    Normally i just stick to the expansion reveal ones and don't bother with the between ones unless they offer something decent. They could show of classic i guess, but all that stuff will be listed in detail here on MMO-C anyway minus a few videos maybe (but its classic we know what the content is already).

    I personally think we will be getting a Diablo reveal of some kind, I also kind of think we are going to get a surprise announcement of a new RTS.

    Since BFA would have already launched there honestly isn't much more to announce other than future content, so maybe a Queen Azshara cinematic.

    I wish I could go, I had plans to go, but I fortunately got my wife pregnant lol, and it will be due right around then, thank god for the virtual ticket and that I can watch it from the delivery room.

    Damn, 750$. So they make customers paying for their donations so they can cut down taxes. Clever move.

    I hate that so much. Scalpers are scam artists, though not the worst kind out there. They take events that people want to go to and would normally be able to afford and jack it up to insane rates. One year I spent a few hours on eBay reporting every single BlizzCon scalper ticket that was more than $100 above the normal asking price.

    I can understand making a small profit from it, or trying to get a little money for time spent if you wound up not being able to go, but when I see them at $400? $500? $1000? Fuck that.

    Congratulations on the baby , yeah few cinematic i guess but they will be released on here most likely and the content announced up PTR shortly after. I'd love to go in person one year but its so expensive flying in from the UK.

    Blizzcon probably be RTS (Remastered WC3?) , Classic WoW, and hopefully something Diablo related.

    Among the usual e sport, hearthstone, overwatch, hots content of course.

    And Future of BfA 8.1.(5) announcement or similar.

    Would it not solve the issue with scalpers if the price started high and slowly went down?

    Congrats man. If you survive watching your phone in the delivery room you truly are the luckiest guy in the world to have found such an understanding girl.

    Good thing you can watch it afterward. There is also a lot of waiting involved in waiting to poop out a baby

    They probably have some data showing sale increases from Blizzcon drawing in hype. So even if they have didly to show, they'll probably end up making the monies.

    More like they'll show 8.2 content and 3rd raid. By November we will know already about second raid on Kul Tiras (Azshara), althought I think this time (unlike Nighthold and Blackrock Foundry) they won't test it on Beta, but 8.1 (and 8.1.5) PTR to not spoil story too much.

    That's why the tickets sell out every year then yes?

    Also it's not just about announcements at all. Panels, Contests and Tournaments play a big part in the whole thing.
