Your post is wrong on pretty much everything you said, first off you get D3 for free and there is no subscription fee, second the wording states you are guarenteed to beta test a future blizz product it doesnt say the first second we open up the beta every single AP user will get in that exact moment. Also like blizz has stated only about a million times check your battle.net profile as not everyone who has been invited to the beta has recieved an email or it is in your spam folder. I was on my battle,net account and was playing beta 3days before my email arrived. I dont see blizz being at fault in any of this I see it mostly as your problem so deal with it and quit whining.
Yeah I was forced to pay for the AP because Blizzard held a gun to my head, I didn't have a choice. Oh wait.
You had a choice and you made the decision, it's not a scam and it's your own fault for agreeing to something you were too stupid to properly think about.

Annual pass was a great thing , imnsho.
Pay wow for 1 year ? i would have in anycase.
MoP beta ? great thing this too, been testing it since i got the access and didnt get bored ( despite the million errors per day i get )
D3 for free ? great , coz i'd have bought it in anycase.
I wish next pass will give us sc2 expansions free and maybe some d3 expansion or sort of .
So "I signed up three days ago to the annual pass and i cant believe i still haven't been invited to the beta yet but they already have my money and MoP's crap anyway i want my money back."
I love the annual pass deal, not only do I still play WoW but I get to try the beta and I also get a free copy of Diablo 3....I would be paying without the pass anyway I got the extra stuff for free, its gonna feel even sweeter on the 15th when Diablo is released.
I knew I was to subscribe the whole year to WoW (I subscribe for periods of 6 months) so I got some nice free perks.
I think that next time Blizzard does a promotion like this, they have to add some sort of CAPTCHA test before you are able to get to click "Sign up". Just make it something simple like 3 questions:
What is 4+3 ?
What is the third letter in the alphabet ?
Have you gone to school for more than 2 years ?
That should sort out the majority of idiots that dont read stuff before they agree to it, and also, it will mean less idiotic "omg Blizz scammed meeee" posts
In this and all topics of it's ilk: There's absolutely nothing wrong with anything so long as you don't have to do it, and it works for you.
I'm happy with my annual pass, but I'm not so far up somewhere that I can't understand why some people would be miffed with it. Nor do I care for companies enticing you with presents into financial commitments via contracts all too much. (Nor should most people, it's why the cell phone companies are god awful!)
(In hope of less AP QQ-Posts on MMO )
b) So you wrok withing Blizz/Activision? (somehow I strongly doubt that)
c) apart from 12*10$ = 120$ bucks it must be "you pay to continue playing wow AND get a FREE copy of Diablo 3"
Op : mother can i use your credit card to buy something
Mother : what is it first
Op: its a year sub to Warcraft but i also get to test there up and coming beta and also i get a free game out of it also
Mother : No way, you spent too much time on that machine already
Op : www.mmo-champion.com create thread Blizzard/MMO Frustration.
Alright, this has turned sour.
There are plenty of threads about the AP floating around either way.
