WoW Classic may see login queues in excess of 10,000 players
For players who are eagerly awaiting the release of World of Warcraft: Classic in a week, some players might be waiting even longer just to log in when it goes live. Blizzard, via a forum post, cautioned players who signed up for the Herod server that overcrowding could cause 10K player queues just to play in the World of Warcraft.

On the WoW Classic forum, Blizzard said: “Based on name reservations so far, the Herod realm is looking to be massively overpopulated. If all existing players on this server remain there, login queues in excess of 10,000 players are a certainty, and possibly much higher than that.”

They’re urging players to switch realms — Stalagg has been opened up for this reason. Realms in WoW Classic can accommodate far more players than their 2006 counterparts, such that a population estimate of “Medium” in 2019 “already has more characters on it than even the most crowded realms did back in 2006,” they wrote. And if you want to Buy World of Warcraft Classic Gold, visit, a professional online in-game currency store.

Kaivax also points out that the realm population estimates of "Low, Medium, High" are set at 2019 levels rather than 2006 levels, meaning many more players per server today can and will be handled. Blizzard intends to run WoW Classic for years, so it's very keen to establish strong communities per realm, but is also "cautiously opening new servers to meet demand."

If you've already reserved a character name and chosen Herod as your realm, go and pick somewhere else. If you don't, it's likely playing WoW Classic on launch day will prove impossible. Anyone yet to sign up should pick whichever realm Blizzard is recommending at the time.
