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.
Always wanted to try cuttroat race, but time was always inconvenient. Today friends were offline, so i was doing it solo. Died first 2 times, but at 3d eventually understood how it works, hit lvl 7 and got 3 uniques with iron price :) ( it was at the last 15 minutes through)
I wish that cutthroat races will be signature in next season, never had so much fun!
