This stress test went pretty well, I think. Granted, the time wasn't exactly peak hours, but it seems they may have solved the issues they were having with the rampant lag and disconnections.
I was a solid 60 FPS for all conflicts (V-Sync on), even ones that were 20 people at a time throwing out massive AOE effects. I have a Nvidia 560 Ti, i7 920 processor and 6 GB of RAM on Win 7 64 bit. I play at best appearance at 1920x1200.

First time playing spent 15 minutes making a character then played for about 45 minutes and I can tell that this was indeed a worthy purchase. Definitely did not want to stop playing. Didn't get booted off at all until the end so got to play all the way through turned up most settings to high except shadows my pc seems to always have issues with those and it was great. Like I said DID NOT WANT TO STOP. 8/25 can't get here soon enough. =)

There was also a lot of lag, kinda to be expected, and it once again reinforced that Gw2's combat is really bad in a poor performance enviroment. Tried some sPvP, unplayable with lag.
Not sure but it seems Engineer took a slap of nerfs, didnt play the previous two stress tests so i duno how much has changed in the past 2 days. I found the new easy toggle for showing head and shoulder slot. But my gf told me that was in the last stress tests aswell, still loving it.
Even know it recommends me to put shadows to High i keep it at low because i get about 7 more fps from it. Doesn't really make much of a difference for me anyways. But anyways this test was better. Seemed like my fps were much better although i'd like to see higher fps when it crowded areas.

No lag or DCs, things are looking great!
I played around with my build in the Mists starting area. I love that the target dummies (golems) have knockbacks and run around rofl.
