    "Blizzcon is our way of saying THANKS to the community?"

    This is all I could think of

    You do realize that they lose profit from doing Blizzcon right? They don't make money from it.

    They've actually said in the past that they do not make a profit off blizzcon - they don't fit *that* many people in the venue, and the setup is massively expensive. Many tournaments and esports venues and producers have in the past said repeatedly that they don't make a profit off conventions or tournaments. Pretty sure all the people who paid to be there are appreciative.

    Keep your meme bullsh^t off this website. Don't you belon on reddit or something?

    Also, as the poster above me said, Blizzcon is a drop in profits. They don't need to do this, just a regular press announcement for the new expansion is enough.

    Well, I'd add something but it looks like you guys already destroyed the OP's argument. Well done.

    Oh yeah... because they are making SO much money from blizzcon right?

    FALSE!

    Take your blizzard hate somewhere else please.

    All I see here LEAVE MY BLIZZCON ALONE!!!

    As others have said. They've stated from many years ago they aren't raking in the $ from Blizzcon. More importantly the players are way more excited to have Blizzcon than to not have it.

    Anyone being negative about it is just an insecure person.

    You don't have to pay anything if you don't want to.

    People complaining about having to pay $40 for a whole weekend of great stream content. Yeah, alright.

    The way it is worded makes it sound like Blizzcon is a gift.
