Few activities aren’t improved by wearing only your underwear. (Frying anything with a high fat content is one, as is going for a smoke at the North Pole research station.) Unfortunately, Society dictates that we’re unable to pursue underwear-touting happiness in public. So anyone wishing to go to this year’s Blizzcon in just their undergarments would have to suffer the stares of the jealous masses.
Blizzard, recognising this shortfall, are selling tickets to watch feeds of all of Blizzcon’s happenings in the privacy of your own home.
The virtual tickets will also get you in-game items for World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Diablo III, and Hearthstone. Now, that last one suggests that Hearthstone’s open beta will be opening before or at Blizzcon, else ticket holders will be left with items they can’t use. That, or they’ll be given beta access when they buy a ticket.
The ticket also lets you buy Blizzcon merchandise with a discount. The sale will take place over five days in the weeks running up to Blizzcon.
Finally, the ticket also gets you access to the WCS and Warcraft eSports tournament streams.
The ticket costs £25 and can be bought here.
