    Wow stress test sign up

    World of Warcraft:

    For those of you interested, the stress test sign up is now open to non subcribers of fileplanet. The test will last one week and will begin at an unannounced date (most likely once they have a sufficient amount of testers, probably in a couple of days).

    The sign up is first come first serve, so head on over to http://www.fileplanet.com and sign up now. MMO and warcraft fans alike should give this game a try. Its blizzard, they make great games as far as im concerned, so can't go wrong with trying the game for free.

    The client download is pretty large (2,260.5 MB) (sorry 56kers ) and is available here http://www.fileplanet.com/download.aspx?f=144890. Sign up PRIOR to downloading the client to make sure you get your unique key which will be needed to create an account to be used during the test.

    FREE Signups for World of Warcraft Stress Test Beta Now Open!
    Anyone interested in getting an advance look at World of Warcraft can now sign up for a chance to participate in the upcoming World of Warcraft stress test beta! While thousands of test slots were snatched up by FilePlanet subscribers during the priority-access period earlier this week, thousands more remain available. However, potential testers must sign up quickly, because the remaining test slots will be distributed on a first come, first served basis until they’ve all been claimed.
    The stress test beta, which will start soon after all 100,000+ test slots have been assigned, will help Blizzard evaluate World of Warcraft’s account-creation process and server performance under heavy loads. This seven-day test will be separate from the ongoing World of Warcraft closed beta test, but stress testers will have access to all of the game content that closed-beta testers are currently playing. To learn more about the upcoming stress test beta, please visit the World of Warcraft Stress Test Beta FAQ.
    Good luck and hope to see you there.


    I love gaming, mmmmmmmm

    Yayage. Got my key and will have the download going in a minute or two. Although this is going to not be too playable, I imagine...100k people pushing a single server? Lord help us, heh.

    If anyone wants to get together and play this, let me know. I've got a Lvl 16 gnome rogue that I've been playing with off and on for the last few months. We can create a TeamSpeak channel and get a party going...

    The World of Warcraft stress test beta is just a day away. Hundreds of thousands of gamers applied for the stress test this past week, and FilePlanet was up to the task, issuing over 100,000 accounts and providing the stress test beta client for download. With the signups and downloads complete, we are just about ready to welcome these gamers into World of Warcraft for the very first time.
    Starting tomorrow, September 2nd at 12:00 noon PDT, stress test beta participants will be able to create their World of Warcraft accounts and begin playing the game. Their participation will help us optimize our account-creation and server infrastructure, and enable us to deliver the best online experience possible when the game launches later this year. We want to thank everyone who applied for the stress test beta, and we look forward to seeing the new testers online tomorrow when the stress test beta starts.

    Selected stress test beta participants should keep an eye on their inboxes for an email containing further instructions. For more information on the World of Warcraft stress test beta, please check out our FAQ. To get a head start on learning how to play World of Warcraft, take a look at our beta strategy guide.
    Hope to see you there tomorrow .
