3,000 more Blizzcon tickets coming via lottery

| August 14, 2008 | 2 Replies

After the problems Blizzard had with their ticketing system, Blizzard President Mike Morhaime personally apologized for the problems with their web site and said that Blizzard will be offering up 3,000 more Blizzcon tickets by reevaluating their floor space at the convention hall. The tickets will be offered up via lottery to players that had a working Blizzard account as of the time the tickets became sold out (August 12, 2008, 9PM PST).

There are a lot of good people that didn’t get tickets and I’m not keen on lottery systems, but I think that this is an excellent move on Blizzard’s part. I hope that some of the people in my guild that didn’t get tickets can get a ticket now. I also know of people that made travel plans with the assumption from previous Blizzcons that tickets wouldn’t be this hard to get. I hope they get in also.

    I am unable to attend this event, even though I would love to be there. I find it great on Blizzard’s behalf that they at least recognized and heard the many loyal people who had an issue about getting tickets for the convention. It is nice that they at least are attempting to make ammends.

    Too many questions, though, IMO. Who doesn’t get into the lottery (other than new accounts), how many tickets got sold en mass to scalpers, can you buy more than one or two tickets for family or friends, how do the people who made plans and spent money all ready in good faith deal with this, etc…?

    Just a bad, bad situation here.
