Yeah. I'm as nerdy as the next guy that visits this site, but sometimes it goes too far. A convention to celebrate a single company? It's just mental masturbation, and it really isn't necessary (this goes for Blizzard and id), in my not so humble opinion.
Eh; I'd agree with that if WoW didn't have two million customers; not to mention the Warcraft, StarCraft and Diablo franchises all being million sellers as well. SOMEBODY is playing those games.
Anywho, it looks Blizzard found a replacement for their ECTS announcements. Shame I'm going to be hanging out with the assholes at PAX this year, can't really justify two trips for extremly geeky endeavors.
