Incoming: 250,000 More Beta Invites - Wave 4
Blizzard is still working hard to make everyone happy and sent another wave of 250,000 Beta Invites, bringing the total to 550,000 Annual Pass Invites since the initial wave of beta testing!

As with previous waves, it’s going to take a while for the invites to process, so we recommend checking your games list in Battle.net Account Management to see whether yours has arrived yet. Once it does, you’ll see the Mists of Pandaria beta client available for download from there. We expect this entire wave to take a day or so to complete.

We appreciate the enthusiasm of everyone who signed up for the World of Warcraft Annual Pass, and we’re working hard to get you into the beta. We know you’re excited to explore Pandaria and test the new content, and we’ll keep you posted here in the forums when we’re ready to send out another wave.

We'll get it whenever they feel like it or RNG is on our side I suppose.
    Exactly, it's just random or atleast it seems like that by reading some of the posts.. Blizzard can't keep what they said but hey it's not like it's the first time this happens!

    Im not mad or anything but i'm sure as hell not gonna sit around and wait for it if it's based on rng... Like everything els in the WoW series!

    also to the guy above me: ur paying blizz more not getting annual pass i do believe also u used to be able to get into beta without paying
    yes they did and they will. but only AFTER they get all the annual pass people in who were GUARANTEED access. i don't get why so many people can't accept the logic of letting people in who were told they were getting guaranteed access in before letting in the non-annual pass holders.

    Started March 05' and AP'd soon as it became available. Still nothing but my brother and all my other friends who started playing after me got in on 2nd wave. I'm starting to think its because we have the same address and won't give 2 passes to one address or something.

    No. Some husband/wife(fiancee) combos have gotten double passes. So will give multiples to same address if different accounts.

    Can only hope that they are still sending them out as i have yet to receive one thus far.

    Like i posted when everyone (or at least the most vocal 'everyone') was smashing Blizzard saying that the whole annual pass thing is BS and this and that, they WILL invite EVERYONE who bought the ap. When you get your invite depends on when they decide to send you one not when you think you should have received one.

    No beta club. I'm starting to get pissed.

    If it wasn't obvious yet, they completely lied about seniority.
    really? then how come i've seen no-1 post saying they have got in with an account any later then 2008? if they COMPLETELY lied about seniority there would be just as many people saying they've got it and only bought their account in 2009/10/11/12, but there aren't any, and i HIGHLY doubt that blizzard is going to bother looking through their files to see that you claimed that you had an account made a month or so after launch and link it to your 2.4.3 one, they are going to be ticking you off as if you made it in 2.4.3, my account was made at cata launch (though i had an old account that got hacked that i made right before BC launch) and i only got BETA in febuary so i know im going to be in the last wave but i don't care! because for 1, if you get in in any of these wave's you are not going to be able to do anything because they still only have a few servers and there will be tonnes of people getting in at once and the servers will be laggy and/or crash from the stress, though if you get in later they will more then likely have more servers up, most of the server lag/crash issues would of been worked out and all the people from the previous waves would of moved on by now, not to mention there will be MUCH more content to test later on, all you've got now is pandaren starting zone and the jade forest (85-86 pandaren zone), so just be patient for god's sake.

    And I am only going to say this once, THE INVITES FOR THIS WAVE HAVE NOT FINISHED YET, the blue poster estimated it will take a whole day to get sorted out! that is 24 hours estimated time and it has only been 1-2 hours since they announced it! that means only 5-10% (rough guess) of the total invites have been sent out! HAVE SOME FUCKING PATIENCE!
