    Cry more? It makes perfect Sense to give Like 100 Keys to streamers.

    I wonder how many people will quit in beta - before the real Classic starts.

    Let's assume that only testing is important for Blizz. What makes you think that you are a better Tester than a Streamer playing the Game as a job, or addon developers. A Beta invite is Not a fan/loyalist service ffs.

    What makes you think being a streamer makes you a good game tester?

    Its obviously will be nothing like the old days and people are just filled with nostalgia, when wow came out people were a lot younger, for many wow was their first mmo and guides on the internet was very limited.

    this beta is like 6 hours in and people are already level 30+, some of them will probably be 60 by the 24 hour mark easy, and raids will be cleared in the first weeks

    i never cared about people getting to max level or clearing content faster than me.
    i'm playing the way i enjoy the game. was like that back then and will still be like that now.

    Maybe not a good game tester per se, but beeing watched and basically recording/streaming every step they make during beta will definitely help the devs for sure. In theory it's much easier to find a problem/bug/glitch if you caught it 'on tape' while ~25k people are watching. Also streamers often go out of the regular way to entertain their viewers, so they maybe encounter a problem other people wouldn't even find.

    Please don't get me wrong. I'm not defending either way in this 'streamer-privilege' debate, but there are definitely other aspects to it then just generating hype/monitizing the beta.

    Really great selection system
    Playing since day 1 vanilla, doing pvp/raiding/everything excessive since 14+ years, no breaks and never got into any early beta yet. I get in with the last big push 1-2 weeks before its ends.

    No lies btw. DAY-1 Vanilla + check my armory link

    they need max 1 week to get 60, probably not even that

    Its a shame, every person with an account that bought wow back then, should be allowed to play on beta realm.

    Blizzard, you dishonor the people that made your game a big one. Now that was a fail boat.

    Its so unfair to every person that played the game since the beginning.
