I think it was a great move on Blizzard, I knew they were going to do something to try and make it up.Just think about it this way, Blizzard always learns from their mistakes, so next years blizzcon will BE HUGE!!!!!They might even host it in a much bigger venue like how some of the WWI were held. Olympic stadiums anyone? :-DEven though I have tickets this year, I really want to goto their next event because due to the mass of people trying to goto this one they are bound to make it huge for the next one :)This is really an exciting time for gamers world wide, Gaming is finally starting to get accepted in the US like it is in Korea with games like World of Warcraft.If you don't get to go this year, just remember that the next blizzcon is really going to be LEGENDARY!!!

First, let me say /agree with pretty much everyone above.Second, I think that if Blizzard worked with sites such as ebay to catch the scalpers, there could potentially be an additional 1000 tickets made available from confiscation. But, that's on Blizzard's shoulders to address, and I don't expect it to be an easy thing to do.Third, in reference to the idea of a larger venue for next year, I doubt Blizzard will move the con outside of their "home turf", if you will, of southern California. And I don't know of an indoor venue much bigger than Anaheim CC at that kind of price. The LACC is almost certainly more expensive by a large degree. What Blizz might consider is using LA Live or somewhere similar, which mean they could potentially expand to meet demand; rent Nokia Theatre LA Live, Staples Center, and even expand into portions of LACC as they need. This would give them significantly more flexibility in attendance, IMO.
