The Queue: I'm back

Alex Ziebart

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Alex Ziebart will be your host today.

Phew, today's my first day back after my vacation last week. I didn't miss anything important, right?

... Right?

@crikit310 asked:

Any guesses on when we'll have a shot at buying BlizzCon tickets?

For a late October BlizzCon, tickets usually went on sale late May, early June. I would still expect it to happen around then despite BlizzCon being early November.

Tengsten asked:

Will WoW Insider be covering HearthStone when it launches or do we need to find a new site for that?

Right now our intent is to cover Hearthstone as if it were an extension of World of Warcraft. However, we're going to scale our coverage to our audience's interest -- if it turns out nobody really wants to read about Hearthstone here, we'll scale it down. If it's super popular, we'll find ways to provide more of it without diluting our WoW content too much.

instamat asked:

Why do the Zandalari on the Isle of Thunder have such good posture?

Ergonomic chairs at their day job.

@kraiklockheart asked:

we gonna be getting anymore hero portraits in HeartStone upon release?

We don't know what the game will look like upon release yet, but I'd be shocked if they didn't add new heroes on a regular basis. CCGs are built with growth in mind -- the developers will continue adding to the game for as long as people are playing it.

Otto asked:

So since the Argent Crusade is all in the northern part of the EK, if Tirion declared them sovereign and himself king, would that make him King of the North?

While your A Song of Ice and Fire reference is admirable, no. It wouldn't make him King of the North. It would make him Sylvanas's next victim.

Besides, Tirion is a Lannister. Starks only.

@matthewjburt asked:

if you could spend a day with anyone from Azeroth, living or dead, who and why?

Probably Jaina Proudmoore, because even now that she's gone super saiyan, she doesn't strike me as someone who would try to kill me on a whim like nearly everybody else does. She's pretty cool and I imagine conversation with Jaina is far from boring. Besides, I'll be perfectly honest here -- I could listen to Laura Bailey talk forever.
