Blizzard Reveals Playtime Limits for World of Warcraft: Classic Demo

When the World of Warcraft: Classic demo debuts once BlizzCon gets underway tomorrow, players will have a limit to how long they can play before being "booted" and unable to play for a short period of time. After an hour's cumulative playtime, you'll have to wait for the 30 minute Global Cool Down in order to play again.

  • If you play for 30 minutes and then log off for 60 minutes, when you come back you’ll have a fresh 60 minutes.
  • If you play for 60 minutes, you’ll be disconnected and then have to wait 30 minutes before you can play again.
  • If you play for 20 minutes, log off for 20 minutes, then play 40 more minutes, you’ll be logged off and wait 10 more minutes.

Our goal is to lift session limits as quickly as we feasibly can after the demo goes live. We will then only reinstate session limits if unexpectedly high demand returns.
