Wonder if Free-To-Play accounts have access to PTR... Anyone know?
Holy sheeeet ! September 4th or 11th are looking pretty good for MoP release, now ...
So I have a normal game account, one named as wow1 for ptr, and wow2 for mop beta, yet I still can't use ptr? That seems kinda ehh...
September 11th? Wouldn't count on it, not because it's too soon, but simply due to the significance of the date.
As for the testing... Just because we have beta, means we can't test 5.0.1? Are they going to ADD that content to the beta so we can see it, or are we just going to get stuck missing out on testing content? Because that's kind of unfair. I'm an Annual Pass guy, and I've regretted buying it for months now. And then this?
So never mind, I realize he meant that the ptr stuff makes it onto live, as opposed to the ptr you know, coming out. Ignore my post

why would you care about the PTR if you have beta access they prob dont want the PTR flooded
Pre-orders going up mid august said my game retailer, and are generally always shipping 2-3 weeks after that date :P
They've had the pre-patch migration data up on the background downloader for over a month now :
So If you've still had the PTR installed from the last PTR they did . when you open the launcher for the PTR it would start downloading data
Maybe they wouldn't have released, oh, say, Cataclysm, with its trailer of a flying object destroying buildings, on that date (at least not anytime this century), but I think Mists is safe.
Talent patch PTR > 2 weeks > Talent patch on live + Invasion event on PTR > 2 weeks > Invasion event enabled on live > 2 weeks > MoP Launch.

Fair enough that they want to give people who didn't get a chance to get into the Beta something to do aswell, but isn't it a little odd that you get locked out of something after paying?
Not that i'm personally really bothered about it.. just struck me as odd
