This happened on Oceanic Arugal PvP realm as well, huge amounts of both factions got dropped out and then pushed back to the end of the 10k queue. Absolutely brutal
got dropped from Shazzra, 3h queue expected, 1 of my friends had to continue to level because he just has a few days of work. my other 2 friends are still waiting for me, just leveling professions and getting fightpoints.... i am very disappointment how this turned out for us. we have been looking forwards to this sense the announcement and we all took 1-2 weeks of work to spend time together and play the game. (update: 5h in queue now, still says 1h to go)
They know what they are doing, Really? at least 25 thousand on my realm, 6.5 hr wait times, and you think they know what they are doing? They opened up realms to reserve names and get with your friends, that's what i did, i have nearly 25 friends on same realm, and because i cant get in you think they should all have to start again? they said themselves our algorithm cant handle it, duh so 100 thousand people all in queues right now and we cant blame blizz, any other release by any other company , this would be considered a disaster.
Stop being ignorant idiots and expecting this to be smooth, and if you didn't expect Q times then you need a thinking cap.
I mean, people wanted classic, and they are delivering lol. Really though I am glad they are so slow to add servers because I also anticipate a massive drop in players, and wouldn't be shocked to see med pop realms become ghost towns, at least if they add more servers.
Why is it ignorant to expect today's technology to handle this? its not 2004? Blizz just failed to meet the demand.
