I have heard that they will be doing stress test weekends starting later this month from different videos and such. Is this true? If so. . awesome! Very glad to see the game is running smoothly enough already to have stress tests.

No, the first round of tests will be very small and particular. Stress tests are much further away towards the end of beta testing. At that point pretty much everyone that applied for beta will be able to play.

Yea, stress tests always come towards the end of beta testing.

I wonder if they will have a Open Beta at the end of Closed Beta for the purpose of stress testing? Just to get as many people as they can on.

They have said they will eventually have an open beta and conduct stress tests before the game is released.

I'd expect them to have a nice open beta and include a key with preorders of the game. I wouldn't expect TESO to reinvent the wheel in terms of testing or marketing.

You mean TESO to reinvent the wheel of free samples? Open betas that are given out with pre-orders are nothing but commercial bull.

I'm (emotionally) banking on the open beta toward the end of the beta testing phase. Even if I'm not one of the lucky few to be invited to the earlier tests, I can rest easier knowing that I will probably get to try out the game at least a little before it is released.

I would very much love to be able to try the game out before buying. While I'm not really much for demos with most games, I'd definitely want to know what I'm getting into for an MMO as you spend far more time in them than any other game. . so, playing for a week beta or something in an MMO usually doesn't scratch the surface of the amount of content in it. From this, I honestly would really like to have a stress test or open beta. Unless I get the luck to get into Beta.

@Kilivin - You can just about bet money that there will be an open beta stress test, or a 'closed' (Read: 99% of people get into it right before launch) beta. Even if not, just remember....even if you buy the game, if you don't like it, you can always sell it back on eBay for near-what you paid for it. You could also wait a couple days for the first in depth gameplay footage to emerge online, and try judging it based off of that.

Sorry. I thought it would be obvious that I meant wait until a couple of days after the game or open beta comes out.
