I don't find the lack of an NDA surprising at all.Did you really expect Blizzard to believe that every person who signed up for the annual pass is the type of person who would go by the rules of an NDA?

The voice of reason. How could te lack of an NDA be surprising when it's completely administratively unenforceable? Sometimes I wonder how much thought goes into what gets written here.

The NDA for Cataclysm was enforced quite well. MMO-Champion, Wowhead, WoW Insider, and many other news outlets went to great lengths to keep NDA material out of comments and forums. No enforcement = no publicity favors from Blizzard (like invitations to Press Tours).There were "leak sites" for Cataclysm, but you had to be fairly pro-active to find them, and even then the big ones got shut down by the hosts.

The NDA for Cataclysm was only for the Friends & Family Alpha - there has never been a public Beta under NDA.

What Cephas said.The moment annual pass subscribers are allowed in, the NDA is completely unenforceable because a thousand blogs with all the information will spring up. If you can't find those, you're not trying.
