The Ahn’ Qiraj war effort is a server-wide event that happened only once in vanilla, and is scheduled to happen again on July 28th in classic!

The war effort is particulaly interesting because it involves each faction of each server working together to gather resources and complete objectives so that everyone can pass through the gates of Ahn' Qiraj and begin completing the content within!

This event spans across the world, and requires everyone from the most hardcore of guilds to the most casual of players across the server to band together and pool resources for the greater good. In the World of Warcraft lore, both the alliance and horde are required to farm resources such as cloth and leather and give them to NPCs to further the war effort and eventually be ready for an epic battle with the Qiraj, an evil faction of insectoids that are hidden away in the Silithus zone.


After the quests are all completed, and enough resources gathered, the gates of Ahn'Qiraj open and a huge epic battle ensues. Infamously, during the original opening of the gates in vanilla WoW, the servers could not handle all the action and it was unplayable for a lot of people. Hopefully this time Blizzard has not only a better idea of how much load the servers will take, but also better server technology (being more than fifteen years later!) to handle all the players, NPCs, and action! ....

Given how much they've relied on the layering crutch I don't have high hopes for realms with any level of healthy population unfortunately.
