The new servers (Bigglesworth, Old Blanchy etc.) opened more or less on time, but the 3-character limit hasn't been lifted yet. So far we have been treated to neither a shitshow nor the actual game. Very disappointing.

The 3 character limit wasn't supposed to get lifted until 3PM PST when the gates open and the game goes live.

Patience, young son. We're just a few short hours away from the promised land.

I thought it was supposed to be when the new servers came online.

Am I the only one who desires a shitstorm for launch? It's part of the experience! Tons of people flooding in, craving this beautiful game. It'll be amazing!

Yeah, you're right. I thought it was getting lifted at launch time, but this blue post backs you up:

Today 10:00 AM(PST), 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.
Guess they're just late.

Pip, the 3 character limit was supposed to be lifted at the same time as those realms going online.

I didn't even bother taking off time for the launch. Yeah I'm going to sink mass amounts of time into this game and going to love it, but I'm fully expecting it to have a rough start :lol:

Yeah I must have read it wrong a few days ago when they announced it. I'm having a hard time keeping track of all the times posted from different time zones.

Like how your post says 12PM :lol:

Stupid time zones.

They changed the text from 'low population' to 'recommended' :lol:



That's one way to keep people off the full servers :lol:

Nope! I'm looking forward to the shitstorm! I'm expecting it, will actually be a bit sad if the datacenter HVAC doesnt fail and the volume of players dont cause the DC to overheat!

Yup, they were about half an hour late with lifting the 3-character limit but I now have ~20 characters across various realms, half of whom are named "foodbank"

Yeah, weird that it auto converts in the browser, but oh well.

I've got my character set duplicated on Fairbanks and Biggles both, will see how bad the queues are tonight for my final determination.

Also bananas how three of their four new US realms are already "Medium." Granted most of the people who really want to play have characters on multiple realms now, which is likely throwing those off.

i made toons on the new server less of a wait, am assuming their be queue times and less fighting for mobs is a win win. their be plenty people running around for awhile so it won't be empty.

There are no low-pop servers left. They are now all Medium or higher. That didn't take long.

Yeah, once people started having 20 characters across various realms the populations counts became even more off than before. One person can be on 10 or 15 different servers now, counting towards their populations, but only being able to play on one at a time.
