WoW Classic NA Rolling Out Four More Servers for Launch

WoW Classic launches today, with four more realms opening for North American players.

Today is the day: WoW Classic launch!

If you've been waiting for this day with bated breath, you are likely fully aware of the game's server population issue. The most popular realms (servers) are now marked as 'Full', meaning players who haven't yet made characters on those servers will have to head elsewhere.

Blizzard has been rolling out new realms since name registration opened, and here, on release day, we're getting four more servers added to the North American server list:

  • Old Blanchy (Normal, Pacific)
  • Westfall (Normal, Eastern)
  • Incendius (PvP, Eastern)
  • Bigglesworth (PvP, Pacific)

These are likely not the last servers to be rolled out for North American WoW Classic players as absolutely no one knows what's going to happen with the new realms once the game launches.

Those who subscribed during the name registration period are already accounted for in the current server populations, but all those people who held off on subscribing until launch day are in unknown number. It's anyone's guess which realm they'll pile onto.

This is an exciting day for anyone who played World of Warcraft during its pre-expansion days or even those who joined the game later down the road, and we'll finally see if we really wanted it, or if we just thought we did.

Ashley spends all her time playing games, cooking, and studying languages. It's a miracle she's not burned out on the whole thing after being a game addict since '89 (I'm old, deal with it). Classic annoying Sega kid, still hasn't let go of Sonic and prefers arcade-style games. Final Fantasy and SaGa rock whatever it is you like, chump.
