Following the scheduled realm connection maintenance period today, Blizzard announced that four out of the six planned connections have been successfully completed. There are still more unannounced connections planned that will be taking place over the next couple of weeks.

Successfully Completed Realm Connections (August 20th)

  • Eldre’Thalas and Korialstrasz to Akama, Dragonmaw, and Mug’thol
  • Korgath to Cenarius, Perenolde, and Cairne
  • Blood Furnace, Mannaroth, and Nazjatar to Azgalor, Azshara, Thunderlord, and Destromath
  • Madoran and Dawnbringer to Azuremyst and Staghelm

These realms were successfully connected and players should be able to log in to a more bustling and lively environment.

Uncompleted Realm Connections (August 20th)

  • Ursin, Andorhal, Scilla, and Zuluhed to Eonar and Velen
  • Garona to Icecrown and Malygos

These realms were scheduled to be connected today, however, due to “technical issues,” the connections could not be completed. It is likely they will try to complete these realm connections during the next round of server connections. The date has not been announced as of publishing.

Canceled Realm Connections (August 20th)

  • Hyjal to Proudmoore

This connection was announced but then canceled after feedback from players on both Hyjal and Proudmoore. The initial announcement confused many players on both of the proposed connected realms and on smaller realms.

Players from Hyjal and Proudmoore felt the servers would be overcrowded if combined, as Proudmoore is considered a high to full population server, and Hyjal wouldn’t necessarily be considered an underpopulated realm. Proudmoore players are also particularly opposed to any realm connection, as they feel it would change the social dynamic of the server. Many players are proud of the realm’s LGBTQ+ inclusivity, and it’s not uncommon to hear the server called “Pridemoore.”

Meanwhile, players from smaller servers felt it shouldn’t be a priority to connect realms that for all intent and purposes appear to have a relatively healthy population. Many servers would benefit more from receiving a connection.

Today’s realm maintenance for connections has concluded. The following realm connections are completed and live:

  • Eldre’Thalas and Korialstrasz to Akama, Dragonmaw, and Mug’thol
  • Korgath to Cenarius, Perenolde, and Cairne
  • Blood Furnace, Mannoroth, and Nazjatar to Azgalor, Azshara, Thunderlord, and Destromath
  • Madoran and Dawnbringer to Azuremyst and Staghelm

Unfortunately, two connections could not be completed, due to technical issues:

  • Ursin, Andorhal, Scilla, and Zuluhed to Eonar and Velen
  • Garona to Icecrown and Malygos

We’ll let you know about the next round of connections as soon as possible.
