LOL first unique ever in descent champs and I get 2 of the same one off Brutus kill
was a fun race desync at last min was scary
That was the fucking worst D:C ever. I died 4 times at Rukuku. FOUR TIMES. What the actual fuck? I never had much problems with him but this time I don't know what was wrong. One of the invisible ports. When I died the fourth time I even rolled for elemental res on my flask just to survive. Ended up insta dying to 3 arc crits in a row + tons of sparks while being triple shock stacked. -.-

If only I had gotten my Composite Bow sooner. Still, got a personal best in terms of level (18 and some change) and 14th Ranger--not too bad if I do say so myself.

It could just be me, but has anyone else been wholly dissatisfied with the scheduling and modification of this season and the signature?

Having only really gotten into racing last season, I was really excited when they announced Champions as the signature race, because it's really fun and novel. But with the way it has been scheduled, namely during typically daytime U.S. business hours or absurdly late here, almost EVERY time . . . I honestly found it immensely easier to catch these races last season . . . and the signature at the time was easier to catch too.

I've also noticed a lot of people seem to enjoy the smaller map and time frame, but I've found that I hate it. What was once pretty fast-paced, yet fun to explore, has become a belabored haul to get anywhere before the event ends while mostly just racing against lag and desync's assassination attempts on my underlevelled character. And if there is a sudden update, a disconnect or some reason I have to start late, I've lost a massive amount of the race.

I thought 85 minutes was a bit too long last season, but 40 seems quite a bit too short for this.

does anyone else find this frustrating?

Yep, i'm at 572 points now and would have been 800 if it was scheduled more randomly, even if i only work 3 hours a day (+40 min traveling) i miss 90% of all the descent champions.
