Sharding and Worldbosses

Classic Discussion
lads I can't wait to be sitting at kazzak during the spawn window with several 40 man raids awaiting the spawn, fighting the opposite faction with my world boss alliance in all good fun with several hundred players, only for half of the raids to get sharded onto servers with empty zones and then miss the spawn entirely
Considering they're not planning to use sharding for that, you're going to be disappointed.
They won't be put on different servers but no one would be able to see anyone else until they got within 10 feet of Kazzak and the lag would be concentrated onto the raiders and not across the entire server evenly where it would be handled well.
This is the stuff i worry about sharding ruining.

Blizzard just said this isn’t how it’s going to be, so nice troll.

guild of spreadsheet mongoloids xd


This character has a KT weapon equipped, proving I killed KT at least one more time then ToW ever did despite months of PTR ROFL
Bliz said they won't use the tech on things like this.

Worry about it if it happens.

Damn, you guys worry about pointless things. How do you get through life?

They've made it clear when ever there is congestion or high pop that they must police the fun away and community interaction with sharding.

tl;dr "You think you want a cohevisive community, but you don't."

Its sharding, they've proven they can't control it at all.

Getting screwed out of a kazzak, or more importantly, green dragon kills, not because your raid couldn't secure the kill, but because the server just doesn't spawn it on your shard will be awful.

And no, I don't believe blizzard is competent enough to create exceptions to the sharding tech, RP servers are supposed to be exempt from sharding tech, but I garentee you that the sharding tech somehow resets itself and requires hotfixes constantly, even on one of the most popular live realms, so why would classic, which is going to have a smaller dev team if the demo is any indication, be any different.
