I have no idea but I would be happy if we reach a total of constant 6k players actively playing the game

10k launch at least I’d imagine. Darrowshire hit 4k on launch with 8k in discord beforehand. Not to mention it was painfully obvious that Radiixx was the only staff member during the launch :grin:

This server has 24k in discord, actual devs, some pretty big names rooting for it, and a proven leadership team with experience from the most successful private servers.

Not to mention I’ve heard China is rolling on this server in a big way at least 2k of them are gonna be joining in.

I’ve got a good feeling is all.

From experience on past private servers the “hype” for Vanilla WoW just isn’t the the same. There is not any content creators anymore, streamers or content that surrounds the Vanilla WoW scene anymore and definitely not what it used to be. I’m not saying this is the major part regarding numbers I’m just saying that I feel in general the long term interest in a private server is lost. 1st launch day I am sure we will have numbers however after a month in I can’t really see more than 1k online at peak hours and I will be very surprised if after 4 weeks there are more than that online. You can only re-hash the same game over and over for so long until people lose interest and move on and from what I am seeing compared to Nos - Elysium - Lights Hope - Darrowshire which I was very involved with all of those projects it seems like the light is slowly getting more dim. And this is coming from someone who loves Vanilla WoW. That’s my prediction, I hope I’m wrong.

Regardless of the initial population, it’s worth remembering (as Pottu says aswell) that Nostalrius launched with 4000 players and this gradually increased over time. The worst thing people can do is doom the server based off of launch pop as it should only increase when more people find out about the server or get a “vanilla itch”

Due to the long period of silence and lack of substantial information from the staff regarding release the project lost some traction, but I think it’s more than salvageable. Especially since a lot of content creator videos about Everlook have been posted on Chinese social media (and WoW is massive in China) - so just wait and see imo.

It will be alright. I think so too, that it will gain more popularity as it goes.
We can also now vote for Everlook (Zilhahs post): Vote for us on our advertising sites!
Everything helps! There are content creators which are talking about Everlook and so on.
It’s up to the community to watch these and give em a boost, also word-of-mouth and so on!
We will see how it goes! :smiley:

Is there any way to check the Chinese videos? Are those posted in the Chinese Youtube?

Not sure - a fan e-mailed me saying a lot of my videos are posted on chinese social media, but I don’t know how to access them. If you find out feel free to let me know.

I know everyone in the discord probably won’t join but I still expect over 10k maybe even 20k word of mouth alone is strong I got 3 friends who don’t play private servers or retail, 2 that didn’t play Nost or any of the past projects who will be joining me for Everlook. I think that is a really good sign, imo the problems with some of the other servers is they only attracted the small niche community already really into the private server scene, the wowservers types. This project has the potential to not only attract those types but do like Light’s hope and Nost did and attract none private server players too actually growing the community.

I’m gonna be very conservative in my predictions and say we will have a population of about 4K at launch. This will dwindle in a few weeks time to about 3K steady playing on peak times. Which will still feel like a living (even busy) world where we will all be able to enjoy Vanilla the way it’s supposed to be.

I am in China. Chinese players are very disappointed with the operation of official uniforms. As a result, many players of official uniforms will come to E in the future. At present, E is very popular among Chinese players。

At present, the Chinese video website bilibili is a favorite place for players to share games, and many non Chinese players share their videos on it. Link: www.bilibili.com.
