They're adding servers at a pretty quick rate!  I wonder what their population estimates are for Classic now.  I have a feeling Classic is going to grow like they did back in vanilla so it should be interesting to see.  I think they're severely overestimating the percent of tourists as well.

With the end of Legion and most of BFA feeling like an on-rails experience where the world is no longer the main character along with a crazy amount of Nostalgia from the original millions of subs...I think people will go hardcore with classic for a few months then itll dip hard with other new games coming out.

Despite new servers being added, many people will likely stay on those marked as full. Better to deal with queues initially, than to end on a dead server.

      Update: apologies for the headline, it should have read WEST first - with the leveling and raid race for Classic we used West as we didn't have info from Asia servers so I made the mistake of lumping it in as a "World First". Apologies!
      Here's the article about the real World First, Chinese player LongDD.

      Original article:
      We already reported on the World First Eye of Sulfuras drop some 2 weeks ago, but actually crafting the thing takes a whole lot of time and resources, so it's only now that the actual weapon has popped up in the game! The original first drop came for the guild Venture from Flamelash EU, but it seems Senseless from Firemaw EU focused more on acquiring all the mats and most of all transmutes needed to get the thing assembled! Big congratulations to the guild and Kembria in particular!

      It's impressive that the guild and Kembria specifically managed to get all the mats together so quickly, especially the Sulfuron Ingots, which the warrior apparently got all on his own, save the 1 that the guild provided, simply by getting enough gold to shop Firemaw's Auction House (for around 400-500 gold per ingot). Since there have been around 3-4 viable raid lockouts since the game arrived, it seems there are plenty of guilds heading to Molten Core on the server, which helped get the AH stocked.
      Perhaps unsurprisingly this achievement brought up the layering discussion again in the reddit thread, from the large amount of mats needed from the open world, to even accusations of exploits via the raid resets server-wide, due to the scarcity of Sulfuron Ingots. There doesn't see to be any indication for any of that, and 3-4 weeks is plenty for an entire server to get the open world mats together with Firemaw being as active a server as it is. On a brighter note, there are also the very standard Vanilla call-outs of "it should have gone to a shaman"!
      If you want to see more details on just what exactly it takes to craft Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros, as well as the long-running discussion on whether it's the best weapon for warriors in Vanilla launch and overall, head on over to our spotlight article for the weapon, or check out our guide to acquiring it right here.

      It seems we spoke too soon when we announced the first Sulfuras today, as a Chinese player actually completed it 4 days ago! With Classic it's a little harder to track exactly who got a WF, and in our previous post the comment linking the earlier completion wasn't in yet at the time of posting. As we weren't getting a lot of information out of the Asian Classic scene during the leveling stage we consequently missed this one as well. Apologies to LongDD who got the legendary mace first, on September 17th to be exact, and here's the video to commemorate the crafting:
      You can read more about LongDD and his fellow Dota2 veteran players getting the mace right here. And huge congrats to LongDD for the achievement!

      We have another official tour of a capital city, and this time it's the Horde that's getting a look around their home. With a whole lot of class and profession trainers and vendors marked, and each part of the city mapped, the only other thing you really need to know is how long to spend running around the bank roof. The correct answer is: forever.

      You can also check out the Stormwind tour and the various ways you can get around Azeroth.

      Here come some more Classic hotfixes, as Blizzard have found at least part of the issue that was causing problems with hunters' Feign Death. It seems the spell cancelling for turning is more sensitive in Classic than it was in 1.12, so it's much easier for the Feign to cancel out. The hotfix will address this issue, but excessive turning both during and after the cast will still cause it to fail, but it will be less likely after the hotfix.
      There are other issues also being investigated regarding combat engagement during Feign Death:
      Feign Death (source)
      Hey everybody, I wanted to take a minute to talk about Feign Death. Hunters are understandably very concerned about the behavior of such an iconic ability, with a variety of important uses, and I want to assure you that we’re aware of your reports and we’re investigating. This one isn’t easy at all. In our reference builds, many of the same behaviors that players are reporting do occur, but sometimes with slight differences in timing or consistency, which makes it really difficult to even identify a clear bug in the first place. However, despite this difficulty we have made some progress here.
      The first issue is that Feign Death cancels when you move, including if you turn, and very often high-skill hunters are running from an opponent, turning to shoot behind them, and then Feign Death to drop a trap. It some of these cases, Feign Death is failing because the spell-cancel on turning is more sensitive in WoW Classic than it was in 1.12. We’ve tracked down why it’s more sensitive, and we’re testing a change now that relaxes the spell cancellation to make it less likely that you’ll inadvertently trigger this if you’re trying to stop turning to cast Feign Death. That said, if you continue turning after the cast, or keep turning during the cast, you can still cause Feign Death to be cancelled. This fix will go out soon as a hotfix.
      There are other reports about it taking too long to drop combat, or having combat re-activated because your pet is getting attacked, and we’re still looking at those issues. We’re tracking a couple of leads there, but we haven’t got this bug in our sights yet, so it may take a bit more time to figure out what’s really going on here.
      I’m sorry it’s not a silver bullet, but hopefully it gives you some peace of mind to know we’re listening, and still investigating the issues.
