BlizzCon 2008 tickets all gone

Site goes up, fans go mental.

There are no more tickets for BlizzCon 2008, after waves of adoring fans pecked them up like frenzied pigeons.

Blizzard had technical problems after hordes of hungry would-be attendees ground the sales site to a halt.

Service resumed yesterday evening, but after a handful of hours all of the USD 100 tickets had gone.

BlizzCon 2008 is expected to house more than 10,000 people this October in California. Guests will get to see and play upcoming titles such as Diablo III, World of Warcraft: The Wrath of the Lich King, and StarCraft II.

There should also be plenty of people dressed as their favourite characters from Blizzard games; the murloc race from World of Warcraft is a particular crowd-pleaser.
