Servers ready for Guild Wars 2 beta weekend

Servers ready for Guild Wars 2 beta weekend


With the second Guild Wars 2 beta weekend just a few days away ArenaNet knows that its gamers are concerned about being plagued with the same issues they were the first time; slow game play, being kicked off the server after playing for a short time, and not being able to get back on for a long time.  ArenaNet held a stress test to help resolve those issues.

In fact, to help alleviate the concerns of its gamers, ArenaNet put a simple note on their blog: We doubled our servers!  This came from hard work on the IT guys part and, I’m sure, lessons learned from the first beta weekend as well as the stress test.

I have to admit I would be a little skeptical of this but with all the places which gave away beta codes last week, ArenaNet itself giving away 1500, I think I have to be confident that the second beta will be much better than the first.  However, it is still possible that there will be issues, I mean that’s what beta testing is all about, especially since at this point even more people have purchased the game than when the first beta was held.

I will just have to wait and see when I log in to play.

I have been a gamer for over 20 years and a writer for longer than that. I was a gamer before it was "ok" for girls to play games. My preference is RPG's over everything else but I also like fighting games, action, adventure, sims, platform, puzzle, and casual games.
