I really don't mind that Blizzard is inviting Annual Pass holders in waves.What I DO mind is that Blizzard themselves said they would be inviting AP holder based on account age and when their AP was bought.My account has been active since the 2nd day WoW was available and I bought the AP the 3rd day it was available.And yet, still no beta invite.I don't like being lied to, Blizzard :(So there can't possibly be 100,000 more people in a better position?All Blizzard said was AP holders get guaranteed Beta access, they did not say when, They could let you in on the last day of testing and they will still have held their end of the bargain.Quit being so entitled.You aren't special.
Oooo. I better get ready.
I swear... this is complete crap. My account has been active since vanilla launch day and I got AP the day it came out....He had said it was based on cumulative subscription rather than start date, so perhaps if you took a break that would be the reason for not being included yet?
Did you know? Bashiok in Orcish is Bazleok (Pronounced: BAEahz-lueayoh-kuk)Which means, roughly: "He who get's perverse pleasure by making others wait."another meaning could be "Prolonger of agony"
All Blizzard said was AP holders get guaranteed Beta access, they did not say when, They could let you in on the last day of testing and they will still have held their end of the bargain.It would likely be against their implied covenant of good faith if they just gave you access on the last day to try and meet their contractual obligations, and so they could be in breach.Quit being so entitled.You aren't special.They paid for it . They are absolutely entitled.
I haven't got an invite yet, but I'm chillin'I know I'll get in before it's over, so I'm not raging at all.Cheers.
I think blizzard gave me the wrong beta. I received the D3 Beta instead of MoP last night lol. Oh well, at least I have something to be entertained with till I receive my beta invite for MoP.Edit: Make sure you check your junk mail. Sometimes beta invites get throw into the junk box.
Quit being so entitled.You aren't special.They paid for it . They are absolutely entitled.No they are not. They are entitled to beta access, not to demand for it NOW!There is a difference.People are acting like it's a broken promise because their precious little snowflake didn't get picked for the first wave.I doubt these people even know what beta testing is, trust me, they are welcome to the first wave.Blizzard aint gonna pretty it up for you.

Look, I know everyone is frustrated (I am too), but try to keep a level head and remain.....aw screw it.WHERE'S MY INVITATION, BLIZZ?
Got my invite this morning as did my wife. 69 and 72 months of subscription and signed up for a the week it came out.
And....just got my Beta Invite lol.
If people are acting impatient because they see all the good stuff and want to see it for themselves, well, then let them wait their turn. They're promised a go, an invite will come. All good comes to those who wait.However.If blue posts claim that invites will be sent with regards to cumulative subscription and date the AP was purchased (note: NOT account age, check thelaks's link to verify), then you can expect people to start objecting if proof starts seeping out that refutes this very claim of theirs. Then it seems like Blizzard isn't being true to their own word, and then people rightfully speak up. If you say A, you've got to do A. You can't go around doing B and expect people to just let someone else cut in line - provided, of course, that this has been the case; in some cases it can be confusing when people think something like account age matters.The 'precious little snowflake' in this case is not about being picked first, but it's about the unfairness regarding the invitation order not matching the order set by Blizzard themselves. Now there is a difference.
What do the subject lines of the emails say? I'm sifting through junk mail folders now and don't want to deal with that garbage. Also, I have another question. Last beta, I remember opting, but that time, we were notified basically to check email. As with this beta, tons of obvious scam/phishing junk mail was sent (but no Beta "you were chosen!" email). However, this time, I have heard you can get info directly on your battle.net. I was just there a minute ago and I may have overlooked it... can anyone give me a link/address? Thank you.

There were around 1 million who signed up for the annual pass. They are inviting about10% of those in this wave.Some useful statistics! Thank you. Now if we know how frequent the waves are, we might hazard a guess when our invite is likely to come. Is this the second wave?Even if there's a new wave every week, it's unlikely I'll see my beta before the middle of May, as I've only been playing a year and wasn't particularly on the ball getting my annual pass, either.
I always love(insert sarcasm font) seeing those who in situations like this complain that they are not the FIRST one invited in things like this.There were around 1 million who signed up for the annual pass. They are inviting about10% of those in this wave. I could see the complaints if they invited more and the beta servers constantly crash due to loading issue.I will wait till I get my invite and then enjoy testing the new stuff. I am also looking forward to seeing what they have done with the various classes that my "mains".I will probably be in a later wave, but if so such is life. My acounty has only been active since new years day '08 with no lapses and my date for renewal of annual pass is 10/29.I know I will get my beta invite and will test the content then.You might "love" that but others do not. Maybe you don't care or even don't notice when faceslapped and lied to. Oh and please stop playing the righteous mature forum user or we might take you for a Blizzf**k employee. All the QQ aimed at this trick is well entitled to exist.Back on track now, I swear it's the last time when I'm falling for Blizzard-ish greedy corporate bull#$%^. Such people would even sell their mothers to get more money because money are their God.1. so you get Diablo 3 for free. Big deal. F**k that, I now regret that I'm getting the digital copy instead of the Collector's Edition with all the goodies (especially wings and USB).2. "Early" access to MoP Beta. Early my ass. After advertising something, they come up with "seniority", "cumulated game time" and "Anual Pass subscribing date". Why did they not set these terms when advertising the AP and its benefits? Oh, because profits wouldn't have been so big. A good lawyer is what one would need against this bunch of ************s. although I highly doubt that somewhere in the ToC of the AP these conditions are not well hidden. They can claim "early access" means before regular beta invites. Wow, I got "early access" one month before launch, übercool!Bli$$ard is getting more and more annoying and it's no wonder subscribers and sales are falling. For the moment the big fishes at the top are still holding on. Let's see for how much longer. I'm relishing the prospect of them filing in for bankruptcy one day.
Early access; Beta has been out for 2 weeks....and the AP people are getting in; not a lie there.
