Stress test update

VolkonVolkon Sterling, VAPosts: 3,788Member

Got in first try, no issues. Loaded into L.A., it was a little slow but nothing to care about. Subsequent loads into L.A. are speedy. The skill point in the Charr area by Ashford something-or-other is working now.

     PvP doesn't seem to be working currently.

    Engineer update : The major trait in the explosion line that adds burning to explosions,  DOESN'T work on Explosive Shot. ( Was a little confusion last Beta,  some folks thought it did )

    Like clockwork, it's over. Wow, that didn't feel like a stress test. I saw a little lag in a personal story line that I joined and that was it, period. A couple skill points that weren't working in the BWE were fixed, so I nabbed them. It was hard to reign things in a and not do too much knowing it'll soon be deleted, but you should have seen my furry butt on the diving board. I was a fuzzy god.

    Didn't really have any issues here either. I once had a lil lag (like, 0.5 seconds lag), for like 5 minutes. The rest was completely stable. I played for the full 7 hours.

    I spent my time doing jumping puzzles, mostly. The one in the mists definitely was the hardest one. Not really any good loot though. Just some white quality armor that I couldn't even use.

    I would like to thank Anet for scheduling this stress test just after dinner time GMT for all my West European players. A nice long evening of fun was had. Keep it up.

    There is NO miracle patch.

    95% of what you see in beta won't change by launch.

    Hope is not a stategy.

    My only problem this time was a bit of graphical lag, but i am told the game is still CPU bond and don't use all the computer resources so i am not extremily worried i'll have to spend more money to rebuild my rig.

     

    Apart that bit , it went like a dream, and i discovered i like to be a big cat with a gun.

    I didnt have any issue either, only problem was the few time to play :S

    2 problems, 1 - not enough time to play!! man that was fun. But 2 out of 3 times my PvP load froze at 95% so possibly the server that deals with all the joins was faslling over?

     

    so much fun LOVE THIS GAME!!

    I loved this stress test, It was much smoother than the BWE, and i felt improvement in the fps too.

    I think so as well. Way better the BWE!

    Yeah. The time absolutely flew by at warp speed!

    I've participated in a number of MMO betas in recent years where it's been a slog to get through 7 hours of testing. Even after 38 hours of time in BWE1, I felt compelled to take full advantage of the 7 hours of stress testing today, maybe spending 8 minutes away from the game through the duration of the test and just could not get enough!

    I had a few issues today that I didn't experience during BWE1, so I'm guessing they had different configurations for different servers today and I got one of the short straws, but they were just a few minor annoyances that were al fixed with in a few minutes.

    I really hope the more optimistic release estimates are correct, because I really want to be playing this game when ever I want, for as long as I want, very, very soon. :)
