Looking forward in all of the games that Blizzard produces, we have a lot to look forward to. That also includes Blizzcon for 2019!

Honestly, I believe that next year we will have the con Saturday, November 2nd and Sunday, November 3rd. That is a full year away. On that note, For now we have games & patch’s that are going to play. Friends to gather with in Azeroth and various other places virtually.

Just remember the reason why you, for the most part, gathered at the con besides the games. People. Your raid team members, the team you play Overwatch with. The one guy or girl that you slayed demons with in Diablo. Or just the random person you met one day in Hearthstone, had your butt handed to you, and they taught you how to get better at the game.

Remember what Matthew Mercer said in the ‘Geek & Sundry’ panel. You never know the what type of day the other person is having. So when the aggressive saltiness comes along, be the light in that persons day, be kind, be the light in someone else’s day.

Blizzcon 2018: Music Announced!

blizzcon music.JPG

So 2018’s Blizzcon musical act’s have been announced.

Train, Kristian Nairn (DJ) and Lindsey Stirling are the musicians playing this year. Yes, boys and girls, more then one act is going to attend and they will overlap. I do not have any issues with the artist themselves.

Just seems odd that all of them would be playing or doing their sets all at the same time.

However I also know people do not attend the con for the music.

Hate to say it boys and girls, the year 2002 called and they want their music back. Just seems odd to have a current major act in Stirling, who toured with Evanescence over the summer along side a DJ and a band that has not been the main focus for years. Just does not seem to fit.
