(May) Public Weekend Event #1

The list of all four events this weekend is here

This is a temporary two hour league with prizes.

It will run from 4pm to 6pm New Zealand time on Saturday (May 12 2012). This is 4am-6am UTC on Saturday May 12. Here is a link for more time zone conversions.

The league will not be hardcore. Deaths are allowed and normal experience penalties apply. NEW CHARACTERS MUST BE CREATED IN THIS LEAGUE TO BE ELIGIBLE. After the end of the league, they'll be moved back into the Default league. The league will be open for character creation 30 minutes before the start of the competition.

Prizes:
At the end of the tournament, we will award the prizes in the Hardcore league on a character that we add to your account. If you want to transfer these prizes to the Default league, then just kill that character.

Our decision on the winners is final. Bugs and mistakes will get in the way for many players and this is why we are running an event like this. If you lose your ability to participate due to a bug, please tell us about it and we'll do our best to fix it. We can't change the outcome of the event due to this.

You just made my day! - I'm still smiting over the scroll wheel/zoom issue but THIS makes up for everything.

Yippeee!

Edit: Gees I totally messed this one up :(
Decided not to take the gem from the first zombie and ran my ass off to mud flats only to forget to grab the way point and then got killed to boot - really a poor effort :(

Yay!

I will be streaming this event at http://www.twitch.tv/aim1essgun

(streaming is allowed right?)
So I see no mention of minions being consider monsters any longer and to not use them while attempting the full clear of the zones. Has this issue finally been fixed or was it just a over sight this warning wasn't put in?
Luke: Sorry we have to leave you here, but it just ain't right to eat your wife's and daughter's brains. Plus you're really disgusting and I don't want to spend anymore time with you.

I can't wait for solo races. It is retarded that Elegia carried that other guy. Oh well
Prizes will be sorted out now. I'll update the thread in less than half an hour I hope!

Thanks Chris. Thanks any stream watchers, and for bearing through my crashes :)

Shadow does not seem too good for ladder races. Not having a melee AoE skill kind of slows ya down!

No joke. I kept looking for Cleave but it never happened. Not finding a weapon better than a lvl 7 whalebone rapier kind of slows you down too. :/ And disconnecting 3 times in a row..
