Publishing giant Blizzard has announced that in 2012, there will be no Blizzcon, with all efforts being focused on creating the Diablo III that the fans want, and perhaps the next generation MMO that’s been hinted about.
2012 also sees some stiff competition in terms of esports, with Blizzard being very involved with the Battle.net World Championship and several Starcraft championships in South Korea and other asian countries.

We wanted to send a little token of nerd-appreciation to you for [...]
