Banned Skills

For the first time ever Gauntlet will officially have “Banned Skill Gems”.

The use of any of these skills on any character will forfeit your right to claim any part of the prize pool including bounties, flash bounties and the main prize pool. Do not equip the skill gems!

Players that do not wish to compete for the prize pool can play any skill they want. You will still be eligible for raffles.

In addition, streamers and their communities will be able to create a bounty with the money they fundraise for the event. Bounties are a custom prize that can be awarded to players for achieving a specified goal in the event. This Gauntlet will also have Flash bounties, which are bounties that will pop up in the Racing Discord during the event!

      Neat

      The banner picture reminds me of the time God gamer Quin69 managed to hit nearly every Sanctum ball trap on the screen, truly impressive.

      in chris we trust <3
      Really wish the prize pool's were for ascendancy not for class.... how are we expected to compete with streamers and no.lifers?
      Have you all considered increasing racing revenue by having ingame tickets/consumable/skin to purchase for races. Kind of similar to Dota 2 events where the prize pool becomes in the millions.

      There are many bounties that are based just on pure luck that you can go for, it is hard to justify someone who can't put the time to play winning any money, also the players that are the best at long races are also the most efficient when time is limited, imexile is the prime exemple of that, so it wouldnt make much of a difference.
