I guess they are too busy with pandas and pokemons
They really must be working on those 3 games for this thing to happen'.
but the world is ending in dec 2012 and i wanted to go to blizzcon this year because i never went to one, what am i gonna do?
Also to people thinking "No Blizzcon" means D3, MoP and SCII-2 will be out by october ! Stop dreaming and lying to yourselves !
Only game that will be released by that time if they don't change the game mechanics again will be D3. MoP will be late november, SC2-2 will be december or 2013.
The only reason they post-poned it is because they are not early but they are late in development for those games and they want to gain every day they can.
They would have had nothing to talk about at Blizzcon 2012. Are you kidding me ?
They could have talked about 5.1, the next patch content of MoP, they could have talked about the next D3 expansion. They could have talked about SCII-3 with the protoss.
They could have had some wallpapers made in Paint and a Powerpoint mess with Titan and still it would have been big.
They are losing money with Blizzcon. No!
The only money they are losing is in development time. All those high charged tickets and sponsors at Blizzcon and the publicity and PR pays for Blizzcon.

It's alright, nobody missed the 2006 Blizzcon either. I know I didn't. Back then they were awful. Imagine vanilla WoW awful. They didn't have the streaming option, you had to actually fly out there, and ffs nerds everywhere. It was an expense in both money and nasal exposure. But I do quote: "I look forward to Blizzcon every year." Which CEO of Blizzard says this in his opening speech every single year? Queue the Jeopardy music. Apparently not this year. I'm pretty sure he'll cry himself to sleep at night this year on his mattress full of money and weep into his pillow stuffed with cash that it just isn't fair we have no Blizzcon this year... since he looks forward to it every year. Maybe this next year he'll look forward to seeing Blizzard's stock get some acceleration since it's been sucking hind tit for a bit. Personally, I'll miss Blizzcon. I like watching Metzen nerd it up. I like watching the costumes. Jay Mohr won't get a paycheck this year. In reality, I doubt I would have bought the thing anyhow. D3 will be released this year and I don't think I care to collect another WoW pet since that sub is going BYEBYE once D3 is installed.
ohwell, im looking forward to the Arenanetcon 2013 anyway.
good decision imo, blizzcon is/was a hype event in my eyes always not much point hosting it just for the sake of hype
week old mmo report? lol? Makes them pushing back the 1.1 update BY ONE DAY seem dramatic when you use a week old mmo report.
Hmmm...the fanart seems a bit lacking lately...like some of the proportions and perspectives aren't right, but it's not like I could do any better.
Nerdrage-15 Minute Cooldown. You enter a berserker rage, increasing typing speed by 75%, chance to hit CAPS LOCK by 50% and decreasing chance to get laid by 100%. You feel no pity or remorse and can not be stopped unless banned.
Finally realized they need to stop fannying around and pull their finger out? One can only hope...
Blizz still nerfs DS, wowhead says that buff can go up to 35%, that's 7 months for you ( I know Bashiok said could not be necessary but still)
2.Anual Pass ends november ...
3. MoP ain't even in beta
4. We talking about Soon™ Blizzard here.
Except not really. this whole Battle.net world championship is because Wow was removed from the main E-sports circut.Originally Posted by Blizzard Entertainment
so they sacrificed Blizzcon to host some E-sports thing because they cant keep their own game balanced.
Team Liquid posted an interview with Ilja Rotelli, Blizzards Global Director of Community & eSports where he reveals the basic structure of how the championship is going to be run. While they only mention SC2 I would imagine they will be using a similar format for WoW.
First Glimpse: 2012 Battle.Net World Championship.
Personally while I'm a bit bummed about no Blizzcon I'm quite excited for the SC2 part of the turnament.
