Hey guys, I was wondering (but couldn't find any info on the internet) what is the timeout for the wow login screen, I mean when I'm at the char selection, how long can I be there and waiting for Classi to launch until being kicked?

It's 30 minutes, however I'm not sure if it will kick you if you're "active."

Follow up question:
Say if one is kicked after 30 minutes, and one logs in again immediately after the fact, do you face the queue again or does the login server hold your slot for a minute or two?

Source? They used to have a skip-queue mechanic if the server disconnected you as far as I can remember.

What do you mean by 'active', though? What if you just create and delete a new character every ~20 minutes? Don't know if anybody has tried this, but worth a shot if you're just sitting staring at the login screen for the next 3 and a half hours waiting anyway :lol:
