In previous years, Blizzard has sold tickets through their own store -- which meant old hat BlizzCon
attendees knew what to expect when it came time to buy their tickets. But this year's switch to Eventbrite
means that most of us aren't quite sure how the ticketing process will work. However, Blizzard has posted a comprehensive walkthrough of the ticketing process
so you know just what to expect when the first batch of tickets goes up for sale this Wednesday
Key points to note are:
- General admission tickets will be on sale at Wednesday, May 7 at 7pm PDT and Saturday, May 10 at 10am PDT. Benefit dinner tickets will be on sale at Wednesday, May 14 at 7pm PDT.
- You can buy a maximum of four tickets -- or just two benefit dinner tickets -- per household.
- You'll need names and email addresses to associate with each ticket -- but if you don't have them when you buy, you should enter your own name and email address. Just be sure the names are accurate before June 6th!
- A commonly used trick in the past of clicking "buy" for a single ticket and changing the number at checkout won't work on Eventbrite -- the number of tickets you selected to purchase originally cannot be changed later, so be sure to select the right amount up-front!
We still don't have details on the ticket pickup process, but if it's like previous years you should expect the buyer to have to pick up tickets with an ID and possibly credit card.
