It seems that they are only counting people based on name reservations and that seems an issue. A lot of people are waiting to play once the game gets reléase. Hell, a lot of people don't know about name reservations

I hope they don't make the release day a dumpster fire to play

4 of my 5 workmates who are playing classic at launch didn't reserve names. 2 of those are vanilla veterans who have dabbled in every expansion thus far, and even they didn't reactivate yet to do name reservations. The other 2are completely new to WoW, and simply didn't see the need to pay early to reserve a name.

I hope they have taken this in to consideration with their population estimates, I hope they aren't as short sighted as using the name reservations only. Maybe they are basing it off the characters made, so basically 3 per reservation account... that would help. If they are doing it per active account that did name reservation, that's not going to work.

Please also note that our realm population estimates of Low, Medium, High, and Full are based on this increased capacity – a Medium realm today already has more characters on it than even the most crowded realms did back in 2006.

They should really change the gui then so this is clear to players. Knowing this information definitely makes me think twice about rolling on whitemane.

We imagine 10k qs+ Why not adding a 4 sever then?

Agreed. I've been reading a book on predictions and this is what's known as an out-of-sample fallacy; making a projection based on historical data that doesn't include all possible outcomes. I.E.: you get smashed at the bar and decide you'll drive home because you've been driving home from work for years and always made it without an accident.

The same reasoning led to the 2007 financial crisis.

I am having a hard time deciding if i should change to the less crowded server (Gehennas) My friends would probably join me, but we would have to find a new guild. I dont think the queues will be to bad come launch with all the layers, but when we get to phase 2 and they remove layers the queues wont be fast and could last hours. I dont have as much time as i did back in vanilla so i dont want to spend what ever time i have sitting in a queue.

Blizzard must be expecting a huge amount of player dropoff for them to only open one more server in NA and EU still.

Who made the decision to create only 2 PVP servers? don't they test or even think about situations such as this?
Good luck to everyone who will have a queue on launch day! you lucky bunch on Normal realms probably made the right choice.

Why, it's a more true to vanilla experience if everything's on fire.

Wrong. The deliberate creation of a housing bubble by the government was what led to the 2007 financial crisis, and everyone with a decent understanding of economics knew it would lead to a crash because the exact same thing happens every time the government creates a bubble.

Which was done under the pretense that a mass mortage default was not possible since they were consulting data from boom years when mortages were very stable.

Shazzrah (EU) has received a similar message today, however the new pvp server, Gehennas, is already High.

I don’t see any way of avoiding the queues really. This release might end up being a train wreck.

Which, i think we can all agree, is the authentic Vanilla experience.
