It shouldn't be too big of a surprise that content creators will get first dibs.... and then hopefully everyone else will slowly join in as the stress tests come out.
Good luck testing everyone! Hope as many of the big bugs get found as possible.
I mean watching streamers play actually makes me want to play it less, I go for that content few can play and letting some get a piece of the cake first makes the cake less special when you get some. Especially when you just have to be popular (yay back to high school) to get in. Honestly puts a sour taste in my mouth.
I don't mind streamers getting in, but yeah they should definitely get the regular folk in soon also. Especially those like myself and others who have posted here, who have had active accounts since the beginning. I can understand not getting an invite the second it opens, but I should think soon (next few weeks). It's just bad PR otherwise, because people like here on Wowhead will start talking online, etc. Of course Blizz doesn't have a clue how to handle PR so I wouldn't be surprised.
Get ready... "I've played since 634bc and I still didn't get beta access" incoming
Just here with a friendly reminder that just cause your account has been active since 2004 doesn't guarantee beta access. Don't know where they said that but it's never the case lol
but why is it a separate OPT ?
He just ran past someone called "Panser". Unless some other early-invite person felt like claiming that name, we know who that is.Nothing against her whatsoever, but yeah, normal people are just gonna have to wait ...
pick meee pick meeee noowww
I just hope for the benefit of Classic that there are a good chunk of players who played classic back in the days.
I was really hoping they wouldn't beta Classic. All the PTR and beta stuff really spoils and ruins new retail wow patches and expansions, and takes away any surprise or suspense. Would have been really cool for Classic to have avoided that and just let everyone jump in and play on day 1.Remember when experiencing a video game for the first time was an adventure full of intrigue and surprise? And for multiplayer games, a shared learning experience? Wowhead doesn't.
Please give me a key. I love the classic!
I'm a normal person, I've played since launch and let my account lapse a few times (tyvm MoP & WoD).I got an invite.So I'm going to go ahead and say while it's likely content creators get invites (because obviously), they aren't the only ones.Of course the vocal ones are going to be the ones complaining they didn't get an invite. AKA 90% of the comments.It's not a conspiracy, it's good marketing and publicity..
I'm not a streamer or youtuber and I got invite. Your logic is flawed.
I might missed off the first invites as only yesterday evening noticed that Classic had separate beta sign up. But who knows, just because i'm so hyped, might not get it :D Tho previously got all the beta access to WoW xpacs, when applied to them, was in HotS alpha, so kinda feels right to get this one as well, but can't take things for granted.
