(May 25/26) 3 Hour HC Ladder Race

This is a temporary three hour league with prizes. We are running it at a different time than normal so that people who are unable to play at the usual time get an opportunity here. Note that the prize structure has changed slightly - only the top three of each class are rewarded, but the rewards are greater. The full-clear, quest and spot prizes are still the same.

It will run from 1pm to 4pm New Zealand time on Saturday (May 26 2012). This is 6pm Friday, Pacific time. Here is a link for more time zone conversions. Note that this is a different time than normal!

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.

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.

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.
