I doubt it'll really make much of a difference. At this point everybody is itching to get into the two existing servers that are guaranteed to have a huge community.
Old news, and it will still not be enough. For sure! :)
Definitely needed for EU. I can't imagine having only 2 EU English servers. I'm sure it'll fill up quick.
God please no.
Both initial PvP servers are now full after name reservation so it was expected, all PvE servers have low population though.
yes fight over the pvp servers, ill stick to the low population pve servers and have fun not lagging out every 5 min :P
It's an unnecessary cost to Blizzard to create many realms from day one with a risk that half of them stay empty. They and the active player base have NO indicators that the original player base of Vanilla WoW will come to WoW Classic (we can hope for it but somehow I don't think it will happen). In 2009 there were 10 million active players and by 2014 there have been 100 million accounts made. They have reported that maybe they expected a million players for Vanilla WoW, so the fact it became 10 million was already an anomaly back then. I think we should count on a million players, both from Vanilla WoW and current retail, to be playing WoW Classic. If the game version becomes more popular than it warrants more servers and not before...Let the game get settled into a pattern, routine or whatever before we demand more from Blizzard in terms of new servers. My opinion is that they opened the original servers too fast without regard to whether the population would be there to sustain them.Previously I've suggested on the EU forums (old version of the forum) that any realms (whether that be on retail or on WoW Classic) they should close off realms that are FULL in the list, for example, Silvermoon on retail. By leaving it open to let a new player add to the population already there, and it's overloading the server (I think recent technology has made the login time "less" but the problem is still there). The compounds this by the opposite on the realms lacking populations. They should direct people who are arriving at the game to realms with populations of 50% or less of the maximum capacity; not Full realms and not realms listed as High. The same should apply to the WoW Classic Realms. Once a realm becomes "High" the only people who can make new characters are those who already have characters on the realm. New players should only be directed to Medium or Low population realms. It's the only way you will fix the "realm has too many people" OR "realm has too few people" problem that's permeated since Vanilla WoW.So whenever a Classic WoW realm goes FULL give us a new realm. And for the love of the Old Gods, PREVENT an overload of full realms to happen as has happened and continues to happen on Silvermoon (I know it's happening still because I see the comments in chat during sharding or dungeon chat).
They need more servers still... at least 6 PVP realms and equally many PVE realms.
Should have just converted one PvE realm...
there is no telling how many of those players will just be touristsit's pointless to open up 20 pvp realms just to end up with 18-19 low pop realms and one that's fullor to paint a pictureimagine you are going in blind into classic. the server list opens up and you see 20 servers in front of you. 1 clearly telling you 'hey there are people here to play with you and 19 telling you - well good luck finding people herethat's obviously an exaggeration. But it reflects the player behaviour perfectly- Large realms get bigger while others die out. That has been proven countless times throughout wow's history
