I want to be there. I went in 2011 for the first time and I loved it. Except for the part where I developed a really bad migraine at the end of the second day so left the concert early and crashed missing all the end of day stuff but this year I will be prepared. Well more prepared then illidan.

First time going, haven't decided either to fly solo or room with some friends I've met from streaming.

Cdew won't take you under his wing? I'm sure he would be a blast to hang with for that weekend!

For those of you who haven't been to Blizzcon before, (especially if you play wow) there are realm meetups and these are one of the most exciting parts I look forward to every year. Many people you will meet in line or in random crowds are pretty friendly. If you're alone don't be afraid to chat it up with some people who are idling around resting on the corners from the day's festivities or whatnot.

I can attest to my experience of how awesome BlizzCon is. 2011 was my 4th year in attendance, I wasn't planning on this but I met the love of my life, a fellow solo attendee, at the benefit dinner. It was his first BlizzCon. I came as a group that weekend and casually invited him to come join along with us. We have never known each other at all before this. (not even realid/in-game etc...)

Rest was history. We got married a year later (2012). Many of our date evenings were spent competing against each other on DPS in LFR's. We plan on attending again this year.

I can say that every year I've attended had it's own distinct flavor outside of the official festivities and it's definitely worth remembering these unforgettable nerdy memories :3

From what I recall - in terms of using phones and wifi at the convention center, signal/coverage (respectively) is super limited. It was really hard to keep in touch with people through phones and texting inside the building :(

Wifi is super expensive in the exhibit halls and is generally most marketable to vendors/clients (in this case, Blizzard and little Blizzcon vendor shops). I may be wrong now since things *may* have changed since then though especially with more people using smartphones.
