Faerlina Will Be the Main WoW Classic Streamer Realm

Recommended Posts

Blizzard enabled character creation for everyone with an active subscription yesterday and streamers have finally picked their realms.

We recently wrote about AvoidStreamers, a site, which gathers information about streamers with the goal to help you avoid streamer realms when it comes to Classic.

Classic character creation opened up yesterday, allowing all players with an active sub to create up to 3 characters per account before launch, so many streamers locked down their server choice. Esfand, Asmongold, and sodapoppin have all picked Faerlina-US. Toweliee will be playing on Pagle-US. The most popular EU realm appears to be Shazzrah, where queues exceeded 1 hour. The few EU streamers have so far picked Golemagg-EU.

I'm really glad most of the streamers ended up on one server. They'll be able to make some fun content together with potentially some MASSIVE world PVP, but do it within a bubble allowing those of us that aren't apart of their fandom a server not economically and population dominated by them.

If a streamer, say Shroud because he's not a core MMO streamer, quits about a month in and half his fans were only playing because of him, that's a massive loss of population for a server. Since it's a streamer server it potentially won't fall as hard though because they can just pick the next community they potentially already sub to and join in.

This whole anti-streamer thing is such a storm in a teacup that I can only imagine it being started by the hyper-entitled classic 'community'. Complete nonsense.

Didn't think we'd see someone get triggered about this.  Streamers will have an impact on servers, and this site helps people avoid that if they want to. Doesn't impact you, so just ignore it.

What trigger? The only triggered people I see are the ones crying about streamers and complaining that some hadn't said where they'd be playing, like they are entitled to control where other people play.

The problem is not streamers. It's their community.

I keep seeing people say this, but they never 'define' problem beyond that they don't like them, I mean if they were really a 'problem' they'd be breaking the ToS and Blizzard would do something about it. It just seems like people want their own little safe bubble where they have total control.

Its the opposite: people fear that they will be in the streamer's bubble where they have total control and can blacklist you if you gank them and such.

But in practice its basically the same as having a big guild behind someone.

I mean, it takes all of a couple moments worth of research to find the clips of what the world looks like when a streamer is on. The joke of "invite to Asmon Layer" was flooding trade chat, making it scroll like a twitch stream. When the population is made of many people who think their streamer is famous and want to get close enough to feel like they are a part of something, it is GOING to make an impact on a consistent MMO world. 

There is a big difference between randomly matching with a popular online personality in a shooter or something and a persistent world where the masses can literally watch the stream and go find that person at any given point. It will be a swarm of locusts, burning everything in their path, lagging zones to a crawl, flooding all the local chats with nonsense, etc. If you don't think it will like be this, again, just look up some clips of the open beta. It will happen, and many people do not want to be a part of that in their day to day experience.

Haha, I gave you a clear and concise reason since you asked for it as to why people want to avoid the streamer thing.  No one even remotely leaned towards saying "ban it".  You can keep arguing if you like but I can promise you that no one minds that you have a difference of opinion.  If you don't think it will be an issue for you and want to play on a streamer server that is your choice.  Do what makes you happy man ?

Oh hell no. I don't live in the past, so I wont be playing classic at all, I just find it amusing to read about all the crap the classic 'community' is constantly pulling, it's like watching a group of two year olds screaming for ice cream, but sadder.

SO I guess what makes you happy is complaining about a community that you have no stake in since you won't be participating?  Good on ya, you did it, hope your day rocks because of it.

Why is it the streamer server though? Did they coordinate this? No way they all just randomly picked it.

Yes, they did. They all wanted to be on the same realm and decided to go with Faerlina.

You seriously need help dude. Are you ok? Bloodpressure like that isn't healthy. Don't PvP, might make you angry!

      Achievements have come to Classic! Well, sort of, and not all of them. RinesThaix has put together about 140 achievements to collect, but the mod is constantly being updated so there should be more soon.
      The Classic Achievements addon lets you not only gather those points up but also share and compare them, as you can link them in chat!

