Thanks to your generosity, I've now raised 75% of the $1000 total that I'd need to go to Blizzcon. I never expected to get more than $20, to be honest. This far from guarantees that I'll meet my goal, but it does mean that I need to start looking for a blizzcon ticket.
The only place I know of that one can find a blizzcon ticket right now is ebay, and they seem to be selling for $300-$500 by the end of the auction. I can't seem to find any buy it nows, so not sure what the actual value is. I have been told that it will increase the closer we get to blizzcon, which is why I want to act now, and not later. I figure if I don't meet my goal, I can just resell it back to blizzard and refund the majority of the cost.
However, I would much prefer to purchase a ticket from someone I trust, and I trust all of my dk buddies. If anyone reading this has a spare ticket they would be interested in selling to me, please let me know via a comment or PM on mmoc, or EJ.
