Blizzard Speaks Up About the MASSIVE Server Queue

Blizzard Speaks Up About the MASSIVE Server Queue

It’s official, the Wrath of the Lich King classic launch is gonna be.

 

What Does Blizzard Plan To Do Regarding The Massive Server Queues

 

For lack of a better word, a shit show, we’ve seen server queues in the pre patch that take literally nine hours only to even get into a game that isn’t even working because the servers are so full that the actual servers are broken, you can’t lose anything, you can’t play the game you can’t read. You can’t quest.

Nothing works within a dungeon within a raid or even an open world. It is absolutely insane. And a lot of people have been asking, what is Blizzard going to do about this? How can they fix these massive queues.

And they finally actually spoken out today about this. And I want to say a huge shout out to algorithm that put it together in a huge post so that we can see everything that’s going on. But long story short, things aren’t really gonna get better.

Now real fast. Before we get into the post itself and talk about what’s going on with the servers, I will say I have finally updated all of my week or as so you can see my dk HUD and everything else is actually fully updated with buffs tracking with all of your CDs tracking, and all of the debuffs that’s finally updated. And I finally have that all within the actual discord channel. All of my week was for all classes, all specs that I play.

And since this isn’t the video that I was planning to release today, this won’t be the video with a giveaway for the 30k subs. But again, there’s going to be a huge giveaway at 35,000 subscribers on the YouTube channel. So thank you guys so much for the support, make sure to join the channel memberships for exclusive content that I’m going to be releasing this weekend. And again, I just love you guys, thank you so much for the support. It’s like Unreal. Thank you. Okay, let’s get into it. Okay, so I’m sure you’ve all seen posts like this, or just experienced it yourself by this point.

Basically, all of the mega servers have queue times so long that if you’re not already logged into the game, early on, maybe remote desktop in in or something like that, at peak hours, you’re for sure not making it in, you’re absolutely missing your race times, you’re probably not even going to be able to play if you try to get home from work, and then just sit back and play World of Warcraft. That’s not happening right now, because there’s huge queue times on all the servers that we like to play on.

Well, today, Blizzard responded, basically kind of breaking everything down for us. And letting us know what’s going on their first course of action was to disable new character creation and incoming paid transfers to the US and EU mega servers.

This is kind of nice to be honest, because with people returning to play this game, as soon as the launch is going to come up, servers are going to get only more full as people are returning to play this game, or just trying it out for their first time and everybody kind of flocks towards these huge mega servers, because they’re just told to go there.

So with wrath being one of the most favorite expansions in the game, if an infinite amount of people can come on and fully joined the only few servers that are alive, then we’re just going to see these queues absolutely skyrocket even further. Well, they’ve announced three character transfers off of the actual mega servers. And they’ve claimed that this has been really successful. So far.

This personally, for me is not the best solution, but it’s the best thing they currently have. Realistically Now, you might be thinking this doesn’t work. Because your entire guild is on that mega server, you can’t just ask your entire guild to transfer off, a lot of your friends are over there. Well, this is definitely a concern that they know. But this is mainly aimed towards the people that don’t have those huge social circles.

In game. If you don’t have an established social circle, you don’t have a guild that you love to play with, you’re returning to the game, not all of your friends are playing on the same server, then you actually would rather play in a realm that you can actually play the game on, then you would be on a realm that’s basically accused simulation.

But does this really help the general population of the game? Realistically, the unfortunate answer is basically no. So what about maybe adding layers or expanding the actual hardware or infrastructure so they can handle more people on these mega servers? Well, that’s the next thing they address.

Of course, apparently, layers are not the solution. And this is kind of something that I was thinking and I think most of the community was thinking as well just add more layers, or upgrade your hardware so that you can actually handle more people inside of the game layers themselves basically work so that in game areas aren’t too crowded.

Whenever too many people are in a small area within the game, they will add more layers so that it’s not like everybody is farming the same mob, but it doesn’t actually increase the server’s capacity. Not gonna lie, I was pretty confident I knew exactly how this all worked. But I also thought that it increased the actual servers capacity for handling more players.

But since that’s not the truth, we’re faced with this unfortunate reality that the mega realms are genuinely full. The more people that load into the game increases the load on the actual strain of the server’s themselves.

This means it makes it a lot harder to cast spells for the game to register looting anything and that’s like a huge one on Ghana’s right now in most of my raids, you’re actually told not to lose any of the trash or else it’ll crash to the realm crash the actual array Everyone will be deseed. And you can’t get back in for at least 20 minutes. So it is a terrifying thing right now.

And Blizzard is kind of sad with this blue Post that it literally is not getting better, because they can’t make it better, they’ve actually announced that there is no such thing as improving their hardware even more to increase server capacity.

Apparently, there’s literally not even the technology right now available in the world to increase this. Now I’ve of course heard from a lot of people that are data analysts, data scientists are actually just programmers and they say that it should be an easy fix. Maybe we’re just kind of wrong. I’m not 100% Sure.

But realistically, if they’re saying that they fully invested in all of the infrastructure possible to make these limits higher, and it’s not a thing that can happen anymore, I feel like that’s kind of a sign that no matter what, we’re screwed, the launch of Wrath of the Lich King is going to be worse, no matter what the queue times are going to be worse, no matter what, if you ever get deseed, or logged off, you’re not getting back in the game. Remember, the launch for actual classic will now it’s going to be a lot worse than that.

And I actually mean that it’s literally going to be worse than the actual launch of classic when it first came out, because these servers are so full. And so past capacity, that there’s nothing Blizzard can do. They can’t force you to transfer off because then you’re going to be split up from all of your guild mates, all of your friends, all they can do is offer us a free way to transfer.

And that is a hard pill to swallow. It’s like the worst thing we could hear. It’s exactly what we did not want to hear. I thought they were going to announce something like we’ve upgraded everything, we invest in millions, and now everybody’s going to have a smooth time.

Well, it’s the complete opposite. They’re basically announcing that no matter what we do, we’re kind of screwed. I hope you get into the game and can actually play the game on launch. Good luck to you all.

And on Monday, I will be putting out a new death night video basically decays for Dummies, which will have the giveaway in it where I’m going to actually have you guys helped me choose what tattoo I’m going to get. Because that was a sub goal on Twitch.

So I’m going to let you guys in the comments of the video on Monday, decide what tattoo I’m going to get. And then we’re going to pick the winner from that if you give me the best idea for a tattoo, you’re actually going to win a level 70 boosts thank you guys again for watching the video.

I’m sorry that this was another blue post video instead of something more exciting. But this was huge news and I had to let you guys all know about it one last time, make sure to like subscribe, because it obviously helps out the channel. Let me know what you think about this. If there’s actually some sort of way that they could fix this.

Let me know in the comments. Try to let them know in the comments because they are actively looking at Twitter feeds Reddit posts, YouTube YouTube comments. They’re looking at this and trying to figure out what they can do to make the game better. So let everybody know in the comments. Thanks, guys, and I’ll see you all on the next one.
