I suppose they want a quick check-up on whatever fixes they made to eliminate the lag from the last test. Not to forget that with so many tests recently, they need time to analyze their data and polish up the game.

 

Meh, I'll just grab some screenshots to help finalize my characters' appearances and log out.

4 hours is to much for what they are trying to test.  Just get the initial rush of logins to isolate the lag issues from login servers.  However I won't be testing as usual because I will be working once again.

They are actually testing their network structure that made for some good lag, and the login servers. They probably have patched it and need the full large live environment to test it. (would be unrealistic to test it in the test environment as there probably these problems didnt excist in the first place)

 

Now mind you, i dont mind helping them out by playing with the login servers for an hour, but....

 

They could have rewarded our loyalty with a few more hours of playtime, as they will be in the office anyway this sunday

At this rate, we'll be playing every second day up to launch. ;)

     As much as i love this game i just cant see a mere 1 hr to play as being worth bothering with. Especially since tbh it isnt likely we will even get 1 hr out of it given the expected log in issues. I mean realistically i dont see what will likely turn out to be 1/2 hr of game time as a worthwhile invesment of my time given that thier isnt alot you can accomplish in such a short time.

Its a test, its not for your amusement, its for making this game even better.  This sounds a little selfish

I'm actually in agreement here. Betas and stress tests are for testing.
Even tho im not sold on the game, I will use my beta pass to contribute to testing as provided.

You know what? Lag and server crashes are a good thing in beta, it shows the Server(s) limitations and where additional solutions need to be devised and implemented.

I think they will make it a real STRESS test. Probably polishing last log in issues.

Dont expect much playing, or even logging in

I'll be logging in. Everyone who can should. Don't you want all the kinks to be fixed for launch? Login and help make it a better game. Help them now, help yourself later.

If I get to see how the game looks without post processing enabled (as seen in another thread) I'll be happy enough.

Nice! got my new gfx card installed yesterday. I'm willing to help Anet test their servers as long as I get some time in game to see how my new card compares :)

     If i really thought my one log in would make a significant difference, i may be more inclined but i find that rather unlikely. Besides, to asume that most people arent selfish is pretty naive. If you want lots of people to log in, you need to give people an incentive to do so. A half hour to 45 mins isnt alot of incentive for people to go out of thier way to make time to participate.

     You may not agree with the reason for why people do what they do, but the fact is people respond better when apealing to thier self interest. If Arenanet was smart they would take advantage of that for everyone's own good. If you expect people to make choices based on altruistic intentions, you are going to go through life incredibly dissapointed and bitter from the constant let downs. Fact is people suck. The way i see it is if Arenanet seriously really needed tons of people to log in for this, they would have given an incentive to do so.

     I dont think The people who made this decision were idiots. I just think they dont actually want as many people logging in as during the previous stress tests and im sure they know this is an excellent way to ensure they dont have quite as big a pool of players. They must be testing something incrementally. So i will be one of the people who respects thier decision and bows out from this one.

Well, we are paying customers, not paid employees of ArenaNet. Not participating in what will basically amount to staring at the login screen for 40-50 minutes on a Sunday at an unconvenient time for many people is perfectly fine. We've got our own stuff to take care of, ya know.

Although it is very early in the morning for me (3:30am), I'll wake up and log in.  Mainly because I want to see how the game is running on my new PC and smooth out any niggles prior to launch.  If we get the full hour that will be good... if there are login issues... well that just makes it more likely that there will be another stress test doesn't it.

I am more than glad to help out because anets stress tests are the real deal in order to make a better game and have a smoother launch experience its not being done to give us our much needed crack fixes or as a preview of the game..

Agreed. Considering D3's debacled launch and the kind of backlash Blizzard endured, I'm certain and glad that Anet is taking GW2's launch very serious.

The fact that ANet continues to run these stress tests is a good sign for a smooth launch IMO.

It means they know things still arent quite right, and they are trying to fix them BEFORE launch so that launch day is smooth. I suspect that we will continue to see these stress tests until ANet are happy that their servers can handle the load that will be thrown at them on 25th. 

If we see instability and login issues today, there will most likely be more stress tests until it IS smooth.

Asking a paying customer to work for free is selfish!

What a silly statement, its a give and take situation, give a few hours of gameplay, get lots of free testing. The people testing already payed for the game, so your point while may be slightly true, is also false. Lets not forget, the meaning of testing these days are also skewed and not what they once were.
