Due to Descent being a new league type, these values are subject to change during the early phases of season three.
Are there any plans of making a longer Descent race? 90-120 minutes, with the rewards maybe starting at level 13-15 or 16-18, so rushing might make it pointless as you may arrive to the last level with more time than expected/needed and a limited farm for experience.
Yeah I think after the season is over GGG should just run a descent league for like a day. Give people a chance to get to the end. That would be great.

This should become a permanent mode. Maybe if it was a little bit longer it'd be like hardcore +. Is there a chance for that?

I was thinking more like this:
you can make a descent event for yourself anytime you want to. it's solo, so you join in, countdown from 1 minute and you start. same 1 hour long. hope they add something like this once the season ends.

Or maybe an event lasting a few hours, or a day or two, that tracks clear time instead of experience. Or they could implement both! Descent is a blast.

No, it should not become a permanent mode. The whole 1-hour-signature-event thing is what makes it special and fun.

Yeah, I'd agree with that. It's the limited opportunity to play that makes Descent more exciting.

The worst part about this race is how stupid I feel for even taking my time to play it.
