WoW Classic Population Report: September 19th

Recommended Posts

h6cNMW2.jpg

With Free Character Moves announced worldwide, it's time to explore the population of WoW Classic realms after one week.

It looks like the population of WoW Classic realms is decreasing, as players stop playing the game before hitting max level. Many servers saw a decrease in population in all regions. Free Character Moves have just been announced to help with the situation.

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

English Realms (EU)

A new tab for Spain is available in anticipation of the new Spanish realm launching in the region soon. Players will be able to transfer from any realm to the Spanish realm for 11 days after it goes live.

In addition to that, Blizzard announced Free Character Moves from select realms available in Europe starting September 20.

It sure is, as many players (including myself) simply paused playing due to the queue times.

When I log into Classic and find myself in a queue, I simply log out and switch to BfA and do a few daylies or so.

I'm pretty sure quite a few players will return to Classic after the queues have disappeared or at least gone down to a couple of minutes.

I wonder if the current dev team are shitting themselves over how many people would rather play the old than the new and what it means for their jobs.

Maybe BFA can be classic in 15 years, wouldn't that make it all the more worth it to keep pushing new content, as it can be reutilized later?

I don't think they're panicking about retail just yet. It's in a content lull, most people have cleared 8.2, so there isn't a ton to do once you re-clear your lock out. When they will really panic is if 8.3 launches and the numbers don't shift a lot.

      There's a whole lot more free moves coming tomorrow from pretty much all US and OC servers, in addition to the already ongoing moves to Latin American and Brazillian realms. While the transfers start tomorrow, there's no end date listed, however moves will be closed as soon as a target realm reaches high population. With layering being removed completely soon, and already at a bare minimum now, these moves come at a pretty good time.

      It seems there was a short-lived bug in Dire Maul North that allowed the buff the guards gave after completing a tribute run to stack! A hotfix has been deployed around 30 minutes ago and that is no longer the case, so if you managed to snag some extra power you've had your fun and it's now fixed!
      Dire Maul Buffs (source)
      A hotfix was applied to all realms 30 minutes ago that squashed that bug. The buffs obtained from the guards in Dire Maul North after completing a tribute run will no longer stack.
      Thank you for your feedback on it!
      You can also check out our DM guides as well as an official preview for the dungeon here.

      It's been a while since we got word that something weird was happening with the auras in Classic, with several aspects that affect them already resolved. Today we have further progress on that, namely the part where some item enchants were using up slots and thus knocking off helpful buffs like Power Word: Fortitude and the like, as the issue has been partially fixed. There are still some item enchants that require a slot, but that's what it was like in 1.12 as well so it's staying. Check out the full details below:
      October 15 (source)
      With scheduled maintenance earlier today, we applied the following hotfix:
      WoW Classic
      Enchantments on gear should no longer count as helpful auras. They now count as passive auras. There are still some enchantments occupying helpful slots – notably, the Arcanum enchants that will come from Dire Maul and other enchantments that are applied via item rather than via the enchanting profession. This was the case in our 1.12 reference.
      Thank you very much!
