Guild Wars 2 Stress Test Today

The Guild Wars 2 Facebook Page announces plans for a four-hour stress test today for Guild Wars 2, though this may not be a smooth experience due to how they are doing this (thanks VG247). Here's word:

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! ~RB2

I don't know what I hate more: when people are being unnecessarily negative, or when they occasionally find something they like and don't tolerate anyone not liking it. And you'll never be able to tell them GW2 was no good because it has no subscriber numbers, only total sales, and will have no available concurrency numbers.

Almost as bad as the guy who says he doesn't like it as if that's supposed to matter to anyone, other people don't care and move on but he returns later because he can't tolerate them enjoying it when he doesn't. And you'll never be able to tell him it was good to them because he will always have some reason why they aren't having fun or make up some garbage about why the sales figures being ginned up.

I guarantee you 90% of the people shilling GW2 won't even be playing a significant number of hours three months out and will have excuses like "Well at least there's no fee I'm paying, I got my money's worth!

There is no shilling going on. You can't try to pass off perfectly good logic as ridiculous with sarcasm. If someone get 20 days of good solid fun out of it then I would consider that a pretty good deal and the fact that there aren't any sub fees is just icing on the cake. Beats sitting around cataloging what my friends are having fun with on their steam list so I can use it as forum fight ammunition.
