Watch what you wish for…

Watch what you wish for…. you just might get it.  Well only hours after I posted my rant about wanting to know about the Blizzcon Tix Lottery, an announcement just appeared on the Blizzcon site.  So I want to give Blizz their props for today.  I guess a lot of people had the same worries as me and they seem to have worked out the fairest method possible.

The best news I heard was in item #3 of the requirements:  “(3) have not previously purchased BlizzCon 2008 tickets”.  I mean seriously if you already got a few tix, give the rest of us fans a chance.  They are also going to make the opt-in period over several days so we don’t have to do a ‘first come-first serve’ F5 Frenzy.  Once you’re entered into the lottery you wait feverishly for an email.  The email will give you instructions to actually purchase the tickets.  1,500 accounts will be chosen to distribute the 3,000 tickets.  Although I did see some forum posts with people wanting one ticket.  I guess if you enter, you know ahead of time that you have to take the two tickets.  I’m glad to see this update… change that.  I’m very excited to see this update.  It lets me know they’re working out the wrinkles and that they are working hard to keep all of us fanboys and fangirls happy.  I know it must be difficult with all the opportunists out there.  So we still have to watch the web site but it’s not a sprint to the finish.

Whew!  I’m still worn out from my last attempt.  I think it kept me from even wanting to play.  I understand some people even cancelled or suspended their accounts.  For more details, check out their site: www.blizzcon.com.  The opt-in will be accessible through your Blizzard Account Management.
