Fans should prepare themselves as BlizzCon 2015 are set to go on sale today and then again on Saturday. Get the wallet ready for early ticket purchasing for Blizzard’s biggest event of the year.
Earlier today Blizzard announced via the BlizzCon forums tickets for BlizzCon 2015 will go on sale tonight at 7pm PDT. They have also went ahead and laid out details for the sale of tickets and how they will be delivered, and how you can change the ownership of the ticket from one person to another.
Ticket Delivery and Making Name Changes
This year, emails containing tickets will be sent *immediately* upon purchase, and will be sent to both the ticket purchaser and whoever the person assigns each ticket to.
Keep in mind that ticket buyers have until August 14 to change the names on each ticket they’ve purchased. That means:
- For ticket buyers: If you bought tickets through Eventbrite and reassign them to someone else, make sure you tell the person you assigned it to previously that their ticket has been reassigned and will no longer grant entry to the show.
- For people who received tickets: If someone else bought tickets for you, double-check with them that your ticket is still in your name after the name-change deadline rolls around (August 14).
IMPORTANT: In order to pick up a badge at BlizzCon, the name on your ticket must match the name on your photo ID, as well as the name assigned to the ticket in the ticketing system.
That means if the ticket was reassigned to someone else without your knowledge and you show up to BlizzCon anyway, we won’t be able to give you a badge—so be careful when acquiring a ticket from a source you don’t know and trust.
Access Tickets at Any Time
One other important change for ticket buyers: This year, you’ll be able to access and reprint your tickets at any time through your Eventbrite account. That means no more waiting around for us to send out a badge email, and no need to worry if you or your attendees lose that email or they get caught in your Spam filter.
They have also outlined how fans will be able to order their tickets starting tonight and also on Saturday.
BlizzCon 2015 tickets go on sale Wednesday, April 15 at 7 p.m. PT and Saturday, April 18 at 10 a.m. through www.blizzcon2015.eventbrite.com. Good luck, and we look forward to seeing everyone there!
Looks like fans will have more than one chance at tickets for BlizzCon 2015.
