    I feel kind of bad now. I signed up for the beta as a joke to block someone else from getting in cause I don't like the idea of Classic. Now I got a wasted invite and I feel a bit of regret from stopping someone else from getting in.

    Not a streamer. Not an "influencer". Not friends/family with Blizzard staff. I'm nobody, really, and I got in. I can only think it was some combination of sheer luck plus the fact (maybe?) that I started playing on the first day of release - I pre-ordered the vanilla collectors edition - and have played pretty steadily since then - though I've had at least a couple of year-long breaks and certainly don't play as much now as I did back in the day.

    I enjoy betas; I enjoy testing and giving feedback - so I'll do my best to respect and appreciate the fact that I got in and will try to be useful. Good luck to anyone hoping for an invite!

    I wonder if they'll invite people who are not currently subscribed, I wouldn't subscribe just for a chance to play the beta, but would definitely subscribe if I got an invitation.

    It was only a veeeeeeeery select few who got beta so this was expected. I'm an OG classic player and I didn't get in but my friend who started in Cata got in.

    I wasnt too hyped for the beta itself though, only times when I get excited about a beta is right before a new MMO release. Classic isn't really new

    No beta for this guy, but it's no biggie honestly, what's there to test besides bug issues anyway?

    I am not gonna get concerned until I miss the 2nd wave. historically, that is when I have gotten almost all my beta invites... going back to Cataclysm. HotS technical alpha, and SCII closed beta were exceptions.

    Also got beta. Just an old gamer from Jan 2005.

    Yep, pretty much the same move they pulled for the Overwatch "beta". Every streamer and youtuber that's even remotely known, with a few random people thrown. All while they pretend the game needs to be tested.

    I don't understand the want to get into this beta? You lose all your progress when it releases live right?

    It's not like you all are going to see anything new after all lol

    And yet here I am, in beta.
    Good to see that they have their priorities straight /s

    For me its more to test my ui, set up keybinds, get a feel for the balance and questing routes to start etc.

    Sure I could do this on unnamed servers but ive never played them and never will so personal preference there.

    4th option: I'm not subbed.
    I voted 3rd option

    For me personally, I want to check the best routes to level & create some addons on it.

    Nah, just the same I am not overly enthusiastic about classic so even if I get it I don't even know if I will spend any meaningful time playing it, maybe to try and optimize leveling paths or something like that since I know I can level much faster this time around than I could in '05 when I started playing without the faintest of clues as to what I was supposed to do or supposed to go.

    So far this is actually pretty decent. Not going to be put too much time into it because it's a beta after all. Still don't like some of the choices Blizzard went with for this though.

    Where's that guy that always stalks and harasses me and tells me that I'm a waste of a character slot in classic because I'm critical of some decisions that Blizzard makes? =]

    I didn't but I'm off active sub until the end of the month so obviously didn't get it.

    My wife and I both got in. Both played since early beta days, active subscriptions since launch day.

    Checked launcher, seen "Beta: WoW Classic" under PTR, installed. Had a rush of memories seeing chat with all the names of rares, named mobs, areas and was like "fuck yea". Got to level 8, remembered I fucking despise leveling, uninstalled.
