    Blizzcon 2014 (November7, 8) DISCUSSION

    I didn't even think they'd have one this year but I guess they have a lot to announce. It's been a year since Heart of the Swarm, I'm skeptical they have enough of Legacy of the Void to show off. Which leaves WoD content, Hearthstone goodies and Heroes of the Storm.

    They aren't going to show Titan, recall it was scrapped nearly a year ago and rebooted from scratch. So that's years and years away.

    They have one unannounced game, so that may be the focal point for fresh reveals.

    Tickets will go on sale for $199 on Wednesday, May 7 at 7 p.m. PT and again on Saturday, May 10 at 10 a.m. PT. Additionally, tickets for a pre-BlizzCon dinner benefiting Children's Hospital of Orange County, Calif. will go on sale May 14 at 7 p.m. PDT. They are $750 each and include BlizzCon admission.
    Good luck getting tickets.

    Me and gf were debating a trip to cali later this year and I'm debating going... but $199 each is pretty rough. She's not into this kinda thing either so its a tough sell.

    Hahahaha!! Really?? Gtfo?! Maybe it was because they were going all tab/target on that shit. Damn Blizzard I want to like your next MMO so scrapping is probably the best news I've heard.

    And on that note, no reason to go back to Blizzcon unless they are announcing Titan soo...

    Blizzcon tickets pay for themselves if you buy 5 when you get in or sell the goodie bag afterwards.

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    Two years ago tickets sold out when I was 3rd in que, had 5 tickets ready for purchase to resell. I thought they took preventative measures like battlenet names on the tickets or names must be in within a week so you couldn't buy and resell anymore.

    If its still possible to resell them, then I will for sure go for 4-5 again. We were looking at going on vacation for 3-8 days in/around Anaheim anyway, and I might have a friend interested as well.

    The countermeasures increase the risk that you'll be left with unsold tickets but it's not impossible. YMMV.

    Since I don't know if my gf will want to go or my friend can afford it, my current tickets are on eBay and I'll be trying to get more tomorrow. I hate to be that guy, but if I can use the money from the tickets for a chance to go for free or at least pay for the plane tickets it would be huge. It's a hell of a trip from Jersey.

    Wow got my ticket but what a bitch it was. Fuck wells fargo for denying my purchase with more than enough money in the account. Had to scramble to find someone with a spare 200 that would let me use their card to buy it. Luckily my mother came thru lol. Bout to go cancel my bank tho.

    If anyone wanted to go but couldn't get tickets, I'll be putting up 3-6 up for sale in buy sell trade. Looks like less of us are going to go then originally planned and I don't wanna deal with eBay when BG'ers might wanna go.

    I got my ticket on Saturday after failing on Wednesday. Given that I live in San Diego, I'm debating if I should get a hotel or just drive back and forth.

    Would there even be anything to show? Didn't it get scrapped and repurposed?

    70% of their Titan development team was moved to other projects in 2013. It's unlikely they've ramped up enough to have a demo or anything to show for this year. They haven't said they're definitely not showing Titan, but expecting it to be there instead of their unannounced smaller scale title is a bit optimistic.

    So ready for this to be here. How many ppl here are going? I'm rolling solo but definitely would be cool to meet up with some BGers there.
