A lot of whining about a stress test. The whole point of this is to blow the servers up so that they can be more prepared come launch.

Not totally, the ultimate point is hoping they don't blow up so you can go live. But face it no matter how many issues this or Tera have, the date is set it's shipping ready or not.

Servers were not ready.

I doubt that their goal is to have zero wait at launch for everyone. That kind of readiness would imply a lot of hardware (and money) wasted on every single other day until the next big thing launches. Rather than getting perfect turnaround they'd probably aim for a "good enough" point that keeps people sufficiently close to happy and the game uploaded to everyone within a reasonable window. Overstress conditions would be good data to have to identify the amount of expansion needed.
