Wrath of the Lich King Beta

Well, it’s official Wrath of the Lich King beta is officially started! Well, rather it’s officially time to sign up. Blizzard recently announced the launch of the closed beta as well as the sign up forms. It’s the most simplistic opt-in form I think I’ve ever seen an MMO do.

Simply head over to the front page of WorldofWarcraft.com or take this link directly to your account login screen, Beta Opt-in. Log into your account, accept the beta terms of service and you’re done! As for the criteria to get in…well, that will be a bit tricky.

Blizzard changes some of the requirements between betas and such, but without question Blizzard will require all potential beta applications…

  1. be an active subscriber
  2. you have been a subscribing player for at least 6 months
  3. no known connections to media outlets or websites (like this one! hopefully blizzard doesn’t find me out!)
  4. minimal suspensions / black marks against your account for violation of the terms of service

As far as all the real fine-tooth details go, I think anyone’s guess is as good as mine. Either way, there is sure to be tons upon tons of applications, and a very select number chosen for this first phase of closed beta.

However, if you don’t get in don’t worry! Blizzard will increase the number of beta participants as the game progresses into new phases. Up to the point they will hold the open beta and everyone can get a chance to try it out!

    I would like to inform all of u that the Beta Opt-in. link show takes you to an https page not the normal wow http page. So my guess this is a scam & watch out

    and I’d like to inform you that if this indeed were a “scam” I’d simply delete your post and ban your IP.

    But, it’s not. I’m providing the links that blizzard posted on their site here. Additionally, I think it’s worth pointing out that HTTPS stands for…

    Hypertext Transfer Protocol over Secure Socket Layer

    Meaning hackers or other malicious types that intended to compromise the domain will have a much more difficult time in doing so. Thanks for your concern.

    furthermore, here is the “normal” http link you reference.

    http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/account/

    click that and see where it redirects you…or hell, if you don’t believe that link either just go to http://www.worldofwarcraft.com and the account login page and see the page it redirects to. (I’ll give you a hint, it’s the https login page I linked in my original post)

    So next time you want to come on my site spouting off about your advanced knowledge of internet protocol take 1 second to verify your sources before you make a fool out of yourself.

    That’s all she wrote!

    WuGy has just been smashed by logic…
