Middle of the week and just a couple more days until Blizzcon. Also looks as if Warlords of Draenor is a sure bet now as it is now a trademark in multiple locations around the globe. Really interested to see where they are going to take it. Since Blizzcon is almost here and Wednesday has turn into a day of lists I figured I could list off my favourite moments from past Blizzcons. So here we go.
5. The Is No Cow Level
So the costume contest is one which I am always excited it see each and every year. There are always your normal costumes of the most popular and though provoking characters, but when the Army of Cows came out in 2009 it was something special and awesome in everyway.
4. The Return of the Red Shirt Guy
Red Shirt guy is iconic in terms of Blizzcon mostly for her first visit which is obviously further down the list. His return though starts with Metzen coming down and giving the guy his dues. He was humble to him and then during his question the red shirt guy himself was humble right back.
3. Geek Is
This speech by Metzen was one to remember and one which has been repeated over the years. I watch it every once in awhile and I cannot say that about many speeches let alone one from a gaming convention. It truly was something special.
2. The Dawn of The Red Shirt
Maybe the most awkward Q&A ever at a Blizzcon. The guy in the red shirt told Metzen he was wrong. I just don't know how else to describe how this moment was. One does not simply tell Metzen he is wrong about Warcraft.
1. Broken Leg
The dance contest. Always amusing not only to watch the ones which are amazing and perfect in every way, but sometimes there is a moment so epic that the person involved will never live it down. Like say rocking out like and undead and then breaking your leg only to be carried off stage while Jay Mohr pokes fun at the entire situation. Yes it was that awesome.
There you go my favourite moments throughout the history of Blizzcon. Cannot wait to see what happens this year.
