If you’re going to try to nab some tickets, take time beforehand to read up on this year’s ticket sales process and what’s new for 2017:

  • BlizzCon Ticket Info page – Get an overview of BlizzCon 2017 general admission tickets.
  • Ticket Purchasing Guide – Contains additional handy details on the ticket-sales process, including what information you’ll need to provide before trying to get tickets.

You’ll have until July 14 at 8:00 p.m. PDT to edit attendee information on your tickets, so it’s OK to enter your own name and email address for every ticket for now—just remember to go back and update this info before the deadline!

If you manage to grab tickets during this first sale, a second batch will go on sale Saturday, April 8 at 10:00 a.m. PDT. In addition, tickets to an exclusive pre-BlizzCon dinner to benefit Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) will go on sale Wednesday, April 12 at 7:00 p.m. PDT. For those unable to attend the show, in-depth coverage of BlizzCon will be available with the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket. Further details will be announced at a later date.

BlizzCon 2017 will take place November 3 and 4 at the Anaheim Convention Center, and tickets cost $199 each (plus applicable taxes and fees). Tickets to the BlizzCon Benefit Dinner cost $750 each (plus taxes and fees) and include BlizzCon admission. For more information, check out the official BlizzCon site.

    Man, I really wanted to go, but my friends pulled out this morning from our plans to go.

    I was hoping this was my year.

    Hope everyone has fun!

    I clicked within two seconds of them going on sale (had just refreshed), got in line, and after 4 minutes of waiting was dumped out with a 'No Tickets are Available' message. Crazy.

    I feel like events like these need to be a lottery system instead of 'first-come, first-served' - at least then people would feel like they had a shot.

    First-come is much fairer than a lottery system when it comes to such things, though.

    Quite amazed that I managed to get tickets this time around. Was expecting the same disappointment and frustration as Wednesday evening.

    Was there bang on time same thing 4 minutes kicked out no tickets available.

    If it was to genuine just not being lucky I wouldn't mind but it's not its scalping automated bots and because of it I feel like I've just been repeatedly punched in the nuts.

    Pretty sure the capacity is around 25k? Yes I know there are some special people that will get an invite regardless.

    Its unfortunate that the second day has an early buy time. Was not able to get free time at work to buy them. Even with 7 tabs open on Wednesday I wasn't able to get tickets. I think scalpers should have their accounts perma banned.

    Don't worry, you can get them for triple the price, it's totally not scummy to resell tickets on ebay /s

    Blizzard raised prizes on their WoW stuff by 25%. So, why shouldn't people earn money with Blizzcon tickets? It's a market where you can earn money.

    Because it's illegal in the state of california:

    A Under California Penal Code Section 346, a misdemeanor can be filed if:

    • Someone sells a ticket for admission to an event without the written permission of the owner or operator of the property where the event is taking place.

    The seller obtained that ticket for resale at a price higher than face value.

    • The transaction occurs on the grounds of or inside the event location.
