New Instance Limit in WoW Classic

So what?

Why is it okay to negatively affect any legitimate player with this god awful change?

Also, have you considered how many people just stopped doing dungeons altogether because of this change?


This is the same Blizz that after weeks of over five hour queues on multiple realms while thousands of bots were operating openly everywhere and the forums were filled with complaints about it, they let us know they had no idea why there were still queues.

They lie constantly, heck we’re in a thread where the premise of the instance cap change reducing ‘automated gameplay’ has been thoroughly debunked and they still won’t address that.


Trust teh plan good mam, they know better than we do. They said they play WoW too.

It’s a throttling mechanism. It now takes 4 times longer for one bot account to have the same effectiveness as before the change. It 100% will reduce bots, it just won’t eliminate them completely and permanently.

Laws don’t eliminate crime completely either, that doesn’t mean we shouldnt have them.


If a change benefits 99% of the playerbase at the cost of slightly hurting 1%, I’m generally okay with it.

People went from doing + 30 dungeons a day to doing 0? Doesn’t sound very logical to me.

The exclusion of 40 man raids was a good adjustment as well.


LoL, what?

I think we should just start refering to ourselves as ‘‘Illegitimate players’’ if we are against the instance cap. Kind of like being a ‘‘deplorable’’. Seems like a nice title to adopt due to it’s irony.

Well tapers you are not alone as of today i’m also done. They just killed clasic and future tbc with 1 change and post…


I thought so too, it was the perfect fix to any problems with the cap imo. But, as you know, some players are never happy.


Wait, I thought they already killed Classic with every other change? Well, that’s what every single doomsayer claimed.

It was still ok ish, now look at that they are almost shoving it in our …

You’re right, laws don’t eliminate crime, you know what does at least help reduce crime though? Enforcement.

Botting has always been against the ‘law’ in this game. Playing 6 hours a day and spending that time in dungeons has never been against the ‘law’ in this game, and making it against the law with the caveat that you can still do more time as long as its on another server defeats any chance it can stop criminals, what guaranteeing it will effect everyone else.

This is not much of a threat at all. Oh dear, a bot now has to level 3 more 60s, however will they do it? If only there were an automated, effortless way for them to get to max level.

It doesn’t benefit 99% just because only 1% is negatively impacted. That’s not how it works. NO ONE benefits from this change. Literally no one.

Because the 30+ dungeons didn’t affect the rest of their gameplay before. They could continue playing the next day and not be locked. They could still go to ZG later. They could still help their friends in dungeons later.

Now there’s a limited number of clears, so people would rather not risk locking themselves out of what matters by doing something that relatively offers little.

The change hasn’t ‘effected’ me yet, or many other people that have been very careful about their instance use or demotivated to play because of the change.

It’s not about its effects in the 3 days its been up, it’s about the effects its going to have on people that want to play in bursts over the long term.

Some bad people did some bad things, so let’s take it away from everyone, that’ll surely stop crime. WHERE have I seen this tried before?


I don’t think you understand my analogy. The point is, this change will not completely get rid of bots. But that doesn’t mean we should get rid of it, because it still helps reduce bots, even if only by a small margin. Plus, it makes it way easier for Blizzard to ban bots and make it less profitable to bot, therefore, less desirable.

Well, they won’t be able to boost past 30 dungeons a day, so yeah it will take them a decently long time. This is great, because it gives them less time to make profits, making botting less desirable.

It benefits everyone that isn’t spending 6+ hours farming raw gold. Inflation is horrible right now, some things in classic are almost as expensive as they are in retail.

Doing 1/30 isn’t really a risk. I’m not sure what you’re trying to communicate here. All they have to do is keep track of their lockouts. They just have to count them and remember the number.


Bot swaps realms… 30 more instances! Legit players don’t have this option. This change only affects legit players.


Can blizzard just make it a weekly cap of 210 instead so when I am unable to use my 30 per day throughout the week I can spend them when I have the time towards the weekend? This still has the same result and it will show who are bots easily. Bots burn all their instances in under 2 days easy bot confirmation.
