Remember queuing back in the day to play World of Warcraft? Classic fans sure do, because that's the experience everyone is having today.
It's almost too perfect, really. As Blizzard winds back the clock to 2004 — or 2006 really, given the version of World of Warcraft that's been restored in Classic — players have found themselves with an experience that many had scrubbed from their memories. But when the World of Warcraft: Classic servers went live early this morning, so did the wonderful joy of seeing that "Realm is Full" message.

The most common complaints showed queues of up to an hour and a half, although one poor player was hit with a queue time of 456 minutes:

It is doing exactly what I predicted. My queue has went down maybe 1k in the last two hours....now my wait time just bumped up to 90 mins which is bs because it said an hour two hours ago. #WoWClassic

And if you're Australian ... well, I hope you're patient.

To be fair, at least those last two had better luck than me this morning.
