I think it would be fun if you awarded a slew single point awards on some more random/fun stats.:
First unique drop , linked like a top death.
last hits per period of time. (First 5 mins / 20 mins )
Vendor recipie first
Slow and steady or thorough reward set for most experience before advancing set check points. (Most Xp ore submerged caverns / shipyards / the forest etc)
They could could all be a single point I am not trying to get easy points just make some achievable goals that don't encourage slipping as much content as you can and farming narrow zones undead clusters. Basically if you aren't with a group with runners etcetera trusting this like its iron man of gaming kit becomes clear about 5 min in you are just grindingfor a generic leveled without dying award.

If anyone is interested in a group of six and you know what you are doing please PM me with your information, I will contact you via PM with mumble information. Need Three atm. Want to take people who really know how to race and want to push hard for three hours. Do not PM if you stand in town or do not know the build you will be doing.(I love teaching, just not during a race.)

It would be fun to have a big raffle at the end of each race where each player gets 1 raffle "ticket" for each level of their highest level character made in that race. That way even players who don't race well can at least have a shot at a lottery-style prize at the end.
The Analytical Engine has no pretensions whatever to originate anything. It can do whatever we know how to order it to perform.

Hey guys! I already messaged two people from this thread about the race.
But in case they don't invite me I'll post here as well.
So far I have only been racing solo. And unfortunately none of my real life friends seem to be playing now.
My best race result was probably level 23.5 in a 2 hour race as Shadow (solo).
I feel I could do a lot better once I become even more familiar with the best routes, timings, strategies. My highest level character is under Level 30 so I think my overall lack of play time has delayed me being good with races. But I am improving and usually experimenting with slight variations to my solo runs to see what works best.
I am gonna run this race solo if nobody invites me like usual. But I think it would be more fun to try it with a group this time :)
I am looking for a group that can at least get level 27 since I am able to do that solo. Anything higher than that would just be bonus for me.
I am most familiar with Shadow but willing to player Marauder, Ranger, or Duelist if necessary.

Duoed with my friend again. I went ranger started with PA was going to switch to LA. Got first to level 7, 8 and 9, as well as first to rocky climb and lower prison. (Was JeTiRACE) Ran through prisoners gate because it's dangerous, while my friend ran to hailrake and farmed ledge a bit. Hailrake took me all of 15 seconds, so didn't lose much there. But since I didn't farm prisoners at all everyone passed me. Got to Coves easily, but there were no mobs there, so hit Caverns at 10.5 for me and not 10 for him. Got to Caverns of Anger, desync died to the unique merveil person after we ran passed her. Happens. Really need more people to group with that know what they're doing. The other person I run with isn't on these times, so couldn't bring him in.
If you guys know what you're doing, please feel free to message me if you want to group up or something. We use skype, but if you have a teamspeak/mumble or something we can use that. If you do message, please include what races you've done/what rank you got.

Dangit, got disconnected at level 19 in Western Forest after desync for a few seconds. Didn't even realize I died during this till I hit 20 ^^
Should probably try to remember to always just log out instantly upon desync.
Today was VERY laggy for me probably worst race yet in that respect :(
