BlizzCon 2011 ticket barcodes are being sent out now

If you purchased an actual ticket to BlizzCon 2011 (as opposed to a Virtual Ticket), then you may want to start checking your inbox today. Blizzard has begun to mail out tickets to its respective lucky purchasers, and that might mean you! You can print out your ticket and just sort of look at it for a month. You can even fashion a crude lanyard for it from yarn and macaroni.

Be sure to check out the BlizzCon merchandise presale if you haven't yet, and of course, tune in for all of our BlizzCon coverage here at WoW Insider. If you're going to be at the con -- and lucky you, by the way -- then stop by the BlizzCon 2011 WoW Insider Reader Meetup, sponsored by Wowhead!

Second batch of BlizzCon tickets on sale Wednesday, May 25

Here's a quick reminder for everyone trying for BlizzCon 2011 tickets again -- the second batch of tickets is going on sale Wednesday, May 25 at 7 p.m. Pacific, 10 p.m. Eastern. The first batch of tickets sold out in seconds -- but unlike other years, not many problems were reported, and things went surprisingly smoothly.

To purchase tickets, you'll need to go to Blizzard's BlizzCon tickets page. This is the page you are going to want to refresh constantly in order to purchase passes. Tickets sell out in literally seconds, so be quick with refreshing and clicking purchase.

Once you click purchase, you'll be placed into a queue where you will wait for your chance to purchase tickets. If you are one of the lucky few, you'll be brought immediately to the purchase page. Tickets cost $175 each and are limited to four tickets per household/address.

Here are some tips when attempting to purchase BlizzCon tickets:
  • Log into your Battle.net account prior to going to the ticket page.
  • The ticket queue will reach critical mass in seconds -- you need to refresh quickly and often.
  • Start refreshing prior to the exact moment tickets go on sale. Everyone's clocks are different.
Also, remember that the ticket information for each ticket you bought needs to be filled out and completed by June 10 at 8 p.m. Pacific time. If you need to change the information later than that date, check the BlizzCon tickets badge information page.

BlizzCon 2011: Round one of ticket sales are sold out

The first round of tickets for BlizzCon 2011 is sold out. Would-be convention-goers snagged up the tickets quickly, as predicted, and queues reached into the 12,000-15,000 range. BlizzCon tickets will go on sale once more on Wednesday, May 25, at 7 p.m. PST (10 p.m. EST).

Here are some fun BlizzCon ticket facts:
  • Based on queue positions when tickets sold out, likely less than 4,000 total transactions were completed.
  • The WoW Insider staff all clicked to buy our tickets at nearly the exact same second. Some of us didn't get a queue. Others ended up 13,000 deep.
  • Whether or not you're getting a BlizzCon ticket today was a matter of one single second.
Did you get the number of tickets you needed? Are you ready for BlizzCon? I got my tickets, and cannot wait to see everyone in October at the annual WoW Insider reader meetup party.

Breakfast Topic: Are you attempting to buy BlizzCon tickets today?

Tickets to BlizzCon 2011 are going on sale today, and if past years' sales are any indication, tickets will sell out fast -- probably in the first second. You read that right. One damn second.

That's a pretty strong testament to peoples' love for the Blizzard brand. After all, there are plenty of reasons to not want to go to BlizzCon. Tickets are more expensive than ever, costing $175 each. For many of us, lodging and airfare are even bigger expenses. And after spending what may amount to a thousand dollars or more, most our time at BlizzCon will be spent waiting in lines. Line after line after line after line.

And yet, despite all those reasons not to go, tickets will still sell out today in 1 second.

Given the long odds and high costs of attending, are you still going to be trying to get that elusive ticket (or four) to BlizzCon 2011 today? Or are you taking a pass this year?

BlizzCon 2010: Online ticket printing now available

Those of you pulling your hair out over not having gotten your BlizzCon 2010 tickets by email have some good news today: Blue poster Bashiok confirms that you now have the ability -- finally -- to print tickets via your Battle.net account.

If you have not yet received an email with your ticket barcodes, you can now view and print your BlizzCon ticket by:

1. Ticket purchaser logs in to their account at http://www.blizzard.com/store
2. Then visit https://www.battle.net/account/management/orders.html
3. Select the order entry containing the BlizzCon tickets purchased
4. Click on View/Edit Attendee Details button
5. Below each ticket a PRINT TICKET button is now available

This will bring you to a printable ticket page which includes that ticket's barcode. It's important to bring this barcode with you as it will expedite your badge pickup once you're at the event.

For those that have already received emails with barcodes this page has the same information as the email, and isn't necessary to view or reprint them if you already have.


For those unfamiliar with the process, it's not necessary to bring printed tickets with barcodes to the BlizzCon site, but they sure as heck make the badge pickup process easier. If you haven't already printed your ticket, now is an excellent time to do so -- BlizzCon 2010 is a mere 8 days away!

BlizzCon 48-hour presale delayed due to site issues

Blizzard is offering those who bought BlizzCon 2010 tickets, even DirecTV virtual tickets, the opportunity to buy exclusive BlizzCon merchandise online for 48 hours this weekend -- or at least they were supposed to, hours ago. Right now, the store is completely busted and no one is able to access the exclusive items. Blizzard is on the case, according to a forum post, but there's no ETA on when people will actually be able to make purchases.

UPDATE: Blizzard has updated the original post saying that the sale will begin Sunday, Oct. 10 at 10 a.m. PST.

BlizzCon store's 48-hour online pre-sale

If you've ever been to a convention and seen all of that wonderful swag, you've also seen the lines to procure that wonderful swag. It's annoying to wait in a line for an hour just to buy a T-shirt that you can only get at that venue.

Blizzard is bypassing this issue by allowing anyone who has purchased a BlizzCon ticket to grab those unique merchandise items ahead of time and online. No fighting over the last murloc head can cozy or Raynor onesie for your child, just simple online transactions with the goods being shipped directly to your home.

This is only for people who have actual tickets to the event. Anyone with a virtual ticket will have to wait until the 13th to get in on their own 48-hour sale. If you don't fall into either of those groups and still want to get in on the swag, then you need to go buy your virtual ticket before 11:50 p.m. Pacific on Oct. 10 to qualify for the sale or you're out of luck.

Zarhym on the 48 hour sale
Heading to BlizzCon 2010? Planning to purchase some souvenirs at the show? From October 9 at 10 a.m. Pacific time until October 11 at 9:59 a.m., BlizzCon 2010 ticket holders will have the opportunity to purchase select BlizzCon 2010 store merchandise online (while supplies last). Items purchased through this sale will be shipped directly to your home, giving you more time to take in the panels, tournaments, and other events at the show. To participate, log in to the online Blizzard Store during the sale hours using the Battle.net account provided when you purchased your BlizzCon 2010 ticket (viewable in the buyer's Order History), and head to the More Products section. A second 48-hour sale for BlizzCon Virtual Ticket purchasers will be taking place beginning October 13 -- place your order by October 10 to participate.

BlizzCon ticket barcodes ideally emailing next week

Bashiok has confirmed that Blizzard is anticipating emailing out BlizzCon ticket barcodes next week. If you were lucky enough to have bought BlizzCon tickets, watch your email and make sure nothing gets lodged in the spam filter.

Your BlizzCon ticket barcode is required, along with a photo ID, to get into the show and pick up your badge. It is important to print out the barcode before you leave for Anaheim and bring it with you for registration.

Bashiok -- Re: Emailed Blizzcon Tickets
None have gone out yet. We're anticipating them to begin going out early next week.
