DreamHack… The largest digital festival in the world.  When we first heard that DreamHack would be coming to Atlanta we at Hero Power got really excited about the prospects of getting to see some of the best Hearthstone action in the world LIVE right in our backyard.  Zerotio, Virsica, and myself started planning almost immediately, how could we make this trip a reality and what can we do to bring exclusive coverage to you, our fans.

We set out this weekend with cameras and recorders in hand and have taken some great shots and some awesome videos that we are going to share with you over the next few days and on this coming weeks episode of Hero Power.  To tide you over I am including a few of those pictures below:

Let us know in the comments what kind of content you would like to see, and stay tuned for more from DreamHack.
