Wrath of the Lich King Classic: Blizzard sperrt große Realms

Realms gesperrt: Wrath of the Lich King Classic-Server platzen aus allen Nähten

Wrath of the Lich King Classic explodiert – zumindest seitdem der Prepatch auf den Liveservern ist. Blizzard hat inzwischen schon kostenlose Realmtransfers angeboten, damit die Leute von vollen Realms wegtransferieren können. Ohne Erfolg.

Die Server platzen aus allen Nähten, Warteschlangen von sechs Stunden sind keine Seltenheit. Daher reagiert Blizzard jetzt und sperrt die “Megarealms”.

Grobbulus, Benediction und Co.: Blizzard sperrt große Realms ab

Schauen wir erstmal auf den Originalbeitrag aus dem US-Forum:

Hi All,

First off, thank you for the comments. I understand this is an incredibly frustrating time if you happen to be playing on one of these heavily impacted realms. I sincerely and personally apologize for the situation on these mega-realms. Please do know that this is the top issue on our minds right now and we are actively working on solutions for the specific realms that are full right now.

Reading forums, reddit threads, Twitter comments, etc., one thing that struck me is the sheer amount of misinformation or misunderstanding floating around, so I am going to try and explain as best I can what we are doing now, where we are going, the state and nature of the problems, and to provide a factual look at the actual state of realms that aren’t full right now. Please bear with me, as this is going to be a very long post.

We have disabled new character creation and incoming paid transfers to the US and EU mega-realms, and they will remain locked indefinitely.

This was a difficult choice that we feel is very heavy-handed. By doing this, we will cut off opportunities for new and returning players to join their friends on these large realms, possibly for many months. However, the situation on these realms is completely untenable, and even if we can eliminate queues in the short term, this is going to continue to be a problem when new content releases as long as mega-realms exist. As a result, we’ve made the choice to effectively close US and EU mega-realms to new and additional incoming players indefinitely. We will also be monitoring our other realms and will take similar steps if they begin to inch into mega-realm territory in the future, and we may do so with little to no warning. We’ve been hesitant to this because we really dislike restricting player movements and potentially breaking up social circles, but that ethos is no longer compatible with the reality we find ourselves in.

Free transfers have been very successful so far, but we need more folks to move.

Betroffene Realms nicht für neue Spieler verfügbar

Konkret heißt das: Zu volle Realms sind “abgesperrt”, ihr könnt auf diesen Servern keine neuen Charaktere mehr erstellen und auch keine kostenpflichtigen Chartransfers auf diese Server durchführen. Laut Blizzard ist diese Änderung für unbestimmte Zeit aktiv – also wohl noch mindestens mehrere Wochen.

Von den deutschen Servern ist keiner betroffen. Folgende englische WotLK Classic-Server sind gesperrt:

  • Firemaw
  • Gehennas
  • Golemagg

Aktuell könnt ihr über WotLK Classic auch ein cooles Promomount absahnen:
