100,000 More Beta-Test Invites - Wave 2

Yesterday’s 100,000 Annual Pass-holder beta-test invites ran through the night, and we’re still in the process of notifying the invitees by email. Those selected for yesterday’s wave of invites should all have the Mists of Pandaria beta client available for download through Battle.net account management, and they should all receive the email notification by end of day today. If the beta client shows up for you in Battle.net account management, you don’t need to wait for the email in order to download the client and begin testing.

We’re off to a solid start with the beta test, and things are looking good in terms of realm stability, so we’re ready to invite another wave of Annual Pass holders. A second wave of invites is going out to 100,000 more Annual Pass holders today, starting right now.

If you’re added in this or any subsequent wave, access to the beta client will show up in Battle.net account management as discussed above. Please check there today and tomorrow, as today’s wave of invites will be processing throughout the day and likely into early tomorrow morning. Notification emails will also be going out, but again, no need to wait for the email if the beta client is available to you through Battle.net account management.

    I understand that random people get invites even without AP etc, what I don't understand is when an INACTIVE RAF account with no annual pass and highest lvl char being lvl 60 gets a beta invite. The account has not been paid for in like a year yet a friend of mine has beta on it - le sad face
    lol @ this because, I checked an old inactive account, it has only vanilla on it, been inactive for yrs also has beta on it and has no annual pass etc. So its definitely weird in however the selection process is happening :/

    That is not what he said. Bliz has claimed Beta invites are based on a formula that considers months of active account status and time of AP sub.
    He is complaining that being deployed overseas lowers his overall months of account status because he was not able to play while deployed. His sense of being disadvantaged due to service to the country is valid. Companies and public institution, especially after over a decade into a war, should have come to understand and account for the service of those who have been fighting a decade of war while the rest of America sat on their couches In previous wars many many companies did account for military service. In WWII companies were essentially drafted into the war like everyone else. It is a common sentiment among troops that the U.S. Military is at war while America is at the mall. We have no sense that most Americans understand, are aware, or even care about the sacrifice of troops and their families. You, are an example of this lack of awareness. He is not asking for special treatment for his deployment - he is asking that, when possible, he not be further disadvantaged for his deployment. I am currently deployed to Afghanistan. I also apparently have a warrant for my arrest in Oakland for failure to appear to a traffic violation. I called Oakland traffic court I was deploying for a year and would not ba able to appear in court on the court date. They gave me a 1 month extension for my court date even though my deployment is a year long. This is an example of the complete lack of willingness to account for or give consideration for soldiers and their families. Now, when I finish this (my second) year long deployment to war I have to deal with the unnecessary expense and frustration of dealing with this legal issue when I return. This kind of nonsense is a very common occurrence among deployed service members.

    Not gonna lie, I'm pretty pissed that I haven't gotten in. I was patient and everything, but when I saw that another 200,000 invites when out I was positive I was getting in, but no :/ I've been playing since '06 (with about 65 months paid) and AP immediately after announcement. Fml
