Last stress test was flawless for me, from the first minute. I guess they corrected issues from the 1st BWE.
Lag is very different to low FPS
Lag is things like rubberbanding, ability delay, action delay etc etc
Low FPS is having low frames per second in busy areas or areas that are complex to render.
I have a pretty rubbish rig (Q8400 @ 3.2 Ghz, 4Gb RAM, HD4650) so played on low, then balanced graphics settings, and experienced neither lag, nor low FPS
Cluck Cluck, Gibber Gibber, My Old Mans A Mushroom
pritty much other than when there was stupid amount of players around me
I didn't play completely lag free. That is impossible. But I had a pretty smooth experience in WvW and the large boss fights that zoom you out (ice dude and shadow dragon).

I played with my graphics settings on low/medium though. Any lag I got wasn't really graphics based. But going all the way up, while playable, was not ideal FPS.
never had any lag at all but how are you guys finding what the fps was i couldint find any options for that

I played with all settings maxed except shadows (medium( and anti-aliasing (off). 1900x1200, framerate rarely dipped below 30, was usually over. no noticeable lag except for maybe 2-3 spikes through the entire event.

I had only 3 instances where it lagged for a small interval and those were in my personal story instances. I reported the issue, as it was recurrent in the specific spot. I was disconnected twice at that part of the story, but the third time's the charm.
Originally posted by Lord.Bachus Who played totally lagfree even in mass events wth 50 to 100 players on your screen. Please post your system specs if you where totally lagfree. (40+ fps in mass events) It will help those people currently considering to buy a new GW2 ready pc. And yes i know the client was less optimised, but if you can do it now, you certainly can if the client gets optimised
Me except for a a few hiccups at the central keep when we had a HUGE 3 way going but I wouldnt call it lag, it was more like a slight FPS drop.

No lag most of the time, just 2 random moments with 10 or 20 secs of lag, one was the server about to shut down (Ruins of Surmia). For a stress test I think it was remarkable, and much better than the last beta. Nothing even with fraps recording a vid, yo can see it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7OAXjpxv8k&list=UU9xejmBFDNihTDk19KK_RiA&index=1&feature=plcp. Maybe you think it runs slow, it was recorded 30 frames due the full HD, so think the game for me was running perfectly fine. I also played a lot in 3D stereo (the game is amazing in 3D btw, first MMO I played this way with everething running perfect) max settings and full HD, running the game smooth. In this mode I only had a fps drop rate In a boss battle with about 30 charrs or more at the same time, maybe 25fps or so, but still playable. For a game without the official drivers released I think it was pretty nice.
I didn't get a chance to play for long, about an hour at most. It was my first time in the beta and I was really enjoying it, but graphically it did feel a little laggy, I'm putting that down to a mixture of my PC spec and an unoptimised engine though.
The game does look fantastic though, not sure I should be playing it on such high settings at 1920x1080

I did experience some lag in WvW on the first day, but after that i had no problems whatsoever (apart from login issues). I aslo played fairly 14 hours or more with everything set on max-ultra (aslo made some customization outside from the game on my graphic card),

i did have some lag friday, but that was server issues and it was all gone by saturday evening. not sure what my computers specs would have to do with that.
my computers perfromance was adequate.
my fps stayed good though throughout the beta. i can't say i had 40+ because i only notice visually when they hit about 20-25 fps and did not run a fps monitor.
I got one or two minor lag spikes, but nothing major.

Since I can't decide if you're asking for "graphical performance" or latency issues, guess I'll list both:
In W^3 I got between 10 - 20 FPS with a decent amount of people around, playing on lowest settings. However it should be noted that playing on lowest or highest settings barely made any difference.
Regarding latency I had a few spikes ofcourse, but generally there was no latency issues.

Sapphire HD6950 2gb (Was running 2x of these in CF at first, but the game runs better with the second card removed)
Corsair 8GB (2x4096MB) CL9 1600Mhz
I seriously hope they fix the performance, cause playing the game below 30 fps with a newish rig really sucks.

No one remember seeing the post on the GW2 forums about Overclocking and performance issues? They pretty much said due to client issues overclocking your CPU will NOT boast improved FPS due to client limitations, and they said for optimal performance to return all settings to stock for playing the game. Which was mind boggling to me. That is possibly why most people had performance issues regardless of system spec. But I do believe that the biggest delay in the launch of the game is optimization for all CPUs(just like windows 7, most AMD FX users would really have to wait for Win8 to come to harness the power of their FX CPUs). Since we are posting system specs:
Crosshair V Formula ROG(mobo)
amd FX 8150 O.C. 4.5ghz
HIS Iceq 6970 2gb
Although I knew the cause of my performance issue I wasn't going to underclock lol.
