World of Warcraft Classic has finally launched globally and new realms have already been enabled due to extremely high demand.

After years of waiting, fans are now able to experience vanilla World of Warcraft once again. Blizzard unlocked name reservations earlier this month,  and over the past few weeks, Classic’s development team already warned fans for severe queues on the game’s most popular realms. New servers were enabled to help spread the population and prevent severe login waiting times.

Oceanic realm(s)

  • Yojamba (PvP, AEST)
