    3) The buyer is just as responsible, who also has the "cash lying around"...those people don't make you sick too? It seems simply that people with more money than you make you sick.

    4) Revisit #1. Execute the plan.
    Think of it this way. Someone had been budgeting and saving up money to go to BlizzCon for a year or two. They have enough money for the trip and the tickets and all other fees, but it's tight. They want to meet friends, have a good time, go somewhere. The tickets sell out, and the only way for them to go is to buy ridiculously inflated tickets, because some scalper assholes bought up as many as they could making it so actual fans get screwed over. This is my issue with it. I wouldn't care if they just bought four tickets and it turned out someone else wasn't gonna go, so they sold the tickets at price/very close to the actual price to make back their losses, but they don't. Instead, they charge double, triple, or anywhere inbetween, and this is outrageous to me.

    The last couple times I went to Blizzcon there were people selling tickets at the convention, and if they are following state laws they cannot sell them for more than the original price.


    Also a lot of those Ebay tickets are scams.

    Tickets should be sold at their real value instead of being sold via a lottery sale... Start prices at 10.000$ dollars a ticket and tick off like 1 dollar every minute, wait till all tickets are sold off. No more whining, well aside from the cheapskates that can't afford it and expect to get a free ride...

    Blizzard has stockholders to please, and the super crazy wow fans are those that deserve it the most no?...

    I laugh every time they have one of these. People pay out the a$$ to go to these events, catch PPV streams, buy swag, etc.. I can just see Blizzard laughing at this monster they have created that generates so much income. It's kind of ironic that they won't put enough people on the team to crank content out fast enough for the player base, instead they do shady shit like cutting out flight.

    And those smart people can be reported and have their auction null in void. Because Ebay clearly states...

    No matter where you live or on what eBay site you're registered, listings for events that take place in regulated locations must follow the guidelines for that location.
    And California state law says you can't resell tickets for more than the original price.

    If your not fondling kids nobody cares, 50 yr old ppl can enjoy disneyland just like they can enjoy blizzcon.

    And for the "theres nothing new to announce why go at all?!" crowd, its barely about the convention itself. It's about being able to party with other dorks from all over the world and load up your battle net account with a ton of new friends to play with over the course of the next year.

    Even at $199 it should include the air fare and hotel booking. That's ridiculous. I thought the previous ones were like $40. Or is that just the virtual ticket?

    That would be a virtual ticket... the cheapest Blizzcon tickets have ever sold for is $100 but that was awhile back.

    Don't worry Eventbrite's ToS prevents them from selling on Ebay, even if they show up on their they can't actually be sold.
    Never stopped them yet.

    for those talking about Ebay just wait the prices will drop... A LOT. i've had friends that had to resort to ebay and never paid more than 50.00 over retail. people can place them up for outrages prices but you can watch and get decent deals. Its really impossible to stop. Oh i can't sell my ticket?? here buy this rock for 250.00 and i'll give you a ticket for free! (we did this in college for student tickets to games .. the school couldn't do anything).
