Since the release of Classic, the game server has been able to handle a large number of players' problems. Moreover, due to the large number of servers, players who are forced to wait in line to enter the game complain more and more.
The opening of the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj is one of the most iconic open world events in the original version of "World of Warcraft". After the two factions carried out large-scale war efforts on the server, the 40th person who entered the game carried out an air attack, namely the Temple of Ahn'Qiraj, and then held it in the Silithus area for 10 hours. Ritual activities.
In this event, a large number of powerful elite world leaders spawn in the entire region, and if the heroes manage to take away a hero, they will receive a generous reward.
Due to the magnificent nature of the open door, Blizzard and classic players both hope that this event will cause Silithus to be in a serious surplus in the 10 hours on most servers.
To test the limitations of the Blizzard server, the developers conducted a stress test on their PTR last night, and content creators like Asmongold also participated in the test. With so many people trying to enter the server, it is difficult to see disconnections and delays. But according to Blizzard, the company has all the information it needs.
"Thank you so much for joining us today to join World of Warcraft Classic PTR," Blizzard Community Manager Kaivax wrote in the post. "We have reached the goal of filling the test area and substantially overfilling the area."
When Asmongold live streamed the event, he experienced multiple disconnections, but please be sure to inform the audience who are participating in them and they should continue to log in.
Because the purpose of the test is not to test the actual gameplay, but to test the capacity of the server, Blizzard encourages as many players as possible to join in. If they are kicked out, they will continue to come back.
The developer has not yet specified how to plan how to deal with the inevitable influx of active players when opening the door, but yesterday it seems to be a step forward.
