BlizzCon

Drew bought BlizzCon tickets and it took us way too long to realise they actually have a TV app for apple and chrome.  Don’t make our mistake next year by fluffing about for hours to get the laptop connected and everything running only to discover you could have just downloaded an app 🙂  I was still recovering from sickness and so I couldn’t handle the thought of doing anything else but vegetating for the weekend.  Drew also bought me a Whomper pet!! Such adorableness for a good cause. LOOOOOK!!!

Watching the panels with the voices behind the characters and the artists is one of the main reasons I watch BlizzCon.  It is so amazing to hear them and this year Laura Bailey actually sang the Warbringer song live. It was so freaking amazing. I cried.  I ACTUALLY CRIED!!  <3 Laura Bailey.

Every time I watch the artists I wish I had the abilities, skill and creative understanding they had.  So normally I comment something along the lines of ” Man, I wish I could do that!!”, Drew generally rolls his eyes and then says, “Have you done any practise? How many days have you drawn, photographed etc this week?” and I generally hang my head in shame.  I always forget that people have to make effort to get good at something, I like to  just think people are born with those skills and that is simply not true. They practise and they practise and they keep practising every single day until they can create these things of beauty.  I need my motivation to be better.

Things I have taken away from BlizzCon this year:

  • Flying is long enough way I can probably get my reputations completed by then.
  • The new updated graphics on Arathi Basin make me wistful for the hours we spent in there just having a laugh with friends. I miss it and I can’t wait to see update.
  • New raid is coming after the new year which should hopefully give me time to get the current heroics completed with the guild.
  • Kultiran Druid forms are the bomb and I want to run alliance druids now.
  • Timewalking to Drainer – no thank you. That place was bad enough once, I won’t willingly go back there to experience it – unless the gear we get is a legendary piece.
  • The new cinematic with Saurfang and Anduin was amazing. I can’t wait to see what story that leads into. A third faction? Some sort of choice? The end of Sylvanas’ reign?
  • New Overwatch character Ashe looks like fun.
  • I want to play more Overwatch and HoTS (still) – I really enjoy both games but I don’t enjoy playing with horrible people because I am terrible.
  • I really want to invest some time in doing something creative in my life – voice acting, drawing, photography…I am not sure…but something. I want to create things.
  • Classic is going to be a mindbender and I can’t wait to play with Drew’s demo access.

I still have a few panels I want to watch so will try and get through them this week, but I am pretty happy with the stuff I was seeing overall.

Some cool things though, Mike M showed up at the start like always 🙂 It was a nice touch to send us off into the future with one last goodbye and then Chris M turned up and asked a question in the Q & A.  It was epic!  So epic! He asked when the real warchief would return – we are all wondering the same thing.

What about you? What bits are you most excited for in the future?

No Blizzcon this year eh?

I am going to put myself in the group of “meh”.

I love Blizzcon and I do enjoy my live stream and all the other stuff that goes on, I have always found it enjoyable, however I am outgoing to lose sleep over something like that.

They will have more again and if it means we can actually have MoP out faster I am all for it…well sort of…I am in no hurry for mop – we are still trying to clear DS…hell we are only on 5/8 and we don’t look like we will be getting through it anytime soon.

I don’t really get into the whole egame thing, so it is going to be a quiet year for me on the Blizzcon front….

I am sure every single WoW blogger out there is probably madly typing up posts with images and more detail than I am, but I wanted to write down my thoughts and feelings whilst they were still fresh 🙂

This is now my fourth Blizzcon via virtual ticket and once again I was happily surprised with information, I tried as much as possible leading up to Blizzcon to avoid any wow sites for fear of leakage and I didn’t want to know beforehand – which I later found out there wasn’t much this year leaked anyway.

Blizzcon and all that jazz

Have been a little slack lately with the updates I know!!

I spent all weekend watching Blizzcon and was a little disappointed to be honest. We didn’t really get any new information and very little about Cataclysm…would have been nice for those of us not in the Beta to have some information about the things currently happening (in my personal opinion – others will no doubt disagree).

The costume comp must have been rigged, the 5 crappy outfits made it finals…no offence if you were one of them..but compared to the Twin Valks (the second ones), the first spirit healer, professor putricide and rotface, the group of three playing wisp, spirit healer and dead pally and the three as Arthas and his chronies, the chick in all white for spacecraft, the engineer from spacecraft, the moonkin…..just some relaly creative ones this year which didn’t seem to even get a mention….oh well….

That isn’t to say we didn’t get a lot of information or interesting thinsg from Blizzcon, it was awesome….I didn’t see the closing ceremony as the live feed shat itself and would not play.

The feed this year was awful!!  We spent more time trying to get the damn thing to play than actually watching it.  Many complaints on twitter about it as well.

I did learn some valuable things about some of my classes, ie ways they intended for things to be used/played..so that has helped in the last few days.

Now onto decision making for the guild and deciding what we are doing, where we are going etc then to start getting it happening 😀

What did others think?

BLIZZCON!!!!!

Just ordered my virtual Blizzcon ticket!!!!

GOing to try and work out of we can strea, the feed direct to the TV via the Xbox 360 – and if we can’t do that we may just plug the computer into the TV and do it that way 😀 

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
