In preparation for Beta weekend 2, ArenaNet has doubled their server capacity. Let's hope we don't have issues logging on.

They also gave us a sneak peak to some of the new things they improved or introduced this patch. I'll highlight some of the things we are most likely to encounter:

* We can keep playing with the characters from previous events.
* The mystic forge, a item combiner/crafting gadget located in the city of Lion's Arch.
* A new mini dungeon under the central World vs. World map.
* Automated PvP tournaments for 5 player teams.
* They improved the combat to make it give it a better "sense of hitting" as a dev describes it.
* The overflow server system has been improved and it should be easier to join guildies if you get sent there.
* Missed chats during the previous events? Rejoice, they say they have improved the chat system (including chat bubbles)
* You can now bind your keys with a simple user interface.
* New in-game store "management". We get 500 gems to play around with

All in all it's starting to look we'll have a great beta weekend ahead of us. Don't be a stranger and log on to vent and let's explore the world of Tyria as a guild!
