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!

      Queue times return to some WoW Classic realms with a high population amid the coronavirus lockdown and character transfers. Firemaw (EU) players report 3-4 hour queue times on a Sunday, urging Blizzard to lock the realm and a similar situation is occurring on Incendius (US).
      Redditor ANTRagnarok came up with a graph while waiting in the queue and it turns out you must log in at 4:45 p.m. if you want to make it to the raid that begins at 7:30 p.m.

      Players are urging Blizzard to lock Firemaw (EU) on the official forums and offer free character transfers, as many do not want to transfer to different realms using the paid character service.
      The situation was apparently worse the day before with queues exceeding 3,000 players which resulted in 5-6 hour queue times. Redditor Aoussar123 reports that people are idling in cities hitting the space bar every once in a while to stay logged in which makes things even worse.

      Incendius (US) is facing a similar situation, but the queues aren't as bad as in Europe. The realm was beyond capacity full even before paid character services, then came transfers from Faerlina, Skeram, and other realms, rendering Indencius beyond unplayable according to Redditors. Players reported 2-3 hour queue times on Incendius during raid time.
      Blizzard has so far not responded to any of the reports and we will keep you updated should they come up with any solutions in the near future.

      UPDATE: The issue has now been resolved.
      Blizzard (Source)
      The aforementioned fix was completed with restarts at 6:00 a.m. AEDT, and the Battleground Holiday has been operating as expected on Oceanic realms since then. The first Battleground Holiday has been delayed in Oceania due to a bug. Blizzard is currently working on a fix that may require Classic realm restarts.
      Blizzard (Source)
      The first Battleground Holiday should have gotten underway on Oceanic realms at 12:01 a.m. AEDT (about 4.5 hours ago). That has not yet happened, due to a bug.
      We’re working on a fix, and the fix may require realm restarts of Oceanic Realms, which we would undertake very soon if necessary.
      We apologize for the delay.

      Blizzard today announced they suspended numerous WoW Classic players that were found to be using anti-AFK cheats or bots that automated movement, mainly in Alterac Valley.
      Anything that degrades the gaming experience for other players will result in harsh penalties, according to Blizzard, and they will continue to issue suspensions based on player reports, so if you see someone circumvent AFK rules, make sure to report them!
      Blizzard (Source)
      Yesterday, we issued numerous suspensions to WoW accounts that were found to be violating our Code of Conduct. Affected players were e-mailed with details about the violation and suspension – a great many of which were found to be using anti-AFK cheats or bots that automate movement, especially in Alterac Valley.
      This was the most-recent in a series of similar actions we’ve taken to address unfair gameplay in WoW Classic.
      Please be reminded that using third-party programs to automate any facet of the game, exploiting bugs, or engaging in any activity that grants an unfair advantage is considered cheating. Exploiting other players is an equally serious offense. Scamming, account sharing, win-trading, and anything else that may degrade the gaming experience for other players will receive harsh penalties.
      We’ll continue to monitor reports of and take actions against players who circumvent AFK rules. If you come across a player violating the Code of Conduct policies, please report them.
      Thank you.

      Blizzard has just posted patch notes for the latest WoW Classic update which includes Arathi Basin, two new factions, Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza, Battleground Holidays, and various bug fixes.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Features
      Arathi Basin
      Join the League of Arathor or the Forsaken Defilers as they battle for precious resources. Pitting 15 members of each faction against each other, the race is on to be the first to 2000 resources, capturing strategic landmarks around the Basin to increase your team’s gain and cripple the enemy. There’s never been a better time to join the war.
      Arathi Basin will unlock at 3:00 p.m. PDT (6:00 p.m. EDT) on Wednesday, March 11.
      Battleground Holidays
      Most weeks, Warsong Gulch, Alterac Valley, and Arathi Basin now enjoy holidays that begin on Thursday night at midnight and continue until Tuesday morning. During a holiday, emissaries from that Battleground will be found in the major cities, and honor/faction rewards for performing objectives in that Battleground are increased.
      Bug Fixes and Updates
      There is now a warning dialogue when players enter a raid that has an active raid lockout, giving players the chance to avoid accidental raid saves. Harvesting gathering nodes that are on zone boundaries should now be more reliable. Many particle effects and transparency effects now display more accurately. For example: Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker will appear brighter than before. Perdition’s Blade will appear brighter than before. Particle effects on the Warlock and Paladin class mounts will be less pronounced than before. Fixed an issue that could cause Nefarian to momentarily fly away after revealing his true from at the beginning of Phase 2 of his encounter. Players who are Honorless Targets are now immune to Mind Control. Hunter Player-controlled pets now move in a straight line to their target when commanded to attack, rather than defaulting to behind the target. Shaman Mana Tide Totem should now reliably deliver a fourth tick of Mana Tide. Warlock Blood Pact is no longer re-cast when Amplify Curse is used or Nightfall procs.

      With Arathi Basin arriving tomorrow to WoW Classic, we have prepared guides for the battleground itself, as well as the two accompanying reputations. Check out all the details of Classic's third BG, its layout and optimal class compositions, as well as the specific roles the individual classes can (optimally) play in a fight, several popular strategies and more in our core AB guide.
      Then, dive in further as we take a look at both the Alliance and Horde's related reputation factions for Arathi Basin, and showcase what the best way to gain reputation with the Defilers and League of Arathor, as well as all their related rewards.
