BlizzCon 2010: The first in the line, at 2 a.m.


If you have been to BlizzCon before, you'll know that one of the most epic things about the meetup isn't the panels or seeing Ghostcrawler tell a crowd of angry paladins, "Don't nerf me, bro!" Nay, the most epic thing about BlizzCon is the lines. Lines that wrap around the Anaheim Convention Center, lines that you wait in for hours, lines that let you meet hot night elf girls.

Today, the WoW Insider crew ventured down to grab some Starbucks at the hotel near the convention center and we ran into the first people in line. What time did they get there, you ask?

Meet Lucas, Kerry, and Wesley. They arrived and were sitting in line at 2:00 a.m. Thursday morning. For this epic feat, not only do they get their own post at WoW Insider, but also the distinctive honor of being the first to get their passes to BlizzCon 2010 and the first with their goodie bags.

For those who are about to go wait in this epic line, it's already started and is getting larger. Blizzard staffers have been going around stamping barcode printouts, prechecking people in for faster passage through the line. It seems that Blizzard's staff has taken advantage of the knowledge they've gained from previous years and are making the process faster.

BlizzCon 2010 is upon us! WoW Insider has all the latest news and information. We're bringing you liveblogging of the WoW panels, interviews with WoW celebrities and attendees and of course, lots of pictures of people in costumes. It's all here at WoW Insider!
