Can't go to BlizzCon? Virtual tickets now on sale.

Yet again I find myself unable to attend BlizzCon. Deep sads. I work for WoW Insider and I've never gone to the con. But I have in the past availed myself of the Virtual Ticket, which means I can watch the various panels and events streamed live to my computer, and it's on sale again this year.

The virtual ticket FAQ answers a host of questions for those of us who can't go to the con, such as:
  • Does buying the virtual ticket get you whatever neat in-game stuff they're going to have at BlizzCon this year? Turns out the answer is yes, but they haven't announced what that will be yet.
  • If you want to watch the whole thing over again after BlizzCon, you absolutely can.
  • What languages will BlizzCon Virtual Ticket be available in? Just english. Sorry, non english speaking peoples.
So there you have it - head on over to the virtual ticket site if you're interested in ordering. Now if only I had a telepresence rig to go to the WoW Insider party.

European weekly maintenance: 19th August 2009

Greetings folks, the middle of the week beckons once more! Only a few more days until BlizzCon and the Big Reveal. Excited yet? Come on, be honest, we're all friends here. As the rest of Team boards their planes, trains, automobiles and - in Turpster's case - boats to rendezvous in sunny LA, some of us (eg me) has to stay behind and cover things remotely. While it would be nice to be there, I get to watch all the cool stuff from the privacy of my own living room come office, enjoy my Grunty (in six to eight weeks) and work in a brightly lit room on a comfy chair. Oh, and no blisters.

So, it's maintenance time. Thankfully, it's a brief week with a live maintenance (yes folks it's rolling restart time) for all realms between 5:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. CEST. As per usual every realm will receive the customary fifteen minute notice prior to being restarted. There we go, nice and simple. If my beloved cats let me (ha!), I'm sleeping right through this one but if you happen to be up an about, don't forget there's a lot to catch up on this week from the return of the Broodmother to the appearance of the patch 3.2.2 PTR servers.

See you on the other side!
