BlizzCon 2010 Opening Ceremony Liveblog

Direct from the floor of the Anaheim Convention Center, Quest! brings you live coverage of tbe BlizzCon 2010 Opening Ceremony.  We're counting down the minutes until things start, and wanted to make sure you knew where to check in to see our liveblog.  Keep your F5 button handy, and refresh this page often, because we'll be updating this post as new info emerges. 

So far, the attendees are quiet, I assume we can attribute that to the rainy weather outside.  We managed to get second row seating in the Press section, close enough to see Ghostcrawler sweat, so I've gotten a good look at the stage.  The stage design appears to be sci-fi alien inspired, but something different from StarCraft II motifs.  Could this indicate that the new IP is a Sci-fi MMO?&nb

Most New World Of Warcraft Players Don't Go Past Level 10

Not the best of days for World of Warcraft news, this, with the announcement of the game's stagnant userbase followed by a revelation most new WoW players barely scratch at Azeroth's surface.

Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime said earlier today that 70% of people playing on a WoW trial account (which I'd imagine would be most new players) fail to progress past level 10 in the game. Considering you can advance your character all the way up to level 80, that's not very far, indicating that most WoW players either hang around doing nothing or, as seems more likely, don't stick around too long.

And that suggests the game has a fairly high turnover rate at the moment, perhaps explaining why WoW's subscriber base hasn't moved past 11.5 million in over a year.

If Blizzard can't address that in the game's upcoming expansion pack, Cataclysm, we really could - finally - be looking at the game's tipping point in terms of popularity. Not its end, of course...just the point where the end is closer

Blizzard's Morhaime On Overcoming 'Myth' With WoW

AGDC: Blizzard's Morhaime On Overcoming 'Myth' With  WoW Think every aspect of your game play has to be customized for regionalplayers? Blizzard disagrees, and in his keynote for the Austin GDC,president Mike Morhaime discussed this and other lessons learnedthroughout the company's release history.

Morhaime's keynote speech focused on the ten lessons Blizzard haslearned in globalizing its IP, and started with a brief rundown of thecompany history, starting with him and his 2 recent UCLA graduatefriends in 1991, and the $10,000 each they got as graduation presentsor borrowed from their grandmothers.

Blizzard: The Beginning

Cutting their teeth and learning about game development by doing Amigaand Mac conversions of PC games and moving to 16 bit console titles,the decline of the console market focused the company on PC games,where it began with Warcraft.

World of Warcraft, said Morhaime, has "really transformed thecompany in ways we couldn’t possibly have imagined at the time, butthrough that process and all these years, we've really stayed committedto the same core philosophies that we were committed to at thebeginning."

First and foremost was "gameplay first," "one of our mantras," saidMorhaime

Speculation continues over the announcement that BlizzCon attendees will receive a beta key in their swag bags, and now Blizzard has finally opened attendee registration for the event. Tickets are $100, but those interested should note that includes nothing related to travel and lodging.

However, past BlizzCons have proven that that the swag items, such as the Murloc pet and World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade beta key sold for hundreds of dollars in Internet auctions -- a way for gamers to possibly recover expenditures.

If you're interested in going to BlizzCon, the event takes place in Anaheim, CA on August 3rd and 4th. Ticket registration can be found on the official site of Blizzard.

In todays episode of the 1UP Show at gamevideos.com, some of the masterminds behind World of Warcraft spill the beans on their Guitar Hero and Viva Pinata experiences, what it's like playing World of Warcraft anonymously and being treated by n00bs by raid guilds, Onyxia's Deep Breath, and the games that inspired them to create the most successful MMORPG ever made.

Forgive the random advertisment in the middle of the show, but luckily it's for yet another kick-ass NCSoft game so no worries.
