As much as I'd like to do this I can't financially say that it's worth it. I'll hear the news whether I watch the panels or not. The panels will also be on Youtube eventually if I want actually watch them a few months afterwords. The $40 is basically to hear the news live, the pet, and the ability to spend more money on Blizzcon only stuff. I'm not against it at all but I'm kinda sad that I can't find a way to make it worth the money. I guess that's why I need to get a job ;)

And the fact that there are....other means to watch the streams for free.

@Leviathon Yeah, there are, but only no-good disfigured gold farmers who consume murloc feces ever try to watch Blizzcon like that.

Or people who don't feel they should pay 40 dollars for something that should be free like it originally was.

Or maybe people who don't feel they should have to pay for something that should and originally was free. Then again Blizzard has shown that their community is fine being milked.

Attending a football game used to be free as well. Go waste your breath yelling at them. Times change, and if there is a buck to be turned, good for them. Hopefully it goes to paying some poor schmoe to haul around the all the equiptment, cuz ya know that right now it's only one guy, and he works free on weekdays (he does free heart surgery on the weekend so if we need him, it costs a little bit, like Canada). Anyone who's complaint is that something once was free fails to understand how the world works in general.

^this And to add on to it, people are constantly complaining that Blizzard is milking them and they're a multi-billion dollar industry which can obviously support themself by making games like WoW cheaper, additional services free, etc. When in reality, Blizzard pays its employees slightly less than the average software developer should make in each of their positions. The CEOs aren't pocketing huge chunks of income either, the reality is that to pay thousands of employees, to fund Blizzcon, shit isn't cheap. Leviathon, I guarentee you that if your mommy or daddy both worked for Blizzard, you would be saying otherwise, because they need to eat too.
