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

And leveling up wasn't the focus on GW1, but ya you don't seem to realize that either.

I'm really starting to think you didn't play much of GW2 if you can say that about GW1 and think that GW2 is all about leveling given that you get downleveled in many areas to suit the content of the zone. You get trait and item bonuses but those get downscaled as well. Rushing to level to 80 asap won't be as important as it is in many other MMOs.

When I read back through this thread you know what I noticed. Almost every one of the GW2 fanatics posted nothing but rants, insults and generalizations, and most were towards me while giving no accolades to their beloved game.

Oh puh-lease, you were right in the thick of it calling people kids or trolls and thinking that people who have played a game that they like but that you don't uninformed idiots who are new to gaming. Rather than stating that you wished GW2 was more like GW1 and didn't like it (as Horrorscope did), you came in here treating people like zealous, blind fanboys who didn't know any better.

Why bother giving accolades when people who liked GW2 stated that they did and already bought it? Doesn't that pretty much say, "I like what's in GW2 so I bought a copy"? I personally have posted in prior threads on Blues about what I really liked about GW2 and what I didn't like about it. Even with it's flaws, I had a lot of fun with my friends during the BWEs and will most likely continue to do so when it's released.

So ya, stuff it. Answer my question about PvX.
Sure I know all about PvX. Don't act like it's some super elite site when it's simply a wiki of various copy & paste of Builds of the Months. You want to compare a wiki of all the various builds of a game that's been released for years to a game that has yet to come out yet? Oh-kay...

But sure I'll give it a shot. Based on all the various random sites that I've been following, there's a ton of build talk (especially for sPvP and WvWvW) and there's already a big handfull of diffferent sites with build calculators for the betas (off the top of my head, there's,,,,,, and many more that I can't remember the URLs to.) At alone, there's 300+ listed builds (and that's not even counting the private ones) based off of the betas. BETAS being the important word here. I'm sure that once the game comes out there'll be even more builds and that's only one build calculator site and not even the most popular one (since it isn't updated to the newest BWE).

No, there probably won't ever be a wiki for the GW2 builds cause there needs to be a UI to handle it based on how it all works. I'm not really getting what your point is with the whole PvX thing.

As a sidenote: here's a listing of the various gaming communities and guilds that'll be making guilds and picking servers as their homeworld strictly for World vs World vs World:
