The multiplayer beta is only available to owners of Wings of Liberty or Heart of the Swarm. Players may check their in-game pledges to see how much they are entitled to before the open beta. Once the open beta begins, players may opt to play alone or in a full party of up to 32 players. In addition to the new multiplayer feature of on-screen small unit and large unit markers, players may also now rejoin their friends at any time. Players also have the ability to queue for a map if they are waiting to be matched with opponents on a server.
Blizzard has mentioned that the features in the game were not necessarily finalized before they were released, and that features would be added over time as the team got better with their estimates of how long it would take them to develop. He also expressed his regret that the battle.net protocol was not more open, and that it would be preferable to have open communication rather than only listening in to. His solution was to make it easier to communicate information via the game client, and he was very happy with the response to that, well over the requested 75% on his survey on this matter. Outside of WoW, in September 2011, Hoya noted that the team was very aware of the problems in the U.S. housing market and the financial problems among small businesses. He went on to note that WoW income had increased fifty percent more for subscriptions than those from Heart of the Swarm.
He stated Blizzard was "looking forward to the imminent cross-realm group and random group matchmaking capabilities". The response to this feature has been extremely positive. The fans have also reacted very positively to the randomized unit queue system. Overall, Hoya said that the team addresses the concerns of the fans in the WoW forums. He also stated he expects the team to continue listening to the fans and continue innovating on new ideas in order to meet the fans' requests.
