26 August 2019 18:00 , we will remove the limitation on only creating a total of three WoW Classic characters per WoW account. Thereafter, players will be able to create up to 10 characters per Classic realm, for a total of 50 characters across all Classic realms per WoW account.

Additionally, at 26 August 2019 18:00 , we will open the following new realms in this region:

Name Type Language

Flamelash PvP English
Gandling PvP English
Mograine PvP English
Nethergarde Keep Normal English
Razorgore PvP English

At this time, all realms that have a Full or High population tag are expected to experience extended queues. We urge players on realms marked Full or High to plan to play on one of these new realms to avoid the longest queues, and to help spread the player population as evenly as possible and provide the best play experience for everyone.

Thank you!

Wow, that is a lot of PvP servers, and some great server names too!

I am almost kind of hoping they announce a new PvP server for Oceania too :confused:

Seriously EU gets all the cool server names.

One more PvP server for Oceania would be cool too, but I'm not sure if at this point too many people would be willing to reroll on the new realm. I think we would stay where we are. Too late to re-organize everyone in the guild to go to another server, people not checking discord/forums often end up on "wrong" realm, etc.

Alright I'll give you Old Blanchy, but why is Bigglesworth Alliance? It's a neutral cat no D:
I'd say Westfall is 10x more Alliance than Bigglesworth :mrgreen:

I'm not suggesting any existing guilds/players move - but the folks who rock up solo, new, without plans on day 1 and see one with 10k queue and one as Low population, you will get them going for low pop. This means shorter queues for Arugal. Currently there is zero alternate options if you want to play PvP Oceanic and the server is full - which sucks.

Ah, fair point. There are probably still many players who didn't create a char!

Coming back to this thread...

They are rolling out all these servers so, so last minute. Like these servers should have been out like a week or two ago.

Im against the idea of oceanic getting another pvp server honestly. Thought about it a bit and it would just fracture the nice faction balance that's going on at the moment. If another realm opens up, It'll likely become two pvp servers with each one massively in favour of each faction, which basically will just force you to pay for faction/server transfer if that option actually opens up (not sure if its already a thing or not). Besides according to the reddit survey so far, Arugal has less than half the population that Herod and even Stalagg each have. So I don't think the queues would be too much of a problem there, that and the fact that the player base will start dropping at some point as well.

Man what a show. If the servers are full don't let people create characters, and if you didn't listened to the community when we said 2 PvP servers for EU was'nt enough, when you add more servers to choose from just auto transfer some characters over the new ones.

The funny thing is that yesterday they were saying that all of the EU servers were almost full and to create new characters on the new ones, both PvE servers were full and we could'nt choose an empty one to transfer...

This does not make sense considering all the current Normal servers are at high or full and there are still a couple PVP servers one at low and one at medium. How does this turn into only opening one more PVE server and 4 more PVP servers? Not everyone PVP's.

Because the PvP servers that are "full" aren't just full... they're literally overflowing and causing flood damage and New Orleans is in serious trouble. They're so overpopulated that now Blizz is saying you could not even be able to get IN THE QUEUE!

More PvP are needed to desperately try to smooth out the population.

Atiesh, despite being a PvE server, is now FULL. As a contingency plan against login queues for Atiesh I WILL be creating an alternative version of Chromium Crusade on Old Blanchy. For both RP and game-mechanical reasons (like wanting that human sword mastery for my warrior tank), the Blanchy version of the guild will be Alliance, not Horde.

They sure seem to have underestimated demand. I wonder what their current population estimates are at launch.

Also, I secretly hope that they're planning for a true classic launch with large server queues, lag, and all :lol:

Looks like my guild is about to vote to jump to Old Blanchy. I really hope they don't fuck up launch too bad, I'd like to be able to play sometime on Monday.

I have nothing fancy to add here, but if you've never played Binary Domain, you should.
