I’m a bit torn about the ticket price this year. Last year, I was willing to pay $150 because it was my first Blizzcon and I wanted to experience it. Now that I have, and now that I know what to expect, it’s a little harder to justify paying that price. The big announcement is going to be Diablo 3, which doesn’t interest me at all. The games they’ll have to play will be Diablo 3, perhaps the next
milking expansion of Starcraft, and World of Warcraft. The swag doesn’t do anything for me – I still have the unclaimed pet card on my desk.
Guess I’ve got a month to figure out what I want to do…
