250,000 more Mists Of Pandaria beta invites have been flown out into email inboxes today.
Bashiok posted last night — to the official forums — that once again a rather substantial wave of beta invites has been distributed around the World Of Warcraft Annual Pass holders. From previous estimates it seems 50% of all pass holders should have received an invite after this wave is complete.
Unless the Annual Pass has had a massive surge of new buyers as the beta madness has taken hold of the community.
Keep your hair on, those who are still waiting, Blizzard are churning out the invites, yours will be “coming soon.”[tm]
After initial server testing, it seems that Blizzard are confident that their servers can take massive influxes of invites. With waves this big we can expect to see all beta invites to be distributed within the next few weeks.
With such a large portion of the beta testing community charging at MoP to get their hands all over it, how long until beta actually ends? I’m sticking by my bet of two months, when you have over one million QA testers you are sure to move substantially faster than previous betas.
Make sure to tune into Legendary this evening as we cover all the beta invites over the past weeks along with the bundles of the weeks World Of Warcrafts news.
Do you feel like the invites are moving fast enough or are they not moving fast enough at all?
That’s right — we’re in the process of sending 250,000 additional beta-test invites to Annual Pass holders. Keep an eye on your email and Battle.net account for an invitation to come test Mists of Pandaria with us.As with previous waves, it’s going to take a while for the invites to process, so we recommend checking your games list in Battle.net Account Management to see whether yours has arrived yet. Once it does, you’ll see the Mists of Pandaria beta client available for download from there. We expect this entire wave to take a day or so to complete.We appreciate the enthusiasm of everyone who signed up for the World of Warcraft Annual Pass, and we’re working hard to get you into the beta. We know you’re excited to explore Pandaria and test the new content, and we’ll keep you posted here in the forums when we’re ready to send out another wave.</div>
