I feel it a little with barge right now, but since the lineup doesn't really do it for me, I'm not that busted up about it.

about the gut-wrenching: I can't really tell yet because Barge doesn't really count for me; therefore I could "focus" on the being-happy-for-them part

I will likely return in the future, but NOT for 2012, just too much money and vacation time
On 70k 2012, I stated:
I will most likely not return for Barge and 70k 2013, certainly I will not do both!
On Barge 2012, I stated:
Andy, you have made me into a liar!
So, am I booking more cruises as soon as they are announced?
Well, guess I won't say no, just "we'll see"
I do book blindly since I know I will have an awesome time, hanging with friends, drinking beers, feeling lika I am actually "normal" for 4 days, and the occasional band watching.
When I went to wacken in 2005 and 2006 it was mainly to hang with friends at the camp grounds, I watched 2-3 bands per (WOA) festival those two years.
So even though line up is pretty important, I also come for a huge part to meet my metal family on the ship.
But it is indeed also a whole lot of money every time, especially now with two so close together.
We shall see how it goes, but I feel I'm in between the first two, not blindly booking and the line up is sort of important.

Also - how many will be "blind-bookers" for 70K 2014 or Barge 2014? (Or at least book with a very small amount of bands announced). In my case, I may book blind for Barge 2014 if the date is sometime in the fall (were they talking Oct or Nov?). It's funny how far away that seems....but concerning planning ahead for a family trip of ours for summer 2014, we'll be booking rooms at a few very popular National Park lodges on Feb 11, 2013. (first day you can book for summer 2014!)
