World of Warcraft Classic server is already massively overcrowd

  • One of the realms for World of Warcraft Classic has already filled up with so many players that Blizzard anticipates player queues of 10,000 or more on day one when the Ur-MMO launches later this month.

    The Herod realm, a PvP server based in the Americas’ Eastern time zone, is absolutely packed with character name reservations, which opened up this past week. As GamesRadar+ reports, World of Warcraft community manager Randy “Kaivax” Jordan wrote in a recent forum post that while realms can fit hold far more characters in 2019 than they could in 2006, Herod is still going to be overpopulated if everyone who has reserved a character name on the server winds up remaining there.

    Naturally, that makes WoW Classic an offering that isn't really for everyone, but hype for the game has nevertheless persisted in the face of claims that the game might be too niche to thrive. Concerns over whether or not Blizzard would be cannibalizing its own current WoW playerbase haven't dissipated, but recent news regarding the sheer amount of people queuing up to give WoW Classic a try are heartening for those who worry a Classic iteration spells eventual doom for the long-standing MMO.

    However, if you’re among the players who’ve already reserved their character’s name and made plans with fellow mates to play on a specific server, you might not want to move to another realm. In this case, we suggest going away for the launch weekend in order to avoid massive queue times. On Monday, log-in queues should be way shorter. On the other hand, you still have a week to change your plans and inform your buddies to swap servers.
