Service Update for NA and EU Realms
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
Since shortly after the launch of Shadowlands, we’ve experienced some service issues that are negatively impacting gameplay on a small number of realms. In this region, we’ve been monitoring and working around the clock to solve these issues for:

NA Realms
  • Area 52
  • Frostmourne
  • Illidan
  • Stormrage
  • Tichondrius

EU Realms
  • Blackhand
  • Blackmoore
  • Dentarg
  • Draenor
  • Echsenkessel
  • Hyjal
  • Kazzak
  • Mal’Ganis
  • Silvermoon
  • Taerar
  • Twisting Nether

We increased realm capacity to let more players than ever before into a single realm, but extreme demand on a few realms has exceeded even that capacity, so we have dialed down some of our earlier changes. We are trying to carefully balance service stability and accessibility, and exploring multiple avenues to get everyone online and playing smoothly.

This issue is our number one priority. We will continue to work to solve this as quickly as possible, and we will provide further updates as necessary.

Thank you very much for your patience.

    I think they should leave everything as is, I really enjoy this 6k queue for Area 52.

    Give us free transfere, and I'll take all my 15 toons off of Kazzak in a heartbeat.
    But I will never support you fuckers with another dime spent on transferes. Been on Kazzak for as long as I can remember, but this expansion release is just fucking insane. I've had a total lf 4 hours gameplay so far. And today I DCed after an hour, just to be put back in queue.

    Fucking joke of a company.

    How about you let people get the hell off some of those realms.

    Draenor and Silvermoon have become such toxic cesspools ever since WoD/Legion.. freakin' zoomer kids with their twitch talk and other nonsense.

    I am on Silvermoon Eu and Ragnarod Eu and I don't get why people who insist on rolling characters on full servers complain about queues and lag during launches.

    I don't mind it because I know its expected so I play around it, but if this was a huge issue for me I would have played on any other server.

    Proud Stormrage - US resident! Most populated realm and it's honestly been working splendidly, and queue times around 6-7 pm server time have only been pushing towards 15-20 minutes!

    Dead game, so dead.

    And lesson learned, never Draenor on launch day. Thank God we can move using gold.

    Kind of a sidenote, but didn't Blizzard ban multi-boxing a few months ago? I'm on Area 52 and I have seen at least 4 groups of multiboxers just today, leveling through Bastion.

    You can multibox you cant use a third party to automate 40 other characters like ppl used to do

    No queues for BFA while being on A52...but 5k for Shadowlands? Sweet Christ on a stick I want to play but can't due to severe lag and dc's. Can't they increase the pop size? Or as other have said a free realm transfer? I'll gladly go back to the dead realms that are Terrokar or Cenarius.

    Tarren Mill EU here (high pop). Must say this launch has been so smooth, very few issues and nothing game busting. Only had the odd lagg spike nothing major and sometimes have to wait a while to login (comes with being on high pop server i dont mind that). Been the best launch yet.
