Pre-Season, Event 11: 1 Hour Cutthroat (PS11)

This is a pre-season race event, no prizes or points will be awarded.

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.
Oh my god. Please, PLEASE make this a regular game type. This is like Dark Souls mixed with POE, and I love it. I always want to play like this.
This time I know it's party run, GGG.
No longer I'll try to invade 3ppl instances being sure its free for all :o

Fix headline plz. Many of us don't read description.
Hateful post.
Sometimes it may happen a dev forgets to add a mode or the time is off.

We had some races with 15 min more time than in description, race ended before it started or a mod was missing such as Turbo.

Support even being illiterates lol.
Need moar solo.
Hateful post.
Good race!

In defense of GGG.. They never specify that it was a solo in the headline, you assumed it on your own. a simple test of inviting someone to your party could have cleared that misunderstanding up..
The reason I prefer HC Cts-->Only good eq drops.

I can't fight some players I killed such as failguy____ with lvl 12 because they seem to have deleted their character after they died.

Terraces the last min was also underwhelming compared to the last 2 cts when I leveled up at terraces because some players of the same/higher level were there.

The biggest issues I see with CT atm:
No 4 lvl difference protection(this would heavily reduce instance management)
Automatic joining instances the first minutes of the race seems impossible if there are over 50 instances on 4 servers visible.
It's impossible to interrupt actions: For example enter a TP and somebody joins the instance but you are already towning despite moving away from the tp, same thing with WPs/next area or skills like multistrike.

Support even being illiterates lol.
Uhm, why is my character still in this league and has not been moved to the standard league? The game disconnects when I try to play him...
OMG So happy to see alot of replies to this thread! And I just want to join in: please make this a regular game type! ASAP!? :D And why not add more modes etc?? PvP gaming adds a lot of new challenges to existing and new players i think.
