@Drakkenfyre oh please...blizz said they 'used to' lose money (back before 2008)...they havent for quite a while.While Direct TV probably takes a large cut....most of the audience is directly streaming via Blizz,s stream (and their partner RAYV)RayV said on their blog that for 2011 Blizzcon they stream 2.26 million hours for 740,000 unique pai subscriber.AS pre financial records, renting is 100k $ per day (3 days with free setup day), 400k for musical guest, around 1million in wages, another 1M for hardware.So Blizzcon made over 30m$ and cost under 4m$...so can we PLEASE stop with Blizz losing money on Blizzcon.So in 2011 Blizzcon had 740k@40$ from RayV,h 26k attendees@175$ and 60k viewers on DirectTV. Add that all up and your over 30million $.
