hOW DO YOU get access?
Another coincidence that alpha goes live when wildstar is released.joke ofc. hyped to see new stuff.brb, gotta go ticket blizz, my lack of invite was obviously an oversight.
Wait, I'm confused.I thought the alpha had already started. Isn't that what we'd been datamining so far?Either way, I'm saddened that at this point the alpha has just barely started, because it means the beta is still far away, which means the launch is even more far away.Looks like december is gonna be after all.=/
hOW DO YOU get access?Sign Up for Future Beta Tests with Beta Opt-InOpting in isn't a guarantee of access, but if you're not opted in, there's no way you will be getting it.

That link is for applying to the beta. There is no applying to the alpha.A more accurate answer is: you can't apply. Blizzard will automatically flag battlenet accounts of friends&family of blizzard employees, and select members of the press. But the average player wont get invited. That's only for beta, and only if you applied, and only if you are unbelievably lucky.So far I've never been selected for any of em (regardless of game) but who knows. Maybe this is my lucky year?
Alpha files and client have been available for a while but the invites and servers going up are only beginning now. We can't predict when beta will begin solely on this late alpha phase. You can't really judge it on previous expansion testing.It was pretty much a given that we won't see WoD until December anyways, at least not before Blizzcon.From invite note, initial testing is for Horde, frostfire ridge.
I take it there isn't any NDA for this Alpha like the ones in the past? Nice!
i'm freakin out.... in a good way lol
Wait, I'm confused.I thought the alpha had already started. Isn't that what we'd been datamining so far?Alpha had started, yes, but that was internal (i.e. employees only).They've now branched outside of the company with friends & family and select press.
CAn I trade my hero of the storms for WoD? lol
Damn I was just thinking about how badly I wanted to play WoW again and this happens. Do I need to have game time to get an invitation or will it just appear on my Bnet screen when the beta comes out
Thanks for the live stream throw the new world of Warlords! And for the organized new database.
An autoplay twitch stream on the homepage ? WTF?

Wow, the new damage numbers look really great. So much more manageable! The way targets glow (like in D3) is very cool too. I didn't know they were adding that visual and it appears to work well. It's very cool to be able to see streaming footage of gameplay in Frostfire Ridge! I don't play Horde, so this spoils nothing for me. :)Looking forward to all the awesome stuff that you guys are going to make available to us due to being able to play in the alpha now. Keep up the great work, Wowhead team!
The in-game shop option now has Warforged Nightmare and Grinning Reaver for sale.It's too bad these are also going to be shop mounts :( Although I'm definitely buying the horse mount. Looks too good to pass up.
so two more mounts in the store...and Auto play vid on the frontpage? wtb the old site
You provide Blizzard with loads of free publicity and they let you in. Simple.
Blizzard said it would be released this fall, not winter.Fall still covers 3 out of 4 weeks of december.I just don't understand what has caused so much delay. The beta for MoP didn't took this long to arive. But for WoD, its been what, 7? 8? maybe eight months since announcement and they're barely starting alpha. A late september release is pretty much impossible now.Considering how long a beta can take, the earliest we can expect it to be out already is november or december.darn =(
