    Like the OP stated though, I'll be at work when it matters.

    Now Blizz gets to look at why it failed and hopefully August whatever it was everything goes smoothly thanks to our pain today.
    I dont know anyone who was able to create the character in the first 1.5 hours of server being up without beta access, I gave up after and didnt try.

    Yeah, server is supposed to be up for people to play for another ~22 hours, but it's been almost an hour since beta server has gone up and stress test is still down. Please stop making excuses for Blizzard. What they did here is inexcusable.

    Bro, it's a stress test. The point of it is to test the servers, not the gameplay.

    Is it annoying that they had a lack of communication? Sure, but attempting to play a stress test then being upset when you can't play is honestly kind of dumb.

    Stop making excuses please. The ability for people with only stress test access was deliberately disabled. I'm not upset that I couldnt play, at all. I was going to get lvl 5 in 30 minutes and log off anyway. I wasted 1.5 hours of my time instead before my guildies were able to figure out the issue.

    EDIT: To clarify, I would've come to test even if they told us that they're just testing login servers.

    People with beta access had priority most likely sure, but there were definitely people without beta access on the stress test. There were probably more people in Northshire than there are on BfA.

    Like dude, sure it's annoying but getting upset over a stress test is a bit ridiculous. Also, it's not even like the stress test is over. They're keeping the server up until tomorrow.

    I believe the test is to kill the server, and how fast they can get it back up and operational.

    You would have attempted to log in for two hours knowing that all you'd do is stare at a login screen? Ok. Most people wouldn't do that lol.

    I just played retail in-between attempts. If this info makes it better for everyone at lunch then it was not a total loss of 2 hours

    I highly doubt it would and I don't think that was their intent, if so it was retarded. If they wanted to simply flood the login servers then there are other ways to do that.

    No point trying to reason with apologists.

    They probably thought season 8 of GoT was great.

    Either way we're probably more likely to get into at least the next stress test, which will hopefully go a bit smoother.

    Nothing would have changed. Login queue was almost non existant after 25 minutes.

    Been trying since the stress test started. At this point i've got 2 characters created but get a "World server is down" error message. Thinking it's bedtime for me.
