MMO-Champion - Incoming: 250,000 More Beta Invites
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.

    you people see blizzard say "based on seniority" and immedietely think that that means that they are going to go through the list of AP subscribers 1 by 1 and give them to you in the EXACT order that you all bought WoW. how fucking stupid can you be. they are more then likely each wave inviting as many people as they can from certain time-frames, IE 2004-2005 subscribers first wave, 2005-2006 second wave, and getting a few people to go back each wave and try and get any that were left behind, stop acting like entitled brat's, the only reason ANY of us are getting in is because we agreed to the AP, and we ALL agreed to that so we are ALL entitled to EXACTLY the same thing. the invites "based on seniority" thing is stupid anyway since for a BETA you would want the widest range of testers you can get, why only invite people who all have the same mindset/played the game for the same amount of time? getting BETA access is the contract, getting BETA access before everyone else just because you have played since vanilla is not! so quit being so fucking entitled.

    While I am truly happy for the new people that got in (I got in in the first big 100000 wave; it's exciting, isn't it? ), I can't help but also feel a bit worried about what 250000 more people mean for lag/stability/playability issues this might cause on the servers, considering I was planning on spending most of the upcoming 4 day long Easter weekend playing beta XD

    (I did suspect that Blizzard wanted to get quite a lot of new testers in before the holiday, I'm glad that they didn't have any issues preventing that from happening)

    Grats new testers, see you in-game!

    How is complaining about how long you've played and how you signed up for AP the first day going to help you get into beta any quicker? Just wait and you'll get it.

    I really don't understand why people are so stoked to get in the beta so early. There is literally almost no content available and people pissing themselves because they didn't get an invite immediately is seriously confusing to me. Even getting an invite now isn't worthwhile and I was one of the first to get one..

    The US team is handling ALL invites to Beta. EU F&F have to be referred to them.

    Looks like Blizzard is keeping up a very good pace. Here's to hoping I get an invite tonight.

    Edit: Got it!

    Yeah get in when there is no testing left to do because Blizz is cheap and intentionally dumping 250000 people on 4 measly servers.

    SCREW THEM

    Because no matter what they say they're doing to determine who gets in...they're full of it. There is zero rhyme or reason (other than having the AP) to being invited first.

    this clearly says they arent just pooling from AP users. Not that I am surprised. But I am running out of patience. I know the wave is supposed to go out over the next 24 hours but You can be pretty certain that They all went out pretty much immediately. so. any of you gotten one just show up in your f5 spamming?

    I first started playing in July 2006 as noted above from my payment history, and I just got an invite, for what it's worth.

    Diablo 3 isn't even out yet and a good majority of the people complaining aren't even in the MoP beta so tell me...what exactly are they going to be losing now??
