    Default GW2 Beta Weekend 8th-10th

    Alrighty everyone, it's that time we've all been desperate for.

    The next Beta Weekend has been announced for next weekend:

    Beta Weekend Event 2 will begin on Friday, June 8th, at noon PDT (GMT-7) and will run until Sunday, June 10th, at 11:59 p.m. PDT (GMT-7).

    that means from 8PM BST or 9PM CET.

    We are on the Desolation EU server

    If you want to join, either find a PCG member and ask about joining, or send a message to either:
    Falco Darkwind
    Ivarice Belmonte
    Zala
    or Olgit



    Update
    so, AreanaNet have given the details about what's happening this weekend: [url]http://www.arena.net/blog/the-big-beta-weekend-preview[/url]

    Here are the basics:

    Keep Your Characters!
    We knew this already, but there you have it, no character wipes but also no news of Asura or Sylvari

    Enter the Catacombs
    High level dungeon for groups of level 35+ people, maybe we can get some footage for it

    Visit Lovely Gendarran Fields
    Another high level zone, for level 25-35

    Unlock the Mysteries of the Mystic Forge
    Swap shop! Run by Zommoros the Genie!

    Expanded World vs. World
    Imagine quite a few people will be excited about this, a new underground battle zone, with tricks and traps and a Dark Room.
    Also, the upper world is adding more Skill Challenges, Dynamic Events and Jumping Puzzles

    PVP Automated Tournaments
    Eight teams of 5 players fight it off to claim big rewards

    Pvp Rewards
    Rewards in PVP are split into bought-by-glory and earned-by-Rank

    Combat
    It looks better when you Slashy, Slashy, Stab, Stab

    Improved Overflow Severs
    UI and features to allow people easily to group up when in Overflow Severs

    Improved Chat
    Say Hello to chat bubbles! Wooo!

    New Key-Binding Feature
    New UI and commands can have Modifier keys

    UI Improvements
    To See is to Believed

    Tiers for Skills
    That huge, daunting list of Utility skills has been streamlined

    The Gem Store is under New Management
    Now run by The Black Lion Trading Company ( or B.L.T.C.), the Gemstore has a new look

    and that's about it. Go to the Arenanet blog post to read the full information about it, located here: [url]http://www.arena.net/blog/the-big-beta-weekend-preview[/url]

    Great news that the Guild will still exist.

    However, was the Guild active in the last Stress Test? If it was, i may need another invitation, since although I had entered in the Guild in BWE1 I was not in it in the Stress Test.
