You may know it already, but every year I try to live-track everything related to World of Warcraft by close watching the stream. For this year’s BlizzCon coverage I’ll ditch the live-blog part. There are a couple of reasons behind this decision and I’ll do my best to explain myself.
First of all, doing this from Asia is not very entertaining. I did it last year as well and it was a real struggle. Also, doing it from a laptop is a pain, no matter how many workspaces I use.
Besides the technical difficulties and being on the other side of the planet, I expect very little news about World of Warcraft’s details and future content. Legion is still fresh and patch 7.1 was just launched. I believe Diablo will be the knight in the shiny armour this year.
Now, as a final reason, to be honest, most people read the highlights and twitter/facebook updates. So I’ll try to focus on social media a bit.
So if there are no live-blogs, what will happen?
Well, I’ll keep posting the daily highlights and, if possible, will add a detailed post for each big news about WoW. I highly doubt that we’ll hear anything unimaginable, but still. I hope those promised Pristine Realms (did I remember the name right?) are going to be introduced with this BlizzCon. All this time I’ll be on twitter and try to keep the highlights live in there.
Anyhow, if you want to watch the live-stream go ahead and buy a Virtual Ticket. Also, leave a comment or send me a tweet. 🙂
