Anyone have an update for stalagg
This clearly shows the 'OMG HUGE DEMAND! QUEUES!' bit is nonsense. This is people trying to get followers for their crappy Twitch streams by playing on the realms where the streamers with the large followings are.
Mankirk started somewhere in the 6,000s a while ago when I started trying to log in...currently sitting at 4878 and 96 minutes as of typing. At this rate I'll have to go put my kids to bed and start the queue all over by the time I can log in, lol.
I played most of the night on Mankrik last night...logging in and out a couple of times with no queue at all...45 min queue now. Gives you time to do other stuff for a bit if you wait it out I guess.
It would be reasonable to allow logging in to both retail and classic considering the level of patience they expect us to have waiting in queue. I don't understand the logic in not allowing it. They are two separate games and you can not have any advantage sitting in a queue while playing the other. Someone please explain this lunacy?
45 Minute que LOL.Bro I sat in que 4 hours yesterday for Herod and tonight I've been in que for 3 already and it looks to be about another 3 to go (currently at 6990)I really hope some people start mitigating to other realms.. all of my rl friends just HAD to pick this server >_>
There's a lot of zeroes up there. Are those all the new realms so the population is super low? I haven't attempted to login yet, was waiting for the fervor to die down but my realm, Bloodsail Buccaneers, says zero. Is it a glitch or just a low population realm?

Really a non issue in so far as anything end-game related is concerned. The odds of people even hitting 40 and getting their Fisher Price mount are going to be fairly low relative to the current population we're seeing. I'd say on the conservative side, at the very least, overall population falls 50% after initial hype dies down, realistically probably something closer to 75%. By the time people are fully attuned, geared, and ready to raid, chances that this queue issue is still on-going will be close to nill, if for no other reason than the fact that there's no way people are going to be still clamoring to wait on line for hours on end in a month if it isn't resolved quickly.
@squishei can you guys please add the type and location of each realm next to its name, e.g. Thalnos (PvP EAST)?
A friend warned me that the queues were starting to mount yesterday at 1 pm. I TeamViewer'd into my home machine and signed in. Was ~12800 in line with 240 minute wait time at 2pm ESTLeft work early got home at 4:15 to take advantage of the early afternoon, but I was 8k in the queue, with several hours of wait time to go, so we walked the dog, and ate dinner, constantly checking in, around 7pm I was sub 2000, and for the rest of the next 90 minutes I was told I was <1 to 4 minutes left in queue before getting in at 8:30pm. So about 6.5 hours in the queue for Whitemane starting at 2pm in the afternoon. A friend tried to log in when they got home at 6pm, and they went to bed at 11, their queue still was hours away.Expecting a similar situation tonight, going to start my sign-in process shortly to compensate.
tbh....why do this at 8 in morning?this is 8-11am for most of country...on a weekday..when majority of ppl are in school or work...p.s.
Who cares, I want my "Today in Nazjatar" to see if I bother leaving Classic for the retail lol
This needs an update. In the past 20 minutes my que position has been cut in half. The hotfixes are indeed working from Blizzard!Went from 6700 to 3300 in about 15 minutes. Blood and thunder!
I think its reasonable to let you sit in Queue for one while playing the other (classic vs retail)... the moment your Queue is over, you get logged off and a message pops in the other telling you you have logged into the other and then you are still only playing 1 game at a time.
Sounds like classic to me, que times. Yes it existed during end game as well except people were like "i gotta wait to play duck this i'm going to another server then" or quit completely.Why is it different in EU and US? Well that's like comparing a banana to an apple like they are the same thing.
