Well this sucks. I was hoping to see them do dual events on each coast so more could attend. I have never complain about anything that Blizz did but this one cuts deep. I have a simple request....Hold an Ingame Blizzcon.Set it up as a neutral area so all can attend. Give us something & if it is a hit do it each year along with the real Blizzcon.
More words from our favorite CM.
Yeah, i knew blizzard wouldn't do any BlizzCon this year.They have been working on D3, MoP and the new patch that is coming on world of warcraft, its too bad, but what you choose? play or go to blizzcon, for me its better BlizzCon because i love to win surprises and everything :D
That's a shame because that means no Wowhead party :(
Well that kinda sucks...i loved watching videos every year on the dances and i love love love the costume contests... =/ sad sad day...
