People keep saying that the initial split of players will be better than in TBC because there are two starting zones in Northrend and the death knight factor.I disagree.In TBC, we had one starting zone in Outland but two new starting zones in Azeroth...with the Blood Elves and Draenei starting areas.I see the split as about equal, but add in the millions of more players this time around and it may be worse.Not that I am being pessimistic though. I anticipate delays and disconnects, so it wont really bother me too much. I still have 2 toons in Outland, so if Northrend or the Death Knight area is overrun, I can finish off the 70 grind on those two.

Consider first: Northrend is for level 58+ players.Consider second: Death Knights are for level 55+ players.Consider third: There are twice as many introductory zones in Northrend than there were in Outland, and they're both close to being twice as large, with twice the quest hubs per faction.Even on the over-crowded beta servers, the player spread was pretty good.

The majority will go for the 2 new 68+ zones, compared to the one 55+ "re-roll" zone. In TBC, I think most went for the single 58+ zone, over the 2 "re-roll" zones. That's the difference, and my perception anyway.
