Trying to get your hands on BlizzCon 2014 tickets is never easy, usually the purchase page hangs or they are sold out because your clicky finger is just slow. To make sure everyone is prepared for the big day Blizzard released the guide below to make sure all the information required is to hand.
Remember, these go in sale on the 7th and 10th of May for $199 plus taxes.
Information you will need:
Your information: First Name, Last Name, Email Address, Character name (optional)
Credit card information, including billing information (Country, Address, City, State, Zip Code)
Your friends’/family’s information: First Name, Last Name, Email Address, Character Name (optional)
Step 1: Head to www.blizzcon2014.eventbrite.com, and choose the quantity of tickets you wish to purchase from the drop-down menu. Please remember there is a 4-ticket-per-household limit for General Admission tickets and a 2-ticket-per-household limit for the BlizzCon Benefit Dinner.
Note: Benefit Dinner tickets will not be on sale until May 14.
Step 2: Click “Order Now.” Once you do so, you may find yourself in a “waiting room” before you enter the checkout process. Ticket buyers will be sent from the waiting room to checkout in the order they arrived, and there’s no need to refresh your browser. Keep in mind that being in the waiting room doesn’t necessarily mean you’re guaranteed tickets.
Step 3: Once you’re in the checkout and registration process, ensure the quantity of tickets is correct, and review the subtotal. Keep in mind that you can’t change the quantity of tickets during this process.
You will have 8 minutes to complete your purchase. A countdown will be displayed on-screen so you know how much time you have remaining. After 8 minutes, the tickets will be released for others to buy, drawing from those in the waiting room first.
Step 4: Fill out the Ticket Buyer information (your name and email) to purchase the tickets. All information is required in this step. Make sure you enter a valid email address that you use regularly, as important event communications (including your badges) will be emailed to this address.
Step 5: Enter the credit card information you wish to use for the transaction. Remember, you will need to have this card at the convention if you need to make changes on-site. See the Badge Information web page for more information. (All information is required in this step.)
Step 6: Enter the correct billing information for the credit card you are using to purchase the tickets. (All information is required in this step.)
Step 7: Enter your name and email address for the first ticket (or your friend/family member’s information if you’re purchasing a ticket for someone other than yourself). If you don’t have that information now, just enter your own name and email for now—you’ll have until June 6 to make changes. (All information is required in this step.)
Step 8: Optionally, enter your character name for your favorite Blizzard game (or the character name of the person you’re assigning this ticket).
Step 9: Check the box to agree to the waiver. If you do not agree, you cannot proceed with purchasing BlizzCon tickets. Remember there is a 4-ticket-per-household limit for General Admission and a 2-ticket-per-household limit for the Benefit Dinner.
Step 10: Enter your friends’ or family members’ name and email address for each additional ticket. Again, you’ll have until June 6 to make changes if you need to sort that out later. (All information is required in this step.)
*If you do not have that information at the time of purchase, use the drop-down menu to auto-fill the ticket with your own name and email address—or, you can manually enter your own information. Remember you need to do this separately for each additional ticket you’re be purchasing.
Step 11: Optionally, enter the character name of the person using this additional ticket. You can leave this blank.
Step 12: You will need to agree to this waiver for each additional ticket you’re purchasing.
Step 13: Once you’ve entered everything, click Pay Now.
Once you click Pay Now, you will be sent to a processing order page.
