ArenaNet has just announced on Facebook that there will be another stress test tomorrow, Sunday, August 12 from 11:00 AM Pacific to 12:00 PM (Noon) Pacific.

Quote

REMEMBER: 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!

Please note:
* The stress test is open to anyone who has pre-purchased Guild Wars 2.
* Characters will not be wiped from the previous Stress Test.

Yeah, it's pretty awesome. Nothing like a bad launch to leave a bad taste in player's mouths these days. Error 37 anyone? lol

[/quote] The stress test is probably to check if they still have the lag issues with their servers. Remember the extreme lag on the 10th wasn't intended.

It normally takes me one hour to log in... Damn, don't think I'll be playing this time.

At just an hour long, and during my time zone's sleep hours, I'll skip on this. Have fun to everyone that does it.

Funny thing is. I had to leave one hour before the last one ended. I guess ArenaNet was aware of this. Thanks Anet! My last hour of PvP will be possible!

1hour OWG! let me clear my schedule at 4am and make sure I help you guys out for THAT ENTIRE HOUR when I could be doing something completely useless like sleep...  

You could at least offer an incentive for people that help you out Anet and give them a little more time to enjoy what is most likely a buggy experience.

Someone is a bit entitled aren't they. When would you propose they have it? They are doing it by their schedule. Not the worlds. No matter when they have it; it will clash with someone's schedule.

To those complaining about the fact the test is one hour, keep in mind a couple things: Firstly, it's a stress test, for providing server/performance data, the intent is not to give everyone extra time to play (though it is of course the main reason for players participating). Secondly, this is happening on a Sunday. It's not as if ArenaNet have no lives outside of game development, and anything happening on a weekend means the devs are mostly likely taking time out of their weekends to work on the game. Just thought I'd say that, sorry if it comes off as overly agressive. </rant>

I for one am completely ecstatic. One hour is better than nothing! Clearly it's short because they'll be checking to see if the unintended lag from the 10th is resolved.

Hopefully I'll be able to connect and play (even if it is with lag) for that hour. My brother's laptop (my old one) is awful and I invited him over so he could try the game out tomorrow XD.

Anet is working weekends for this, so I sincerely doubt your convenience was at the top of their worries.
