Dispatch from Dun Morogh and Inforge!
Well, we're all packed and ready to take over Hall #5 at Paris' Porte de Versailles ExpoCenter, where two weeks from this weekend, the Blizzard Entertainment Worldwide Invitational will be rockin' everybody's world, and makin' a whole lotta normal folks wonder who those things are!
What's that? "Waitaminnit, Your Majesty! What if I can't do Paris, man?" you're sayin'? Hey, we here in beautiful downtown Irvine, California got nothin' but love, love and more love for ya ---- which is why we're comin' back to the Anaheim, California Convention Center on October 10th and 11th! That's right, it's BlizzCon 3, where the whole WarCraft, Diablo and StarCraft gangs --- including head-bashin' ol' me! --- assemble to thank all our fans for making us who, what and why we are! We got hands-on gameplay with the newest Blizzard stuff; discussion panels with our development slaves; tournaments for our defending and future champions; a whole mess of exhibit areas for our fave licensees; costume, machinima, and even character sound-alike contests; a silent auction; commemorative merchandise --- and, as always, a closing night dance party and concert, spotlighted by a way-cool ass-kickin' band to be named later.
Hey, when you've just surpassed the 10 mil subscriber mark, you ain't gonna have time to rest on your laurels, kids! You gotta learn to move it, or else you're gonna lose it --- and losin' it ain't on our to-do list! Besides, after BlizzCon 3, some of us get to do Disneyland for a skosh!
Hey, I gotta go. We got us a plane to catch --- and not enough champagne to guzzle down! Catch ya in Paree, mes Dwarf-lovin' amis!
Love, as always,
