Any items remaining in the race stash are transferred to the Hardcore League in a remove-only stash tab.


Any chance this could also be changed to be available in any long-term league, the same way rewards are now available?

Player results throughout the season are scored in a ladder of overall results in these Signature events (https://www.pathofexile.com/signature-races/ladder). There are special prizes (alternate-art Demigod’s Strides) for the three top finishers of each class.
I think in the past, the reward for top 20 players by points was the same as the reward to the top finishers in the signature events. I'm wondering if this is a typo.

Do you see a flaw in your logic here? :-)

Not for casuals, only a handful hardcore players will get the rewards.

In the past they would do raffles at the end of events to give rewards to random participants. Maybe they'll still do that.

Please fix desync. It ruins everything about the game. If desync is never fixed this game will never be successful, it will just be "that d2 clone with the horrible lag"


I don't have too many issues with desync myself.. but if you are able to make macros on your keyboard or mouse, bind a key to type "/oos". This will force a "resync", just in case you notice something seems a bit off.

Please start banning people who whine about desynch in every single fucking thread on the forums regardless of whether it's related to the subject or not.

This is very good info. Since i macro'd /oos, every time i run near a rock, or try to run though NPCs, i press the macro. Amazed how often i would have been stuck with mobs all over my ass if i didnt have the macro
