Maximum Realm Capacity Increased – August 28

(Kaivax) #1

With hotfixes that we are currently deploying to all WoW Classic realms, we are substantially increasing the number of players that can be simultaneously logged in and playing. We expect this to result in smaller queues for realms that have large queues, and some realms should no longer have queues at all.

We will closely monitor performance and stability throughout this process.

Thank you very much.

My friends are lvl 20 ish and I haven't played yet
Free Character Tranfers?
An Update on Que Times after Hotfix
Is the queue moving?
Internet crashed for 10 mins
How Blizzard can alleviate queue times
Queues are on purpose, Blizzard has sharding
Any word from blizz?
Honestly it might just be time to give up on Classic completely
Server dead
Que times.... One question
Just STOP and Calm Down
Classic Servers Outrageous Wait Times
Honestly it might just be time to give up on Classic completely
Will Blizzard start to fix retail due to the success of Classic?
So let me get this right
What happens if we have these queues in phase 2?

First! 10char





Won’t this make it more difficult to turn off layering before Phase 2?

I guess we’re trading queues now for possible queues in the future.


nice! Thanks

Remove Layering NOW

what difference in sizing are we talking? roughly.


This was an option the whole time? Haha. Whoops. I’ve been having my wife start the queue a few hours before I get home.


Since the restart earlier, Barrens on Kromcrush is unplayable. there is latency issues for every single player and we cannot advance.


Nice! I’ll finally be able to play with my wife and her boyfriend now.


Question, how will this affect the future plans to get down to one layer per server?


TY, this is what people have been waiting for!


not quite buddy. You got it next time lol


I understand the Layering concerns, but for now I think that’s secondary to people even being able to play at all.

This should have been a day one fix, if you really think most players will quit and dont want dead realms just let all the tourist into the servers, if they leave before P2, the problem fixes itself, if too many people are still playing by P2, they will have to add more servers or keep layering anyway.

Why they moved so slow on this obvious fix many people brought up on day 1 just makes no sense, except in a its blizzard in 2019, dont expect competence from this company sort of way.

great news!


hopefully this will allow us to see the inn keeper in the barrens! there are so many afk people on Grob in that building you cant even see the floor.


You know, you could have bought a lot of good will two days ago if someone had some out here and said you were working on this
