Blizzcon every year for me is a beautiful fun experience that I tend to get lost in for a couple of days and emerge smiling and exhausted with a renewed love for my favorite game company. This year was truly a high point of my convention year. I went to Blizzcon this year planning to spend it with all my friends and in the end spent it more alone then I was expecting and normally my anxiety and general social awkwardness would have left me paralyzed and unable to handle the convention. Instead I took the time to do things I had never done at other Blizzcons, like get developers to sign posters for my house since I have no Blizzard art up. I am pretty devastated that in my hustle and bustle I forgot to get the Starcraft poster so now my wall won’t be complete. I will survive I am sure.
This year I spent time at every area except Starcraft not because I don’t love my little zerglings but because I ran out of time. I played through Diablo 3 and loved the necromancer. I am glad for the addition and will be playing at home for certain. Then I played through Keystone dungeons in WoW since I had not yet leveled my character at home and had yet to see it. I played with a family from England and the young son was our healer and was adorable.
I talked to all the different vendors and checked out all the new stuff they are coming out with. I fell in love with Rosehill’s Widowmaker case that I feel will be a new design for me to make be my gaming computer. I loved all the colors in the systems it was so beautiful.
i made it out to almost all of the parties and got to see so many friends and enjoy myself. Each party had its unique feel and I got something different out of each one. I won a gold pin at the Wowhead party, tried and didn’t win any art at the Con before the storm party. I drank and ate so much at the Forge Party and made so many friends.
Myexperience at Blizzcon this year will not be one that I forget soon.
