Somehow I think the times they choose for these quick stress tests have less to do with "targeting the EU" and more to do with them simply not wanting to be stuck at work all damn night.

 

The thing people who don't  make a living in this line of work understand is that you don't NEED 20,000 people online hammering a full resource driven, 100% capacity server in order to do proper stressing.  In the cooperate world when we need to stress out an application server we do it at 2AM...sure as hell not in the middle of the work day.

 

We can easily simulate full loads with very few employees by simply readjusting resources and bringing down available infrastructure.  As far as a server goes I can turn 500 employees into a simulated 10,000 at any time and do all the accurate stress testing I need to without compromising the work day.  This is how server forecasters do their jobs in the the  real world and this is how they are doing it at Arena Net.

 

Far as a 4 hour test goes...meh.  I may remote into my desktop and log a character in to help them out but I'm pretty much over the interest in actually playing anymore.  I already know the game rocks and I'll be happily playing it.  The other issue is the only thing I really care about is World vs World and until release thats essentially broken after all the new empty servers were added.  Last BWE our server held every single capture on the map since we were put up against 2 new servers with no active players coming out to PvP.  I'll be good just grinding some tanks in WoT till this awesome piece of work releases.

Like someone else said, that day is going to be my busiest day at work.  Like several people said, all I really want to hear about is a release date.

Does that mean anything or is it just a random piece of art?

Come on, give us the Sylvari now. :D

It means nothing, other than they old sylvari wallpaper is getting used by the MMORPG staff in this thread.  The stress test build is the same build as the BWE2 build.

I am all for them releasing the sylvari to the public, but I wouldn't mind too much if they kept them under wraps until release or a bit before release...So long as the quality is unaffected...

I used to TL;DR, but then I took a bullet point to the footnote.

It's peak hours in EU where there's a huge playerbase and office hours for the Anet team so it makes perfect sense. Results can also be applied to US servers. Anet is one of the few studios that actually recognizes this and doesn't schedule everything around NA times nor rules us out of contests / giveaways that most other companies do.  So now you know how we often feel :P Want to play it? then take a day off like I had to do a gaziliion times since I play mmo's just to be able to participate in events and such.

Neither do I but I do use that Google Reader which can be configured to watch twitter feeds, amongst other things.

This one's at a good time of the day for me, looking forward to a few hours of mayhem.

 thats my day off from work so yay for me but to be honest i already preordered long ago and enjoyed  the short period of time i got which makes me want to play more . i will say that another beta sounds promising and yes id like to see it come out now but i also know the more time they take the better the game with guild wars 1 they made a good game that still has replay value. i expect great things from guild wars 2 but i believe that the game will come out broken and unplayable if they rush so i think all im saying is arenanet take your time i can wait but please more betas so i can get my fix lol

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

A 4 hour stress test 2 days before TSW opens. I don't think I'll bother. Looking forward to playing the game but this isn't enough to cause me to re-schedule things to play (US).

Time of day does give them a pretty good 'short-shock' stress test with all the Euros slamming the authentication serves all at once.

 

Ah well.

Again with betas, stress tests and etc...Give as the final version of the game, this is becoming boring.

Did you know that there's a continent across the Atlantic where people also play games?

No, that's not another continent.  That's Texas on the other side of that lake.  Get over yourself.

4 hours? Just 4 Hours, bah it's not worth our time! 

ha! Who am I kidding I will be playing so hard the server will break down with me playing alone, there's your stress test ANET. I still have withdrawal from the last beta weekend... I want this game to come out so bad xD I think ANET should keep the pvp area open permanently like they did with the first guild wars public beta. That was more fun than these limited weekends.

Indeed :/


Why do I write, create, fantasize, dream and daydream about other worlds? Because I hate what humanity does with this one.
