Why aren’t you going to BlizzCon?

I’m not going to BlizzCon for three reasons. The first is financial. I simply can’t afford it. The second is health related. My overall health isn’t good (I mostly talk about my eyes, but there’s a lot more wrong with me than that.) The third is anxiety. I get freaked out in an LFR group, you don’t want to know what I’m like in a huge crowd. It’s not good.

But I do wish I could go. BlizzCon is like Christmas for fans, and I’ve never gotten to go. The large and varied community that’s sprung up around these games has in a lot of ways been something I’ve been part of for decades now. There’s even a piece of gear in World of Warcraft with my name on it. And yet I’ve never been to the biggest convention in the world for people who play said games. Knowing it’s my own fault doesn’t make it feel any better.

So I’ll ask you, people who will like me be settling for the Virtual Ticket — why don’t you go? Is it money? Time? A lack of interest? A fear of Reinhardt?
