When the response to this is a bunch of underwhelmed fans wanting to be there live, Blizzard be like, “Do you guys not have phones?”
Yea that is why Im not excited, I have little faith that they will give us anything good.
Feels like it’s going to be one of those " this is what we have been doing since last time" kind of things, like a news update thing, doubt it will be anything really entertaining, though they will probably have like giveaways and stuff
(Did not read the OP article btw)
I expect not to attend, online or in person
Same here. Blizzard and Bioware are two companies that I don’t have faith in anymore.

Same here, but I also would never have attended before anyway. So no change for me.
Highlights from the opening:
Blizzard is remaking
The Rogue class is coming to
WoW: Shadowlands’ first major update is called Chains Of Domination
Burning Crusade Expansion is coming to WoW Classic
Hearthstone’s new expansion is called Forged In The Barrens
The Blizzard Arcade Collection is out now on PC, Switch, PS4, and Xbox One
