just got my invite, like one minute ago or so. Been playing since 2006, no breaks, annual pass in the first hour.

    Hum I just got the D3 Beta instead

    Update to my earlier post in this thread. Within the last 5 hours (1800 to 2300 UK Time (UTC+1)) the MoP beta has been applied to my (EU) account.
    Active since June 2006. Signed up for AP whilst it was being announced at Blizzcon.

    My fiancees account, also signed up for AP at the same moment, is from around 2008 iirc and does NOT have MoP beta at this time.

    So if I'm in this 100k wave it's taken about 24 hours to hit me. Or they've let a few more in.

If you're feeling left out and like you're "missing" something, ask yourself how many actual bug reports would you be sending, really.
    Doesn't matter, they said it came with the AP. They are failing a lot of people right now.

    They didn't have an annual pass before MoP. There was no guarantee you would get in beta. You just opted in and had a chance to get in. This isn't even close to the same.

    I think that's a comfort package for those who did not get in this wave.
    To be honest, it was kinda comforting lol
