WoW Classic Stress Test 1
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
We’ll be performing our first stress test for WoW Classic on Wednesday, May 22, from 4–6pm PDT. During this time, the closed beta test realm will be unavailable. Those who are currently in the beta test will only be able to login to the stress test realm during this time and beta testers can participate using their existing installation. We’ll also be adding a significant number of players to the stress test from the pool of people who have already opted in for the beta but have not yet been selected.

Since the same client is used for both our stress test users and our normal beta users, the name in the Battle.net App has changed to “Beta & Stress Test: WoW Classic. ” If you’ve been selected to participate in the stress test, you’ll see this option appear in the Region/Account drop down menu so you can download and install the WoW Classic client in advance, but you’ll only be able to see the stress test realm when it becomes available.

For the stress test, all races and classes will be available for creation, but the maximum level will be set to 5. The test will also take place on a PvP realm, but since the starting areas are sanctuaries you don’t need to worry about attacks from the other faction if you just want to level up to 5. We expect to put a lot of people in the starting zones, though, and we’re looking forward to seeing what you all do as we test the servers under crowded conditions.

We’ll be actively monitoring the server, sending server messages, etc. during the 4-6pm PDT period and it’s important to have as many people as possible log in during this window! The stress test realm itself will be available until Thursday, May 23 (becoming unavailable around 6:00pm PDT).

If you encounter any issues during the test, you can submit them through the bug reporting tool in-game. If there are any aspects you’d like to discuss, feel free to post in the Classic Discussion forum.

Performing tests like these are very important in contributing to a smooth launch on August 27 and we appreciate your support.

    2006 account here. Any people at or above that got in now?
    Account from Nov 24, 2010 and unsubscribed a few months in WoD. Got access for the test stress.


    Really, I would think there should be plenty of room for all the accounts created during vanilla that are still subbed since that can't be too many people, right? Or maybe we waaaaay underestimate that number somehow?. Anyway I'm sorry for you, hope you can get in soon.

    Yeah, can't be that many; but they also seem not to give out too many invitations; I've been watching classic streams and the servers are not really that populated yet.

    Did get an invite now too, but the stress test invites don't work beyond the 2-day test on the level 5 realm, as I read in a blue response. So not too hyped. ^^

    I started playing in 2017 in legion, but only got the beta invite for classic last week. I played private servers a lot before then, so I think they expected me to test since I was on there. Also on BFA I just recently got the Swift Zulian Tiger for 200k on the black market... ITS OFFICIAL!!


    anyway..

    Good luck to those who are still waiting. Hopefully the many of you get in soon!

    There is just no reason to bring in people just for this stress test and then lock em out of the rest of the beta. It's just rude af.

    I beta tested WoD, Legion and alpha tested BfA. Never did I think wowa.. theres too many people here. Although streamers "press" may have thought so.

    Oh, trust me. 5 lvls in WoW Classic are more than enough. Most people probably past the time trying to complete the kobold quest on Elwynn, or just looking for the class trainer or whatever. Just the few veterans would reach lvl 5 fast enough, and then we only need to create another char to test classes/races. It's enough for a stress test that will give them logs to see if servers are big enough for starter zones in August launch.
