The last day of BlizzCon is coming to a close, but it’s been a great day. Enthusiasm and excitement permeated the Anaheim Convention Center as the attendees filed in this morning, eager to get to any exhibits they might have missed yesterday. Huge crowds amassed in the StarCraft II and Wrath of the Lich King hands-on gaming areas. Others flocked to the jousting pit to do a little real-life PvP or to the Elekk ring to try their hand at staying on the back of the mechanical Elekk.
The developer-discussion panels were again one of the big highlights of day two. Players took advantage of these opportunities to learn more about nearly every aspect of World of Warcraft and StarCraft II, as well as to have their questions answered by members of the different teams at Blizzard. At the World of Warcraft Items and Professions panel, the development team discussed their plans for the Inscription profession and for professions in Wrath of the Lich King in general, which generated a fair amount of applause from the crowd. At the Warcraft Movie panel, representatives from both Blizzard and Legendary Pictures provided some information concerning the moviemaking process and the challenges of bringing the Warcraft game universe to the big screen… and at the end, the audience was treated to a piece of movie-storyboard art depicting Teldrassil.
Throughout the day, players could also explore the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game, not only in a dedicated discussion panel, but in a variety of demos and tournaments. Veteran TCG players offered advice on deck building and general strategies, while tournament winners walked away with prizes ranging from TCG booster packs to brand-new console gaming systems. Speaking of tournaments, the Warcraft III, World of Warcraft, and StarCraft tournaments all wrapped up today, and you can keep an eye out for the latest results on our BlizzCon tournament-bracket pages. With all of these events drawing to an end, attendees retired to their rooms to prepare for tonight’s closing celebration featuring Jay Mohr, Level 70 Elite Tauren Chieftain, and Video Games Live.
Blizzard players have come from all over the world to attend BlizzCon, and with so many together in one place, the atmosphere here has been beyond words. Though many have just met each other for the first time in person this weekend, their common passion for gaming has offered a basis for lasting friendships.
