BlizzCon 2011 Announced, Details Thin

February 7, 2011 -

Blizzard Entertainment announced some of the things fans can expect from the sixth annual BlizzCon gaming convention, this year taking place at the Anaheim Convention Centre in Anaheim, California October 21 - 22.

This year's event dedicated to all things Blizzard (StarCraft, Warcraft, and World of Warcraft) promises hands-on play time with the latest Blizzard games (we assume that means players will get to try out Diablo III, the latest chapter in the StarCraft II series, and any new WOW stuff Blizzard has planned), casual and competitive tournaments for players of all skill levels, community contests with special prizes, "commemorative" merchandise based on the company's various game universes, and the usual assortment of keynotes, workshops, and discussions.

More details on the event - including ticket availability and pricing - are "to be announced" on the official Blizzard website as the event draws closer.

If you are planning to attend BlizzCon 2011, you had better be ready to buy those tickets; last year tickets for two-day event sold out the same day they became available for purchase. You can sign up for a newsletter at the official BlizzCon 2011 web site that will alert you the second they become available.

Andrew EisenAlso, how are they trying to paint Sommers in a bad light? Far as I can see, all it says is she's "a professor and critic of contemporary feminism."05/04/2015 - 2:19pm
Andrew EisenIanC - I assume you're referring to Kotaku's report on the bomb threat. What comments are being censored? Any evidence? Not saying it didn't happen. I certainly censored yours, and for damn good reason.05/04/2015 - 2:18pm
Andrew EisenIf there's a story we're not covering that any of you think we should, please feel free to submit it as news.05/04/2015 - 1:48pm
Andrew EisenIanC - I deleted your comment. Such disgusting and libelous crap is not welcome here. Do it again and I'll ban you. This is the only warning you get.05/04/2015 - 1:46pm
IanCOh and GG has not been "dormant" its just that this site can't be bothered to report it. Im surprised they even reported the bomb threat. Threats against both sides are wrong, regardless of who is doing it.05/04/2015 - 1:44pm
IanCOh and Conster thats just sick. I like how its "i hate this group, lets pretend that they are doing something even worse". Thats just wrong.05/04/2015 - 1:41pm
IanCKotaku have been censoring comments on that article. They also tried to paint Christina Sommers in a bad light, just because she isn't the type of feminist that they agree with.05/04/2015 - 1:39pm
E. Zachary KnightConster, I think that might be a little uncalled for.05/04/2015 - 10:20am
MattsworknameConster, I vet what your saying, but lets not bring up Baltimore, that place had a very bad week.05/03/2015 - 5:48pm
MattsworknameFair enough Infophile, regardless of my own issues with the gaming industry and press, im just sorta tired of the whole GG thing as it is. it just seems pointless now you know?05/03/2015 - 5:46pm
ConsterThe trolls hiding behind GG may be too busy pretending to be looters in Baltimore right now.05/03/2015 - 3:32pm
InfophileWhich is to say, GG isn't people writing articles about GG; it's the swarm of people lashing out. That's still going on, even if not as many articles are being written about it05/03/2015 - 7:32am
InfophileIt's not about the articles, but about the people receiving threats. Found an article from just last week which says Zoe Quinn is still receiving daily threats: http://www.bostonmagazine.com/news/article/2015/04/28/gamergate/05/03/2015 - 7:31am
Mattsworknameup hating the game industry on a more general level .05/03/2015 - 7:25am
MattsworknameIts funny, you know what i just realized, I love video games, and I hate the industry that has been forged around them. I hate the big name publishers, the press, all that jazz. But I still love gaming. that kinda sucks that I love games and still wind05/03/2015 - 7:25am
MattsworknameIt's like teh whole thing just went quiet.05/03/2015 - 6:28am
MattsworknameInfophile, I haven't really seen much activity either way, other then a few minor articles here or there, its like GG just sorta went dormant. I dont deny that I have some concerns with gaming press and industry, but I followed GG the last few months05/03/2015 - 6:28am
Infophile@Mattsworkname: It's more of a case that many media outlets have lost interest in their usual actions. "GamerGate still viciously harassing Zoe Quinn" isn't exactly news. Even if they are. *puts on sea lion hunting gear* Come at me, GG! I dare ya!05/03/2015 - 4:40am
MattsworknameAs much a I have some of the same concerns GG supposibly crusades against, i was really under the impression GG had sorta gone into dormantcy , it had been kinda quiet the last feww months05/02/2015 - 7:42pm
