I was thinking of doing it until I saw the price, too much for what it is IMO, even with the goodies...
So 2/3 valve paid for.
Should be free to subscribers (minus the rewards). That pricing is fucking disgusting they just know they can get away with it.
Blizzcon is a massive advert for their products. It's where blizzard con you into paying $40 to watch a game advert.

Well we make an event out of it with some friends watching it all the way through the night so its worth it to us. And if you invite people over that are also interested in the blizzcon you could even charge them a small amount. (We dont as i said we are watching with our friends) We will have food ready and have a great time all weekend. So i dont think its overpriced. Here it cost 30 euro to watch blizzcon. by now we would each pay that amount of money to go to the movies. (movietickets are between 11 and 16 euro here depends on lenght and if it is 3D, then the train ticket to the cinema and something to eat it can go up to 50 euro for each person to go to the movies.)
No the stream is not too much money and people need to get this "gimme gimme gimme" mentality out of their heads, preferably now. Blizzard does not "owe" you a free live stream of BlizzCon if you can't afford to go there in person. $40 is not that much money in the long run, it's like two dvds and you can go back and watch the livestream again at your leisure in case there was more than one panel happening at the same time that you wanted to watch.
To me this seems like a good deal.

Yes its too much, should be like on twitch. Free in low res, payable for high res.
twitch.tv/draahl - Watch me suck at virtually every game!
People here are obviously excited about Blizzcon or they wouldn't want to watch it anyway
Calling it "paying to be advertised to" means either you aren't interested in the stream in the first place, so it being free is irrelevant, or you just don't like paying for thing that you actually do in fact enjoy
which is understandable but not really justifiable
They should lower the price to 20$. Think thats a fair price.
If you paid this im sorry but you got scammed its ridiculous not to mention there will be uploads of this the next day. All you're doing by buying this is giving them the go ahead to charge for more stuff in the future because they know they can get away with it. Just like the store items.

Are the freeloaders a little butt hurt? That's fine.. Grow up and learn how pretty much everything in life costs money.
The $40.00 for the 2 day event combined with the goodies, it's completely reasonable and actually dirt cheap.
