Most of the servers are really high in population. There's even a couple that Blizzard has said will have queue's as high as 10,000 unless some people choose to reroll onto other servers.

Guess Blizzard underestimated how popular Classic would be.
I used the knife. I saved a child. I won a war. God forgive me.

Or it is excellent spin to have to open more servers after.

I would absolutely roll RP PVP if they had an eastern time zone option in America. Guess I'll settle for regular PVP.

Oh

Dont currently have a working pc. But gonna buy one soon. Looks like all the B8 people are gonna be spread out.

I've played mostly only Alliance Paladin during WOTLK so I really don't know what I'll play. Horde probably since I've never really played that faction.

So I rushed home after work and got into the character creation screen on reserve day all ready to start reserving Desuka.... then decided I didn't want to do that at all and spent like 3 hours trying to think up a name.


I was thinking the same. Originally I thought I should grab an undead warlock named Pale and an orc Shaman named Church.

but...

that was ten+ years ago. The people I played with are old and probably wouldn't dream of throwing away any more of their life to this game, or they're stuck in Fortnight, or they have other friends. The culture I participated (and the person I was) aren't really going to be the same, so this should be a fresh start.

I'll fire it up, and if my backup names are taken, well, I'll look around the room and name my character after the first thing that catches my eye.

I'd love to group up with B8 folks but I imagine we all have our own pace of play. I imagine my East Coast dad schedule won't play well with a West Coast dad schedule and especially not with any sort of bachelor schedule. So I figure I'll just sign up for whatever server and go from there.

It'd be cool if we had the option like in GW2 that we could have our own Board 8 guild while also having other guilds. alas.

As far as newbie friendly, WoW is fine. Some people will be high level quickly, but you don't have to stress about them. If you take forever, it'll probably take you longer to get through some of the content. And who knows about endgame longevity - people might not care to farm MC/BWL forever. In my time in WoW, it was like 3 different phases...
1. Newbie through level 40 mount. You're learning the ropes, exploring, questing, dying, having fun, it's fairly straight forward in a way. The mount (for most...) is the first time you have to legit grind for a permanent/long term upgrade, and it changes your day to day experience.
2. 40 Mount to endgame - The mount is the first thing you've had to really save up for. And in this time, expectations increase - you sort of need to know what you're doing, or to know to look it up or ask for help. You also have friends in the 50s if not 60, and it starts to act as an impetus to get yourself up. You've also likely gotten along well with people and been added to a guild.
3. endgame

Server popularity - it will be hard to login at first! you wanted vanilla, you got it. They might add servers a week later. Endgame, I'm curious to see how people will enjoy organizing 40 man raids and waking up at 4am to kill world dragons again.
