Starting Wednesday, February 4th at Noon Pacific, Cory Jones will show you the upcoming Arena Test Server and make a run at Hogarth's hand-picked champions. Then, our HEX channel community streamers will play on Twitch for over 20 continuous hours to bring you endless Arena action!

I must have missed this in the previous posts. . . . Will we need to download a new client to log into the Test Server? If so, when will that client download become available?

"On Thursday (time TBA) we’ll release the link to all active players who had logged into the current beta client at least once before February 2nd. You players can then download the test server, install it, log in, and challenge the arena for yourselves"

So streamers get access first? Boooo, no fair, blah blah blah, whine, complain.

Thought I would get in first :P

Looking forward to watching Alucard...... and Cory obviously.

Honestly since the loot, etc isn't permanent, watching will be almost as good as playing myself.

Lets crash the test servers.
Then they'll HAVE to make the blue wheel sleeves.

Please no, I just want to be able to stream it without everyone watching me continuously have the blue wheel of death on my stream lol

Dang, now I'm back to dreaming about blue wheel sleeves. :(

...download the test server.

Time to setup that local linux box and do some stress testing of my own.

Thanks for this. The "download the test server" must have tripped me up as I was looking for "client" not "server".

+1 to Yoss!

If we break the server enough times they will have to make the blue wheel sleeves.Let's break them.

Lol, every swinging deck in the world will be trying to download the client on Thursday. THAT will crash the servers for sure.

Almost every MMO out there lets you pre-download the client ahead of time to prevent that kind of snafu.

Looking forward to the arena gameplay and all the prestreams! It is going to be amazing! ;D

And you couldn't find a PvE-related image for this post? It had to be Monsuun? ;-)

Yes, preloading the client really would make sense...

Yup, 4am in the morning for me.

By all that is holy, please tell me the stream is being recorded ;)

I'm so glad it's just a test server and not a PvE launch event, as this is the first weekend in ages when I can't play a single game of Hex.

I wouldn't worry. Based on prior stress tests, there will be a lot of spinning wheel watching this weekend. And I mean that with great love and affection for the game we all adore.

After watching Cory run the Arena on the test server, I have two things to say:
1. It looks so fun! :)
2. It's a long way from ready to go live. :(

Came here to say exactly that.
Arena looks like it's going to be tons of fun and something that I'll be playing excessively but then again it really seems to be far from done - so many bugs, AI doing dumb stuff/nothing at all.
I'm really hyped to play it myself tomorrow, but if I had to make an estimate based on what we saw I'd say it's at least another 2-3 months away...

Ditto on both statements but also...
3. Glad HexEnt opened up the test so we can have a taste of things to come, even if it is ephemeral.
