Early beta access. Or earlier beta access.
Alright we have to have the annual pass, but at least it’s something.
Originally from Blizz –
I am participating in the World of Warcraft Annual Pass promotion; when do I begin testing?
We’re inviting Annual Pass holders in waves over the course of the beta test, and will be ramping up the number of invites we send as quickly as possible. We’ll be inviting Annual Pass holders based on several factors, including how long your World of Warcraft account has been active and when you signed up for the Annual Pass. Keep an eye on your Battle.net account and email for your invite to join the beta test.
Having played since launch it’s looking fine by me, this. The (no) lifers could do with something else for the actual live game as well, mind you!
