Contests, Realm to Realm and BlizzCon -

Lots of news coming out of Blizzard's World of Warcraft, some involving BlizzCon and some not. In terms of BlizzCon, what convention would be complete without a full list of vendors? WoW is now offering just that list so that attendees will know exactly who will be represented:

BlizzCon is about more than just the games. It's also about the hardware, accessories, and gaming lifestyle. The exhibitors we've partnered with for BlizzCon will be there to celebrate all aspects of gaming culture. Exhibitors ranging from NVIDIA to Intel to Games for Windows and more will be on hand with their latest gaming products. Come to their booths to see hands-on demonstrations, win prizes and promotions, and purchase their products at the show. Click here to view the full exhibitor list.

In the world outside of BlizzCon, WoW developers have announced another set of Realm Transfers:

In order to ensure that World of Warcraft players enjoy an optimal gaming experience during peak hours, we're opening realm-to-realm character transfers for the realms listed below. These transfers will help bring the overall concurrency of these realms down to a level that not only improves performance and stability, but also alleviates queues. Please note that we constantly monitor realm populations. If other realms begin to experience long queues or other issues caused by overpopulation, we will address them accordingly.

  • Warsong to Gurubashi
  • Skullcrusher to Smolderthorn
  • Blackrock to Frostwolf

The realm transfers listed above will open on Thursday, October 20 at 3:00 AM and will be open daily from 3:00 AM to 3:00 PM until October 27. We thank you for your patience in dealing with the high population realms and wish you luck on your adventures in Azeroth!

Blizzard has also announced the winners of one contest, and the beginning of another. To get the results of the exciting "Wanted Poster" contest, click here. Blizzard has also announced a new contest. This one the ever-popular and seasonally appropriate, Halloween Contest:

Pumpkin-Carving Contest!

October's longstanding tradition is upon us! Every year, Blizzard encourages legions of gamers to attack countless pumpkins with sharp utensils in the name of art, and this year is no exception. Take inspiration from any Blizzard game you like and carve your pumpkin in the theme of that game.

Halloween Screenshot Contest!

All Hallow's Eve is almost upon us, and the inhabitants of Azeroth are reveling in their own frightful festivities! It's time to polish the lens of your Super Snapper FX and capture those monstrous moments.

Winners of both contests will receive:

  • One Copy of World of Warcraft
  • A six month subscription of "game time" to the World of Warcraft gaming service applied to the World of Warcraft account of their choosing.
