Tickets Sold Out[edit]

As has been the case during the past few years, Blizzcon 2011 tickets sold out instantly; fans who clicked the ticket sales page just seconds after it went live were in the queue thousands of places from the top, and didn't get a chance to buy tickets.

The show dates were announced in February 2011, with the ticket sales dates (May 21st and May 25th) revealed[3] in April 2011.
