    Not everyone gets in. You don't get special treatment just because you've kept a subscription permanently rolling since the first week of Vanilla.

    Half the people crying here won`t even make to level 60 on live.

    It is what it is, some people get in, some don`t. If you are not in the friends, family or streamer list, just pray for the rng jesus like the rest of us plebs.

    Anyone know if they've already handed out the extra access for stress test people? I don't see it, but I may just not have been chosen. If they haven't yet, seems like they're not giving people much time beforehand to download it. It's not like WoW is a tiny game, and people work and stuff and won't be able to download during the day tomorrow.

    Blizzard said themselves that they will prioritize accounts who have been created during vanilla release.
    Obviously it makes sense for them, since those people know what the game was like back then and can report bugs unlike those who never played vanilla and just want in on the beta.

    It was a surprisingly fast download. After about 5 seconds of downloading it was in Playable status. And this is just over a standard Spectrum cable connection

    I'll admit, this is something I wasn't aware of. Is this strictly to Polymorph or would it count for other things as well (Repentance)?
    I'm reasoning it's only polymorph because it causes the target to rapidly heal and could be used for trolling purposes. Heal a mob you didn't tag so it kills the player(s) fighting it so you can tag it.

    I got into the stress test, as an EU player will I only be able to play between 1 and 3 am local time tomorrow? Do I keep the access for "regular" beta later?

    Several things are going to happen which the test is likely mostly about.

    1. Log in servers being pounded, character creation getting pounded, zoning into the starting zone pounded. Good testing.

    2. As people zone in layering will be tested to make sure it is working as Blizzard intends it to. Good testing.

    After that odds are its just going to be a tag fest with 100s of people going after single mobs. People will get enraged. We will have a ton of entertaining posts to laugh about because of it. Not many people will actually be leveling that effectively during the 2 hour period. Maybe in the following days people will hit 5, but... ummm.. have fun I guess.

    Also level 5 cap? Come on now.. They must be testing the layering tech above everything else it seems.
    The level 5 cap is to keep everyone in the same general areas. Otherwise, it would not be much of a stress test. It is also only for 2 hours, so no reason to worry about higher levels.

    If you log in now and only see a grayed out "Stress Test" realm. Then you only have access for the stress test, but are part of the larger beta pool. Meaning most likely at some point you'll be selected in a future wave.

    From what I understand you will have access to the stress test realm from 1 AM local time, basically for 24 hours until they shut it down on Thursday. They will only be monitoring it from 1am - 3am however.

    Took me a whopping 4 minutes or so to d/l and install. It is only ~5 GB.

    Seriously, it's been 2 months without a pirate island expedition. Been waiting so long to try and get the parrot mount

    Does this mean I have beta access or just the stress test.

    you are reading way to much into it. I simply meant that when people are invited to stress test something, they could have been able to keep playing after, they could have plopped up a few more beta servers. More people testing = Less bugs, it benefits everyone.
