Looks like I'll be there from Wednesday until Sunday night. Plenty of time for meet-ups, especially if others are making a vacation of it.

I'll be up there for something like Thurs-Sun, while I'm visiting that part of the US anyway.

We're arriving Wednesday afternoon and we fly out on Monday afternoon, so definitely around for meetups too.

So Blizzcon is just around the corner. Any tips, tricks, suggestions for a couple of first timers or recommendations on other things to do in the area or nearby? We are driving so we are gonna have our own transportation.

Disneyland is more or less right next door, if that's of interest there will probably be a kiosk somewhere in the convention center where you can buy tickets.

Any fixings of a meet this year? Maybe we can coalesce at a larger one, not sure who all is hosting this year.

I think Nika and Invis planned the one two years ago. But if I recall correctly, they're not going this time.

IIRC we met at a bar on the corner of Harbor Blvd and W Wilken Wy (Clancy's based on memory and Google Maps). That Thursday evening would likely be the best bet for a meet for balance between those making a long trip out of it and those doing extra parties during the con (I expect the extra/after parties to be done on Friday and Saturday).

I think this will be my last Blizzcon and I'll be quitting WOW within a couple of weeks after (baby on the way and I just haven't had the time to enjoy it for a while). I'd love to meet up again and possibly swap some Bnet IDs (still plan on playing Diablo, SC2 and Hearthstone (made the beta)). I'll be getting there on the 7th (should be early afternoon). It has been fun being a tankadin and I'll likely just keep lurking and tracking the game lore for fun.

Actually, I just had another idea. If there is a sufficient lull in the action during the con (based on the current schedule) and they have the WOW stations up again (just an area for people to play), would anybody be up for a Maintankadin raid? My plan is to throw in the towel after taking down Garrosh and I would love to do it with some of the people on here (provided there are enough willing to join and have Alliance characters).

I'm not going to Blizzcon, but ideally, I should be available for one of those, depending on the time.

I know I'll be at the WoWinsider party on Thursday night. Last time, I left that early to go to the MT party. I could do that again, but if there aren't many MT people going this year it might just be easier to plan to all meet up at the WoWI party (AFAIK, myself, Rhidach, Mel, Anafielle will all probably be there already).

I'll leave it up to the rest of the people going to decide though. There are lots of people I want to meet, so it'll be a busy weekend for me either way, and I don't want everyone else scheduling around me just because I spoke up. Pick what's most convenient for everyone else, and I'll make sure to make an appearance.

BTW would anyone say it is worth it to try to camp front row seats for any of the presentations rather then just takin it easy, wondering around and grabbin whatever seat you can find (or just standing)?

Based on the schedule, I'll likely be in hall D for the whole of Friday (but likely skip the contests). I'll be trying to get in line early and wouldn't mind working with a partner/group to get good seats and reserve for those that won't be there for all of them.

Also: schedule

FYI, it looks like you can schedule a time for the Meeting Stone:

That might be a good alternative if people decide it's easier than trying to do dinner somewhere.
