IIRC Dev re-posted saying it was just a joke and release date hasn't change. BUT this doesn't mean that it's not a stress test! smile.gif

Let me say this much: on the surface, the games are similar in the way that two games of the same genre are similar. You get a character, there is a 3rd person camera, you run around with other people in an open world, you kill stuff and get new gear, you level up, you can fight other people, etc etc. Expect more of this.

Past this, not much is the same. There aren't quest givers, 95% of the games quests are just events going on all the time that you stumble into as you explore. You don't need to group up with people either, everyone is on the same team so you just contribute to the event together. There aren't concrete class roles of tank/heal/dps anymore, the concept of being a tank is pretty much nonexistent in this game. Combat is MUCH faster paced, since you can cast pretty much every spell while moving. You can actually block spells by standing in the way, no more targeting the guy in the back with a big spell and shooting directly through everyone in front of him. You can actively dodge any enemy attack by side stepping if it is slow enough, and if its a quick attack you have to do a dodge roll to avoid it. PVP scales you instantly to max level with max gear so you can play without putting in the time to level your character if you don't want to. There is also a mode that pits 3 servers against each other in a 2 week long battle for a huge map where you fight for resources to build seige weapons and take the other servers castles. Every 2 weeks the teams get scrambled and reseeded.

GW2 is like an action RPG you can play with a bunch of people at one time that borrows a select few MMO elements to enhance the game. To compare to another genre, its like the differences between Counter Strike and Unreal Tournament. They are both first person shooters, but the games have completely different objectives and feel like two completely different games underneath the fact that they obviously both involve shooting at another team with guns.

"We will be conducting a stress test tomorrow Tuesday, August 21 from 12:00 Noon PACIFIC Time to 4:00 PM PACIFIC Time.

We will be actively working on the game during the event, so you might experience connectivity problems or discover features that are not working as designed.

Any issues you experience are a result of the rigorous conditions of the stress test, and are in no way representative of the state of the game at launch.

By participating in this stress test, you’re helping us make Guild Wars 2 a better game. Thanks for your cooperation—we’ll see you in-game!

--

Please note:
* The stress test is open to anyone who has pre-purchased Guild Wars 2.
* Characters will not be wiped from the previous Stress Test.
* The Stress Test will include Spanish text localization. ~RB2"

From Guild Wars 2 Facebook page

Another Stress Test ^^

^This is a good thing. It'll at least give them an idea of how heavily populated the servers will be at launch since the majority of people have already brought the game as its so close t o launch. Last thing anyone wants to experience are connection errors on launch day

Yup! Lot's of exploration and fun to be had. Both PVP and PVE aspects offer a ton of content to rummage through and be "immersed" if you choose to be.

from what i have played the world is HUGE, maybe not as big as wow or anything but what is seeing as wow is 3 expansions old. but for a new release the world is pretty big - the WvWvW area is HUGE as well each server gets its own like island kinda with a smaller 4th island where everyone attacks. winners will be put together and losers will be put together so if you dont have the best WvWvW team or your server isnt full on in that you wont always come up against sick servers or anything as well which is great
