Saturday and Sunday passed quickly for those who had braved the long queues to become among the first Russian-speaking players to feel the frozen breath of Northrend on their skin. The beta portal to the Lich King’s domain was wide open at Blizzard’s booth at the IgroMir game convention in Moscow from 7 to 9 November. Due to huge popularity the Death Knight leveling contest was held three times on Saturday and the winners were rewarded with various World of Warcraft products, from mouse pads to hardware.
Those that attended were enthusiastic both about the upcoming releases of Starcraft II and Diablo III, and about the imminent release of Wrath of the Lich King. Those experiencing their first hands-on look at this second expansion for World of Warcraft said that they were now even more eager to adventure further in the worlds of Azeroth and Outland.
The Blizzard Jobs booth was also very busy with people bringing their CVs along in order to apply for the many Russian-speaking positions advertised at Blizzard.
Many thanks to everyone who was able to join us at the booth!
