Stress Test

ArenaNet have announced that there will be a stress test from Noon – 4pm PST on Thursday August 2nd. See their post on Facebook for all the details.

We will be conducting a stress test on Thursday, August 2 from 12:00 Noon PACIFIC Time to 4:00 PM PACIFIC Time.

Unlike previous stress tests, we will be actively working on the game during the event, so you might experience connectivity problems or discover features that are not working as designed. Any issues you experience are a result of the rigorous conditions of the stress test, and are in no way representative of the state of the game at launch. By participating in this stress test, you’re helping us make Guild Wars 2 a better game. Thanks for your cooperation—we’ll see you in-game!

  • woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooot :twisted:

  • I am confused. Are we invited to this stress test? If not well beta is over what does that have to do with us?

    • Yes. Technically, this won’t be as stable as a beta test. If I’m not mistaken, judging by the title, the “stress” test is basically testing out their equipment and servers to see if they can handle the load of hundreds of thousands of people in preparation for launch.

      Our last chance to get our hands on the game before launch. ;)
