    This is reminding me of Diablo III's launch.

    120 vs 120 world pvp (while fighting a world boss) is more the scenario he was referring to. Too many calculations going on.

    They need to hard limit the number of people in a shard. Even if you join a raid group with someone in that shard. More than 20 people? Sorry. Can't join that raid group. Too bad!

    With sharding there is really no excuse at all for servers impacting this sort of thing.

    Expansion launches are what they are, champ. You don't like it? Wait a few days to play.
    Still calling them out, one infraction at a time.

    How on earth have Blizzard allowed this to happen? Back in the TBC/WOTLK days you can understand the tech limitations - there is absolutely no good reason for it in this day in age. Legion launch was good, BFA launch was pretty decent as well.

    I'm giving it another hour, otherwise i'm refunding this game. I refuse to pay for this level of incompetence.
    Imagine when you try to buy it again 3 days later because if withdrawal and blizzard say no. When that happens please make a thread about it.

    Sorry for the late reply. I was busy playing the game? How's that black screen?

    The problem does exist, and it's only the beginning. There is also zero acknowledgment or any announcement from blizzard, which makes them look very stupid when majority players experiencing same problems. Blizzard is cowering in corner that they sales will hurt if they admit to a problem.

    After an hour I can finally log on. So seems to be improving

    Blizzard fix this please it seems every expansion launch there is always a connection issues

    I think you guys are forgetting a couple of things.

    1. We're in the middle of a pandemic. EVERYONE in the world is working and going to school remotely, which means more of an impact than ever before on the servers. People who would normally stagger their workdays or school days were all available at launch time. It's hard to predict what type of impact that will have on the servers.

    2. Blizzard is also working remotely, or at reduced capacity at the office. We saw the expansion delayed because of this, there is a huge chance the launch is being impacted by this as well. In addition, Covid can also impact staffing.

    Have a little patience. This isn't our first rodeo.

    Regardless, Area 52 is a huge server with tons of progression-minded players- the exact kind of people who log in the second the expansion starts. It was one of the last servers to crawl back to life when 9.0 dropped. Launch will be no different.

    And exactly why I'm fucking off to a low pop server next expansion. I wanted to start a fresh batch of toons anyway. Anyone wanna recommend their server? Eastern Time Zone Horde, plz.

    I know. Area 52 is my current server. I haven't been able to play Shadowlands yet.

    Area 52 here. Haven't been able to get on since clicking ICC portal at launch.

    Why Blizzard hasn't put a login queue in place is dumbfounding to me.

    Played some RDR2 and came back 2 hours later. Can't get in, but at least now it's giving me a 'character not found' and booting me back to the character select screen, and not disconnecting me entirely. It's a start!
