World of Warcraft Classic, a recreation of the original MMORPG in 2004, has finally arrived. Top streamers from all over Twitch have been streaming it, garnering over one million concurrent viewers that top out Fortnite‘s usual 100,000 and 200,000 concurrent spectator viewership. That’s a large number for a non-e-Sports title on the platform, however, most viewers were watching while waiting to be able to log in.
Popular WoW streamer Asmongold gained over 200,000 viewers in his stream by the time he was able to finally log in after a long server queue time. Added to the influx of log-in attempts is a competition created by WoW guild Method, challenging various personalities and top players to be the first in the world to complete everything in the game.
As a result, many people are attempting to level up so that they can separate themselves from the horde at the game’s central log-in area since severs are so packed. Character bodies get mangled in spawn points, slowing up enemy spawns and increasing lag.
Check out Asmongold’s stream below and Blizzard‘s 15-year anniversary footage above.
