3 Hour Cutthroat Party

This is a standard (non-hardcore) party Cutthroat.

A summary of 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.
  • When you die you 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.
Anyone wanna party? PM, please.
Hateful post.
Hey guys got a question, would be great if any got answer me.

The peanelty when you die to a other player, is it all the levels you lose (that you currently got) or is it only the experiance, you lose in that level you are in atm.

Sorry for my bad english.

You lose only progress in current lvl. There is nothing that can actually de-level.
Hateful post.
The experience on your current lv :)

That is all.

TL;DR version:
A ton of fun mixed with some OMG moments, somewhat boring at the end.


It was my second cutthroat (first happened before OB), so I was pretty bad.
My witch was named IcyWaters. Sorry for being annoying.

I started in public team, pretty bad team, I have to admit, sorry, 4 of mates including me were leaplammed and oneshot by HSing marauders in Prisoner's Gate. Gratz.
Then there was strange dance of equipping items on the ground and fighting between these two and me + 2 of my mates.
We killed them, they killed us, there was a mess. But I suppose they grabbed some good items and rushed forward, while our party was shattered and consumed by doomy thoughts. I left them.
I took some stuff and started ganking players at ~11 with freezing pulse, zombies and cold snap. Sorry if I killed you this time, cause I looked for gear.
And I found some, f.e. Lochtonal's Caress gloves, and bunch of other useful nice stuff.
Ganking went easier and better, I decimated some ppl of my level and ofc below, trying not to kill most unleveled chars (like 3-5).

I was about 13 with Added Lightinig - Freezing Pulse - Raize Zombie combo.
People were dropping less and less loot getting more poor (I picked up only upgrades and rares though, letting other stuff lie on the ground). Fun was ending.
But then I guess I pissed off a pair of exiles, who ganked me (actually first time I rushed in, thinking that I can beat them cause they were in Prisoner's Gate). After a tough fight (Cold Snap witch and Viper Strike + Flicker Strike shadow? or duelist?) I went down cause I had only 1 HP flask. Others were 2 mana and 2 speed. I almost entered my tp, but combo was nasty. So, I died. Good fight, though.

I used to pack some loot to my chest, so I took leftovers, and I was still able to fight, cause I wasn't gear-dependent much. I killed some people, not with such an ease as before. But this pair hunted me down again... and again. 3d time I sensed them comming and went through tp in last seconds.

They said in chat that I must leave alone some duelist which I was killing a lot. Hm. Okay, I promised not to touch him, as circumstances were bad for me, I had crap and they were full-geared. So I swallowed it up and got over.

Meanwhile, some crazy people from act2 started to invade act1. I remember 24 lvl guy with big axe, he almost hit me once. I think that would be oneshot. I decided to go forth and kill Merveil half-naked. It was terrible and I died once (but my tp was always up) and spent like 5 scrolls to that lady. I killed some monkeys from the forest and got hit by an idea: I shouldn't go to act2. Cause I will be 100% raped then. So I came back to ganking...

...which became boring as hell. Pair of hunters disappeared, others were too weak for me. I remember cases when I invaded, saw char lvl and went back to base. But I killed some guys with lvls 8-10 who were trying to gank people at waypoint. As I became incredibely bored, I started reading chat. It seems some people were trolling a marauder in Terraces. We all know that marauders aren't very mobile at start. So I invaded, killed lvl 12 naked templar trapper and some archer who were killing poor guy. I partied with him, spared him some loot, escorted him to Tidal Island where he could take QS flask, but he DC'd before Hailrake. Ok.

Last minutes I spent on Ledge, where group of 3 guys with 8-9 level trying to kill me. I was kidding around casting cold snap, and my zombies were killing frozen target. But there my flasks went empty, and I ran forward kind of unique boss-style, raising zombies and trying to get these guys. They were dying and respawning (I didn't took loot) and I was more and more damaged while playing unseriously. After 4-5 minutes they managed to kill me. I was ok with this. If you read this, guys, don't be offended, it was curious and fun. Sorry if it was kinda trolling.

Remembered players (sup, guys!):
Some guy, who said that he will never again enter public parties and left from other party :)
My fellow party, messing around and dying with me.
2 marauders we crushed out party into.
Poor duelist whom I used to kill often.
Pair of gankers, good job!
Lvl 12 or around templar with traps. I believe it was him who trapped instance entrance in Graveyard, this shock killed my zombies instantly, when I invaded.
Big scary axe guy from act 2.
Poor marauder, who wasn't able to pass through Terraces.
Hateful post.
