The fourth phase of WoW: Burning Crusade Classic started at the end of March and we are taking the opportunity to look at the server populations in April 2022. How have the last few months and the opening of Zul'Aman impacted Outland's endgame stats?
As is well known, on March 24, 2022, Zul'Aman in WoW: Burning Crusade Classic opened its doors and perhaps lured one or the other player back to Outland. Finally, there's now not only a new challenge but also a lot more Insignia of Justice and equipment options to prepare your own characters for the TBC finals on the Isle of Quel'Danas.
How busy is Outland?
So what's the current state of Outland server populations? That's exactly what we want to find out! For our check, we visited Ironforge. pro again. All characters that have appeared in a log for a TBC endgame content in a certain period of time are recorded there.
So we see how many characters participate in the PvE endgame on the different servers (we do not include the characters that were additionally captured in the arena for the sake of comparability). The most recent numbers come from the last April ID from April 6, 2022, to April 13, 2022.
The populations of the TBC Classic servers
The EU server Firemaw had already worked its way back to the top in the last few months and has 33,942 characters (in March 2022: 32,951)
The US server Benediction is number 2 again. 28,433 characters (26,052 characters) were counted there.
By far the largest German TBC Classic server is still Venoxis, with 15,949 characters (15,501 - 63.9 percent Horde).
The formerly largest DE server Everlook has 8,267 characters (8,405 - 73.3 percent alliance).
5,486 (instead of 5,705) active characters (at 49.4 percent Horde) were counted on Razorfen.
Lakeshire has 4,055 (instead of 4,496) active characters (at 63.8 percent alliance)
Patchwerk has 2,477 (instead of 2,672) active characters (at 86.5 percent Horde)
Transcendence has 2,828 (instead of 2,942) active characters (69.6 percent Horde)
Only 129 (instead of 149) characters were counted for Celebras, 30 of them on the Horde side.
For Lucifron, Dragon's Call and Heartstriker, no statistics were collected in the last ID due to too few players.
A total of 313,321 raid-active characters were counted across the US, EU and Russia regions (in March 2022: 311,390).
Again: more characters, more extremes
As in the last month, let's note: The total number of characters is increasing slightly, which is probably also due to various new twinks that are cavorting in the TBC raids. At the same time, there is a migration from poorly and moderately populated servers to heavily populated servers. The result: Servers that are already very busy are getting fuller and fuller, while all other realms are losing players and some are even turning into ghost servers. Are you looking forward to the arrival of Wrath of the Lich King? Judging from the current player count, some servers may be crowded at that time, after all, they used to be so popular. But we'll have to wait until the end of the year for news. Whenever a player needs WoW TBC gold, it can be purchased at MMOSO.com. Safe and reliable.
