Ahh, yes. Today another batch of tickets went on sale for BlizzCon 2009. Sideshow and I were ready, or so we thought.
Twitter was wrought with anticipation as the countdown began.
@greyseer: *waves to everyone else setting up camp for BlizzCon tickets, and also everyone else not* ‘mornin’, all.
@Syrana: *scoots lawn chair along slowly* Mornin’. Damn lines. /sigh ;P
@greyseer: And so begins LineCon 2009! =P
(As you can see, credit for part of the title goes to @greyseer!)
We partied up with a guildmate in hopes that 1 of the 3 of us would be successful instead of trying to solo the queue like Sideshow did on the 16th. This time, they didn’t seem to go on sale early. Sideshow and I were refreshin’ away when both of us saw “tickets available” at 12pm CST (10am PST). Sideshow actually hit the “proceed to checkout” button first, but I managed to be higher in the queue than him.
That’s where I entered it.
Oh no! That was even worse than we did last time… it looked like we were doomed.
Then, my phone alerts… incoming text message from guildie asking “What position?”
Crap! My counter says “undetermined” then flips me to the Blizzard store page with an empty shopping cart. Sideshow was at 6800something. I text back with our fail positions.
He texts back.. he’s at 1600something!
My heart leaps! I get excited, nervous, and scared.
I wait a bit, see tweets about people getting tickets and the running stock countdown by @wowinsider.
I start to get more nervous since I haven’t heard anything back.
Finally, I text “Success?”
Woot! Sideshow and Syrana will not only be IN Anaheim, CA, but we will be able to go INTO BlizzCon as well!
Now, to break the news to Capwn that he can’t go….
And.. to costume or not to costume? Where do I start? Ahhh!
Oh, one more thing – check out the RSVP list for the Twisted Nether/Blog Azeroth meetup so far. If you are going to BlizzCon and aren’t on that list yet, you should be!
