    I was Paladin in Vanilla. What if I mained Shaman this time around? IDK. Still debating if I want to do this or not. I honestly only want to play AV despite it not being old AV. Havnt had a good faction based PvP experience in years.

    There was a different sort of queue on Zandalar Tribe (EU RP-PvP). My lasting memory of launch night will be characters waiting in an orderly line for their turn to kill Garrick Padfoot in Northshire.

    It was a very different queue last night on the Pagle server.  It was awesome to see people lining up to wait their turn to kill quest NPCs or to loot quest items.  Let's just hope that kind of gamesmanship lasts long after the newness wears off. 
    True.  I had a couple names to kill in my time last night.  Ran up to spawn point, asked for invite was told it was full so I sat back.  When they finished I invited whoever ran up next and we did the same thing.  Other people waited on us and so on and so forth.

    They just announced they are going to add 3 new US servers.
    They went from 7 two weeks ago, to 23 right now, and that's only US.
    EU is on 23 already and here is 4 AM, wait until peak time, they will have to add many more.

    No one wanted Classic LOL!

    NA alone has 242 non-classic servers.

    So long ways to go for Classic to overtake retail (hint it wont happen)
    All empty.

    So Blizzard is running 242 empty realms in NA ..... seriously?
    Are all those realms really individual realms?

    They have all kinds of phasing and realm/instance sharing correct?

    Honestly I won't get the chance my sub is up in three months because i bought six months when I started playing BFA but after tonight I don't expect I will go back. Just to many other games to play and WoW classic will never, hopefully, be updated in a meaningful way. No expansions, new content, etc......................http://www.v88.ca/3ce1

    What was weird is that last night I was grouped with two of my sons. We all got booted and we all logged back in within seconds of each other.

    I got back in instantly and both my sons had to wait for hours in a 7000 person que.

    I'm wondering if I having an ongoing WoW subscription for years and them only recently reactivating their accounts for Classic had anything to do with it.

    The only thing that's weird is how can a "Medium" realm have a queue ?

    Opposite for me... I wanted to play Tauren Shaman/Hunter but I'm stuck with alliance because of friends.

    I'll still level horde chars too... on a RPPVP server ;)

    I tried the progression server in EQ2 when it launched. I liked it, but somehow the knowledge people were already at level 50 a day or two AFTER LAUNCH put a damper on my mood. I think that factored into why I lost interest. It just didn't feel like CHALLENGE was the aim, rather merely the content itself. A good aim, but felt lacking. And frankly I never played early EQ2. In fact, the earliest I played was 2010, and I quit after a month because I was sick of the hand holding, lazy leveling schemes (people rocketing through the levels made it feel cheap; i was level locked most of the time, yet even then all my experience was still be stored for when i reenabled leveling), and the feeling the old content I was doing was no longer meaningful. I felt like someone abandoned; not valued. I was just hoping for something with more bite, with a longer tooth.

    I wonder if same thing will happen in classic WoW. You'll realize it's mostly modern WoW with a new skin. People will rocket through the levels and it'll feel cheapened. You'll wonder why you're there. The only saving grace is hte  content is meaningful again. That may be enough for some.

    Here's the thing. I may go back. The pvp progression server was released. But given the PvE-only launched in March, and I only played for less than a month about, it's possible I'll never play again, or even if I do not long. There're just too many other MMORGPs/MMO's I can be playing. I work, so I don't have infinite time to devote to every possible game. There needs to be a compelling reason, otherwise it's not going to be on my radar very long. More likely, I'll return to Wurm Online, since I've been there off/on for years. Or i'll try something out of curiosity, like SWTOR.

    Still, they did get $30 from me, even though I didn't play for a month. I wasted my second month of subscription. Lost interest. I  almost accidentally paid for a 3rd month, but fortunatley they cancelled it for me. If I play again, they might get $45 total. In essence, that's like the full price of a PC game. Not bad, but I wonder how mcuh they spent developing the progression servers?

    Im just having a good time at Brill where tailors offer free bag if you give them mats, people buff you and /wave, someone random will stop and help you with a certain hard mob, give you potions, foods, sometimes gear. People are friendly on general 1. I know most of players there by name already.... Last time I had this friendly environment was in LoTRo, so Im not in a hurry to be honest. This experience is exactly what I was looking for.

    Basically clicking away text windows ruins every MMO, try to have fun instead of rushing things. Without story and lore all there is left is a bunch of mechanics.

    Peak time in the EU English Servers:
    20 Servers out of 23 are on Full or High, the other 3 on Medium.
    Waiting times on Full is 5 hours, on High is 1.5 hours.

    I know it is still too early to cry, but I seriously think Blizzard got their numbers wrong by underestimating the demand.
    What if population doesn't drop like they expected?
    Since the Server at the moment are accommodating 3 times the optimal numbers of players, if 2/3 of those players won't quit, will those queues and Sharding go on forever?

  • RobokappRobokapp Member RarePosts: 6,217
    it drops off in a month. it's been the same story when Aion was launching, when Age of Conan was launching etc. I know there hasnt been a big MMo launch in years but trust me, this isn't new. Queues will be manageable by end of next week.

    None of which ever got close to WOW playerbase or success.
    I also described the difference between WOW Classic and other progression Servers.
    WOW is the only one which is carbon copy of the original, while most of the other MMOs progression servers are just modern version of the games that allows you to play old content as if it was a fresh launch.
    Most people don't want to play just old content, they want to play the old mechanics and gameplay.
    Classic offers that.

    My point was though that even though population might eventually drop, it should drop by 2/3 in order for the Sharding and queues to go away.
    I don't see 2/3 of people quitting Classic after 3 months.
    Maybe 1/3 after 3 months, and 50% after 6 months.
    In both cases the servers will still be way overcrowded.

    I just tested two of the high realms, no waiting time. Full realms should all have some waiting time.

    But I guess we'll see a lot more about population on Monday. First weekend should be the busiest time.
