WoW Classic’s launch day plans include nine more servers

    
18

If you remember nothing else about World of Warcraft Classic, remember the number “10.” That will come in very handy on Monday, as the retro version of this fantasy MMORPG is set to allow players the ability to make up to 10 characters per server (above the three currently allowed) at 10:00 am Pacific Time (or 1:00 pm Eastern). The MMO itself will release at 6:00 pm Eastern.

When the game launches, WoW Classic is also rolling out nine (almost 10!) additional servers: five for the Europe and four for North America. Altogether, if you are insane, you can roll up to a maximum of 50 characters spread across multiple realms. You should be able to level all of those to 60 before the heat death of the sun.

Keep on top of launch day preparations by knowing which servers to avoid, reading up on the development team’s AMA, indulging in a little nostalgia, and, uh, avoiding streamers?

Good lord that man is an idiot.

I don’t think he’s an idiot just more someone who’s speaking from a position of knowledge. A lot of cases people want something, but they don’t understand what it is they’re really asking for. As he mentions all those bugs were still there in the game. All the QOL updates that people came to get used to in games are absent from the game. Even then they already had to give on numerous topics such as patching the game to a much later version or supporting instancing because of the sheer volume of players. Looking even further you end up with predictable questions like as content schedule nears completion what then? You can’t go forward because it’s Classic. You can’t develop new content because that would just end up in the same vein as the live version. From a development perspective, the whole ask is just really weird and counter intuitive.

This is all debatable. I agree that the quote while misguided isn’t all that bad, but Classic only won’t go forward if Blizzard doesn’t desire to.

I actually still don’t want this and have no interest in playing.

You’ll need an active WoW sub to access Classic servers. But no additional purchase is necessary.

DOnt know how WoW is going this days, to have a Sub, need to buy anyting else?

thanks!

My understanding is that you just need to subscribe without actually purchasing the game. So it’s a $15/mo cost.

That’s correct. Nothing else to purchase. No expansions to worry about. Just your $15 sub. After you install the Blizzard Launcher and go to the WoW tab, you will see a combo box for which version of the game you want to install/launch. Change the box to Classic and go from there.

Just a slight clarification – the game is not set to go live at 10 AM PST. The game is still launching at 3 PM PST, however at 10 AM they will lift the name reservation limit from 3 characters across all servers to 10 characters per server (up to 50 total).
