Thread: The official BlizzCon schedule was up......

    Default The official BlizzCon schedule was up......

    ......but now it is gone.

    http://www.blizzard.com/blizzcon/events/schedule.xml

    When I first saw it, it just had the regular tournaments and panels to be expected, but no panel for bnet2. But shortly after hearing that there will be a bnet2 panel, the schedule page vanished.

    I just wonder what Blizzard's up to.

    They'll have a tough fight against Steam, and my money's on Valve in that arena.


    They definitely are up to something sneaky. Seriously, these people are doing so much hype...they obviously have taken a page out of the viral marketing campaign and the whole "let's be as sneaky as possible, get 'em so hyped up, and make millions by being coy!"

    ...almost makes me want to throttle them. Almost. Overhyping is bad. Very bad.


    Curse you blizzard, I want BlizzCon now! *sob*

    Well hopefully this means we will get to officially see it later today.... Very annoying to be completely packed and ready to get on a flight Thursday without being able to plan what to do at the actual convention ahead of time.

    EDIT: As pointed out on the blizzcon forums, the mmo-champion site has the schedule from the brief time it was up

    God forbid, that would make them well nigh insufferable, can you imagine viral marketing full of subliminal and vague "when it's done" and "this is going to be awesome, details pending" messages? The straightforward malicious glee of hiding awesome things displayed by Blizzard employees is much better.

    Maybe the schedule needs to be localized.

    The whole reason Blizzard CAN do these things and get away with it, is because of prior success.. If this was just some random new game, No one would care anymore.. They are lucky its the sequel to the best selling/most played RTS game in history, or people wouldnt give a cow what they are doing and get tired of these "sneak" tactics

    Battlenet 2 will evolve into skynet in the 2012 (when we get nasty robot guys similar to marines and banshies) but for now it will only make terrible terrible damage to our modems

    I'm counting on some b.net reveal information at blizzcon. They had a press event that was supposed to be for b.net 2.0, but that info got delayed. I'm guessing they're ready to reveal/demo stuff by now.
