BlizzConline will be free for everyone

2020 has been a whole year of delayed, postponed, cancelled or modified event announcements thanks to Covid-19, and the beginning of the 2020 calendar doesn’t seem to be faring much better.

This year didn’t have a BlizzCon instead opting to have an online version of the event in February next year. This BlizzConline, from February 19-20 will be free to everyone.

After years of BlizzCon being a pay-to-play event with a few things available for free, but the bulk of the panels, deep dives, Q&As and more behind a paywall, this BlizzConline will have no virtual ticket. Blizzard president J. Allen Brack said in a fireside chat that the team wants a big virtual celebration, so they are removing the paywall.

Hopefully, we will see something Overwatch 2 or Diablo 4 related at BlizzConline, and I wonder what engagement they want to see. Will there be the standard virtual ticket setup, or is everything moving to Twitch, where chat can spam emotes and chat strings?

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
