After receiving reports of new US realms, we feel it is our civic duty to inform you of the truth behind these mystery realms. Fairly regularly people see new servers on a realm status report. A name they have not heard, a realm they have not seen. And they announce, breathlessly, that there is a ne...

If you ever visit the WoW forums on a daily basis, you'll notice that a large portion of the posts are people asking, begging, wheedling and whining about their wish for new servers. These posts have gotten so bad that Blizzard has now classified "new server plz" posts as spam and threatened to ban...

Both realms are in the EST timezone and include Undermine, a PvE realm in Battlegroup 10, and Anub'arak, a PvP realm in Battlegroup 11. Both of these realms will be closed to paid character transfer for six months, as oppo...

In an announcement that will probably stop the "new realms plz!" requests for a good sixty seconds, two new US realms have opened this afternoon. Tanaris is available for the PvE-ers and Forgotten Coast for the PvP-ers. (And, before you ask, bot realms are in the EST time zone.) However, the most...

Four more new realms opened today - for PvP players, there's Onyxia and Blackwing Lair,  while PvE players can enjoy Gnomeregan and Anvilmar.  So if you were feeling like a fresh start in Azeroth, here's your chance.  The realms appear to be in the PST time zone, so if that's what you...

New non-transfer realms Aerie Peak (PvE) and Lethon (PvP) opened up this afternoon.  I find it interesting that we have two new realms after, just last week, Blizzard released a list of low population realms as recommended places for new players to start afresh.  Of course, I'll be the fir...

Two new PvP realms have been brought online today - Demon Soul and Jaedenar.  These realms are on the new World of Warcraft site with all new hardware and are open for character creation.  The reaction on the forums to this is surprisingly negative, as numerous players chime in with compla...

Two new US realms were opened today - Alter of Storms (PvP) and Uldaman (PvE).  These are non-transfer realms and are open for character creation by all players, and they're both running at the new site, on all newer, better hardware platforms.  Anyone planning on starting afresh on a shin...

Well, they aren't going to be opened immediately, but there are plans for two new Oceanic realms (one PvE and one PvP) to open mid-May.  With only a few existing Oceanic servers, this will hopefully alleviate overcrowding.  Of course, this does not much help existing Oceanic players who st...

Remember the slew of new US servers that opened about a month ago?  Well, a lot of players from other servers jumped on the opportunity to start anew - myself included.  The chance to start on a fresh server has been a thrill.  No queues, no lag, and no gold farmers.  But the ser...
