As history clearly shows, it is inevitable that servers for live service games will take a hit, especially when WoW Classic releases new content like the Season of Discovery. Here’s a look at how the servers are holding up currently, if at all.
There are a handful of reasons for WoW Classic to go down. As we know, it’s an online-only game, but it’s still unique in that genre. Sometimes servers can go down due to sheer numbers of players, an update might go wrong, or a much-hyped expansion like Season of Discovery could break the game. However, there are ways to check if the game is down for all players and why.
Is WoW Classic Down? What’s Happening to The Servers?
At the time of writing, WoW Classic’s servers experiencing some issues with the Season of Discovery on December 4, 2023. This is being caused be WoW Error Code BLZ51934200. Although they were having some brief problems, it looks like a handful of players in World of Warcraft are not able to log in, but the community team is investigating these potential outages.
This was an outside incident from what the Blizzard team expected. We’re not too sure what the problem is, and it seems like the Blizzard team for World of Warcraft is trying to resolve this issue. They’ll be investigating what could be causing these problems to occur, but the game shouldn’t be down for too long. We expect it to return in the next hour or so, or even sooner than that, depending on how damaging the problem is going to be.
However, it’s worth noting that the lines are pretty full at the moment for the release of WoW Classic: Season of Discovery. This could mean that players won’t get into the game for a while, especially during prime time. In the meantime, players should enjoy the trailer for the latest season.
