This September we're teaming up with community streamer Zizaran to host a boss-kill event where players can compete to kill The Awakener while playing in Heist HC SSF mode. Zizaran's event sponsor, Shopify, will be teaming up with him to supply $40,000 to the race's prize pool. On top of the cash prizes for players, there will also be microtransaction prizes provided by us. To top it all off, Shopify will be supplying $13,000 in microtransactions to community streamers to give away during the event! Find out more in this news post.
How to ParticipateThis event runs for the first month of Heist, starting on September 18 (PDT). Only characters playing in the Heist HC SSF League will be counted for the cash prize.
As normal, you can place Watchstones in Citadels in the Atlas. These level up your maps and make defeating The Awakener more difficult. Only kills with a fully-Watchstoned Atlas will be counted.
We are creating two custom ladders (order and number of kills of The Awakener) and will link them from this post once the Heist expansion is deployed and the ladders are available.
Cash PrizesWe will create a special ladder that records the order that players kill The Awakener with a fully-Watchstoned Atlas in the Heist HC SSF league. The cash prize pool provided by Shopify ($30,000) and Zizaran ($10,000) will be distributed as follows:
Randomly-drawn Microtransaction PrizesAny player who kills the Awakener on any of the following leagues (Heist, Heist HC, Heist SSF, Heist HC SSF) within the first month will be eligible to win the below prizes. It's possible to win more than one per account. The number listed below is the total number of each microtransaction up for grabs.
Console Prizes(UPDATED) The first eight players to kill The Awakener on Heist SSF on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 (16 players total) will win console-specific codes.
The first eight players on Xbox One will win a 12 months Game Pass Ultimate Subscription valid from October 16th, 2020 to October 15th, 2021.
The first four players on PlayStation 4 will win a one year subscription for PlayStation Plus. The next four (ranks 5, 6, 7, 8) will win a one year subscription for PlayStation Now.
Note that any players who kill the Awakener on console in any Heist league will also go in the draw to win the randomly-drawn microtransactions.
Big thanks to Zizaran, Viyro and Shopify for putting on this event!
