It's in Vegas, baby...my hometown current place of residence :) I'll be there with bells on.

http://www.lvcva.com/meetings/convention-calendar-detail.jsp?id=65126

July 30-31, 2010. Apparently LVCVA jumped the gun on releasing this info.

Update:

Confirmed false by Blizzard themselves. Damn these interwebs.

Hmmm. Vegas in July is not cheap, nor not anywhere as temperate as the Coast. I might have reservations on going there.

You CAN find cheap rooms in Vegas, but I prefer not to stay in the Excalibur or Circus Circus.

You probably won't get lice at Excalibur. What more do you want?

Quote
For the past day WoW.com has been hard at work getting the story straight on the discrepancies between what the Las Vegas Convention Center was saying about BlizzCon 2010, and what Blizzard was saying. Until recently, the LVCC had been telling us, and others, who inquired that BlizzCon 2010 was being held there July 30th and 31st. Blizzard was, more or less, denying it. Given both organizations are quite large and reputable, this was quite a confusing situation.

However as of this afternoon, the Las Vegas Convention Center emailed us to let us know that due to their human error, the confirmation they were giving was false.

According to the LVCC, Blizzard and the LVCC had spoken once about having BlizzCon 2010 in Las Vegas, and a hold was placed on those dates as a marketing tactic to entice Blizzard to the area. However, that hold was inadvertently turned into a confirmed booking, leading to the inaccurate confirmations and resulting issues.

The LVCC has apologized for the confusion, and thus ends the saga of BlizzCon in Las Vegas.

Who knows, could just be them denying it for now.

I did find it odd that they would possibly move there as it didn't make much sense. Anaheim is right down the road from Blizzard HQ, and they are nowhere NEAR max capacity for that convention center.

It was pretty crowded last year, but yeah - they still could jam more stuff in there.

But that Captain's salami tray was tight, yo. You plump for the roast pork loin, dogg?

Blizzcon 2010 announced

October 22-23 in Anaheim.

http://us.blizzard.com/blizzcon/?rhtml=y

I'm glad it's later, personally. I'm already headed out to DC in the summer for a week or so. It will be interesting to see how this relates to the expansion.

With new trans-dimensional pocket technology that triples the size of the Anaheim Convention Center without taking up more real estate, and Justin Bieber as the musical guest as he matures from his teeny bopper ways into hardcore rock 'n roll. Also as a bonus: a first glimpse of Blizzard's new MMO and every attendee gets the option to upgrade their ticket to have an 'escort' who cosplays as a Blizzard I.P. character and is available for after parties.

~insert way too many expletives here~

I was 7,269 in queue.

They sold out around 3000 or so. Suddenly went to the stupid sold out message, didn't catch the exact number remaining ahead of me.

Looks like there were only 20,000 tickets available, if everyone ahead of me was buying 5 each.

To everyone who bought the tickets just to sell them on Ebay: DIE IN A MOTHERFUCKING CAR FIRE YOU RAPACIOUS AVARICIOUS COCKSUCKERS!!~~

The second batch on Saturday will probably be larger if this one was only 20k.

Well, I was hitting F5 nonstop from 1050 on.

Still came in at 7269. Must be the connection from here in Korea :(:(:(:(:(

I hope Saturday is better. That's 2am Sunday my time. Should be fun waking up then just to wait in an e-line.

Not that it makes it any better, but the volume of tickets on ebay is still very low compared to the total amount of tickets.

Think of it less that I make you feel short, and more like you are one step closer to actually becoming a dwarf female IRL. I mean, hell, that's what I want.
