WoW: Classic demo will limit players to one-hour sessions

Postby Gamerzone » 08 Mar 2019 08:46 am

The World of Warcraft: its doors will open to the world on November 2, which WoW Classic Gold will be tomorrow. And with tomorrow just a day away, Blizzard has announced that it's likely to implement a cooldown timer to ensure everyone has a fair opportunity. "When the demo goes live, we will use a playtime time limit plus a cooldown (that begins when you log into ) to assist as many people as you can play with the timeless demo as much as possible," community supervisor Ythisens wrote. "We will start with a playtime limit of a cumulative 60 minutes plus a cooldown of 90 minutes"

He cited three examples of how the system will work: If you play for 30 minutes and then log off for 60 minutes, you are going to start over with a fresh 60 when you return; if you play for 60 minutes, you are going to find the boot and won't be let back for 30 minutes; and (this is where it gets complex ) if you play for 20 minutes, leave for 20 minutes, then come back and play for 40 more minutes, then you'll get kicked out but will be able to reconnect in only ten minutes.

A playtime cap clearly is not going to make everyone happy, but given what generally occurs when hordes of enthusiastic gamers stampede through a newly-opened doorway, it's probably a good idea. And it will only be set up until Blizzard is certain it can handle the requirement: Ythisens said the objective is to raise the constraints"as fast as we feasibly can," and just reinstate them whether it experiences unexpectedly high demand afterward.

Demo content is going to be limited as well: Blizzard stated in a statement that Horde gamers will have access to the Barrens while Alliance gamers will have the ability to roam Westfall, however the Deadmines and Wailing Caverns dungeons won't be accessible, and PvP will be restricted to duels. At level 15, demo players will begin on the upside, so they'll have some abilities and quests to tackle straight away. The World of Warcraft: Classic demo will be available to BlizzCon Virtual Ticket holders starting on November 2, when the big show starts. A launch date for the full World of Warcraft: Classic hasn't been declared.
