BlizzCon 2019 Virtual Tickets
BlizzCon is next month and I’m so excited. We may have a new expansion announcement, and I’m hoping to hear about patch 8.3. Rumors say that we’ll be visiting the Shadowlands in the next expansion. We’ll have to wait until BlizzCon for our answer. A month isn’t too long to wait though. It’ll be here before we know it. For now we can enjoy our new Wendigo Woolies which came with the virtual BlizzCon ticket.

Purchasing the virtual BlizzCon ticket will give you in-game rewards. These include transmogrifiable Wendigo Woolies and in-game pets. Fans have been having a great time showcasing their cute but deadly toons on Twitter. The woolie wasn’t the only fun part. Murlocs themed after Sylvanas (Gilvanas) and Anduin (Finduin) were also added. These unique pets are super fun.

Gamespot Interviews Blizzard President J. Allen Brack
So, besides the exciting BlizzCon 2019 virtual ticket this week, we also got a new interview. Gamespot’s Tamoor Hussain interviewed Blizzard President J. Allen Brack. Brack said announcing WoW Classic was hugely satisfying at BlizzCon two years ago. He said that the company didn’t believe they would recreate WoW Classic. They decided in 2017 that they were going to do it.
Blizzard has had a rough year with layoffs and shake-ups at the executive level. Brack wants to reassure fans that Blizzard still honors it’s core values. He said:
What I think is important for people to know is the values that have built this place and built Blizzard are still the same values. – Blizzard President J. Allen Brack
Most of the article is the usual corporate speak. In other words, great questions were asked, but some evasive answers were given. The biggest takeaway from this interview is that Blizzard learned from their mistakes. They gave the fandom WoW Classic. If you’re a Diablo fan, the company is acknowledging that they didn’t present the mobile game well. It made perfect sense that Diablo fans would be angry when they’ve waited so long for Diablo 4. Hopefully, Blizzard focuses mainly on PC games moving forward, and they don’t forget to listen to their consumers.
The Cinematic Art of World of Warcraft: Volume I

Blizzard is releasing the Cinematic Art of World of Warcraft: Volume I on October 15th. This stunning book has pictures and history behind the amazing cinematics in the game. It’s certainly a must grab because the cinematic team always does a fantastic job. In Battle for Azeroth, the cinematics feel like a movie. It’d be awesome if a Warcraft movie or Netflix show was made in the cinematic art style. Blizzard’s cinematics has always had a realistic, but epic feels to them.

This book is jam-packed with art, character quotes, design ideas, and storyboard concepts.
