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
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."
