Guild Wars 2 Stress Test Tomorrow

The Guild Wars 2 Facebook Page has word that ArenaNet is conducting another stress test for Guild Wars 2 tomorrow (thanks nin). Also, the Guild Wars 2 Website has a list of the game worlds that will be available for the game's head start later this month. Here's word on how you can help them stress out over their MMORPG sequel:

We will be conducting a stress test tomorrow Wednesday, August 15 from 12:00 Noon PACIFIC Time to 4:00 PM PACIFIC Time.

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!
--
Please note:
* The stress test is open to anyone who has pre-purchased Guild Wars 2.
* Characters will not be wiped from the previous Stress Test.

I'm gonna try my best to enjoy it, despite my reservations.

I can forgive much if the wvw ends up being solid, but they have got to improve the fov asap. It's been harped about so many times in their forums on every bwe. Poor fov is one thing I cannot accept in any game I plan on playing for a decent length of time - trumps everything.

+1

at least an FOV 90, its nearly impossible to tell how close/far away something is until you turn your view sideways.

edit: I wish people(developers) would understand that FOV and ZOOM are not the same thing!

Even though it doesn't count for much, it's fun to see how much action WvW has when everyone only has a couple hours to play.

I don't know about Blues folks... but a bunch of us from a former MMO site, that got shut down, are going to Jade Quarry. I hear that there are also several DAoC guilds going there too.

While it probably won't be the top WvW server... it should be fairly competitive (if that is what you are looking for). The folks I hang with aren't super hard core about winning... they're just out for having fun. We ranked pretty high in the BWEs.

Has the Blues News Crew decided if we are doing a Guild and what server?
As much as I hate Guild Wars, I'm really liking Guild Wars 2.

Cool so I only have to pay full box price to stress test their servers. Where do I sign up?

What makes you think you're entitled to play the game for free? There have been a lot of pre-purchases and they have all the people they need to test the servers. Why would they open up access to a freeloading little runt like you?

Are they still calling this F2P?

Was just thinking this is exactly as much 'F2P' as Diablo 3 is. Same exact model. Buy the box, online only.

RIGHT! Guild Wars 2 is a single player game that can be played online only. You got it!

Yes, I am sorry. You will have to buy the game to actually play it. Sorry about the inconvenience. And it has always-on-drm, too. Damn you, NCSoft!

What weapons were you thinking of using? Cardboard sign mainhand, paper cup offhand?

Weapon? Well, the Fat Sword of Dil'Do from the Lands of Or Gaz Ma, me thinks.

The developer has never called it free to play--ArenaNet has been trumpeting the fact that it will have no monthly fee for over 5 years dating back to before "F2P" was common in North America, but the two are not equivalent.

If forum posts or news outlets are claiming GW2 is F2P, they're misinformed. It wouldn't be the first time that people have misused terms they only loosely understand.

They could even be the same people who refer to the original Guild Wars as an MMO, another thing that ArenaNet never claimed (they labeled it a "Competitive Online Role-Playing Game" instead).

Everyone decided on their first main profession? I'm going necro, even though it needs some love.

Engineer! I love plopping down turrets, supply crate drops, and making my flamethrower go *FWOOOSH!*

Engineer was in my top 3 possible mains, will be an alt soon! Pretty different from the other professions in the use of weapon kits instead of a lot of weapons.

Oh of course. Sex worker is so OP.

Anyway, I'm gonna wait a month or so and see how things pan out before deciding whether to take the plunge.

Maybe if you took your head out of your ass, you'd be able to think more clearly about the thousands of people who pre-purchased already in order to play early during beta weekend events. Many of them are more than happy to have these stress tests (of which there have been many, about one per week) as an excuse to play for a few more hours before the release date finally comes.
There were 3 or 4 different stress test last week (1 was a short as an hour). I've been trying to log onto as many as I can. I don't try to experience anything new game play wise (want to save that for launch) but I figure the more of us that are on for the testing, the better the game will perform on launch date. Unlike the other poster you were responding to, I didn't pay so I could beta test, I beta test because I paid and want to squash bugs so I get my money's worth from day 1.
