I was a speaker at Blizzcon 2005 and it was a killer show... If you play WoW and can afford to attend I highly suggest it!

I love blizzard and all... diablo2 was awesome, and I played starcraft for years... but I think they are putting too much into WoW. SC: Ghost got scrapped, and there is nothing that I know of currently planned. I never got into WoW because of the fanbase. That, and I don't want it to turn into a job... (gotta find that epic sword!!!!!)

Anyway, that being said... I wouldn't go to blizzcon even if I were on the west coast. WoW is just too much for me.
