  • Character Creation disabled on Thunderhorn

    I just tried to create a charcter on Thunderhorn and it keeps telling me that creation of my race/class has been disabled. This happens no matter what race or class I try. Is this happening to anyone else?
    Chris: Dad, I tried to go to school but this guy won't let me.
    Peter: Oh yeah? Him and what army?
    Chris: The U.S. Army.
    Peter: Oh, that's a good army.

    because of an insane surge of traffic right around x-mas time some servers are getting overloaded and to keep them up they have to keep some people out. Its so that the people already in those servers dont start getting performance issues on par with what just happened in the recent patch. Its kinda like when WoW first came out and so many people bought it it overloaded servers and they had to ask retail stores NOT to sell the game for a while. Apparently this is a temporary thing, but i just read that as another way of saying "until we allow server changes" or "until the renewed accounts die again". Either way its too bad you cant make a toon on thunderhorn...we could use a few more!

      I too am an avid BF2 player (ONLY with TG) and was considering giving WoW a try (why not right, I mean my mom, sister, brother, father, grandparents, uncle, aunt, tax guy, lawyer, and cop that just pulled me over all play... im like the only person left who DOESNT).

      But, if there are weird things like this going on and us noobs cant play with the regular TGers.. then I wont bother.
      This situation may be temporary. Note the following forum post from Blizzard

      For the next several days we will be limiting character creation on the following realms to alleviate recent performance issues and hopefully decrease queue times.

      Previously, I had mentioned that this was due to Ahn'Qiraj events and 'Pilgrimage'. This was not entirely accurate. The realms being addressed with this measure have been seeing a great deal of traffic recently and we wish to relieve some strain during prime time by restricting character creation on these realms.

      I apologize for any confusion this may have caused. The list remains the same, which may make things more understandable in this new context.
      Thunderhorn was one of 30 or so listed servers affected. With any luck, this will pass and you'll be able to join us there.
      Although borrowed from another thread, this addresses the situation about inability to do character creation on Thunderhorn. It would be nice if Blizzard could put a time on these "temporary" issues, but that's not their pattern.

        our server is way overpoplated, and when u try to log on during prime play time, u are queue'ed and it says you are XXX out of XXXX people in line to log onto server, estimated time is XXXX minutes, so u have to wait untill XXX amount of people to log out before u log in. i do not get how new people were able to make new characters for the past 2 months as it is, because around thanksgiving, the realm(server) status beside the thunderhorn said FULL, which i would think would mean that u CANT FIT any more characters on the server. i do hope that Bliz fixes this pretty soon, because what fun would it be if there could be no new players joining on a server that has over half of the characters as lvl 60's. =/

          this friday, they are going to 'evaluate the decision to enable character creation' on the currently 'full' servers, according to a new ingame message.

          let's all hope that they do...for a little while, at least.

            My other team's realm (<MA> on Bleeding Hollow) is allowing transfers this week to a new realm. So far our old timers don't want to switch, taking a wait-and-see position to see if the xmas accounts die off and adequately reduce the population. Moving to a new server also means resetting the AQ acquisition counts for the "war effort".

              and blizzard just extended the ban indefinately, yet again, with a 'status update' to follow on monday.

              a lot of people, including me, are getting very, very angry.

                No queue this morning on Bleeding Hollow so the transfers seem to be working. That and the fact that xmas subscriptions are going to fade out this week.

                  Personally I think it would not hurt to petition blizzard to move our entire guild to new server. however I know this would not go over well with many players who have many activities outside of our guild even though they may call our guild home and Iwould notwant to lose anyone over it. However if you think about it from Blizzards point of view if you could move andentire guild and take that much load off the server you should. I am pretty bummed about the whole loggon que thing and don't think it fair or worth paying to play when you are forced to wait. I think If I have to wait then they shloud be sending me a refund for not being able to play when I want. That and the fact life has been busy lately is a big reason I have not been on as much the last couple weeks. If I log on and get that message I am likely to just go play Guild Wars for Free.

                  By the way anybody here play Guild Wars maybe TG should just move in there ;)

                    I still like this server.... problems and all.... i like running into people ive played with before, and getting to know them a little better each time you see them. It's a nice sense of community. I like knowing other guilds and such.... just kinda nice :)
