While there's nothing official, I'll say, "I can see them doing that."

If you signed up for Hearthstone, you're on the list. I really, really doubt that having an active WoW sub will affect things at all.
Try to argue with that flawless logic, I say.
I agree with the above!
Post more constructively next time, please.

I'd be totally fine with it, just like I'm fine with the people who bought the annual pass getting priority to the MOP Beta.
If blizzard want to give extra bonuses to their existing fanbase and supporters, I can see logic in that (I can also see xskarma's point), ESPECIALLY since the HS beta has ingame rewards iirc, though that seems more of an indication that everyone will get in at some point, since people would go bananas if they didn't get their mount.
So yeah, I wouldn't dislike them if they did do it, but all signs indicate (to me) that everyone will get in at some point.
What's even more likely though is that they'll look at technical specs (like you are forced to give them to even sign up for beta) and invite people based on what specs they want to test, at least at first. I can see Annual pass distribution of beta access being how they'll distribute HS beta as well. Going off of past loyalty and beta sign up date to determine who gets in first, but eventually everyone getting the chance to play.
What it won't be is Blizzard denying beta access to anyone who dared to enter beta sign up without being subbed to WoW. That'd be shutting out a whole range of people that are interested in the game.

Most likely, yes.
There is no such thing as "ability bloat" just l2fp.
I got Cata and MoP beta access while not having an active sub as well as D3 and SC2.
Most likely tags you as a subscriber getting you access faster.
Didnt people get into the beta of wow faster by being subbed for a long time and the time of their account creation? Think i heared something about that with MoP
Pretty sure if your not subbed you will not get beta.
depends, theres ingame rewards for wow players when they buy the packs right? seems like someone wanting a mount in wow is more likely to pay for cards
My friend who hasn't been subed to wow since BC got into cata and wrath beta D3 beta and SC2 beta (also heart of the swarm although maybe that was him preordering it can't remember) meanwhile I was subbed to wow DAY ONE LAUNCH without a SINGLE cancelation 7+ years non stop payment.. never got a single beta invite lol now I have cancelled (not related) lets hope I get invited now!
