    You don't need to bribe me with a actual beta invite in order to get me to 'endure' the horror of the stress test, I will gladly do it for free :D

    So much excitement... I mean it will probably be a weekend of log in, Crash, log in, Crash, log in, move four steps, crash. But still... this made my week.

    And I hope the Stress Test is under NDA, because if all y'all get in and I don't, I don't want to hear diddly about how frakkin cool it was.

    In a PAX interview, they said that they were aiming for an end-of-year launch. That they're stress-testing this early really is really frickin' impressive! :)

    I will gladly break the server structure and hardware of WildStar so it runs smooth at launch. While it'd be nice to actually test the game, crashing the servers is part of game testing, so can't really complain...

    Since invites are still involved, and its very early in the Closed Beta, I think we can safely assume that a non-disclosure agreement will still be involved.

    Not yet. Carbine may not even be entirely sure yet. I imagine we could guess that a few thousand would be at least involved. Depending on how many "realms" they bring online for it? Ten thousand? More? We'll find out soon enough.

    Oh my I am so excited. I was resigned to the idea that the odds of getting a beta invite before the fall were very slim. Now this gives hope. :)

    However many people it takes to crash and burn an un-optimized (as in no stress test yet to determine it's full load capacity) MMO server in under one second...

    Something very scary just occurred to me. I just made vacation plans in June and now I am bit terrified it will be the same weekend as the stress test weekend. But if its the same weekend those pans are going to be cancelled. One can always go on a vacation but one cannot often stress test Wildstar over a weekend. The choice seems obvious. Hopefully they will give us some heads up on the date so it will be easier to contain any family aggro.