      English and other languages are also supported.
      If you want to check out how it looks in action, here's MrGM taking it for a spin:

      Blizzard have stated that the BC Classic beta is coming soon, but didn't specify when exactly. Today the Battle.net launcher's app catalog was updated with the TBC Internal Alpha, visible only to Blizzard but datamineable nonetheless!
      Right at the bottom there, the Internal Alpha most likely won't last too long and many have speculated that the beta won't be too long either, as there aren't as many issues to be dealt with as there were for Vanilla Classic. The release date is up in the air but hopefully Blizzard won't put it too close to patch 9.1, as many players will want to play both.
      In any case all we can do now is make sure we've opted-in to the beta (here) and wait!

      The level 58 boost option that is offered with the arrival of  Burning Crusade Classic has caused quite a bit of controversy and Blizzard have now tried to clarify the details on it a little, clarifying that the boosts will only be available on the new BC realms, while the Classic Era realms (where characters will stay if they don't transfer to the new BC  realms) will not have the boost available.
      Boost (source)
      Hello.
      I think it might be helpful to note that what we’re now calling WoW Classic Era realms start at Level 1, and we feel the same as we did two years ago: no Boost would ever be needed (or appropriate) there. When we originally laid out our principles for WoW Classic, the 1-60 experience was the only thing to which we could refer.
      Burning Crusade Classic begins at level 58, and we’re configuring this new Boost service to avoid minimizing the accomplishments of existing players or skipping any new content at launch. It’s for players who want a way to quickly join their friends in Outland.

      While BlizzConline may be done, the interviews sure aren't, and we got a lot of new info on the Burning Crusade Classic from MrGM's interview with John Hight and Brian Birmingham!
      The biggest takeway from the interview is the fact that BC Classsic will work in the newest Shadowlands client, meaning we may get new graphical options like Ray Tracing and other goodies!  Raid attunements will mostly work as they did, but there will also be improvements, like everyone getting attuned instead of 1 person, and possibly non-current raids no longer requiring attunement at all.  The release Phases themselves aren't 100% set in stone, there's still room to tweak them depending on community feedback. Fresh Classic servers (meaning starting at Phase 1 of Vanilla) may happen, but not until after launch. They did not mention fresh BC Classic servers, however (meaning new servers that you can start on when BC launches). Leatherworking Drums will be changed/nerfed as they feel too powerful and mandatory. The fact that the whole expansion is based on the final patch, 2.4.3 was reiterated, and it was chosen because they felt that was the best balance the expansion had. We hope it won't have similar adverse effects they way Vanilla Classic's class tuning did. The XP curve will also be as it was in 2.4.3. There will be other quality of life improvements that came either with the final patch or even beyond it, like mounts at level 30. Collector's Edition items from the original Burning Crusade will be given to accounts that have it in Classic as well. And here's the full interview, very helpfully marked with each question in the video timeline/progress bar!

      The Burning Crusade Classic will follow the same route Vanilla Classic did but with a twist, with a lot of the game being based off of the expansion's final patch.
      As talked about in many in panels and interviews, the approach to BC Classic is different than Vanilla Classic, with a new motto to replace "no changes". "Some changes" means that class balance will be based on patch 2.4.3 of BC, but the rest of the game's features might not. The developers talked about quality of life improvement changes from the final patch and beyond, but not everything will be taken from it - attunements will still be needed for current phase content for example, as well as both Paladin seals being availabe to both factions. The XP curve will also use the final patch changes instead of the BC start values.
      Luckily, the raid bosses themselves will actually be in their pre-nerf states (although we're unsure to what degree, as some were potentially impossible), so the difficulty should be significantly greater than in Vanilla Classic, where everything was much easier than the original, with more powerful classes due to the final patch tuning and some extremely nerfed bosses. 
      So the approach and "some changes" mantra seems like a good one, as each improvement/change is individually vetted and then added to the game if it fits and is a quality of life improvement. Not all details are clear yet as Blizzard are still deciding on what goes in and what doesn't.
