    By 'realms' with hour long queues you mean 1 realm in EU and 1 in US? Oh yeah how servers will survive, totally everyone who just want mount will roll character where you have to wait minutes/hours to log in xD.

    And don't tell me I'm bullshitting, I checked literally right now EU English, prime time, 11 out 12 servers had no queue, fresh PVP had 2500 queue. And 3 realms locked, but again, who the hell roll temporary character on crowded realm while there are locked ones.

    There's plenty of low-pop classic realms, you'll be auto-directed to one upon your first launch of wotlk classic landing you in character creation immediately.

    Blizzard literally made a long ass post how the servers are their limit and they can't do anything about it.

    Like please, if you want to tell that people are just imagining these server issues, then i can't help you.

    Not all servers are that way. I just literally logged on to my server with NO queue. Also, read the rest of his post. YOu will see him give details of servers currently.

    You have to have an active retail sub to play WOTLK Classic.

    How do you tell if someone is not subbed to wow? Don't worry about it, they'll tell you soon enough.

    Yes, I am imagining logging to server and creating DK without any issues. After I log in, there was one more guy around. I waved at him.

    But yeah, I am imagining that because Blizzard make blue post xD.

    Then read my own post.

    Just comes across as awfully nitpicky to obsess over the fact that i didn't acknowledge at every point that not all servers are affected when pointing out that a cross promotions while having server issues isn't the greatest of timing.

    Completely disregarding that claiming only a single server has queues just ignores that in the previous week, it was certainly more than just one (just naming both Grobbulus and Benediction here) and Blizzard now locked multiple for new players.

    Yeah because Blizzard just makes long ass posts about server population and stability for no reason whatsoever, especially they also literally admit that some servers are at their cap and they have no further solutions to offer other than having less people playing on them.

    If you want to sit here and pretend that the servers didn't have severe issues last week and everyone just pulled this out of their ass, then i repeat: i can't help you.

    Read a paragraph like this and tell me that's just some hoax people are conjuring up:
    So put as plainly as possible, we cannot increase capacity any more without inviting additional and likely cascading failures to the service. At present, the best and only way to resolve this issue for the impacted realms, is for people to leave the realm via free transfers. There’s no technology solution to this. There is no hardware solution to this. This situation will not improve when Wrath of the Lich King Classic launches on September 26th, it will only get worse.

    Aha. Still apply to 1 server out of 12 as me and others here remind you constantly. Is it really THAT hard to understand people can get through this event with 0 issues? And it doesn't change situation on this 1 server at all?

    it was nice surprise when i logged in the evening and the mount was already there

    wont complain about cool looking dragon mount besides how annoying it will be that it will be ground non-flyign dragon on dragon isle because real flying will be gated ehind renown .

    Again, multiple servers, not just one, had issues last week.

    So just to be clear, I don’t need to have already have a classic char to make dk right? I can dl it, make a dk , then delete it asoon as I finish the storyline?
    Cause that is a bitching awsome mount

    I mean it's free to everyone and isn't particularly hard to earn, do people need to try and find a bad side for EVERYTHING?

    What? It takes like 30 mins dude.
    You a DK starting zone speedrunner or something? Haha, I’m not totally serious, I don’t really mind doing it for the mount - I actually kinda enjoyed doing it.

    Man it's a cool model but the proto-drake animation has been slightly broken since Cata :/
    When you fly forward and the wings are flapping the whole body like ... vibrates. Once I saw it I couldn't unsee it and now it bothers me lol

    It's a proto drake, it's fugly by default.

    I'd like to add I've had 0 issues getting into my US Classic server as well. No queue at all
