    As reported by DJTyrant earlier Blizzcon 2008 has been announced for October 10-11. I just wanted to note that back in January WoW Stratics had a prediction with some digging that those would in fact be the dates. You can totally expect us to be in full force at this event to bring you the best coverage we can!
    You can read the full press release here.
