    Hope too few people turn up so they realise what they've been missing, send a personalized apology email to me and give me 15y Anniversary CE for free.

    Oh you'll have something to do in those 2hrs m8, trying to hit lvl 5 with way too many people competing for mobs. That's the whole point, overcrowding the starter zone to test stability.

    out of interrest, have you tried logging in now ? See if any servers are up.
    Don't get your hopes up, but you might have got a regular beta invite. But as i said, don't get your hopes up

    So the stress test is actually a "beta" version, or lesser version of the actual beta? In the sense that if you get invited to stress test you can't continue in the actual beta afterwards?

    Also level 5 cap? Come on now.. They must be testing the layering tech above everything else it seems.

    What else is there to test in a STRESS test? The login servers and how the server behaves on high load (aka with lots of players at the same place -> lvl 5 cap)

    People stressing out over a stress test.

    Lol

    Its to make sure people don't run off from starting zone. They want to see how many people can one zone handle. If people are all over Azeroth, test becomes meaningless.
    Bow to your Gnomish Overlords! Attempting to take over Azeroth since 2005.

    I'll admit, this is something I wasn't aware of. Is this strictly to Polymorph or would it count for other things as well (Repentance)?
    Fear (and other crowd control) likely won't work either

    its going to be tough to even level to 5 with how many people will be there. that is the whole point and the blue post even mentions this. Remember, you have to Tag a mob to "win it" its not like live where everyone can hit the mob and get credit.

    There are going to be more stress tests. I'm sure they'll pick a time more suitable for the EU in one of the other tests.
