Blizzcon 2008: Post-Show Coverage and Highlights
Blizzard Entertainment brought its gamers a third Blizzcon in October 2008. The 2 day convention was held at Anaheim CA and lasted from Oct. 10th until the 11th. This third event drew in thousands of Blizzard enthusiasts from across the country and all over the world. Legit Reviews managed to make it to the show and this is a peak at what happened!

Blizzard also held game tournaments at this year’s Blizzcon. Competition for Warcraft III, StarCraft, and World of Warcraft 3v3 Arena took place with a top prize of $25,000 per player. The winner of the third Blizzcon StarCraft Invitational were the fantastic team from South Korea, Savior. In the Warcraft III bracket, the South Koran team of Lyn took top spot, and the World of Warcraft 3v3 Arena was taken by the European team Nihilum Plasma. Congratulations to all the competitors and winners at this years’ All Blizzcon Tournaments. The large crowds gathered to watch the competitions were very entertained by the level of skill these players brought to each of the game tournament brackets.

I wish more conventions would come to the east coast. Making the trip cross country is expensive...but for Blizzcon...well worth it. ^_^

Yeah, and east coast conference/convention/whatever would be nice, is there any actual reason they're typically held in the west?

Definitely looking forward to StarCraft II, hopefully it'll be kind to my 56k connection :|

There were not that many booth babes this year. I tried to get pictures of any babes I saw. In 2005, there were a ton, mainly due to the fact that StarCraft Ghost was a main attraction and if anyone remembers the StarCraft Ghost girl, you can understand why the babes were out in force trying to imitate. :)

Wow (no pun intended), looks like Blizzcon is gaining some traction. How does it compare to previous ones? Any more pictures of the Sapphire girl? :snakeman:
