We’re at T-minus one week until the launch of World of Warcraft Classic, and Blizzard is hoping that it can get its server populations balanced out by the time the craziness hits. One of the crisis spots right now is the Herod PvP realm, which the studio says is so overpopulated that it could face up to 10,000-player queues if people don’t shove off and game elsewhere.
“While we are able to fit several times more players on a single realm in 2019 than was the case in 2006, we are not going to raise that cap any further, even though we have the technical capacity to do so,” Blizzard explained. “Raising realm caps would simply forestall the problem, letting more players in at launch but creating an unsustainable situation down the line, with severe queues when we turn off layering permanently before Phase 2 of our content unlock plan.”
Meanwhile, fan site Icy Veins has put up an incredibly helpful and informative WoW Classic content hub, complete with all of the guides, information, and links to add-ons that you will need. And if you need more help in getting psyched up, there’s a cool fan-made WoW Classic trailer that’s making the rounds. We’ve posted that for you below.
