World of Warcraft Classic opens additional server transfers while changing gold limits for transferred characters

This was smart. This was a good plan. I'm glad we're doing this.

So, how’re you doing over there, WoW Classic? You doing all right? Everything going all right with your servers? We joke, of course, because we know that World of Warcraft’s trip back to Northrend for the first time again has been dealing with server queues pretty regularly. More server transfer options have been opened up in response, along with a new hotfix changing the maximum amount of gold that can be transferred to a new server based on the level of the character being transferred. So that should fix those queue issues right there.

There are other elements addressed in the hotfix, of course, including a variety of quest bugs and skill bugs like not correctly noting skill levels for certain abilities or having NPCs attack enemies that aren’t supposed to be a part of a quest event. It seems likely that the changes to the gold allowed in the transfer will not fix the fundamental problem of queues with too many people being on the same populated servers, but it’s worth a shot, at least.

Activision-Blizzard is considered a controversial gaming company owing to a long string of scandals over the last few years, including the Blitzchung boycott, mass layoffs, labor disputes, and executive pay fiasco. In 2021, the company was sued by California for fostering a work environment rife with sexual harassment and discrimination, the disastrous corporate response to which compounded Blizzard’s ongoing pipeline issues and the widespread perception that its online games are in decline. Multiple state and federal agencies are investigating the company as employees unionize¬†and call for Bobby Kotick’s resignation. As of 2022, the company is being acquired by no less than Microsoft.
