    Blizzcon 2013

    Does anyone know the possible 2013 blizzcon dates and ticket purchase.

    From the front page of mmo-champion:

    Q4 2012 Earnings Call
    There were a few more interesting points from the Q4 2012 earnings call, other than the subscriber number drop.
    [...]

    There should be a Blizzcon 2013 announcement soon.

    Date isn't available yet, I'd say it'll be in October of this year.

    Blizz did drop that there would be an announcement coming soon(TM).
    Unsubscribed 3/10/2014 - 8/14/2014.
    "Times change."

    Beware the claims of yearly expansions. It's not more hype more often, it's paying more for less. Fewer tiers, no more new levels, no more new races/classes, but an ever-increasing price tag....

    If I had to guess, I'd say there won't be one. The momentum is gone.

    From their recently earning call, they said there would be an announcement about Blizzcon soon. I doubt they'd cancel two in a row.

    Not sure if I follow, are you saying there aren't things they could announce?

    They will almost certainly announce the next Warcraft expansion at Blizzcon 2013 - which has been confirmed by Morhaime in several places (including the earnings call).

    In the past, Blizzcon has been held on a Friday and Saturday in mid-to-late October (2005, 2008, 2010, 2011) or August (2007, 2009) at the Anaheim Convention Center. According to the Anaheim Convention Center website (http://www.anaheimconventioncenter.c...tCalendar.aspx), the only available weekend dates in October are Oct. 18th - 20th. With a conference booked on Oct. 17, it seems like they wouldn't have enough set-up time to have it in October.

    September is wide open, and the weekend of August 9-11 is available as well (Aug. 16-17 is open but a conference starts on the 18th so we can likely rule those days out). Unless they decide to hold it elsewhere (Vegas?), we're probably looking at August 9-10 or a weekend in September as Blizzcon dates.

    To elaborate: my guess is, they will announce that there is no Blizzcon 2013.

    They've already announced that there is
    If there's one thing World of Warcraft players hate more than people who don't play, it's people that do play but not as much as them.

    I'll just leave these here for you:

    http://wow.joystiq.com/2012/08/27/mi...s-on-for-2013/

    MORHAIME'S TWEET: "Happy new year everyone! Hope to see you at #blizzcon 2013."
    https://twitter.com/mikemorhaime/sta...85563067531264

    MORHAIME ON Feb. 7, 2013 EARNINGS CALL: "Lastly, I want to remind everyone that BlizzCon will make its return later this year. We'll have more details announcements soon and we're looking forward to reconnecting with our players this year to hear their thoughts, share the latest Blizzard news and share along with them at the Blizzard eSports Global Finals. We hope you'll be able to join us at the show."

    They could maybe do it somewhere else for once. Im not holding out but it would be a welcome change.

    So, September and they have to rush to book it?
    Which pet this year? Perhaps they will break the Murloc tradition, this year.

    Is that new Aeon Of Strife (DotA) mode for SC2?

    Don't care for the rest, maybe WoW tho. SC2 third expansion would be great.

    Yeah it would, but for an event so huge and involving so many employees, Anaheim is better logistically and more cost-effective.

    It's probably already booked, but they have asked the Anaheim CC to keep it under wraps.

    They only reason they didn't bother having a Blizzcon last year (beyond being "really busy") is because they didn't have anything new to announced. Mists of Pandaria had already been announce, Diablo III had just been released, and Heart of the Swarm was still quite a ways off.

    If they'd had it and not announced anything groundbreaking, people would have just complained.

    It could be - the first and second weekends in November show as being unbooked at the Anaheim CC. They have traditionally held it in either August or October, but this year could be different.

    Blizzcon is usually sep - Oct. Though they did have one in late summer, if I remember correctly.
