Alpha coming down, Beta going up... soon

Unread post by Wain » Tue May 10, 2016 12:21 pm

So they're bringing down the Alpha in a day or two and will be releasing the Beta. As part of this, new invites will be going out. Good luck all! Hopefully we get loads more Petopians in :)

"The current plan is to take the alpha down over the next day, send out a beta invite wave, then at 2 PM PST on Thursday wipe all of the existing characters and start beta!" woot woot :mrgreen:

Maybe after 11+ years, they'll finally give me a beta invite :P Not holding my breath, though :)

Got an invite to WoD, could I be so lucky as to get another? We'll see, I guess.

I just saw a few people get in to what I can only assume is a last minute alpha wave? Anyways, double check the dropdown in your battle.net clients just in case!

Yeah I got a beta invite, I'll start chiming in with news when I can get in. All servers are down until Thursday, supposedly.

Yep, beta invites are definitely going out. Got lucky as well, so I'll be glad to see BM Hunter for myself :D

I hope this is like the WoD beta in how they give keys to websites to give away. Thats about the only way some of us have a chance at getting in. I know people who haven't played in years still get beta invites while people who are actually interested in testing (and not early access) sit and hope. I want to get in there and test the mog system from one end to the other.

I'm not holding my breath, the only time I get in is either outside contests or that one time I promised to pay for WoW for a year. :| :mrgreen:

Snagged an alpha/beta invite! Will be test-driving survival from level 1 up, since I don't want to spoil myself too much for legion.

Still no invite here... I think the only beta I've ever gotten into is WoD and that's only because it was guaranteed because of me pre purchasing I believe.

In the same boat at the moment. I don't think it's a big deal if I don't get in, my main interest in it is mostly to do a deep, thorough look at the new transmog feature along with checking for any major changes to the current rules and previously unmoggable items. Beyond that, just the normal bug hunting and feedback.

Keeping an eye on things, though I expect nothing. The only time I've gotten to do a WoW beta was the guaranteed entry for MoP.

Pity for them, since I don't care about spoilers anymore. xD

More invites are still rolling out. I only just got my beta letter earlier. I wasn't sure till now if the invite carried over from Alpha or if they sent a fresh one. Apparently the latter.
