Blizzard plans to merge smaller servers with more populated ones

World of Warcraft, the immensely popular online RPG, will be changing its server structure. After assessing the current server situation, Blizzard announced in a community forum that server changes were coming soon. Community manager Kaivax said that after a ‘comprehensive study’, they made the decision to ‘connect the low-population realms to other existing realms’. As he points out, the servers are important to the playing experience online. Therefore, Blizzard thought it was necessary to make a change to the servers.

The plan is to connect ‘every low-population realm in every region to a substantially larger population of players’. Because of this, players from small servers will now have better access to a range of features in the game. However, it won’t be easy to merge all these servers; Blizzard has said it plans to act over 2-3 months. As well as this, discussion forums for servers will be merged. Players will be able to log into World of Warcraft as normal after the merging process.

As the changes will occur during scheduled maintenance, the mergers should not inconvenience players. Blizzard will notify players in ‘advance of each week’s connections in the appropriate regions and languages.’

In other World of Warcraft news, the expansion pack Shadowlands may be coming soon. Scheduled for a 2020 release, the expansion will reduce the level cap for the first time. The ‘New Game+ Experience’, as Blizzard called it, should result in an interesting experience for all players.
