I am not in beta but I wintessed the mess a couple of days ago on friends account. Is Blizzard increasing the number of realms with these invites too? I mean it went 1st wave, which was OK, then suddenly two waves, 100k each and it totally killed the realms. And now they add 2.5 times the last wave on top of all that? I mean not even the tactic "play in 4am so it's not that crowded" will work anymore.
That island was there all the time,they just added some thiny things. sigh
oh noes content rehash.
But surprise, not all scenarios will be in Pandaria, I even actively hope for some "classic" scenarios, retelling famous group quests from Vanilla (e.g. Battle for Darrowshire, or Jintha'Alor, which isn't large enough to be a dungeon, but could work as a scenario)
Nope nothing on my emails or even BNET for that matter...
Ugh, I just feel like I'm going to get it last minute when the beta is almost over... >.>
Half of the people who signed up for the AP still don't have access to beta. If they keep going in waves of 250, you will be in in no time. I registered in 2004, took the AP 2 days after the announcement, got the beta just yesterday. It all depends on how much life you had. Seems like ALOT of people have been playing (and paying) for a looonnng time. I suspect that the 2005-2006 players who got in NEVER stopped the paiments, ever, to get invited sooner than the 2004's.
