The day is finally here. The day fans were all waiting for since Blizzard announced the dates for Blizzcon. It doesn’t matter if you tried to purchase tickets online and couldn’t. It also doesn’t matter what order you like Warcraft, Starcraft, or Diablo. At 11 am PST, some major announcements will be made, sending excitement tingling through all of the Blizzard's Fans. Today already feels like Christmas to the entire Blizzard Fan base. The excitement, rumor and anticipation of what Mike Morhaime will/may be announcing is spreading like wildfires.
I purchased the virtual ticket. I will be able to view all the panels on my PC. I have a freezer stocked with pizza and Pepsi stocked in the fridge. I declare myself ready to battle. I will take bathroom breaks and get my food between panels. I will be watching all the panels on Warcraft and Starcraft first. I will also be watching the contests. I cant wait to see what happens with Jay Mohr this year. Every year as an attendee, we either loved him or hated him. He always tried to connect with us either way.
This weekend is going to be a big weekend for e-sports in North America. Players from all over the world compete in the finals for Starcraft 2 and World of Warcraft. Starcraft 2 is easily one of the leading games for e-sports online. The players have been working their tail off qualifying by winning tournaments all over the world. If your a fan of e-sports or would like to see what the fascination is about, you can watch the e-sports tournaments for free on Blizzcon.com.
I think the best part of the entire show could be the ending. The Foo Fighters are one of the best bands on Earth. They have a large collection of hits if your not a big fan. I will be blasting and watching the entire concert on my PC.
So if your a fan of Blizzard or not. You can watch some of the action for free on Blizzcon.com. If your a bigger fan, you can purchase the virtual ticket and watch the panels too.
Thank you for reading my incoherently worded article because I got a bad case Blizzcon excitement.
