    So whats up with us internet folk, who are going to watch BlizzCon live streaming on the internet? Do we have to buy this ticket, or we will have to buy that PayPerView thingy?
  • #2 mockery
    These are just for the people who want to attend BlizzCon in person. I'm pretty sure there's no waiting to purchase the live stream on the Internet.

    I know we're all waiting BlizzCon for the D3 release date. But does Blizzard plan on letting us see anything else in the new future... new characters, items, etc? I noticed was down today due to construction; anyone know what that's about?

    My brother was in checkout and couldn't get the tickets because it said there was an error during the purchase confirmation...this is a load of bullocks.

    I was in position 3000(or so) from the start, and when I got down to 1000 (5 minutes to go), I was bumped back ten minutes. I'm ready to ****ing kill someone...
  • #15 SilVerSurFnStud
    wow those went way to fast, we never had a chance
  • #16 mockery
    And of course, tickets are already up for sale on eBay. Just shows ya that they need to reduce the number of tickets people should be allowed to buy.
  • #18 Eldius
    Anyone selling tickets on ebay should be identified and have their tickets immediately revoked. Blizzard said they were going to put a stop to that kind of ****.
  • #19 blood-doll
    hopefully they just make you show a photo id that matches that information submitted for the badge

    Did they say they were going to put an end to that? Because I just checked the FAQ and based on this little snippet, I'd say they're making it pretty easy for anybody to sell them:

    "What if I don't know the names of the guests I am bringing to BlizzCon?

    If you do not know the names of the guests you are bringing to BlizzCon and will not know by June 13, put all of the badges under your own name. Bring *all* of the printed bar-code emails, along with your photo ID, to BlizzCon, and you will be able to pick those up all of the badges yourself and distribute them to your guests. Photo ID will only be checked at the time of badge pick-up."
