Yeah I think I will pass on a one hour test. 

Wonder if they are just trying to pound the logon servers.

managed to get in a little play time with each class thanks to all the stress tests, and i'm really glad i did!  one class that i was just like, "pfff, whatever," was the mesmer.  i had no idea why they needed that class when you already had an elementalist and an engineer.  but i'm really glad i tried it.  it turns out, the whole "constantly make duplicates of yourself and then use them for other neat tricks like blowing them up" idea is REALLY cool.  :)  also, the class i naturally gravitated toward first is still the one i understand least, even having spent the most playtime on it and done the most research for:  poor necromancer...  how do you work?

another thing i've noticed is that your opening choices definitely affect the opening cut scenes, as well - not just your background stuff, but i think your demeanor has some effect.  it's really neat!  the temptation to purchase 3 more character slots to have access to all the classes at the get-go is extremely high...
