Guild Wars 2: Stress Test on June 27th

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,622MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

The Arena.Net blog has been updated with an invitation to players to help the team stress test the Guild Wars 2 servers on June 27th. The test will run from 10:00 a.m. PDT (11 MDT, 12 CDT, 1 EDT) that day.

All players who have pre-purchased Guild Wars 2 are invited to participate in our upcoming stress test. This four-hour test event will run on Wednesday, June 27th, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. PDT (GMT-7).

We won’t wipe characters for this event, so if you played in our previous betas, you can pick up right where you left off. All we need you to do is log in and have fun—leave the stress to us!

    There are times when one must ask themselves is it my passion that truly frightens you? Or your own?

    That sucks....guess I won't be playing that one.  Some of us have to actually work!  4 hour stress test in the middle of the day during a work week?  Probably be a fairly light load there, Anet.....

    Again another stress test for the game at times that are bad for stress testing.

    I find it amusing that you added 3 more american timezones but none else. :)

  • NasaNasa DenmarkPosts: 424Member Uncommon

    This stress test will start at 7pm in central europe.

    The time for closing event in the BWE's was not very EU friendly though.

    They obviously want their staff on hand to monitor things and take any action they may deem necessary if something breaks. Can't do that in the middle of the night!

    It's early evening for me so I'll be able to make it, bet that four hours goes in a flash...

  • QSatuQSatu WarsawPosts: 1,735Member Uncommon

    4 hours seems like nothing. I will probably spend like 1 hour taking screenshots and nothing else. I wonder if it will take them 2 or 3 weeks after stress test for next BWE.

    Probably the week after TSW launches is my guess.

    It's okay, for all the people at work who can't stress test it, I'll be there doing my duty and stress testing it myself *salutes*
