I just wish that Blizzard would do something that's more accessible for the European player base. It's been what, 3 years since the Paris invitational?The additional expense of cross-Atlantic flights means that Blizzcon's out of most of our budgets. The fortunate few always have a blast, but lose out on the opportunity to do things like meet up with guild mates or bump into random people from their realms (though I'm sure some people do still manage it).All in all it means that Blizzcon just feels like a big press conference to me- nothing near the interest and hype that seems to infect the American players.

Think across the Atlantic is bad? Try across the Pacific... *Grumble*(Yes, yes, I know, there's not enough Australian players to warrant a Blizzcon down here, I KNOW.)

Agreed on this.One of the cons I've found with all these "special events" is that not only they are super expensive but thats what the companies use to reveal everything. Sure, its good in terms of Q&A panels etc but I wish, oh so much wish, that Blizzard would have much more stuff going at like Gamescom thats held in Germany for example.I mean they hardly have anything revealing at huge events like e3 which like 90% of huge companies use to reveal everything!They should spread stuff around more. Maybe reveal some stuff at e3, some at blizzcon, some at gamescom, some at Toky gamesshow.As it currently FEELS like its more of "Ok this year we are focusing on diablo 3 and next year on SC2 and WoWs expansion" while I'm pretty sure they could show Diablo at Blizzcon and some SC2 expansion stuff at e3 for example.

Man, I thought it was bad for me in Canada >.>They should have more, smaller, localized events instead of one huge ass one most of the player base can't attend.

Nah it's got to be one big-ass one, because of all the announcements etc. Would be nice if they alternated between EU and US though.. We're just as big a portion of the playerbase. I guess they'd have a harder time finding a venue though, since America can definately cater towards the more extravagent at a cheaper price.
