Beta key giveaway Clarification

General
The clarification I'm currently looking for is on the beta key giveaway http://blue.mmo-champion.com/topic/415422-legion-beta-key-giveaway/ This is a post on the EU blizzard Forums i understanding that if you are redirected to the shop it means your entry was entered correctly, however the issue i am currently having is the fact that according to this Blue Post put out by blizzard 2,400 beta keys will be released to the winners of the contest. However if you are to look into the official Give-away rules attached to this contest

https://dr1kl8glf25wj.cloudfront.net/merchant_assets/000/681/872/Legion-Beta-Giveaway-Rules_2_v2.pdf

5. Contest Rules and Prize. Within ten (10) days of the Deadline, Sponsor shall randomly
select Five Thousand Two Hundred (5,200) qualified entrants who answered correctly to each of
the two (2) questions in the Blizzard’s Contest Tool to receive one (1) Legion Beta Test Key. All
Contest winners will be notified via e-mail provided in the Blizzard’s Contest Tool.

So the clarification that i was curious about is if 2,400 beta Keys or if the official rules are correct in saying 5,200 keys will be awarded. I understand not many people will read the official rules so it isn't something that is of much importance however was just something i'm curious about.

Would hope it's 2,400. Beta is already struggling really badly every time something needs testing.

Doesn't really matter apart from server load though, you either win one or you don't either way.

I dont think they would cope with any more.

Adding more people woulsn't help much.

They had specialised invites but how many of those actually raided or PvPed on the test days.

I am however surprised that they haven't had any more beta waves. I guess they must have enough.
As you spotted, there was a discrepancy in the number of beta keys given away in the contest. To clarify (and as stated in the blog), 2,400 Legion beta keys are up for grabs in the current giveaway. We have now amended the contest rules and apologise for any inconvenience.
If you already have the Beta can you enter and give the key to someone else?

I don't think so, they ask for Battle.net email on the submission which I suspect means they will be manually flagged. Can't be 100% obviously, just following the yellow brick road to the wizard..
