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

GW2 is a case of people investing so much into the hype that they get upset when people question it.

The only flaw in your argument is the sheer lack of logic. People aren't investing in the hype. We've PLAYED THE DAMN GAME. That's not hype, that's experience. Hype is when marketing makes you believe something is what it isn't in the end, and you find out after you've been duped into spending your cash. The really, truly sad part is you're doing the EXACT thing that you're trying to chastise people for doing. Rather than accept that we like the game and you don't, you instead try to assert that you're right and we're wrong, but we're just too stupid to realize that we've been 'fooled' by the hype. It's pretty pathetic on your part, incidentally.

This game really IS that good. If you don't like it, feel free to not like it, but most of the detractors that bother to post either have vague complaints that you could apply to virtually every single MMO ever created, leading to the presumption that they just don't like the genre, or they in turn make assertions about the people who do like it. (Example, the guy calling everyone who likes it bozos earlier)

Beyond that, I personally find it very odd that all these people who 'don't care about this game because it sucks' show up in every single post about it to complain about a game they have no intention of buying in the first place. I don't like the Assassin's Creed games, but you don't see me wasting my time ranting about how they're not what I enjoy in every thread that pops up about them (and I mean EVERY thread. I think Axis has quite literally not missed a single thread to bitch in, repeating the same vague complaints every time). It's just weird, bordering on obsession.
