Beta

This is weird from my perspective. I was in the Alpha and today I got a Beta invite. Technically they are different, but I would assume that if your in the Alpha, they want you to stay in the Beta.

I am not sure of my play schedule, but I would be willing to test addons for developers.

They started with a charater wipe so they are probably treating everyone as "new".

I was in Alpha and immediately had the Alpha switched to Beta. And as was mentioned, characters wiped.

Received the email an hour ago, 17 hours after this post was made.

Hubby and I both received beta invites after being in the alpha. They might have just sent them out to all who have access. I logged in right after maintenance before the beta announcement even went up. Got my email a few hours later. Hubby got his email sometime overnight and saw it this morning.

I received emails a while after both the Alpha/Beta showed up on launcher. For the Alpha it was a couple of days difference between the actual invite and the email.

Yep, as they were for a few days before the Alpha switched to Beta.

The Addons button should be visible at the character select screen if you have "installed" at least one addon to the Beta Interface\AddOns folder.

Ummm, it's like that in the live game, so why would it be different in the Beta of a new expansion?

Somebody asks that question every single expansion for exactly that reason.
