@NickAlthough it's true that Blizzard never really said how much beta time we'd be getting, they'd be skating on pretty thin ice if annual pass users got a distinctly different beta experience than what we saw in the WotLK and Cata open betas. I am not talking about legal issues, here, of course. The Annual Pass agreement is vague enough that they're protected there.However, when you have a million people signing up with a certain set of (generally reasonable based on experience) expectations and those expectations are not met, you're asking for trouble. Someone will complain and someone will report on it and that creates a PR problem that Blizzard would rather not have.I think Blizz is essentially banking on exactly what Grovin says. There will be some people who jump at the chance to actually test the beta, but they've probably got numbers that tell them only a certain percentage of players who enroll in a beta actually spend any real time in it.
