If you play World of Warcraft, you've probably heard that players on the Medivh server were the first to open the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj, which features new high-level raid content for the game. The task requires players to accumulate a large amount of resources for the "war effort," and there was considerable interest in which server would be the first to unlock this new area. Unfortunately for players on Medivh, scores of people from other servers started creating characters on Medivh to witness the event, which resulted in lag, server crashes, and login queues. Screenshots of the occasion have been posted on the official site
