    So, they couldn't figure out how to make more money out of it with no content to offer?

    Vastly different. Now throw in security, event staff, parking, vendors, staging, custom signage, all of the computers for demos, lighting, sound, video, insurance, and everything else.

    Millions. Not sorry you didn't get your expected mic drop moment you were expecting. Buy hey, you tried.

On the back of many bottles of cleaning products with anti-bacterial properties there is a message which states that this product kills coronavirus. These messages have been printed for decades. Because some time back the common cold virus was properly identified and given the name coronavirus.
    Now the Novel-Coronavirus or Covid-19 was a new variant. Mind you we don't have a vaccine for the common cold. However. If you gave everyone the common cold all at once around the world, many people would die because even a small percentage of a large number is a lot of people.
    Sadly we are born to die. There was even a show years ago called 1000 ways to die.
    We as people think that by careful planning we can minimize death. I say this is not so. Because every day we should be thankful we are alive.
    The same ways people died from Covid are the same ways people with the common cold die when complications arise. Especially with pneumonia.
    Which was much more worried about years ago back in the day people would yell at their kids to put on a coat or else they will catch pneumonia, which was a real concern. The only difference was that covid was specifically identifiable and looked for by doctors. Throw a cup of paint in a box of mice, most will get hit by a splatter, some will get it in their mouths and die.

    Bottom line. Blizzard and the rest of the world are more worried about negative publicity from -God-forbid- someone-got-covid at their event. So they caved. End of story.

    Honestly this is more or less what I've been saying all along! Bravo good sir for speaking the truth!
    I used to say if you have covid come give it to me ! Because if everything I've done in my life isn't enough for me to overcome then I'm meant to die. Which I accept. Which is why I live every day to the best I can so when that time comes I can feel minimal regrets. I'm not changing my life though because the news and media outlets are Fear-Porn mongers who live off the hysteria they create by spreading bad news. It just means more clicks for them and all they care about is advertising dollars. Wake up people!
    imagine being such an edge lord you use the "We all die anyways so why bother" line ironically, what are you 12?

    I didn’t expect one anyways. They just had blizzconline in Feb. what would they even announce to justify a convention? I just assumed this was obvious.
    Most likely the wisest Enhancement Shaman.

    1. their prices have dropped a lot during covid, its costs were a lot higher, and as time goes on it will just go higher and higher.
    2. the cost of the convetion center itself is not the only cost...

    20 $/ euro minimum. Totally worth paying for those two 3 mins cinematics about patch 9.2 and D4`s next class. ..... Pause.... NOT!

    Other than that they played with island expeditions but decided not to continue them, just like warfronts. We will see if torghast stays in shadowlands, but I'd rather they attempt new shit rather than only give us the same shit every expansion. Also much prefer this legendary system to ANY legendary system before it.
    Expansion exclusive systems were build for a reason. No new spells create WoD situation. Adding new spells every expac create problem in long run (too many abilities, every spec having same utility). Most people whining about "borrowed power" just don't get it.

    As for time gating, it's just WoW structure bouncing between grind and no grind, some patch/expac grind will return, people will enjoy there is something to do, later hate game force you to do stuff - circle of life.

    Personally I really like timegating in one case - max level and later patch campaign. It's good to have some different to do every week outside usual reset stuff.

    You know last online Blizzcon was free, right?

    So they'll announce a new WoW expansion, possibly release dates for Overwatch 2 and/or Diablo 4, and a new HS expansion.

    They also keep mentioning multiple unannounced projects, but somehow I doubt we'll hear about any of them at this event. They seem kind of far off.

    Not that I don't understand their reasoning, but while I'm always really excited for Blizzcons and was even somewhat hyped for Blizzconline this year, I feel like it fell really flat.

    You're going to need updated information - maybe directly from the ACC itself.

    https://i.imgur.com/ismARne.jpg

    So every room (5 halls, basement space North Hall [North and South halves], lobbies, the Arena space itself, arena rooms, and exterior space like the multiple plazas) for 3 days convention *PLUS* setup days (which is over a week) PLUS outside space plus security fees, admin fees, agency fees, hotel fees, transportation fees, ticket broker fees, employee fees, temp. staffing fees, etc.....

    Now that blizzard is a soulless corporate entity that just regurgitates generic feel-good "games bring us together" speeches they should probably just stop having it.
    100% agree. After watching Final Fantasy Fan Fest this year and comparing it to what Acti-Blizz has been putting out for the past few years I feel like Acti-Blizz should just stop.

    Cuz the competition does it better and blizzard sucks at doing it.

    That’s what he’s saying. That’s the “why.” Thought that was pretty obvious.

    Imagine actually believing there's some global conspiracy to mislead the entire planet of the existence of a virus they can literally experience for themselves, and lose friends/family members to, for the purposes of... uh.. forcing them to wear facemasks, I guess. Fucking big brain time right here

    Imagine that this is not a global conspiracy, but just plain stupidity, incompetence, pomposity, hypocrisy, corruption and most importantly, superficiality. All this leads to this pandemic of stupidity. Yes, in the end it is pure stupidity, nothing more.
    Will you superficial people ever understand this?
