Oh Azeroth, how I miss thee. Today was the day! Months of anticipation all lead to the start of a new war…the Battle for Azeroth. The night before I sharppened my sword, polished my plate male and packed up my Goblin Glider Kits. I was ready.
There a lot of reasons to be on a high population server. There are always people to play with and you get a really big pool of players who want to do the raid content, which is what we tend to focus on. When your server is know for being the home of 5 guilds that are in the top 100 in the world, that’s a big draw for people. I know when I’m looking for a server I want to have lots of options for guild prospects.
Of course there are drawbacks to being on a high pop server. If there is going to be issues with log in queue or server stability, odds are it will hit the high population servers first. This is exactly what I faced last night as I watched the hours tick by looking at this screen. Oh how I hate this screen…
I sat there, just waiting for my time to charge into battle and catch up with my friends who were lucky enough to be on a stable server and enjoying their BFA launch experience.
Sometimes I would get a little bit further and I would just be disappointed. It was nearly 9pm before I could log in. Some of my friends couldn’t log in for the first 6 hours of the new expansion. I got a whopping 2 hours to play before it was time for bed. Tomorrow is a new day! I’ll be hitting the leveling hard.
