BlizzCon Countdown: Tomorrow's the day!

For those of you who have been living under a rock, tomorrow is the first day of BlizzCon 2007. Tomorrow morning at 9:00 AM PDT, we'll be standing in line for StarCraft II demos (we'll try not to get to involved in playing -- and remember to get back to you with all the details!) and starting at 11:00 AM we'll be liveblogging the opening ceremony, where we're expecting to hear the official announcement for the next expansion. For those of you who have missed out on our BlizzCon announcements, I'll use today to bring you up to date on what's happening:
For those of you attending, we'll see you there! And for those of you not lucky enough to get tickets, don't fear -- we'll be providing you with all of the information from the show floor!

BlizzCon Countdown: 3 days to go!

Are you excited yet? In just a few short days we'll be hearing all of the exciting news Blizzard has been sitting on these past few months. We're going to be hearing all sorts of news about StarCraft II, the next big thing (or things!) for World of Warcraft, and who knows what else Blizzard might have in store for us. Just yesterday we got an official schedule of events. So for those of you attending, I ask which panels and events are you most excited about seeing? And to those who won't be making it out to the convention, I ask which events do you most want us to get you video coverage of? (Of course we're going to cover as much as we can, but it's a big convention, and we have a limited number of people with cameras!) So tell us: what can't you wait to see?

BlizzCon Countdown: 4 days to go!

We're getting ever closer to the Big Day! In our countdown yesterday, we asked what you would ask Blizzard if you had the chance, so we can ask them when we have the chance -- and keep sending us questions! They're great! Today, however, we're tackling a much less serious topic. Judging from the pictures from the 2005 show floor, I'm pretty sure we'll be seeing plenty of players taking off this opportunity to show off elaborate costumes. But which of you, dear readers, will be heading out to the con dressed as a Night Elf or a Warlock? (And for those of you who haven't yet considered attire, there's plenty of costume inspiration on the 2005 BlizzCon site -- though it may be a bit late to start thinking about costumes.)

BlizzCon Countdown: 5 days to BlizzCon

We've got Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and then, on the 5th day, we have BlizzCon! And over at WoW Insider HQ we're busying ourselves with preparations. Laptops? Check! Video cameras? Check! Nintendo DS to play with while waiting in line for the demo stations? Check! Awesome murloc costumes? Well, maybe that's going a little too far. But one thing we're missing is your questions. We're going to be spending two days in the middle of a crowd of Blizzard employees -- and at some point we're going to be talking to some of them. And for those of you who don't get to come (and perhaps even those of you who are joining us there!), what we want are your questions. If you had one question to ask the CMs or devs in person, what would it be? Give us your questions, and we'll pick the best of them to take along to BlizzCon with us.

BlizzCon Countdown: 6 days to go!

Over here at WoW Insider HQ, we've been busy preparing for BlizzCon, now less than a week away, but details on what we're going to see there are still sparse. So with less than a week remaining, I'm going to do a rundown of what we do know:
As the week progresses, we'll probably be able to add some scraps of information to this list, but, of course, Blizzard is doing a very good job of keeping any big announcements hidden.

BlizzCon Countdown: 7 days to go!

Ah, BlizzCon. Two solid days of all-Blizzard-all-the-time entertainment is coming your way next week. And even if you can't be there yourself, you can expect full coverage of everything happening on the show floor to be here on WoW Insider -- so be prepared to live vicariously through our videos and photo galleries. (I've got 1000 pictures worth of storage for my digital camera -- but the question is whether that will be enough!) But while we're waiting for the convention to begin, we're scratching the days off on our calendar and thinking about what we're going to see when it all begins. Yesterday, we asked you what feature you most wanted to see in the expansion, and an overwhelming number of you answered that what you most wanted was either new classes or hero classes.

So today, let's continue that thought. I won't try to make a poll for today's discussion, because there are simply too many possibilities. Instead I'll just ask: what do you want to see from a new class in World of Warcraft? Or a Hero class?

BlizzCon Countdown: 8 days to go!

We're just about a week away from the launch of this year's BlizzCon! (And before you start arguing my math skills, yes, I am counting today itself as a day.) In yesterday's countdown, I asked you all what you were most hoping to see at the convention, and you overwhelmingly replied that you wanted to know all there was to know about the next expansion. Unfortunately, official details on the next expansion are non-existent -- but their silence on the subject to this point just means we're quite likely to hear some juicy details come BlizzCon. And in the meantime I'll pose this question: what feature do you most hope to see in the next expansion?

Our opinion poll is over, but you can check out the results in our day seven countdown!

BlizzCon Countdown: 9 days to go!

We've got a scant 9 days until BlizzCon 2007 kicks of in Anaheim California. And even if you're not going, you've got to be at least a little bit interested what Blizzard might be announcing there. So with 9 days remaining, I'm asking what you're hoping to see unveiled at the Anaheim Convention Center just over a week from now.

The poll that used to live here has gone -- but even if you can't vote any more, you can still see what everyone thought!
