How to See the Current Server Status for WoW Classic

If you’re having trouble getting into WoW Classic, you should first check the official Realms pages for each realm. These include all the different regions, and all servers showing their current status and population. Depending on which region you’re in, use the below links to check those regions:

Another good way is to have a friend check and see if they’re running into issues. Unless it’s something specific to a server you’re trying to connect to, there’s a good chance that your friend will have the same problem. In the same vein, checking the WoW Classic Discord server can help you when it comes to discerning whether issues are widespread.

Is There A Way to Know the Game Will Be Down Ahead of Time?

If you want a heads-up so you can plan your gaming sessions accordingly, then the best way to do that is to keep an eye on any social channels. If any issues are going to appear and maintenance will occur, Blizzard’s official support channels somewhere like Twitter will have something to say about it. For example, that issue I mentioned above that was occurring at the time of writing had tweets go out shortly after the issues occurred.

Either way, you can rest easy knowing that if there are issues that aren’t specific to you, the team is likely aware and working on it. These options should at least keep you up to date on what’s going as well.
