What is up guys, it’s soul I’m here back with another TVC classic video. So today we will be taking a look at the server population in TBC classic and basically looking at the health of various servers in TBC classic.
The main goal of this video is to show you the population and activity of various servers have different server types, and different service popularities. to ultimately help you guys choose which server to play on. This video might be more suitable for those of you returning to TBC classic and are actively trying to figure out which server you should play on.
Which Servers Close With TBC Ending and WOTLK Starting, The New Servers
But I also think it’s interesting to just to see how various surveys are different from each other. So that is what we are doing today. But before we get into the video, I want to give a massive shout out to my supporters over on Patreon, you guys are absolute legends and the financial stability from Patreon allows me to keep creating the videos that I want to make without having to chase clickbait titles just to pay the bills.
So once again, thank you so much. And if you aren’t enjoying the videos and want to take the extra step and support me on patreon as well, you can find the link to my Patreon page in the video description.
All right, so in order to discuss the server population and this survey activity, we will actually have to look at a couple of different statistics and different types of proof.
And the first thing I want to pull up is my trusty census scans. Census plus basically allows you to scan the amount of players that are currently online on the server that you are currently planning on allowing you to see the current online activity of the server.
It is a great add on to see how many players are actively playing the game rather than just seeing how many people are waiting logging. And you can even run the add on yourself to see how many people are playing while you are playing.
Ask there are huge varieties between how many people are currently online at different times of the day. Now I’ve also been lucky enough to be Sunday desk math by Epic desk, and they’ve even offered to give a wonderful way to you guys all epic estimates are limited edition and nothing is actually mass produced.
There are a limited number of documents available. The rarity is put into three categories you have limited which will only have 500 in existence, you have very limited which will only have 250 in existence, and you have extremely limited which will only have 100 in existence.
As you receive your desk mat there will be a signature number on the back showing you which number your desk mat is in the production as well as a certificate of authenticity, verifying the number and ownership.
These desk mats are absolutely huge 913 by 400 millimeters in dimensions to be exact, and they work perfectly as decorations for your PC desk much better than other boring desk mats in my opinion anyway, not only do they look amazing, but they also feel amazing.
The surface touch is just the way it should be. It feels smooth, but not too smooth. Just the perfect amount of smooth if you know what I mean. Basically, it functions as a desk mat. I’ve been using this desk mat for a couple of days now.
And thanks to Epic desk, I have finally found it desk mat that I think is perfect. The packaging itself is a real it’s also really solid, looks professional, and even has its own little plastic bag inside the packaging itself. So it’s easier to carry the desk mat with you.
And there you go while keeping it clean and safe. If you are looking to buy a new desk mat, I highly recommend checking out epic desk and you can find a link to their website in the video description and the pinned comment. And by using code Solheim, you can get 15% off your purchase.
Now just in case any of you think this is a sellout, I am not being paid to say this, and I’m not profiting off you with my by using my link. That link is just there to save you guys money. And even though I’m being paid, I did get a free document, which is awesome.
I also mentioned that they are actually giving away a desk master one of you guys. So if you’re looking for a new document, let me know in the comment section down below. And I’ll pick a winner in 48 hours. So you have 48 hours to enter that giveaway and the way you interest by commenting anything with a Word document in it.
So just be creative. Okay, so I did a couple of scans recently on some European surveys. And I did these close to midnight on a Wednesday. So it’s roughly around the time that people finish reading and doing it on midnight on Wednesday might not be the best time.
But I did the scans on the same day at roughly the same time for every survey. So while this is not probably showing you the most activity on the surveys, it will show you roughly the same kind of percentages for all of the surveys that I’ve scanned.
So even though it’s not the best time to do it, I did it on the same time for every single survey. So let’s just go and check it out. The first scam that I did was on fire mode. So this is going to be the scam that shows the most amount of players that I’m doing in this video.
