WarCraft III Beta Tomorrow

GameSpot reports that the beta test of WarCraft III: Reign of Chaos, the 3D role-playing RTS by Blizzard, is to commence tomorrow. Backing that up is the fact that Blizzard's ftp server already offers some beta patches for download, but there is no information when the 5,000 selected testers will be notified about their acceptance into the program. Update: Blizzard sends along a note that selected testers (out of a total of 100,000 applications) will receive an email confirming their participation, and "The Beta discs have been sent via Federal Express and will arrive in the next few days."

Are you kidding? 3 people out of all the Blue's News readers and you think that's high? That's high! (in the inebriated sense).

I suppose that Blizzard can take as long as they want to notify the beta testers, but I seriously doubt it takes more than a few hours to send out 5000 e-mails if they put their minds to it - spammers do 100 times that on a regular basis.

Rest assured, the e-mails really are out, the CDs really are on the way, and most likely you really are going to have to wait for a retail copy if you didn't get an e-mail. If it makes you feel any better, I prefer single-player and didn't realize this was battle.net only when I signed up. C'est la vie.

Don't worry. I doubt the e-mails have been sent yet. The sheer percentage of people who replied to this thread who say they received their e-mail is way too high to be true.

So, for all those who haven't received an e-mail yet, relax, it may still come!

The Diablo 2 beta-stress test was a download not a cd. But you had an on-line user agreement. I always received a NDA with all beta tests from big name companies. The little guys are different (sometimes) but usually they have some type of NDA also.

So as soon as one of you guys gets it posted to your FTP site e-mail me. Otherwise I will have to troll Direct Connect hubs.

Re: is there a NDA on this?

The e-mail didn't specify, so we won't know until people start receiving the CDs. I'd guess they'd apply the same process they've used in prior beta tests, so anyone who participated on one of those might know.

I applied in hopes of seeing something I'll like in the game. To this day I still "dont get" what the big deal is about Warcraft.

Nooooo, it cannot be. The message on Blizzard.com says e-mails will be recieved within the "next few days" and they *do* have 5,000 of them to send... I'm still clutching on to hope, damn you all!!

I just got my e-mail from Blizzard, so if you don't have a little treat in your inbox, you probably didn't make the cut.

4,999 testers, because my spot is already on hold for me, I believe. The voices told me so.

I don't remember making this post, but I might as well have some text here. This game looks neat, but I think it's doomed to be among the most cheated-on games within a year of its release...we've all seen what happened to Diablo 2. Hopefully they can figure something out to prevent the mistakes of the past.
