Were prior commitments preventing you from participating in today's stress test? Well you can crawl out of that hole you've dug for yourself, because they're doing it again on Friday, August 10th, 2012 from 4PM PST until 8PM PST. We're coming up on the home stretch for release, so hop in game and give those servers everything you've got!

Lol. If we're going to have a stress test every day, y'all might as well just release the game... :D

Going to skip (just like the most of Europe).
01:00 - 05:00 is kinda retarded. At least when it was noon PST it was a reasonable time in the US and a good time in Europe. Now it's good in the US and not doable in Europe.

They're probably just trying to get a good idea of the proportion of people that will be on during different times.

[/quote]This is a more reasonable time for us in the US. It will be 6:00 til 10:00 for me. Most people will be home from work/classes and had time to eat a decent dinner before we get dessert. :P

Sorry, but I must laugh in the face of that people that are always posting something like this: [i]No more stress tests ever, don't ask about it, delete this thread![/i]

This situations always remember me the dwarves, in all threads about that race, there are always many people swearing by God: [i]Dwarves are dead, it's impossible to make them as a playable race, forget it![/i]

Pretty much all of the recent stress tests benefited Europeans and not North Americans. I think it's fair to have at least one with a good time for NA.

Well... people from the US did complain a lot about the timing of the previous stress tests. Being an European myself, I think its only fair that this time, the tides are turned in their favor. Since Anet takes testing seriously, I think we'll have other chances in the future :)

[/quote]I am in the US and I can't understand why anyone here would complain. Oh wait yeah I do. Because people will bitch about anything.

Hell they could start the game today and open the servers and the forums will flood in with people bitching about it for one reason or another.
