At first, I couldn't even log in. And then I decided to create a new character (as I wanted to try Thief). So, I created a new sylvari (didn't really care how she looked), and when the intro started, I pressed "skip" (I'll watch those when the game releases). And had a nice black screen with a blinking "skip" button. Waited for about 5 minutes, closed the client and started it again. I noticed the character had been made and was waiting for me in that starting dream. So, I selected her, and.... nothing. I couldn't do anything but close the client again.
Finally, after about 30 minutes I managed to get in....
Beside those starting problems, the only thing that didn't work was the Black Lion's Trading House. I couldn't sell, I couldn't buy, the gemshop was non-existent. Even after the upgrade, it still didn't work.
I only had one goal this stress test, I wanted to get a daily reward! After I had that, I collapsed and went to bed (or rather, the other way around, but barely!)
But these 2 hours impressed upon me that I simply want to play the game and explore that map!
