Hearthstone Mount

General
So I was just roaming around Wowhead and saw that they've shown some more additions from the 5.3 PTR (Build 16825). I noticed that there was a new mount on the patch notes called the 'Hearthsteed', you get it from completing a feat on strength entitled 'Hearthstoned'.

Obviously this isn't confirmed but this feat of strength is rumoured to be obtainable by partaking in the beta test of Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft.

Is there any news about whether the Hearthstone beta will be including people from regions other than North America? I'd honestly be gutted to find out that this mount is not obtainable due to the region that they live in.
According to FAQ, first in US and some time later in "other regions"... meaning the US will possibly get the biggest bite anyway, but we will maybe get to lick the spoons :)

I don’t live in the US; can I still participate in the beta test?

We hope to launch a beta test in other game regions after the initial beta-test launch in North America, but we don’t have any specifics to announce at this time. Stay tuned for updates.


Edit: D'aawh, sniped. :(

This is the part that makes me wonder. :(
Yep, I also wonder if the information in FAQ won't become a big fa-Q*, at least here in CZ. Somewhat I never saw anybody from my surroundings to ever get invite to any beta (MoP paid access doesn't count)

*[F**k You]... tried a bit Lang Joke but I am not sure if it is read correctly the way I meant ehm ehm sry
Bleh i hate when this happens.. Probably be a hugeeeeeeeee selection of people in america get it and like quater of those people will get to test elsewhere
I signed up for the beta a couple of weeks ago :)
Signing up and getting in are two different things. Can you see them invinting none US people to a beta specifically aimed at a US first release? I have signed up for betas in the past when they first became available to sign for, however I didn't get the invite on a couple that I was luck to get until the EU beta was ready to be released.

Could be they are hedging their bets. If the US beta shows t to be a flop then atleast they don't suffer too much emnbarrasment as opposed to a world wide beta at the beginning. If it proves to be a hit then more area specific betas will follow.
It means that we, second rate customers get the shaft again. After all it's honestly suprising that they release something for US only because not like that ever happened before. Oh wait...
i signed up for the beta, and i really want this mount, and limiting it to only those who get chosen for the beta is a bit unfair i feel
By signing up, do you both just mean opting in?

Yes.
Any idea when the beta will come out yet?
