Look Who’s Got Cataclysm Beta Access!

That would be ME! I just got an e-mail from Blizzard that I’ve been selected to beta test, FINALLY! It says I’ll see the client available for download within 24 hours. I can’t wait! I was so stinking jealous every expansion as I watched others get to play the beta while I could only read about it.

That’s all I’ve got for now. Looks like you’ll be getting updates more often now.

Where’s Gitr’s Beta for WotLK?

Alright, I’ve been quiet long enough. I’ve been opted in for the beta licenses for Wrath of the Lich King for a month now. I’ve seen player blog after player blog with beta news, videos, and tips. So I ask Blizzard:

Where’s my beta code?

These are monetized sites, as this is. Why should they get a distinct advantage over their competition (me) to come up with new, limited release information? What did they do? Whose butts did they kiss? I thought I’d lay low and someone would say, “Hey Gitr brings in lots of traffic and he’s got quite a following… maybe we should send his account a beta license.”

Guess the blues or powers that be need some prodding.

I can name names, but you know who all got access to the new area. I have most of their sites in my blogroll, right where they have been since I entered the picture in 2005. Oh, but I will say this: it’s a bit fishy when the people behind the 1-70/1-80 leveling guides get to start working on their guides… their names were randomly drawn… right… I guess the people will have to wait for the free guides that I offer until the expansion is released. Start the uprising. Call for Gitr’s free guides before release.
