World of Warcraft Stress Test Competition
7:45 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Blizzard yesterday opened up their massively multiplayer online RPG World of Warcraft to another 100,000 players to help stress test the servers before the title goes live, and now they're giving stress test players an extra incentive to work hard in their short (one week) time period in the game: the three highest level players in each class will get the opportunity to keep playing in the main World of Warcraft beta for free until the game's launch.
With the number of Horde and Alliance classes, this means 48 players will be moving into the normal beta when the week-long stress test ends on September 9. Here's more from their site:
Blizzard will be holding a competition during the stress test to determine the three highest-level characters per class in both the Alliance and Horde factions. At the end of the stress test, three players of every Horde class and three players of every Alliance class will win entry into the World of Warcraft closed beta test. In the event of a tie, total experience accumulated will determine the ultimate winners.See the official contest page the rest of the rules on the competition.
