BlizzCon 2010 Announced! 03/25/10

If you’ve been holding your breath waiting to find out when and where the next BlizzCon would be held, then… you’ve probably passed out by now. But if you’ve just been patiently watching for an announcement, then we’ve got good news for you: BlizzCon will be returning to the Anaheim Convention Center on Friday, October 22 through Saturday, October 23! Just as in years past, BlizzCon 2010 will feature an exciting mix of discussion panels, tournaments, hands-on gameplay, contests, and much more. Check out the announcement press release, and keep an eye on in the months ahead for further details, including ticketing information.

Pack your bags and head out to sunny California.  I went last year.  I stayed with some friends, that I met through WoW, and had a really good time.  So get your costumes crafting going.  Glitterbumps, get your voice acting practice started. And do not hold your breath, you might not even get tickets.

Blizzcon ’09 Quick Reflection

August 23rd, 2009 Comments off

As I sit here in the airport waiting for our flight to leave I thought I would give some initial thoughts on expansion 3.
*Goblins are op
*Worgans need some “cool” buffs.
*Every expansion feels like this was their original view for the game. This is a good thing.
*Many new guild options, including talent trees and guild patterns and heirlooms.

All in all I was pretty impressed with what I played and saw at the panels. When I get home and have some time, I will expand on all of these points.
