    Cosplay highlights are also waiting outside the competition. With the "Warcrafters" from Denmark, there is a cosplay group on site that has made a name for itself in the scene with its great passion for the Warcraft universe. At DreamHack Leipzig, they will bring their replica of the Darkmoon Fair from World of Warcraft, where visitors can play the well-known mini-games from the MMORPG classic.
