Fans have been patiently awaiting the release of World of Warcraft Classic, but it looks like some players are going to have wait even longer.

These long queue times are in spite of four new servers that Blizzard added for the explicit purpose of reducing waits for players. But if those servers had not been there, it’s really crazy to think about how long players could have been waiting.

Players are expecting the hype to pay off, though. Nearly a million people were watching WoW Classic
