WoW Classic - Realm List Populations Updated -- 28 October
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
A few minutes ago, we enacted a change to how the populations are calculated in the WoW Classic realm list. Since shortly after the launch of WoW Classic, the realm list population labels have indicated real-time population levels.

Now, the Low/Medium/High/Full labels are based on peak population over the last 7 days. We believe this provides a more-useful picture of a realm’s population to players who are making decisions about which realm to play on or transfer to.

The realms which have not yet moved to one layer will continue to be marked “Layered”.

    Wish they'd do beta invites slightly different. Had it preordered the moment they announced it at Blizzcon and of course no beta invite. Oh well.

    I have the Collector's/Spoils/whatever it's called and unfortunately all I have is a greyed out "Install" button and saying it will release by 12/31/2019. No email either

    Spoils of War here, nothing. Some guys with normal edition already have it. So nope, while Blizzard claims your chances are higher with SoW, it doesn't "guarantee" anything.

    WHY does it look like beta has only orcs and humans? After a year only that would be... bad.
    EDIT:
    Yep, got it too, only Humans/Orcs.

    Might be all that is available in the beta while their build has pretty much everything. Only time will tell though

    Not trying to be silly, but have you checked the version as there's a Warcraft Reforged Beta version to install, my Install button was also greyed out but ye.

    I'm sure you already checked; but you seemed disappointed so I thought I'd throw it out as a suggestion just in case.

    I sure hope so, because for the last couple of weeks I have had this sinking feeling that the game indeed will be released before New Year... With just Humans and Orcs.

    The reforged website has been update with new screen shots of the undead and night elf factions, along side them finally adding the night elves to the faction select screen. So they are farther then a lot of people think.

    As far as I know I checked and didn't see anything. Here's what I'm seeing on my launcher and maybe I'm missing it somewhere? Not that I'm disappointed, just kind of ugh over majority of how beta people are selected.

    In a way it'd be disappointing, but at the same time I kind of understand since it seems like they are redoing a bunch of it from the ground up with model adjustments, story changes (in some areas) and making sure it's completely compatible with the old version.

    The Warcraft Reforged website has been updated with new screenshots of the undead and night elves... they even added the a picture of the night elf faction on their "factions" section. They appear to be further along then what most think
