    2+2=4 not chair.




    Very Spot on! About what I was thinking as well.
    I will remember this post and see who is lol ing. All these "thats way too long" posts occurred at the end of wrath too. They are owned by Activision. If you think they are going to release this product at the end of the summer which is just about the worst time to try and sell a video game to people you are mistaken. Unless they can release it at the same time as GW2 to try and crush that launch they will bite the bullet and make more money around the holidays selling xpacs. The diehards and season passers dont quit playing and paying for this game anyway. Its these people that allow blizzard to do this.

    Why do people assume Blizzard is just canceling it for shits and giggles? They love Blizzcon. But they have a heavy plate this year. Three big projects still in development. They can't really take focus off that and prepare for Blizzcon. Everyone should be focusing on their projects, not a convention.

    Yeah, the only thing I do recall is that it's not based on any existing franchises. They've done fantasy with WoW, so sci-fi is the other general option. Although steampunk/gaslamp fantasy would be interesting. I highly doubt it would be anything "real world" like wild west or military - we expect more from Blizzard than that.

    Given that just about everyone who works for Blizzard also works Blizzcon, and with 3 major titles hitting, I don't blame them for not having one this year. Like most have said, MoP might not have even had a content patch yet, and having Blizzcon would push back work on that as well. While announcing things at Blizzcon is nice, a lot of us would probably much rather things were already in development - and perhaps ready for alpha/beta - by the time they're announced. That gives us demos to play at Blizzcon that aren't the same stuff we've already been doing. With MoP/D3/SC2 out - what incentive is there for me to go? No new demos - other than Pandaria itself, but I'll have been playing the beta already. I'll have D3 as well due to Annual Pass, so no need to demo that either. I've never been a big RTS fan, so SC2 would be the only thing I might be interested in. No reason to go. Although I will miss meeting up with some of my fellow raiders, that's not quite enough of a reason for all of us to fly to California (since quite a few already live in SoCal).

    I have to agree here, its not THAT exciting to watch a bunch of Koreans/Japanese people playing StarCraft 2 >.>

    Or to watch a bunch of nerds raging because they couldn't kill a shaman....

    I AM NOT OK WITH THIS... /sadface

    It comes down to the fact that they wont really have anything to show at blizzcon 2012.

  8. #248
    No.

    Nononononoonono.

    I enjoy a large scale SC2 tournament now and again but WHY. THE HELL. ARE THEY. STILL!!!! FORCING. WOW. AS. AN. E-SPORT !?!?!?!?!?

    You can't balance an MMO! Arena has always been a joke and their sloppy attempts to 'balance' WoW by forcefully homogenizing the classes has done nothing but negatively impact the game!

    A real bummer. As sad as it sounds, Blizzcon virtual ticket was one of the highlights of my year last year. Hopefully they change thier minds.

    Much more to show in 2013.. probably early 2013. I'm sure it will be worth the little extra wait just to see Titan.

    Blizzard Entertainment is proud to announce the 2012 Battle.net World Championship, a major global eSports event featuring some of the best pro-gaming competition in the world. Slated to take place in Asia toward the end of 2012, Mists of Pandaria (Pandas)? Asia? Coincidence?

    Hardly anyone is freaking out. Get a grip.

    So they miss a year, it makes perfect sense with the releases coming.

    oh people seeing evil consiracies in every little thing blizzard does! how new and original, i feel like it isnt still year 2007 where people bitched about the same crap and still were proven wrong! geez, why cant blizzard be small and widely underestimated again... i hate to read the same old all negative responses on every breath blizzard takes.. nitpicking everything... are your lifes so miserable that you have to bash on somebody to feel better? im sad that there wont be a blizzcon this year, but they really have planned to release 3 titles this year and that is a feat that has never happened before, so im very excited and probably wont even notice that the blizzcon is missing while im playing d3 or sc2 hots.

    I personally am happy that they focus on developing instead of this convention. They lose money for making Blizzcon anyway.
    yeah people get worked up over such small things, makes me wonder why there still here, oh that's right attention whore syndrome
    I'm gonna let 'em know that Dolemite is back on the scene! I'm gonna let 'em know that Dolemite is my name, and fuckin' up motherfuckers is my game!

    None in 2006
    None in 2012

    Then that means...

    No Blizzcon in 2018!

    Also, whilst I will miss seeing Blizzcon, I'm glad they'd rather spend their time working on their games for us.

    They guarantied enough subs with annual pass so they really dont care.

    They will probably throw 1-2 pets and mounts into store to make enough money to cover the rest. Maybe even some stats items since aparently ppl are ok with it in other games...

    I'm fairly sure that Blizzard is just aware that the world will end in December, so there is no point in hosting a Blizzcon. /conspiracy
