"The bits in red are copied over from Blizzard's own post--they're a different color to show what's specifically been added November 2nd. We know players usually associate red with things that are removed instead!"
Seems like the brawlers guild membership is gated so that it just doesn't get bombarded all at once, similar to how pinterest, turntable.fm and google+ accounts worked.I'm sure once it's official it will be a free-for-all.
As much as everyone's ready to jump on the "OMG Blizz suxorz!" bandwagon, one of the posts in the thread Apoditic posted got me thinking. It says 'someone within the guild', which to me implies that there may be NPCs who will invite you, maybe based on rep with someone like the August Celestials?After all, many players are being sent to beat up their Champions of Chi'ji on a daily basis, who's to say that they aren't impressed by your skill and invite you based on that? The BMAH invitation could be for people who want in 'nao', but aren't at the rep needed yet. Or, you know, we could all just jump to conclusions with a very limited amount of information.
