Hearthstone beta applicants who applied before Dec 16 all accepted, no open beta yet

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft

By on December 20, 2013 at 12:15 pm

Blizzard have sent word that they’re not going to be holding the open beta for Hearthstone as expected — but instead, they’re allowing everyone who previously applied for a spot into the test.

If you applied to be part of the Hearthstone beta before Monday, December 16, check your inbox for details! If you applied after this date, tough luck I’m afraid.

Opt-ins for the current closed beta will end on January 7. Everyone who applies before that date will be allowed in before the open beta begins — which is still undecided.

I got my key last night and did the first few tutorial matches…absolute first time noob for these sort of card games.
Then I tried out splashtop to test streaming my pc desktop to my ipod which worked quite well.
So buggerit, I just bought an ipad :)

 

I got a key! I entered it in and the game hasn’t appeared on my game list? Don’t tell me because this is an America’s beta test that we Oceanic people get keys but can’t play??

Yeah, it didn’t come up for me straight away, had to log out and back in.

 

You’d be right! It has appeared on my account now.

 

I’ve been playing the last few months and it’s been a blast. Nothing to do with Oceania. You will need to download and install the latest battlenet manager though.

 

I’ve been opted in on the Blizzard site for ages and I still don’t have a key. Am I missing something obvious?

Same here, nothing yet! :(

 

Check your junk email folder. Also if you have Gmail, the beta email is in the Promotions folder. Gmail splits different Blizzard message between the Primary and Promotions folder.

Looks something like:

“Your first name” – Welcome to the Hearthston​e: Heroes of Warcraft Beta Test

Blizzard sends the invitations out in waves, not all at once, so still a chance they have not sent them all out.

 

So, yes, I was missing something obvious.

It was in the promotions tab. Thanks :D

 

I’m still waiting as well so I’d say its being sent out in waves. I think it was about 2 – 3 months ago that I applied.
