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

My whole point. The ONLY point I'm making here, is that, right now, negative opinions for just about any title except GW2 are perfectly accepted and are not challenged

I've been trying to sit this out as I normally respect your opinions but this is just utter nonsense, not to mention totally offbase. I can think of about a handful of total people on the entire website who have ever said anything negative about Guild Wars 2 and half of them have been so vague as to leave one wondering if they even played it. Despite that fact I try to assume they are based in experience and most of the responses I've seen have been pretty patient and reasonable in just posting their own thoughts on why they had fun with it. You said earlier that trolls will be trolls but you seemingly lump everyone else in when it's a few people being silly and telling others to shut up or whatever. To be blunt you also trolled quite a bit in here with several insulting implications so if people were painting you with the same brush they would just dismiss you as a hater.

You said you didn't like Guild Wars 2, ok fair enough. I doubt you're going to lose sleep over me buying a copy anyway and vice versa. I'm not sure where the rest of this manufactured drama comes from because I don't see a hidden standard here. It has fans, detractors and trolls like...well click on any topic on your left there and see. Let's all move on, shall we? Pretty soon we can all bitch about how bad the launch was and the lack of mass stress testing and be lectured that we were warned by others, everyone will be happy
