It's on. June 1. Incursion League. Still hardcore, 3 day race, prize pool increased to 160 steem. Free entry. No resteem required.
Path of Exile is incredible. It's totally free to download and play, and purchases only confer cosmetic benefits, so success is all about skill.
This league looks insane. Sort of a Butterfly Effect, time travel vibe.
Countdown timer - Here
I'm slimming it down from a 7 day comp to 3 days, and I'll be awarding 20 steem to the highest ranked character in each class
There'll be an additional 20 steem awarded to the highest level character overall.
If two or more players have evenly leveled characters, the prize will be split evenly.
If a character has died, the level they achieved is irrelevant.
The higher you go, the more you have to lose.
If you're way out in front it may even be worth resting them and starting a backup character.

We need to track your progress publicly. (See my account/characters here.)
You'll want to create a new character.
Make sure you choose the red, "Hardcore" banner or your char will be softcore; which isn't suitable for grown ups and wins nothing. Their name should start with "SHR_"
If your character dies, that's obviously a setback, but you can start again with somebody new.
It may seem that others have an unassailable lead, but they can die too.
It's quite possible that a mad dash for the finish line may be the undoing of one or many of your competitors.
If you're equipped to record and/or stream, please do so.

Glorious deaths are bittersweet and better shared.
I've been there. I miss them too.
Post your intention to compete, using #poecomp as the first tag.
Tell us about yourself. Are you a grizzled veteran, or an eager newcomer?
Will you be dealing physical damage up close and personal, or raising an army of the dead to fight on your behalf?
Will you lay traps, mines and totems to outwit the enemy, or stick 'em with poisoned arrows from a distance?
Are you going to charge headlong into each level, or take it slow and stay alive?
Will you check the other accounts, and choose an under-represented character, or forge on with your favourite?
Let's get this party started, people. Valhalla's not going to fill itself
