Who doesn’t remember the thrill of sitting around way back in 2004, conferring with guildies and allies to figure out which World of Warcraft server to start on? I certainly do, and I also remember that my guild chose so poorly that we ultimately took the free transfer bus off it later due to extreme overcrowding and queues because everyone else chose it too. You win some, you lose some.

“Relative realm population will be visible in-game to help in choosing a realm so you will see Low, Medium, or High in the realm selection screen,” the studio writes. “If there are high numbers of players congregating on individual realms during name reservation and character creation, we will post warnings about the potential for queues on those realms, giving you time to choose alternate realms. WoW Classic releases worldwide on August 26, 2019 6:00 PM [PDT].”
