Betcha can’t guess who it was! Betcha betcha betcha! OK, it was ME! YAY ME! Yep, I get to partake in an early sneak peak at World of Warcraft starting tomorrow.
Starting tomorrow, September 2nd at 12:00 noon PDT, stress test beta participants will be able to create their World of Warcraft accounts and begin playing the game. Their participation will help us optimize our account-creation and server infrastructure, and enable us to deliver the best online experience possible when the game launches later this year. We want to thank everyone who applied for the stress test beta, and we look forward to seeing the new testers online tomorrow when the stress test beta starts.
Admittedly, I didn’t get into the beta proper and the stress test is only good for a week’s worth of play, but at least I get to try it out before it’s released as this is one of the few MMORPG’s I’ve been seriously looking forward to for a long time now. So, I’m your basic happy camper right now.
Boy am I glad I decided to take Friday off and have a four day weekend!
