That said, even if you don't make it early on in the beta, Blizzard notes that there will be a series of stress tests throughout the summer, with increasing numbers of players being invited to participate.
Go to the BattleNet World of Warcraft page and down under the video on the left side under Region/Account, click on the drop down menu and click on Beta: Classic.

Whether or not Blizzard will follow Jagex's lead and roll out fresh new updates that remain true to the Classic experience - perhaps via an Old School RuneScape-like player polling system - remains to be seen.
The first server stress test will be taking place on the 22nd and 23rd of May.
To fill the ranks of our beta and stress tests, we will choose players from the WoW Classic beta and from the standard Warcraft beta that meet particular registration criteria.

On those dates and times, players will get to begin exploring the continents of Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms as they fight for the Horde or the Alliance.
Some players might have already experienced and struggled with Vanilla WoW thanks to its demo a year ago but WoW Classic will be rolling out its closed beta tests from May 16, to help ready the game for its August release.
