Weekend Races with Roccat Hardware Prizes

This weekend, we're running four special one-hour race events. The gaming hardware company Roccat has kindly donated some hardware for us to award as physical prizes to winners and entrants.

These events are outside of our regular Season Four schedule - rather than awarding season reward points, they award physical Roccat hardware prizes.

We're running four one-hour events at different times, so that players can hopefully play in at least one regardless of their timezone. The results of all of the events are combined and the highest character from each account is considered.

The events are at: (click through for times in your timezone)


From the combined results, the top five players by experience receive a full set of Roccat gaming gear:


If there is an experience tie between players, it will be broken randomly.

Any player who reaches at least level 15 in any of the four events is put into a random draw to receive one of five:


Any player who reaches at least level 8 in any of the four events is put into a random draw to receive one of ten:


This means that players who play in multiple events do receive a small advantage (the ability to try to get a better result the second time), but it's certainly possible to win a large or small prize by just entering one event if you're skilled or lucky.

These races are hardcore (deaths are permanent) but dead characters are still eligible for prizes. For example, if you reach level 9 and die, you can't level up any further on that character, but you still enter the draw for a prize.

Players can only win one prize each. Prizes are awarded from the top of the prize list downwards, so once you've won a prize you're excluded from other ones.

Players should not enter with multiple accounts to have more chances to win. We will disqualify any entrants who do this.

Grinding Gear Games employees may enter the events but are not eligible for prizes. Our decisions regarding prize awarding are final.

Roccat will ship the prizes out to you at their expense. We'd like to thank them for their extremely generous contribution of the prizes. I haven't added up how much it all costs, but it's clearly many thousands of dollars plus shipping and they're giving it directly to our community.

They probably got some attention when they bought bulk for the new office.
