  • Firemaw – PvP – English

We urge players on PvP realms to consider moving to this realm. Doing so will help spread the player population as evenly as possible before launch and provide the best play experience for everyone.

We urge players on PvP realms to consider moving to one of these realms. Doing so will help spread the player population as evenly as possible before launch and provide the best play experience for everyone.

I certainly hope we’re getting Worgen and Goblin Heritage sets in a future patch
We are getting Worgen and Goblin Heritage armor questlines in a future content update.

We think it’s really cool to have these memorable questing experiences that go along with and encapsulate the moment when you inherit your Heritage armor. We’re working on bringing them to the game as soon as we can.

    Again, they are going to have a difficult time convincing people to move if they don't raise the character creation limit from 3 to 5 or something.

    Given how many people have complained about not being able to get their name, you'd think additional servers would fill up quick.

    They're covering their assets and have the ability to say "don't say we didn't warn you" when the inevitable wave of players hit Twitch and complain about how long it takes to log in to Herod especially if the servers themselves are crashing on launch day from sheer volume to create this queue > crash > queue loop.

    If one intends to be a horde of Herod then expect some concessions where inconveniences will become features.

    Theyre trying to cure the symptoms not the disease. They need to just increase the amount of players on the server and then when the population dies/levels out lower it at that time. No one wants to move to these new realms and be separated from friends only to have that realm go from high/med to low/dead server in 2 months time

    DLC is awesome, as usual. Notice alliance/gnome/mage text on character creation in comic.

    They should have opened 4 PvP ones from the start. Now guilds, countries, streamers, etc already chose and it's a mess to change.

    a minor inconvenience when compared to the possibility of adding the servers after release though

    So I guess predictions of Classic killing retail are not going to be true.

    I dont think queues at launch will be quite as large as problem as they were because of layering.

    Lets say each server has 3 layers, that means 3x the normal population can get in. That also means player turnover is 3x higher than normal.

    I think that's a good thing. Those who want English realm can go to one of new realms, leaving old realms those non-English communities.

    Its easy to change realm for guild and streamer now because everything is discussed in one place, not so easy for non-English communities that have multiple discussions on different forums/discord/reddit/whatever.

    The limit of 3 is almost certainly designed to 'encourage' people to pay for a new account to reserve more names.

    Making more realms for a version of a game that will be dead months later has to be the stupidest shit i ever seen in my life.
