Community Racing Class Race to Level 80 - May 30th - 4PM UTC - Open to Everyone!

Hey, everyone!

I've returned with another post to announce the May 30th race! I'm working with Rex again to bring you guys a Class Race to Level 80! Similar to the Demigod races of old, those finishing top of their class will receive rewards!

This one is open to the entire community so if you want to test your speed against the very best, be sure to sign up!

Race rules, prizes, etc, can be found below! If you're already excited and want to sign up right away, click here: https://www.pathofexile.com/private-leagues/league/PoECR+Class+Race+Day

Edit: There's only a few of us approving the applications, but we will get to you! We'll be adding slots as needed, too! If the league appears full, just stop back by in a few hours!



PoE Community Class Race - May 30th 4pm UTC - SSFHC Delirium

Test your might with the class of your choice in the upcoming race! Pick your favorite class, or try your hand at a lesser-played class in order to secure a win!

There are prizes for the top 3 of each class, with a grand prize for first overall. However, the run time of this league will be 12 hours and anyone reaching level 80 within this time frame will be eligible to win the additional raffle prizes! This will allow players who cannot start at the race start time to still compete, in addition to allowing those who are not the fastest a chance to win in order to make the event more community-friendly.

It is also our wish to not make streaming a requirement. While strongly encouraged, we understand PoE is an international game with players of many different circumstances. We do not wish to exclude those who do not have top of the line equipment from participating in an event that could help better their situation.



Entering the Race:

Anyone who would like to enter may do so by applying to the league. We've prepared for up to 1,000 participants, so there's plenty of room! If the even size exceeds this we may have to do a bit of crowdfunding.

Race Rules:

The race will begin at 4pm UTC on the 30th of May, 2020. The first person, regardless of class and ascendancy will win the overall prize in addition to the prize for their class.

Ascendancy does not matter, as prizes are given only by overall class. So, choose wisely!

If you are competing for a top 3 finish in your class but are unable to stream, you will need to provide us a screenshot with your character sheet showing you are level 80 with the league information visible in the top right corner in the same screen by hitting Tab (default). You will also want to use a timer such as Wsplit http://cdn.speedrunslive.com/tools/WSplit_1.5.2.zip. You must also go into options and enable the time for the client, and during submission make sure to provide the difference between your local time and UTC.

Racers will only be able to take a top three prize once. If a racer fails to obtain a top 3 in one class, they can reroll a different class in order to try and compete there until all top 3s are completed for those classes.

If competing for a raffle prize, multiple 80s will not create multiple tickets into the raffle.



Prize Information:
All Prizes and Leagues have been funded by Rex! Thank you!

First Overall: Eyrie Supporter Pack

First in Class: Basilisk Supporter Pack
Second in Class: Darkseer Supporter Pack
Third in Class: 200 Points Pack

Sorry, that's related to official events only, like Flashback races, but those haven't been organized in a while.

Every other one I've seen specifically said that somewhere, so I applied anyways. I'm really hoping you're wrong, I need another stash tab pretty bad. Delirium has just become way too tedious to keep playing, with Simulacrum just spewing mountains of good stuff at you.
Need a new signature, cuz name change. I dunno though. I guess this seems fine. Yeah, this is good.
