(May 19/20) Three hour hardcore 0.9.9 race

This is a temporary three hour league with prizes. It is the first such three hour league run under 0.9.9 balance.

It will run from 10am to 1pm New Zealand time on Sunday (May 20 2012). This is 3pm Saturday, Pacific time. Here is a link for more time zone conversions.

The league will be hardcore. Characters who die will be moved out of this league and into the Default league. NEW CHARACTERS MUST BE CREATED IN THIS LEAGUE TO BE ELIGIBLE. After the end of the league, they'll be moved back into the normal Hardcore or Default league depending on whether they died. 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.

Miscellaneous:
The game version will be whatever the current 0.9.9 version is (probably 0.9.9e). Please note that because this is a hardcore league, a single death can disqualify you.

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.

Any news on if these are going to transfer to open beta? Maybe you could transfer them a week or two after open beta starts so no unfair advantage would be gained.
RIP Bolto

What is your reason for believing that particular item will not be wiped for open beta?
It was mentioned a long time ago that these may transfer over. I don't really mind either way, I just can't see myself winning one post open beta.
RIP Bolto

The decision has been made: Demigod's Presences will move to Open Beta (avoiding the wipe) and will also only be available from Closed Beta events. There will be new items for Open Beta events.

Presences from Legacy and Default will both be merged into the one Default Open Beta league. The hardcore ones will go to Open Beta Hardcore.

This is good news, but I assume that since I deleted my HC-Legacy character to remake her in HC that I'm out of luck now? :P
