Breakfast Topic: Are you attempting to buy BlizzCon tickets today?

Tickets to BlizzCon 2011 are going on sale today, and if past years' sales are any indication, tickets will sell out fast -- probably in the first second. You read that right. One damn second.

That's a pretty strong testament to peoples' love for the Blizzard brand. After all, there are plenty of reasons to not want to go to BlizzCon. Tickets are more expensive than ever, costing $175 each. For many of us, lodging and airfare are even bigger expenses. And after spending what may amount to a thousand dollars or more, most our time at BlizzCon will be spent waiting in lines. Line after line after line after line.

And yet, despite all those reasons not to go, tickets will still sell out today in 1 second.

Given the long odds and high costs of attending, are you still going to be trying to get that elusive ticket (or four) to BlizzCon 2011 today? Or are you taking a pass this year?
