Blizzard announces new ticket sales for Paris Event

Thursday, May 29th, 2008

Ok peeps, last shot. Here we go again with what surely will be one hell storm of ticket sales again. Blizz announced earlier this week that they’ve got a whole new block of tickets up for grabs for the Paris event.

Tickets go on sale at 15:00 Central European Time (remember, we’re +6 hours ahead of the East Coast of the US) today. In addition to securing your slot at what’s looking like one helluva good show, Blizz also dropped it like it’s hot and announced the live performance schedule. The live and in person video game orchestra, Video Games Live will be dishing out some of your favorite in game tunes, while Blizzard’s own in-house band, Level 70 Elite Tauren Chieftain will be performing live at the closing ceremony. On a side note….will they have to change the name of the band in November (my personal prediction for the Lich King release)?

As mentioned in a previous post, the Blizzard Worldwide Invitational is one spicy meatball going down in Paris on the 28th and 29th of June. Both days are jam packed with all kinds of wicked cool stuff to do and see, including hands on play of the newest stuff Blizz has got in the labs i.e. yes, you’ll get to see the Death Knight and Lich King far before anyone else. In addition, Blizz is hosting a whole round of developer discussions, presentations, and casual (read…I’m gonna pwnd ur @$$ n00b!) tournaments, contents, and much, much more…!

Les Ticket ain’t exactly cheap weighing in at 70 € / £55 for the 2 day event, but then again, where ELSE in the world are you going to get a sneak peak at the Wrath of the Lich King AND Starcraft II?

Again, ticket sales start today at 15:00 CET. Have your credit and/or debit card ready, hit the F5 button on at 3, and hopefully…..we’ll see you there!


Blizzard Worldwide Invitational – Sold out in 6 days!

Sunday, May 4th, 2008

Holy smoke: tickets to WWI are/were hotter than hotcakes! It seems as though Blizzard underestimated the response from gamers around the world by selling out entry to Hall 5 of the Porte de Versailles Exposition Center in less than a week.

To add a bit of insult to injury, it seems as though there was a problem with the ordering system whereby users were receiving an incorrect message of “Limit of 3 Payment Attempts Reached“. D’OH!

For those that didn’t get a ticket: let’s just pray to A’dal that the event management staff is busily trying to book Hall 4 or Hall 6, as the FAQ for the event reads: Tickets are limited and will go on sale in the next few weeks on a first-come, first-served basis until they are sold out, though Blizzard Entertainment reserves the right to sell additional tickets in the future.

Should Blizzard release more tickets, we’ll be sure to update on the fly.
