The Guild Pre-Wars Continue

There's to be another beta weekend for Guild Wars 2, the MMO that resolutely refuses to launch. Which means, once again, I won't be able to play the thing due to weekend plans. Specifically in this case, camping in Sherwood Forest and listening to indie bands. Can't we have a beta weekday evening or two instead, please?

If you are around for the 8th to 10th of June, you should be able to hop onto a GW2 beta server presuming you've either pre-ordered or already managed to snag a beta account from somewhere. The good news of previous beta-barons is that characters from the first weekend haven't been wiped, so this might be your chance to have a nose at some of the higher-level contentydoodledoo.

As for what's different from the first weekend, an Arenanet blog post offers this :

"We’ve made great strides toward resolving many of the issues you’ve helped us identify. These include party movement into overflow servers, chat functionality, key bindings, server stability, performance, and many more that we will detail in the near future."

Well, next weekend is quite near as futures get, so they'd better get a move on.
