For what it's worth / input to GGG, I love this 8 hour and it's reward structure.

As a casual player who usually aims for 4pts, this has the right balance of rewards for me. I don't expect to be getting 7pts from a party race as I'm usually in a duo with a RL friend (hey, anyone else want to join us?) - but we both think 5pts is easily achievable (maybe even 6!) and the 8 hours even lets us factor in some scheduled breaks for food & house hold duties (Dog walking, dinner with spouse, blah).

For the 7 Day events I wouldn't even create a new main, the level rewards are out of my reach (real life commitments, damn them) and I'd rather have access to my stash. But for this 8 hour, I think we'll both be creating new mains or at least alts. Which I think is what the longer duration events should encourage.

We would love to see this event repeated in the future :)

Edit: Wow? My first post? Thought I'd have chipped in before now.

Huh, so easy to get 6points in this one???
point brackets are quite strange!

the gigantic 39-49 bracket will probably make 95% of people stop at 39
IGN : asdfmaan
i have to agree with asdf on that point..u guys should make something between that since u can get in 3 hours to 40 with good RNG...rest seems fine tho

Level 56: 10 Reward Points
Level 50-55: 7 Reward Points
Level 39-49: 6 Reward Points

i would suggest
Level 56: 10 Points
Level 44-50 7 Points
Level 30-39 6 Points

So when u are lvl 40 or 51 u get what exactly? And are you really suggesting 6points for lvl 30? :DDD

That 6 point bracket spans 10 levels...
To me, these brackets seem rather poorly divided. Has there been any discussion about adding an extra tier for these longer races? For example, you could add an 8 point reward tier to better spread out the level rewards instead of cramming them all into the 6 point slot. It seems ridiculous that one person can get the same amount of points as some one 10 levels above them. And at the 6 point tier no less, the 3rd highest tier there is.

I love these long party races since there are so few of them but the reward points are a bit odd.
