WoW Classic players facing 6 hour queue times to get into the game’s biggest servers

Players trying to get into World of Warcraft Classic’s more popular servers have found themselves faced with queues of tens of thousands and wait times measured in hours, as Blizzard’s classic MMO gears up for the release of Wrath Of The Lich King on September 26 (opens in new tab). Yes: it’s just like the good old days.

The tails, VG247 reports (opens in new tab), are primarily affecting WoW’s so-called “megaservers,” high-population servers that have a tendency to snowball as they accumulate more and more players. More players means more PvP opportunities, more roleplaying, more community and social aspects, so their high population begets more population which begets, well, very long queues.
