Announcing the One-Month Leagues (and Ambush/Invasion Challenge Winners)

We're running a one-month league event from noon Saturday July 12 (NZ time) to noon Saturday August 9 (NZ time). Today's news post covers the details of the event and congratulates the winners of the Ambush and Invasion challenge leagues. Update: We'll also be running a hardcore event with the same rules at the same time!

The starting time in the PDT timezone is 5pm Friday July 11. This is 2am on Saturday in the CEST timezone.

The primary event is a non-hardcore event (deaths don't cause your character to leave the event), but we're also running a hardcore event with the same rules for people who want an extra challenge.

We've had many requests to bring back previous league properties in interesting combinations for a race event. This one-month event has the following seven sets of properties, lasting for four days each:
  • Anarchy and Invasion
  • Anarchy and Ambush
  • Ambush and Nemesis
  • Anarchy, Ambush and Nemesis
  • Ambush and Onslaught
  • Onslaught and Nemesis
  • Onslaught, Nemesis and Invasion

To describe each of these properties:
  • Anarchy: Rogue Exiles spawn at a substantially increased rate - quite a lot more than they do in the core game. Still less than one per area on average though!
  • Onslaught: 20% increased monster movement, attack and cast speed.
  • Nemesis: Every rare monster will have a Nemesis mod. Inner Treasure will occur at a much higher rate than it ever has before.
  • Ambush: Exactly like the recent Ambush league, craftable Strongboxes will spawn.
  • Invasion: A powerful Invader will spawn in each area. There is a greater variety of guest monsters when this property is in place.
  • Domination: Shrines are already present in the core game and we feel that ramping up their rate to create a sixth property isn't really necessary.

League-specific uniques will not spawn in this event.

Prizes
We'll pick winners randomly from the people who reach the following levels or higher. The prize levels continue to stack as you level up. You can win prizes from multiple tiers. Both the events draw from the same prize pool (i.e. it doesn't matter which you enter, but if you want an extra challenge, play in the hardcore one). Dead hardcore characters are eligible for prizes corresponding to the level they reached.

Prizes available in the random draw include:

In addition, the top five players (from each event) by experience will receive an alternate-art Demigod's Bounty. If multiple players are tied at level 100, then the first five players to reach it will receive the prize.

Other Rules
  • The single highest level character in this league on your account will be considered.
  • Do not enter with multiple accounts - this will disqualify you.
  • GGG Staff members are not eligible for prizes.

This should be awesome
Non-hardcore league is saddening.

Awesome! Very nice!

Edit: Wait what??? Non-hardcore?!? A race with no real challenge, smh. How about a SC and HC version and split the prices in half? Been waiting forever for this news and it is very disappointing to be honest.

Nice!
:D ... awesome
Oh my..
Goodness =O. I guess it's hardcore because of the event length. It's a good time to level up a character and win something.
GGG had charisma, intelligence and power, but they wasted it because of an stupid idea: ending desynch. They thought themselves as the saviors of Path of Exile, but they ended as the destroyers of Path of Exile.

Desynch is not a sin, but vanity is.
