World of Warcraft Classic to Launch with More Realms
Blizzard has announced that it’ll be adding new Realms for World of Warcraft Classic to prevent lengthy wait times and queues which could pose a problem when the highly-anticipated retro service launches. For EU, this means 5 new servers will be added to accommodate players in the region.
The new servers are named Flamelash, Gandling, Mograine, Nethergarde Keep, and Razorgore. All these servers will be Engling-language servers. Also, save for Nethergarde Keep, these additional servers will be PvP realms. The US will also be getting four new servers, two of which will be PvP realms.
Blizzard also shared more good news — players will now be able to create up to 10 characters per realm. Blizzard only planned to allow players 3 characters per realm but may have changed the policy due to community backlash regarding the restriction. Now, players will be able to create a total of 50 characters across all of the Classic realms on one account.
World of Warcraft Classic is set to launch on August 27th at midnight (CEST). The newly added EU servers will, however, launch 5 hours earlier on August 26th at 7 PM CEST/ 6 PM BST, so you can get a small headstart if you create your character there.
As a reminder, World of Warcraft Classic will not require a separate purchase. Anybody with an active subscription will be able to access Classic without having to pay anything extra.
