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.

    Technically - I think this news will decimate those threads. Sadly, I mean literally.

    There haven't really been a reasonable amount of posts here saying they've gotten one, yet. It can take awhile to get all the appropriate accounts flagged for beta access.

    Replace DOT and SLASH with . and / respectively. Stupid new user privileges.

    This is great news.

    I was sitting at dinner and received an email, and I got into the Diablo III beta! WRONG GAME BLIZZARD!

    Lol, jk. I'm just grateful I got into a beta at all, and I'm very much so looking forward to Diablo III, so I won't complain.

    Not to mention knowing the way Blizzard runs things, those who signed up the moment the words about AP where spat from their mouths at Blizzcon wont get in till the end.

    I am a 2007 joiner so I am hoping within a week or two.

    If anyone joined around the same time and has gotten in I wouldn't mind you telling me

    Assuming they let in 100k ppl first wave, then another 100k this wave, and there were about 1 mil AP lock ins. This wont take to long to get everyone into beta! Really hoping I get in this round!

    Nope, i'll be getting in after you. I had to take off for a while from september to december for work/school. I signed back up with an AP, so i'm probably DFL, even though i've been playing since 8/06. Oh well, as long as i get to play and test some things, i'll be happy.

    Sorry to burst your bubble (and mine and others'), but Kanegasi has pointed out a Twitter response from Bashiok.

    Far as I know it's cumulative subscription time.

    Ugh, got a useless D3 beta today instead of the MoP one. Why Blizzard! WHY?!
  1. Marymary's Avatar
    Logged into bnet to check something and saw I had gotten into D3 beta, 10 mins later my account page showed MoP beta link...no email, but still got in. Dont just go by if you got an email or not. Check you battlenet account as well.
