For what I could see on the homepage for Blizzcon, Chris Metzen won't participate in any of the World of Warcraft panels. Any ideas why?
He probably has a lot of responsibilities backstage with media, etc.
Who knows? Judging from the way people talk about him around here, he's not the most beloved of Blizzard representatives. Maybe he just doesn't want the fallout.
Or he can go wherever he wants?
upd. what? everybody loves him, He is goddamn Thrall.
And he´s more of a boss, better to have the people that actually work on the things, like the dungeon team and stuff since they can explain and answer quiestions better.
I found his name in atleast two panels:
Friday: World of Warcraft: The Adventure Continues
Saturday: Warcraft Movie Presentation
He might be doing it, but keeping his schedule loose. Maybe he is just tired of doing them after a few years of being a key speaker. He could be giving some other people a chance to get out there and engage the fans and step into the spotlight for a bit. Maybe this year he is taking on more of the logistical stuff there or nothing at all. I wouldn't read too much into why he is or isn't doing things.

Because if it is time travel, he's gonna let Kosick and Co take the crap for it.
You don't doubt a god. He is above criticism.
He'll be doing the opening announcement and is on the Lore Q&A and the Movie Panel.
He's probably stretched quit now and feels more comfortable focusing on answering questions for just one franchise this time around, since there are others equally qualified to talk about the SC and Diablo universes.
Three appearances is still quite a lot.

If I say it's Azshara next enough times, eventually I'll be right. So here we go again. It's got to be Azshara next, so get ready for the Sylvanas expansion we inevitably get instead!
After he got owned by the red shirt guy he gave up.
Aww. I wanted another GEEK IS...
