Prepare yourself, gamer. Blizzard will be throwing open the mighty gates of BlizzCon ticket sales at precisely 7pm PST on April 24th, meaning you've got a whole second to react or be left crushed.

Of course there is always another chance when the second batch becomes available 10am PST April 27th. These BlizzCon tickets go fast - super fast. They sell for $175 f you've the cash.

If you really have some cash to flash then you might pony up $500 for a charity dinner taking place before BlizzCon 2013. Only 200 tickets are on offer for this special event.

BlizzCon was cancelled last year because of the studio's workload with StarCraft and Diablo. Now they're ready to get back in the saddle and play host to swarms of zerglings fans. Many are anxious to see if Blizzard will reveal anything about their big open secret Project Titan, which is the studio's next MMO.

"Tickets for BlizzCon 2013 will go on sale in two batches on Thursday, April 25 at 04:00 CEST and Saturday, April 27 at 19:00 CEST through the official BlizzCon website. In addition, a limited number of tickets to an exclusive pre-BlizzCon Benefit Dinner will go on sale Thursday, May 2 at 04:00 CEST," informs the official website.

BlizzCon 2013 takes place November 8-9 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA.

Rather have a ticket to a Relic conference, an Indie Developer's Conference...Hell, even a tour of a Capcom Funpark would be better than Bluffcon, the 'con' part of it being true in every sense.

I wouldn't mind have a chance to attend that... in fact any of these major events seem like something amazing. In South Africa, we've got rAge, but it is not nearly as major and extreme as something like QuakeCon or BlizzCon.

I would love to go to that. In fact taking off the hours for those two days to even try to get tickets (27th is my bday so getting the tickets would be awesome)

What do they have to offer at the conference, aside from ramming "WoW", "Starcraft" and "Diablo III" down your throat, with glamorous models showing pretty pictures? We all know what their games are, what plans they have (if any) and I certainly don't need to hear how good a game is, when I know it's not.

About the only thing I'd go for is to get my "Starcraft II" account back, thieving bastards.

You should try phoning them about your problem because they can't keep your paid account from you.

They want photocopies/photos of my serial number and receipt, whcih naturally I no longer have. As I say, they are thieving bastards.
Besides, do you know how a phone call from here would cost me?

There is suppose to be a toll-free number that you can phone. I had to do something like that when I was in Bulgaria, using Skype, when they banned my Diablo III account without telling me why.

Yeah, I agree, how can you have all of those details. I mean the game should be saved on your account, and that why they can see that you did purchase the game.
