One of the most anticipated days of the year has finally arrived. World of Warcraft Classic‘s launch day is here and hundreds of thousands of players are expected to start adventuring in Azeroth as it was when the game originally launched in 2004. Blizzard has been taking care of the increasing demand since they opened the servers for name reservation. The massive amount of players that have created characters ahead of the launch has caused a few new servers to be opened, but insanely huge queues are still expected to happen.

In an attempt of giving the players more options, Blizzard has removed the previous character limit of three per account and now players will be able to have 10 characters per realm when World of Warcraft Classic launches in a few hours. They have asked the players to give preference to the servers that are not already full when choosing the realm they will be playing at.

“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.

You can expect Blizzard to apply a few more measures regarding the server’s overpopulation at launch because most of the time people don’t like to change their preferred server. If you plan to play with your guild or friends, which is quite common, all of you would have to move to a different server. Also, there are some languages not supported initially on World of Warcraft Classic, for example, Spanish. That means that the Spanish community will probably pick a certain server to play and they will chat in Spanish on public channels, something that if not forbidden, could be potentially annoying to some of the English-speaking players.

World of Warcraft Classic – Where are all the boars?

No matter what happens, if you plan to play as soon as World of Warcraft Classic launches today, you are bound to see long queues, but if you are as eager to play as we are, you probably know that already and will have enough coffee ready to help you with the waiting.
