Guild Wars 2 beta test announced to stress the servers
ArenaNet needs your help to stress Guild Wars 2's servers. Although they are "very pleased" with how the servers performed during the second Beta Weekend Event, ArenaNet is looking to gather additional data on how they operate under load before the next Weekend Event.
To do so, the company has announced that another test day will be scheduled for Wednesday, June 27th. This event will be available for all players who have pre-purchased Guild Wars 2. The four-hour planned test event will run from 10 am to 2 pm PDT.
Characters won't be wiped for this event, so if you have participated in the previous betas, you can pick up where you left off.
Once again, there was no mention of when Guild Wars 2 will launch, but I'm sure which each passing beta event, patience wears thinner and thinner. Still, I'd prefer they work out all of the kinks to ensure server stability at launch. Nothing is worse than purchasing an MMO and having the servers down on launch day; just ask Blizzard who recently had to guarantee refunds for Diablo 3 players in South Korea.
