Anyone have any idea what Blizzcon tickets will go for on Ebay should I not be able to buy them tonight?

Allow me to look into my crystal ball...Seriously though... I'd expect to pay at least double if buying them on ebay. Possibly more.

Your soul. And your pet.In all seriousness.. I would expect a markup of at least 300-500%.

I'm going to ballpark it and guess maybe $300 and up if you can find it for that price. Plus the flight and hotel, pending you can find 1, you'll be looking at a lot of money being spent.More power to you if you still want to go.I'm going to go the safe route and just watch it on streaming tv.
I thought they wouldn't honor scalped tickets to begin with. Did I miss something there?

My next question would be, is it worth it? I talked to a friend who went to Blizzcon last year and he said that it was cool but the event itself was poorly organized. He stated that the best part was hanging out with guildies IRL, which could have been done somewhere else.

@Amaxe: Eww...Is that actually true? I guess it might make sense because people would make more money from the tickets than Blizzard would. Perhaps the June 10 (I think that is the date) for name submission for the tickets is a way around this? Plus I think I read somewhere that you could change the registered names at the event as well.

@llcjayHonestly, if you had a group coming along, then yes but if you are going there solo, not worth it.Your money could be better spent watching the stream online and or saving up for next year, but that's my tin hat opinion.

Ah, I didn't know the deadline to submit names was June 10th. I had thought it was at time of purchase.I guess I have been misinformed on this. Feel free to ignore my previous comment if this is so.

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but isn't it illegal to sell tickets or something similar with a listed price for more than that listed price?

@AmaxeYour comment can stand! While there may be a grace period for getting the names on the tickets confirmed, changing the names at the event requires you to have access to the credit card used to purchase the tickets. This would allow to, for instance, give up your ticket to someone you trust but will leave scalpers (or, realistically, those who buy scalped tickets) out of luck.

@biggjudicemScalping laws depend on the state the scalper is in.For instance, in Texas, scalping, or ticket reselling, by it's more pc name, is totally legal, and unregulated beyond normal fraud laws.
