Arenanet 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, Arenanet can conduct important tests and address some of the issues wthey identified during the 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 Arenanet 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.

Nooo, I work all day. Oh well, its only for 7 hours anyway.
It'll undoubtedly be a harsh, laggy environment as they channel us to ever fewer servers, but that's what we're in the beta for.
i think they got a pretty good stress test the first BWE!
One server for the test with 500k player !!? that's a stress test ! (:p)
If it's a "stress test" then wouldn't you guys want to open it up to more then just the pre-purchase customers? or were there really that many to do a valid strest test on your servers... I mean unless you guys plan on decreasing the amount of available servers. Also I'm guessing that now that this whole pre-purchase thing is up there will be no more invites to people who applied for beta awhile back?
Don't you think a stress test is better conducted in an open beta?
Not happy it's going to be a stress test, will make for poor gameplay... but since it's all towards a better GW2 I'll make sure to be on the whole time.
Well still no email about the stress test. Guess it is only for people on FB or G+.
Access the forums for information, emails weren't sent out (as far as I can tell).
Yes I saw the forums. I was telling for the people who does not check. It is not like they write something to forum everyday, so I have no habit of checking it.
Lol, I am too anxious for the game I suppose... I noticed when they removed all the old threads and was checking all the rest of yesterday hoping the next BWE would be announced. Since the last one was announced on a Wednesday the week before I got really hopeful it wasn't just a coincidence.

As a side note, the Beta client has no file updates (yet) so chances are we won't see any differences between the last BWE and this test.
How are they going to measure my stress for waiting the next BWE? They can tell from my bitten nails for sure :P
Woohoo! So excited to get back to Tyria!
4am start? Ugh.. better make a note to set my alarm. DX