And furthermore, it’s actually the end Most Popular server in the world right now, not just for Europe, but in the actual world, which is incredible for me playing on Europe and not having to be on na to be on the most popular survey. And another fun thing is that it’s one of the only service athletes the only server of the size that has a healthy fashion balance out of the four service that are like to talk for.
This is the only one that has a somewhat healthy faction balance sitting at 55%, Alliance and 45% Horde, while for example, benediction is sitting on 99%, the lions fairly nice setting on 99.7% Horde, and Johannes is also sitting on 99% HoId. So this is a PvP survey.
And it’s pretty much the only one have decent popularity that is sitting at a healthy server population or a healthy faction balance, which is incredible. It is one of the most fun servers to play on. There’s lots of worldview P going on.
And basically all of the activities you can think about that has to do with the both the server population and the faction balance. It feels incredible. But that being said, it’s also probably the only server that has served with us right now. Personally, I’m playing on both farmer and Parkwood village, and that’s against here right here partly religious, also classified as a high pop survey, close to full as well.
But when you go to for example, or enforce your Pro, you can see farmer has 34.8 1000 registered active Raiders, while pirate village has 9.2k. So far and more has about 3.5 times as many active Raiders. And it also has a lot more just in general active people playing on that survey. So it’s probably the only server that will ever experience a higher load in queues. And especially if you’re considering if you’re trying to find this photograph, this is probably going to be the biggest one with the biggest Syracuse. So if you’re trying to avoid Syracuse for rather than maybe Pharma is not the best decision for you. But if you are one of those who really wants to have a very active survey, then it is definitely a good choice. But you have to be okay with the Syracuse. Now before we head on to some other surveys, we do other scans as one. In the interest of telling you guys which survey you should play on or helping you with the decision, I will tell you that I actually transferred from foreign multiply with religion myself for the launch of TBC classic with the main purpose of avoiding those login queues for farmer. So if you are worried about those login queues, then definitely farmer might not be the choice for you, you will end up sitting in like four to six hour queues at the launch of a new expansion. And wrath is probably going to be the most popular classic edition. Exceptional actual classic while but like wrath was the most popular bow expansion and it will definitely be popular for classic as well. So if you are one if you are dreading those Syracuse and pharma might not be the decision decision for you. And personally, while I loved playing there in classic one, I did transfer away for TBC. Okay, that’s pretty much it for firemen. Let’s head on to scan number two. So scan number two was for for pirate village, which is my main server right now. And I’ll tell you this, even though it has way less active readers, and far more, the amount of people logged on just doing anything except raiding feels absolutely fantastic. So for example, for far more, you have this scan right here you can see the active amount of layers. Let’s go on to pi word which is a way lower population survey, you can see there’s not really that many less people that are actively playing the game. So I did a scan on Pinewood village, and this one finished as 1206. So six minutes past midnight. Now you can see there’s 7911 active players, which also means that this scan itself took quite a while to actually finish. So I want to say that I spent I started this character at level one, and I leveled up to I think I’m close to level 10. Right now, if I remember correctly, so I close to level 10 Maybe I’m level 10. Close to level 11. I’m basically been playing for about an hour on this character a bit more. So an hour and a half of the actual scan itself, meaning that I started the scan at half past 10 or 1030. And it has been scanning from 1030 until midnight. So that is like a round reading time. So it also past waiting times. And you can see the scale itself shows a 7911 players that is not really all that far off from pharma itself, even though pie would have emergency PvE survey, and it also has way less people than fire and more. This could probably tell me that there’s more active people that are doing anything except raid logging on this survey, and also looking at the amount of people in different level of brackets. You can see like this 170 8% Or level 70 But there’s lots of people actually leveling up. You can see the bars even the They’re very small, you can see that there’s like one person that almost every level bracket from like level 50. And after it’s about point five to 1% in every single level bracket. So if you’re planning to level up and you want to find a server where there’s activity in the leveling bracket, then pile village might just be