stress test may 14

Postby [FnG] Yasmin » Thu May 10, 2012 9:57 am

We’ll be conducting a stress test on Monday May 14 from 11 AM to 6:00 PM PDT (-7 GMT).

This special test event is open only to Pre-Purchase customers who have registered their accounts. With your help, we can conduct important tests and address some of the issues we identified during our first Beta Weekend Event. During this event, all you need to do is play normally with a new or existing character on your Beta account using the same game client. Please note that since this is a stress test of our servers, you may experience some in-game performance issues. If you’ve pre-purchased Guild Wars 2 and wish to participate in the stress test, we recommend that you register the account and download the game client.

Pre-Purchase customers, log in to the Beta Forums for more information and/or to download the Beta client if needed.

Sadly, I will be slap bang in the middle of my work shift. :(

Having said that, they labelled this as a stress test; expect queues, lag, crashes, and general unplayability. I suspect they'll deliberately strain the resources to see what they can take. :D
Have you blamed Kril lately?

I got on for about 3/4 of an hour at lunchtime today — wow, connected right up, never saw any errors. :shock:
Even disconnected/reconnected several times. Nice; they're getting stuff fixed.

I will jump on again after work, maybe get in the last hour and a half.

It's kewl that they didn't wipe our beta toons yet. :thumbup:

--kril out-- :mrgreen:

Kril - it probably only worked because it was a badly planned stress test....

Doing a stress test on a monday when everyone is at work/school/college is hardly going to get the numbers
to break the system.

Also played for hour as soon as the beta was open, no issues logging in, unable to create a new character (possible limitation of the beta) loaded in rather slowly, no further issues through out the Human city or the Norn city (although I did get lost in the Norn city but not really a beta issue par say) ran around exploring no issues but the trading post was unaccessable with a 403 server error although probably a beta limitation this time around.

Also with it being on a Monday not the best time to do a stress test.
