Is there any idea on what is the player cap for each realm?

No Blizzard hasn't given out any numbers, they only stated that realm capacity has vastly increased compared to Vanilla servers.

Thanks for the quick response 🙂 Since you are already "researching" the given topic, would it be a possible to make an educated guess on it how many? It seems to me that previously projected cap of 2500 players online per realm isn't right since it looked to me as just in some zones there might be close to 1k+ players.

      Some WoW Classic realms have been experiencing long queue times, so Blizzard enabled Free Character Moves from Firemaw, Incendius, Faerlina and Whitemane.

      We’ve enabled the Free Character Move service for the Firemaw realm, which has been experiencing long queues recently.
      Free Character Moves are now available:
      From To Firemaw Bloodfang Firemaw Dragonfang Firemaw Judgement We strongly encourage players who wish to use a Free Character Move to do so as soon as possible. Free Character Moves will be closed without warning for any destination realm that becomes full.
      Thank you!

      Zul'Gurub, the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza, and the Dragons of Nightmare will be available in WoW Classic starting April 15.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’re pleased to announce that our next WoW Classic content unlock will occur at the same time on all realms: 3:00 p.m. PDT on Wednesday, April 15.
      Hidden in the jungles of Stranglethorn, an ancient Troll city full of peril has been uncovered. Do you have what it takes to delve into its mysteries with a band of hardy explorers? There’s only one way to find out! Zul’Gurub is a high-level, 20-man raid instance with 120 new rare and epic items to uncover. Adventure awaits!
      Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza
      The Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza is a grand new event set along the coasts of Stranglethorn Vale. Early on the appointed day, friendly neighborhood goblins will visit Ironforge and Orgrimmar to inform aspiring anglers of the grand tournament and give instructions. At the appropriate time, the shout will ring out across Stranglethorn to bait your hooks and cast your lines!
      The Dragons of Nightmare
      Something is amiss in the Emerald Dream. Immense dragons with the shimmering emerald scales of the Green Dragonflight have been sighted guarding the portals at the Great Trees. These once-noble creatures crawl with a new, strange menace, not the peace for which Ysera is known. Bring many allies should you dare to confront them; their powers are formidable and they will not hesitate to crush any who draw near.
      Prepare yourselves!

      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.
