    Just a question, how much did you try to get a key? Just waited for one from Blizzard or participated in fansite giveaways/competitions and lost?

    You didn't get in to Mists of Pandaria? All you had to do was keep an active subscription :/

    You must just be the most casual player NA. Because anyone who tried to get one, got one in MOP

    I've never gotten into a WoW beta. Got into diablo 3 and hearthstone though.

    i've always been subbed to WoW, don't remember getting invite to MoP beta, though i was doing my best to ignore beta stuff, so maybe i successfully ignored it.

    but the only blizzard beta i have been in is hearthstone, and thats because they inivted everyone :P

    I'm sorry to hear that, OP. I was in the F&F alpha for Lich King, but only because at the time my brother knew a Blizzard employee (an ex-guildie of ours). That's just happenstance. Since then I have been very casual, so haven't even tried to participate in either alpha or beta testing of expansions.

    Maybe you could hold your breath for the beta. It's still a wee bit away and they are very likely to have mass invites just to push the servers in preparation for release day. There is always an influx of player demographics in the first week of release of an expansion, so I can see them doing at least a handful of stress test weekends with invites being thrown out willy-nilly.

    its alpha, pretty sure they're doing moreso known streamers + f/f + press type people arent they?

    I got one of the first invites for Cata beta, Diablo 3 mid-late beta, Hearthstone first EU wave beta though I didn't get MoP (It required that Annual Pass but it didn't work for my country unfortunately)

    Hoping for WoD as well perhaps...

    Also too soon for invites now, it's only press/family and friends at the moment.

    as much as i would like to get into a beta/alpha, i also wouldn't want to play it. im not great at finding bugs, i'd rather play the finished and less buggy game.
    mostly because of cata, i watched so many beta videos of everything, every dungeon, every zone, everything, by the time the game released none of it was new to me, i had seen every dungeon boss, so i don't want that to happen again.

    I got into Cata beta middle, very first round of invite for MoP. Truthfully, don't feel bad if you miss the first few rounds. The game is barely playable.

    To not get bored for example of Cata, I did some testing but very little from what I would play on live not to hurt my enjoyment of the expansion.
    Since I play Horde only, I instead tested Worgen starting zone + continued leveling it more since the world was revamped and somebody had to test that stuff too :P

    So for WoD for example, could test the Alliance part or something.

    Never got into a WoW Beta (not counting MoP, since the only way you didn't get into that one was simply not trying.) however I've been in D3, Hearthstone etc

    I never got into an MoP beta and I was subbed and participated in contests. I'll still participate in contests for WoD beta keys.

    P.S. been playing for 7 years and 10 months and I've never been invited to a beta.

    Can I just point out that there's no point in whining about not being invited to the Friends and Family Alfa if you're not a FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER OF A BLIZZARD EMPLOYEE. So unless you know someone who really works in their places, don't whinge about not getting it yet, you'll get one when Blizz are good and ready to take it out of F&F Only which its in at the moment.

    Look on the bright side. Who wants to play an unfinished, buggy version with servers shutting down constantly and spoil the experience? Unless you are a really serious tester who actually wants nothing more than help create a bug free game on release.

    I had beta invites for the last few x-pacs but never really bothered....

    The reason to be in a Beta is so that you can test and give feedback, do people not realize that MoPs Beta invitations were stupid, wrong and Blizzard aren't taking that route again? It was simply a marketing tool so they could keep customers entertained.

    Seriously, 75% of my Guild (that's like... 80 people) and practically ALL of my Real ID List (200?) got into MoP Beta and the only useful thing to come out of it was "Oh we can test raids now" which never happened because my guild were too lazy. I suspect it's the same for a lot of people, you're not interested in being in the Beta to benefit the game. You just want to play as soon as possible and that is not at all the point of the beta.

    Exactly, its not like its anything like a finished product so 99% of the people here would get into it, have the game crash and them come here going AMFHG WURST 'SPANSHUN EVHA!
