If you are excited with the opportunities and potential for a Blizzard twitter start subscribing with all three to follow them. It’s awesome to see Blizzard expand their social networking with more ways to interact with the community.

Blizzcon 2009: We want your Questions for the Diablo 3 Panels

We are now accepting questions from our community for the different Blizzcon Diablo III panels: Heroes & Monsters; Lore; and Art.  We will gather the best questions.  Flux and I will ask these on the Panel Q&As, and you will see this happen either on live streams or via DirecTV.

We also welcome questions for Jay Wilson and Chris Metzen.  We will have a few shots at them at the private press rooms. Don’t forget to visit Blizzplanet and Diii.net through August 21-22.  We will have a live blog contraption on the front page for those fans who are listening or watching the live stream or payperview.  This will allow you to ask questions on the fly based on any new updates Blizzard reveals on the panels.

Blizzard Entertainment heading to PAX 2009

Penny-Arcade has announced its line up of exhibitors this year, and Blizzard Entertainment and Upper Deck are among them.  PAX 2009 hits Seattle from September 4-6 at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center.

According to my pal Eldorian who went to PAX last year, Blizzard Entertainment showcased Starcraft 2 and Wrath of the Lich King. Fans had a hands-on gameplay at the game room floor.  Bornakk, Eyonix, and Bashiok came down to PAX last year, and you could ask questions to the CMs.  This year, however, there is no telling what Blizzard has in store to demo there.  It could be Starcraft 2, Diablo 3 and the new unannounced WoW Expansion; or a combination of two of any of those.  We will see.

Blizzplanet Wants Your BlizzCon 2009 Questions ASAP

Blizzplanet, Worldofwar.net, StarcraftWire.net and Diii.net are going to BlizzCon 2009.  I am staff member on those fansites too, so I will be on top of the news for each fansite providing updates from the show floor through our live chat (Cover it Live).

This year I am bringing my own laptop—it’s arriving next week—and my HD Video camera.  The reason of this post is to start collecting questions from our fans and visitors in advance.  If you have questions for Tom Chilton, J. Allen Brack, and Ghostcrawler about patch 3.3 and future PvP: Battlegrounds and Arena—we want your questions.

If you wish us to ask questions to Jay Wilson about Diablo III or to Dustin Browder about Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty—go ahead.  We will very likely meet them in private at the press rooms where only fansites and gaming sites have access. Re-read your questions and polish them the best you can before submitting them.

I already requested an interview spot with Richard A. Knaak and Christie Golden (pending approval) at Blizzcon 2009.  I am gathering questions for Richard about World of Warcraft: Stormrage, and Warcraft: Dragons of Outland; and for Christie about Warcraft Legends Vol. 5 (her Draka story)—and I will probably ask Christie if she can talk yet about the untitled trilogy.

You can post your questions below in the comments page, or submit it by email, or via Facebook (under just fans section).

Grabbing all these questions in advance will allow us to focus our efforts on collecting live questions via Cover It Live chat for the developer panels and new game announcements at the show floor.

I will video-interview briefly someone I am so glad to hear will appear at BlizzCon and has openly told me, wants to meet us—however, I am unable to reveal who it is at this point.  You will be excited, glad and thrilled. If Blizzard makes the announcement at the show, I will gather questions live for said person.
