Your prediction for anniversary Blizzcon?

Joeygiggles 04-06-2016 02:24 PM

My prediction is that the Hilton Anaheim can suck it for charging about 500 a night

DreamingGod 04-06-2016 02:46 PM

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.

Yorenec 04-06-2016 08:40 PM

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.

Omacron 04-06-2016 09:07 PM

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.

DreamingGod 04-06-2016 09:40 PM

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

Joeygiggles 04-07-2016 11:27 AM

I ended up booking at the Double Tree, I have no idea who is going from my guild and people I game with so I said fuck it if I gotta just go with the GF ill do that

Gurzog 04-08-2016 02:06 AM

the only thing i think they would announce on blizzcon is legacy servers.

Sa'danak 04-08-2016 02:52 AM

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.

Warlock 04-08-2016 09:48 AM

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

Arashi 04-08-2016 11:42 AM

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.

Warlock 04-21-2016 09:44 PM

And no 1st round Blizzcon tickets for me :( I hope I get one on Saturday :(

Joeygiggles 04-21-2016 11:37 PM

Sounds good to me and yes it will be face value not trying to make a quick buck

Cool thanks :) I'll let you know. I'm still hoping I can just get one myself tomorrow :)

Warlock 04-23-2016 11:14 AM

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

Anasterian 04-23-2016 01:53 PM

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. :(

Ah that sucks :( Maybe you can still get one from another person like I am doing?

Warlock 04-23-2016 08:14 PM

Woo, ticket get! Thank you so much Joeygiggles! Surprisingly easy process on Universe's side too - I got an e-mail almost instantly to claim the ticket.

Joeygiggles 04-23-2016 09:49 PM

No problem!! Glad to help. I may have 1 more ticket just waiting to see if a friend is still going

Shekinah 05-11-2016 09:12 PM

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? :P
