The sheer amount of traffic from "prerelease preview" is expectantly high and it's causing issues.



    It depends entirely on the setup. They should have more than 4 servers, yes, but if you're referring to datacenters, then they could potentially have 50+ in each. You don't buy a single server in a datacenter. If you only need a single server, you go through a third party as it's cheaper (and often, you'd go into Cloud due to the potential savings you can make). You buy a cluster when you go with a datacenter.

    If you're referring to routers (since the line before it refers to them), then less routers = lower ping. These aren't the routers you've seen sat under your desk or wherever. These are routers designed to handle massive throughput. The function similar, but their firmware and hardware is designed with much higher utilization in mind than a consumer router.
    I meant the ip's you can traceroute, so the large nodes of the net.

    GW2's Twitter: Follow Guild Wars 2 about an hour ago:
    We have re-established server connectivity and are aware of some Error 42 issues.If you find this error please try again to reconnect. ^DO

    and then again about 15 minutes later:
    If you're getting an error 42 trying to log in to #GW2, try closing and relaunching the client. Thanks for your continued patience! ~RB2
