Community Race Organizers Brittleknee and Rex are teaming up to host an Alternate Start Duos event this weekend. It takes place over two days, where Day One is centred around strategy and preparation, and Day Two is the Alternate Start race itself. Racers will compete from A10 Kitava until they defeat Awakener at Awakening Level 5.

Day One: October 23rd: 9:00AM (PDT) (countdown available here)
Day Two: October 24th: 9:00AM (PDT) (countdown available here)

This race is open to all Qualified Racers in the PoECR Discord. To join the discord and learn more about the Qualification process, click here.

Whats the point when everyone can't participate? Are there ever going to be official races again?
Just a lowly standard player, often found in global 2.
(Ignore the challenges completed this league. I'm only here to grab Heist by the pussy...I mean I want the cat pet!) :P

they don't want bots farming the race prizes so if you aren't a bot and are good at the game maybe you should just apply to be allowed to race idk

The official races only had alt art prizes, so bots aren't part of this equation imo...

Edit: originally said mtx prizes, they're alt arts.

Double edit: I'm horrible at the game but enjoy the races. :P

Looking up alt art on pathofexile.com/trade shows alt art items selling for 35 exalted or more so im sure bots would love to get their hands on them
