Along with most of the Blizzard fansites
, Arena Junkies is also conducting a BlizzCon ticket giveaway
, and they want you to design your own Arena. Basically, you come up with an idea, supplement it with whatever drawings or pictures you'd like, and then submit it in their forum thread by June 5th. After that, they'll have the community choose the top three, and each of those winners will be on their way to Anaheim to visit Blizzard's big event. We bet there'll be some awesome ideas coming out of the contest by the end -- Arena players are nothing if not creative.
And in other BlizzCon news, Tokyopop has announced that they'll have a booth at the convention
(not a huge surprise -- we'll expect to see most of Blizzard's licensing partners in attendance), and they've got a lot of fun stuff planned: artist Fernando Heinz Furukawa of Warcraft Legends
and Starcraft: Ghost Academy
will be there and drawing pictures for attendees, and there'll be various art on display and new books to be sold. Plus, they'll have a Blood Elf standup for pictures, and they even leak a little something about fellow exhibitor BradyGames
: this year they'll be hosting a convention-wide "fishing quest." Sounds like fun.
If you don't have tickets yet, you have one more chance: they go on sale this
Sunday, May 31st. Seriously, don't show up until then.
(Ed: Schramm, stop trying to keep people out of your ticket line! The second round of ticket sales is this Saturday, May 30th. Good luck to everyone except Schramm.)
