BATTLE FOR AZEROTH LAUNCH LAN PARTY - August 14th-16th, Detroit
It's here! The launch of World of Warcraft's seventh major expansion, BATTLE for AZEROTH has been announced.
It will be launching on August 14th, 2018, which is a Tuesday. Presumably (based on past releases) this means at 3am EST on Tuesday (very late-ass Monday night) we'll be able to log in and start the game. I have already requested time off and will be playing WoW from 3am Tuesday until I pass out. I don't go back to work until Friday morning.
Important note: This launch party will be the first that will NOT be held at ICHQ. It's going to be at my new house (I should probably name my house!) which is a couple miles away from ICHQ. Still very close and accessible to freeways, and we should have plenty of places for people to crash so nobody will need to get a hotel or whatever (and besides, why would you).
This event is much closer to a classic old-school LAN party. Junk food, late nights, pajamas, and pushing the limits of human endurance (falling asleep at your keyboard) like @TiberiusLazarus here at the Warlords of Draenor launch party back in 2014:
Bring your gaming laptop or desktop, we'll figure the rest out. See you in Azeroth! Post here if you're in!
