Some thing that Blizzard has always done very well is include great stuff in their loot (often called swag) bags for events. This years swag from the Worldwide Invitational (WWI) in Paris is no exception, in fact it may be the best yet.
Let's start with the bag itself. It is a very cool mini messenger type bag that is worn over one shoulder and across the chest. The strap has a Velcro adjustable strip and a spot for your cell phone. The bag itself has a very nicely embroidered WWI logo on it. I would have been happy with just the bag!
It gets even better though, once we opened up the bag, swag spilled out all over the floor! There are a veritable ton of coupons and leaflets from various gaming companies, and paper items from Blizzard. Some of the paper items include a bookmark, comic book artwork, a program and much more.
We then get into the real items, there is an awesome WWI notebook to write in, although its so nice, I'd hate to spoil the pages. Next up is a precision gaming mouse pad that has the WWI artwork on it. Then for all the collectible card game players there is a starter deck of the WoW: CCG and a trial figure for the miniatures game.
Last but certainly not least is the coveted bonus code card, that will enable access to a special in game pet and an upcoming Beta of a Blizzard Game.
Overall the Swag alone is pretty much worth the price of admission. Good Job Blizzard!
