Blizzard surprised the community last night with a Mists of Pandaria beta announcement, revealing the beta is beginning very soon, invitations will be sent out on a wave basis for Annual Pass subscribers, and there will be no NDA attached. No NDA means we here at WoW Insider get a nice breadth...

In previous waves I've known 1 or 2 people that have gotten in, where as this wave I know at least 16. There is some speculati...

My favorite blue poster in the Customer Service Forums has to be Belfaire. He's always got something smart and funny to say, usually in response to annoying forum trolls and others trying hard to be upset about a game. Besides his witty and crazy remarks, he also likes to drop all of us little bit...

In response to a question asking if people could share things from the Alpha, Neth says "Feel free to discuss at will."

This means you do not have to be in the beta to view the forums, but you do have to have to be in the beta to post in them. This is great news for those...

Edit: This beta e-mail has been confirmed fake by Nethaera. Sorry for the scare, ladies and gentlemen. You can disregard the rest of this post. A few trusted Alpha testers are just having fun, apparently. That'll teach us! -Alex According to Deathknight.info, European beta invitations are being se...

The beta test is beginning to ramp up. Tonight we have word that the beta downloader is in action and delivering data to those that have access to it (via WotLK Wiki). This is an obvious indicator that Blizzard has switched over to the beta testing phase, and that they are getting ready to send...

Nethaera has just come out and said that the beta selection process will be random. This is important for all of us to know: there will be no precedence or order associated with the opt-in. What does this mean? It means even if you sign up tomorrow you have a chance to get in, and that all of us who...

MMO Champion (and a few of our tipsters -- thanks!) is reporting that the European WoW site has opened up registration for the Wrath of the Lich King beta. I wasn't able to sign in with my trial account (created for the Dingstravaganza a while back), but there's no question that the page is up (in...
