Does the name of the race imply some different mechanic? Or it's plain old race just with different reward types?
There could be a better explanation of the race, like a lore, "fixed seed" means nothing to me unless I am missing something or looking for explanation on the wrong place, in that case excuse me.

Some of the explanations can be hard to find, and I didn't know what "fixed seed" meant until I played one.
In fixed seed events, everyone has exactly the same maps, and the level layout is fully revealed on the mini-map. So you don't have to waste time finding the bandit camp in the Western Forest or where the entrance to the Vaal Ruins is for example.

Also, the layout remains same throughout the seasons because of "fixed seed" (to the random generator)

on pace for record run, but white mobs brought out the tractor beam and got me
CT should be around the art of PKing and not griefing lower levels.

was about to fall asleep while I was in sarn, so went to log off, saw zoroxo died, so kept going cause it put me at first scion.
volatile 1 shot me, again.
not being able to read rare mods while charging flameblast is pretty cool stuff. also, volatile shouldn't spawn in normal or the damage needs to be toned down in normal.

Spent half the race with debilitating lag, but it was still fun! Made it to level 11 and lived until the end, which is great for me.

I have so much respect for people getting to level 29. I honestly don't know where I can cut down on dead time to even get to act 2. Feels like I'm running and fighting the entire time, but still only able to get to the Siren boss as lvl 14. Almost exactly the same result both as ranger and witch.
The random prizes, are they awarded straight after the event, and can you see winners somewhere?
