1 BlizzCon Tickets: Batch 2 on sale today!

How’d you go getting BlizzCon tickets on Wednesday? I’ve heard stories of people getting in the queue the moment it opened and still missing out on the US$150 gems.

BlizzCon Tickets

Want one?

If you tried and failed, or didn’t bother trying but now think you’ll give it a shot – you’ve got a second chance for glory! The second batch of tickets for the October event will be on sale on Saturday June 5th, 10am Pacific time – that’s in just two hours from now!

When the clock strikes 10, point your browser towards the ticket sales page (http://us.blizzard.com/store/blizzcon-tickets.xml) and hope your twitch reflexes are up to scratch.

Might be a nice idea too, if you read up on Blizzard‘s handy tips for ticket-buying (they’re a bit more complex than just “make sure you have money”). They were originally published with the first batch of tickets, but they’re just as relevant today.

The event – a celebration of all things Blizzard, featuring Diablo, StarCraft and of course World of Warcraft – will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center in California on October 22 and 23.

If you miss out (again), or can’t get to the US West Coast for those dates, rest assured there is in-depth coverage of this year’s BlizzCon, offered by DIRECTV as a pay-per-view event, which you can watch either via satellite or the multi-channel internet stream. We’ll keep you posted about how you can sign up!
