Last week, Kate, Quinn (our resident cosplay tutorial blogger), and Matt (our budget guy and Kate’s S/O) went to Dreamhack Austin 2017. As only the second DHATX and their first, they were surprised to see the differences between a giant LAN party, Esports tournament hub, and the traditional comic/gaming expo hall. They talk cosplay, the tournaments – a lot of Hearthstone – and the awesome charities that were there this year. If you went to DHATX17, let us know how you think it went and what you think we missed!

Correction:
— The #AlliedStrong Hi-Rez charity stream took place a year ago.
— The pro team name we couldn’t remember was Tempo Storm
