Many World of Warcraft Classic players have faced hours-long queues to access the game since its release on Monday, followed by in-game congestion and further queues to complete quests.
According to a post on the Blizzard forums on Wednesday, the latest hotfixes should alleviate login wait times.
“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,” a community manager said.
“We expect this to result in smaller queues for realms that have large queues, and some realms should no longer have queues at all. We will closely monitor performance and stability throughout this process.”
Released to coincide with the franchise’s 15th anniversary this year, Classic lets World of Warcraft subscribers experience the early days of Blizzard’s MMO with an authentic recreation of the pre-expansion game.
Shares of Activision Blizzard hit a nine-month high on Tuesday following World of Warcraft Classic’s release.
Blizzard will launch a World of Warcraft 15th Anniversary Collector’s Edition on October 8. Priced at $100 (£89.99), it will include 30 days of game time, a ten-inch Ragnaros the Firelord statue, a pin, mousepad, set of art prints and a pair of in-game mounts.
