Stop wow from updating
As a result, you may not be able to get into the queue when you want to play and even if you do, it will likely be a very long wait.For a better play experience, we highly recommend that players avoid creating characters on any realm marked as Full.
Since our last update, we have continued to see the community create new characters in preparation for the launch of Wo W® Classic next week.
All of the existing realms have a healthy population.
Even a Full realm in 2006 would be Low by our current metrics.
Nevertheless, even though the game is a gem, there are some issues that can prove as quite a challenge for a considerable player population.
One of the repeating issues is when the download is stuck while updating to the latest version.
if i do try and log in with my email, even a wrong password sends me to the "downloading update" screen. Using email address will airways lead to the client updating itself. Try it again with username and make sure you don't try the email at all. Take a screenshot of it and post it so we can check it's correct. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
