If you have opted in to beta testing World of Warcraft Classic via your account management page, you may want to check the BattleNet launcher to see if you have been selected. The beta servers are currently open and taking players in to play the highly-anticipated reboot of "vanilla" WoW.

    I haven't decided on Classic yet.  My best memories from WoW was in WOTLK, not before or after it.

    I'm going to grab some popcorn and wait for the drama to unfold.  I can see lots of those rose colored glasses coming off once people start getting back into classic....

    I don't think I'll be playing Classic but I'm happy for the folks who have been waiting for this for so long. Have fun in there!

    Streamers get in.... normal people like you and me will have to wait weeks and pray to get in at any point. Can't blame Blizzard, but i would lie if i would not admit that it doesn't trigger me that streamers always get it handed to them even if they are only playing it till views die down.

    Sadly only subscribers can get in and current WoW isn't worth the subscription. I was sure as hell wasn't going to subscribe for a chance at classic beta.

    Being a huge Warcraft (RTS) fan I thought I'd love WoW when it launched. Didn't at all.
    The new races and actually interesting starter zones from TBC improved the experience enough for me to give it more of a try. I have no interest in going back to an even older World of Walking experience. I'd rather see them fix the current game.

    Yeah, totally. They should add auto travel like mobile games, maybe even level your character for you when you're offline. Get rid of specializations all together. Maybe take out all the pesky mobs that get in your way when you're trying to quest.

    Well, I would resub to play beta, but I'm not going to resub at a chance to play beta, no interest in retail.

    I'm not interested in beta testing Classic either (or any game) so I took no steps to do so.  Why would you sign up to beta test something you are not interested in beta testing and then advertise it?

    With how excited people are over WoW classic(I was once excited but not anymore).. I do expect the servers to start to see a decline after the first month wears off. People bitch an cry over lack of content yet people want a server that stops at a certain point. I get the attraction for vanilla as I was once a vanilla player myself(and there wasn't a better time in WoW's history than vanilla) but I just don't see this server holding up that long.

    I'd very happily be in there, beta testing for them. If I didn't have to pay, to beta-test. And if I didn't have to pay, just for the chance to maybe be allowed to beta-test.

    Grumble.

    I wouldnt play it, but id sell my account if i got an invite.

    And streamers get first dibs because it is free advertising and a win-win for both streamer and company.

    Streamers are distorting the gaming landscape, they are the player equivalent of the cash shop. Marketing before gaming ethos, presentation before gameplay.

    incorrect.. WotLK was literally better than all the rest of WoW Combined... Classic was literally a horrible experience for anyone who actually played it on so many levels :P
    I wouldnt play it, but id sell my account if i got an invite.

    And streamers get first dibs because it is free advertising and a win-win for both streamer and company. 
    debatable, i don't watch streamers.. but i watched one earlier for about 45min playing Classic, literally felt like taking a nap "fun and engaging gameplay?" more like autoattack simulator 2019.
