Default Guild Wars 2 beta tidbits: "hundreds of thousands" of pre-purchases

May 10th, 2012, 22:19
Some inspiring information in a recent blog post by Mike O'Brien, President of ArenaNet.

http://www.arena.net/blog/mike-obrie…ld-wars-2-beta

the number of people who pre-purchased the game far exceeded our expectations, and we had to temporarily disable pre-purchases. In the end that wasn’t enough, and even with 48 worlds we didn’t have enough server capacity to meet the huge demand.
And news of an upcoming stress test this Monday, albeit only 7 hours long:
Stress Test on Monday May 14th to test some changes we’ve implemented. This 7-hour test event, which runs from 11 AM to 6 PM PDT (-7 GMT) is open to all players who have pre-purchased Guild Wars 2.
So, if you're interested in what I can only describe as an incredibly fun and fresh online gaming experience, I heartily recommend you consider pre-purchasing and logging in on Monday
