How to buy BlizzCon 2014 tickets through Eventbrite

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.

BlizzCon Benefit Dinner tickets on sale tonight

BlizzCon Benefit Dinner tickets on sale tonight
If you're still on the lookout for BlizzCon tickets -- and have deep pockets -- tonight's your last chance to get them from Blizzard. Tonight at 7 pm Pacific (10 pm Eastern), Benefit Dinner tickets go on sale for $500 each. Though they're costly, these tickets not only get you entry to BlizzCon, you also get to attend dinner with the Blizzard staff on Thursday before BlizzCon kicks off, giving you, as Blizzard puts it, "an opportunity to meet and chat with game developers, artists, executives and other folks from Blizzard Entertainment." You'll also get a signed piece of Blizzard artwork in addition to the usual BlizzCon swag. And it's for a good cause: all proceeds from the event go to the Children's Hospital of Orange County.

If you're looking for a chance to nab a ticket of your own, be online and ready before 7 pm Pacific (10 pm Eastern) and check out our ticket purchasing tips to get an edge on the competition. There are only 200 tickets available and, even at $500 each, they're certain to sell out quickly. But even if you don't get a ticket, remember that virtual tickets will be available later and you can still enjoy BlizzCon even without a ticket.
