Getting into the World of Warcraft: Cataclysm beta is all about having fun and experiencing new content, right? Wrong! Machinima.com sets Cataclysm beta testers straight in this guide to winning the World of Warcraft: Cataclysm beta test.

Beta testing is your chance to have a say in what direction a game goes in, while helping the developers discover bugs and exploits that could ruin the game for others upon release. Sure you still get to experience new content before everyone else, but that's just a bonus for actually working to make the game better.

It's not a demo, to see if you want to purchase the game. It's not the final game either, so complaining about bugs and balance instead of reporting them is an exercise in futility.

If that doesn't make any sense to you, you probably shouldn't opt-in to beta.
