The classic version of WoW will be released soon (August 27th I believe it is), and yesterday we could finally pick 3 character names each.
This is what the queue looked like (~7100) to log into the game, not even 15 minutes after they made it available:
Two minutes earlier the queue was over 10k – and approx. 45 minutes estimated time to log in. Since people were only creating characters they weren’t logged on for that long I guess, so the queues went down quickly. 🙂
