Thanks Chris. Now all of us non-racers who want to pretend we can actually do it, have an option to get points - just a lot slower :)

Really appreciate adding a point for lower level.
Still here, professional forum lurker at the moment.

Contact support@grindinggear.com to report issues relating to the game or forum. Thanks!
Oh, that new lower level bracket is nice of them to add.

PS But will try to get 20 lvl %).
if you can't spend all three hours online. just go for the new, lower level reward plus the First To Clear rewards on normal.
LFG group with TS/Vent for races 15 and 16. I am currently in the top 100 overall for season 1, and usually go full chese shadow PA/FT or 2H Marauder. PM me if you're able to clear act 2 in a 3 hour race. Hopefully you are mature, with skype/teamspeak, and you're Looking for a semi-balanced team to share drops/resources with.
Buy the ticket, take the ride.

Again GGG listen to their players and rise to the occasion. I had previously written that it would be a good thing to reward new racers with 1-2 RP minimum level requirement tiers and noticed from this race onwards:

Prizes for reaching specific levels and staying alive:
..
Level 20-23: 3 Reward Points
Level 11-19: 1 Reward Point

Kudos to whoever pushed this through. Now casuals have no excuse not to try out these races as the minimum tier is manageable and they're encouraged with a base point. I wish to counter those that may think of this as an entitlement that 1 RP is not going to break the current racing system but it will make more people play and hopefully eventually increase competitive skill over time. Also if a racer unfortunately dies mid-race instead of packing it in they may decide to race just for that single RP - I know I would.

Thanks GGG! Now about those One Week Race rewards... same idea needs to be applied. 1 RP for reaching a minimum level at least?

Not necessarily a good thing. 3-hour late night race with work in the morning. There's every chance that I'll die mid-race. Now instead of getting to go to bed, I'll be re-rolling to go for the 1 RP...

But seriously, I like this. With some luck I might be able to get the ring this season, instead of just the shoes. :)
