My First BlizzCon

Posted Nov 20, 2013 by Michael Bitton

My First BlizzCon

What was our Community Manager MikeB's first BlizzCon experience like? Did he wind up with the Con-Plague? Read on to find out!

There was one universal appeal to BlizzCon that for whatever reason I didn’t think about until I got there and witnessed it for myself: the Blizzard fandom. I work in community, so I love seeing people come together around shared interests, but  it just didn’t hit me until I got there. Fans are what make most cons awesome and there are few more passionate fans than Blizzard fans. This is something fairly easy to perceive just being a gamer, but it’s really something else in person. While BlizzCon is a great place for Blizzard to interact with fans and make major announcements, the show is ultimately one giant LAN party for Blizzard fans. Fans meet up with their friends, their guild mates, or even make new friends altogether. This is really what BlizzCon is about and the energy from the fans was palpable the entire time I was at the show.
