BlizzCon

BlizzCon 2013 is right around the corner, and today Blizzard Entertainment opened doors to the pre-sale the Blizzard Store. The assortment of items includes a Diablo III backpack, a WoW mahjong set, a handful of cute plushies, and various art books, among other things. If you were lucky enough to get a physical ticket or purchased a virtual ticket, the sale will run from October 11 through November 9; remember additional items will be added as time goes on.

If you are lucky enough to be an attendee, consider heading over to the Meeting Stone to see who else is going, plan any meetups, or gloat (well, maybe not that...). There will also be a physical Meeting Stone at the conference:

Find Your Friends at The Meeting Stone | 2013-10-08 00:00 | Zarhym
BlizzCon is a great place to meet up with friends, guildmates, and other cohorts, and this year we’re providing you with the perfect space right on the show floor. Located between Halls B and C, The Meeting Stone is an easy and recognizable gathering point as it will literally contain a giant life-sized Meeting Stone. No more hiking upstairs to squint at each other in a well-lit room, this year you’ll be able to meet up at this central location and be just a scant few meters away from the main stage, demo areas, and other attractions.


The Blizzard Community Team and other staff members will be on-hand to interact with those summoned to the Meeting Stone (and to mitigate potential corpse camping). We’ll be putting together a schedule to reserve space and times for larger groups, to also be displayed at the event.

Connected realms

Two more realms have been put on the list for Connected Realms: Black Dragonflight and Skullcrusher; Boulderfist and Bloodscalp were the first.

Blizz is rolling this out slowly, measuring the technical limitations and adjusting accordingly. Once they have it nailed down and the bumps smoothed out you can bet they'll be quicker with these sorts of things.

Warcraft movie

It doesn't look like it's been widely publicized, but according to Irish Central it appears the powers that may be are eying Colin Farrell for the Warcraft Movie. Was he mentioned in our fan-made Warcraft Movie Actors list?

Vivendi

It turns out Vivendi, the company that owned majority stakeholder in Activision Blizzard for a bit o' time now, has been given the green light to sell most of their ActBlizz shares back to the game company as well as an investor group led by Bobby Kotick. The deal was stalled earlier this year and sent to court, as at least one minority shareholder thought other minority shareholders should be included in the decision. A lower court judge supported that, but now the higher court has overturned the verdict, and it's expected the sale will happen momentarily, before the Tuesday deadline.

Vivendi will still hold a 12% stake in the company.
