This morning at midnight thousands of stores across the world will open their doors for the midnight sales party of Wrath of the Lich King. While most of the partying will be done by us gamers, the owners will be more than happy to make that sale. Just as major stores in major cities will be packed at the doors long before the midnight opening so too will the servers once gamers have the game home.

For anyone who’s new to an expansion release of a game I’ll give you a few tips right now. Here is a list of things you’re going to need to anticipate if you’re going to be a midnight WotLK runner:

  1. Server crashes and long load times
  2. Many bugs and glitches
  3. Intense periods of lag
  4. Tons of people rushing to the new areas
  5. The Death Knight starter area being full of hundreds of people

Don’t fret though these things are expected and will work themselves out in the weeks to come. Take your time, explore, and just enjoy the game that’s been long overdue. Also be sure to check out our website for updates on the new Alliance leveling guide we’ll have available as soon as possible. LiTi-4 will be working as hard as possible to get you the update for 1-80 as well as a 70-80 leveling guide.
