Incoming: 250,000 More Beta Invites - Wave 4
Blizzard is still working hard to make everyone happy and sent another wave of 250,000 Beta Invites, bringing the total to 550,000 Annual Pass Invites since the initial wave of beta testing!

As with previous waves, it’s going to take a while for the invites to process, so we recommend checking your games list in Account Management to see whether yours has arrived yet. Once it does, you’ll see the Mists of Pandaria beta client available for download from there. We expect this entire wave to take a day or so to complete.

We appreciate the enthusiasm of everyone who signed up for the World of Warcraft Annual Pass, and we’re working hard to get you into the beta. We know you’re excited to explore Pandaria and test the new content, and we’ll keep you posted here in the forums when we’re ready to send out another wave.

    The randomness is very random. I'm Jan '07 as well and no invite yet, incidentally.

    You just don't get it do you? Ofc people will think this way and I don't blame em...

    When you get as big as blizzard, it's stupid to think otherwise!

    Kinda like the same thing when you've been working for the same company for ages, you will be feeling entitled to promotions, raises, health insurance etc etc. I know I woulda been very disapointed if some random dude just came along and got my promotion outta the blue..

    well no. the invites have proven otherwise. people with 04/05/06 accounts still not in who signed up asap. and people who started playing in 08 and 09 who signed up later are in already.

    My beta test experience thus far has extended no further than the logins, but I will say this; ~500k people spread across only ~4 servers is going to be chaos, good luck to people even trying to log on never mind play, i'm not having much luck thus far.

    It'll take foreverrrr for the client to download though. 100kb/s downloads suck.
