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!

      After the release of Patch 1.13.3, players thought that Paladin's Reckoning was broken, but Blizzard clarified that losing Reckoning stacks when mounting up or initiating auto-attack against a target and canceling it before it goes off is perfectly normal.
      On top of that, they've discovered a bug where Paladins lose stacks of Reckoning if they're not facing their target or are out of range to attack the target when the Reckoning stacks are gained. This behavior is inconsistent with the 1.12 reference client and will be fixed next week during the scheduled realm restarts.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hi All,
      I wanted to take a moment to provide some clarification around what changed in 1.13.3 with Reckoning. There were several systemic issues with extra attack procs behaving incorrectly, which we fixed in the patch. A secondary effect of these fixes were two notable changes to Reckoning:
      Reckoning stacks are lost when you mount up. Reckoning stacks are lost when you initiate an auto-attack against a target and cancel it before it goes off. However, both of these behaviors were correct behaviors in the 1.12 reference client and as such are considered bug fixes. Both of these issues have been added to the “Not A Bug” list.
      Additionally, when investigating the reports around this, we did discover another bug where Paladins will lose stacks of Reckoning if they are not facing their target or are out of range to attack the target when the Reckoning stacks are gained. This is not consistent with Reference client behavior, we have a fix for this now, and it should be fully live the next time we have realm restarts.
      Lastly, while we appreciate the reports in this thread, there were many comments and replies that do not apply directly to this issue, or were unhelpful, and we’d like to remind everyone of the bug report forum guidelines 1. We will monitor and remove unhelpful or off-topic replies in threads like this. Keeping these threads on-topic and strictly comprising information that helps us find and reproduce bugs will help ensure that we can get these issues identified and fixed faster.
      Thank you!

      Marks of Honor Last Longer Than 24 Hrs in the Mailbox Missing Honor and Honorable Kills Bug
    • By Stan
      You can only carry 20 pieces of Alterac Valley Marks of Honor or Warsong Gulch Marks of Honor in WoW Classic at a time. The rest is sent to you via mail and the expiration time is currently set to 30 days as opposed to 24 hours.
      A new bug related to Marks of Honor has emerged in WoW Classic. Currently, the Marks have a 30-day expiration time instead of the intended 24 hours.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Bug: Marks of Honor in the Mailbox are lasting for 30 days instead of 24 hours.
      Steps to recreate:
      Collect 20 Warsong/Alterac Marks of honor Win or lose the BG of which you have 20 marks Check mailbox The marks will be deleted after 30 days 24 hours is the intended amount:
      44 By [bangy][on 2006/12/05](Patch 2.0.1)
      “A mark is obtained by playing a game of Warsong Gulch until the end - you do have not to have started when the battle started, but you must be at the end.
      If the battle is won, 3 marks are obtained, but only 1 is received if it is lost. Marks are automatically put into your inventory, but if there is no space, it is sent to your mailbox. However, note that it will disappear in 24 hours, so clear some space and get it back fast!”
      Patch 1.11.2:
      “once you have 20 of these(inventory and bank combined), you can’t carry any more. when you complete a wsg, if the token reward would give more then 20, they go to your mailbox instead. they are on a short timer (only 24 hours) in your mailbox before they disappear. you can’t get them out of your mailbox until you turn in some of the ones you already have.”
      From ThottbotBy tobiason [on 2006/12/16] (Patch 2.0.1)
      "Subject: “Marks Of Honor"I have 100 AB marks now. When I continue to participate in raids, afterwards (when we win), I receive no marks, but I get a mail from the battlemaster. It is a message that says that I cannot carry any more marks, and has 3 marks attached. I can save the mail, but for only 24 hours.”
      Having marks last 30 days can lead to people saving up marks for a month and grief other people ranking.
      We’re working on a hotfix for this issue. After the hotfix is applied and certain servers are restarted, we’re going to try to modify your mail so that anyone who has these will not be able to carry them over into the next week.
      And going forward, new Marks of Honor in the mail will have a 24-hour expiration.
      Thank you for the report!

      Missing Honor and Honorable Kills Bug
    • By Stan
      Blizzard is working on yet another bug related to missing Honor and Honorable Kills from Monday.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Anyone else missing the monday’s honorble kills and honor ?
      This week tab for me displays 1087 and 69k honor which is totally wrong because on monday i did all day 800 kills (around 28k honor) but it seems this numbers are missing. it only counted yesterday activity.
      That’s exactly right.
      We’ve found a process bug that caused a window of time where Honor appeared to go uncounted, and we’re repairing the missing honor. After the repair:
      If you got fewer rank points than you should have, we’ll increase your amount up to where you should be. If you got more than you should have, we’ll won’t change your amount. And of course, we’re working to fix the bug.

      Honor Calculation Bug Update: Dec 10
    • By Stan
      Blizzard today clarified that they have fixed a bug in WoW Classic related to the Runeblade of Baron Rivendare weapon which caused the Unholy Aura weapon buff to be utilized to snapshot the current +Healing gear. The Healing per 5 seconds would be  and upon switching to a different set, but maintain the Healing per 5 seconds.
      As a result, the Healing per 5 seconds was maintained upon switching to a different set. A demonstration of the bug can be seen in the video linked below.
      Based on the latest blue posts, we learned that this behavior was not intended and they have fixed it with the release of Patch 1.13.3.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hi All,
      I wanted to take a second and clear up any misconceptions about the nature of this bug fix. The Runeblade of Baron Rivendare neither scaled with +healing nor snapshotted any +healing effects in Original WoW or the 1.12 Reference client. This behavior was a bug that was introduced into WoW Classic. As such, the fix that went into 1.13.3 that removed the +healing benefit and snapshotting restored this item to it’s original 1.12 state.
      As this bug is now resolved we will be closing this thread now. As always, thank you for your reports and analysis!
