I'm not sure what the number in attendance is per day at Blizzcon - but consider this: The Great American Beer Festival is held in Denver every year, with an attendance of about 10,000 per day. Doors open at 5:30 PM and there is no one left in line by 6:30 PM. You can be first in line and wait all day, or last and wait 90 minutes - but even the last person in line only misses out on 90 minutes of all the beer they can drink.I detest waiting in line.

You're missing the point of the line. It's not a line to get in to the event. For things like this, the line is the START of the event. We tag-teamed the queue for the Episode 1 Star Wars release and had SO MUCH fun! You're there with other fans, talking shop, and just having fun. It's not like standing in the line at the bank or in the grocery store. It's more like a big block party and it's a lot of fun if you have the time to do it.

Agreed! They could be in their homes, or hotels, perhaps enjoying the game instead of sitting there :)
