No Blizzcon In 2012

The title says it all here is the blue post for it

Blizzard Entertainment is proud to announce the 2012 World Championship, a major global eSports event featuring some of the best pro-gaming competition in the world. Slated to take place in Asia toward the end of 2012, the World Championship will host this year’s StarCraft II and World of Warcraft Arena World Championship tournaments. Blizzard gamers and eSports fans from around the world will be invited to attend and witness some of the most skilled pro players on the planet battle it out for cash and glory.

We’re excited to be showcasing Blizzard eSports on a truly global stage this year. We're also heavily focused on getting Diablo III, Mists of Pandaria, and Heart of the Swarm into players’ hands as soon as possible. In light of our jam-packed schedule, we’ve decided to hold the next BlizzCon in 2013.

More details about the 2012 World Championship and BlizzCon 2013, including specific dates and locations, will be coming in the months ahead.
So it is true there will be no Blizzcon in 2012. This may mean what they want us to believe that the games they have tabled for release will be out that much quicker, which would be a great thing. This though is not what I am actually excited the most about. Esports is becoming a very big deal and to see Blizzard playing a large role in this is something that I think should be commended. Afterall there game Starcraft II is probably without question the most popular and most competitive Esport there is. Blizzard is now going to put their own efforts into making Esports better, which will in turn make it get more worldwide attention and recognition. This is something that I think everyone should be excited for and if we have to lose Blizzcon for a year for it to happen then so be it. The results will be something that we will all reap the rewards from.
