In and Out of Game BlizzCon Contests

In and Out of Game BlizzCon Contests -

Two new contests announced for the upcomiong BlizzCon, one in-game one out-of-game. The in-game contest is a Battlegrounds tournament, taking place in Arathi Basin. Winners will eventually face the experts themselves... WoW developers.

BlizzCon, Blizzard's inaugural gaming convention, will feature a king-of-the-hill tournament on World of Warcraft's newest battleground: the Arathi Basin.

Players can join as part of a full pre-chosen team, as a small group, or as an individual in a pickup team. After each match, the players on the winning team will keep their seats while the losing team members give up their bank of computers to the next challengers.

In all, there will be three concurrent matches of Arathi Basin going on all day during both days of the convention. The team that retains its status as Kings of the Basin for the most consecutive wins will face the ultimate challenge on each day of the show: a battle against a team of World of Warcraft developers. In addition, there will be other prizes for teams that win multiple consecutive matches.

For a more real-life falvor, the Sound-Alike Contest may be the way to go. This is an imitation contest, so brush off the old voice boxes and have at it!

Can you perfectly mimic a whelp's squeal? Are you a dead ringer for the male Gnome's voice? Then you just might be a winner in the BlizzCon Character and Monster Sound-Alike Contest! This latest BlizzCon contest is sponsored by Games for Windows and Alienware, and the prizes are out of this world! Five lucky winners will receive Alienware Gaming Notebooks -- perfect for playing World of Warcraft on the go! So, if you sound like you belong in Azeroth, let us hear it! Contestants can signup at the show; check the BlizzCon information booth for more details at the event.
