wowhead should have its own party anywayscall it wowheadconxD
could not last 2 years because of millitary service and the year I was planning to go there is nothing, damn =/hope atleast they give something in spring or early summer (cross fingers) and not everything in a big "october/november hell" like last year of games that came out
*Sees no Blizzcon 2012*It truely is the end of the world!
I really have no issue with them taking a year off Blizzcon to focus on getting the products out this year. They should and will focus on getting D3, Mists and Heart of the Swarm out and hopefully that's exactly what happens. I guess this could blow up in their face if these games are delayed any longer. One thing, I've noticed, the media and podcasters seem to be the ones more upset than anyone about this... little obvious they are the ones that go every year so that's understandable but Blizz has a pretty crucial year ahead of them, this seems like a smart decision imo. Bring on D3 and Mists PLZ :)
No blizzcon this year because they have nothing to reveal this year, and they want MOP and the other 2 games out faster. They don't want another blizzcon 2010 : /
