ArenaNet will be conducting a stress test on Thursday, August 2 from 12:00 Noon PACIFIC Time to 4:00 PM PACIFIC Time. (3pm EST to 7pm EST)
Unlike previous stress tests, developers will be actively working on the game during the event, so there might experience connectivity problems or discover features that are not working as designed. Any issues “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.”
Also, it was announced that characters from the final beta weekend haven’t been wiped yet, so they are still available for play during the test.
See you in-game!
