I'm currently still trying to get tickets through Blizzard's trainwreck of an online store, but I'm going.

Anyone else going?

I am assuming his fiance will run him over shortly by accident for playing too much WoW.  Pretty sure that this trip will push her over the edge too.  Probably when she picks him up at the airport while driving drunk in his new BMW M-whatever-the-fuck.

Family!   awesome, for real

Tickets to BlizzCon 2008 are now sold out. We'd like to thank everyone once again for their overwhelming interest in this year's show. If you were unable to secure tickets, please keep in mind that DIRECTV will be broadcasting BlizzCon live from the Anaheim Convention Center on October 11 and 12. In the meantime, keep an eye on the BlizzCon 2008 website for updates on panels, exhibits, events, and more. We look forward to meeting some of you at the show!

That was VERY fast.

Statement from Mike Morhaime  08/13/08

Blizzard Gamers,

On behalf of everyone at Blizzard, I want to apologize for the challenges and frustrations you experienced while trying to purchase BlizzCon tickets on Monday and Tuesday. BlizzCon is about the positive experiences you all have had with Blizzard games. As a result of this week's events, the excitement that many of you felt about the show has turned into dissatisfaction and disappointment.

Due to these circumstances, we've reevaluated our convention hall space and come up with some solutions that will allow us to offer 3,000 more tickets for sale. We know this will not be enough to satisfy the very high level of demand for tickets this year, but we want to ensure that BlizzCon remains a great experience for those of you who are able to attend. To avoid the issues many of you faced this week, we'll be selling these 3,000 via a lottery. We'll post further details once our plans are finalized. Please note that the lottery will only be open to those with an active Blizzard Account as of 9:00 PM PDT on August 12, the time that the “Sold Out” notice was posted.

I, and everyone else at Blizzard, share the frustration and disappointment that many of you have expressed as a result of this process. We'll do what it takes to avoid this type of situation in the future.

               Sincerely,

               Mike Morhaime

I wonder how many people misread the notice and think the lottery is for free tickets as opposed to a lottery for the ability to purchase tickets.

I'm wondering how many know that they had to have an active Blizzard account at the time that the tickets sold out a couple days ago, and how many of *those* people realize that their WoW account is not the same thing.

I had to explain to my boss what Warcraft was and why I was going to Blizzcon because I tried to get out of a weekend meeting.
