I wonder if we'll get a big announcement. All the projects we know about don't really have anything to add. Overwatch is being released soon. Legion is in alpha/beta. Starcraft just got Covert Ops from last year....

So... new xpac for Starcraft? Maybe a Diablo expac coming. Warcraft 4? Galaxy of Starcraft?

Endless possibilities!

at this point the tickets probably give them more than the annual wow subs.

My original plans of going for the first time this year are super unlikely as of this moment but I have pretty high hopes for next year.

Depending on how much free time I have that weekend I may grab the virtual ticket but I'll probably be pretty busy.

Last year I had a really good time renting out a whole Airbnb house and splitting the cost 4 ways with some other people. I think it's much better than doing a hotel.

Also my money's on a Diablo expansion being the marquee announcement, maybe followed by an overwatch expansion or DLC plan.

Yeah. Diablo didn't get a lot of love last Blizzcon. Makes sense for them to do something with it.

I expect we'll see a detailed preview of Legions first patch to try to assure people it's not gonna fall down the stairs out the gate like Draenor did. Maybe a last trailer if things go dead wrong and the game slips launch (extremely doubtful).

Otherwise, yeah Diablo and Overwatch. Maybe more Nova missions. Bank on it.

Yeah I think Diablo expansion. I could also see a surprise in the way of something smaller, like a Hearthstone-size project.

You're not going far enough, Warlock. You're forgetting about the fabulous refreshing concept, The Diablo Among Us. The gritty mature adventure game for 25+ year olds like us who are eagerly awaiting the CORRUPTION expansion of D3.

Such bullshit. I got to the order page, entered my credit card info, "Oh I'm sorry, this info doesn't seem to be valid... please re-try" - I checked EVERYTHING, it was right. Fucking Universe refused to accept it. Then they sold out. Such bullshit... I'm so pissed.

Edit: Oh wait, there is still hope. I just got an e-mail about my failed payment and it looks like they are letting me resubmit from a different page? Seems to be going through? (I dunno, it's just sitting on "Please wait, while we process your order." - ok, I'll wait I guess?)

Edit 2: Yeah, it failed... bah... figured it would

This was going to be the first time I'd actually try to buy tickets and go to a Blizzcon rather than just use the live stream. Alas... my internet has been so bad these last few days, dropping randomly or going so slowly I can barely do anything, I had no chance.

My daughter is due on November 7. You guys think she'll arrive earlier if I end up raging over what is or isn't announced at Blizzcon?
