I’m getting the error “WOW51900331” when I try to login. I have game time on my account so I’m not sure why this is happening.
edit: just read that i need to have game time on a US account… why flag EU accounts for this stress test then??? that’s so dumb =/ i got jebaited big time…
Couldn’t you guys have just ignored us EU plebs and instead flag a lot more US accounts so you’d get a lot more people into the stress test period…?
They let everybody download the client for the stress test, but you can’t actually log in without having game time left on your account.
In other words: If you can’t play BfA right now, you can’t play the stress test.
pretty dumb idea on their part huh. limit possibly millions of people from stress testing, which is the whole point of this process.
I am not playing BFA, i shouldnt have to sub BFA to test Classic and help give them a REAL life scenario of how people might react to classic wow.
This specific stress test is focused on NA/OCE servers. There’s a stickied blue post giving info:
We’ll have our next stress test for WoW Classic on 2019-06-19T21:00:00Z (UTC). This stress test will be accessible to anyone with an active World of Warcraft game account in the Americas & Oceania region. For players who have not yet tested World of Warcraft Classic, the game will become available for download late tomorrow, June 18.
We’ve posted some additional info here.
For this stress test, all races and classes will be available for creation, and the maximum character level will be capped …
Another blue post on EU forums said that the July test will be global.
With 8.2 coming soon I wouldn’t be surprised if they were hoping to catch a few people into resubbing.
Personally I’m not tempted enough just for 2 days of playing, and I’m not tempted by BfA and checking out 8.2 in the slightest. As far as BfA is concerned, I’d consider even WoD better.
i can play bfa but classic is just saying “i need game time” did blizzard break something?
Thankfully not long after i made the comment i realised my problem and was able to get on (i was on my second account that was my issue at least)
