World of Warcraft Classic may already be suffering from server overpopulation

Blizzard Entertainment might underestimate World of Warcraft Classic requests, because this game might not have enough servers to launch in a week. The developer has published a new blog post that urges players to switch servers before release. The game Herod's servers seem to be so popular that they expect a line of more than 10,000 players to enter. Players are asked to switch to the newly opened Stalagg. Worth mentioning this estimate is based on ordering the name of the character, because the game server will not be displayed until next week.

"If all the players on this server stay there, the login queue of more than 10,000 players is certain, and maybe much higher than that," he said. "There are a lot of players at Herod at the moment and we want Stalagg to fill in before we open a new PvP realm. This is so that the player population is evenly distributed before launching, to provide the best playing experience."

WoW servers can take "several times more players" than they could back in 2006, but that still leaves Herod with too many people. Blizzard said it could increase the server cover further, but that would only create problems in the future.

In addition to warning of server overpopulation, Jordan assured fans that the strong community remains at the heart of what Blizzard is doing with World of Warcraft Classic, "which is why we have carefully opened new servers to meet demand."
