Yea, the title sucks, but who cares? Just thrown out there was the dates and details on trying to get your hands on some of those coveted Blizzcon passes that will most likely get snagged up in a matter of minutes again. But here is a good 11 day warning to get ready for the internet to crash due to all the Blizzard fans from trying to log on at the same time. But this time around, there is a little extra for those of you who can't get passes. Not talking the ability to watching on Pay Per View either.
They are going to do the Direct TV thing again, but this time they will hook up those that don't have that service. Hook up how? Well via and online stream. This way no one has an excuse for not being able to enjoy all the highlights and show offs from this year's show. Not too bad since last year so many missed out either by not getting passes or having Direct TV. Blizzard always looking out for their fans.
Be ready to log on and try for those tickets on the 16th.
