Blizzcon, Day 0

Some fun stuff happened today.

Started the day by hanging out in the Marriott lobby with a bunch of people from other fansites. All told, I think I talked with people from WoWHead, Allakhazam, Wow-achievements, WoW Radio,, The Escapist and probably one or two I’m forgetting because I’m really bad with names. After a little while, Bashiok ushered us into a bus and we headed for Blizzard HQ.

The place is impressive. A little smaller than I expected but it’s spread out across multiple buildings (and there’s a really awesome statue of what I think is probably Doomhammer in the main courtyard). First we went into the theater area and watched Bashiok play Diablo 3 for a bit (I can’t talk about this much). Afterward, we split up by franchise and Nethaera guided us around the World of Warcraft development area (nope, can’t talk about this either). Then, lunch with some of the developers, which thankfully I can talk about because Dr. Ghostcrawler himself was there (along with Monte Krol, the Lead Tools Programmer, and one of the two Lead Gameplay Programmers whose name I missed… but it was either Sam Lantinga or Patrick Magruder).

Conversation topics of note:

1. Ghostcrawler hates Heroic Strike

2. The Lead Gameplay Programmer that was in attendance plays a Prot Paladin

3. If Ghostcrawler could replace Arthas with a crustacean, it would be a lobster.

Anyway, it was pretty fun to just sit down and chat WoW with them. The conversation ranged all over the place and was very casual — no grilling the developers for front page interview material, just hanging out and eating lunch. Lots of fun.

Afterward, we went and watched something I’m not allowed to talk about at all (it wasn’t WoW-related so don’t worry yourselves too hard) and were presented with some awesome artwork framed and signed by Wei Wang himself. Then, back on the bus and back to the hotels. I may end up meeting up with some of the fansite guys later on.

Then I went and got my press badge. No line for press people, just walked up and got it, along with my goody bag and Grunty code. The big things this year are the Raynor n00b figure, the Grunty code, and a special edition Authenticator (which is just like the normal ones but with Blizzcon art on it).

I’m really excited for tomorrow!

  5. CROLLO WEBBER Nel momento della verit dunque, l’australiano ha evidentemente sentito la pressione del giro decisivo, mentre Sebastian Vettel si giocato la pole position con Lewis Hamilton anch’egli velocissimo uscendone vincitore e Fernando Alonso, con una Ferrari leggermente meno performante sul giro secco rispetto a Red Bull e McLaren, ha tirato fuori tutto il proprio talento e la propria esperienza per mettere in tasca un terzo posto che comincia ad avere il sapore di Mondiale. Evidente la frustrazione dell’australiano nel momento in cui, a fine qualifiche, non ha rilasciato dichiarazioni ai giornalisti.

The top is long enough to wear over LnA’s Lace Stripped Leggings. These black opaque stretch leggings feature feminine sheer floral lace stripes. Throw on a pair of nude gladiator sandals and a solid colored fringed shoulder crossed bag for an eccentric modern day look.
