WoW Classic Realms Population Report: August 27th

Recommended Posts

TL1iRjc.jpg

We saw plenty of new realms opening yesterday due to extremely high demand and it's time to look at the current state of realm population after the WoW Classic launch madness.

In this report, we'll be only listing the current population of all realms, because realms that were previously marked as Full now have High population and we don't know whether players moved from these realms to new servers or if it's just the visual bug that Ion spoke about earlier.

Check out our WoW Classic Realm Population Hub for the latest information!

Europe

English Realms

Firemaw, Golemagg, and Mograine are currently experiencing connection issues. Players are reportedly disconnecting from the servers only to find themselves in queues upon reconnecting to the game.

We experienced a drop of players - particularly on Mograine, Firemaw, and Golemagg. Those realms have recovered now but it does unfortunately mean that those who were disconnected are now queued to get back into those realms.

We know many of you are eager to play and we realise how frustrating this experience is, to that end we’re continuing to monitor the status of all EU Classic realms.

Blizzard launched multiple new servers in the EU yesterday.

How is Pagle "Low" but has a 4k queue and 2 hour wait? Makes sense.

 

Because the original post was made 15 hours ago and yours was made 7 hours after it and realms are filling up quickly.

There was a display bug that got fixed in the morning.

Queues are low during “working hours” as soon as 2:30-10pm rolls around kids are home from school, people are home from work, and the queues jump to 3-4 hour waits

This report seems a little ...um.... off. Incendius is ALWAYS high pop... with 4-500 minute waits (at least thats what it says... prolly a little less in reality). Athough is low to medium at 4-5am.  Also, Kirtonos is NOT low... it mostly medium to high (queue times less though, like 15-20min wait less)... and it is high from about 4pm to midnight (wait times 30 to 20 min).

It was off due to a visual glitch as explained in our latest report.

      Blizzard have recently been sending out some more surveys for WoW Classic, this time related to changes that might be implemented for the "Classic Era" servers aka those that will not be progressing on to the Burning Crusade when it is released.

      The questions imply the possibility of something of a Classic+, with new features being added and the game possibly evolving past Vanilla into its own ecosystem, and lasting a long time to come.
      As spotted by Warcraft Tavern, there are several pages of questions asking about Classic Era servers, specifically:
      Advanced layering, where lower population realms would be combined into server groups and players would actually be able to interact between those servers. Possible new quality of life only additions to Vanilla Classic. Possible new content for Vanilla Classic, including "significant changes or new features" that might "dramatically change aspects of the game experience".

      Source.
      Check out the full post over at Warcraft Tavern with a few more questions related to switching over to BC at all and which server players would most like to play on related to new changes added.

      The Burning Crusade Classic Internal Alpha has begun.
      The wowdev2 branch has been recently updated with a new patch! The very first patch of the Burning Crusade Classic is 2.5.0 Build 37796. While we currently have no information when the game becomes available for testing for content creators, make sure to opt in to the Beta today!

      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.
