My contact lets me know.

In short, this is how the process goes. WoWInterface asks for your Battle.Net email so they can add it to the list of accounts to submit to Blizzard. Blizzard, on their own time and at their discretion, flags the accounts for beta access.
What SDPhantom said.

I'm a little confused. Does this mean that there's a chance that some of those submissions will not get an invite?

Short answer, yes. It's a very small chance unless you try to sign up within the last couple months before launch. Blizzard just wants to cover their tails in case someone that applies doesn't meet their requirements or people attempt to join when they're trying to wrap things up.

If you're talking about the first batch of 50 people, I don't think they'll ignore that list.

Petrah is just being a pest. After us doing this for 10 years now, she knows how it works.

Though this is the second time they used this specific process.
They used to give you a list of keys to hand out. I guess too many people got extras and gave them to friends.

As I can say, my account was flagged for Legion a week later after Cairenn has send the first batch to Blizzard. Looks like Blizzard decide randomly.
Currently I can play the alpha / beta of Legion and at the moment I check the changes to the UI-Code. Unfortunately, at present there is the interface code does not export because the console does not open. Should this change with the next builds I will also upload according to the current snapshot, so that all have access to it.

Maybe you got selected for a random invite, no one else here seems to have gotten anything yet.

Actually I'm not. Being in my 50's my memory isn't as good as it use to be. I find myself with dozens of post-it-notes all over the place.

Bah! *hugs Petrah*

You're good, your name is on the list. All I meant was that they didn't invite any during *that particular* round, but hopefully people will get in during the next one.

I think it does, as long as you have game time on your account, it should be good.
In the past, this was a loose requirement. My account was inactive when I got into the Cataclysm beta.

I don't think Blizzard has gotten around to processing the list(s) so anyone on it that has gotten an invite has just bee lucky.
