Guild Wars 2 stress test #2 now live

Round two of ArenaNet's stress test for upcoming MMO Guild Wars 2 is officially underway. 

Over the next seven hours, thousands of players will be logging in and playing Guild Wars 2 to test ArenaNet's server capabilities.  The stress test beta officially began today at 11:00 a.m. PDT and will run until 6:00 p.m. PDT. 

"With your help, we can conduct important tests and address some of the issues we identified during our first Beta Weekend Event," ArenaNet said on the Guild Wars 2 Facebook page.

"During this event, all you need to do is play normally with a new or existing character on your Beta account using the same game client."

Like the last test, only the Charr, Norn, and Human races are playable.

Today's "special test event" is open only to those who have pre-purchased Guild Wars 2 and registered their accounts.
