Server Sizes

exactly the reason why they are very cautious about creating too many realms - and rather create less realms initially with layering tech to factor in the initial wave

In the beta, there were 200 players logged in, but many, many layers. imagine how many layers with hundreds of thousands / millions of players?

That’s not “a few” layers.

Blizzard lied to us.

In the beta…

The settings are different

Did you not see the Stress Test? They can change the settings to suit whatever they’re trying to do. Population per layer cap, realm layer cap. These are all adjustable, probably because they intend to put the system into Retail to help improve the Sharding complaints.
