Stress Test Beta Begins!

Stress Test Beta Begins! - World of Warcraft -

Blizzard has launched their huge "Stress Test Beta" today at noon PST.  This test will give the servers the high traffic loads needed to test the limits of the World of Warcraft hardware and software...a critical part of MMORPG development.

Those that downloaded the game via FilePlanet in the past week will be getting an e-mail shortly from them, so check your inboxes and make sure that your spam and junk mail filters are disabled!

Players can access the stress test forums at this link once their account is up and running.

Note that this test will only last until Sept. 9, 2004.  At this time all accounts will be closed as well as the official stress test forums.

For more information on this test - please visit the official site at
