On Thursday, October 21, Blizzard will be hosting a special dinner to benefit the CHOC Children's Foundation, where guests will have an opportunity to meet and chat with game developers, artists, executives and other folks from Blizzard Entertainment.

From July 13 through July 15, we'll be holding an online drawing to determine who can win an opportunity to purchase tickets to this event. A total of 200 tickets will be available for $500 USD each (limit two per person), and the proceeds will benefit the CHOC Children's Foundation. In appreciation of your donation, you'll receive:

  • Dinner and an opportunity to converse with executives, artists, developers, community managers, and others from Blizzard Entertainment
  • A signed print featuring Blizzard Entertainment artwork
  • One BlizzCon 2010 ticket (a $150 USD value)

The BlizzCon 2010 benefit dinner will take place Thursday, October 21 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Hilton Anaheim hotel. To opt in to the ticket drawing and view the official rules for this opportunity, visit the official BlizzCon website between July 13 and July 15. [/blizzquote]

    Man, I'd love to go to that dinner. But I'd need lots of money, and a ticket to the US.

    So much for opening it on time with the eu servers.

    EDIT: shame the vid is not in hd otherwise it would off been better to watch
    It is in HD. HD takes a bit longer to convert so it might not have showed up when you watched it, but it is now available in full 1080

    Meh. I have no interest in this world first. One-boss raids are lame, especially when the hardest version of them is downed within hours.

    I'm not one to complain about content, and I don't really care if a raid is easy or hard, but the whole place cleared in a couple of hours? And it's the last hurrah in WotLK? Really?

    I'd imagine they'll see a large drop-off in subscriptions after this. No, it's not going to be significant enough to greatly harm them, but still. Will most of these people come back for Cataclysm? Yeah, of course, but it seems like they could have kept getting their $15 from those 100k people for a couple extra months if they made this a little more difficult, or made it a two-boss raid, with the last being Algalon-esque, only available after beating hard mode.

    Its called a charity. I cant imagine what you would do when you heard about the political fund-raising dinners when they cost several thousand dollars (USD) per plate, and you dont get anything in return. And it all goes to get some scumbag politician elected.

    i saw a lot of you EU guys on the US forums last night saying " OMG all the guys in the USA are such cry babies because they have a 24 hour maintenance...you guys should man up and wait it out since the EU is going to get the WF anyway"

    now..i probably see the same EU guys crying on these forums because the US got a WF!

    It's $500 USD for food at a fancy hotel, charity, a BlizzCon ticket (value @ $150 USD), a signed print of Blizzard artwork and not to forget: A chance to talk with the developers over at Blizzard.

    Many people would kill for a chance like that.

    lol bro... u fail... and im not smart?

    wow is dying.. face it... and RS is prove of it... HM downed in what... less then 10 hours?

    Pleasing as much as possible? With allr over 80 % of the player base not content, even if servers are still offline?

    Making millions of dollars... ye, im sure they did that once.. and maybe still now, by milking this game to the max with

    all these stupid pets / mounts / char possibilities. As said, wow is dying... milking it to the next big MMO

    So ye... blizz, u fail... or do i actualy fail for still paying ur sorry ass for extended maintenances and shitty new content.

    Is this realy the best you can come up with....
