Two New WoW Classic Realms Opening In This Region

We strongly encourage players who wish to avoid extended queues on crowded PvP realms to plan to move to one of these two new realms. We expect these new realms to have a population base that is easily sufficient to long support a healthy PvP realm community.

Thank you!

    How are Method planning to be "the first characters to level 60" when Jokerd is leading by almost two levels?

    They have "partnered"? Method is not a company. They just play video games.

    Interesting that the lawsuit says Sylvanas as "Sylvannas" and identified as a "Night Elf."

    Who gives a crap about Method & WSOE. Everything has to be turned into a contest. Sick of those elitist jerks. Let the rest of us enjoy Classic, go back to retail

    Who gives a F*** about Method racing to World first in Classic? Learn to enjoy the game instead of rushing it. Classic is NOT e-sport.

    12 years ago huh. With the 15 year anniversary coming up?

    Lots of Method hate here in the comments, why do you care so much? Can just not read the articles rather than demand everything is according to your preferences.

    Well, if they're going to receive sponsors and donations and distribute it to their players, they obviously need some kind of legal entity for taxes and that shit. Clearly they are.

    No, you can't. This isn't 2004.

    And the '90s were ten years ago. Time dilation is a bitch when you get old.

    I get this old content, this artificial means of world-first everything is why leveling content, in particular, has been reduced to what it has become in the retail side of this game. Want to know why questing is boring and not at all engaging this why. A lot of people in this game don't care about the leveling content. All they care about is getting to the endgame content. It is also why the world after leveling has become redundant and boring. Blizzard reduced world content to a racetrack type of mentality to cater to a few.

    I just can't understand this....questing in retail is identical, it's the same shit over and over, go here and kill X or collect y, this is no different in classic. In fact, once you cross a certain point in retail, the questing stories per zone become very immersive...besides that tho, I never will understand why people get so hung up on the leveling process, what happens at endgame is what matters!! And tbh this is no different in classic, how is the world at 60 gonna be any different then 120? Same grinds to get ready for raid (actually alot more time consuming) there is waaaayyyyy less to do at 60 then there is at 120, I don't get how anyone can see that diff, sure, if you want to split hairs, the 120 grind is also....grindy, but the 60 grind is the same, you have limited endgame content that is very repetitive!!! Nothing changes except the social constructs!! Which is my final point....I think the main people really missed vanilla was the social game and the community, that's what this is about. To argue that 60 is more engaging and less repetitive than 120 is foolhardy.

    Then pay them no mind and enjoy YOUR experience in Classic. They are in no way affect any of us.

    They are only going be around for fun race and once that's over, they'll be back in Retail for actual race.
