Blizzard has issued a warning to World of Warcraft Classic fans that one realm could see login queues in excess of 10,000 players. Recently, Blizzard let prospective WoW Classic players reserve their character names, and as part of that signal their intention to play on a particular realm. Nostalgia-fuelled WoW-fans thundered towards their intended targets, hoping to put a flag in virtual space circa 2006. It turns out, so many people put 20p down on the Herod realm that it's going to be massively populated. Actually, scratch that. It's going to be almost impossible to get into.
Blizzard seems to be taking every step necessary to ensure a smooth experience for players when World of Warcraft Classic launches August 27. This includes maintaining strict realm caps and balancing populations across different servers to ensure stability. "While we are able to fit several times more players on a single realm in 2019 than was the case in 2006, we are not going to raise that cap any further, even though we have the technical capacity to do so," Jordan writes.

This has massive implications towards the suspected success of WoW: Classic but doesn't address the most popular criticism involving the games ability to maintain excitement and an active player base. While a large majority of gamers vehemently declare their allegiance to the new WoW: Classic servers, many other fans of the MMORPG are concerned that all of the excitement is simply nostalgic hype and, while the buzz surrounding the game is high now, it will inevitably teeter off to abysmal lows.
Herod is the overcrowded realm for North America. In Europe, Shazzrah is the one bursting at the seams. Kaivax reposted the same message to players there, asking them to please consider moving to the Gehennas realm. “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,” they wrote, “which is why we’re cautiously opening new servers to meet demand.”
