WoW World of Warcraft Cataclysm Beta Contest

A major portion of WoW (World of Warcraft) users in the United States and the U.K. were unable to access the game during the Cataclysm chapter load. The downage is expected to continue for the next 24 hours while Blizzard Entertainment prepares to launch a new chapter in the game known as Cataclysm. It is suspected that other users worldwide are also affected besides those in the U.S. and U.K. Fans await to find out who will receive the honor of beta testing the new release.

World of Warcraft Cataclysm Beta Contest

The WoW Cataclysm chapter will be beta tested by carefully chosen users. Applicants wishing to be considered are required to write a brief essay on why they think they should be selected as one of the few beta testers. Cataclysm beta contest applicants are to submit their entry for their own participation along with that of 9 of their chosen guildmates. Only 5000 beta participants will be selected during a 5-week period.

WoW World of Warcraft enthusiasts should get their entries in early so they are sure to be considered in the beta contest. Each week beginning Monday June 7, Blizzard will choose 100 winners and will repeat the process weekly ending July 12. At 10 beta testers per guild entry, that means 1000 players a week, and an end release of only 5000 Cataclysm beta test keys. Details and eligibility requirements can be found by visiting World of Warcraft Cataclysm Beta.
