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.

      Some WoW Classic realms are experiencing long queue times these days and Blizzard revealed they've been working on bringing some relief from the queues to these realms in the near future.
      Firemaw (EU), Incendius (US), and Faerlina (US) currently have extremely long queue times rendering many players unable to join raids unless they log into the game 3 or more hours before raid start.

      Blizzard today said they're working on rolling some changes to reduce the queue times, so either they will offer Free Character Moves from select realms or increase server capacity. More details will be available soon.

      Onyxia has been recently defeated in WoW Classic by a raid group comprised of Druids only.
      Reddit user fouronnes and his raid with 32 other Druids have downed Onyxia in WoW Classic.

      The raid was able to defeat the boss in a little over 10 minutes. Logs can be accessed by clicking on the image below.

      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.
