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 said quite clearly what MANY expected. Those who DID play GW1 and aren't content to have a couple month romp with the same old bland mmo garbage. A sequel worth of the name "Guild Wars".

I REPEAT for those who consistently miss the only message worth reading in this entire thread:

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.

Not a rehash, not a carbon copy, not a redo of GW1. An improvement on what the original was. And if you don't know what made GW1 special, I cannot help you.

I mean by your supposed accolades you supposedly do, but then I read your bullet points and think there's something missing here, or maybe you really are just happy with the formula and that's fine.

But there's lots of people who defended the crap outta D3 when they dumbed down the class spec, you see where that game is now don't ya? Many guys sound ALOT like those people defending D3... like somehow GW2 will fix all their sad panda faces when they realized eventually that D3 is a giant disappointment.

Anyway.. there's too many mmo types with this same stale forumula. Many GW1 vets did not expect GuildWars 2 to follow that path - but they have.

On your points...

1. Arenanets forums HAVE been plastered with disappointment. Maybe you weren't involved in the forums much. They'll come up again(why again are they taken down???), and hopefully have all the past posts. Somehow I don't think they will tho.. right?

2. To say GW2 isn't dumbed down is suspect man, seriously. Hell you throw most people the original GW1 and they'll be confused even after they hit level 20 there's so much to learn. GW2... ya just hop in and kill shit you're AWESOME!

3. I won't lame-out and answer a question with a question. If you don't know those reasons, I don't see how you could have played much at all. Simple as that.

4. Again, I won't answer a question with a question. The endgame in GW1 was about taking your hard earned multi skilled combos and going head to head on teams. The game is called G U I L D W A R S. Now if you think GW2 with its few class skills unlocked for everyone will come even close to what GW1 pulled off, you are surely mistaken.

5. EXTENSIVE Traits? That's so laughable Optic, honest. And to even compare those to GW1 skill deck like its superior? Cmon dude, maybe some of these people are used to a handful of fannies banding together repeating the wrong same shit and feeling like they got away with it, but with me they wont - never.

My beef is they are trying to appeal to the easy_peasy_mmo and throwing away what made the original great. Nothing more to it. Have a blast for a couple months at best, you will remember I told you so.

Edit: this sounds harsher than it's meant Optic. I do appreciate your thought-out reply, the trolls are getting a bit annoying.

And as for your 'perception' of who I speak for, I don't recall ever speaking for anyone but myself and MY admittedly circle of friends.. hmm just like you guys! But if my confidence in what I'm saying messes with confidence in yours, I cannot help you there.
