Well of the 12 minutes I got to play of the "stress" test (can it really be called a stress test if its last minute notice late night where there won't be very much "stress"?) I must say the two main issues I was having last BWE have been fixed (probably where in prior stress tests but I work during the week so have not played any since BWE3) the camera distance was much better to where it didn't hurt to look at, and the FPS was MUCH better... BWE3 I was getting 25-40FPS on high settings in regular 2D view, this "stress" test I was getting 70-90FPS in regular 2D view and 45-65FPS with Nvidia 3D stereoscopic view also on high settings.
Looking forward to actually playing Saturday now that it won't be character wipes and so will have more interest in playing then I did during the BWEs since I knew that there would be wipes so didn't want to play too much besides to figure out what class I want to start as once all wiping is done.
Anyone else notice better FPS?
Also I got a purple leather bag, 5 slot (new to me).. Other than that, the little changes I saw were great!
Meh, I didn't see this until now and I've been awake for 3 hours. :O
Ah well, downloading the files anyhows.

A post from reddit indicates higher level zones were opened and it may have been a quick test of the "live" version of the game. See http://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/c...reenshots_inc/ for 3 screenshots of 70+ stuff (hardly anything except a loading screen and level 70 whatever minotaur calf).
Less than 2 days until it starts! !
Question: Where can I find announcements for these Stress tests and other things? The GW2 site doesnt seem to update much and never announces the stress tests like these. I dont use facebook so thats a no go for me. Any suggestions? Serious ones?
EDIT: I dont mean just fro stress test either. But a site that will have quick announcements about any important ingame things even after launch tomorrow night.
