Speaking of Blizzcon, does anyone here do a meetup for the site or anything like that?

I'm not interested going to Blizzcon myself, but if enough SoLers of my acquaintance want to do a pre- or post-even get-together, I should be able to make an appearance. I live pretty close.

Bumpy.

This Blizzcon will be quite interesting, since it will make clear who's currently in charge in the respective projects.

The current departure of many of the old guard is quite irritating, but then again.. (quote from somebody at MMO-C: )

Quote:
Not so long ago someone (think it was Ghostcrawler?) talked about how Blizzard was impossible to advance through because many of the old dogs have been there for 10+ years and weren't going anywhere. This might be a good thing if it brings new blood and new ideas up the ranks for once, but hard to say at this point if there will be any effect at all, bad or good.
Time will tell....

Just come to the Hilton party after each day of Blizzcon and hang out. It can be loud but I usually peel off with my friends and one or two of my old blizz coworkers and we have drinks somewhere on the second floor.

Is the thing about getting 200$ if a SoLer punches you in the face still current?

Gotta find arguments to convince Hlaalu.

Honestly if I gained like 5 more pounds and shaved my mustache everyone would think I'm Jontron.

Sounds like a plan. Do I just show up? Is there a password? Do I say I know you?

The hilton party is open to all. It's literally just blizzard pans packing the (rather large) lobby of the Anaheim Hilton and drinking at the bar. Lots of people show up who don't go to Blizzcon.

If you want PM me for my cell number.

Lots of raunchy sex goes on at Blizzcon. Cosplay girls have notoriously low self esteem.

I mean, unless that's the hope, I don't think him telling his girlfriend he's after the raunchy sex is the best option.

Haha well as much fun as that would be, I told her what to expect at the convention and if she's tired and needs to rest,or wants to go back to the room or whatever she can do so but I'm going to do my own thing. I explained it's only 2 days and there's a lot to do and see so I'm usually in go mode and only sit for panels and to play

I've known a few people who have been to the Hilton parties and have all said great things about them. Unfortunately for me I won't be going to this year's and next year's isn't looking so great either. Maybe the year after that!

So is it me, or is this suspicious?
http://gear.blizzard.com/blizzcon-20...ms-of-evil-tee

Diablo III: Realms of Evil Tee

I may be reading too much into this, but that kinda reads like an expansion title, doesn't it? It's also weirdly missing a women's size option, like maybe it was put up by mistake? All the other shirts are either very generic names ("WarCraft tee", "Starcraft Tee", etc) or describing the contents of the shirt ("World of Warcraft Mrrrgl Murloc Tee", etc). Just, the way it's labeled seems suspicious to me, when "Realms of Evil" doesn't refer to anything specifically like say, a recent patch or season and the image is mostly a generic type logo (no "realms" really depicted)

Either way, two diablo shirts in one Blizzcon where last year you would barely know Diablo was a Blizzard franchise with how little attention was dedicated to it, I'm assuming we are getting a second expansion announcement.

With all the clues we've been given + the fact that it's also Diablo's 20th anniversary we could already safely assume there would be a game reveal at Blizzcon.
What this seems to confirm is that it's a D3 expansion.

I'm a little disappointed, I was hoping for a new game in the franchise. I'm not sure I like Diablo 3's current gameplay direction.
There can be way too much power difference between two characters of the same level. A Difference that is not based on the player's skill.
That's a problem when I can't play the game with a friend who spends 2h per day on the game when I only play it 2h per week. Well nothing really stops me to play with him, but following loot trails and being totally useless against monsters gets boring quite fast.
And yeah I've tried following the "meta" and use viable builds, but I really don't think that's what Diablo should be.
