I know I am going to get burned at the stake for saying this......but in the 5 years playing WoW I could never understand all the fusses and lure ever made over Blizzcon. To me it's like going to convention by McDonalds or Walmart; yeah, sure I appreciate their products...but seriously not that much. And it really has no impact on Blizz's games or how we play them. And we players are more effective on the Forums in influencing any change in our games than all the Blizzcon's put together. It seems the only thing they have ever been useful for is announcements...which they can easily make without the hassle of their corporate convention being open to the paying public. Or the buggy 48 hr mechandise cash shop. Just saying......let my burning in effigy begin. :(

well, if you have made any freinds while playing, its a convientent way to meet them, and interact with other players. as some one who has no RL friends that play WoW, going to Blizzcon would be a great way to meet other players. alas, i have no ticket.

Why go to any convention? It's a celebration of all things Blizzard. Some of us have the utmost respect for the men and women who provide such a large chunk of our entertainment and have for a large portion of our lives (From The Lost Vikings/Blackthorne on up to Diablo III and beyond).It's like going to any other performance to see an artist/comedian/actor you enjoy the works of. You go to get autographs, to play pre-releases of games, to see presentations, meet other famous people (Tricia Helfer/Cast of The Guild), catch a live performance (Ozzy!)....and it's a great excuse for a California vacation.

Well...first, thank you both for the heartfelt answers: I appreciate it. As I appreciate you not raking me over the coals because I raised this issue. I guess since none the things you've stated I would be interested in...then perhaps I am not the best person to raise questions about it. However, it's important to you guys...and I guess that's what matters......so have a fantastic time then! :)
