Guild Wars 2 stress test today!

At 3pm EDT Guild Wars 2 will be running another stress test!  I hope to see all you Godless folk there!  I’ll be coming into work early in order to play.  :)

I’ll probably spend the entire time in the structured PvP area testing out different classes to see what I really want to play with at launch (right now I’m leaning slightly toward warrior with engineer and guardian right behind).  Do any of you want to put a five-person tournament team together and really attack some PvP?  :)

About JT Eberhard

When not defending the planet from inevitable apocalypse at the rotting hands of the undead, JT is a writer and public speaker about atheism, gay rights, and more. He spent two and a half years with the Secular Student Alliance as their first high school organizer. During that time he built the SSA’s high school program and oversaw the development of groups nationwide. JT is also the co-founder of the popular Skepticon conference and served as the events lead organizer during its first three years.

  • senor

    Wow that’s a lot of people already. I’m assuming the ** denotes an officer?

    • John Horstman

      Yes, the ** and ++ denote officers and leaders, respectively. Our present structure has an interim council of (mostly) self-appointed officers, with Kegan/Valyon as a sort of Prime Minister or functional chief executive and JT as Her Royal Majesty, The Queen (a hereditary position held in perpetuity that largely functions as a figurehead). We’re continuing to work on drafting a more formalized leadership structure with specified roles and duties, and we’ll be holding elections for the first government under the finalized structure once it’s finalized. Part of this will have to wait until after launch, when we’re sure of the in-game guild mechanics. We have a few ongoing discussion threads on the guild site open to all members regarding guild structure, and anyone who wishes to do so is welcome to join our voice-chats (I think we’re looking at 7pm US Central Daylight Time this Saturday for the next one – it’s leading Friday on our Facebook poll).

      • IslandBrewer

        I thought the ** were the waitstaff and the ++ was the wine steward!

        Are you not fetching me my cheese plate and Zinfandel?

        No tip for you!

      • senor

        Eh I am generally casual enough to adapt to whatever structure lets me stab various NPCs and player-controlled characters in the face.

  • KirikaSena

    I plan to play, but I have virtually no experience (I’ve barely played the betas), and I’m clueless about PvP. I’d be willing to try, though. :)

  • unbound

    Dang it. This is the 2nd stress test that’s happening while I’m out of town.

    Oh well. Hope everyone enjoys!

    • kagekiri

      Yeah, I’m always at work during the stress tests. It sucks : [

  • leftwingfox

    I’ll see if I can connect, but I might be out drinking tonight. :D Player name Marushawa. Leaning strongly towards a Charr Engineer as my starter character.

  • Loqi

    Why’d they have to choose a raid night for this? Sadface.

  • skasowitz

    There is another stress test coming up tonight (Friday, Aug. 10) from 4pm PST to 8pm PST.

    Hoping to get a chance to at least pop in and check things out briefly as I’ve been unable to participate in all the previous beta events.

    Finally have an account name as well: sethlock.8072