the one for you, especially if you’re looking for a PVE survey. Speaking of PvE servers, I did a similar scan on miraggio base way where it is classified as the second most popular PvE server for urine. And this one, I might just have hit the bad timing for it, because I went here after I finished the scam and pirate village. So I went here at like 10 minutes past 12 them and the scan itself only showed 985 people but that was also like past midnight on a Wednesday. So I will admit the timing might have been bad for this one, but also simply like half an hour before this, like in the span of two hours to half an hour before this scan itself on my ranch. I did a scan on pirate village which showed like eight times as many people so there’s the it seems like there’s way more activity going on on pirate village that miraj Raceway, I could be totally wrong for that one. But it also shows like more Vader’s for pirate village as well. If we just go back to our own photo Pro you can see pirate wood has the 9.2k while me ranch has 7.1 So that is like way it’s not that huge of a gap compared to the skins but that could also tell me that pi which has some more people actively playing the game outside of just reading and me Roger raceway might have more people that are inside their Fe Guild and just raid logging. That could be industrious, pure sport your speculation no on my part. But yeah, the scan itself show the huge amount of people for pirate village and not as many for me large Raceway, I did one more thing for this one just to compare those two surveys. So right here I pulled off the actual looking for group Adam, for him Iran so we can see how many groups are currently looking for people from Iran. And you can see this six groups that are currently for me for me ranch, and I logged back over to premiere pirate wood village right after this as well. So you can see right here I pulled up the sensor scan just to show you that I’m currently playing on pirate would be in Detroit now. And then we click on to the looking for group or looking for group bulletin board add on. You can also see the time right here. So I love the right on over the pie with to see the activity going on over there. As you can see, there’s way more groups on this survey that are currently forming than on Mirage. And this was like three minutes after I did a scam on Mirage as well, just to show you another comparison between those two surveys. Also for you lone wolves watching this video if you want to play on the server all by yourself and hydroxy underwater though it is a good one. This one there’s only 31 people in total that was logged on. When I did this scam. Basically, there’s nothing going on right now on this survey. There are some guilds that are actively reading but it’s not really showing up anywhere. But there could be some people playing on the survey. But this is what a low popularity server looks like. Almost nothing happening and the scan well. 31 Total people. I did one West gumbo. This one is for another guard key but I think that’s the name yet another guard key. This is a medium survey. So 513 people actively on my right now 63% Or max level, and the other 40% or 36 point something percent are currently leveling up. So once again, if you are leveling up then I think PvE servers are a good choice. It seems to be more people that are actively leveling up on PvE service. And one more thing that I’ve noticed myself from playing on both a farmer and pirate village, there’s way less people selling boosts on PvE servers. I think that is because of the world pvp element because whenever you’re playing on fire more like let’s say level 60 to 70 There’s way more people at least on fire more because it has a healthy faction balance. So whenever you’re leveling up and alliances, there’s always some level 70 hordes trying to gank you so the appeal of those leveling boosts is way higher on PvP service because there’s so many more distractions whenever you’re leveling up in the open world. So that’s one of them huge, huge thinks that um, the differences that are noticing between PvP and PvE servers, so if you’re not really enjoying them each boost and Paladin boosting classic well and TBC classic, then PvE servers are definitely the way to go. I’m probably just rambling at this point, but I’m really having a lot of fun doing these types of scans on TBC classic and checking out the surf popularity on both classic route and TBC classic. So hopefully you’re enjoying it as well. And hopefully this video helped the load Those of you who are returning to TBC right now, or maybe you are just trying out TBC for the first time. Well hopefully this video helped you choose a server to play on. And let’s end this video off by doing something different. Let me know in the comments down below which server you were playing on. So I can see if any of you are playing on my server. If you plan on fire more, or any other server, let me know in the comment section down below. Leave a like on the video if you liked it, and if you didn’t like it, then please still like it and subscribe for more TBC videos. Yeah, that’s pretty much it. Thank you so much for watching, and I’ll see you again very soon.
