Best Buy Hosting Live Chat with the Cataclysm Devs Today

Any of you who’ve been dying to ask the developers of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm that one key question — but missed your shot since you didn’t attend BlizzCon — may have yet another chance today (Nov. 18) starting at 4 p.m. Pacific /7 p.m. Eastern / 12 a.m. GMT.

Game Director Tom Chilton and Production Designed J. Allen Brack will host a (moderated) live chat for one hour tonight on Best Buy’s forum for Cataclysm. Surely, it’s mostly a marketing move on Blizzard’s part to host such an event at a large game retailer… but perhaps we can still gain something from it. Here are the nitty gritty details:

Join us 6-7PM CST on November 18th for a live chat with members of the Blizzard development team that worked on Cataclysm!

Chat is moderated and has a 500 user capacity. Be sure to log in early so you’re able to attend this opportunity to get your burning Cataclysm questions answered LIVE by the development team!

If you are unable to make it into the chat itself you can watch our Ustream mirror.

Actually, the truth is that this event, restricted to 500 people, will be even more limited than BlizzCon. But it’s my bet that it also will be much less widely attended, even by those who can only watch and not submit questions. So you may have a chance to get in, if you really want, or at the very least watch the live chat unfold upon the overflow Ustream mirror.

So up until then, register on the forums, prepare your questions, and make sure to glance back through our liveblog coverage at BlizzCon 2010 for the previously-covered Q&A rounds — you don’t want to waste your precious shot on a question that’s already been answered. So far, several pages on the forums already are full with what appears to be mostly new accounts registered specifically for the event — so if you’re keen to get in, register early and get in line!
