Didn't Get Your BlizzCon Tickets? Join the Lottery!

Postby Lavarinth » Thu Aug 14, 2008 5:15 pm

A recent  statement by Mike Morhaime of Blizzard has updated us with the current ticket situation relating to BlizzCon and it's status:

Blizzard Gamers,

On behalf of everyone at Blizzard, I want to apologize for the challenges and frustrations you experienced while trying to purchase BlizzCon tickets on Monday and Tuesday. BlizzCon is about the positive experiences you all have had with Blizzard games. As a result of this week's events, the excitement that many of you felt about the show has turned into dissatisfaction and disappointment.

Due to these circumstances, we've reevaluated our convention hall space and come up with some solutions that will allow us to offer 3,000 more tickets for sale. We know this will not be enough to satisfy the very high level of demand for tickets this year, but we want to ensure that BlizzCon remains a great experience for those of you who are able to attend. To avoid the issues many of you faced this week, we'll be selling these 3,000 via a lottery. We'll post further details once our plans are finalized. Please note that the lottery will only be open to those with an active Blizzard Account as of 9:00 PM PDT on August 12, the time that the "Sold Out" notice was posted.

I, and everyone else at Blizzard, share the frustration and disappointment that many of you have expressed as a result of this process. We'll do what it takes to avoid this type of situation in the future.

Sincerely,
Mike Morhaime


To those of you who were unable to secure your tickets for BlizzCon, prepare to keep yourself updated for more information on the upcoming BlizzCon Ticket Lottery.

You may lower your odds by .00001% by posting this.  Although actually, by posting this, if just one person signs up because of that post, it changes the entire outcome of the lottery.

Eh, it's alright- It's news. I'm hoping I get lucky anyway.

By posting it, he also increased the chance that a CCer might get a ticket, which in turn increases the chance we get some exclusive looks right here on the forum, if not by Lavvz himself. :)
