Blizzard has announced that it’s "substantially increasing" its server capacity after huge queues of players began forming to play World of Warcraft Classic.
Since launch earlier this week, images started appearing online of players forming actual in-game lines waiting patiently to complete quests. Outside the game, other queues formed as saturated medium-sized realms couldn’t let in any more players.
To combat this, Blizzard plans to increase realm capacity. Posting to the official WoW Classic forum, Blizzard said "with hotfixes that we are currently deploying to all WoW Classic realms, we are substantially increasing the number of players that can be simultaneously logged in and playing. We expect this to result in smaller queues for realms that have large queues, and some realms should no longer have queues at all.”
