They should be available, at least, up to the convention. 

I'll need to check on if they are available after the event, as I don't have an answer to that for this year, but I believe you could purchase them after previously.

They're actually pretty unique, it's awesome! I know they use the engineering skeleton, but they're still awesome.

Hi! Longtime read, first time poster here!

I'm thinking of buying a VTicket. I'll  never get to Blizzcon so this is the next best thing!

The question I have is do I have to watch on my computer? Or can I watch on my TV via my Android box?

 

Thanks!

I don't like the Alliance airships, but the Horde zeppelin is just so good, except I don't really play Horde (and never been able to get into it.)

Can't really justify spending $40 on something like this right now, so I guess I'll just have to miss out on it. :p

I'm not sure how an Android box works (never used one before), but I have only heard bad things in the past while trying to use things like Chromecast etc. There's loads of syncing issues etc. apparently.

      According to Blizzard's latest post, BlizzCon 2018 will primarily focus on an upcoming patch and not Tides of Vengeance. The article also comes with information on additional security updates at the convention.
      It almost sounds like we're getting Patch 8.1 right after BlizzCon. We know that Battle of Dazar'alor won't open immediately with the release of 8.1 and Blizzard said they're adopting the Legion patch cycle in Battle for Azeroth. Each Legion patch has been 77 days apart and Battle for Azeroth launched 76 days ago!

      Hey guys! Just wanted to take some time to set some expectations ahead of time when it comes to all of the announcements and discussions when it comes to what we’ll be talking about at BlizzCon this weekend, as well as remind everybody of some changes when it comes to security this year for attendees.

      As you all are probably aware, we’ve been hard at work on the upcoming Tides of Vengeance content update. We are very excited for this update and it is very much our immediate focus and will continue to be until after we’ve delivered it to you all. At BlizzCon you’ll be hearing us talk mainly about what comes after Tides of Vengeance. We do plan on discussing some of it, but as many of you know, BlizzCon is where we typically talk about longer term goals and plans. The feedback you all have given us about Battle for Azeroth is something we are very grateful for and we can’t wait for you to experience everything coming with Tides of Vengeance.

      For those at home on the Virtual Ticket, please let us know what you think about all the things we share that are upcoming for World of Warcraft.

      As for the security updates I mentioned earlier, we recently posted a blog on the BlizzCon site that I want to mirror to increase awareness. We’ve enhanced our security this year so I want to make sure to mention that you guys should look at arriving earlier than previous years especially if you’re wanting to catch the opening ceremony live on Friday.

      As for the measures we’ve added Metal Detectors as well as Bag Checks at every point of entrance this year. For any additional information about locations of entrances, ADA accessibility, cosplay check-ins, and restrictions, please check out the post on the BlizzCon site about the updates to the usual processes this year:
      https://blizzcon.com/en-us/news/22564764/blizzcon-2018-entry-points-update-be-sure-to-arrive-early

      For those who are coming out to Anaheim for the show, we look forward to meeting you and spending the weekend geeking out with you.

      Enjoy the show everyone!

      Blizzard have finally announced the full schedule for all the panels, competitions, tournaments and events that will be shown at BlizzCon on November 2nd through the 4th! Obviously the opening ceremonies are the main focus, just in case we get some brand new announcements (gogo Diablo 4), and among the many "What's Next" panels and World Championship tournaments for the various games we have a Diablo: World and Q&A panel in addition to a what's next one (and we really, REALLY want an answer to that question for the Diablo franchise). Also of note is the Lorecraft: Creating Memorable Characters and BfA Cinematics panels, where we might get some more discussion on the disappointment some players are feeling in the story/character development in WoW.

      In any case, there's a lot going on this year, and with the Virtual Ticket including access to the WoW Classic demo, as well as faction cloaks for WoW characters and a lot more, it seems there will be many viewers, among which many excited Diablo fans are just waiting to be disappointed.
      Here's the full schedule for each day.
      Friday, November 2nd:

      Saturday, November 3rd:

      Sunday, November 4th:

      The full BlizzCon schedule is here and there seem to be some hints at a Diablo-related announcement!
      So, on a scale of 1 to (D) 4, how likely do you think a Diablo announcement is and how ecited would you be if there was one?
