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 have time for kids needing spoon fed rolling. If you spent half the time in comprehension mode of what was being said, we wouldn't have to LAY IT OUT for you.

1st of all Arenanet posts have been plastered excessively with negative feedback on their forums every BWE. Ask yourself why they keep "Closing" the forums. Understand the implications? Or gonna make some lame excuse or something for them? My bet is most of the most rabbid defenders aren't even in the BWE's and have never even read their forums, especially not throughtout all the BWEs.

2nd of all, most of the criticisms are DIRECTLY related to the fact it's a SEQUEL. GW2 isnt Guildwars. You can't make a "sequel" and gut every gameplay mechanic and character customization that was the highlight of the first!' A sequel, at the very least, should IMPROVE UPON what made the original... Original! Not be gutted and dumbed down to a palty list of unlockable barely customizable skills.

If you don't understand specifically what I'm saying here, go PLAY THE PREQUEL GUILDWARS. You cannot possibly comprehend the glaring dumbed down differences when you have absolutely no experience with one or both games.

3rd the gameplay is everything stale in current mmos. Get this, clear that, run here, get experience, jump in a group of dudes fighting some big monster, get more experience. Now I don't have a problem with that, that's what MMO types are. But it's NOT REVOLUTIONARY, Unique, engrossing, or requiring anything more than just being there. This is a "level up" forumula, play till leveled then forget about the game. In other words, when people foam at the mouth droning on about how this "formula" is so amazing, they are undoubtedly new with the genre. Being new is also fine, but don't try convincing me or other who have been around. And PvP will not be the saving grace, see 5th.

4th this bland formula is repeated until endgame. So you better totally love this worn out MMO formula, because it doesnt change at all - ever.

5th, because there is virtually no character customisation (read "2nd") PVP can only be described as a fun distraction, and cannot compare even remotely to the original. YMMV with this, when you have real people to play against it adds a level of fun regardless of how much you can do or how many skills are available.

What it boils down to is Guildwars2 is not a comparable or worthy successor to Guildwars, just like D3 is not what diablo vets expected and you can see the fallout.

And I've posted 10x this type of feedback directly to Arenanet, but if you ever read the forums you'll what's up, you wouldn't need me to spoon feed you. I hoped they'd change direction or at least take the masses of complaints seriously, It's in my best interest to see it succeed because I loved GW1 and despise these monygrubbing cannabilisations to make a dumbed down formula so it appeals to less savvy or experienced gamers.

Now, if you reply keep these in mind with the nature of my post:
1st - How did you miss the remarkable masses of negative feedback in the forums if you ACTUALLY PLAYED?
2nd - What do YOU expect in a sequel exactly? What about GW2 do you like more than GW1?
3rd - What part of GW2 gameplay do you think will keep you enjoying the game for more than a couple months?
4th - Where at higher levels do you think the forumla changes? Where does your character skills look and play different from only a handful of other possibilities?
5th - What makes PVP so fun to you? How does it differ from GW1?


If you cannot answer these questions posed DIRECTLY to my feedback, you got NOTHING to say to me. Do not waste our time here. If you like GW2 for what it is, by all means enjoy it. But I'm fully expecting zero sensible replies, likely only the trollish "your reasons are either vague or flat out bullshit, like you didn't play the game past lvl 3 and don't even know what you're talking about" or something irrelevant, which is glaring sign the troll does in fact have no experience or valid opinions in this matter.
