It just occurred to me that Beta Key allocation is far from random.
How many people in and out of game do you know that got into Beta? I personally know 1 person, and his wasn't a random Beta allocation, he got into "Friends & Family" Alpha.
I read quite a few blogs, roughly the same number as that of people I know in game.
So making a comparison I'd expect maybe 1 or 2 bloggers to have received a Beta Key - if that!
But there seems to be a disproportionate number of bloggers that have gotten into Beta. Hmmmmm
What's the best kind of publicity? Free of course!
Where's my Beta key Blizz? Oh yeah, my blog is anonymous - DOH!
