Sales for the Virtual Ticket will commence September 12th. There will be a special unboxing stream as well. The stream will reveal goody bag items and the digital Overwatch item. Then, between the 12th and October 30th, Blizzard will release video highlighting the amazing parts of the community. The highlights will be similar to last year.

Community Infographic:

As part of the Hype-train, an assemblage of community statistics was put together. To view the extensive infographic, click here.

For instance, 37 million people are active players. They come from 200 countries with an average of 30,000 logins per minute. Battle.net players have 21 friends on average. However, the friendliest people are Koreans with 28 friends. This is likely due to the culture of gaming cafes.

Moreover, players have been slain 2.8 billion times by legion dungeon and raid bosses. This compares to the 1.4 billion times we have slain bosses. That is a fairly good ratio considering the number of players going up against a single boss.

The infographic ends with a quote from Mike Morhaime, Co-founder and CEO of Blizzard.

There are no strangers at Blizzcon, only friends you haven’t met yet.”
