By Grayshadow, Posted 25 Aug 2019

World of Warcraft classic has been incredibly popular. It began as a private server created by fans before Blizzard closed it down. Now, being revived as a paid experience the option has seen a large surge that servers can't keep up. Blizzard has promised more servers will come next week, but not all the news was exciting. With Blizzard confirming during a Reddit AMA that the classic "Skeleton" feature will be removed.

First off, the servers. Blizzard acknowledges that there is a high population of players yearning to get into the Classic mode.

Additionally, at this time, based on their expected population and queues, we strongly advise people to move off the following realms:

  • Herod – PvP
  • Faerlina – PvP
  • Whitemane – PvP

If you are currently planning to play on one of these realms, you should expect extremely long queue times that take several hours to get through. In order to have a better play experience, we urge players on these realms to consider moving to the Blaumeux (Pacific Time Zone) and Skeram (Eastern Time Zone) realms.

All of the existing realms have a healthy population. Even a Full realm in 2006 would be Low by our current metrics. Any realm that is listed above Medium should expect queues at launch, with increasing severity from High to Full.

As for the skeleton feature, this feature us being removed to prevent players from "spelling out advertisements, hate speech, and other negative messages. As such, this will not be a part of WoW Classic." For those unaware, skeletons would appear after a dead player was revived. These served as indicators that something major happened here, usually a PvP battle or a massive wipe against a PvE boss.

As expected, fans are not happy about this. Expecting the core experience for World Warcraft Classic

World of Warcraft Classic will be out for PC on August 27.
