World of Warcraft Classic has not even officially launched yet and may already be suffering from server overpopulation. According to Blizzard who have been analysing the name reservations for WoW Classic servers.
In a recent blog post by Randy Jordan the community manager for WoW, said that based on only the name reservations only, “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.”
Jordan is pleading players to switch realms from the PvP (Player vs player) realm Herod to a newly opened PvP realm Stalagg, to help avert this overcrowded crisis. Blizzard wants even distribution of players throughout the realms, and will not open more PvP servers until Stalagg is looking full.
“Our top priority in planning for WoW Classic’s launch has been ensuring that we are laying the groundwork for strong realm communities that will endure over the months and years to follow,” Jordan says.
The WoW classic servers of today can hold many more people than it could back when it first launched in 2006, but that is not the issue- Blizzard will not be raising the population cap because that will only forestall the problem for later on in WoW Classic’s lifespan. If the problem is not alleviated now, the WoW Classic server overpopulation will continue to increase.
