Since players were transported back to 2006-style Azeroth earlier this week with World of Warcraft Classic’s launch, there’s been some queues forming both inside and outside of the game. Questers have been forming orderly lines to battle bosses and some realms have been overstuffed, with even ‘medium’ population servers having seen queue times. However, Blizzard’s now announced that it’s increasing the maximum capacity of realms.

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.”

World of Warcraft Classic transports players back to a version of 2004's original WoW that replicates the experience from 15 years ago as closely as possible. The nostalgic pull of revisiting this old version of Azeroth has been a hit with fans, with some on the forums reporting queues of up to 10,000 players to enter some of the most popular servers.

Another sign of the WoW Classic's popularity: More than 1 million viewers watched various streams of the game on Twitch on Monday. According to Twitch analytics site SullyGnome, viewers watched more than 20 million hours in the past seven days. The game predates many of the expansions released over the past 15 years since it was first launched. The WoW Classic version of the game is 1.12, known as the Drums of War update released in August 2006, prior to the release of the first major expansion, The Burning Crusade.
