After a two-hour test of this new mode on Friday, we're trying a three hour race event to see how people do. Note that we only intend to use this mode sparingly, so we will probably have a normal hardcore race next weekend.

Sweet in the 2 hour, I killed weaver so I could get LMP. I get that as soon as possible or else Im basically just leeching during act2 =P. It sucks how there was no yellow message for anyone killing Fairgraves.

I died once at prisoners gate in the 3 hour, was clearing with the party but then suddenly everyone stopped running ahead and I found myself in a massive group of goatmen and mobs alone. The shadow let me use his unique bow for the last 15 min of the race, thanks =)

was fun, esp brutus. Idk if Ill do this weekend, maybe a little for some rewards. Party races just arnt for me, I think this makes that even more so. But hey, didnt do too bad with my luck and going solo, made it to the top 10 at least, gg everyone.

Spoiler


Have to say, was way too scared to even try the graveyard quest. Just thinking about 60% flicker strike mobs was bad enough. Some of the act 2 boss's would probably be insane too, if I had gotten that far. Makes soloing a much more enriching experience though, I wonder if that would carry into cruel and ruthless, as those are normally auto pilot mode. Merv was pretty fun till she bugged into the water somehow too, not sure how that happened, couldn't melee her after that, but was able to ranged her down, so no biggie. Good fun GGG!

This will be very interesting, the difference between a 2hour and 3hour is substantial, you have to make the call about going to Cruel Ledge, which will mean having to do 2*Bandits and Vaal, even the Lightning Strike guy all with Attack/Move speed, these will be the biggest challenges.

Should be fun, especially with no practice on those bosses prior to this.

For the love of god give me another week at least before another one. I'm still recovering, it's nice to casually level. lol

Although I would like another this month. They are extreme fun.

Yeah i can understand one now right away would be abit too much for most people Though you dont have to attend them all if you dont want too :)

But for me, that has about 0 social life and no job id prefer if there was 1 week races starting every monday :P Normal Hardcore is kinda boring now after i participated in the last few races.

But hopefully more races after OB starts, im sure i can find something waste my time on between races anyways.

If they come around I feel the need to do them because I don't know if or when another is coming. Not next week but the following and I'd be more than happy to join in. I just want to finishing my testing before the next one starts up.
