You'll notice we're using a new format for describing the leagues now. Most of the rules text has been pulled out into the rules post, so that these posts require less reading.

Edit: Yes, before you ask, there is a cut-throat event this weekend too. Writing up the post now...

Any thoughts, ETA, of the solo only race possibility?
"When I close my eyes, I see this thing, a sign, I see this name in bright blue neon lights with a purple outline. And this name is so bright and so sharp that the sign - it just blows up because the name is so powerful... It says, "Diamond Supporter."
Well I still cant make it for the cut-throat event, but at least I can be there for this one. See you all there =)
Awesome, I should be able to compete in this event. Doubt I'll get any rewards besides the lvl ones. Regardless, should be a blast.

Love the events, makes the game way more exciting (not that it's not). Please don't stop doing these.

Really? Hardcore races with such a buggy client? Desyncs, disconnects and crashes - OH MYYYYY!

I have made this suggestion in the suggestions thread but I believe it has been lost in the ether.

Please can you add a "/myladder" game command that will show you own current location on the ladder during the races?

Edit:
The Friends Tab - there are icon/shields that show in which difficulty a friend is. What we need tho is something to show which "League" that friend is playing.

It will be 23:00 11 August 2012 in South Africa GMT+2

They don't want to discourage parties, it's bad enough the loot system does. :p

It's like they want us to be angry at them for not making netcode fixes a priority. I don't want much, just the location of the enemy and myself to be close. When I died 3 screens away from the mobs attacking me (without phase run), there was time for me to walk slowly 3 screens away before it even attempted to rubberband me back where the server thought I was. Ideally, they should nix the hardcore part of the ladder race until they address netcode.

I think Chris said at the last event they would look into a solo run event.
"When I close my eyes, I see this thing, a sign, I see this name in bright blue neon lights with a purple outline. And this name is so bright and so sharp that the sign - it just blows up because the name is so powerful... It says, "Diamond Supporter."
do the random currency items go to whatever account you would like or just to that hardcore character?
