Default Blizzcon 2011

So, the Blizzcon 2011 tickets will be on sell on May 21 & 25. And since I will move to LA this August, I'm considering if I should take it as a closest chance in my life for attending Blizzcon.

Is anyone here going Blizzcon this year?

I'm going to be looking to split a hotel room if anyone's interested.

I'm going to make my "Warcraft IV Announcement" prediction again this year. I know I've been wrong for the past three years but either we get Warcraft IV or the rapture is happening this weekend, one of those is gonna happen.

My guess is:

Heart of the Swarm and Diablo III will definitely be playable. Non-negligible chance of next warcraft expansion being announced. Small but possible chance of first details of Titan, but likely nothing more than a teaser trailer with little to no actual gameplay footage.

No way, lol. W4 will need at least 3 years more to be announced.

Maybe I'm wrong, but don't expect it to happen this year anyway. Titan will probably get announced before, and that one needs still a lot of time for announcement.

As far as Blizzcons go, this one looks like it's going to be a big one, and a good one. If there's one to go to, this is probably it.

That's a definite possibility too, though Blizzard has kept it surprisingly under wraps if nothing about it has leaked to the hollywood press before Blizzcon.

Hmmm... if there is zero chance that they are going to announce the next xpac, I wonder if instead they are going to reveal details about the Deathwing fight/N'zoth raid... They have to talk something about WoW, but the idea of being able to play Diablo III.... oh yeah....

I'm going to be moving to NoCal in September... so I will have to give some serious thought about going as well....

Where in NorCal? And, dear God, why?

Last year's Blizzcon was an enormous disappointment. I'd bought the DirecTV package for three years at that point, and I won't be doing it again.

Fact is, it's a waste of money. All the juicy bits are leaked online almost immediately. Anything you can do in person you have to wait in line with hordes of sweaty neckbeards to participate in.

You do know the first hour on virtual blizzcon is free....Why don't you learn from your mistakes and watch the first hour and then decide if its worth the buy?

I HAVE learned from my mistakes. I'm not paying for something that I'll get for free anyway.

I have better things to spend my money on, and I don't have any reason to think there's going to be anything more noteworthy than we saw last year.

I have Scrolls of Lore.

Anything I'd find out at Blizzcon I'll find out here.

And Scrolls is free.

I will be buying the Virtual ticket because i love live events and always enjoy it from the Tourny's to the game panels, interviews, bands and announcements.

I hate not watching live events at a different time.. a good example of this is i would get veeery angry if we were watching something live like for instance the Royal Wedding and then someone (my damn Dad) pauses the DAMN THING!......

Absurd and ridiculous.

I right click the purchase ticket button at 10AM 0 sec, and I am queueing with 10k ppl right before me. I guess there's no chance for attending Blizzcon for me then...

Can always try again at the next ticket release?

It's a military thing. Getting stationed there and I have relatives nearby in San Lorenzo/Oakland so I'm good to go.

I'll end up buying the package just to watch the lore event and what Metzen gush over the awesomeness that is Thrall and for whatever mini-pet and SC 2 swag they give out.... cheaper than a hotel I suppose.

My predictions for Blizzcon 2010 were mostly right, so I'm gonna throw my hat in again. Diablo 3 beta will be playable. Heart of the Swarm will have its release date nailed down. South Seas expansion with Azshara will be announced. Deathwing's raid will be previewed, but not spoiled. No news from Titan. And then there will be the usual Q&As et cetera.

I will be very surprised if we get anything more than an optimistic release window for Heart of the Swarm. Blizzard doesn't have a habit of giving dates at events

If it's anything like last year, the juicy bits will come out a week early (LOLCATATRAILER), leaving Metzen to show us his latest Google Image Search project.

I'm planning to try to shut myself out of this corner of the internet as much as I can when its getting around BlizzCon time. My experience with the last couple Blizzard game reveals has taught me that surprises are much more fun.
