WoW Classic Stress Test – June 19-21

This stress test will be accessible to anyone with an active World of Warcraft game account in the Americas & Oceania region. For players who have not yet tested World of Warcraft Classic, the game will become available for download late tomorrow, June 18.

For this stress test, all races and classes will be available for creation, and the maximum character level will be capped at 15. In addition to the open world, there will be instanced content available at that level. This will include Warsong Gulch for PvP as well as Ragefire Chasm, Wailing Caverns, and Deadmines. Of course, Deadmines will be a challenge for players to complete at this level.

Please focus as much play as possible during the first three hours of the stress test. During this time, we’ll be looking for more issues to address under initial launch conditions. The stress test realm will remain available for 48 hours.

If you encounter any issues during the test, please let us know by using the in-game bug reporting tool. If there is anything you’d like to discuss further, feel free to post here in the Classic Discussion forum.

Thank you very much!

Do you have to have BFA on your account with the active subscription?
You do not have to have BFA to participate in this stress test. It’s available to everyone in the region with an active WoW subscription.

    As a EU citizen I feel really offended by this /s.

    Honestly I'm glad I'm not invited. Wasted so much time on the first two stress test's and I'm just not able to not participate but honestly I should just save myself for the release. It's just around the corner and spoiling myself in the stress test is just such a waste at this point. Still I would do it if I got invited, like with the previous two...

    What purpose does it serve to only allow America and Oceania access? Im curious by this

    Unfortunately its the latter. Devs are in US, it would make sense for them to test in US time zone and with smallest possible latency.

    I know it sucks to feel left out, and it still seems limiting, but they are letting in a ton more people than have been in yet. I wouldn't be surprised if other zones get tested soon. They'll want to test the latency at some point

    It simulates launch conditions quite effectively(just 10x-50x less people logging in at the same time). There aren't many people who will try to connect to NA from EU during launch.

    Yea there won't be much to do on this stress test. Wish they would have bumped it to 20 but I guess they don't have any real reason to let us have a slightly bigger piece of cake. I don't think i'll mess with this stress test, will just wait for the actual release.

    Servers are going to crash and burn.... they couldn't handle the limited amount of people in the LAST stress test that was even lower than the first because people gave up on it.

    I wish there was no sub requirement but at the same time, i'm not gonna be a dipshit and act entitled because of it. The question is... worth subbing to for 3 days? or nah? Probably nah lol the lag and unplayable lag will be absurd.

    To be honest it wasnt too bad.
    the utter pain is the mob spawns each quest taking 4-5 hours even when groups are formed.

    Means ur in the stress test now. You can play on the above dates.
    If you can play it right now, you're also in the beta.

    It's the same client, but getting Stress test doesn't mean you get beta also.

    God forbid that was the purpose of a stress test, to stress test servers...

    Clearly they think their current solution will fix it, why else you think there's a ST again?

    They stress tested something alright, but it wasn't what they intended to test. And pretty sure this test was scheduled already, so that is the entire reason there is another stress test.

    Honestly IDC about how bad they are, it's just funny, but I really hope they don't take these tests as a sign and open too many servers....
