I read a good idea yesterday - try an RP server because once the novelty wears off (assuming it does), the RPers and the hardcore players will the ones left.

I never had to deal with it in WoW, but I guess it's also a good idea to avoid streamers because they mess up chat and they can mess with quest hubs, etc.

I mean what's the point of WoW if me and my buddies don't do a hostile takeover of Sentinel Hill from time to time?

I downloaded WoW classic a couple days ago in order to pick servers and make characters, and discovered I needed a live WoW account to do so. No surprise there. But what did strike me was that so many of the servers were already designated as full. Like, am I going to be able to start up on Tuesday?

They intend to do layering for the first month, which means way more people than the servers can handle will be allowed in and they'll split people up into separate instances.

So if me and you are on the same server in the Barrens we might be in different instances of the Barrens

I would say public reception to this is .... super poor. and I'm very annoyed by it. That kind of tech is probably one of the most annoying and community breaking things about Retail WoW.

But Blizzard believes this is necessary for the initial launch and then will turn it off after a month.

I mean, I can’t say that they’re wrong.

I think they're wrong. This method is under the assumption that player count will drop off drastically after a month, which may happen.

But if it doesn't, which may also happen, then we'll be stuck with servers with vastly more players than they can hold without a queue, meaning either they'll have to keep layering or open new servers for people to reroll on.

I don't want to have to reroll. And I definitely don't want layering.

Haven't they done free realm transfers in the past when numbers deemed it necessary?

I think I got my fill of classic WoW just from playing in private servers and stuff over the last year or two. it's kinda cool that this is finally happening, but I almost feel spoiled in a way. I'm not really prepared to pay money for something that has been free for so long. essentially I'd just be paying to be part of the experience of participating on an official server. and at this point I've kinda burned myself out on the game anyway. maybe next time I get the urge to play we'll see if WoW classic is even still a thing anymore.
Reality seems very harsh
