World of Warcraft News - Closed Beta Ending

Posted by Craig McGregor on Oct 28, 2004  | 16 comments in our forums

The official World of Warcraft site has posted that they are going to be closing down the beta servers tomorrow (Oct 29, 2004) at 3PM PDT.  Here is the official word from them:

The closed beta test is coming to an end. This Friday, October 29, at 3:00 PM PDT, the closed beta servers will go offline as we prepare to run another stress test. All active closed-beta accounts will remain active, and closed-beta testers will be receiving an email with instructions on what to do to continue playing in the stress test.

We will post more information about the stress test in the days ahead, so please stay tuned to

We also want to take this opportunity to thank the closed beta testers for their months of dedicated testing and hard work. Thanks to all of your suggestions and bug reports, World of Warcraft is closer than ever to being ready for launch!

In unrelated news, we will be bringing the beta servers down today at 6:30 PM PDT for maintenance. We estimate that the maintenance will last for one hour, and when the maintenance is complete, we?ll bring the servers back online. Please keep in mind that this is an estimate; should anything unexpected arise, we?ll post further notice in the Server Status forum. Thanks for your patience.
