Guild Wars 2 Stress Test - August 2


Arenanet just announced a final Stress Test for Guild Wars 2.  The stress test is on August 2nd, and the event timing can be found on this website.  This stress test will include active ongoing changes, meaning player experiences may not be as enjoyable as expected.  Characters and servers from BWE3 are still in the memory, and can be played.

Quote

We will be conducting a stress test on Thursday, August 2 from 12:00 Noon PACIFIC Time to 4:00 PM PACIFIC Time.

Unlike previous stress tests, we will be actively working on the game during the event, so you might experience connectivity problems or discover features that are not working as designed. Any issues you experience are a result of the rigorous conditions of the stress test, and are in no way representative of the state of the game at launch. By participating in this stress test, you’re helping us make Guild Wars 2 a better game. Thanks for your cooperation—we’ll see you in-game! ~RB2

IMHO...the final test will ultimately be the release of the game, because once they release it, will they not still work to fix problems?

From a business standpoint, this needs to be the final test.

If they have another test that has major issues, people will assume the game is unfinished.  If they have another test that is unenjoyable or not accepted well, it will drive new players off.
