Main Topic

Dreamhack Denver Survival Guide:

  • MOST IMPORTANTLY: If you ever plan on going to an event like this, especially a Dreamhack, remember to go back and listen to this episode the month before or the week of. I made this mistake with the Hero Power guys breaking down Dreamhack Atlanta.
  • Prioritize, prioritize, prioritize. You will not be able to do everything. There’s just no way. So think through, “What are the things I would be really sad to miss out on?”
    • Hearthstone tournament took all of Friday night and Saturday until early afternoon. Side event then took the rest of that night and Sunday morning. Pick your battles
    • Lots of fun to watch the matches live with all the fans and a lot of pros there.
  • Hearthstone Area Tips
  • Check if there’s wifi. Surprisingly, there wasn’t.
  • Watch out for swag and giveaways! They’re sneaky sometimes. Monster is amazing
  • Board games, card games, arcade, VR… Even a BYOC for people who didn’t BYOC
  • Bring snacks… Or full meals.

 

Is Coaching and playing with other players useful? Does it speed up development?
