EverQuest II
EverQuest II: Beta Server Event!

You are cordially invited to crash EverQuest II's Beta Server!

Okay, not really. The EQII team has been working on "performance increases" and the first round of them is on Beta. There will be a testing event starting on Wednesday, August 27th at 3pm PT.

We have our first round of performance increases on Beta right now. There are more coming, but this first round we want to do some load testing and get it out to live as quickly as we can. This affects every aspect of the game: quests, tradeskilling, items, combat, pvp-combat even housing. So we need to test as many different things as possible.

Please join us on the Beta server, Wednesday, August 27th starting at 3PM and going on until whenever!

Gninja is promising Punch and pie!

See you there!
