Making sure that the players of WoW Classic eagerly await the Wrath of the Lich King expansions arrival. Last week, the pre-patch arrived to Classic, and the waits of the servers have already come along with it. If it was then there were pretty gnarly, then a bunch of good waiters have now been running until the last few weeks, then it seems that the waits haven’t gone away. Even a week later Redditors still complain about queues or long wait times, some general frustration in the situation and of course memes.
Brian Birmingham questioned one fans’ reactions on Twitter, noting that the problem of fixing the queues was a complex task. There’ll also be a lot more information available in the forums in advance. The short version is: These realms are already 5x older than 2005 realms and if everyone in queue went to a new realm, theyd fill that realm up too, explained he. (It will be very useful if we open new servers.)
In other WoW Classic reports, one of the devs confirmed on the forums that the suspensions announced to players who were not participating in the battlegrounds were unfairly applied. This post further talks about the triggers for automatic suspension, and promised that a review of the processes would be able to be done.
