Wow! It’s hard to believe that it is already that time of year again, but it is almost here. BlizzCon 2018 is quickly approaching and Opening Week, October 25th-29th, is looking to be full of fun events. BlizzCon itself doesn’t start until Nov. 2nd and the 3rd, but this year they want you to be able to get the most out of the virtual ticket and they’re allowing something special.
So, if you get the virtual ticket…you’ll get to play the WoW Classic BlizzCon Demo, from your own PC! That’s pretty cool, considering they’ve never done this sort of demo before and if you’re a fan of Classic WoW, you’ll get to experience the Vanilla platform that much sooner!
We’ve seen over the past couple of years how famous Twitch and YouTube gamers have become through sharing their gameplay and we’ve seen the fanbase of esports get larger and larger, especially with events like MDI (Mythic Dungeon Invitational). With the newest plans for the Virtual Ticket to BlizzCon, it really feels like Blizzard is reaching out and doing what they can for their fans, but is it enough? This is the part of the virtual ticket that bums me out… if you’re having all these cool events and esports for opening week, why not let us experience it?
So I know a lot of this may be streamed, but here is an opportunity for Blizzard to make the Virtual Ticket even better. To include the professional live stream of these events, with schedules, convenient links, and organization so you don’t miss the parts you really want…also highlights in case you did miss them! This way, if you’re not in California, you still get the opening week experience, without having to fork out a bunch of extra dough. What do you think of the BlizzCon hype, or what they may have to share with us for 2018?!?
