Even with the amount of security there, with everything that's going on right now in the news, I honestly can't really lie and say that I'm not at least a little bit worried/anxious about something like that possibly happening at Blizzcon.

I'm not going to let my fear get to me of course and I'm still going to go, but it's hard to shake this feeling and it really sucks.

Does anyone else feel the same at all? Any suggestions on how to feel better about it and not let it ruin your enjoyment of Blizzcon?

We actually posted an update on the BlizzCon site about security about 2 weeks ago. Sorry for the less than timely reply to the thread today as I've been super busy finishing up last minute BlizzCon things!

First, in order to keep up-to-date with the latest security standards for conventions like BlizzCon, this year there will be metal detectors in addition to bag checks at each entry point where you show your BlizzCon badge. You’ll need to pass through these security measures every time you want to enter the convention area.

Well this thread got ridiculous... I can't believe that we can't be civil when discussing something as nonpartisan as security for attendees. Locking and reposting my reply that was glossed over as this is something we've addressed this year.
