GW2 Heart of Thorns Closed Beta Testing on May 26

Players who obtained a portal drop from Heart of Maguuma will be able to enter the closed beta testing on May 26.

We’re pleased to announce the closed beta test for Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns™. If you obtained a portal to the Heart of Maguuma during the special event in Dry Top and the Silverwastes, you’ll receive an e-mail with all the details you’ll need to get started. Please ensure that you’ve signed up for our newsletter so that we can contact you! We’ll be randomly choosing a number of newsletter recipients for participation in the beta test as well.

The upcoming closed beta will help us test the stability of our new PvE outpost-event content structure. Participants will be able to use a revenant—or any of the existing eight professions—to play a small amount of expansion story content, followed by two beta versions of outposts and their corresponding adventures in part of the Verdant Brink map. An early, partially completed version of the day/night cycle meta-event experience from Verdant Brink will also be available.

Testing will begin on May 26, and will run in 2 hour blocks with breaks between each block. The schedule is as follows:

  • 11:30 a.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7) to 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7)
  • 3:30 p.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7) to 5:30 p.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7)
  • 7:30 p.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7) to 9:30 p.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7)

This test is not under a nondisclosure agreement, and participants are welcome to stream and discuss their experiences. We hope to see you there!

Darn, don’t get much for that Portal I farmed. 6 hours total in specific 2 hour blocks (some which will inevitably fall during work hours). Hate to complain, but was hoping for a weekend, or at least a day. Hope the portal gives you additional beta opportunities.

and again A-net don’t give a f*ck at the european community: 2 of 3 blocks are a bad joke – 00:30-02:30am and 04:30-06:30am?? who the hell do they think can play at such times? -.-

I don’t understand your math, PST to GMT gives 18:30 – 20:30, 22:30 – 00:30 and 02:30-04:30. (+7 hours)
We have the possibility to play outside business hours, which I think is nice.

I think he was converting to CET. Even so, GMT is wrong to use in the summer. It’s BST you should use.

GMT is the global standard and is always the best system to use when providing times to players on a global level.

Nope. GMT is outdated. GMT was formerly used as the international civil time standard, now superseded in that function by Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

Except that GMT is a timezone and UTC is a time standard. GMT+01:00 does not mean 1 hour ahead of the time in the UK at the moment, as one could
mistakenly think.

Still, Using GMT+2 you get 20:30-22:30, 00:30-2:30 and 04:30-06:30.
One of them is totally fine to play at, the second is manageable for the willing and the last one is a possibilité for the most determined

I think you’re missing the point. It’s abundantly clear that Anet has not thought of the Europeans when scheduling. I have a hard time figuring out why they could not just move the whole schedule two hours back, with first test starting at 9:30.

I wouldn’t be surprised if we get some server crash on first timeframe due to all EU players logging in too ….

3x 2 Hrs, I wonder what the reasoning behind this is. If it is just a stresstest they should have mentioned so, since you could hardly call this a Beta.

Is this the only closed beta period we get? Seems like a waste of farming that portal if it’s just one day.
