In this post, you will find everything you need to know about World of Warcraft Classic server populations. World of Warcraft Classic?is a 2019 MMORPG video game developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment. Running alongside the main version of the game,?Classic’s initial goal was to recreate?a vanilla World of Warcraft experience.?WoW Classic was as close to the original WoW experience as possible, with a few tweaks to make life easier for WoW romantics.
Since then, WoW Classic has expanded, with the release of The Burning Crusade Classic on June 1, 2020. Players can now select a special set of servers to keep experiencing the closest-to-vanilla WoW experience or continue to TBC Classic, which raises the max level to 70 and takes you to Outland to take down Kael Thas, Lady Vashj, and eventually Illidan in the Black Temple.
Burning Crusade Classic and WoW Classic (which recreates WoW as it existed in 2006) will actually be two separate games. It’s your choice which one you want to play on.
However, things are a bit complicated as there are very few WoW Classic servers left, with some of them being almost dead, so it’s important to keep track of server populations before you make a decision.
This way you will avoid having to perform server migration to get to an active server, which would require spending extra money.
Blizzard also offers the option to clone a character so that you can play it both on WoW Classic and Burning Crusade Classic servers.
So, to start experiencing WoW Classic you will have to select a WoW Classic realm (or server) to create your character on and this is where our guide with realm populations across all regions comes in.
IronForge.pro maintains unofficial server population numbers for both WoW Classic and WoW The Burning Crusade Classic.
In this guide, we have all the populations for WoW Classic servers and WoW Classic TBC server, to help you choose a good fit.
