Blizzard is spinning up another WoW Classic server, this time for South America

It looks as though Blizzard is still cranking out the WoW Classic servers, as yesterday the company announced it’ll add a new server for the game aimed at Spanish- and Portuguese-language players in the region.

“We’ve seen a large measure of feedback and requests from Latin American players who are currently playing WoW Classic on many different realms, and we want you to know: We’re working to create a new WoW Classic realm in this region for Latin American players,” Blizzard writes.

“This will be a PvP realm that characters can transfer to for free from any other PvP realm in the region for a limited time. Of course, you will only want to make that move if you prefer to speak Spanish or Portuguese. While we don’t have a date and time for you just yet, we wanted you to know that it’s coming, and we expect to make it available for you soon. We will update you in the coming days to let you know the name of the realm and the time it will open along with free character moves for a limited time.”

In more fluffy fun news, if you’re a fan of both Crowfall and WoW Classic, check out this awesome video lobbed our way by a longtime reader: It’s a time-lapse of the painting of a World of Warcraft dwarf priest by artist Dave Greco. Greco, of course, is well-known to MMORPG fans, most recently for his gorgeous work on Crowfall – he’s the lead artist for ArtCraft Entertainment. Enjoy!

That’s spanish, altho not at all inaccurate. For some reason, games like to cluster all SA together, altho Brazilians and Mexican/Argentinians/Etc really don’t get along well.

Awesome! The poor BRs have had no official server, so they were forced to pick a North American server to meet up on, which is thousands of miles from them. (They picked Thalnos, according to the official forums.) The ping has got to be pretty bad for them! Imagine raiding like that, never mind trying to get the jump on anyone in PvP!

Right now, Thalnos’ population is quite overburdened, between all the BRs and North Americans that are stuffed onto it. Thalnos has one of the worst queue times, and of course few players on any of the full servers are transferring to the four new servers put up to relieve the strain.

This is a win-win for Brazil: it means much better ping for them, probably little to no queues, and less lag. Thalnos players in North America will likely see similarly improved performance as well.

Go Blizzard!

Best of luck for them. I refuse to play on Br Servers.

There are lots of Portuguese speakers on my realm. Good news for those folks.

That’s awesome news for those players. I was curious why they hadn’t opened up any South American servers.
