Blizzard’s annual fan convention BlizzCon kicks off this Saturday, November 7, and will bring all the usual goodies that fans of the developer crave – panels, tourneys and previews. Hit the jump to see what’s on where and you can watch it all online.

The schedule for BlizzCon 2015 looks like this (all times are in Australian Eastern Daylight-savings Time, so Queenslanders should subtract an hour and West Australians should subtract two hours):

Fans who want to get in on all the action but can’t afford flights to LA can still purchase a Virtual Ticket right here. The Virtual Ticket will run you AU$54.95 and gets you “comprehensive coverage of both days of the event, including developer panels, contests, interviews, and the closing ceremony, along with some cool commemorative in-game goodies.”

BlizzCon 2015 kicks off November 7 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Los Angeles.
