Update: BlizzCon Tickets Extended

Note: In case you don't get a BlizzCon ticket, Diablofans.com and Blizzplanet will be giving away a few free BlizzCon tickets via contests courtesy of Blizzard Entertainment.

Eyonix, from the WoW Forums Moderation team, updated info about the BlizzCon ticket sales. For further updates visit the source:

Update: 9:40 PM PDT - We have appreciated everyone’s patience as we've worked to address issues with the BlizzCon ticket sales today. To avoid having people stay up into the early hours attempting to make ticket purchases, we will take ticket sales down and continue implementing optimizations through tonight and tomorrow morning.

There are still plenty of tickets available, so if you weren't able to purchase tickets today, please check back tomorrow. We'll continue to provide updates on the World of Warcraft forums here.

This morning, we experienced some technical difficulties with ticket sales for BlizzCon. Please be aware that no tickets were sold during the service interruption. If you reached the confirmation screen but did not receive an email receipt, the order did not go through.

We have found and addressed the source of this morning’s issues, and ticket sales are now functioning correctly (though extremely high traffic volumes may still result in occasional delays). We’d like to apologize for the inconveniences caused by these issues, and to thank you for your patience as we resolved them.
