I'm currently sitting at 10k queue with an estimated 401 minute wait time. That's nearly 7 hours :sad:

Oh boy, I think logging in 2 hours before was the greatest idea of today...
That worked!? I imagine it would have required a relog after they opened up the flood gates to Azeroth. Smart... I was at work anyway, though!

You know I think I'm just going to pretend that Classic launches next week. I can't cope with the idea of not getting my fix.

Started at around 8:30 am and the queue was around 6k ppl. Still not in at 9:27 am with 1.8k ppl. Later the queues will be even bigger.

Saw a blue post on the official forms just now that kind of explains why even medium servers have 5k+ queues...

https://us.forums.blizzard.com/en/wow/t ... e/271551/8

 Blizzard Entertainment
The way realm population display currently works once the servers are live is that High, Medium, and Low are determined dynamically, in terms relative to the most crowded realms. So a realm with pretty rough queues (say 4k-5k) might end up showing as Medium because you aren’t Faerlina, Herod, etc.

This is how it’s worked for a long time, but the unprecedented size of the queues on the handful of outlier realms is skewing the algorithm. The team’s first priority is stability and getting new servers online as needed, but beyond that, we’ll look into changing this logic to be more intuitive (i.e. showing “Full” when a server has a queue, for starters). I know, this is technically not #nochanges, but then again neither are 20k people waiting to log into the same realm…
The servers are so huge it broke their population algorithm :lol:

How long can you be afk if you are already in the server? 30 minutes and you get logged out to the character screen? And what then? Can you leave the PC on and it won't kick you out of the character screen?

Hang in there guys. If you haven't set down roots and don't already have guilds and friends rooted on a server, set up shop on the smaller ones. Otherwise just hang in there. The queues will die down after a week or so.

I agree with you @Pippina but the problem is, i can not play in low pop servers either. All the 20k+ queue people creates a character in low pop servers. This makes those servers unplayable.
So yeah... İ guess we have to wait for a week or so.

Most of my buddies are going this route too. They're looking to wait a few weeks for everything to die down.

Makes me worry what happens when all these 'I'll just wait for the queue to die down' players decide to log in and start hammering the queues themselves :lol:

Here's an update.

So, it's been an hour and I'm at 28 minutes left in the queue. Position 2848.

In one hour. Kill me.
