Season Four, Event 88: 3 Hour Cutthroat Party

This league has Cutthroat and Hardcore enabled, when you die to enemies of any type you will be moved to Standard league.

A summary of hardcore Cutthroat rules:
  • This is a separate short-duration league that has its own stash (as usual). At the end of the event, characters and stashed items will be moved to Hardcore.
  • There's a PvP damage multiplier because players start with a lot more life than they do damage. This multiplier will be adjusted substantially based on feedback from this event and others.
  • Players are hostile by default to players who are not in their party.
  • You can ctrl+click on the entrance to an area to use the Instance Management screen to manually enter any other player's instance of an area.
  • Cut-throat instances can hold a maximum of 12 players.
  • This is a hardcore league. When you die, you will be moved to standard league, you lose the normal experience penalty for your difficulty plus 30% of your current level. You also drop all inventory and equipped items. Your flasks, skill gems (even ones in your inventory) and quest items are not dropped.
  • If you were killed by another player, your lost experience is split among their party.
  • If you attempt to abruptly leave the game in a non-town instance, you have to wait 5 seconds and are unable to move or use flasks.
  • The grace period of invulnerability upon entering an area is 20 seconds. This should start once the player is mostly done loading.
  • Non-partied players only show up on the map if they're nearby.
  • There are no notifications for players joining or leaving areas.
  • Portals cannot be used until they have been up for five seconds.
  • You cannot apply microtransaction effects to items in cut-throat. You may dance and have pets.

Well was fun killing #1 and 2.

Got freeze locked some min b4 the end.

Started 45 minutes late. Soloed to 24 without killing anyone. Had the sickest RNG I've ever had, found 15% movespeed boots and WED at the beginning of A2 lol. Had around 750dps dual strike linked with WED & added cold. Went back and killed a few mid levels. Tried to take out the party of bestpvpernz & bigbokchoi but got bear trapped for the rip. Good fun, though I think for a 3hr cutthroat, solo is a much better format than party.

Edit: Also, I think points should definitely still be given to dead characters in cutthroat events as they are in descent etc. This way high level characters are encouraged to actually engage in pvp with other high level characters.

Well looking at the amount of players/parties I would prefer solo as well but the shedule is horrible anyway.
