BlizzCon back for 2007!


After the success of BlizzCon 2005, there was much disappointment when everyone discovered that it wasn't meant to be an annual event, and there would be no BlizzCon 2006. Of course, I really can't blame Blizzard for skipping 2006 -- they were busy working on the Burning Crusade! But Blizzard announced today that BlizzCon is coming back for 2007. While they haven't released full event details yet, here's an outline of what you can expect:
  • Discussion panels with Blizzard developers
  • Artist and developer signings
  • Competitive and casual tournaments for players to showcase their talents
  • World of Warcraft Trading Card Game tournaments and demos
  • Costume, machinima, and character sound-alike contests with great prizes
  • Commemorative merchandise and other products based on the Blizzard franchises
  • A silent auction
  • Live orchestral performances of music from Blizzard games
And if we're very lucky, we may see the guy in the murloc suit again. Honestly, people -- how can you say no to that kind of entertainment?
