    They also said long-time players in good standing would be prioritized. As a 2004 and continuing active subber, I can say this wasn't the case.

    i hope the people who do get beta actually TEST stuff instead of saying they got beta, log in for like 5 min then never log into it again, because they know their progress in beta will not carry over when the thing actually launches.

    But even Ion mentioned it in the Preach discussion. they end up with way too many people who get beta but never actually log in to test it.

    unless he got it before and just noticed it that day or it was a special kind of wave happening on a monday

    if I remember from the previous betas in which I was in (WoD, Legion, BfA) they always went out after a new build was uploaded to the servers, I hope I'm wrong though

    I tested the shit out of mop, wod and legion... got BfA beta and just couldn't be arsed, the entire expansion was a dud from the moment it was announced for me.

    Ready to get some mad testing on SL though.

    Probably not gonna happen. Would look forward for Wednesday at this point. It's almost 5pm in Irvine, so the work day is coming to an end.

    Well aren't you just Merry Sunshine? No one personally told you that you were going to be invited did they? Wait with the rest of us and quit trying to be entitled...jesus.

    If you're hoping for SL to be good - sure, but if you'd want to get into beta yourself, you should actually hope for the opposite

    Right there with you. Subbed since Nov 23rd, 2004 with no suspensions and no lapses. Still no invite. I wish Ion would have never said what he did.

    Why no giveaways this time? It was my best chance to win a Key
    I Hope it's only for now

    It's VERY important to be 100% honest. Giving bad data doesn't help anyone.

    1) Have you EVER had anything negative with your account? Ban, suspension, warning, anything.
    2) Have you remained subscribed since you first installed the game in 2004?
    3) Did you get the free 10 year statue?

    Thanks!
    Who gives a shit when the invite process is random. Even if you were banned many times you may be randomly chosen and invited.

    Stop trying to "crack" the code on how to get invited to a beta, when there is none.

    Yep, it's funny people think that Blizzard has super algorithm to choose perfect people for wave and not just 'random' button.

    Giveaways always start closer to release, they have more to do with expac promotion than testing.

    EDIT:
    US
    Subbed
    SL has been pre-ordered since day one

    I've been playing since beta Vanilla, and have gotten in every beta since then. Not trying to brag, just give an idea of my history with WoW.
    It went out to almost every player who had cutting edge since June I think

    Hehe, don't be so serious man, it's all in good faith

    Give beta!

    It's all random the beta process, I think we all know this, except the invitations of higher end raiders. Though in all seriousness, if blizzard wants people and really thank them for their help, then invite more people.

    Why would that make sense? They already have the money of people who are subbed, they want the money of people who aren't.

    Been subbed since 2005. Never got a single alpha/beta in my life.
    So I don't expect it this time as well.
    Very unlucky or blizz just hates me.
