BlizzCon 2016 marks the tenth annual gathering hosted by Blizzard, and should shape up to be a pretty epic event. This also marks Blizzard’s 25th anniversary, so it should be an event to remember. BlizzCon is one of the most anticipated esports tournaments, and rightfully so. Blizzard has always been a pioneer in gaming, and has plenty of hugely played games to show for it. This year at BlizzCon, seasoned players will compete in StarCraft II, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, and (my personal favorite) the World of Warcraft Arena Championship. The event isn’t until November, but tickets go on sale really, really soon, and can only be purchased on two days. If you were planning on going, you better be ready to scramble for tickets.
BlizzCon Tickets can be bought on April 20 and 23. The event will be held in Anaheim, California, on November 4 and 5. If you want to go, you need to get your tickets on one of these two days. The tickets go for $199, and are released in batches. The first batch goes on sale at 7 PM Pacific Standard Time, April 20 and the second batch goes on sale at 10 a.m. P.T, April 23. The tickets will be sold through Universe, or you can just check out the BlizzCon Tickets page.
Esports are still relatively new in the scope of the gaming community. While they will be a large focus of BlizzCon, perhaps the more exciting part of these conventions are the panels. You can find out breaking news about what Blizzard is working on, and what may soon be on the horizon. There will surely be talk of the Warcraft movie, new games on the way, sequels to older games, expansions, and whatever else Blizzard has been up to.
