Population Control Measures

Population Control Measures - World of Warcraft - MMORPG.com

Blizzard's World of WarCraft has a problem that might just be envyable for other developers. It seems as though they have having difficulty in controlling Realm populations. Well, they're come up with a solution:

 

We've implemented a new system that will disable character creation when a realm has a queue to better control realm populations. This system will disable character creation for accounts without characters on an individual realm when it has a queue. This will limit population growth on congested realms during peak hours and assist us in our efforts to provide a better overall gameplay experience for our players, especially those on high population realms.

Please note that players with existing characters on a queued realm will still be able to create characters, and during off hours when there is not a queue all players may create characters as normal.
