    Well, in every Blizzard gamer there is a level of 'geekness'. Here, this graph illustrates the levels of geekness.

    0---1---2---3---4---5...

    0: Knowing Blizzard or their pruducts
    1: Playing Blizzard product(s)
    2: In this level you are considered a 'fan' of Blizzard's product(s) by liking/playing alot.
    3: Doing anything related to Blizzard product's beyond playing (fan art, forum discussion etc.)
    4: Buying overpriced action figures, books, posters or T-shirts related to Blizzard product(s)
    5: Attaining BlizzCon and embarrassing yourself by wearing exaggerated costumes, dancing and singing about Blizzard products.

    I'd put you in level 3 unless you buy stuff, then you're 4 ^^

    lol nice list... but what about people that buy only T-shirts and posters and think that books and action figures are too high level of geekness for them? :) maybe we should put them in 3.5 level...

    /off topic

    these contests are great for talented people. I think I can make good and funny movies but since I'm from serbia and not alowed to participate in anything, even maybe considered a terrorist, I can't :P

    I was looking at all the prizes, and i read the costume one last being that its the least likely contest i would ever consider entering, and this cracked me up:
    # First Prize. One (1) qualified entrant will be chosen by Sponsor as the “First Prize Winner” and will receive a prize package consisting of one (1) full sized 47” limited edition Frostmourne™ replica sword created by Epic Weapons Inc., two (2) ATI Radeon HD 4870x2 video cards, and one (1) DirecTV Sat-Go Z11 with a combined approximate retail value of $1,879.00.
    Runner-up Prizes. Two (2) qualified entrant(s) will be chosen by Sponsor as “Runners Up,” and shall each receive one (1) Alienware®Area-51® m15x notebook, and one (1) ATI Radeon HD 4870x2 video card with an approximate retail value of $2,500.00.


    LOL I would hate to get first place and miss out on the area51 that 2nd and 3rd got.

    Wow, no kidding.. who the hell cares about a giant sword? Well I mean that's cool and all but compared to entire computer? I don't see why Runner up Prizes would be worth more than the grand prize, that seems a bit backwards... Grand should come with the Notebook too
  • #7 necronergal
    lol...i would go and dressup as a barbarian. lol. (no i wont) but i would like to see some diablo chars dressed up instead of them being 80% warcraft and 20%starcraft. lol come on witchdoctor and barbarian costumes.
  • #8 diablo_fenatic
    I like watching the contests, because it's really funny and people are just having a good time doing what they think is cool or just plain old stupid. If I were to ever go to BlizzCon, I think I would dress up as either Cain or a terrain marine with the big armor lol.
  • #9 Daaavid
    Whoa with those prizes i would think twice before saying that dressing yourself like a blizz character is dumb LOL!!

    2 ATI Radeon HD 4870x2 as a prize is great!! (dont care abot the frostmourne xD)
  • #10 tkrow21
    I'd prefer the latop and that graphics card to pop into my computer. That'd be awesome =]

    Yeah, really. Why is the second and third place prize worth more than the first place prize?

    I'd rather have a giant fucking sword than alienware laptop, tbh. Whats wrong with you guys!?!? would you not like the idea of chopping heads off in one swoop with a 47" sword!? (well, you'd have to sharpen it first and reinforce hilt but worth the effort) You could sell the other gpu and directv thing to get crap alienware.

    And i figure since its a blizzard contest, the winner would WANT something like the frostmourne. Its the thought that counts, not the $amount.

    Anyways, im still opted in for tickets... did they give them away yet?
  • #13 ZharTheMad
    The only way I'd join the costume contest is by spending hours in our backyard doing nothing but drinking beer, and if i manage to drive to blizzcon, I'd go in as Farnham the Drunk.

    I'd be in character, minus the shame.
