At Blizzard, we believe that "Every Voice Matters." To that end, we'd like to extend an invitation to our community to join us at gamescom 2012 for round table meetings with members of the Blizzard Community team, where we'll sit down and talk about our games.
In these meetings, you'll be able to give direct feedback on certain topics, discuss these topics with us and other players, and get our views on points that matter to our community.
We're anticipating a huge demand for seats at these meetings, so unfortunately it won't be possible to accommodate everyone. Therefore, if you'd like to take part, you should apply by sending us an email in English. You can do so by clicking the link that corresponds to the meeting you'd like to attend, below. Please be sure to include the following details about yourself:
How long you've been playing our games
What you'll contribute to the discussion
If you've written game guides, run an unofficial fan site or podcast, streamed your games, or engaged in any other way with the community, please mention it! While these are not requirements to attend one of the meetings, they would definitely be a plus. We're looking to gather a diverse group for each meeting – one that reflects the diversity of the Blizzard gaming community itself.
Please apply only if you're sure you'll be able to make it to the event in Cologne, Germany. It would be a shame to see an empty seat when someone else would have loved to fill it. Please be aware that travel to and entry into gamescom are entirely your own responsibility. Information on tickets can be found on the event's official site.
