    This is INCREDIBLY dissapointing as November 10th 2014+ is WAY to far away for WoWs expansion release. People are already bored and leaving, and its a real problem to have these huge year long or longer gaps between expansions. Meanwhile what is blizzard doing about it? Nothing.. or possibly holding back release to sell blizzcon tickets.
    Erm, they have lots of other things they can talk about. If they release WoD after blizz-con it is practically suicide for the game. They need to release it before and they can use the convention to talk about 6.1.

    They can also talk about the WoW movie, Starcraft, Diablo, Heroes of the storm and any new projects.

    But they really should take some big critics for not even getting the expansion out that was announched at last Blizzcon with the "sooner than you think" comment....
    You do know how large blizzard is? They probably have an entire team dedicated to doing blizz-con.

    To launch the expansion less than month before Blizzcon would be shown as rude cause guilds will still be in the hunt for world fist 1 month after release.

    This leaves the week of 21st of september as the only possible release date. But not really. Cause with less than 6 months to this date... and the game not even in real alpha.... Blizzard can not stick this date now.. later... or ever.

    So late November is right now the first possible release of WOD.
    Blizz-con doesn't revolve around world of warcraft. Who cares if guilds are progressing. Its a game.

    And please stop using ... when you don't need too.

    I expect a lot of QQ if there's no queue, and overall website instability, people trying to complete the payment process and seeing its sold out or didn't process properly because of the site getting hammered. With the queue, you knew you were guaranteed the ticket or not and didn't have to rush to fill in all your information

    I guess it's an "event" ticketing service so they probably prepare themselves somehow. I wonder if EventBrite has done anything of this scale

    Maybe they will announce the next WoW expansion and tell us itll be out by next year at this time!!!, then back track and tell us itll be out in December 2016

    That has me concerned as well. Here's to hoping that Blizzard informed them of how insanely crazy it's going to be, and that they're prepared for it.

    Going to guess Starcraft 2 Protoss campaign details at blizzcon this year. That's what I'm personally hoping for anyway.

    I would love to get over for a Blizzcon at some point, also take in a Ducks game while I'm there.

    It costs a lot of money sadly

    This was my first impression as well. I certainly hope not. I'm hoping they'll show off what the rest of the expansion has in store with 6.1 and beyond (since we'll be a couple months into launch by then please god). And the movie trailer better drop!

    Here's an idea : Have Blizzcon in another damn city once in a while , that is all.

    And half the ticket go to ebay, this will be a fun blizzcon I bet good thing I have no interest in travailing cross the country for it.

    That would cost them more money they are not in it to SPEND money they are in it to MAKE more cause having a pay to play WoW MMO WITH a cash shop isn't enough.

    People being angry over companies earning money. Good times.

    Highly unlikely since they scrapped it just early last year to start over. Titan at this point should be recognized as "nonexistant" until we actually see something.

    They would be "making money" if the tickets were 50bucks a piece, but as is the Blizzard custom, they turn everything into a money grab in hopes of cashing in as much as possible before WoW becomes irrelevant to the mass consumer.

    They already said, they found way to make it work, reworked bones and Titan is once again in full development stage. So there is a good chance, something could be finally to see

    Anyway..Blizzard has more games than ever before - SC, WoW, Diablo, HS, HotS, Titan and at least one unannounced game...plus movie.. there is tons of possibilities for nex Blizzcon

    They could actually invite some of the leading guilds and have them go for worlds firsts live at BlizzCon...

    Except that they said every time they do one it's a net loss. They lose money doing blizzcon even after all the tickets and swag that is sold. but it's worth it because they know the fans have fun. and the devs too.

    Bzzt.

    They have said that Blizzcon is operating at a loss, but the promotional aspects make up for that.

    Hmm... i can't see them doing a live raid unless WoD is out by a milestone (2-3 months). This wishful thinking is going to get me killed

    they should split Blizzcon into Blizzcon West Blizzcon East .... i live on the east coast would love to go, i am however not wanting to pay to fly , hotel etc.... why not have it at the same time in 2 locations

    for example west coasters have it in its original spot and for the east coasters have it in like atlanta or something. that way it opens more options for those of us who rather just drive 2-10hrs rather than spend 2k a year for room and board and tickets.
