Anaheim -CALIFORNIE – Hungry fans waiting in line for Blizzcon registration were forced to endure the taunting presence of the Blizzcon food cart, which waited just tantalizingly out of their reach in solid sunlight. The cart, purportedly selling goods from fruit to beverages, had prices inflated to levels you would probably expect from an event like this. Many players who dared to enter the direct sunlight immediately began to sunburn. Prolonged exposure produced smoke rising from their skin and a loud hissing noise. Blizzard apologized to the families of two attendees who reportedly died in an attempt to reach the cart. The Anaheim Convention Center said they were reviewing their procedures and would likely update their policies for offering food and drink to vulnerable patrons.
