This is my second year purchasing the Virtual Ticket. I knew there was no big Warcraft announcement. In fact, I was more excited about the Overwatch announcement of Sombra than anything else. Unlike last year, the streaming performance was flawless. Maybe because I was simply streaming this on my work desktop :-O (and not a wifi attached laptop), maybe because Blizz has up'd the streaming quality.
My Biggest Complaints:
Hard to Watch while Live. When it was playing Live (aka "Hall D") it was hard to pause and go back. I wanted to grab a screenshot of the warlock mount, going back 30 seconds, is virtually impossible on the live stream. Instead I spent 5 minutes, skipping back and forth approximately half an hour of the video coverage looking for a 10 second video clip. Sigh.. With it paused, the video grey's out, making my screenie rather useless. A DVR-style 30-second rewind button would have been awesome! Bookmarks to each of the various segments ( Overwatch Q&A, What's new in Warcraft, etc.) instead of an 8 hour long video would have been awesome!
Lots of interesting non-streaming content. I get that it's important that your site reflects the entire conference schedule, but what I'd absolutely love is a filter button up top that wouldn't have shown me the Art and Design or Blizzard Engineering sessions. As an IT engineer, I really was looking forward to peeks at the back-end of Blizzard's infrastructure and design. Then when the reminder popped on the BlizzCon app and I couldn't watch it?!?!
No Closing Ceremonies. I was really looking forward to sharing the Weird Al concert with my family. We've seen a number of his videos on Youtube, but I've never had the opportunity to see him perform 'live'. I planned to have everyone huddle around the big computer monitor (or hook laptop to TV in family room) and all jam. Sadly. Nope. Nothing. While I understand the performance issues with broadcasting the concert, I am still deeply saddened that I can't share this with my kids.

What is your favorite expansion of warcraft and why do you think its your favorite? Wrath of the Lich King would have to be my absolute favorite. I started with WoW a few months before BC.

The bronze dragon, Chromie is still suffering from the events that lead to her many deaths during the Legion invasion. She's fatigued from keeping up access for champions to adventure in the many different timelines. In 9.3, we will adventure into an ever-changing timeline with zones phasing between classic (including season of mastery realms), vanilla (pre-cataclysm), post-cataclysm, and a future alternate reality where the Iron Horde was successful in conquering Azeroth. Characters will phase randomly into various timelines as they are playing through a series of 'What-if' type scenarios. Some of the possibilities include: Argus never fell to Burning Legion. Quest alongside Velen to perform daily tasks. Players turn 'evil' after killing the end raid boss of select raids. Your raid team is allowed to hire raid boss' minions and take over the raid environment. The objective is to keep the raid under your control for as long as possible against other raid grou
So you've finally realized that the Bee Mount is the absolute BEST mount in the entire game. You want one, no, NEED one right now. OK, so what do you need to make this happen. Step 0: Go to the auction house and buy a few monel-hardened stirrups . Using the stirrups is the best way to harvest jelly. No need to dismount unless you are attacking something. Try not to. Step 1: Head over to wowhead and read what they said over there. This will give you all the details on how to get started. Turning off ground clutter really does help. Step 1B: set your hearthstone to the inn in Brannadam. It's a bit of a pain if your dalaran hearth is on cooldown, but nice to not have to fly back to stormsong each time. Step 2: You've now finished the intro quest chain, and are planning to harvest lots of thin jelly. You need to level your baby bee up 10,000 (3,000 for baby, another 7,000 for mature) health points to 'mature' and each thin jelly feed this little guy 6, SIX. Th
