Got in, they have plastered your user name (email) all over the backgrounds so if you post video or pictures online they can find you. Kind of funny seeing your email address every two inches on your screen.

I think...I'm loading into the world, "Requesting" screen you mention Kast took me a good 5 minutes to get past.

I'm in now. Game is extremely sluggish. Took a couple of minutes for it to acknowledge that I completed my first task. Now glitching when attempting to talk to my first NPC.

I know it's a stress test, but they should've been more prepared than this. I got booted back to character selection after waiting for the system to catch up. I'm at the loading screen again.

I'm successfully playing, just got past the tutorial zone.

Game definitely needs some polishing, but it does play like Skyrim, just online. It's not really a WoW clone with Elder Scrolls skin like I expected.

Edit:
Zoned, and it froze at just over 50% loading, and now is stuck there, forced exit twice and relogged, still sticks at 50% load.

I assume you're talking about escaping back to Tamriel? Known issue unfortunately.

Worked now. Inn is filled with 100s of people, all dancing on the tables.

Sounds like the real beta is also active, and a few people are saying things like "It'll get better at 9 when this stress test is over".

Let's hope we can get in that too. Did you get a choice of server when you logged in, cause I didn't?

No, I only saw the one "LIVE" server.

I hope they add Xbox 360 PC controller support, like in Skyrim. I was pleasantly surprised by the game. A few fears put to rest, but there is a lot of work left to do on it.

Clicking "Check for updates" at random intervals, its fun.

Looks and plays like Skyrim just with more people running around and zone chat. I'm a little impressed at how well it runs with all the people.

It looks like Skyrim, and it plays like Skyrim, but there's not much suspense in stalking through a dungeon with 9 other dudes jumping all over the place and smashing mobs.

True that. I thought the dungeons might be instanced but nope.

I accidentally picked some magic staff/spear thing in the tutorial and can't find a new weapon for the life of me. I hate the way my weapon plays: some sort of life sucking stream thingie. I'm supposed to be a paladin type -- gimme my sword 'n board or two-handed smasher.

I picked up a sword/shield, and when I was in the camp outside the prison, I opened a chest and got a magical ice staff.

It looks like chests/urns/crates all respawn super fast. I ran around the last area before going to Tam, and looted over and over, have 10 stacks of lock picks and a bunch of random crafting and food things. So I'd imagine you could find a sword somewhere for free.

Yeah, I'm just kind of running around and messing with stuff. I assume they're char wiping after this test anyway so I didn't invest too much time into my character and don't plan to.

Well, that was fun. I did find and get to try out a bunch of different weapons. I noticed that the game used all of my processor cores which might explain why it ran so smoothly.

I thought everything was supposed to be phased and instanced to prevent these exact things.

How else are dudes gonna skill up Athletics to get the Strength bonus modifier?

I received an email with a survey which I dutifully filled out so I could brown-nose more beta access. Was sort of a weird survey though since many of the questions didn't really apply to the stress test (forming a guild, etc). I assume it was a fairly generic survey they keep using.

Anyway, check your email if you participated.
