World of Warcraft Comes to Life in a Czech Forest

Czech World of Warcraft followers donned costumes on Saturday to carry the massively common on-line sport to life, pushing forward with a scaled-back pageant after the coronavirus pandemic postponed the annual occasion earlier this 12 months. Dressed as shamans, elves and knights, the gaming followers took half in video games and competitions in a forest in Kamyk nad Vltavou, south of Prague, however the regular live-action battle was scrapped resulting from a low turnout.

The annual spring pageant normally attracts as much as 200 followers however organisers mentioned turnout was solely about 60 this 12 months after the delay attributable to coronavirus lockdowns in Europe.

“We are just happy that this year (the festival) is happening,” mentioned Eliska Pabl Kaplanova, one of many organisers. “So this year it’s a smaller stage.”

The on-line role-playing sport has turn into a cultural phenomenon since launching in 2004, with tens of millions of gamers worldwide.

Jaroslav Racek, a policeman by day, mentioned he was making his seventh go to to the Czech occasion and that for him it was an opportunity to be immersed in one thing completely different.

“There is a great group of people here,” he mentioned, dressed as a “Burning Legion” demon. “A person can enjoy himself in this world and not just sit at a computer.”
